The #1 New York Times bestselling author of “first-rate romance” (Daily News, New York) returns with this dazzling Malory novel following a pirate’s daughter as she plots vengeance on the aristocratic rogue who embroiled her in a scandal.
When Gabrielle Brooks sets sail from England to the Caribbean in search of her estranged father, she has no idea that she’s in for the shock of her life—her father is a pirate. After three thrilling years hunting treasure with him, she’s devastated when he insists she leave the swashbuckling life behind and find a proper husband in London.
He arranges for his old friend James Malory and his wife, Georgina, to sponsor her in polite society. Gabrielle isn’t impressed with the extravagant balls and parties…until she meets Georgina’s brother Drew Anderson, a dashing American sea captain. But when Drew destroys Gabrielle’s reputation the night before he’s to set sail, the pirate’s daughter vows revenge by commandeering Drew’s ship and taking him prisoner. Too bad she didn’t anticipate passion growing on the high sea, or the line between captor and captive blurring.
3 out of 5
I am a true fan of Johanna Lindsey and would have eventually read this anyway because I love the stories of the Mallory family. But, this was just an OK read, not really a page turner. I am still a fan!
Hard to follke
I found the writing and pacing hard to follow and a bit all over. Also, not a huge fan of the sex without consent and over all attitudes of the main characters.
