Chase Regard is captain of the nearly-historically-accurate pirate ship Cupid’s Revenge, a pirate-themed restaurant and dinner show, and the mountain of debt that came with both. But Chase has an ace up his sleeve: his ancestor left a heap of treasure somewhere on the coast near Ashville, Oregon. All Chase needs to find it is the help of Dr. Jenna Mackenzie, the director of the Ashville Museum. Red-headed Jenna is a fiery, and only occasionally forgetful, academic who loves her quirky small town. But the lure of treasure—and Chase Regard—is hard to resist. As Chase and Jenna grow closer to the treasure and each other, they are forced to contend with a town that may not want to re-write the history of Ashville and make a pirate their hero. And when accusations of theft derail their treasure hunt and their relationship, Chase must find a way to overcome the Ashville resistance and make peace before the fortune and Jenna are completely out of reach. Will Jenna and Chase founder on the rocky shores of Oregon, or will they be able to find Love and Treasure?
Modern Swashbuckling Fun Romance!!
It’s The Goonies + Errol Flynn-style swashbuckling!
Got to love a good pirate story, and this is a great one. Taking a modern twist, with lots of humor, the hunt for treasure leads to romance between wonderfully developed characters!!
The plot/setting made the pirate motif believable in a modern world; the humor made it entertaining; the chemistry made it addicting.
Couldn’t put it down; had to read it in one sitting. Favorite book I’ve read this year!!
