Will she find peril… or pleasure?
Charity Goswick thinks she is escaping an arranged marriage to a brute when she slips onto a ship unnoticed. Little does she realize that this is no honorable vessel of the King’s Navy – it is a pirate ship. It’s just a matter of time before she is discovered by a handsome rake of a pirate, who locks her in his cabin. And while she should be scared, her captor sparks the most unladylike feelings within her…
James Lamont is on the ship for one reason, and one reason only: to track down his brother. However, his spirited little stowaway certainly affords plenty of distraction with her many (failed) attempts to escape. And each time, the unspoken – and unbidden – passion between them grows stronger. But as violence and danger mount on the high seas, Charity will have to put all of her trust in the most untrustworthy of men… the arrogant pirate who just might steal her heart.

And most importantly I liked the fact that in this story pirates are the villain, as they should be, not... ...more

It took a little while for me to warm up to the characters and the story. In the beginning it seemed a little haphazard and the heroine was a little to naive (and wordy). Any how as the story progressed I started to like Charity and James. Their banter became wit... ...more
