What happens when an American heiress to a shipping company crosses paths with a pirate?
Miss Prudence Drake desires nothing more than to return to America and pick up the pieces of her life. After being held captive on the Black Dawn and witnessing her papa’s murder, the last thing she wants is to find herself in the hands of another pirate-even if he is handsome and honorable.
Captain Jasper Blackmore has forsaken his past, walking away from England’s shores in search of a new adventure after the war left him physically scarred and jilted by the one lady he dared to love. An American hoyden could never fit into his world despite his attraction to her.
Can two people whose life paths are at odds find common ground?
I rarely read historical romances that have pirates, but I loved this one! I was drawn in from the start with Prudence and her papa then shocked by his murder. I liked that they had a bit of a connection from the start and that they both had their secrets.
Prudence is a strong girl that knows what she has to do and won’t let anything get in her way. I loved her strong will and that she knew when she could trust Jasper and let everything out.
Jasper may be a pirate, but he is still a gentleman and an honorable one. I loved his story and how he was quick to realize what he needed to do. His secrets will warm our heart and pull at it too.
This is a great quick read!
