Devastated by her mother’s death, eighteen-year-old Gabrielle Brooks sets sail from England to a Caribbean island in search of her estranged father. But instead of encountering a distinguished merchant ship’s captain, she discovers her father has become a pirate! After spending three wonderful years sailing and treasure hunting with him, Gabrielle is dismayed when her father decides she must return to London to find a proper husband. His old friend James Malory will sponsor her in polite society. In London, Gabrielle is escorted to balls and parties by James Malory’s wife, Georgina, and her brother, Drew Anderson, a dashing American sea captain who is visiting. Though drawn to Gabrielle’s fiery beauty, Drew, a fun-loving rogue, wants nothing to do with a young woman hunting for a husband. Incensed by Drew’s indifference, Gabrielle is determined to win his attentions. But when Drew embroils her in a scandal the night before he’s to sail back to America, Gabrielle vows revenge. Enlisting the help of her father’s pirate cronies, Gabrielle commandeers Drew’s ship and takes him prisoner. But as passion runs high on their sea voyage, it becomes difficult to tell who is truly the captor and who is the captive.
Wonderful! All the books on the Mallory's are great to read. You will laugh and want to read to books over and over.
This is quite possibly the worst book I've ever had the misfortune to read. I generally don't write comments on the books I've loved or hated, but this novel was so God-awful I wouldn't inflict it on my own worst enemy. The heroine and the hero were ridiculous I couldn't even finish it
