Any woman who says she’s no trouble will be nothing but trouble!

Kidnapped by a fortune hunter who intended to force her hand in marriage, Miss Kitty Wyverne uses her wits and all her resourcefulness to escape the villain… and promptly finds herself in yet another dangerous situation. The small cart she’s taken refuge in, hidden amongst the crates and barrels, is being driven to the Port of Ellesmere by a notorious pirate, Declan Kelly. Handsome, charming, and far too appealing for her peace of mind, Kitty doesn’t trust him, but she’s nonetheless drawn to him.

When Declan discovers Kitty’s presence, it’s like he’s struck gold. She needs safe passage home, and he needs the assistance of a lady in order to gain access to one of his enemies. With the deal struck, they embark on their journey together. Of course, he didn’t count on just how much Kitty would appeal to him and how much he wants her for himself. But neither of them could foresee the complications that would lay ahead when the crew of the Sweet Colleen learns of the reward for Kitty’s return… and that in proclaiming her kidnapping to the world, her father is cementing her status as a fallen woman.

Facing mutiny, deadly storms, and their own growing attraction for one another, Kitty realizes that perhaps being a lady isn’t what she wants, after all.

Not when being The Pirate’s Bluestocking offers passion, excitement and the promise of love.


Declan Kelly is a pirate and a wanted man,  so he's disguised himself to get out of town.  The last thing he needs is a stowaway in his cart. 
Miss Kitty Wyverne has managed to escape the man who abducted her,  now she needs to find her way home at the other end of the country. 
Our hero might be a good sailor but he's a very poor pirate.  He has already got some of his crew to rescue from prison.  Our heroine has spent her life buried in her books.  The only men to ever show an interest just want her inheritance. It's past time for her to stand up for herself. 
A very exciting story and well worth the five stars even though it's not a very fat book.  I fell in love with the characters on the first page.  I would have liked a little more detail,  like what happened to the money.
This book does link to a series but easily read on it's own. 
I loved it.
