A wicked pirate, a lady-turned cabin boy and a love reaching the distant horizon.

Your next Pirate Adventure awaits You!

A lady’s guide to surviving aboard a pirate ship:
1) Dress as a cabin boy.
2) Avoid drinking too much rum when the handsome captain is around.
3) Do not let the captain kiss you…again.

The last thing Roberta Harcourt needs is to be trapped on a ship with pirates. After she is separated from her father when their ship is attacked, Roberta finds herself the unwilling guest of sinfully handsome Captain Dominic Grey. He gives her two choices: to share his bed and maintain her life as a lady, or she can sleep on the floor of his cabin and live the life of a cabin boy until he decides to set her free. Refusing to be seduced by a pirate, she dresses in breeches and assumes duties on board his ship among the men, but each night, sharing a cabin with the brooding, seductively intense captain, she begins to wonder if letting him kiss her again might be a rule worth breaking…

Dominic lost his innocence long ago when he was kidnapped and sold into indentured servitude in the West Indies. Determined to leave the painful memories of his past behind, he looks only to the future and the next prize he and his crew can capture on the high seas…until he discovers and captures the feisty daughter of a naval admiral. Protecting her from other pirates and preventing her marriage to an English officer is all in a day’s work for a pirate. But Dominic is determined to play the gentleman he once was born to be. He tries to resist the siren’s call of her sweet lips, especially when she’s arguing with him.

But damned if the woman wasn’t meant to be a pirate because she’s stealing his heart…


After an argument with his father young Dominic Greyville made a terrible mistake. Fourteen very difficult years later he is known as Captain Grey, his ship the "Emerald Dragon" one of the best known pirate ships in the West Indies.  The valuable cargo he decides to liberate from an English navy ship is not quite what he expected.  
Roberta Harcourt has been going to sea with her father the Admiral all her life.  She knows he is trying to find her a husband because of all tbe eligible men he introduces to her,  but none appeal the wanderer she is is at heart.  
This is a true swashbuckling adventure on the high seas.  Great fun,  fabulous characters and lots of danger and excitement.  We also get a little teaser for the next book at the end.  
I loved it.
