Historic Saturday (5)

Someday this meme will become more regular. But when it takes me a while to read a book, everything gets thrown off. =/

To Catch a Pirate
Jade Parker

Once caught, it’s harder still to let a pirate go.

When Annalisa Townsend’s ship is set upon by pirates in search of her father’s treasure, one of the crew, James Sterling, discovers her in the hold. When he moves to take her necklace, she begs him not to, as it is all she has left of her mother. He accepts a kiss in exchange for the necklace. “A fair trade, m’lady,” he tells her afterward, before disappearing.

A year later, with a forged letter of marque, Annalisa is intent on hunting down the wretched James Sterling and reclaiming her father’s treasure from him. But now she’s in danger of him stealing something far more vulnerable this time: her heart.



There's really not much to say here. To Catch a Pirate is a quick read, probably better for a summer day on the beach than a sick day in February. It's very cute, though predictable, and the characters are all very much human. The plots been done before in different time periods with different levels of bad boys and good girls, but if you need some fluff, this is the right book.
