Pirate Of My Heart


Kindle version available here:

 
From The Publisher:
When her doting father dies, Lady Kendra Townsend is given a choice: marry the horrid man of her cold, money-grubbing uncle’s choosing or leave England to risk a new life in America with unknown relatives. Armed with the faith that God has a plan for her, Kendra boards a cargo ship and meets American sea captain Dorian Colburn. But the captain has been wounded by a woman before and guards his independent life. A swashbuckling man doesn’t need an English heiress to make him slow down, feel again, or be challenged with questions about his faith-or so he thinks. It is not until Dorian must save Kendra from the dark forces surrounding her that he decides she may be worth the risk.


 
~ Cafe Lily's Review:
 
Lady Kendra Townsend is grieving the loss of her beloved father when her uncle (who also happens to be her father’s twin brother) decides its time for her to marry.  His suitor of choice turns Kendra’s stomach and she behaves so badly that she nearly scares off her "future" husband. 

Furious, Uncle Andrew offers an ultimatum:  marry frail, old Lord Barrymore or go to America.  Repulsed by the thoughts of being married to an old man, Kendra decides to take her chances and agrees to leave the only home she’s ever known. 

Author Jamie Carie takes readers on a romantic adventure complete with page-turning action, toe curling romance, lively wit and humor.  Kendra Townsend and Captain Dorian Colburn are like oil and water and keep readers entertained with their playful banter and verbal sparring.  Their attraction to each other is irresistible and Kendra is the one woman who makes Dorian rethink his bachelorhood, in spite of past hurts and betrayals by other women.   The journey is long and hard and makes Kendra question her decision at times; but overall her faith in God pulls her through the harrowing experience.

I have to be honest and say that while Pirate of My Heart is certainly entertaining, I personally enjoyed The Snowflake much more.   (You can read my review of that here.)
