Over the course of their trip, Gracie comes to realize that there is more to Banning that meets the eye. Will the two fall in love?
And will Gracie ever get revenge against the Captain who kidnapped her sister?
Meanwhile, Gracie befriends the ships priest, Richard, who is determined to save her from sin. But Richard has a dark, evil side that puts Gracie in danger.
While the premise of the story was good, the execution was lacking. This book contained all the elements of a good pirate story, but none of the elements were expanpded upon enough to be enjoyable. Most conflicts were resolved way too quickly, and before you knew it our heroine was facing a brand new conflict, which would be resolved within only a few pages. The whole book felt a bit rushed, a bit incomplete. But it was still an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.
I will say though I was pleasantly surprised to see the opening chapter was set in Santo Domingo as my parents are from the Dominican Republic and I don't think I've read a story set there. But then again I rarely read pirate stories. And sadly this novella didn't get me into trying to read any more pirate tales for now.
We have the spirited heroine who is trying to rescue her sister. The sister had been taken by a monster of a pirate because he believes she knows the location of a huge gold nugget. The heroine approaches another pirate about trying to retrieve her sister, and she will pay him in gold and with her body for the duration of the trip.
The hero is the usual handsome and honorable pirate we have come to expect in these stories. The only difference is another member of the crew who wants to save the heroine from sin.
The romance aspect just didn't seem to run deep. There wasn't anything particularly memorable about this.
Graciela DuBois must convince Captain Cutler Banning to take her on a voyage to find Carrion, the pirate who stole her sister, Sarah.
I really loved her charming and lovable characters. Liked the intrigue! Another good story to enjoy!
Fast paced, well written with a dash of humour!
