Gabrielle Brooks knows that finding the perfect husband isn't going to be easy. Despite the fact that her father had called in a favor from the influential James Malory, who, along with his wife, Georgina, is sponsoring Gabrielle's debut, it is already midway through the season, and most of the eligible men have been tagged by other marriage-minded misses. And if word got out that Gabrielle was the daughter of a pirate, she might as well pack her bags and return home a confirmed spinster. In spite of all these drawbacks, Gabrielle does find one man with potential: American sea captain Drew Anderson. But Drew is quite clear about his feelings about marriage and pirates. When Gabrielle unexpectedly needs to return to the Caribbean, she decides to prove exactly how much of a pirate she really is by stealing Drew's ship and taking him captive. Lindsey adds a generous soupcon of swashbuckling action and adventure to the latest captivating addition to her wickedly witty, lusciously sensual Malory series. John Charles

I really liked to interaction between Drew and Gabrielle. Gabrielle is strong and determined. She takes her life in her own hands. The two strike sparks of of one another. I did believe that this book is slightly weaker than the previous books in the series. I think that there is some assumption today that the reader has some familiarity with the history of these books.
I really liked how Gabrielle gets her revenge upon Drew. It is funny and passionate. I did feel that the resolution was a bit rushed and not as emotionally satisfying as the other books in the series. I did like the plot and think it is a good addition to the series.
I'd rate this one as a 4.25.
