-- what was not to like about Pirate Heiress?
If it weren't for Stevie Savauge and the whole catching the kitchen and then the rest of the building on fire incident, her family would still have a home, and her family would not have gone on a quest to find a secret treasure hidden by her Great Great Grandparents -- which subsequently led to the capture of her eight-year-old siblings. Now the kidnapper is demanding that they deliver him a ship called the Seeker or the children will die.
Does Stevie's family have it in them to become pirates, save the children and find the treasure? Time will tell...
I was intrigued by the blurb, and by the time I had read the first chapter I knew this book was a keeper. With mesmerizing prose and a storyline that I simply adored, Pirate Heiress has all the makings for a great read.
I loved the characterization of Stevie. Stevie is thrown into a man's world -- a pirates world-- and she has to learn very quickly how to stay alive. What she did not expect to find was love with Captain Conal O'Brien, especially after she and her family took control of his ship! The romance between the two is a steady build which simmers and then explodes into one heck of a storm that neither Stevie or Conel will ever recover from! Totally believable and very romantic! Love, Love, Loved it!!
It seems a strange thing to say, but I really liked the antagonist of this novel. Drago Viteri Gamponetti has his own back story, which takes nothing away from the protagonists but kept me interested and turning those pages. I wanted to dislike him but found that I could not, for he is, despite the whole kidnapping incident, a nice man.
This storyline itself was well thought out and engaging. I have read a fair few "pirate romances," and I have to say that Pirate Heiress is up there with the best. FANTASTIC READ!!
I thoroughly enjoyed Pirates Heiress, and I look forward to reading more books from this author. Well done, Chloe Flowers!
I Highly Recommend.
