To Catch a Pirate

To Catch a Pirate by Jade Parker 5 of 5 stars
To Catch A Pirate is one of my all time favorite books. Anyone who loves romance stories packed with actions will love this story! Annalisa Townsend is accompanying her father to the island of Mourning where he is to build a great port city for the king of England. Traveling with a chest of gold from the king, they do not make it to there destination before being attacked by the fearsome pirate Crimson Kelly and his colorful crew.
Annalisa is ordered to hide in the cargo hold before the pirates board their ship. Curiosity got the best of her and she left the safety of a barrel, just when James Sterling comes barrelling into the hold. When he tries to take her necklace she pleads with him not to for it is all she has to remember her mother (Who recently succumbed to the fever and died) by. He takes her ring and a kiss in exchange.

Now, a year later, Annalisa's father is in jail for cowardice and/or piracy. Annalisa has obtained a crew and a ship, not to mention a forged letter of marque, with the help of a young officer by the name of Nathaniel Northrup. She has wanted notices placed all over the Caribbean and the American coast for James Sterling. She is determined to find him and get the king's treasure back to clear her father's name.

When Annalisa caught James Sterling she thought she had her destiny in the palm of her hand. What she didn't expect was to fall in love a pirate. Something that was very dangerous to her plans.

For fans of: Pirates of the Caribbean

I love this book! The only thing that disappointed me was the ending (not so much what happened, but that there wasn't enough of one).

Anyway, great review.
