"I always knew my father was a pirate and I always knew I wanted to be one, too." Catherine's father supposedly works for the Royal Navy, but she knows better. She'd love to go to sea with him, but the 15-year-old must stay home and look after her mother, who is sickly. Sadly, her mother dies. Catherine and her father are devastated. He wants to send her to live with her aunt in Boston. However, Catherine convinces her father to take her along on his ship, Reprisal, masquerading as his son, Charlie. Pirate life is, to say the least, grisly. Bloody and brutal. No quarter given. Not nearly the romantic adventure she'd envisioned. With one exception. William, the cabin boy. Blond, blue eyes, much more sensitive than most of the pirates. (And he still has all his arms and legs, too.) Who knew that true love might be hiding amidst the dirt and danger? Except...he thinks she's a boy. And women are considered bad luck on ships. Read The Pirate Captain's Daughter to experience tragedy and triumph.
