REVIEW: Pirate of my Heart by Jamie Carie

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Jamie Carie and her publisher for sending me an electronic copy of "Pirate of my Heart" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity.

“Pirate of my Heart” by Jamie Carie is an enjoyable romantic adventure. Lady Kendra Townsend is in quite a predicament. Her uncle has ruined her family financially with his gambling. Now Kendra finds herself answering to him because of her father’s untimely death. Choosing to travel to America to live with relatives she has never met rather than agree to a marriage she doesn’t want, Kendra finds herself aboard the Angelina with the handsome American Captain, Dorian Colburn.

Dorian is furious at the prospect of a passenger. But first mate, John, has seen to all of the arrangements so Captain Colburn moves into his best friend’s quarters. But Lady Kendra isn’t a typical woman. She is beautiful, intelligent and unselfish. As Dorian’s heart betrays him by letting the Lady enter, this confirmed bachelor fears admitting his feelings.

The sparks begin to fly when Kendra and Dorian meet. The intrigue continues as Lady Kendra becomes acquainted with her Aunt and Uncle in America and she is introduced to American society. Further plots surface as an unsavory friend of Kendra’s uncle pursues courtship. Perhaps Dorian will take a risk on love when Kendra’s life is at stake?

This is an enjoyable summer read with well-written romance, substantial characters and an intricately woven plot. I will recommend this emotionally provocative novel to my reading group friends.
