Lady Kendra’s mother dies while giving birth to her, leaving Sir Edward alone to raise their daughter. Sir Edward is the perfect, doting father to his precious daughter, until his sudden death. Now she is left in the hands of her money-grubbing, mean uncle who is determined to get what fortune he can by marrying her off.

Lady Kendra is forced to make a decision – either marry the miserly, old man her uncle is trying to marry her off to or leave her only home, England, and go to America to live with another aunt and uncle, whom she has never met. Praying to God to make the right decision, Lady Kendra chooses the latter of the two and boards a cargo ship bound for America that is captained by the American rogue Dorian Colburn.

Captain Dorian Colburn has his own baggage to deal with. He has been deeply hurt by his previous marriage and has no intentions of letting go of his single, independent life again. That is until he meets the beautiful Lady Kendra and sparks start to fly.

Captain Dorian is determined to resist Lady Kendra, who is by nature, very independent and strong in faith. Lady Kendra will not let Captain Dorian get the best of her – she is quick with the comebacks and wit.

Not until Captain Dorian has to rescue Lady Kendra from the evils that are planned for her in America does he finally give in to his feelings and decides that she may be worth the risks.

I have not read a romance novel in ages, and I have to say I was completely enthralled with this book! Pirate of My Heart was a true page turner, with a lot of action, humor and romance. I loved the development of the relationship between the two main characters, Lady Kendra and Captain Dorian. Their great dialogue kept me wanting more!

I felt Pirate of My Heart was a great, fun read that I would highly recommend.

Rating: 5/5
