Stolen off an English ship at a very young age, Courtney was raised by a cruel pirate who had vowed to have revenge on the man and on England that banished him. Surviving was Courtneys first concerns but after her new adopted ‘father’ made it obvious that no man would touch her, she began to learn the trade in which she had landed in, the middle of the pirate ship, 'Hawk'. Courtney could navigate by sun or by stars, she could climb the rigging, and she knew how to fight with the men on the 'Hawk ...more

"Vi dico che quella donna è pericolosa." (...) "Voi state accusando la dama di compagnia della regina di essere una spia, milord. Queste sono affermazioni molto gravi."

Un romanzo avventuroso e scorrevole che mi ha però ricordato come trama Una spia a corte della McCabe anche se in quel caso la protagonista era un'ex cortigiana, mentre la protagonista di questo romanzo è più "innocente" e vulnerabile rispetto all'amore...

Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan is a reread for me. And what an emotional reread it was! It has been years since I read this book and I remember why I loved it so much! In fact, I went out of my way to buy a copy on Amazon because my own copy is back in my hometown gathering dust!

Mistress of the Seas was the perfect book to reads to get out of the current reading slump I was in. This book is about a female pirate and a Scottish prisoner of war who got sold into slavery on her father’s ship!
