Very good book with a different kind of heroine. Kate is an American widow, whose husband and friends became privateers as a way to support their families after British blockades destroyed their livelihoods. Kate's husband was killed when his ship was captured by the British, so Kate took over as captain of the ship. She and her crew have wreaked their vengeance on British merchant ships, while hiding her identity from them.

Kit North is a man driven to make reparations for his past. As a young m

I grabbed this off the Recently Read shelf at the library (bless the dirty old ladies of the Erindale branch). All it took was for me to see lady pirate captain in the description and I was on board (pun intended).
Unfortunately, it didn't quite live up to all its promise. Our heroine and hero are a pirate captain and a pirate hunter, which could have had some delicious conflict. But Kate gets captured right away. I would have loved a prologue where she plunders a ship and kicks some ass. I need

This book started out really well. It had interesting characters, the dark troubled Captain North with a desreputable past and Kate Medhurst with her own dangerous secret. It also had good secondary characters in the form of Gunner and young Tom. The first 75 percent in of this novel, for me, was five star reading. However it fell down in the end when they reached London. The dilemmas and sentiments were long drawn out and I found myself skipping pages. I am afraid it laboured a little toward th ...more

My gosh, to live in this time..I couldn't do it. Guess that is because vows and morals don't mean as much now. LOL. Now I'm not saying people now a days do not have morals or keep their vows but this one went a tad overboard. Like he's been dead for three years girl, you have needs and are doing absolutely nothing wrong.

Took a tad too long though for these two to finally figure it out.

A tad confused as to why his friends were so mad considering it was Kit that did what he did and suffered for it

I read this expecting it to be full of sex and poorly written (as it is mills and boon) what i found was a well written novel with a great story line. It actually makes you want to read the end before you finish just to see what happens. As for the sex part it is tame well written and well placed in the story. It is not graphic and leaves most to the imagination.

Margaret McPhee does the short Harlequin story proud! In such a short amount of pages, she captures all the tension and high stakes perfectly, that one cannot be but moved by the power of her words running across the page. This is the second book of hers that I have read and am not sorry that I took the chance on it.

This book takes place in my second favorite historical time period, the Napoleonic Wars, 1812. (the first being the Golden Age of Piracy) The protagonists/antagonists are Captain Kit

Excellent light read with an interesting story that was just long enough to get the tale across without feeling like it was drawn out. Not really what I expected for one of those monthly Harlequin's- Which is good because I never expect much from them in general LOL. Overall I really enjoyed it and it blasted away a lonely Saturday evening.
