In 1720, it’s a pirate’s life for Abigail Clear, daughter of a notorious colonial pirate captain…

But when a rival crew invades Abigail’s ship, she is taken prisoner. Now aboard the enemy vessel, she must contend with its formidable captain. But who is the real captive?

Locked away in the belly of The Indomitable is no place for a woman…

Captain James Morrow is more than displeased to discover his sole captive to be none other than an untamable young lass who will earn him no bounty. Yet if he can soften the little rogue, she just might switch her loyalties to him, and reveal the whereabouts of the infamous thief who sired her—and his stolen treasure. But two can play that game, as Abi is equally inclined to charm the dogged sailor off her father’s tail.

Might she and Captain Morrow run the risk of falling for their own charades?

They dance about their disguises as genuine developing emotions clash against deeper motives, and suspicion runs high. When the captain finally steals a first kiss, Abi decides it’s high time to make her escape—fleeing not only his vessel, but her fondness for the man who intends to see her father hang.

The high seas heat up as Captain Morrow’s quest to recapture Abi is halted by her pirate father, Captain Clear. Will James succeed in pursuit of his captive love, or will his desires conspire to make him a captive himself?

In Capturing the Captain, Abigail Clair is the daughter of a notorious pirate captain, and is content living a pirate’s life. But when a rival crew invades her ship and she’s taken prisoner, she must contend with the captain of this crew – James Morrow. James wants to use Abi to get to her father, Captain Clear. But as James and Abi get to know each other better, and genuine emotions come tumbling in, the question rises who of them is the real captive.

I really loved Abi. She’s fiesty, intelligent, and fun character. I loved how witty she was and how she found clever ways to get out of things. I also really liked James, and the chemistry between the two of them was undeniable.

It’s one of the first pirates romances I’ve ever read, but I have to say, I’m really enjoying this trope, and I’m looking forward to reading more pirate books in the future.
