A Pirate of Her Own by Kinley MacGregor


DNF p.50

I realized something about myself today. I like pirate romances, but I don't like goofy pirate romances. Catherine Hart really tested my patience with SPLENDOR and this one was even worse, because at least SPLENDOR had a curse hanging over the hero's head like the sword of Damocles to sort of draw out the tension and provide some stakes.

Cliff's notes edition of what I did read:

-Hero is a blockade runner who liberates Americans from the Evil British
-Heroine wears glasses but we're told how much prettier she is without them
-Hero drives his ship alllll the way to the U.S. just because he read the Georgian equivalent of a BuzzFeed article talking about, idk, 11 Reasons the Sea Wolf Is the Most Misunderstood Pirate, Actually
-Heroine basically thinks the hero is a pirate strippergram (but make it PG) that her brother sent over to fuck with her

This is too much. I yield. I yield.

2 out of 5 stars
