Ali writes in with a romance she’s lost and hopes to find again:
I have had a book in my possession that has moved
with me several times, and been there for me in my darkest moments. Now,
said book is nowhere to be found. For the love of Merlin’s beard, I can’t
find it, I can’t remember the title or author, and the names of the
heroine/hero escape me.
You may be asking yourself, “How in the holy hell can I help this bitch
out?”. Well, I’ll give you as much as I can about this book, and hope that
the Goddess of Romance is gazing in your direction.
A girl, raised on a pirate ship, takes over as said pirate when her father
(the head honcho pirate) is killed. We first meet her as she smuggles
herself aboard an English vessel, where she meets the hero, who has to take
over the Captaincy of said vessel during a raging storm when the “Captain”
is too drunk to do so. The next day, her father finds the correct ship, she
dives off the rigging and the pirates sail away. Flash forward, and the
father is killed, presumably by the Hero (not so). In her thirst for
revenge, she singles out all the ships of his line. Eventually she’s found
(her 1st mate, Dancer, searches frantically for her). Her nefarious uncle
locks her in his basement, beating her, until the Hero strikes a deal to
take her as his wife.
They marry, he lovingly cleans her wounds, and they
retire to the country. She becomes pregnant, helps local smugglers; he
leaves to find a traitor to the crown (his ex, wouldn’t you know?). Dancer
eventually finds her, she says she’s in love. Worried over the hubby’s
continued absence, she takes to a cottage somewhere on his land. He comes
home just in time to help deliver his two sons, twins. The traitor is
eventually caught (such a bitch, and not in a good way). Happily ever after.
So…..that’s it. One of my favorite books, and I can’t find it! I think
it might be a Zebra Heartfire, with a 3 word title, but I’m just not sure.
I swear, you have a hysterectomy and everything is shot to shit. :-/
Anyone remember this book? Usually the more crazeesauce the piratical historical, the more likely it is someone will remember it within seconds! Can you Help a Bitch Out?
