Lady Kendra Townsend is devastated when her father dies in an accident. Her wicked uncle Andrew is now in charge of the estate and requires that she marry the scoundrel he has chosen for her or sail to America and live with family she's never met. Knowing that God will take care of her and not wanting to marry the man her uncle chosen, America seems like her only choice. That is where she meets Captain Dorian Colburn. He's very handsome in a pirate kind of way. Captain Colburn has been burned by beautiful women before so the last thing he wants is to have to look after an English heiress. But as they journey together they find their attraction to each other growing. All is not well though for Kendra. Danger lurks ahead. Will Dorian decide this beautiful heiress is not only worth saving but risking his heart as well?
What a great adventure! This author does a wonderful job of drawing you into the story and keeping you involved until its heart-racing conclusion. I must say I am a real fan of pirate stories and when I saw the beautiful cover and the title, I knew it was a 'must read'. While this is not your typical pirate story it did have pirates in it and contained plenty of action, suspense and romance. I enjoyed the whole cast of characters. Dorian is a strong hero who is very protective of Kendra. Kendra is strong in determination. I loved watching these two interact. I also really liked Dorian's friend John. What a fun personality he had. The underlying theme of this tale was trusting and relying on the Lord. I think the author painted some great pictures of what unforgiveness and greed looks like as well as what trust and obedience looks like and the outcome of them both. If you enjoy a great historical adventure then I would definitely recommend Pirate of My Heart. A thank you goes to B&H Publishing for this complementary copy for my review.

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
