    Imagine the shock for Captain Gina Santini when she discovers that her recent plunder of treasure has been stolen by none other than the man who stole her heart years ago before vanishing. Now Captain Charles is back and he wants her to help him score the prize of a lifetime and win her heart in the process.

    Armed with a cursed doll for protection, Gina must decide which way to steer both her ship and her heart.

    Charles must work hard to win Gina’s alliance as he seeks revenge for the past and redemption in her heart. The stakes are high as Charles navigates uncharted waters on both fronts.

    Pirate’s Proposal is a great swashbuckler that will have you turning the pages late into the night. Ms. Layne has a great skill writing dialogue and it shows in the fun banter between all her characters. Her since of ships and swordplay rings true as she takes the reader from bawdy pier side pubs to rigging sails and preparing for a sea war. My only disappointment came when I ran out of story to read. I hope she considers a sequel for Charles and Gina.

    A recommended read for anyone who loves a great pirate adventure. Pirate’s Proposal is one story in a larger group called Tales of the Scrimshaw Doll Series which follows the doll through history as it changes owners.

    Favorite Quote: “Captain! Are you insulting the size…of my ship?”

    The obvious sexual overtone felt like a physical caress. It somehow felt familiar. Provocative. She gave herself a mental shake. “It’s not the size of your…ship that’s in question. You stole what was mine.”

    Proposal enthusiastically accepted!

    I absolutely loved Pirate's Proposal by Diana Layne! This book is fast paced and exciting. The story is beautifully written; Ms. Layne has a special way with words. The characters are so realistic, I felt like a stowaway, riding out the storm on Gina's ship, The Gypsy Doll, right along with her. The romance between Captain Gina and Captain Charles is strong, intense and believable. I would recommend this book to anyone--pirate enthusiasts and pirate novices (like me) alike. If you've yet to encounter romance on the high seas, set sail with Pirate's Proposal and experience what you've been missing.
