Captivating and intriquing, "A Pirate's Ransom" delivers! Secretive Edmund Drake is sexy and sensative, an altogether irresistable combination. Impetuous and fiery, Lady Catherine is not your typical aristocrat, though she is forced to choose between duty and desire. Sparks fly when their destinies collide!
Written in first-person point of view, Brousseau takes the reader deep into the emotions and thoughts of Edmund and Catherine. What a unique twist from the traditional romantic read.

A Beautifully crafted love story. Despite her reluctance, a naïve young countess, Catherine, is sent off on a ship to London, where she is to wed a rich elderly Lord she has never met in order to fill her father’s coffers. Pirates attack the ship and carry her and her maidservant off with plans to hold her captive until ransom for her liberty is paid by her betrothed. Aboard, she falls in love with the handsome Captain Drake and gentlemanly, and he is smitten with her. Yet, the fact looms that he plans to hand her over to marriage upon arrival in London. During the voyage the pirate ship is attacked by Captain Drakes, nemesis, the fearsome Blackbeard. Catherine is once again dragged off--this time to Blackbeard’s castle in the Caribbean. There, she is trained to be a courtesan, so she can be sold on the open market to the highest bidder. Hearing of this Captain Drake devises a plan to rescue her. Lots of conflict keeps this story moving to a satisfying conclusion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A quick and easy read with characters you like from the beginning. Brousseau's prose flows seamlessly and is filled with depth. I felt no down time, but every page, every scene and every line of dialogue was needed and pushed the story forward. Looking forward to the next book!Was this review helpful?

Romance-type books are not my usual genre. But I am glad to have spent some time with Lady Catherine & Captain Drake! This story has everything ~ action, great plot lines, wonderful characters whom you grow to care about, and yes, the romance is hot! I am looking forward to Ms. Brousseau's next offering in November!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I read this book over a holiday weekend, it was the perfect story for a nice getaway. It read quickly, and was a fun, passionate love story about a woman kidnapped by a pirate who is not all what he appears. Nice historical touches, I was instantly transported into the world of love and intrigue that Brousseau has created here. The action begins very quickly in the story, and doesn't let up until the end. I found the characters to be likable and sympathetic. I'll be leaving a cup of cocoa out and dreaming of green eyes tonight!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Gerri Brousseau's Captain Edmund drake is part rogue, part warrior, part poet making him one sexy pirate. Lady Catherine is the kind of heroine I like, strong passionate, smart, with a penchant for doing the unexpected. A Fun, exciting read with more than a few unexpected twists. I enjoyed this story immensely from the first page to the happily ever after last one. I'm looking forward to reading what this author comes up with next!Was this review helpful?

If you're looking for a fun, fast paced adventure with a handsome sexy
pirate captain and a fiery heroine, this is the book for you. Told
mostly from the point of view of Lady Catherine, this story pulled me in
and didn't let me go until the very last page. I loved the spicey sex
scenes, the plafyul banter, and the all the engaging characters.
