Take one physically damaged sea captain, Nicholas Addison and add one emotionally damaged pirate, Emmeline Sutherland (Lady Anne) and you get a spicy, tempestuous dish of a story. Lady Anne has sworn to avenge herself against the father who abandoned her by hitting him where it hurts,in his pocket book. She is determined to take out the ships in his company and Captain Nicholas Addison has been hired to capture the allusive pirate but the tables are turned and he becomes the captive. Delightful tale. This one is a keeper.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this high seas adventure with a kick and I am looking forward to more from Sharon Cullen.” ~Under the Covers
Nicholas Addison has an extreme distaste for pirates. His mission is to find out for his current employers who is plundering the Blackwell Shipping Fleet and bring them down. The handsome but injured former British Navy man sets out from London by sea to Boston to discover who has been pirating the ships, rumor has it that a female pirate, known as Lady Anne is the culprit, but Captain Addison does not believe in pirates, little alone a female one.
While still in London, Nicholas becomes acquainted briefly with Mrs. Emmaline Sutherland at a ball. He finds her to be very different than most of the females he has ever known. Emmaline in bold and outspoken and quite confuses the man, but that’s all right, Nicholas won’t see her again, right? Wrong, the very next day, Mrs. Sutherland winds up as the Captain’s sole passenger for the trip, and this is where the adventure begins.
Emmaline Sutherland is no simpering female, and she is much more than Captain Addison could ever have imagined. Emmaline Sutherland is in fact the Notorious Lady Anne who knows a thing or two about sailing and being a pirate. To Nicholas’ dismay, Emmaline is on a collision course to destroy anything and everything belonging to Blackwell Shipping and she will go through anyone or anything to achieve that end. Romantic feeling aside, Nicholas has his mission and Emmaline has hers. When their paths cross, can either of these stubborn beings be deflected in their tasks? That, dear readers is part of the excitement in this book!
The Notorious Lady Anne by Sharon Cullen is a great read. Both Captain Addison and Mrs. Sutherland are strong personalities that shout for attention. There is action and adventure abounds in this tale as well as emotion on high. When Nicholas decides he’s going to have Emmaline there is no changing his mind, and the strong and intelligent but very naive young pirate lady has little clue as to what is going on. I thoroughly enjoyed this high seas adventure with a kick and I am looking forward to more from Sharon Cullen.

Mrs. Emmaline Sutherland has been hiding a secret for more than 11 years. She is also known as the notorious pirate Lady Anne. You might ask how a woman of social standing would turn to piracy, well its all about revenge . . . revenge against her father Lord Blackwell and his shipping companies.
Nicholas Addison, an injured ships captain, has just been offered a new commission. He will be Captain of the PRIDE. Emmaline Sutherland books passage to Boston on the PRIDE, but her plans aren’t for transport but to find Blackwell’s manifests. During this voyage, the PRIDE is attacked by pirates (not Anne’s crew) and her identity is revealed.
Emmaline must decide between the revenge that has eaten at her for 11 years or the new found love in Nicholas. Nicholas must decide between the love of his country and laws or the woman he can not seem to get enough of.
I would describe The Notorious Lady Anne as the perfect historical pirate romance! Great adventure, erupting romantic tension, fascinating characters and a wonderful story of wounded people finding love. 5 Stars!
