Overview

From USA Today bestselling author Sharon Cullen comes a tale of the fiery passion between a noble naval officer and a female pirate that’s as tempestuous and as unpredictable as the sea.
 
Nicholas Addison, celebrated captain of the Blackwell Shipping Fleet, has agreed to take Mrs. Emmaline Sutherland aboard the Pride and ferry the raven-haired beauty across the Atlantic on what he imagines will be a routine trip. But when the ship is attacked by pirates, the seemingly innocent passenger is revealed to be none other than the infamous marauder Lady Anne, whose name strikes fear in the hearts of sailors everywhere—and whose seductive wiles commandeers Nicholas’s affections.
 
Lady Anne, a legend of the high seas, has spent the last eleven years plotting revenge against her father, the owner of Blackwell Shipping. She’s targeted the Pride in hopes of plundering its captain’s company secrets. But beneath her fierce courage and bitter determination, Anne has the delicate heart of a woman—a heart that cannot help falling for Nicholas. Now Anne must make a difficult choice: bring down Blackwell or surrender to love.

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.

Do you love swashbuckling pirates who fight for great booties? Then this fabulous and humorous story with many twists by Sharon Cullen is the one for you. Her greatest twist is a FEMALE PIRATE that kicks other pirates' butts and take no names. Let's start with the hero, Nicholas Addison, the brother of the Earl of Claybrook. He is a captain in the Royal Navy with a healing leg injury and no ship. One night at a ball, he is offered a ship and also a mission to sail to Boston. Marquess Kenmar wants him to find out who is attacking Daniel Blackwell's ships. Rumors of "The Notorious Lady Anne" attacking Blackwell's ships have been floating around London. Kenmar doesn't believe a female pirate is doing it, but thinks Blackwell is. He wants Nicholas to watch Blackwell and see if attacks his next shipment of gold. Nicholas is just leaving when a beautiful dark hair gypsy introduces herself and ask him to dance with her. That beauty is actually "The Notorious Lady Anne!" Now that's get to the butt kicking heroine. Emmaline Sutherland is a widow from Barbados and only wants one thing in the world, to bankrupt and destroy Daniel Blackwell. She is staying with her Aunt Dorothy to spying on Kenmar's plans for Blackwell's gold. Since her aunt's ball is so boring, she is happy to use the time to get information out of the Captain. What she gets is the captain's low opinion on women. He tells her how Lady Anne doesn't exist because a woman CAN'T work that HARD and that life is to DANGEROUS for a woman. All Emmaline wants to do is reach for her knife strapped to her thigh and stab him to death. WAR WAS DECLARED! The first shot was hers! Nicholas is shocked when she walks unto his ship, WITHOUT a chaperone, and she says, "Sorry, am I'm late?" His first shot back was "showing" her his ship using insults like "the poles in the middle are called masts!" During their voyage, they are attacked by pirates (not hers)and captured. He then learns she is "The Notorious Lady Anne" and taken prisoner on her ship. This story is about two opposites who clash over everything. Their war of wills ignites sparks and fire that turns into passion that overwhelms their world. Will his black and white justice doom them both? Will she be able to show him sometimes justice has colors? I personally don't enjoy stories with pirates and long sea voyages that take place in 1700s. Ms. Cullen has show me the errors of my ways. She writes like she has been a pirate and enjoyed it. Her characters jumped off the page and landed in my heart. I love Shamus, the gentle giant, Cook aka her lady's maid and Clarence, her ex-pirate butler with a serious attitude! Ms. Cullen writes about the truly deep friendship between Emmaline and Phin, her best friend and second-in-command. Of course she throws in steamy, up against the wall scenes, blood and guts pirates fights, not one but two evil villains but most of all she writes a moving love story. Ms. Cullen made me blush, laugh, smile, cry and even pull out my dusty pistol and cutlass and kick ass with her pirates. She deserves my top score of 5 fingers up and 10 toes and I will throw in my thanks for the hours of being transported to her world of girl power! Reviewed from a NetGalley ARC.

Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Kimberly & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog “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. *Review copy provided by publisher

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! This ARC copy of The Notorious Lady Anne was given to me by Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group - Bantam Dell in exchange for an honest review. Publish Date February 11, 2013.

Lady Pirate. . . Historical Romance filled with secrets and lots of seduction Historical Romance with secrets and seduction. . .  I am on board 100%. I love Historical Romance and then we have a Nicholas Addison, a shipping captain. What it even better a woman, Mrs. Emmaline Sutherland/Lady Anne plays the pirate game just a well if not better than her counterparts. With all she is and the more she becomes, she captures Captain Nicholas in more than one way. As many women of the day she has to make a choice her objective or love. That is so unfair in historic times. But there are times when a woman can have it all. Cullen has given me a Historical Romance where the heroine becomes more than just a pretty face or helpless maiden. This notorious Lady Anne has much more to her than one can see on the outside.

I've always been a big lover of historical romance novels. I love everything about them. I just adore reading stories about the 1800's. Anyhow ... I was super excited to get my hands on this one, hoping that I had found a new favorite author. Unfortunately, that just wasn't the case. I don't know if it was the pirate thing or what, but I just didn't get this one. And that's really sad since it's received a pretty high rating on other sites. It just wasn't for me. Now don't get me wrong ... I just didn't like the story line ... that isn't to say that the book wasn't written well because it was. It was a well written book, I liked the main hero of the story at first and then he just lost it for me. I just grew ... tired of him. I can't really put my finger on it. I was just really disinterested in what was going on. I think this novel was well thought out and well planned, just not for me. From what everyone is saying about this book, if you like historical romance novels, the chances that you will enjoy this one is pretty high. I will probably try another title from this author just to see if maybe it was the pirate thing for me because that is the one word that keeps popping into my head. I blame it on Jack Sparrow. No other pirate will do it for me.
