Overview

A Pirate's Possession by Michelle Beattie

Pleasure won is more precious than treasure found in this scintillating pirate romance from Michelle Beattie.

Abandoned by her father and married to a deceitful man, Claire Gentry fled from her life. Now, disguised as a man, Claire wagers all she owns in a poker game to locate the treasure her father sought. But while her disguise holds, it doesn't protect her when one of her opponents turns out to be the man she once gave her heart to.
 
Sailing under the alias of the mysterious pirate Sam Steele, Nate Carter is looking to gamble for a map that will lead him to a treasure. But when he looks over his cards and sees Claire, he's reminded of a past he'd rather forget—and of the woman who could have given him everything he truly wanted.
 
When Nate wins the map, Claire has no choice but to accompany her old love on his quest. And if they survive the bloody battle for the treasure, they may just realize that what they've really been searching for isn’t riches—but each other...

In 1660 Claire Gentry is desperate to escape a marriage with an abusive monster. Thus she masquerades as a man to enter a poker game in Nevis in the Caribbean that includes a treasure map that leads to her father's loot. Also at the table is Nate Carter AKA Sam Steele the notorious pirate. Over eight years ago Nate broke Claire's heart while he believes she betrayed their love. She does not have to see him to know he is here because she will go to her grave recognizing his voice. To her chagrin though she plays well and proves she belonged in the game, Nate wins. Determined Claire follows him hoping to steal the map from him. He knows she follows him so he plots revenge for her duplicity years ago. Instead, the pair places their personal gender war on hold as they are on the run from adversaries who want the map at any cost. To survive the horde in deadly pursuit, they need to trust and depend on one another, but each expects the other to stab them in the back at the first opportunity. Michelle Beattie's third Caribbean seventeenth century pirate romance is an exhilarating action packed high-seas romantic adventure. Similar in tone and characterization to What the Pirate Desires and Romancing the Pirate, nevertheless the fast-paced tale grips the reader from the opening card game when Nate and Claire, vowed enemies for life, know the other is in the room. Fans will enjoy the high sea and on land escapades of the lead pair who to survive need each other as love and hate has no degrees of separation with this dueling duo. Harriet Klausner

Love pirates and high seas adventures. The ending tho, was too abrupt after they both got over hard-headedness!

This is the first book I've read by Michelle Beattie. I was intrigued by the premise and I found it exciting and romantic! The lure of the treasure, plus characters I came to really care about, made this a fascinating book. I definitely will be reading more of Beattie's books!
