Romancing the Pirate by Michelle Beattie

A desperate search leads to unexpected passion in this swashbuckling romance from Michelle Beattie.

Alicia Davidson had always been told that the loss of her memory and the scar she carried on her beautiful face were the result of a childhood fall. But when her beloved father died, she discovered the truth—she had been found unconscious on a beach after a pirate attack. Her despair is broken by one glimmer of hope: to find the sister she lost so long ago. And only one man could help her…
Blake Merritt left Port Royale and the Davidson household years ago, vowing never to return. So when he finds Alicia stowed away on his ship, he is none too pleased. Not because he isn't drawn to her—but because of his own bloody past. As Alicia's memories resurface, Blake is forced to face the demons that have haunted him. And together, they begin to heal…but will their different dreams tear them apart?

Alicia had amnesia and grew up unable to remember her childhood. Her father taught her all about being a blacksmith even though others considered it wrong for a woman to do that kind of work. When her father dies, she learns that she wasn't actually his child that her parents had died in a pirate attack that left her scarred physically and mentally. Desperate to find out about who she really is she discovers that she has a sister. She was told that Captain Blake Merritt would help her find her sister. However, Blake hates Alicia with a passion, when she pleads with him to allow her on his ship he refuses causing her to stowaway on his ship. This is a fast paced romance is great for anyone who loves pirate books.

This was ok, but not something I would recommend. It took to long to get to the point. I like a book I can't put down and this wasn't it.

In 1657 when her father died in Port Royal, Alicia Davidson learns the truth about who she really is; at least her roots. Apparently a victim of amnesia, she is not the biological daughter of the blacksmith who raised her. She also learns the scar on her face came when she was a little girl who survived a pirate attack at sea. Finally Alicia finds out she has a sister living in the Caribbean. Although she remembers none of this, Alicia has a deep need to meet her sibling Samantha (see WHAT A PIRATE DESIRES). She begs Captain Blake Merritt to take her on his ship heading to the Caribbean, but he refuses. He loathes any Davidson having left that household in disdain years ago vowing never to return. To his chagrin, what he thought was the end of the story is only the beginning as Alicia sneaks onto his ship. When he discovers the stowaway, Blake realizes he must get her on dry land soonest as he is attracted to the adopted daughter of a man he loathes. Still crossing the Atlantic proves his undoing as he falls in love with his unwanted guest and to her shock she reciprocates. However, his loathing of her family and a betrayal leave the captain and the stowaway with seemingly no future together on land or at sea. The story line is a fast-paced historical romance that brings to life the seventeenth century Caribbean Islands like Jamaica and St. Kitts. The lead couple is a wonderful pairing of two obstinate opposites who find love at sea. Fans will enjoy cruising the Caribbean with Michelle Beattie as the guide. ROMANCING THE PIRATE is an enjoyable and exciting tale. Harriet Klausner
