the sheltered niece of a Highland chief, Caitrina Grant longs for
adventure beyond the lush hills of Scotland. So when a pirate ship
glides into the loch, tempting her with promises of exotic lands and
hidden treasures, Trina sneaks aboard. But she is unprepared for the
consequences-and the seductive captain who demands the ultimate price
for her deception . . .
A SINFUL PIRATE
Alexander Kidd, the sea is no place for a lady. Pursued by deadly
enemies from every direction, Alex won’t rest until he claims the bounty
of riches left to him by his father, the notorious Captain Kidd. A
stowaway will not be tolerated-no matter how beautiful. But soon
fighting his desire for Trina becomes his toughest battle yet, and he
will have to make an agonizing choice: sacrifice his quest-or lose the
woman who has stolen his heart.

my attention from beginning to the end. Take a spirited, stubborn Highland lass
and then add in a sexy, swashbuckling pirate, and you get a VERY entertaining
adventure, but her father has other ideas. He’s finally decided that Caitrina
has denied too many suitors for her hand
in marriage, so he’s decided on a man for her to wed. This idea does not sit
well with her, she doesn’t want to
settle down, she wants to experience life and travel to exotic places. Then
Alexander Kidd, a pirate, shows up to get a treasure map that his father left
in the Grant’s care until he can come to
claim it. Caitrina is very intrigued by him, she’s never met a pirate, and a
sexy pirate at that! Caitrina decides to go on his ship just to take a look
while no ones the wiser, and her cousin and best friend, Kyle, follows her on
board . They end up hiding so the crew doesn’t find them and then they fall asleep
only to wake up after the ship has set sail, and is far out to sea. Of course,
once Alex finds out that Caitrina and Kyle stowed away on his ship, he thinks
they are after his treasure map. He plans to drop them off at the closet port
in France, but before he can do that something happens that makes it impossible
for the ship to stop there.
that made it an exciting read. I loved reading about the sea battles that took
place and all the places they stopped on the way. Paula Quinn did an excellent
job of describing the battles, places and people, I could easily envision all
these things as I was reading.
written, my favorite being Caitrina. She was a VERY STRONG HEROINE. I LOVED
reading how she practically turned into a pirate herself as the story moved
along. She never cowered and faced fear head on. She didn’t let anyone tell her
what to do, and never backed away from her decisions. She saved the day many of times during the
story, and the whole crew was in love with her before the end.
too. I loved reading about him struggling with his feelings for Caitrina. He
was an excellent hero; sexy, brave, confident, strong, caring, and honorable.
He was also a fantastic leader and took being the captain seriously.
Caitrina and Alex way before they acted on it. The sexual tension leapt off the
pages until they couldn’t deny themselves any longer. The loves scenes were
nicely done, and added the spiciness I always crave in my romances.
been done better…the ending…it was rushed. I wanted more details on finding
the treasure and what it consisted of. I also wished an epilogue would have
been added, it would concluded the overall story in a better way.
Quinn wove a spectacular story, and I think historical romance readers would
love this book. I urge them to grab this book and give it a try.
