1775, Boston Harbor. James Sparhawk, Master and Commander in the British Navy, knows trouble when he sees it. The ship he’s boarded is carrying ammunition and gold…into a country on the knife’s edge of war. Sparhawk’s duty is clear: confiscate the cargo, impound the vessel and seize the crew. But when one of the ship’s boys turns out to be a lovely girl, with a loaded pistol and dead-shot aim, Sparhawk finds himself held hostage aboard a Rebel privateer.

Sarah Ward never set out to break the law. Before Boston became a powder keg, she was poised to escape the stigma of being a notorious pirate’s daughter by wedding Micah Wild, one of Salem’s most successful merchants. Then a Patriot mob destroyed her fortune and Wild played her false by marrying her best friend and smuggling a chest of Rebel gold aboard her family’s ship.

Now branded a pirate herself, Sarah will do what she must to secure her family’s safety and her own future. Even if that means taking part in the cat and mouse game unfolding in Boston Harbor, the desperate naval fight between British and Rebel forces for the materiel of war—and pitting herself against James Sparhawk, the one man she cannot resist.

I have so many favorite authors. I love the classics. Jane Austen is one I come back to again and again. And I have started reading Georgette Heyer.

It wouldn't be fair to the Authors on this site to name just one, so I'm going to deviate. I'll have to say Leila Meacham, who I got acquainted with within the past couple of years. I'm also a big Janet Evanovich fan, and read her books as soon as they hit the shelves!! As for the Authors of Fresh Fiction, they know who they are!!
Peggy Roberson 10:41am March 4, 2014)

My favorite author is Jacqueline Winspear.
Sharon Berger 10:55am March 4, 2014)

When I first started reading romance books, I liked the author Bertrice Small
She wrote several books with pirates in them. Love reading the jack Sparrow-
type books.
Joy Isley 11:48am March 4, 2014)

Jane Austen
Richard Burr 1:28pm March 4, 2014)

It's hard to chose just one author. It seems to me that each author has something special that others do not have. But, If I were to chose one right ow I'll say Debbie Macomber.
Vennie Martinisi 3:55pm March 4, 2014)

Mary Kay Andrews
Lisa Garrett 4:09pm March 4, 2014)

I also enjoy Lauren Willig.
Doris Losey 5:13pm March 4, 2014)

I have many I love and enjoy: Sarah Jio, Jodi Thomas, Toni Blake, Carolyn Brown, Karen Kelly, Juliana Stone, Susan Mallery, Cindy Holby, Lori Wilde, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Carla Neggers, Jason Starr, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts, and V.C. Andrews. I usually read each one of their books as they are released. In the meantime, I always try new authors and read their books too.
