When they first met, Jean-Luc Valmont was a privateer and Maribel Cordoba a mere youth being whisked away to the Caribbean.  Years later, Jean-Luc, now a successful attorney in New Orleans, comes face to face with the grown up Maribel, who is swiftly capturing his heart.  But if she remembers their first encounter, his hidden past could come to light, and all he’s worked for could be lost.

Publisher's Description

Can a former privateer and a determined heiress find lost treasure in 1725?
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

Pasts Collide in New Orleans when a Treasure Goes Missing
The last time New Orleans attorney Jean-Luc Valmont saw Maribel Cordoba, a Spanish nobleman’s daughter, she was an eleven-year-old orphan perched in the riggings of his privateering vessel proving herself as the best lookout on his crew. Until the day his infamy caught up with them all and innocent lives were lost. Unsure why he survived but vowing to make something of the chance he was given, Jean-Luc has buried his past life so deep that no living person will ever find it—until a very much alive and very grown up Maribel Cordoba arrives on his doorstep and threatens all he now holds dear.

    The Pirate Bride is book two in The Daughters of the Mayflower series. Maribel Cordoba is just eleven years old when her father takes her away on his ship to Cuba. On their way their ship is taken over by privateers and her father is lost at sea. The crew of the privateering ship take over the care of Maribel as she wins each of their hearts. When this ship is taken over, a couple of the crew who survive take Maribel to an orphanage to be raised. The ships owner, Jean-Luc Valmont, is severely injured and taken home to New Orleans to recover. When he recovers he changes his methods of shipping and years later Jean-Luc and Maribel meet again.

    This is a good story full of adventure, mystery and a touch of romance. The characters in this story are strong, caring people you would not expect to find in a pirate story. I really enjoyed the energy and spunk Maribel has for life. She believes her mother is dead and hold on to the memories of her mother and lessons her mother taught her as well as holding on to her mothers scarf for 12 years. While this is part of a series, this is a stand alone book as well. The connection to book one is three generations apart and there is minimal reference to a character in book one.

    The Pirate Bride, by Kathleen YBarbo, is the second book of the Daughters of the Mayflower series.

    I wish I could give this book two separate ratings one for part one of the story and another for part two. The beginning pulled me in and I found young Maribels story compelling. The second part seemed a tad rushed and wrapped up a little quickly. Thats not to say there werent exciting and page-turning aspects in much of the story.

    I really enjoyed the historical aspects of the first book of the series (The Mayflower Bride) but the pirate aspect of this one didnt draw me in as deeply. I had a more difficult time sympathizing with the characters. I suppose much of that is the age of Maribel through most of the story. Her youth isnt really the issue, but the age difference between her and Captain Beaumont is. I know its fiction, but I couldnt get past that gnawing matter.

    This is a relatively quick read for those who are interested in historical pirate stories (such as Pirates of the Caribbean.)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Barbour Publishing and NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a review.

    This is the second book in The Daughters of the Mayflower Series from Barbour Publishing. You will recall I shared the first book, The Mayflower Bride, in a review back in February. I must say the covers for this series are beautiful!

    WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

    A 12 year old girl named Maribel suffered the loss of her mother and grandfather and her estranged father came to take her away from the only home she had known. They boarded a ship only two days after Maribel got the news of her loss. The ship, the Venganza, was a ship of intrigue some also called it the Ghost Ship. Once they set sail it was not long before the ship was attacked. Maribels father was cast overboard and drowned. Maribel was knocked unconscious in the attack. When she woke she found out she had been taken and cared for by the shipmates and the captain, Jean Beaumont. The plan was to care for her until they found a suitable place to leave her.

    Maribel was a spirited bookish girl who quickly took to the seafaring life. She had spent time reading books on the swashbuckling adventures of famous pirates as she great up and saw it all as a great adventure. The captain of the ship seemed very young to be in charge but he commanded great respect from the men in his employ. Captain Beaumont was a man with a mission and a treasure trove of secrets. He had surrounded himself with a great band of men who would give their very lives for him.

    Just as Maribel was settling into her new life aboard ship and endearing herself to everyone around her the ship was attacked by the French. As she sat perched in the look out reading a book and enjoying an impending storm she was suddenly cast into the sea alone and adrift by a cannonball that hit the rigging. As she was fading in and out of consciousness two of the crew members from the Ghost Ship found her some time later. Their only safe option was to take her to an island with an orphanage run by nuns that was nearby. They knew they could leave her there in good hands. She spent the next 11 years there as an orphan and then as a teacher to the children that came after her.

    Those years Maribel spent on the island played tricks on her memory. She relived the life on that ship in her mind as if it were a dream tidbits came back to her over time and she wondered if it was all just her imagination. what happened to her captain and his crew her friends those who helped her through the loss of her entire family? Would she ever know if it was real? If it was would she ever see those men again? She had so many questions and needed answers.

    WHAT I ENJOYED

    Maribel was a charming character! She was an avid reader with an adventurous spirit. She was unlike other young ladies of her time and was not sold on the ideas society had about how young ladies should behave. The Captain and his crew were unusually kind for a bunch of privateers and had a real soft spot for the young girl. The story took place between an island in the Caribbean and New Orleans, Louisiana during the time of its French occupation. The connection to the Mayflower was found in Maribels mother, Mary Lytton. We see that information given on the first page of chapter 1. The author shares a chart at the beginning of the book to show us her family line. The book is also a Christian fiction with an element of faith throughout. There was adventure and chivalry as well as a bit of intrigue and twisty plot points toward the end. It is a gentle read and would be a good YA book as well as adult.

    WHAT I DID NOT LOVE

    The pacing of this book was a letdown. we spend half the book trying to build the story and another fourth of it setting the scene 11 years after Maribel is left at the orphanage. The adventure and intrigue part of this book did not even begin until about 5 chapters from the end. There was a whole lot of building up to something and then a non-climactic bit of summary to wrap up where they were going. While it is a sweet story with it has a great deal of predictable plot but there were some surprises and that kept me going. I had to see what happened to Maribel after all she had been through.

    I give this one a 3 out of 5 stars.

    This book had me so excited! There were spunky heroines, dastardly relatives, and pirates... Oops, I mean "privateers." (That will make more sense after you read the book!) There was cannon fire and battles at sea, colorful supporting characters, a good plot...and then all of a sudden, there wasn't. Just as everything was starting to come together and I thought that the final scene of action was coming, the story just petered out. It wrapped up way too quickly and didn't match the exciting pace of the rest of the book. The romance came up way too quickly, especially considering the age difference between the main characters. Additionally, the antagonist was dealt with in just a few paragraphs. I was hoping for an epic pirate battle, but I was let down. The Pirate Bride could've used 15-20% more story, and then it would've been a 5-star book! As it currently stands, I'm rounding up from 3.5 to 4 stars because my attention was riveted throughout the whole book.
