Product Description

When her doting father dies, Lady Kendra Townsend is given a choice: marry the horrid man of her cold, money-grubbing uncle's choosing or leave England to risk a new life in America with unknown relatives. Armed with the faith that God has a plan for her, Kendra boards a cargo ship and meets American sea captain Dorian Colburn. But the captain has been wounded by a woman before and guards his independent life. A swashbuckling man doesn't need an English heiress to make him slow down, feel again, or be challenged with questions about his faith-or so he thinks. It is not until Dorian must save Kendra from the dark forces surrounding her that he decides she may be worth the risk.

Jamie Carie's Pirate of My Heart deals with love in the face of adversity. In 18th-century England, young Lady Kendra Townsend loses her father. She must either marry someone she does not love or take a chance on a new life in America. Kendra has to rely on her faith in God as she faces the pain of losing her home and easy life to those who would also take her fortune.

On her voyage to America, Kendra meets Dorian Colburne, a sea captain not used to being shackled by a woman. The story focuses on their relationship and the forces around them that try to keep them apart. Ultimately, their love triumphs when Dorian saves her from kidnapping and death – and she saves him from his fear of love.

Kendra is likeable and relatable for her charming personality and deep faith. Her relationship with Dorian is well-developed throughout the novel, though at times the romance is heavy-handed. While they gain friendship and reliance on each other, the physical side of their relationship is also related in superficial detail. Carie's descriptions are occasionally wandering and cliched, and a few key moments are overlooked. When Dorian's spiritual journey should reach its climax, Carie instead brings back the "saving Kendra" plotline. Still, Kendra's hope and determination hold the reader's attention through to the dramatic end. Her spirit epitomizes Galatians 6:9, "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."

Pirate of My Heart will please readers of historical romance, but other readers may find that Carie's various story elements need a little work. The prose could be tighter, some of the action better thought out, and the spiritual climax brighter. Still, for those who like a little adventure in their romance, Jamie Carie does have a story worth reading. Kacey Heinlein, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
