Also reviewed on my blog, The Vintage Bookworm. ( This book blew my mind! At first I was worried I wouldn't be able to get into it because I kept getting distracted while reading the beginning of the book. I told myself that if I couldn't get into it after reading up to 50 pages, then I'd have to put it away for another time. I FINALLY got into it around 50 pages, and was so relieved. It got really interesting and I kept wanting to read more. But by the sixth chapter I couldn't put it down and wanted to keep reading it. I loved Anna, she was a good strong character and I loved how determined she was to find her father's treasure. She tried so hard during the book to hate James Sterling, but it was impossible. Nathanial was a sweet guy, but after a while he got really annoying and I kept screaming at the book trying to tell him to leave Anna and Sterling alone. Haha! The book was filled with twists that I never saw coming, which I absolutely loved! They took me by surprise so many times. The way they speak most of the time in the book was a bit hard to get used to, but after a while you do. I love historical romances, but it's hard to find really good ones nowadays. But this one really got up on my list of good ones. And it has pirates! You gotta love the pirates! Overall, this was a great book. Pick it up. The writing draws you in and holds you. Fun fact: Rachel Hawthore, the author of The Dark Guardian series, is the author of this book as well! Jade Parker is just a name she came up with and used for her author name with this book because it was much different than the books she was writing at the time. *Note: This is part of my 'Old Review' collection. Where I post reviews randomly that I wrote a while ago before starting this more

It's the year 1720, and Annalisa Townsend and her father are on their way to the Caribbean island of Mourning to set up a governorship when they are attacked by pirates. Hiding in the hold, Anna is discovered by the young James Sterling, who, surprisingly, says nothing of her whereabouts to the rest of the pirate crew. When he goes to take her necklace, however, which is all she has left of her mother, she begs him not to and he agrees, but only in exchange for a kiss. He then disappears with the rest of the pirates, and so does the treasure that the ship was carrying. One year later, Anna has found a ship and crew of her own, and sets out to find James Sterling, determined to get her father's treasure back. She finds James and takes him prisoner easily enough, but getting him to cooperate is another matter entirely. As she spends more and more time with him, she slowly begins to forget that he is a pirate and starts to fall for him. James seems to feel the same about her, but has he really given up his pirating ways, and can she ever really trust him? TO CATCH A PIRATE is a fun summer read full of swashbuckling adventure and romance on the high seas. Jade Parker, who also writes as Rachel Hawthorne and Lorraine Heath, has created a fantastic world with likeable characters that are sure to win over more
