Pirate of My Heart by Jamie Carie is one of my personal favorite books. I have already read it twice and will most likely read it again!
Kendra Townsend is an English lady. (Like, her name is Lady Kendra Townsend, not just that she's a girl-which she is) Her mother died birthing her and all she has is her dad. They are both very close. One day, out of the blue, Kendra's uncle, her dad's long lost brother appears and asks for help in paying off his bills. Kendra's father agrees, and then sees the amount and gets mad. Kendra's uncle kills her dad, and then tries to marry Kendra off so that he can collect her dowry. Kendra does not like that plan, so she tries to be as unattractive as possible. Her plan works, but her uncle Andrew sends her off to America to some relatives that she has never met. Along the way, she falls in love with the ship's captain. There is a lot of drama as her aunt and uncle in America don't want her, until they also come up with the plan to marry her off and get her dowry. (Kendra is unaware to all of this.) The sea captain's name is Dorian, and he is from a rich family that falls in love with Kendra immediantly. Kendra's uncle, however, sees that if she marries him he would not get her dowry, and things get dangerous. Kendra is captured and forced to marry a man that is supposed to spilt her dowry with her uncle in Amerca. Or at least, all that was attempted. You'll have to read it to see what actually happened. You can buy this book on amazon.com or even your kindle or nook. Please enjoy!
