“Even a man who’s spent his whole life at sea has reason to fear her when she’s angry.
But not I. I sleep soundly. Listening to her music. The sea watches over me.”
Tricia Levenseller’s Daughter of the Pirate King is perfect for those looking for a lighter fantasy with plenty of romantic tension. This one definitely has its flaws, but it was still a treat to read. You can read my review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From the Goodreads Synopsis:
“Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.“
