OK, next time you see a cute cop, THIS is not the way to get his number. (I have to read it again, but did the dispatcher send the same guy out to arrest her the second time? Because, ouch.)
And in other news, I skimmed this book because the set-up was just to crazy to be believed.
Yep. It was unbelievable all right.
Take one tatooed pirate who wears a black mask and put him on the same ship with the young stowaway heiress whom he had been planning on kidnapping in order to force the release of his identical twin brother from the British Navy. That doesn't seem like a torturous set-up, does it?
Yeah, I know. A pirate with a tatoo across his entire back, but when he shaves his beard and enters polite London Society, the young heiress doesn't recognize him because he took off his mask. The mask he wears while SLEEPING on His Own Pirate Ship.
Oh good lord. To silly, really. But there were no parrots.
