Corsets & Crossbones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As everyone knows by now, I am a YA Paranormal fan, but from time-to-time, you can catch me reading outside my comfort zone....
I must start off by saying that I have never read anything by this author before. The cover of the book and the synopsis alone captured my attention and made very curious about the book. WOW, this book was amazing, I absolutely couldn't put it down!!! I love the way this author brought this book to life. It's nothing I have read before, and it was a refreshing and fun read. The Characters are awesome and they are lovable and funny, plus the story line is very addicting. Awe the thrill of pirates, ball gowns, the wide open sea and comedy..... It's an adventurer's dream come true!!
Captain Charlie Colt. I loved how this story started off with Charlie. I find him charming and quite witty, plus he can be crude and new how talk anybody into or out of anything. I love how he is made out to be a pirate, and a swindler, but is respected by many and hated by others. I also love his fascination with Brooke Cunningham from the beginning at age 10 and how his love for her flourishes through the book.
Brooke Cunningham. Awe, Brooke is a magnificent character. I love her wit and charisma and how much of a dare devil she could be, because in this time period, normal girls did not do half the things Brooke does. Girls are suppose to be regal and get married to the right suitor of the father's choosing, but not Brooke. She wants adventure, excitement, and be desperately sailing out to sea. I love how she played hard to get a first with Charlie and how her love grew for him throughout the story.
This is a spectacular, and might I add, tastefully well written, Historical Fiction mixed with pirates and romance. I am a sucker for this time period, because I fall every time for the corsets and dresses. I also must add that the title was a perfect choice for this story too. I highly recommend this story to all for enjoys adventure, excitement and romance!!
