In this action-packed historical romance, the only time people rest is when they're downed with fever or knocked unconscious. Nineteen-year-old Courtney Farrow, daughter of Duncan Farrow, the most feared pirate on North Africa's Barbary Coast, can fight, swear and think as well asif not better thanmost men. But the time is 1804 and the U.S. Navy is attacking and destroying pirate strongholds. In battle, Courtney, disguised as a boy, is captured and forced to become cabin boy to Lt. Adrian Ballantine, proud, handsome, and the only man who can tame her spirit. He has other things on his mind, though, namely discovering who is selling secrets to the pirates; she, meanwhile, suspects a traitor in the pirate ranks also. Packed with well-drawn characters, fiery sea battles and, for the most part, accurate information, this book is a good read. (April)
