2006 (June), Captive of My Desires

Devastated by her mother’s death, eighteen-year-old Gabrielle Brooks sets sail from England to a Caribbean island in search of her estranged father. But instead of encountering a distinguished merchant ship’s captain, she discovers her father has become a pirate! After spending three wonderful years sailing and treasure hunting with him, Gabrielle is dismayed when her father decides she must return to London to find a proper husband. His old friend James Malory will sponsor her in polite society.

In London, Gabrielle is escorted to balls and parties by James Malory’s wife, Georgina, and her brother, Drew Anderson, a dashing American sea captain who is visiting. Though drawn to Gabrielle’s fiery beauty, Drew, a fun-loving rogue, wants nothing to do with a young woman hunting for a husband. Incensed by Drew’s indifference, Gabrielle is determined to win his attentions. But when Drew embroils her in a scandal the night before he’s to sail back to America, Gabrielle vows revenge. Enlisting the help of her father’s pirate cronies, Gabrielle commandeers Drew’s ship and takes him prisoner. But as passion runs high on their sea voyage, it becomes difficult to tell who is truly the captor and who is the captive.

One thought on “2006 (June), Captive of My Desires

  1. This book is my all time favorite of her novels. I love all the characters especially Drew. His attitude and mannerism was so intriguing, how could you not fall for him? Not to mention how hot he was suppose to be. Miss Gabrielle is one lucky woman…now I am just wondering if Johanna will write a novel on their children. I know I won’t miss any of the Malory family additional books!
