The Pirate's Tempting Stowaway by Erica Ridley

Clara has been told she has consumption.  She's sent her daughter away, even the postman won't come to her door.  She's just waiting to die...

The author graciously gave me a copy of this ebook to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

Clara has a surprise coming.  A man comes to her door and isn't even afraid of the gun she has.  She tells him she's sick and he doesn't care.  He's come to take her to England.  He's being paid to do it but she doesn't know that.  That's where her daughter is and it's just too tempting.  She has nothing to lose.

Ms. Ridley always writes sweet romances.  This one is no exception.  

Captain Blackheart loves the sea.  He's a pirate but he has rules.  No killing, take only what they can spare, behave like gentlemen.  He still has a reputation.  Clara is amazed when she finds out that's who she's got passage with.  She's more amazed when she finds out she has to share his cabin on board.  

They have nothing in common.  He loves the sea, she loves the land.  But they have lots to talk about, laugh about and tease about.  They're falling in love with each other.  It's impossible.  Their main interests are too different.

It's a good thing she spent some time on board the ship.  The crew finally gets Captain Blackheart's attention and tells him what to do.
