There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

I just loved this book! It seems as though young girls don't have a lot of role model nowadays and Alosa is a perfect one. She can outfight and outwit any man which comes in handy considering her mission for her father. This book has a lot of action, drinking and thievery in the typical pirate fashion and is a lot of fun to read.
There is a strong current of romance between Alosa and Riden but there is no explicit sex or any sex at all for that matter. It's a great book for readers of all ages who are looking for a fun and frolicking adventure. I am really hoping that there will be another book in Alosa's tale.
