Pirate captain Thayer Drake lures ships onto reefs for plunder, and business is lucrative. Yet, saving a lass from drowning after her ship wrecks becomes more than he bargained for when the crazy wench dives back into the raging sea for her blasted purse.
Tavern songstress Gilly McCoy, penniless and fleeing from the man who murdered her lover, stowed away on the doomed ship. Now at Drake's mercy, Gilly must earn her passage by performing for the captain. And that is not all: she must also kiss the captain at every ring of the ship's bell. But she discovers kissing the handsome rogue is not entirely a bad bargain....
Drake is intrigued by the beauty, but there is no room in his black heart for a woman. He has demons that he drinks nightly to forget. Meanwhile, Gilly has her own secrets to keep - ncluding why her purse is more valuable to her than her life....

The story flows like a Julie Garwood Historical romance, solid characters, great flow, very clever banter between characters.
I loved Helen Stern's narration of Pride and Passion, and this book is right up there. She has a great voice.
My Favourite narrators are Roslyn Landor, Justine Erye, Susan Duerdan AND Helen Stern.
Yes, and I did.
This was a great story and well worth the credit!
