Publisher's Summary

On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring mission--this time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things don't always go as planned. Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desires - until now!

Jacky adds "Mermaid" to her resume'!

In this seventh book of the Bloody Jack series, listeners will not be disappointed. More crazy luck and unpredictable situations abound. Jacky's new "job" involves salvaging gold from a famous shipwreck, and Jacky is the only "member" of the British Royal Navy who will "volunteer" and can get the job done right . . . almost. Plus, you will find out who her pirate friends are, i.e. those who think of Jacky in a romantic way (men, I swear!), and her pirate enemies, i.e. those who wish her dead, and attempt to make it true. And, Jacky saves the day--again--[sigh] for the Royal Navy. Do they ever get tired of being shown up by a girl? Plus there's cock fighting! And, Jacky and Jaimy are closer than ever to being married, but wait--not so fast!
Did I mention Jacky is reasonably fluent in Spanish? Did I mention she expands her growing circle of admirers (and haters)? Did I mention the cock fighting?
The only reason I give this four stars for story and overall is because I am comparing it to the other books in the series, and a couple of the others are definitely my favorites. So, while this is not my favorite book in the series, it is still an excellent listen, and superbly read by Katherine Kellgren. If I could give TEN stars for performance, I would!
By the way, if you are already a fan of this series, check out the free Audible download of reader Katherine Kellgren interviewing author L.A. Meyer. Lots of insight and fascinating facts!
