RT Rating

The Rebel Pirate is a quick-paced tale, complete with smuggling, suspense, rebellion and too many wonderful swashbuckling moments to count. Thorland pens an intriguing slant on the American Revolution as her characters’ shifting loyalties and the changing tides of war keep readers invested in the story — cheering the hero and heroine on as they are caught in a wildly exciting cat-and-mouse game where history is a key character and the adventures keep coming.

British sea Captain James Sparhawk’s mission is simple: Board a rebel ship and bring the vessel to his commander in Boston Harbor. Everything goes according to plan until a “boy” holds a pistol on him. Sarah Ward, daughter of a once notorious pirate turned merchant, can’t lose her family’s ship after their business has nearly been destroyed. With the colonies on the cusp of war, Sarah is playing a dangerous game, made more dangerous by her attraction to Sparhawk. Sarah schemes to free James and, together, they uncover surprising secrets and love. (NAL, Mar., 380 pp., $15.00)
