5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling! Very highly recommended Feb. 1 2002
By C. Penn
Format:Paperback
Rafael Adriano recently discovered of the underwater site a ship portrayed in Greek myth. The scientific community's interest quickly gave way to general interest when a few spin-doctors capitalized upon his pirate good looks and romantic aura. Now he wants to find the remains of a Civil War clipper ship captained by the successful privateer Juan Rodiguez del Flores, and believes professor Cora Prescott holds the key.
Cora bought her home from the University where she teaches. The family of Abigail Conrad once owned her home. Abigail kept diaries of her illicit affair with a man she does not identify, but could easily have been Juan. Rafael believes those diaries may contain the knowledge needed to find the remains of the Juan's clipper ship. With the university bringing considerable pressure to bear upon her, Cora agrees to aid Rafael's quest, in return for a bit of help. Her sister's dumped her three daughters on Cora for the summer, and she needs a nanny. Along with searching the house for missing diaries, however, Rafael vows to awaken the smoldering passion carefully concealed beneath Cora's prudish demeanor.
The children, complete with Benedict Bunny and oyster spit, add a marvelously amusing element. They also cast the rogue pirate in a responsible, caring role as he lures them into good behavior or when he rescues the bunny. Author Neesa Hart displays her remarkable story telling skills with a careful balance between the secondary plot of a research project and the main plot of the growing romance between the staid professor and the swashbuckling rouge. The sophisticated Rafael allows their romance at unexpectedly slow, and sizzling pace without ever rushing his counterpart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hate the Title, Love the Story Jan. 21 2002
Format:Paperback
This book if definitely an example of how one should not judge the story by its title. Luckily, I'd read a review that piqued my interest enough to overlook the title. I'm glad I did.
Cora Prescott, a professor at a North Carolina college, is researching the diaries of a mid-19th century woman whose house Cora now owns and in which the diaries have been found. Rafael Adriano is an archeologist with a penchant for seeking out old ship wrecks. He's positive the original owner of the diaries was romantically linked to the captain of the ship Rafael is searching for and that the diaries will provide clues to the ship's location. He needs to research the diaries, but one thing stands in his way: Cora Prescott.
This could have been a story in which an domineering male simply overpowers the female(physically or emotionally) and takes the diaries for himself. However, Ms. Hart gives the reader a story of two people working out a way to arrive at a solution beneficial to both. The characters are assertive without being overly-aggressive and the cast of secondary characters runs the gamut from sweet to slimy.
Although I have several of Ms. Hart's previous books in my ToBeRead pile, HER PASSIONATE PIRATE,was the first one I'd read, but I'm already looking forward to her next entry in category romance.

The sophisticated Rafael allows their romance at unexpectedly slow, and sizzling pace without ever rushing his counterpart. He also discovers his intellectual and spiritual equal in the reticent professor, thereby lending the relationship a strong sense of balance. Moreover, despite a large and varied cast, characters appear fully developed with their own quirky personas without threatening to overwhelm the narrative. A wonderfully entertaining, sensual and seductive story, HER PASSIONATE PIRATE comes very highly recommended.
