Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Her [MacGregor's] admirable flair for the comic is sure to entertain.


"Kinley MacGregor is a new name in historical romance. Her first book, "A Pirate of Her Own, has something for everyone. Heart stopping adventure, a romance at times poignant, at times hilarious...and a compelling plot. Ms. MacGregor has a gift for storytelling that makes "A Pirate of Her Own...impossible to put down."-- "Affaire de Coeur"Hilarious and heart-wrenching with sexual tension that sizzles and snaps from word one--definitely one of the best reads of the year. "A Pirate of Her Own is the perfect blend of humor and adventure. Move over Julie Garwood and Dara Joy, there's a stunning new talent in town and her name is Kinley MacGregor!"-- Joanne Underwood, Romance Readers & Writers Forum"Kinley MacGregor has written an old-fashioned swashbuckler filled with romance, adventure, bawdy scenes and enough chills and thrills to keep you burning the midnight oil. An exciting tale, beautifully told."-- Susan Wiggs, author of "The Charm School""Kinley MacGregor is a spirited new voice in adventure romance. The delightfully witty repartee between Serenity and Morgan will bring a smile to your lips; their sexual tension and adventures will keep you glued to the page. Keep your eye on Ms. MacGregor."-- "Romantic Times .".".sure to entertain."-- "Publishers Weekly"

I found this book to be different than most historical romances that I have read due to the fact that the main characters, Morgan and Serenity, never really disliked each other. In most stories...the couples are thrown together by some unforeseen circumstance and they usually hate each other and then eventually fall in love. In this story they were definitley thrown together but started out with a mutual admiration and friendship that turned into a great bond. The book is well written with a very humerous touch which I find in all of Kinley's books as well as the books she writes under the name Sherrilyn Kenyon. I love being able to laugh with a great story. This book is not for the people looking for an erotic romance. It has sparce 'adult', to be exact. Morgan is probably the nicest 'pirate' I have ever read about which is a bit unrealistic for that time but I found him devastatingly alluring and I absolutely loved the character of Serenty because of her outgoing, defiant nature. That in itself is also a refreshing change of pace from the typical women of this era. All in all, this is a delightfully humurous romance story.

All her life, Serenity James wanted to be something more than just what was expected of a woman in the late 1700's colonial America. She wanted adventure and so using her imagination she penned stories to run in her father's newspaper. Unfortunately, it came about that one of the stories she had written of the dreaded pirate - the Sea Wolf came too close to the truth.
Morgan Drake was the Sea Wolf - and a lot of other names fit as well - and he was going to find out from this S.S. James just where 'he' got his information from to have written this story. Of course, the only information he got was the truth that one, S.S. James was a woman, and two, she really didn't know who the Sea Wolf was. But of course, she being highly intelligent - she surmised from his anger over the story that he, Morgan Drake, was the pirate and she would get the story of her life if she could just get him to agree to an interview. Well, on her way to beard the lion in his den - so to speak - Serenity is abducted by a friend of Morgan's who determined that she knew too much. One thing led to another, and they set sail with Serenity as the hostage.
This was a cute story, with several amusing moments between two very stubborn people. Morgan and Serenity were both smitten with one another but too stubborn to admit to it so they fought instead with some hilarious dialogs. I consider this more of an amusing 'light' read to pass an afternoon, nothing that would keep me in suspense to stay up at night. What could have made this story more meaty would have been for the author to have delved more into the background of the main characters which would have given this book more of an emotional punch rather than the gloss over of some very turbulent childhoods that would have 'really' been interesting. All in all, it was a good story and well worth your time to read it.

Yet another fast, fun read from Kinley MacGregor. I've read and enjoyed Master of Desire and Claiming the Highlander and now this one. I still need to read Master of Seduction to complete all of her books to date (and I'm waiting impatiently for Born in Sin, the second in her Highlander series).
This is, I understand, the author's first book and I must say, it's not quite as good as some of her more recent efforts (LOVED Claiming the Highlander!), but it's still fun.
Morgan was such a nice guy that I had trouble buying that he had been the vicious, ruthless pirate known as the Marauder before changing his ways. He was funny, warm, sweet and often frustrated and infuriated by Serenity and her wild ideas. He is attracted to her but can't quite figure out why - she's not his type. She's not a beauty, nor voluptuous, but still he is fascinated by her. A dangerous proposition!
Serenity was really fun. Here's a woman considered by most of her friends, neighbors and family to be an on the shelf spinster who is "too old, too drab and far too opinionated" to ever find a husband. And Serenity, now in her mid-twenties, reluctantly accepts the reality and restrictions of the society she lives in. She longs for adventure as a writer, but her father keeps trying to hold her back and tied to an editing desk. But when Morgan seeks her out after one of her stories about the infamous Sea Wolf is actually published, she gets more adventure than she planned on!
This, along with most of the author's other books, has the main characters having to face consequences to their actions and the realization that romantic dreams rarely resemble reality. An enjoyable and recommended read!

I really enjoy this author's books. she also writes under the name Sherrilyn Kenyon and I have loved her books as well. The are always filled with humor and great passion. She makes the charactes really come to life and you feel like they've become friends of yours.
In this book its about a Pirate, good thing it was named what it was huh? Anyway, The Pirate is the dreaded Sea Wolf. A man who is terrorizing the British navy and helps to free the American sailors that have been impressed by the British. His realy name is Morgan Drake and even though he is legit now he has a sorrid past as a pirate who took any ship. He is suprised to find himself the topic of a newspaper article by S.S. James in Savannah. He decides to go ther and confront the man and to find out his sources. Only when he gets to the newspaper office his world is set upon its ear. the S.S. James is not a man but a woman. Serenity James has worked for her father's newspaper for years and longs to write articles herself. She longs for adventure and for her "Pirate" to come and make that dream a reality. She never realizes thst the rude man asking about her article on the Sea Wolf, one which her father was so upset about, was her "Pirate". Once she does realize it she decided to go find out more info and ends up being kidnapped and taken aboard Morgan's ship, without his knowledge.
The tale gets funnier by the page and the passions between the two get hotter and hotter. I loved the secondary characters in this book and I wonder if several of them might not have had thier own books and I may have missed them, I'll have to check.
The only part I didn't like about this book was the ending because it came to fast. I thought this book could have had a few more adventures in it and lasted a bit longer. It's a book I shall read and reread.
