    1. This book was such an enjoyable read It followed Maribel Cordoba Red the young daughter of a Spanish ship captain and Jean Luc a French ship captain After taking over the ship of Maribel and her father, Jean Luc forms a special place in his heart for Red, though he does not realize it for years later Maribel is a reader of pirate books, knowing all ships, the duties of all aboard, and cannot help but irritate the French captain After years of searching for the rebellious Red who has grown up in [...]


    2. This is what I d call my guilty pleasure type of book The fast pace kept me engaged and entertained A fun way to spend a few hours.


    3. An enjoyable read full of adventure A descendant from the Lytton family tree from book one of the series, Maribel Cordoba finds herself having quite an adventure as a twelve year old when out at sea with her estranged father The story fast forwards to eleven years later on as she begins a new life in New Orleans, in 1724 I enjoyed the character of Maribel, with her insatiable curiosity, friendly nature and intelligent bantering with the shipmates, especially Captain Jean It was a fun story to re [...]


    4. FTC DISCLAIMER I RECEIVED AN E ARC FROM NETGALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEW One hundred years after Mary Chapman and her family arrived in the New World on the Mayflower, Maribel Cordova arrives in New Orleans to find the man who holds the key to finding her father s lost treasure Attorney Jean Luc Valmont has buried his past so deep that he hopes that no one will ever be able to find it [...]


    5. Pirates Oh, no I meant Privateers This book was fun The heroine named Maribel was a charming girl and when she grew up, she became a lovely, adventurous lady There were many adventures and friendly privateers, that risked their lives to save strange small girls It was hard to suppress a smile while reading how kind and protective these privateers were Times and places described in the book were interesting and colourful However, the whole story felt a bit juvenile There was a lot of friendly ban [...]


    6. This book was a fun, sweet, mystery filled adventure I felt as if I was swept away on a privateer ship in the Caribbean With a little red headed girl who endeared herself to the crew as Red.The Captain, a handsome, feared, and brave man who had me swooning I was captivated by this read The talented author is new to me and I will most definitely be reading from her With that said, I would love to see these characters again with maybe William Spencer as the hero I was given a copy of this book by [...]



    7. I have to say I expected a little from this book and was a bit disappointed overall some spoilers below Keep in mind the book description doesn t even kick in until almost halfway through the book The book begins with one of the main characters, Maribel, a young girl of 12 13 as she is taken aboard the ship of a privateer after her father is killed The captain, a man about 12 years her senior, doesn t want her on board, but she later sneaks back on his ship She endears herself to those around h [...]


    8. Please Note I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way.Writing a review of a book I don t like is not easy I understanding how much work must have gone into this book, but I would be remiss if I just gave it a pass I was looking forward to this novel because I love historical fiction I love all the details that make me feel as if I know how the people of the time lived But none of this is present in T [...]


    9. First, let me point out that the description given for the book posted above is pretty much completely misleading The true synopsis of the book is that Maribel a twelve year old, pirate loving, adventure seeking bookish Spanish nobleman s daughter, is orphaned and becomes a stow away crew member on Jean Luc, a.k.a, Captain Jean Beaumont s privateering ship much to his disapproval Along the way, Maribel charms not only the crew, but also Captain Beaumont and becomes the lookout for the ship After [...]


    10. So much love for The Pirate Bride Before reading this one I d just finished another seafaring pirate related story that was a major let down but reading The Pirate Bride was so refreshing and delightful However, I found the title was fairly misleading, as was the excerpt The first half of the book takes place when Maribel is 12 and Jean Luc 24 ish She manages to end up on his ship and works as one of his crewmembers, then the second half of the book takes place when he s 35 and she s 23 There is [...]


    11. My only disappointment in this book, I could not read it in one night and had to put it down It was so enjoyable with lots of adventure, excitement, suspense and great characters The love demonstrated in this novel was much than a romantic love between the two main characters Without giving the story away, there is a deep friendship between two orphans Maribel Cordoba 11 and William Spencer 12 years old Captain Jean Luc of the Pirateer ship Vanganza , his first Mate Mr Bennett, Rao and Piper fr [...]


    12. This is the second book of the Daughter of the Mayflower series After reading The Mayflower Bride the first in the series , I told myself I wasn t gonna read another cause it was too religious for me What can I say Even though I wasn t fond of the religious part of the book the writing story line greatly intrigued me I thought I will give the series writer one chance to keep my interest I am so glad I did.This book was another can t put down book The story, the emotions, the ups downs, just to [...]


    13. The Pirate BrideBy Kathleen Y BarboAs I read this book, I thought it was taking too long for all the twists and turns to reveal long held family secrets I m not very patient but then it ended too quickly so I read it again.What a delightful tale of adventure on the high sea, intrigue, noble privateers, pirates, orphans and a magical romance with some interesting history culminating in a happy ending My kind of book Thank you, Kathleen Y Barbo for delightful book I received an advance reader copy [...]


    14. The Pirate Bride is the exciting second installment from the Brides of the Mayflower series I am enjoying this series and The Pirate Bride did not disappoint I was hooked right from the start and absolutely loved Maribel She is a strong and admirable woman Kathleen Y Barbo does a fabulous job with the historical details, making a reader feel as though they are part of the story I cannot wait to read the next one from the Brides of the Mayflower series I give The Pirate Bride 5 plus stars and hig [...]


    15. This story stole me away And I loved every minute of it The book is quick moving, kept me guessing, and had twists and turns I hadn t expected I loved that the romance elements were kept to the end, but I do wish it had been a little involved and in depth That being said, I enjoyed the sweetness of it and the eye opening experience of a young girl turned woman The story is very well written and the title fits the story perfectly I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait for the next book in the M [...]


    16. I enjoyed The Pirate Bride by Kathleen Y Barbo, but it wasn t my favorite by this author It starts out when Maribel is 12 years old and taken from her family, captured by a privateer and later rescued and taken to an orphanage Years later she is found by her family and discoveries are made She has to decide who she can trust Her family or Jean Luc High seas adventure and romance Looking forward to the next book in the Daughters of the Mayflower series.I received this book from NetGalley with no [...]


    17. The Pirate s Brideis an easy afternoon escape I quickly read this book in one setting and enjoyed the story of a girl who was captured by privateers It took a couple turns I did not see, but wrapped up very quickly This was a interesting look at early New Orleans and piracy priveteering, but I wish we got a little history and background about New Orleans.




    18. Fans of Mary Lu Tyndall s pirate series may enjoy Y Barbo s latest tale of Maribel, a young child who happens to be captured by the infamous privateer, Jean Luc Valmont In a quest for vengeance against Maribel s father, Jean Luc finds himself saddled with an orphan or so he thinks When Maribel falls overboard during a French ship s attack, and Jean Luc is badly injured, their paths part, only to converge years later Jean Luc is nursed back to health and finds a new start with his family Maribel, [...]


    19. I really enjoyed The Pirate s Bride It s an adventrous Christian fiction tale of a young girl who is captured by privateers However I did not feel like the book was sufficiently wrapped up, so for that I gave it a four I would ve liked a solid epilogue, but hopefully we ll get a sequel of some sort.


    20. It is 1725 A young 11 year old girl travels with her father to his new posting in the Spanish colonies She is completely fascinated by her book full of pirate stories So when their ship is attacked by a French privateer she sees it as a big adventure Privateers by the way were privately outfitted ships that where officially allowed to attack the country a country was at war with That enabled a king to enlarge his power at sea without having to pay a dime No he would get a share of the spoils.Mar [...]


    21. First, thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion Second, the blurb for this book is totally incorrect The story you ll get is not anything like what it says This was quite an interesting book Maribel Cordoba leaves her home in Spain with her father, headed for the Caribbean On the way, their ship is attacked by privateers Maribel s father falls overboard and she herself is taken onto the privateer s ship Believing her mother and grandfather dead, Maribel tr [...]
