    1. 2.5 stars (rounded up b/c it's readable)Well, I'm on a Lynsay Sands kick and I'm trying to expand my 'knowledge' of Pirate Romance, so I genuinely thought this would be a winner. Eh. The best I can say is that this was sorta ok.I know, I know! You're shocked that 16 year old book called Lady Priate didn't blow me away, right?There were parts that I thought were genuinely cute or funny and they would redeem the story enough so that I could keep reading, but there were also some things that I foun [...]


    2. Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksTW: discussion of rape and sexual assault I’ve felt like I’ve had a vitamin deficiency for the past few months, and I finally realized what I needed to correct it. I needed crazysauce. I needed banana-crackers.Valoree (the names!) is the captain of a pirate ship, the Valor (get it?). She and her brother were the children of some peer or another, and discovered when Valoree was about 8 or so that their guardian had bled their inheritance dry. Nothing [...]


    3. Omg!!! This book was so damn funny, so damn wonderful, just so damn everything good! I freaking love Lynsay Sands and every damn book that I've read of hers!


    4. I don't know what it is with me and Lynsay Sands' historical romances, but Lady Pirate was my second opportunity to read a historical romance by this author, and I have to sayI am in awe.It's no secret (well maybe it is to you) that I hold a special place in my heart for pirate stories. I would like to thank Bella Jewel, first and foremost, for providing me a modern day pirate series (Criminals of the Ocean) that has warmed my heart, and has fulfilled every guideline I have in place for a perf [...]


    5. Gotta tell you I enjoyed this book. Of course I listened to it on audio so I didn't have to deal with weird-spelling-names. (Valoree?)It was funny and sweet. Great characters, especially Back From the Dead Red.Good book, fun read.


    6. След смъртта на родителите им, и осъзнавайки, че настойника им е изхарчил наследството им, Валъри и по-големият й брат осъзнават, че да се върнат у дома и да възстановят дома си ще имат нужда от много пари. За целта брат й продава бижутата на майка им, купувайки кораб и подписв [...]


    7. After the deaths of her parents and guardian Valoree was raised aboard her brother's pirate ship. In order to protect her, she was disguised as a boy the entire time, with only one crew member knowing her secret. Her brother's plan was to acquire enough money to restore the estate he's inherited, then retire from the sea. He had promised his crew that they would have a place with him. Just as Jeremy had reached his goal, he was captured and tortured by another pirate, and the money stolen. Valor [...]


    8. I don't even like romance books. I was out with some friends and picked this up as a joke because it so clearly screamed "stereotypical trashy romance novel" (yknow like the ones you see pent up wives/middle aged women reading in media) and I just couldn't resist the hilariously expressive cover. I steeled myself for a corny, cliche romantic and ~*~steamy~*~ (lmfao) experiment that I could retell to friends for some laughs. To be honest? For most of the story, I straight up wasn't mad at it. It [...]


    9. Adequate story. Not as amusing or swashbuckling as I thought it would be but not dull either. The main characters all fell just a little bit short of the mark where I would have cared much about them or their problems. But the cadre of secondary characters was sweet. And the adoptive/you-get-to-pick-your-own family, love and affection was real and prevalent throughout the book. The "tie everything in a bow" / close off the past grand wrap up off the coast of England (where none of that would hav [...]


    10. So, I didn't like this one quite as much as An English Bride in Scotland, but it was still fun, if not a bit long-winded for all the loose ends that needed tying up.Speaking of being tied up, the sex scenes aren't intensely graphic as they are often wont to be in this type of story, but they still manage to be steamy. I enjoyed the romantic pairing in this novel, most especially because their situations were so similar were their personalities. I'm definitely going to continue perusing Lynsay S [...]


    11. How could I not want to read a book titled “Lady Pirate?” Especially when it was written by one of my favorite go-to Authors! This was a fun story to read that had me chuckling at the antics that Valoree was going through, all to provide her crew with a retirement plan. I loved that the pirate crew had voting rights and were able to vote that Valoree become a “proper lady” in order to fulfill the obligations stated in her fathers will before being able to secure the estate which would pr [...]



    12. Another good whodunit. I was a little frustrated with some factors in the ending, though. The story begins with the heroine and her crew swearing vengeance against the pirates who brutally tortured and killed her brother and most of their crew. Midway thru the story we're told that a member of the crew may have betrayed them to the pirates. In the end, we finally get to see her confront the pirate who killed her brother, and what does she do? She freezes, and her husband shoots the man in the ba [...]


    13. A fun, fluffy, sexy romance read for when you just want to switch your brain off! And it was laugh out loud hilarious! I was just cackling to myself at the antics Valoree's men get up to and the predicaments that they wind her up in.While I've found some of Lynsay Sands' stuff boring and frustrating enough to make me want to throw them across the room, Lady Pirate is one of the good ones. Would definitely recommend!Age: AdultsWarnings: Sexually explicit content, but the violence is fairly minima [...]


    14. So far, I love it. Lynsay Sands has done it again. A love story that is simple but the characters make the mistakes of messing up their love lives. Ah, it's refreshing from the bubble-gum teen love stories that are rotting the television. Secert Life of blah blah blah. They haven't a clue about real life drama.


    15. Valoree's brother is tortured to death while coming back after meeting with the government assessor that all privateers have to do. Valoree, that is masquerading as a cabin boy, takes over her brother's captaincy and leads the men to make money to bring her inheritance back up to snuff after her guardian drives the estate into the ground through mismanagement. After getting back to England, Valoree finds that there is a stipulation that in order for her to inherit she must be wed and proof of a [...]


    16. 3.5 stars this book was actually a pretty good book to read on international women's day. At a period in time when women were thought of as property and had absolutely no rights whatsoever, the main protagonist, Valoree, is in fact a captain of a pirate ship and is responsible for the vessel and all the lives aboard. Having respect and honor as few men do that is until she goes on dry land. Valoree is such a fun character and the predicaments she gets herself into are laugh out loud funny, even [...]


    17. I could not think of a combination that I would love more in historical romance. I do love a great pirate story and this exceeded my expectations. It had humor and passion mixed in a captivating story.Valoree has spent years living on her brother's ship, masquerading as a boy. When her brother is killed, she manages to become captain and continue his privateering. She returns to land to reclaim her family's land and inheritance, just to stumble on an obstacle. She must be married to a noble and [...]


    18. This was an impulse buy while grocery shopping late one night, don't let the shiny new cover fool you, as the GoodReads image shows this is a twenty-year old book. Though '96 is a bit late for what Smart Bitches, Trashy Books classifies as an "old school" romance it certainly feels like it. The descriptions, plot, even the love scenes are dated. It's a fun concept, who doesn't love pirates but falls flat. There's not enough time on the boat, and you keep wishing you were back there. There's a my [...]


    19. After going to paranormal, fifty shades, type of books, i went back to the historical romances that made me the romance junky that i am. This book has a woman that has the weight of the world on her shoulders and her reluctance to seek help or comfort. Then you have her equal in every way use every weapon that he can to break down the walls she has created to claim her as his own and in return learns to sit back and relinquish some control back to his wife to keep the spirited lass he fell for. [...]


    20. Captain Valoree Ainsley wants to give up privateering, claim her inheritance, and provide a home for her crew on her English estate. However, there is a catch. She must be married to a nobleman and have a child or be expecting one by her 25th birthday to inherit. Lord Daniel Thurborne must marry in order to claim his inheritance from his grandmother; much needed to improve his estate. Valoree wants a husband she can control and Daniel suspects there is something fishy about this “Lady” with [...]


    21. I really tried to like it. Honest. Maybe I'm not in the mood for a quirky historical romance about a pirate and a lord, but I seriously had difficulty staying focused on the story. The characters were likable and the story line is really cute, but there was something about it that made me not stay hooked. I might try to read this again later.


    22. Somehow I had missed this one years ago. Sands is one of my favorite author s. She does not disappoint. The pirate crew of the ship Valor were hilarious, not intimidating or mean. Valerie was strong willed but sweet. Daniel was so hot.


    23. Even putting aside the tricky icky issues with consent, this book was a let down. I had such high hopes! Lynsay Sands writes phenomenal funny romance! This is the author that gave us the delightful gender-swapping romp of The Switch! How could Lady Pirate go wrong? The plot tacks and jibs, with Valoree's sworn revenge for her brother's death working crosscurrents with the mystery attacks against them in London, various other threads picked up and dropped at whim. And the main challenge of the pi [...]


    24. This was a pretty fun book for quite a few reasons. But the crew was obnoxious with the voting bullshit. And, of course, the scene near the end when they get to the island or wherever. REALLY horrific. Are you kidding me? Even without that part, this book was over 100 pages too long and could have been done WAY better without a lot of that kidnapping crap in the end.


    25. Spoiler!I was mildly enjoying this until she tried to have him hanged, married him while he was drunk, attempted to have sex with him while he was passed out, and then tied him down in order to rape him. DNF


    26. Loved this book, but was a tad disappointed at with the suspense part of the story. Seemed out of left field. However, this book was hilarious and awesome. It was a tad predictable but still overall great.


    27. I mean, it delivered what it promised: a lady pirate. All of the ingredients were good, but I never felt it really come together. The ending also seemed rushed. It was adequate, but I was hoping for a bit more of everything


    28. Well for a minute there I had to wonder if I was going to get my happy ending. Two very stubborn main characters. Still I got it. Interest twist with the woman being in a position of power at a time where that didn't really happen.


    29. I started off enjoying reading about Valoree, her pirate crew, and her quest for a husband to claim her estate, but I disliked how many problems were resolved in the second half of this book. However, I will seek out other (hopefully superior) pirate romances as a result of reading Lady Pirate.
