Kiryn Encardi’s world took a drastic
turn the day she found out her parents had perished on a
peacekeeping mission. Now she is the Captain of her own
starship and the head of a pirate crew that has held a
colony blockaded for years. The only irony is that she is
highly attracted to the “Professor” that they have sent as a
peace envoy to talk and make an alliance with her. But she
won’t let herself care about someone that is from such a
technologically un-advanced culture.
Darrak Cain can’t believe the stunning
beauty before him that not only is the ship’s Captain but
seems to now be holding him hostage. Why suddenly is his
body telling him that he needs to do other things to her
Will the two work out a personal as
well as professional peace? And will the Professor show the
Captain how not to always rely on technology?
I loved The Pirate and the Professor, mostly
as the pirate in this story was a woman, where in most
traditional stories it would have been the man. By
reversing the roles Ms. Levigne was able to explore a few
different angles to the story and I felt it made it fresh
and new. I thoroughly enjoyed the reversal of roles
throughout The Pirate and the Professor.
