Samantha Fine’s entire family was
slaughtered five years ago by a man only known as Dervish.
Samantha didn’t perish that night but wished she had as she
was enslaved by a vile plantation owner along with her
friend Joe. As soon as they are able both escape and
Samantha’s revenge against the man that murdered her family
begins. It begins with her transformation from Samantha
Fine to Sam Steele, a pirate of the seas. Her crew knows she
is a woman but no matter, Sam is feared for the raider that
she is. When she needs help to find Dervish, she
successfully finds Luke Bradley; a man who used to sail with
Dervish and who now wants him just as much as Sam.
Swashbuckling action aside, What a Pirate Desires
is a good read – the characters were somewhat cliché but I
found the wit that Samantha possessed quite humorous and
loved the banter between she and Luke. I couldn’t find any
fault with What a Pirate Desires and actually
enjoyed a pleasant afternoon read.
