Nicholas Addison, celebrated captain of the Blackwell Shipping Fleet, has agreed to take Mrs. Emmaline Sutherland aboard the Pride and ferry the raven-haired beauty across the Atlantic on what he imagines will be a routine trip. But when the ship is attacked by pirates, the seemingly innocent passenger is revealed to be none other than the infamous marauder Lady Anne, whose name strikes fear in the hearts of sailors everywhere—and whose seductive wiles commandeers Nicholas’s affections.

Doesn't everyone love a good pirate tale?  Imagine a dashingly handsome pirate and a beautiful, dark haired beauty held captive on his ship. A tale filled with adventure, treasure and love on the high seas.  Well, The Notorious Lady Anne certainly has adventure, treasure and love on the high seas.  But, in an interesting twist, it contains a beautiful pirate and her handsome captive.

Emmaline has taken on the persona of the pirate, Lady Anne, in order to seek revenge on the owner of Blackwell shipping.  Nicholas Addison has been hired to command a ship in order to try and find out who keeps attacking their ships.  I really liked this twist in the story.  You don't often see a role reversal like this one.  I loved Emmaline and Nicholas together.  They are a perfect match for each other, they just don't see it at first.  One of my favorite parts was the way Nicholas gets Emmaline to marry him.

The story is well written with a couple of great twists and lots of adventure.  I definitely recommend picking up this Loveswept offering.  I haven't had the pleasure of reading any of Ms. Cullen's other books, but I know I'll be keeping my eye out for them.
