This is book 3 in the Love on the High Seas series.
Trying to save the life of her son and mother, Catherine Fry has captained her late husband's ship and gone after the owner of the Ruby Cross. She and her band of pirates soon capture Thomas Glanville's ship, but he is not telling her where the cross is.
Thomas can't believe that he allowed himself to be captured. He is not about to let the Ruby Cross out of his hands, not when it is his means to purchase his own ship. But being held captive by an alluring woman has Thomas thinking of intriguing ways to gain his freedom and they soon give into their mutual attraction.
Can Catherine and Thomas find a way to use the Ruby Cross to get what both of them need?
I really liked that the pirate is this story was the female lead. It definitely put a different twist on the story.
Catherine wanted to use force to get Thomas to give her the cross, but when it came down to it she couldn't.
But she did have power over him in another way and she definitely used it to the best of her ability. Of course, then the tables were turned on her!! The chemistry between these two was red hot!!
I can't wait to see what Hughes come up with next!
