Captive of my Desires off my bookshelf randomly.
Gabrielle is lost when her mother passes unexpectedly. Determined not to let her solicitor pawn her off on some womanizer guardian until she is of a legal age to claim her inheritance Gabby books passage on a ship and heads to the Caribbean to find her father. Much to her dismay the respectful man she always thought to be a merchant is actually a pirate.
Despite a few steamy scenes I enjoyed Captive of my Desires, Gabby had just the right amount of spunk to her. Despite being a larger love story things never seemed to drag but fit naturally and smoothly. I would be willing to read more of Johanna Lindsey's work.
