I bought this book due to the great ratings and reviews it had, and I'm glad I bought it. The book is very well written and researched. There are many twists in the story. I found the romance in the novel to be the cute and tempting sort, because it talks about two people who can't be together. So even when James and Anna are attracted to each other, they have to do their best to stay away. Which added a tempting feeling to the story. I felt the ending should've lasted one more chapter, maybe because I was hoping for a little more romance <3 The concept of Pirates was refreshing, and the cover is beautiful :) Totally worth buying.
