Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Occasionally, we romantic fantasizers need a short, cute paperback to swoon over and guiltily indulge in. To Catch a Pirate is one of these. One thing that I really liked was that it is historically accurate and, therefore, fairly believable. I mean sure, some aspects are far-fetched, but the background of 1700s piracy is stable in the story. Another thing was James. He was darkly charming, flirty, brave, tragic, and (in the end) tender and caring -- too perfect to ever be real, but that’s what these novels are for. Annalisa was not as compelling, but she wasn’t annoying either, which is saying a lot for heroines these days. She gets points for cleverness and being a go-getter, for caring about her dad and trying to shape her own destiny despite personal tragedy, instead of being a rich, wallowing brat. Other than that, her personality as conveyed through dialogue is pretty lukewarm. The love triangle was not annoying (wow!), and it, too, was believable. It provided some interesting conflict and moved the plot along. I also appreciate that the “other guy” was not a perfect asshole or perfect nice guy who loses the good girl to the bad boy. Those two stereotypes are tired. This guy was upstanding, handsome, and brave, but he didn’t quite understand Annalisa, and that is why he wasn’t right for her. There is a good deal of swashbuckling in this book, which is good, especially since it is needed to balance out the occasional cheese. The book is pretty fun and swoony overall, and it is just tad too racy for a Disney Channel original movie, but would otherwise make a good one.
