Summary

When Peyton Abercrombie runs away from an arranged betrothal, she is soon discovered by Captain Jackson Lafitte stowing away aboard the Mon Cherisse.  

"Did you say your last name is Lafitte?" Peyton glanced around the Captain's cabin. "Oh my goodness; a sword, a crew of uncultured men, barrels and barrels of who knows what all…you, Captain, are a pirate! ....I am on a pirate ship!"  

"I prefer to call it a cargo ship," Jackson replied. "And I'm sorry to inform you that you won't be staying."  

"Oh, please let me stay - I promise I won't be any trouble." Peyton looked longingly into Jackson's eyes with a silent plea. Jackson sighed, knowing it was a crazy request. "I'll take you as far as Grand Isle - but that's it."  

"Truly?"  

"You'll have to stay hidden until we dock." Jackson glanced around the cabin. "I'll sleep in the bunk room with the men. Where are you planning to sleep?"  

"The top bunk here looks fine to me."  

"That's Sinbad's bed."  

"Who's Sinbad?"  

"My cat."  

"Your cat? Pirates don't have cats, they have parrots. What kind of pirate are you, anyway?"  

Peyton received a pair of raised eyebrows, strongly suggesting that she was pushing her luck.  

"Oh, fine, I'll sleep with your cat."  

Enjoy the voyage as this romantic comedy erupts upon stormy seas...

Fun, Short, Clean

I enjoyed this short listen by Renee Riva. The story was cute with endearing characters. I loved the humor in the story too. Simbad stole some moments. Samuel Deeter did a great job with his distinguished voices for the various characters. I liked how the story was totally predictable.

A fun and funny story on the high seas

I don't normally like pirate stories, but wanted to give this one a chance when I read the blurb. It was a fun story and funny with adventure and romance. I like the way Renee Riva writes (this the first of her books that I have read). The characters were fun and the cat actually made me like cats for once.:)

I like Samuel's voice, pacing and phrases. I do think that his slight southern twang was a bit "off" for a story about a pirate who's family is from France. Even with that little distraction, the story was fun to listen to and Samuel's voice was pleasant, I hope he will narrate westerns.

Short, sweet and funny Historical story!

This was my first Renee Riva's book and I love her writing. This sweet Historical story is fast-paced and funny, filled with mystery, adventure, action, twists and some treasure, of course! I love the two main characters! Peyton is hilarious, feisty and strong! Captain Jackson is also hilarious, alpha man and protective! I also love the cat, of course! I love the ending. This was my first listen to Samuel Deeter. The narration was good and easy to listen. I like his female voice. I also love the French part in this story.

short but sweet

Such a sweet story with a bit of humor, adventure, crime, and action. Payton escapes her stepfather and the man he has bequeathed her to. She does away on a ship. Thinking the captain is a pirate. The captain agrees to rescue her. Renee Reba has done A great job with this short historical romance. The story was complete. It did not feel rushed or missing parts. Samuel Fester was amazing with his narration.

I was given my copy of this book at my request. This review is my honest thoughts and opinion.

Jackson's Treasure

The story is short and sweet, with a few minor twists. The gold twist was my favorite. The story is fast paced and your able to finish it all in one sitting. Peyton is a strong lead female character and the captain at first appears to be a pirate, but I think its more of a cover.

Jackson’s Treasure

Running from an arranged marriage and straight into the arms of an honorable pirate. This is a short sweet romance with a bit of comedy added. I loved the little twist that was thrown in. An enjoyable listen.

not really for me

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I requested this book, but it is definitely a short romance story. That was pretty much it. Not really my thing.
