Sophie Crestwood is never going to catch a husband, and she’s not even sure she wants one. Her father is a gossip, her mother keeps her nose in a book, and naughty brother, Jack, has been dismissed from boarding school. Worst of all, a pirate moves next door into Pembroke Hall.
When Sophie’s sent to a matchmaking party at a neighboring estate, the rumored pirate from Pembroke arrives and distracts everyone from the summer festivities. Unguarded, her feelings about the mysterious Captain Murdock bloom into a trusted friendship that Sophie fears may come to mean more than anyone would ever suspect.
Can she unbury the truth about the rumors and allow her heart its true desire?
“This book is so well written, it features an uncomplicated heroine, a wandering but endearing younger brother, eccentric parents, a likable hero and an unexpected turn. I so enjoyed reading A Pirate at Pembroke from beginning to end. A clean Austin styled romance that keeps you hooked. I loved the way the author took us through the mind of the heroine, showing her journey to maturity and finding out not only who she was but how she fitted into her complex family learning to love them for who they are.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this charming novel. Ms. Thorne’s writing sparkles, and her voice is period appropriate, unlike many modern authors of Regency drama. If you’re a fan of Austen, you’ll love this book!”
“Beautiful captivating story that takes you back in time.”
