In tone and the ballsiness of the main character, this book reminded me of something by Barbara Michaels. Which is a really good thing! But about 20% through I started to wonder if this novel had a plot, and I'm still wondering. Also, even though that pirate guy is marginally interesting on his own in a obviously-modeled-after-Michael-Douglas-in-Romancing-the-Stone sort of way, I didn't feel like there was any chemistry between him and the main character.
Basically not a lot going on keep my interest in this one. Not that there weren't things happening, it's just that all the things seemed pointless. This book needed a MacGuffin or something.
