Publisher's Summary

What happens when an American heiress to a shipping company crosses paths with a pirate?

Miss Prudence Drake desires nothing more than to return to America and pick up the pieces of her life. After being held captive on the Black Dawn and witnessing her papa's murder, the last thing she wants is to find herself in the hands of another pirate - even if he is handsome and honorable.

Captain Jasper Blackmore has forsaken his past, walking away from England's shores in search of a new adventure after the war left him physically scarred and jilted by the one lady he dared to love. An American hoyden could never fit into his world despite his attraction to her.

Can two people whose life paths are at odds find common ground?

Great historical romance

Loved this book. Well written and James Young really brought the story to life . I love the independence of Prudence and her passion for life. Jasper is just a softy under that tough exterior. Great historical romance that kept me up late in to the night. I

Any additional comments?

Who does not love a good pirate story! Where pirates raid ships and come across a beautiful lady. With a strong leading lady how could any pirate not fall for her, but this pirate is determined to stay single. Hopefully he wakes up in time. Great adventure and love story.

Very refreshing!

I am definitely a fan of Prudence! She wasn't just a damsel in distress. She new what she wanted and was not afraid to show it. Although, Jasper was at war with his feelings im glad the author let us know what was going on in his head. Narration was also enjoyable! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Captain of My Heart

Take one strong-minded woman who has been raised by and on the sea and one brooding yet captivating captain that comes to her aid and you have yourself one smoldering adventure.
Prudence Drake's passion for life lands her in a world of trouble and in the hands of Captain Jasper Blackmore. Jasper is taken by the spirited young beauty but his current life has no room for love.
I liked the chemistry between these two and I could appreciate the complexity of feelings Jasper worked.

Amanda Mariel weaves wonderful worlds on the sea and land and James Young pulls you in with his performance of this story.

Cute and sweet. Not sizzling

A cute short story. A bit on the sugary sweet side. No sex just flirtiness. If that's a word. Anyway it was rated sizzling. No way I'm not sure the kisses were more than sweet.

Unexpected love

I love this story of two unlikely people who fall in love together. The narrator didn’t have much difference in tone for the different characters but didn’t cause a distraction. Highly recommend this story.

Quick Listen

This was a quick story. I feel like so much was missing from the story! Other than that it was a cute story. Narration was good. I would have enjoyed it more if it was a male and woman narrating the story. The narrator has a nice accent though!

Would I listen to it again: yes Did the story keep me engaged: yes Was I invested in the characters: yes What did I like about the story? good pace, interesting characters and pirates - what's not to enjoy! Was there anything that didn't work for me? nope - just good entertaining fun Narrator comment: I enjoyed James Young's narration, he's done a good job bringing Captivated by the Captain to life, making for an enjoyable audio experience

Enjoyable listen!

This is an enjoyable story. I love pirate stories and this one didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed Prudence as she is a lady before her time. At the beginning her father calls her “Poppit”. That just puts a smile on my face. This is filled with wonderful characters besides the two main ones. I did listen to this on audio. This is my first with James Young as the narrator. His Accent was delicious to listen to.
