Goodreads Summary:
There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
 

Review

Daughter of the Pirate King has smoothly sailed its way into my heart. I picked it up just before bedtime and let's just say I didn't end up getting enough sleep lol. No regrets. I wish the book would go on forever.

The story starts right away with Alosa being "kidnapped" by pirates who want to hold her for ransom since she's the princess. The captain and crew of the Night Farer definitely bit off more than they could chew as again and again Alosa proves to be an impossible to contain prisoner. It was so much fun to see her toy with those that underestimated her.

Alosa is my new idol. She's independent, honest and feisty as hell. She doesn't shy away from confrontations and never backs down from a challenge. I wish I could be as ballsy and forward as she is. Every trick she had up her sleeve (one quite literally) had me smiling. She bested most of her enemies in effortless ways. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of her scorn though; those that have wronged her don't exactly end up in the best positions. Beyond her ruthless demeanor Alosa does have a soft side. Really, she's just a bloody joy to read ;) Her special skills didn't surprise me but I enjoyed seeing it come to light.

The banter between Alosa and Riden is everything. Holy smokes the back and forth, their push and pull were hilarious and hot. The stubbornness they share and the burdens they carry made them such a match. I officially have a new OTP. My shippy heart is oh so full and happy. More Alosa and Riden shenanigans please!!

The tables have certainly turned by the end of this book. Since the title to the sequel is slightly spoilery I won't mention it but I am so excited! If you love girl power, playful banter and pirate-y action then Daughter of the Pirate King is an adventure not to be missed.
