It will be a nice change of pace from my regular reading.
Here's what the book is about:
Stephanie Lowe decides Maine schooner captain and pirate descendent Ivan Rasmussen deserves to be called Ivan the Terrible. The house she just bought from him is falling apart and possibly haunted. He complains about her fish-eye stew and burnt chocolate chip cookies. He makes fun of her hair after she's had to comb it while using a toaster as a mirror. And on top of all that, he has the nerve to be charming, handsome and overboard in love with her. This is one pirate captain who is determined to acquire the treasure of a lifetime.
Why do I keep reading romance novels? They are so corney and unbelievable! Ivan thought he loved Stephanie only about a day after being on the same boat together, even though he's a self-proclaimed womanizer. Please! I don't believe it for one second. Over a greater time period this story would be more believable. Although, Evanovich really does do a good job of painting Ivan as a hunk (yum)! And what's with Janet Evanovich and the name Stephanie? Does she have a kid named Stephanie (if so, poor kid, she's getting modelled after the hokey characters in this book!)? The cover is pretty though, so bonus marks for that!
