It all comes down to politics, I suppose. Or maybe it was just God’s way of letting me know that it was time to stop and follow Him instead of trying to do things my way,” he said as he reached down to retrieve the valise.

–Jean Luc Beaumont 


The Pirate Bride is the adventurous tale of one very bright young girl’s unique journey to womanhood. At 13 Maribel Cordoba crosses paths with Jean Luc Beaumont, captain of the Venganza, and his band of privateers, also known in some circles as pirates in the year 1724.  Little does she know that her future will bring her back eventually to the handsome captain and his swashbuckling crew.

The book is a heartwarming tale with out of the ordinary characters that represent the best and worst of humanity.  The storyline twists and turns through the years as Maribel inadvertently keeps remembering her pirate days from the past as they come back to play a role in her future. Sprinkled with historical details and intertwined with faith, the book is a fun read for lovers of historical and inspirational fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and hope you do too! Book Three in the series, The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep,  is next on my to-be-read pile.  #ThePirateBride

  1. This was a fun story! I’m also looking forward to reading The Captured Bride. I have a few to read before I can get to it, but it won’t be too long! 🙂
