Years ago, Miss Esme Astell fell hopelessly in love with Charles Brittle, an unassuming and highly respectable London bookmaker.Then he disappeared without a word.The last thing Esme ever dreamed was to meet Charlie again —In a dark alleyway —In a drenching rain —In a chase with the police —In Scotland.Can she resist falling again, this time for the dangerous scoundrel he’s become?

In the Pirate and I, we have a short yet sweet novella that Katharine Ashe brings to us. I haven’t had a chance to pick this author up lately, but when I saw the title, I just knew I had to grab this one up, I just can’t resist those sexy “pirates” .  Now I will say that while I enjoyed this novella quite a bit, I did feel a little loss at times. Maybe if I had read the previous books in the series it might have made a bit more sense. However I did enjoy seeing these two people that once were friends and close to each other, find one another again although a bit differently. Our hero, disappeared for two years, being forced to work on a ship as a pirate, and then reappers needing help so he can disappear for good. I liked seeing these two connect again, and their interactions were quite entertaining. The heroine is spirited, driven and sweet natured. I love seeing how she wants to pursue her own dreams. There are some adventures, sneaky characters that you fall in love with, and a charming dog to add a nice touch to a sweet yet sexy romance. Katharine Ashe delivers a wonderful and endearing love tale with The Pirate and I!!
