Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
you want something done right . . .
When the ruthless pirate king learns of a legendary treasure map hidden on an enemy ship, his daughter, Alosa, knows there’s only one pirate for the job—herself. Leaving behind her beloved ship and crew, Alosa deliberately facilitates her own kidnapping to ensure her passage on the ship, confident in her ability to overcome any obstacle. After all, who’s going to suspect a seventeen-year-old girl locked in a cell? Then she meets the (surprisingly perceptive and unfairly attractive) first mate, Riden, who is charged with finding out all her secrets. Now it’s down to a battle of wits and will . . . . Can Alosa find the map and escape before Riden figures out her plan?

Alosa – A strong female written the right way. She knows her worth, had a hard go growing up but doesn’t let it slow her down, and can take care of herself no problem. It was an absolute delight to see a female MC of this caliber. WELL DONE.
Riden – I had a theory pretty early on about something in regards to an off hand comment he made which was confirmed towards the end so as always vindication was mine!!! (LOL) Riden was a little harder to crack for me overall but I loved that he was so smart and was great at thinking outside of the box. He didn’t let emotions rule him completely. Another spot on character.
ALL THE PIRATES – There were so many great secondary pirates running around that I’d love to know more about! I’m hopeful for more about them in the second book as I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface . . . a girl can hope.
