Madeleine Russell knew she had to try and find out the truth as she knew her father had not runaway with all the money. She decided to go after Captain Morgan and to do so she will become a housemaid in his resident. Maddy will not be expecting the attraction she felt for the Captain and she will fight the attraction but not for long.
Captain Thomas Morgan aka Luca had a shady past and he was trying to become a better man but he was still ruthless. He will be instantly attracted to the new maid but angry at the same time knowing the maid was Russell’s daughter. He will watch her carefully as he tries to figure out what she was doing.
Never Trust a Pirate is the second book to the series Scandal at the House of Russell by Anne Stuart. I really loved this book. You are swept away into the story especially with the mystery that the daughters are trying to uncover, who killed their father. Well from the first book you already know who the killer was but it was interesting to read how each sister so far has dealt with the enemy and yet that enemy has gotten away. It will be up to Sophie in the last book to stop the killer.
So, Maddy’s character was not exactly a snob but she was used to a good life. She does work hard especially as the need to bring down her fathers murderer is pulsing through her blood. I liked the way that she stood her ground. She was a little whiny at times but it was nothing annoying. It was even understandable as anyone who life changed that dramatically would not always be in good spirits. Then there was Captain Morgan aka Luca. He was a heartless man and ruthless or at least he portrayed that man, and he did it well. I liked Luca for the most part but he was a hard man. When it comes to Maddy he doesn’t really soften but he lets himself feel more for this woman.
I will be reading the third and last book to the series next.
