Description from the amazon:
Those who survive the wrath of Red Robert would never guess the pirate's secret—Red Robert is a woman, masquerading as a man. Yet though the swift steel of her sword has spread her reputation to the farthest corners of the map, there is only one treasure she seeks—the blood of her lifelong nemesis… Blair Colm.

Shipwrecked on a desert isle with the handsome Logan Hagarty, she soon rediscovers her femininity in the irresistible captain's arms. But their paradise skies darken with the appearance of their common enemy. Now the two must summon all their strength and cunning to best the evil Colm, and protect the fierce love that has grown between them.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): treacherous (heart)
This book has just the right amount of pirating, sailing, swashbuckling and shipwrecking with a dash of romance during the late 1600s to create a fun and historical read for the pirates in us all.
