A Pirate Princess by author Brittany Jo James Spotlight !


The only thing a pirate desires more than his ship is his treasure and the crew of The Beloved Loss holds the most valuable jewel on the sea… their pirate princess.

Enchanting and spirited Corisanda St. Aubin has been a prisoner aboard The Beloved Loss since she was born. Cori’s dream of escape has been crushed countless times by her father, the heartless Captain Marin St. Aubin. She’s accustomed to her father’s hatred but nothing can prepare Cori for the malicious quartermaster, Falco de Vries, who schemes to marry her. 
The Count of Calais and sea trader, Burke Belcourt, has been trapped by a malevolent woman’s demand for marriage. In an attempt to prolong his wedding, Burke agrees to bring the unlawful pirate captain of The Beloved Loss to justice for the King of France. He soon discovers that Marin St. Aubin is no easy target… but not until he finds himself locked aboard The Beloved Loss with the beautiful pirate princess.
Cori doesn’t believe Burke’s ridiculous claim of being a respectable man but Burke has no desire to convince her otherwise. The last thing he needs is another conniving woman trying to snare him. Risking their lives for freedom, Cori and Burke prepare for a hazardous escape together. The desperate prisoners are confident about defeating their enemies but the one thing they cannot overcome is their unwanted yet undeniable feelings for each other.

They share two rowdy sons, Jagger and Jett. Her life revolves around living for God, caring for her family and writing, writing, writing.

“Jessi, I need your help with something.”
“Oh that’s rich Nate. Really nice. Why would I ever want to help you? You were the one who left me, remember?”
“It’s just one little favor. It’ll be done by the end of weekend, and then you will never have to see me again. I promise.”
“Look buddy, you need to get out of my room before I call security. I don’t think you can sweet talk them into letting you stay.”
“How are you going to do that? You are in a bathtub and your phone is conveniently located in my back pocket.” She thought for a moment about what was behind that back pocket and how nice it would be to just sneak a quick squeeze before she banished the thought.
“Honestly Nathan. What is this favor you need?”
“I’ll tell you tonight over dinner.”
She dunked down into the bathtub muttering to herself. Dinner? Not a good idea. Not with him. She might do something stupid. Like jump him from over the table, or hit him over the head with a plate! Coming back up she slicked her hair back then gave him a killer look.
“Where is my towel?”
“Oh…I don’t know. I probably picked it up and put it back in the bathroom. Couldn’t let you get away without me getting what I want now could I?”
He gave her a smug grin then quickly felt it melting off his face as she suddenly raised herself out of the tub, hot water and bubbles sliding down her naked form. She stepped from the water as he jumped up and off the edge of the bed. He hadn’t expected that move from her. And oh boy, what a move… she was completely grown up now. Lush curves in just the right spots rounded out ever so slightly, where a coltish twenty two year old figure had once lived.
She slid up to him with an impish look on her face, wearing nothing but a few lingering bubbles. She got real close, the steam rising from her breasts to hit him right in the face, more painful than the earlier slap he had received. Sliding her hands up his chest he inhaled raggedly, then said in a small voice that was horse with longing, “Please don’t knee me again. I don’t think I’d survive it.” She slid her hands around to his back.
“Oh, there’s only one thing I want from you right now, stud.” Her voice was low and seductive while the scent of her, woman and something earthy and exotic wafted up to him as he inhaled quickly, trying to keep a grip on himself, not to mention control over his suddenly raging body that was making him feel like some untried teenager faced with Mrs. Robinson.
“And what’s that?” He barely chocked out. Had he actually squeaked on that last note?!? How long ago had he last done that?
She boldly placed both hands squarely on his gorgeous derriere, and squeezed, causing his knees to begin shaking. Jessi began shaking as well, from anger. “My phone. You lied. Where is it!?”
“In the back pocket… of my dress pants.”
“Arg!” She pulled her hands reluctantly off his tush but couldn’t help a quick smack. she walked away towards the bathroom leaving him in a puddle of lust and nerve endings. She walked towards the bathroom, leaving him in a puddle of lust and nerve endings, before calling over her shoulder as he held his breath. “Fine. You win this round. Pick me up in two hours.” The door shut behind her leaving a scent of temptation that Nathan broke from with a fair amount of difficulty. He figured he’d take the ice bucket with him back to his room. It would be the perfect end to the cold shower he was in serious need of.
