too many pirates

For the last several weeks, I have been struggling to read a paperback romance "High Seas to High Society" by Sophia James 277 pages and also listen to an audiobook Sovay by Celia Rees (I'm about 6 discs in). Both are great escape stories but both are about girls masquerading as boys, one as a pirate and one as a highwayman, and both have father issues (one pirate dead, one escaped to Paris to avoid arrest) and it has been very very confusing. But delicious adventure, and the whole dress like a boy to accomplish your goals ploy is always a good one.

Also, in the middle of all that pirate goodness. I read Gone with the Wind for book group, 1000 pages and about 200 pages of criticism, mostly from the new book Frankly, My Dear, which was excellent. And what is a blockader if not practically a Southern gentleman pirate.....
