the first 30 pages came loose from the book. It was a hassle to keep them in place so I had to take them out and set aside while I finished book. Was NOT to happy bout that. But it was an excellant book.

The Pirates Life For Me...
With everything going on about "Pirates of the Caribean" being another blockbuster summer movie, why not another tale of daring do on the high seas? Follow the Courtney family in this second installment of the swashbuckling series as they go after murdering pirates with their own deadly resolve. This book is not just action, there is an underlining love story that is graphic enough to make this book XXX rated. Feel every slash and cut of the sword as you read along. Mr. Smith is a master.
