"A Keeper!"

ONCE A PIRATE is the debut novel of author Susan Grant. It also happens to be one of the few novels I have read straight through in one day.

Lt. Carly Callahan is a fighter pilot who crashes into the Atlantic Ocean. She is pulled from the ocean by pirate, Andrew Spencer. Andrew believes Carly is Lady Amanda, the soon-to- be bride of his rival. Both Andrew and Carly are stubborn, strong willed people. Carly refuses to believe that she has traveled back into time until she has researched her situation and Andrew refuses to believe that Carly is not Lady Amanda. He also fights his attraction to Carly. Will Carly convince Andrew of who she is and where she is from or will she be sacrificed to the horrible Duke of Westridge? Will Andrew ever explain why he is willing to sacrifice Carly? These were just a few of the questions racing around in my head as a read this book. I loved that the action in this book did not stop. Even better was the laughter. Andrew's problems understanding Carly's ideas and the antics of the crew would surprise me through out the book causing quite a few people to doubt my sanity.

Ms. Grant has taken the often used plot of time travel and made it into more. It is wonderful to see a strong heroine with an unusual job. I have put this book in a place of honor on my keeper shelf.
