A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?
Ok, I love books about the 'High Seas'. I love reading about pirates, and sailors who meet and fall in love. Even though this book isn't about a pirate falling in love, it is about sailors, or should I say Captains?!

And that's not the only secret she has, Her father was the Famous, Captain Clancy, But everyone made him like a hero, and he didn't want to be her Hero, just a very good father...besides what they say he has accomplished would have taken him 200 yrs to do!
One day while at her Friend, Jennifer Pemberton's house, her brother( Jen's Brother) Comes for a visit, and Dallas Knight, and she falls head over heals for him...but does he share her feelings? Or does he only she her as his Sister's Clumsy friend?
