A Pirate At Heart Reviews
This is a rather old Silhouette Desire romance. Published in 1989, this book was really quick read with a quasi Halloween theme. Gabrielle was cut off from all her financial trust and family money when she decides to pursue a career in art. She is a sculpter and wants to prove to her family that she can make it in her chosen career even if it means she doesn't have their money or support. However, times are hard and in the town of San Angelo, Tx, people have felt that financial pinch a bit harder than most. So, when Gaby needs a commission from the town to make a sculpture in order to stay in business, she finds herself the victim of an acid tongued editorialist. Mr. Lindsey believes that the council should use the money for a homeless shelter instead of a pointless sculpture. But, when he and Gaby meet at a Halloween party, he regrets that he must tell her the truth about who he really is. Of course he feels bad when he finds out the Gaby will lose her business if the council doesn't decide to have her make the sculpture. When Gaby finds out that homeless people will suffer because of her personal buisness crisis, she withdraws herself from consideration. Now John must find a way to help Gaby, but it won't be easy to get her accept help from him.This is a sweet story. Despite the pumpkin prominently featured on the cover, this story has little to do with Halloween. The costume party at the very beginning was the extent of that holiday theme.I am never sure about a book that is dated in the late 80's or published in the 90's. Sometimes the men are too over bearing or sexist in these older books for my taste. But, although though John stuck to his personal beliefs about the right way to spend the money for the town, he was sensitive to Gaby. He did have his moments when his male pride got in the way though. Gaby was also fighting to stick to her plans and goals, but, we all need help from time to time . So, Gaby also had to let go of her pride a little and learn to lean on others a little bit.This was a quick afternoon read. I doubt you would find this one readily available anywhere, but if you run across it a used bookstore or garage sale etc, for cheap, it's not great, but not bad either. Overall a C.
