Aboard the Pirate Lady, Christmas is not looking too merry. Clara tries to lift her spirits with a little holiday baking, but until tattooed rocker Hot Jack Slick, traveling incognito, arrives on the scene, it looks like Clara’s not going to find any spirit in her holidays.
Jack is about to find out that this is one lady pirate who isn’t impressed by fame and fortune and never dates guys in bands. It’s going to take Santa Claus and all his helpers to help Jack break the ice that surrounds this very lovely lady’s heart. And even then, it will be a stretch to make it to her bedroom before Christmas morning dawns.
Pirate Lady Holiday takes us aboard the ship the Pirate Lady. Clara agreed to stay and watch the ship while everyone else made Christmas plans. She is alone and not looking forward to the holiday season. She is determined to uphold her family Christmas traditions so she heads to town for supplies.
Jack is tired of his current lifestyle. He gives up his flight and ends up on the Pirate Lady for the night. He is surprised when Clara shows up and accuses him of trespassing. She doesn’t recognize him and takes pity on him and agrees to let him stay about the ship.
Clara and Jack are two lonely souls that don’t even realize they are searching for something, until that night. They have an easy companionship and seem to enjoy each other’s company. Clara feels comfortable enough with him that she reveals more about herself than she admits to most people. Jack is enjoying being treated like a regular guy without everyone fawning over him.
I enjoyed the interactions between the two and the party was a lot of fun. It was the beginning of Clara coming out of her shell. The gingerbread house construction was a lot of fun and acted as foreplay for them. In the story, we learn a lot more about Clara and her past. I would like to have learned a little more about Jacks but we were provided with a minimal amount.
