Avast, Matey! Here There Be Pirates!

Sea Change - Darlene Marshall

This book takes a lot of frothy, over-the-top romance tropes -- skinny, plain-Jane English miss disguised as a man, kidnapped by pirates, falls in love with devastatingly handsome pirate captain, who is somehow attracted to her despite her plain looks and the fact that he thinks she's a he, captain discovers her secret and is so angry that "punishing kisses" ensue, etc. -- but Darlene Marshall's research, humor, and character development keep the overdone plot from feeling stale.
