Review: “The Healer and the Pirate” by Julie Bihn & Maggie Phillippi

A contemporary fairy tale suitable for all ages. I loved it, as did my 13 yo daughter. Well-written and full of wonderful words of godly wisdom, I would highly recommend this book for anyone who likes to read romance, especially fairy-tale romance.

We all know the end-the guy and the girl get together. It happens that way in most romances (yes, I’ve read a few where they don’t – and I’ve hated them), but the intriguing part about any book is finding what it takes to get them there. I didn’t want to put this story down, but when I had to, I was just itching to get back to it.


She was an exotic healer hiding from the dangers lurking in her past…
Nessa Pearson wanted nothing more than to disappear into the everyday life of her quiet mountainside village. When a friend’s urgent letter arrives, Nessa faces her fears and flies off to heal a sick child. But just when Nessa thinks she can lay her worries to rest, her safety vanishes in a cloud of smoke.
He was a pirate on a mission…
With his father at death’s door, Aridin Nightstar would do anything to save him–even use a magic lamp to kidnap a beautiful healer. With a few delays, he spirits Nessa back to his ship, just like he’d planned. What he hadn’t counted on was the white-skinned, blue-haired captive stealing his heart.
Can Nessa and Aridin overcome bandits, a bloodthirsty crew and Aridin’s greedy mother to follow the Savior’s plan?
