Publisher Comments:

The infamous pirate, riverboat seductress, master of disguise, and street-urchin-turned-sailor Jacky Faber has been captured by the French and beheaded in full view of her friends and crew.
and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Inconceivable? Yes! The truth is sheand#8217;s secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secretsand#151;all to save her dear friends. Then, in intrepid Jacky Faber style, she dons male clothing and worms her way into a post as galloper with the French army, ultimately leading a team of men to fight alongside the great Napoleon.

Synopsis:

The third Jacky Faber book, now in paperback

Synopsis:

Can the irrepressible Jacky Faber and her schoolmates put aside their differences and work together to avoid being sold on the auction block?

Synopsis:

While disguised as a boy, Jacky Faber experiences adventure and romance on the high seas.

Synopsis:

Jacky Faber a proper Boston lady? Not bloody likely!

Synopsis:

The intrepid Jacky Faber, having once again eluded British authorities, heads west, hoping that no one will recognize her in the wilds of America. There she tricks the tall-tale hero Mike Fink out of his flatboat, equips it as a floating casino-showboat, and heads south to New Orleans, battling murderous bandits, British soldiers, and other scoundrels along the way. Will Jacky's carelessness and impulsive actions ultimately cause her beloved Jaimy to be left in her wake?

Synopsis:

After being forced to leave HMS Dolphin and Jaimy, her true love, Jacky Faber is making a new start at the elite Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston. But growing up on the streets of London and fighting pirates never prepared Jacky for her toughest battle yet: learning how to be a fine lady.

Everything she does is wrong. Her embroidery is deplorable, her French is atrocious, and her table manners--disgusting! Then there's the small matter of her blue anchor tattoo. . . .

Despite her best efforts, Jacky can't seem to stay out of trouble long enough to dedicate herself to being ladylike. But what fun would that be, anyway?

Synopsis:

After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston—under dire circumstances, of course—Jacky Faber boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things dont go as planned, and soon Jacky is off on a wild misadventure at sea.

The Bloody Jack series is an amazing series, full of adventure, love, humor, and good times. Under the Jolly Roger is one of my favorites because the main character Jacky Faber is a pirate. She is sailing on the high seas, which she loves so dearly. This book has an exciting plot and pirate fun. this book also gets daring Jacky into alot of trouble, but she always gets out of it. a great read and so is the rest of the series.
