Rapture of the Deep: Being an Account of the Further Adventures of Jacky Faber, Soldier, Sailor, Mermaid, Spy by L.A, Meyer

Mere hours from marrying her beloved Jaimy,  Jacky is taken by British Intelligence and given a mission to dive for sunken treasure off of the Florida Keys. 

Jacky is sent a mission looking for sunken Spanish gold and she runs into a whole lot of trouble along the way (of course).  Between a serious a** of a Spanish lieutenant and an old pirate friend, Jacky has her work cut out for her.  I really hated Lieutenant Cisnero.  He was so horrible to Jacky and with very little provocation.  I was glad to see a good-looking guy who was hateful remain that way though.  Very often with Jacky, she makes all these guys fall in love with her and do her bidding.  So it was nice to see her charms next work quite right.  Though what is up with every guy she meets wanting to have sex with her?  Seriously.  I mean, she is suppose to be pretty but I can't really believe that.  And why is she almost raped in almost every book?  Maybe it is suppose to be a reflection of the time period and the situations she is in.  I'm not sure, but it's getting a little old.  As is the fact that she has become the "everything but girl" and is still holding out to give her virginity to Jaimy.  I mean good for her but they need to get in on at some point or another.  I know that sounds terrible, but she is always making out and doing other stuff with other guys and poor Jaimy is held to different moral code or something.

At the end of this book there was a discussion between author L.A. Meyer and narrator Katharine Kellgren that was very interesting.. It was cool to hear about both the writing process and how Kellgren prepares for a Bloody Jack book.  I also like hearing how the audio books effected the writing process.  And also Meyer mentions that the last book has been written so it was a relief to know that there was going to be an ending at some point.  Not that I want it to end soon, but it was nice to hear.
