In this fast-paced, passionate tale of love, high stakes, and adventure set in the summer of 1805, Maeve Merrick, the notorious Pirate Queen of the Caribbean, cruises the seas in her beautiful schooner Kestrel with her band of women warriors. Burned by the treachery of men and nursing a painful betrayal from her past, Maeve wants for nothing . . . but when the sea delivers a handsome castaway to her remote island, the fierce and fiery she-wolf finds that her own heart has become a pirate’s plunder. But all is not as it appears, and her prisoner has a dangerous secret all his own — a dangerous secret that could change the fate of nations. An award-winning release from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the de Montforte series!
