    Summary

    A young English woman learns her long-dead father may be alive & involved in an ugly venture in the late 1700's conflict between European powers struggling for political and commercial dominance in the Americas. Accompanied by a handsome Spanish captain, who may be either her bodyguard or her jailer (and his very tall & rather violent companion), they search for the mysterious pirate who raised her and wind up rescuing a desperate young Middle Eastern man trying to save people from a cruel fate in the wilderness that is Colonial Florida.

    Inspired by (requires less research than "based on") a REAL incident in American History. (This stuff writes its RebelCaptain self.Google it!) Pirates, Storms, Rum, Religion, Philosophy, Ideals of the Enlightenment corrupted by greed and the lust for power, cross-dressing. Spain v England while Portugal gnashes its teeth in the background and the American Revolution gets put on simmer. More than you needed to know about Indigo production, actual bodice-ripping of actual bodices (where appropriate), swords, 18th cen. History is full of angst and pain (and so is my writing) but I am going to try to make this little less. Fantasy. Sexy fun where I can manage it but this is me.

    Summary

    Marcus was there when Sherlock gave Joan the ring. There being Grand Central Station, at six in the morning, Joan’s shirt improperly buttoned and murder in her eyes. She slid it onto her finger with a poorly disguised yawn, and muttered, “Til death do us part,” with the heavy resignation that it usually took Sherlock about ten minutes to inspire in people.
