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.
