Here it is then! And once I’ve got the obligatory promotion posts done I can get back to normal 🙂
On A Lee Shore
Published 14th December, 2012 from Etopia Press
“Give me a reason to let you live…”
Beached after losing his ship and crew, and with England finally at peace, Lt Christopher Penrose will take whatever work he can get. A valet? Why not? Escorting an elderly diplomat to the Leeward Islands seems like an easy job, but when their ship is boarded by pirates, Kit’s world is turned upside down. Forced aboard the pirate ship, Kit finds himself juggling his honor with his desire to stay alive among the crew, not to mention the alarming—yet enticing—captain, known as Le Griffe.
Kit has always obeyed the rules, but as the pirates plunder their way across the Caribbean, he finds much to admire in their freedom. He deplores their lawlessness but is drawn to their way of life, and begins to think he might just have found a purpose. Dare he dream of finding love too? Or would loving a pirate take him too far down the road to ruin?
Today I am visiting Charlie Cochrane – famous for her Cambridge Fellows Mysteries and her wicked way with a limerick, where I am telling the sad but true story of Captain Bartholomew Roberts and his doomed love affair with a ship’s doctor.
Tomorrow – I’ll be elsewhere.
That was me trying to be mysterious. 🙂
