“In a tavern just off the docks of the small port village of Oaksbridge, Orrin Walsh sipped his ale at a corner table.”
Orrin Walsh has been hired to seek out and capture the elusive pirate, Aeron Lynch, by Queen Winifred. Even though Orrin has a sneaky suspicion that the Queen’s intentions are not on the up and up, he still accepts the challenge because secretly he has made it his goal to find the sea witch for his own vengeance. Orrin and his brother, Kale, have been hunting pirates since their village was attacked and their mother and sisters were murdered by a particularly malicious band of pirates.
Once Orrin discovers where Aeron is hiding he finds that she isn’t anything like what pirates are suppose to be. For starters it seems she is saving people not destroying them. Once he finds out Aeron’s secret and why the Queen wants her back, he vows to help Aeron and her crew to take Queen Winifred down.
Lots of adventure loaded into this swash-buckling read. Aeron holds her own and is highly respected by her crew and village. Her attraction to Orrin has been ongoing since their first meeting many years before so when the meet up again they are able to capitalize on their magnetism. Orrin’s brother even finds a surprise on the island for himself. Queen Winifred’s character is one nasty witch who abuses girls. Definitely for the adult readers of historical romance.
