Nor Gold: The Pirate Captain

 

"Nor Gold" picks up where "The Pirate Captain" left off: Cate Mackenzie, a woman who lost everything to the Jacobite Uprising, trying to make sense out of being sold to Thomas, Nathanael Blackthorne's pirate friend. Once again, Fate has robbed her of both her heart and her home.

As Nathan sails off, Cate tries to come to terms with her new situation. Practicality tells her Thomas is not an altogether poor future: he's amiable, generous, and most of all, willing... but her heart is still with Nathan.

Nathan, in the meantime, has but two quests: to get Cate back, and to claim his revenge against Lord Breaston Creswicke and the Royal West Indies Mercantile Company. In that process, he discovers there is no outrunning his past and that there are consequences for every action.

The Caribbean Sea isn't big enough for Nathan, Thomas and Creswicke. Paths cross... and sparks fly.

The Fortune

 

A deal with the devil... Jack Mallory has vowed to abandon his nefarious seafaring life to be with the woman he loves, but his final act of piracy leaves him facing the noose. His one chance at freedom: a deal with an old enemy, Ezra Archer, a wealthy Charles Town planter. Archer has his sights set on increasing his lands and securing a seat on the Carolina Assembly—and he will destroy anyone in his way. At first, Jack's pact with the ruthless planter seems benign—sail to Virginia to fetch Archer's niece. Yet soon he discovers Archer's plans for the girl are anything but honorable and could endanger his own future, a future that seems increasingly bleak when faced with Archer's next, murderous task. With time running out and innocent lives hanging in the balance, Jack must find a way to break his deal with the devil or forever forfeit the honest life he had hoped to reclaim for himself and his family.

Captain James Hook and the Siege of Neverland

 

...straight on till morning.
Captain James Hook set his sights on Peter Pan, chasing the boy to the ends of the Earth and beyond.
But Neverland is the hell no one thought it would be.
Suns rise and set at all hours. Bursts of snowfall punctuate blistering tropical heat without warning.
Yet among the knights, fairies, indians, mermaids, beasts, and savage children who fight and die here, a more dangerous predator stalks men in this world without order, one that cannot be fought with sword or hook.
A predator called the Forgetting.
How much of himself is Hook willing to lose to gain his revenge?

A Pirate's Tale: The Sea Fox

1678

Sailing into London's busy harbor in the autumn of 1678, Jon Norsturm was unaware of the city's uproar over the Papist Plot, the alleged scheme of the Pope to have the King murdered and turn Protestant England Catholic.

He could not foresee events arising from the turmoil that would tear him from his home and all he loved, brand him a fugitive, and force him into service as a seaman aboard a ship owned by the rich and ruthless Edmund Stanton. He could not foresee leading a mutiny, taking refuge on the pirate island of Tortuga, and becoming one of the boldest pirate captains of the Caribbean. And he could not foresee sailing at the bidding of Henry Morgan, among the worst pirates of all, in desperate hope of clearing his name and starting his life anew.

But of all that was to happen, he could never have foreseen falling in love with the beautiful and fiery Kath Ellis, who was Stanton's greatest desire and whose world, like Jon's, would be changed forever.

Lantern Jack: The Adventure Begins

 

A rip roaring pirate yarn about an ordinary fishing village lad from Cornwall who was press ganged into the Navy at an early age. He then went on to be one, if not the richest, pirates ever to survive into old age. He was a thinking man's pirate or if you wish, crafty.

This tale does not rely on historical fact and is not filled with technical jargon about sailing ships. It is a back to basics good old fashion adventure story that bubbles along with action all the way.

Being a pirate novel this book does contain some moderate violence.

This is the first book in a series of five that charts out the incredible journey of Lantern Jack, navigator extraordinaire.
