1764 ~ When Faryn is captured by the mysterious and sensual dread pirate Captain Wraith Noir, who delivers her as a slave to the flesh-hungry court of the pirate queen, she expects her future will be bleak and death imminent. Lucky for Faryn, Wraith offers a different destiny—he wants her for his own.
Duty, desire, passion, revenge and treachery besiege Faryn and Wraith. With the future uncertain, only fate, love and the truth will set them both free.
A little swashbuckling, a little intrigue, and a whole lot of hot, hot sex. . . what more can you ask to be packed into one short story?
Starting like a typical historical swashbuckler, Faryn has been captured and is being sold into slavery. The plot turns as she is sold to the queen who uses her new acquisitions as sex slaves. Faryn’s first encounter sets the captain’s mind to have her for himself.
The sexual encounters between Faryn and Noir steam up the pages. It is a pleasant surprise that the encounters which could have been forced, turn out to be consentual and enjoyed by both. Issues of trust increase the sparks between them, and eventually bring about resolution to several familial issues.
The “happily ever after” ending seems to tie everything up in a nice neat bow, but does not detract from what is a nice spicy bit of erotica.
This sea fairin’ tidbit is well worth downloading on to your e-reader. Enjoy it the next time you need to release your inner pirate
