Overview

(Award-winning Novel) Although Lianna Whitney was gently bred, she must now empty slop buckets and fight off randy sailors in a seaport tavern to survive. One night, she unexpectedly comes into possession of a golden medallion. But when the man who left it with her is immediately murdered by soldiers of the Royal Navy, she’s afraid to admit she has it. Unsure who to trust, she’s caught up in crossfire between navy officers and a pirate captain, who, realizing she possesses the object he’s been paid to find, whisks her away to his ship during the fight.

Privateer Captain Zane Fox is not interested in the mystical healing powers the medallion is said to hold, even though the legends claim it can bring a dying man back to life. He only plans to procure the medallion, drop the chit off at the next port where she’ll be safe, and collect the money he was promised. However, as they fend off storms at sea and attempt to outrun the Royal Navy, the two are also fighting the attraction they feel for one another. But when they are captured, Zane must choose between recovering the medallion and saving Lianna from the noose. And soon it becomes clear to him that the medallion is not the only treasure worth risking his life for.

    A story that sears right through to the core...

    Ms Weber effortlessly transports us to another place and time where the world she's created literally materializes around us with visceral exquisiteness. Though it's a historical, the characters, Lianna Whitney and Zane Fox, have that unique contemporary feel any reader will relate to - characters whose lives are flawed, but who possess endearing qualities and strengths that surpass the ordinary. Lianna and Zane both came from troubled pasts. But Lianna, strong and brazen, makes no excuses nor begs understanding. Raised by a single mother who was the humble servant of an elite family, Lianna quickly blossomed into a young woman of privilege, grace, and beauty. But when her home is destroyed and her mother killed, she's forced into a life of harsh servitude where faded dreams give way to a new and dismal promise of hunger, abuse, and lost innocence. Never, she ultimately swears, will she allow that scourge of mankind to ever violate her again - body or soul. Like Lianna, Zane's life was also shaped by a tragic youth. Abducted from his home as a child and sold into slavery aboard a merchant ship, he suffered his own horrors of starvation and brutal beatings. Barely a man, his mind and body had become hardened by fierce battles aboard war ships, the rewards of which reaped solely by those he was forced to serve. Ultimately feared and respected by friend and enemy alike for his fighting prowess, he'd taken by mutiny, his first command of the Caribbean's most formidable warship - the 'Rissa' - unfortunate for its reigning captain to underestimate Zane's peerless artistry with all weapons of war. Both Lianna and Zane's lives were forged from life's cruelties, their hearts fortressed against the vulnerabilities of love and trust. But worlds collide when Lianna is assaulted by a dangerous thief desperate to rid himself of a gold medallion - an ancient artifact believed to have mysterious healing powers. When the thief is murdered by Commodore Bennington - a man neither loyal to country nor King - she discovers she is next on his list of treacherous thieves to be mercilessly hung for no apparent crime. But she never imagined her twist of fate when rescued by a pirate whose chiseled features and predatory blue eyes left her seared right through to her core. Immobilized by Zane's deep voice with its rich timbre, Lianna fears she's discovered the only man who might breach her fortressed soul. And while the extent of Zane's interest is the king's ransom the medallion might bring, he never anticipated the woman he'd taken prisoner for her own protection, might, in turn, imprison his heart. When both discover passion in the midst of treachery, deadly sea battles, and a desperate race across the Caribbean that culminates in the climatic sacrifice of one life for another, the reader is left wondering - Was it the mystical healing power of an ancient artifact, or the miracle of love that leaves one wishing the story might continue on forever? BLOOD AND TREASURE is a wonderfully crafted work. Powerful love scenes, vibrant prose, and the pleasurable company of characters, superbly sketched, make this novel a worthy five-star read. Author Jennifer Bray-Weber leaves you with the emotional sense that you've experienced rather than read a story. A true joy to discover a new writer whose gift of storytelling offers the reader a most pleasurable escape. ~John Graceson

    Adventure Is About To Set Sail!- A Fun Read

    Ms. Bray-Weber has successfully launched a helluva ride! This book had me turning the pages as fast as I could. The adventure starts with the first sentence and doesn't let go until you reach the back cover. Mix that in with a tempestuous romance between two head-strong, complicated characters and you've got yourself a great book to escape with from the real world. Her sense of timing and flair for passion gives this writer an edge over other historical writers that I've read. Hang on because this is MOST definitely not your grandmother's romance!

    What an Adventure!!

    I was hooked from the first page. This action-filled pirate romance was face-paced, which was a good thing since I couldn't put the book down. Both Lianna and Zane quickly worked their way into my heart and I absolutely loved the intricacies of the story--I love romance characters with dark pasts who find the light in each other! I can't wait for the next installment from Ms. Bray-weber!
