We’ve got pirates, um – I mean privateers, pirate treasure, hot sexing, early Florida, lots of insects and a great match up of hero and heroine. Yep, well worth the wait....A fantastically matched couple, fun and adventure, seeing Captain Sinister again = a happy Jayne when I electronically flipped the last page."--Dear Author Reviews
