Redemption: The Abcynians, Book III
Her ship overtaken by pirates, Jocelyn Kincaid is rescued by Captain Don Adriano de Montoya. Initially afraid of the privateer sailors call El Fantasma, she discovers he is not the ghost some have portrayed him to be. He claims to be part of a mythical race—and her mate! Fascinated, she’s brokenhearted when he makes plans to sail her home to Boston.
Haunted by the memory of his murdered family, Adriano has sworn to ruin the man he holds responsible for their deaths. When he unexpectedly finds his mate aboard an enemy ship, he saves her life. Despite their unprecedented attraction, he keeps his distance until he learns a secret about Jocelyn that could potentially endanger her and Abcynian kind.
Determined to keep the woman he loves safe, his mission changes. But when she discovers the truth he’s guarding, will she forgive him, or set him on a path of destruction?
About the Author
My love for storytelling began when I created my first fictional characters, mischievous, identical twin brothers, in kindergarten. Years later, I started to write, completing my first handwritten manuscript when I was in middle school. I confess, the heroine was a cross between a contemporary Laura Ingalls Wilder and Nancy Drew, but when I wrote ‘the end’ I knew I had more stories to tell.
Of course, life intervened, but whether I was in high school, college, working a variety of jobs to pay for my degree in History and Secondary Education, I was always writing and reading romances. Finally, I joined RWA and the New England Chapter, becoming an author with Ellora’s Cave until the publisher closed its doors. Now, I am writing under my own name and loving every minute of it.
I truly enjoy hearing from readers. Please let me know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org

I love the rewrites that Ms Frances has done to this series. This is as far as I got with the original books. I am looking forward to the next one as it will be entirely new to me. Ms Frances, please get the rewrite done soon. I am waiting not so patiently.
