Hurricanes menace the Caribbean, and merchant ships hide in their home ports, hoping to ride out the storms. With no prey in sight, the pirates of Nassau turn on each other.
Pirate captain Scarlet plans to skip out on the violence and rendezvous with English Navy captain Robert Davenport, in a quest to end the trade in Irish slaves once and for all.
All that's standing in her way is a rapist, a murderer, and a merchant ship that's got it in for her. That and the problem of hiding her flaming red hair from the authorities as she sneaks into Jamaica. But nothing is going to stop Scarlet from doing everything in her power to save her people. Not even the lusty kisses of a man sworn to see her hang.
