Nothing is ever dull in the Kraken's Caribbean, at least not for very long. Emily is settling into life with her new husband in this strange new world when things heat up again! A zeppelin sighting opens the door into another realm and unlocks the gate to Captain Jezebel's past, barricaded for decades.
The denizens of Tortuga must band together to save their world from an invasion that threatens to destroy everything they hold dear and when Jezebel disappears, Emily and the motley crew of the Cursed Quill risk everything to travel to a world where greed is king and lives chattel for the Directors and their pet scientists.
Jezebel is thrust back into the horror of her childhood, and the carefully constructed walls protecting her mind crumble. Her life in the Caribbean, her relationship with Mick...her very sanity, hang in the balance. Novan has come for their lost daughter and all her stolen inventions. What can a 17th century pirate ship do against a military airship? Even with the great Albino Kraken at their side?
"A highly imaginative combo of paranormal, steampunk, fantasy, adventure, romance, and best of all--pirates! Maureen O. Betita serves up an innovative romantic adventure featuring a motley crew of pirates, deadly adversaries, courage and romance, and goggles with some very special powers. Settle in for a good night's read!" ~ Jennifer Ashley, NY Times Bestselling author of Wild Cat
