When confronted with a forced marriage, Travay Allston flees her stepfather’s Jamaican plantation and dives into the sea. Death would be preferable to life with Sir Roger Poole, a drinking, gambling, scoundrel whose advances make her skin crawl.
Lucas Barrett sails the high seas as the dreaded Captain Bloodstone. He is on a quest to find his mother, a woman last seen clapped in irons by the Spanish. As his ship slips past Jamaica, he spies a young woman plunge into the sea. A prize of such beauty must be saved and Lucas dives in to rescue her. The last thing Lucas needs is to get involved with Travay, a childhood friend who caused him nothing but trouble. Especially now that she’s become a stubborn, alluring, young woman.
Lucas delivers Travay to her aunt in Charles Town and washes his hands of the affair. Or so he thinks. But when Sir Roger shows up demanding that Travay marry him or face the wrath of Charles Town’s newest council member, Lucas feels that familiar boyhood tug on his heart. Will this wanted pirate of the crown, risk his life to save Travay a second time? Betrothed to a man she hates, will Travay repay her debt to a pirate by marrying Sir Roger in exchange for his promise to pardon Lucas? And if she does, will the rascal keep his word? Falling in love with the pirate was never part of her plan.

Here's my review of this enjoyable book!
Looking for adventure, romance, pirates? Go no further. In a Pirate’s Debt is one of the most adventurous books I’ve read in quite some time. It starts off with a bang and then continues to explode with one exciting scene after another. From the Caribbean to Charleston to the Atlantic and then back again, there are storms, battles, intrigue, and plenty of romance. Throw in some great characters and a nasty villain, and this is a book that will keep you entertained until the end. In addition, In a Pirate’s Debt is a refreshingly clean read with a strong Christian message that will remain with you long after you turn the last page.
