The Reckless Release day Celebration!

(My normal Friday's Mad Mad World will be posted tomorrow on Saturday!)

Hi everyone, I'm very excited to announce that the next addition to my Legacy of the King's Pirates series, The Reckless, is finally here!  Although this is volume 6, you don't have to read the first 5 books to enjoy this one. However if you do enjoy this one, you might want to go back and check out the others. The Redemption is the first book in the series and the Ebook is only 99 cents!

 In honor of this momentous occasion, I'm giving away three signed paperbacks!

The Reckless
She wanted to live forever young
He wanted to preach the Gospel to the poor

Together they face mutinies, deserted islands, battles, and villains as they sail on a tsunami of adventure throughout the Caribbean in search of the Fountain of Youth!

Captain Reena Charlisse Hyde always gets what she wants. She wanted to be the best female pirate on the Caribbean and she is. She wants to find the mythical Fountain of Youth and she knows the location of the map. And now after searching across the Caribbean for the man she intends to marry, she has found him. There are only two problems. He doesn't want to be found, and he's on board a Royal Navy frigate—the last place a pirate should venture.

Frederick Carlton thought he was finally safe from the woman who held his heart. But her attempt to rescue him labels him a deserter from the Royal Navy. He’s turned his life over to God and plans on being a preacher, but every moment he spends with Reena drives him deeper into a past he longs to forget.

Mutinies, deserted islands, treasure maps, battles, traitors, and villains send the couple sailing on a tsunami of adventure throughout the Caribbean in search of the Fountain of Youth. Frederick longs to escape the lure of the woman he loves. Reena longs for Frederick to love her again. But in the end, they will both have to choose between eternal youth or the lives of everyone they love.

The Hero
Frederick Carlton

Frederick is the son of Captain Kent Carlton, an infamous and once-evil pirate who plagued the Caribbean. Born out of a violent act and illegitimacy, Frederick battles self-worth and the ability to do anything good with his life. Pirate blood flows strong in his veins, and he spent several years adhering its call with his lady love, Reena Hyde, by his side. Together they raided ships, acquired treasure, battled enemies, and loved each other immensely. But God's call on Frederick's life to preach the Gospel finally overcame the lure of sin, and Frederick left the life of a pirate, rededicated his life to God, and ran as far away from Reena as he could.

The Heroine
Reena Charlisse Hyde

Captain Reena Charlisse Hyde will never give up on finding her one true love, Freddy. Even when the stubborn man has been hiding from her for over a year in the Caribbean. In truth, she intends to marry him, and she knows, despite his current disposition, he feels the same way. How could he not after the years of love and adventure they'd spend together pirating the seas!  As soon as she found him and they were together again, he'd give up his fool notion to become a preacher! Bah! What fun is there in a life of poverty and servitude? She'd seen her parents suffer all their lives under the strict hand of God. Nay, Freddy would see reason. Especially since she knew exactly where they could find the one and only map to the Fountain of Youth! Then they could sail these seas from one adventure to another, loving each other forever!


"Wow! What an exciting ride!... Once again author MaryLu Tyndall delivers a swashbuckling tale with plenty of intrigue and a heart-warming romance to boot!

  23. I receive your newsletter and love it!
    I've read all the books in this series and so looking forward to reading The Reckless!
    What an intriguing storyline; Reena raised by parents of faith and rebels against that faith while the man she loves has forsaken his sin-filled life and her for faith in and surrender to God. Sounds as though God is surrounding her with a message to return to faith in Him!
    I'm quite interested to read what choices on Reena's road (or shall I write ship) present to her as she sails and what she chooses.
    Ultimately we are all presented with intersections of choices on our life road:toward Him or away.

  24. Sounds like another fun pirate tale! I can’t wait to read how Reena will overcome her desire to be rich to be with Kent or how Kent will act as preacher! I receive your blog newsletter and love to hear how God is working in your life and across the world!

  25. Already subscribed.
    The Reckless sounds great! Love the cover. Congratulations and thanks for the chance.

  27. I’m am such a huge fan!!! I have everyone of your books and I buy each new one that comes out on ebooks and hardbacks. You are my favorite author! You never dissapoint with the adventures and God thrilling moments I experience when I read one of your books. I hate waiting for new ones to come out because I read them in less than a day and then have to wait months for the next one. Lol but every time it seems to be worth the wait. Thanks for making me fall in love with reading again. And also for teaching us about God’s ever ending love. ~YOUR BIGGEST FAN
    (Prayers for new ideas and books)
