A pirate is haunting the coast of New Spain…
Emma Montego is sure she’s safe within Pensacola’s protected harbor even if she feels trapped in her role as a nobleman’s daughter. Her stern papa, Don Marcos, insists that she keeps a companion and stays in the courtyard. When a forbidden midnight walk along the shore goes awry, Emma must choose between respecting everything her birth father has done for her or making a deal with a devil in disguise.
Phillip Oakley has slipped in and out of Pensacola unnoticed for years until the alluring American-born daughter of Don Marcos crosses his path. If she recognizes him, his swashbuckling days as the infamous Captain Redbird are over, so only a deal will do. Phillip will do anything to protect his friends in the bayou and his crew aboard the Revenge, but Emma needs a way to escape being sent overseas to her father’s homeland.
Can Phillip make a deal with Emma that she’ll keep? Or will the little señorita ruin everything when she turns the tables with a new proposal that costs him everything—including his heart?
This novel is a stand-alone historical romance with echoes of North American history, the American Revolution, West Indies piracy, and Regency era charm.
