About the book:
A former privateer and a desperate heiress join forces to find a treasure.
Jump on board with a brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
Pasts collide in New Orleans when a treasure goes missing.
The last time New Orleans attorney Jean-Luc Valmont saw Maribel Cordoba, a Spanish nobleman’s daughter, she was an eleven-year-old orphan perched in the riggings of his privateering vessel proving herself as the best lookout on his crew. Until the day his infamy caught up with them all and innocent lives were lost. Unsure why he survived but vowing to make something of the chance he was given, Jean-Luc has buried his past life so deep that no living person will ever find it—until a very much alive and very grown up Maribel Cordoba arrives on his doorstep and threatens all he now holds dear.
This is an exciting historical romance!
I adore Maribel! She is delightful and so fun to keep up with. As a bookworm myself I immediately connected with her love of reading.
Jean-Luc seems to be hiding something from the very beginning. It was quite entertaining to follow through the story and figure out what it was and all the twists to this wonderful character.
This book is packed with a lot of action and adventure. I wasn’t at all surprised by that though given the title. Then there were a few really great surprises that caught me completely off guard. It was fun learning what the difference was between pirates and privateers.
I absolutely loved this second installment in the series. I have to give it a 5 star rating. I am definitely highly recommending it. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens the next time I look in on the Lytton family descendants.
