Captain Mary, the Queen's Privateer
In an age ruled by iron men, in a world of new discovery and Spanish gold, a young Irishwoman named Mary rises from the ashes of her broken childhood with ships and men-at-arms under her command. She and her loyal crew prowl the Caribbean and prosper in the New World for a time until the ugly past Mary has fled from in the old one finds her. The Butcher's Daughter: Across the great ocean to the east, war is coming. The King of Spain is assembling the most powerful armada the world has ever seen - an enormous beast - to invade England and depose the “heretic” Protestant queen. To have any chance against the wealth and might of Spain, England will need every warship, she will need every able captain. To this purpose, Queen Elizabeth spares Mary from the headman’s axe for past sins in exchange for her loyalty, her ships and fighting men. Based on true historical events, this is an epic story about war, adventure, love and betrayal told in two books: The Butcher’s Daughter and Blood for Blood. This is a timeless story about vengeance. This is a tale of heartbreak…
Captain Luke Ryan, Privateer, Irish Swashbuckler, American Hero
You’ve probably never heard of Luke Ryan. You probably didn’t know that Benjamin Franklin had his own private navy during American War of Independence and yet Ryan - Franklin’s most dangerous privateer - did more damage to British shipping than any other commander, including the great John Paul Jones. This is an extraordinary, little-known story of selfless heroism, love, intrigue and betrayal. It is a bold story about bold men, about rough Irish mariners who in the beginning of their adventure sail for money but later find themselves fighting for a new nation’s struggle for liberty, becoming true American patriots along the way. The story is told in three books: Gather the Shadowmen, Prince of the Atlantic, and Napoleon's Gold.
