The Angel and the Rogue
About the Book
Captain Black is capturing and sinking Spanish galleons. While collecting ransom for Maria, a nobleman’s daughter, he is troubled by her identical looks to the tavern beauty, Gwendalynn Taylor, whom he promised a return. The queen fears that Black’s actions threaten diplomacy with Spain, and orders his capture.
On a revelational awakening with Maria, Black realizes he must return to Gwendalynn. He’s disappointed on finding out she has left England. Luckily, he meets with Drake who has rescued Gwendalynn from a sinking ship. Confessing to Drake she is Black’s betrothed, he delivers her to Black where he joins Drake on destroying the ships at Cadiz.
Leaving Cadiz, his fleet is scattered in a storm. He’s captured by Maria’s father, and Gwendalynn is taken hostage. Black must now escape Del Rosa’s ship, rescue his love, and win the queen’s pardon.
