Branded Ann is a ruthless, cold-blooded pirate who is feared even by her own crew. Violet is a widow, made so by Branded Ann who brutally attacked the ship she was on and killed her husband, who clutches her Bible and quotes scripture prolifically.
Neither woman is quite what she seems and their destinies are entwined as they meet and conquer obstacles to their growing attraction.
The story is fast paced with deceit, betrayal, loyalty, and lust all adding to the potent mix that keeps the reader engrossed. The tension between the characters, sexual and otherwise, makes for a gripping read and this is a book that should appeal outside the genre of lesbian fiction.
The ending may be predictable, but the journey there certainly is not.
