“Capt’n. The lads…” The helmsman scratched at his sandy blond hair, uncomfortable with the coming reprimand as a friend might be. “They feel ya not fit ta be skipper. Pardon me fer sayin’ so, but ya acted selfish. Puttin’ us all at risk ’stead of leadin’ right and proper.”
Valeryn was not surprised. But hearing Willie say it stung. He nudged his anger aside. “We’re men of opportunity and vice,” he answered. “The devil be beside us and when we drink deep, he is in us. This is our way. I may make no apologies, but I take to mind my responsibility as your captain. Without exception, your willingness to maintain the title you bestowed upon me is yours alone.”
He paused. Aye, they were culpable for having him as their leader. He shook off the urge to place all the blame on them, again.
“Ain’t no other Rissa capt’n would’ve been so maudlin ta get arrested.”
The anger boiled to the surface. He would never compare to those before him. Ever. And he had never claimed to. Damn it! He hadn’t wanted this. He knew he’d fail. But admitting that to them was an act of weakness. And that he couldn’t stomach.
Valeryn gnashed his teeth. Though Willie was on the main deck below, the helmsman took a step back.
“I am not Fox, Tyburn, Drake, or Quint. I am Barone! Each of you would do well to remember that!”
The threat went unsaid. If the men knew anything of Valeryn, they knew him to be calculating and ruthless. ’Twould take a small push and hardly a reason for him to turn vicious. If dead men could tell tales, they would agree.
“In two month’s time, Rissa will sail again. Be certain of it. I will complete this arrangement and we will be free men as we were meant to be. Free to be the scourge and saviors of the Caribbean again.”
Some men offered crooked smiles and respectful nods, their loyalty with Valeryn still intact. Others wore pinched brows and unconvinced frowns. He had no idea how to get back into the reluctant crew’s good graces, nor was he sure he wanted to.
“Upon my return,” he continued with a fresh slice of ire, “cast me out should that be your will. Vote for who you find worthy to replace me. Until then, I am still your captain. I expect allegiance and obedience.” He swung out a cross arm. “What say you?”
Willie looked around him for a verdict. He spat a mouthful of brown saliva into his mug and nodded. “’Tis fair. If not for you, then for Rissa.”
’Twas a harsh truth coming from a friend.
National Bestselling Historical Romance Author Katherine Bone has been passionate about history since she had the opportunity to travel to various Army bases, castles, battlegrounds, and cathedrals as an Army brat turned Officer’s Wife. Who knew that an Army wife’s passion for romance novels would lead to pirates? Certainly not her rogue, whose Alma Mater’s adage is “Go Army. Beat Navy!” Now enjoying the best of both worlds, Katherine lives with her rogue in the south where she writes about rogues, rebels and rakes, aka pirates, spies, the Royal Navy, and duty, honor, and country and the happily ever afters every alpha male and lady deserve.
As an Army wife raising four children, romance helped Katherine weather loneliness. Now she hopes to pay it forward, to ease readers’ burdens by taking them on a swashbuckling, adventurous voyage into historical romance and beyond.
A Parrothead at heart, Chloe’s love for pirates began with Peter Pan and continued with Pirates of the Caribbean and ghost stories about pirates from the Outer Banks. She listens to Celtic music while she writes. When life gets too serious, she reads Calvin and Hobbes comics. She lives in Ohio with her tall, dark and handsome husband, three children and two rambunctious dogs, Indiana and Luke, who are named after her two favorite action heroes.
Descended from a family of cooks and gourmet chefs, Chloe is a true foodie and along with working for fortune 500 companies in marketing and teaching MBA students strategic marketing, she also ran a gourmet cookie company. Cooking for a crowd runs in the blood, so her fridge is always full. She deals with stress by baking pies (just ask her college roommates what it was like for them around exam time).
Her idea of a perfect day? Sailing on the Caribbean with her family, sun in her face and wind at her back, and finishing the day in the kitchen making a fab gourmet meal and sipping a glass of wine.
The Pirates & Petticoats Series is about spunky heroines and the scoundrels who love them.
Award-winning author Jennifer Bray-Weber is a proud native Texan. She is a married domestic goddess/beach bum with two beautiful daughters. Holding two degrees, one is Music and Video Business, the other in Liberal Arts, she has been able to express her creative thinking through countless questionable, often hilarious, life experiences.
Her interests include writing, reading, traveling (what she likes to call “research”), horseback riding, scrapbooking, shopping, relaxing at the beach, and dares.

USA Today bestselling, Amazon All-Star author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller, but it was a weeklong vacation to Bethany Beach, DE that forever changed her life. The little house her parents rented had a collection of books by Kathleen Woodiwiss, which exposed Barbara to the world of romance, and Shanna remains a personal favorite. Barbara writes heartfelt historical romances that feature flawed heroes who may know how to seduce a woman but know nothing of marriage. And she prefers feisty but smart heroines who sometimes save the hero, before they find their happily ever after. Barbara earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
First published in 1991, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Danelle Harmon has written sixteen books, with many distributed in various languages throughout the world. She and her family make their home in New England with a menagerie including four dogs, an Egyptian Arabian horse, and pet chickens.
USA Today Bestselling author Amanda Mariel dreams of days gone by when life moved at a slower pace. She enjoys taking pen to paper and exploring historical time periods through her imagination and the written word. When she is not writing she can be found reading, crocheting, traveling, practicing her photography skills, or spending time with her family.
Kamery is not the person who grew up dreaming of the day that she would clutch her very own novel to her chest, tears brimming over the rims of her eyes as she thought about how she’d written it herself, finally! In fact, anything remotely like that didn’t even happen until she was actually holding her first book in her hand, amazed that she’d written it and wondering how on Earth she’d managed to do it when it hadn’t ever occurred to her to write one until months before. Surprisingly, though, it was just what she never realized she loved doing.
When starting out in life, Kamery had (and still has) big dreams to perform on Broadway. She loves music and acting very much, while she and dance have a love/hate relationship; she would love to do it and every form of dance decides it hates that about her, haha! The one constant she always had between the performing world and the book world were the stories, tales that transported her to other worlds and made her feel like she really could do anything. Finally, she decided she wanted to do that for someone else and sat down to write.
It’s been a few years since she held that first book, realizing that she really liked writing and wanted to do more, but the love that blossomed in that moment has only grown. Currently, Kamery works from home in Arizona, while taking care of her two adorable kids, a girl and a boy, and talking her sweet husband Jake’s ear off about the insane amount of characters in her head who are ready to fight to the death for a chance at their own novels. It truly is a wonderful life!
