Ivory Shepard didn’t want to be a pirate when she grew up but she didn’t plan on being orphaned and alone at thirteen with her three cousins either.
After a Spanish raid in Charles Towne left them with nothing, Ivory held her cousins together, trained them to fight for their lives and led them to a life of quiet refuge on the banks of the Ashley River. Out of reach of the hands of unscrupulous men, they found life on the farm a tolerable substitute for the traditional alternatives life would force onto them—until the night the pirates showed up.
Setting foot on that first pirate ship was nothing compared to the life of freedom and adventure awaiting them, once Ivory and the girls were through playing nice. Only one man believes he can stop her and he won’t need a ship full of guns to do it.
If it were only that easy…
I give it 5 stars out of 5.
Not only you would encounter the daggers, cutlass fights, treasures, ships, but also encounter the pirate, and not any pirate, but the only one- Razor, a she-pirate, who holds more that a hidden treasure and mates’ lives in her hand, she holds the most precious treasure on sea and land- love. With her cousins on her side, there is nothing to stop them or is there…?
Dip into the adventure of sea life, pirate greed and love chase. Will she be sold to hang the gallows, after the bounty on her head? Or will she escape to be trapped again into the hands of love?
Where she will find her end? Or peace? Or….?
Read it to find out.
PS. Proceed with caution: the book is filled with lots of descriptive scenes, and smooth reading. Beautiful story to the last page.
