About The Cutlass Swoon: A New World Romance
Strange Lovers In Dangerous Times, Or Dangerous Lovers In Strange Times? Only Time Will Tell…
David Holloway is an Ensign on a British galleon with a secret: he’s had enough of the legitimate way of doing things. His master plan? To break bad and join up with a pirate crew. Slicing and dicing and blasting his way into the graces of a cursed Captain Starling, David’s hidden double life in a European mysticism club comes crashing into full view of his crew right around the time he meets the love of his life, the enigmatic Heather Mercado. Before the pair can enjoy their newfound company, betrayal leaves them high and dry, desperate for a crew and a ship and… pretty much everything piratey.
Everything, that is, except for a magical cutlass made of pure ruby.
When he’s not flapping silvern tongue at prospective crew or tangling the regular kind with Heather, David’s skill as a magician emerges. He might have already mastered combat and the mystical arts, but his ability as a leader and a lover will be tested beyond the bounds of reason. As the lines between the real world and David’s spiritual realm blur and disappear, angels and demons and voodoo spirits take centre stage. Can David come to terms with his own past in time to put an end to Captain Starling’s reign of terror? And is it even his job?
Maybe he’ll find out… as long as he brings enough hot chocolate.
