Within A Captain's Soul

Within A Captain's Soul
Olech, Lisa A.

"After years of committed service, Captain William 'Bump' Quinn has finally taken the helm of the pirate ship Scarlet Night. But when rough waters send the Night off course, William winds up shipwrecked and alone on enemy shores -- and prisoner to China's most powerful pirate queen. Captain Jian Jun is as alluring as she is formidable, and she's careful not to let anyone too close. But the silence of the handsome Jamaican pirate in her custody intrigues her. Tempted by his topaz eyes and the strength of his character, she allows the captive into her inner sanctum. Thought their bond defies all convention, Jun finds she is powerless against the emotions Will stirs in her. She prays their first union will not be her last. But with danger lurking in unexpected places, her beloved pirate may soon get the chance to prove he is every inch the hero he seems in her arms..."--Back cover.

But walking side-by-side with Acair brings a terrible revelation about the magic she needs, and what its price will exact from her soul.
