Steer this ship … or die!

Harry Glasby of Boston, a man with impeachable honor and big dreams, has earned a reputation as one of the best navigators off the northeast coast of the North American colonies. Only 21, he is already the sailing master of the merchant sloop Samuel.

But on July 13, 1720, Glasby’s world is capsized. The crew of Captain Bartholomew Roberts swarms over the gunwales of the sloop and takes another prize. At the point of a cutlass, Glasby and most of his shipmates are taken prisoner.
When Roberts, who has recently lost his navigator, learns that Glasby is a master of the art and craft, Harry’s fate is sealed. The most ruthless pirate captain of the day makes it clear: “You will steer my ship or you will die!”

As His Majesty’s Royal Navy declares war on piracy, Glasby, no longer on the side of the angels, is thrust into a life of bloody sea battles, plunder, and the precarious and dangerous fellowship of the pirate brotherhood. From the islands of the Caribbean to the disease infested coast of Africa, Glasby guides Roberts, the scourge of the Royal Navy, to countless victories and incalculable wealth.
Glasby is haunted by guilt and wracked with worry for Constance Sacker, his fiancée and the woman carrying his child. Intelligent and resourceful, Glasby must escape and return to Boston. But how does a prisoner of pirates find his way home?

In 1812, Elinor Pembroke wakes to find her bedchamber in flames—and extinguishes them with a thought. At 21, she is old to manifest magical talent, but the evidence is unmistakable: she not only has the ability to start fires, but the far more powerful ability to control and extinguish them. She is an Extraordinary, and the only one in England capable of wielding fire in over one hundred years.

As an Extraordinary, she is respected and feared, but to her father, she represents power and prestige for himself. Mr. Pembroke, having spent his life studying magic, is determined to control Elinor and her talent by forcing her to marry where he chooses, a marriage that will produce even more powerful offspring. Trapped between the choices of a loveless marriage or living penniless and dependent on her parents, Elinor takes a third path: she defies tradition and society to join the Royal Navy.

Assigned to serve under Captain Miles Ramsay aboard the frigate Athena, she turns her fiery talent on England’s enemies, French privateers and vicious pirates preying on English ships in the Caribbean. At first feared by her shipmates, a growing number of victories make her truly part of Athena’s crew and bring her joy in her fire. But as her power grows and changes in unexpected ways, Elinor’s ability to control it is challenged. She may have the power to destroy her enemies utterly—but could it be at the cost of her own life?

Lyn wants to move on. She just doesn't realize it will take pirates, shipwreck, and an intriguing surgeon to do it.

When Lyn sets off on her supposedly uncomplicated and unromantic cruise, she never dreams it will include pirates. All the 25-year-old Colorado high school teacher wants is to forget that her dead fiancé was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a vacation diversion; what fate provides is Braedon, an intriguing surgeon. She finds herself drawn to him: his gentle humor, his love of music, and even his willingness to let her take him down during morning karate practices. Against the backdrop of the ship’s make-believe world and its temporary friendships, her emotions come alive.

However, fear is an emotion, too. Unaware of the sensitive waters he navigates, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship--on the very anniversary Lyn came on the cruise to forget. But Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs off in a panic.

Things are bad enough when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise’s snorkeling excursions in American Samoa. However, paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped. Lyn’s fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their freedom and then against storms, sharks, and shipwreck.
