From the Author
When these two characters made their appearance in The Devil's Luck
, the playful energy in their one, brief scene together was so satisfying and fun for me that I knew I'd need to give them some page time and tell their whole story. How did the silent, sullen Brigit we meet at the beginning of The Devil's Luck
end up saucy and grinning down in the ship's galley a few chapters later? What brings a woman like her and a man like John Bone together?
I'm also really in love with these characters because they're regular, salt-of-the-earth types (as I imagine myself to be). So many stories are about people so strikingly handsome their mirrors are weeping with admiration. They tell the tales of people in the highest positions of power: kings, countesses, billionaires, celebrities. Yet love is just as grand and earth-moving for a maid and a cook as it is for any of the privileged few. The joy is just as potent and nourishing to the soul.
Plus, it was fun to get out of the captain's stateroom and head below decks for a while, where all the swearing and peg legs are. That's where my people hang out. I had a great time with them in this story. I hope you do, too.
About the Author
Eris writes subversive romance for people who hate romance novels. She writes fiction in whatever genre suits the tale that needs telling: historical, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, or anything that bends a little askew from expectations. Her stories are the stomping grounds for bada** heroines, untamable alphas, a spectrum of sexuality and a serious disregard for convention. Sometimes light and humorous, often dark and intense, if you’re looking for a break from reality, Eris writes for you. When she’s not staying up until the wee hours writing, Eris also likes to read, annoy her cats and husband, and obsess about writing some more.
