Harlan is a superstitious pirate, troubled by the sudden appearance of a naked woman on his ship. Not only is it bad luck, this mystery woman looks startlingly like his dead wife. The ship's doctor convinces him to take the woman on, disguising her as a boy.
Storms continue to plague the damaged ship, and the mutinous crew tries to leave it's captain to sink with the ship. Lesley and Harlan struggle through the trials and dangers of life in 1711, including releasing the spirit of Harlan's wife from a prison he has created with words spoken in ignorance. As they travel along the journey together, saving each other from the ravages and dangers, the electrical attraction that pulls them together creates a bigger problem for them. Thrown into the wrong time, how will they be able to survive - together?
This book was fast-paced, with obstacle after obstacle, including prejudices and overcoming ignorance. It was a fun ride that I read voraciously from beginning to end. The paranormal elements were intricately woven. I'd recommend this book.
Reading the paperback version, the line height was too small to accommodate letters with "tails" (making Dr. Gilroy appear to be Dr. Gilrov, etc.) There were also a couple of instances where quotation marks were replaced with "2013" in odd places. Typsetting issues with the publisher. Once I adapted to those oddities, I had no other "editorial" problems.
Step in to the pirate world in the year 1711 when pharmaceutical rep Lesley lands there after a motor vehicle accident. Lesley meets Captain Harlan Sterford of the Lyrical, a twenty-four gun frigate, and is forced to join his crew as a cabin boy. There are pirates, a witch, an inventive doctor, mayhem and murder.

This book is well written and takes you on a sometimes terrifying but wonder adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it. Happy reading.
As for me, I can’t wait for Penelope Marzec’s next pirate book.
