Pirates Of The Eastern Shore, #1

by Morgan Malone

Product Description:

Hundreds of years ago, off the coast of the newly created United States of America, pirates still prowled the waters of the Atlantic. Though the Golden Age of piracy was waning, there was yet one ship that struck fear into the hearts of merchants and navies: Satan's Mermaid. Her captain, The Hawk, was hated by the British, admired by his crew and loved by almost every lady he encountered. Except one. Rouge, the mystical pirate captain of the Crimson Lion, eluded his control, fought him for treasure and, if legend has it true, led him to his death in the cold waters off the coast of Maine.

Henry Carl Sherwin, Doctor of Marine Geology, has been searching for The Hawk's lost treasure for decades. His search has cost him almost everything, including the love of his life. Now, Hank's sure his dream is within his grasp as he uses recently discovered journals and maps to locate a shipwreck near the last siting of Satan's Mermaid. All he needs to do is to convince the best Oceanographic Archaeologist in the world to help him unravel the mystery surrounding the only proof he has that the sunken ship was captained by The Hawk.

Dr. Victoria Davies Rand, has fought for her place as the world's foremost expert on Colonial America Marine Archaeology. Vicke's paid a high price for the respect of her colleagues: the loss of her husband, Hank. Then he arrives on her doorstep in the midst of a howling storm and turns her well-ordered life upside down with what he claims is proof that The Hawk and Rouge were together when they met their fiery deaths in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Drawn by the promise of wealth and fame, respect and vindication, Vicke and Hank join together to solve the mystery of Satan's Mermaid and the Crimson Lion. It's their greatest adventure and the treasure they discover may be worth more than gold.

Treasure is the contemporary romance prologue to Morgan Malone's three volume historical romance series: The Pirates of the Eastern Shore.
