Summer of Deception
A wounded warrior . . . a woman searching for truth.
Rachel Ann York has no idea that love, adventure, and a shocking revelation await her in Charleston, South Carolina. What can be better than spending a summer taking care of a five-year-old girl on a working tea plantation? Most importantly, she wants to investigate her brother's Atlantic plane crash and death reported by the Charleston Drug Enforcement Administration.
She arrives at Barrett Hall and discovers a handsome new owner and widower back from the Middle East War,the child's father,who knows nothing about her job offer by his deceased uncle. He threatens to send her home.
Even with his eye patch, bitterness and distrust, Luke Barrett captures Rachel's heart until the night she finds evidence he is following in the footsteps of his pirate ancestor, Captain Bloodstone, but in smuggling the white gold, cocaine, which cost her brother's life during his Carolina coastal investigation.
Rachel finds her faith tested by deception, danger and love. Will Luke find his faith again--and a second chance at love?

In a Pirate's Debt
Jamaica & Charles Town, 1720
She flees a forced marriage and falls into the hands of a pirate.
Travay Allston flees her stepfather's estate and a man who has won her hand in marriage in a gambling payoff. After forcing her horse over a cliff into the Caribbean, she falls into the hands of privateer Captain Lucas "Bloodstone" Barrett who is a recent convert to Christianity.
Lucas is considering taking the King's pardon. Will he risk his life and heart to help Travay who has amnesia since her jump? He soon recognizes her as his tormenting childhood playmate. She always spelled trouble. Scars burn on his back remembering.
Getting her to safety can land him in a hangman's noose at low tide in Charles Town Harbor.
Repaying her debt to him will relegate her to a life worse than death. Can she depend on God to intervene?
Falling in love with a pirate, or his God, was never part of her plan. . . .
