    Summary

    A young English woman learns her long-dead father may be alive & involved in an ugly venture in the late 1700's conflict between European powers struggling for political and commercial dominance in the Americas. Accompanied by a handsome Spanish captain, who may be either her bodyguard or her jailer (and his very tall & rather violent companion), they search for the mysterious pirate who raised her and wind up rescuing a desperate young Middle Eastern man trying to save people from a cruel fate in the wilderness that is Colonial Florida.

    Inspired by (requires less research than "based on") a REAL incident in American History. (This stuff writes its RebelCaptain self.Google it!) Pirates, Storms, Rum, Religion, Philosophy, Ideals of the Enlightenment corrupted by greed and the lust for power, cross-dressing. Spain v England while Portugal gnashes its teeth in the background and the American Revolution gets put on simmer. More than you needed to know about Indigo production, actual bodice-ripping of actual bodices (where appropriate), swords, 18th cen. History is full of angst and pain (and so is my writing) but I am going to try to make this little less. Fantasy. Sexy fun where I can manage it but this is me.

    Summary

    Alys, a maidservant in 1430s England, dreams of learning to read and write. But the only person willing to teach her drives a hard bargain, and the errand she must perform in return draws her through a fantastical world of astrology and alchemy, into a female realm far beneath the earth.

    Mercuriouser and curiouser. If you've ever wondered what the feminine of 'mandrake' is, whether the way up is the way down, or how bulls feel about certain China-shop-related slanders, then read on ...
