Read full description of the books The Pirate Captain: Chronicles of a Legend:The Pirate Captain, Chronicles of a Legend, "Nor Silver" is a historical action/adventure saga with a twisted love story and answers the question of what would one man do to "Keep his Treasure"!
Having lost hearth and heart to the Stuart Uprising, CATE MACKENZIE, a fugitive war criminal, purchases passage on a ship bound for the West Indies. En route she is kidnapped-a case of mistaken identity-by CAPTAIN NATHANAEL BLACKTHORNE, the pirate captain. Accustomed to blood, musket and cannon, life aboard the pirate ship isn't the hell Cate expects. She is instantly drawn into Nathan's bloody rivalry against LORD BREASTON CRESWICKE-the man who forced Nathan into piracy-and COMMODORE ROGER HARTE, Creswicke's puppet. They are an "unholy alliance" of ambition and power, Nathan a rat terrier on their heels. The impending arrival of Creswicke's fiance is too much temptation. This is a story of two scarred people, blinded by their defenses. It's the story of trust, or rather, the lack of. It's the story of a loss of faith and disbelief that Providence might ever smile again.
Read information about the author"Kerry Lynne was a history major in college and went into teaching for a few years. Then she wound up in the decorative painting world, where she traveled, taught and published for over 35 years and as luck would have it her hand stopped working. So she went back to what she knew: writing, history and sailing."
Lynne's fictional writings include The Pirate Captain, Chronicles of a Legend, “Nor Silver” (2014 Next Generation Indie Book Finalist Award for Historical Fiction), The Pirate Captain, Nor Gold”, Treasured Treasures the next in the series, TBR (2016) and a published short story, LocoThology #3-The Price of Victory (The Pirate Captain). The Pirate Captain, Chronicles of a Legend series is a unique literary genre, “historical pirate fiction”, a blend of historical fiction/romance/nautical/paranormal.
The Pirate Captain series is not a romance but there is a "intense" love story between the Captain and a Jacobite widow. It is not a story that ends in smiles and happily ever afters but there are deep emotions shared and sacrifices witnessed. It is not a Treasure Island “wannbe” nor will Blackbeard, Mary Reed or Jack Rackam make an appearance but there are Captain Blackthorne, Cate MacKenzie, Thomas, Hattie, and Breston Creswicke.
Comparing Captain Nathanael Blackthorne to Jack Sparrow is inevitable. What other pirate has there been in pop culture for the last 60 years? They are similar, both are pirates and captains in the West Indies from there ends the sameness. Nathan is more dangerous and lethal, because his life has been far more unforgiven.
For those of you who are landlubbers Cate the female main character, who is a lousy sailor helps explain the sailing of a 1700’s pirate ship. If you don’t understand a sailing term there is a Pinterest glossary provided at www.piratecaptain.net (for not only the nauticalese, but some of the 18th century turns of the tongue).
