The Red Siren
Twenty-four-year-old Faith Westcott leads a double life: By day, she is the obedient daughter of Rear Admiral Westcott in their Charleston home in the Carolinas; by night, the fearsome pirate captain known as the Red Siren. It is 1718 (the same year that Blackbeard terrorized Charleston), and Dajon Waite, a young naval officer, has been ordered to “capture every pirate patrolling these waters and ensure they are hung by their neck until dead.” The Admiral, who must return to Britain for six months, appoints Dajon as guardian of his three daughters. Knowing her days as a pirate are numbered, Faith is determined to seize just one more ship from under the nose of her guardian.
This is a bold and unusual plot for an inspirational romance. Although the story is over-written (for example, emotions will jump to various extremes several times on the same page) and the plot details are unbelievable (just how, exactly, does Faith get her treasure trove off the ship and past all the ruffians on the way to her hiding spot in the forest?), these details will not bother those readers who enjoy a good yarn with a spirited heroine and charming hero.
