Her pain at losing Heath, and the BriarMorePirate captains daughter Nancy Black walked away from her childhood sweetheart Heath, whom she loves and hates in equal measure, after realizing he would never let her seize command of the Briar Rose from him.

Her pain at losing Heath, and the Briar Rose, which is the only home she has ever known, is soothed by a marriage proposal from the kind and handsome Rufus Hardy. But can she really turn her back on Heath, and her old life as a pirate?Advisory: This 10,000-word erotic romance is the fifth in the Briar Rose series.

Contains explicit sexual material and is not suitable for under-18s.ExcerptI stepped into the tender piloted by a young feller in ragged trousers who smiled broadly at Rufuss gold coin which he flipped to him. He did not bat an eyelid at my unconventional dress, and I thanked the Lord I had decided to wear britches instead of my wool skirt when it came to stepping off the quay into the little wooden clinker.Instead of waiting for one of the men to lift me inside and seat me, I was able to take a flying leap from the steps into the tiny craft, landing like a cat in the middle so as not to destabilize it and tip out our pilot.The lady is a sailor, then?And what a sailor!

added Rufus. Good man, we have bought a ship and we would appreciate being ferried out to her. If you collect us some time soon after sunrise tomorrow, I will make it worth your while.As the man rowed around the bulk of the whaling ship that was moored nearest the dock, and which emanated a reek of stale blubber that made me want to retch, I craned eagerly around the outlines of all the vessels there anchored in a bid to catch a glimpse of my new pride and joy.Rufus sat back, a smile playing on his lips as he watched me strain my eyes through the dark trying to discern their shapes and names.

Most I discounted immediately for I could see they had men aboard, indistinct shapes shifting through the darkness. Others were too large and others far too small: flat-bottomed fishing craft for plying the local waters.Then I saw her and my heart skipped a beat: she was one of the new-fangled Bermudian sloops that I both admired and despised in equal measure.

Her shape was refined and glorious and she looked far newer than I had been expecting. A little part of me regretted her lack of character and the fact that she did not have a gorgeous soaring figurehead like the Briar Rose. But I knew that these sloops were the future, and if she wanted for romance, she had practicality in spades.I whistled admiringly.Shes not the Briar Rose, but I bet she cant half run when her sheets are flying in a breeze.So you are the folks who have bought the Eliza Jane?

Shes one fine vessel if you dont mind me saying so.Is the lady happy with her gift? Rufus winked at me.More than happy. Shes fast and reliable and shell do the trip backwards and forwards to Virginia in the blink of an eye. I cant wait to get her under sail. Well have to organize a crew, of course...We can start tomorrow, once we are married.

I do not think it will be difficult to find men to crew a pretty ship like that.I will volunteer, piped up our ferryman. If you are going to be plying the route to Virginny and back, that will suit me just fine. I have family over there and while I have a desire to see a little more of the world than this island, I should not like to go too far. I know some other crewmen, too, who are good seamen and honest.Excellent.

We shall speak to them tomorrow.
