If there be pirates...

Today is the release day for my friend Maria Zanini's new book, Mistress of the Stone, and I want to tell you about it! The story is a Paranormal-Historical from Samahain. Just so you know, it's a more sensual read than the sweets I write!

Two things about this book really appeal to me. First the author—love Maria—and second, pirates! I love pirates!

I especially love these two handsome sea-dog devils to the left. They belong to Maria, but these pirates can come pillage and plunder my pantry anytime they'd like!

But back to the book...

Want to know what Mistress of the Stone is about?

A young woman at the helm of a pirate ship braves ghouls, ghosts and werewolves to find her father--or avenge his death.

If that doesn't whet your appetite, maybe this blurb will...

Luísa Tavares has a list of sins the length of the Antilles, but there’s no time to repent for them now. When a pockmarked Frenchman hands her Papa’s ring—still attached to his severed finger—she orders the Coral back to the Caribbean, despite her father’s earlier warning never to return.

It’s Luísa’s luckless fate that the only man who can help her is a blasted Inglés pirate hunter who’s more dead than alive and locked in a curse he doesn’t want lifted. Worse, his feral sensuality sparks a hunger she can’t ignore.

Xander Daltry hadn’t planned on kidnapping this wild woman—or succumbing to his uncontrollable desire for her. But he needs Luísa and the moonstone she wears around her neck to rescind a witch’s spell. His sister, long dead, and others like her have been cursed to remain in the mortal plane for eternity. Only the stone can set them free. 



The only way to convince the reluctant pirate queen to help him is to withhold one small bit of the truth. For if she learns who really betrayed her father, the longing in her fiery eyes could easily turn to murderous wrath…


Doesn't that sound good? You can purchase the book here at Samhain.

If you read the book, make sure you let me know what you thought, okay? Hope you have a great day!

I read Mistress of the Stone in one sitting. Couldn't put it down. Great characters and an action packed story. I highly recommend it.
