Passion is weapon that this pirate captain yields—along with her pistol and cutlass—in a swashbuckling high seas romance.
 
To Amelia Dauphin, freedom is her most prized possession and she will stop at nothing to keep it. Daughter of a Pirate King and the youngest captain in her father’s fleet, she lives on the island of Ile Sainte Anne, where pirates roam free and liberty reigns.
 
Zachary Hazard, captain of the Gypsy Hawk, hasn’t been seen on Ile Sainte Anne for six years but his reputation precedes him. To Zach, liberty is the open water and he has little time for the land-bound pirate island.
 
But when he hears that Amelia’s people could be in danger, he has no choice but to return. And what begins then is a desperate fight for freedom and a legend in the making . . .
 
“Swashbuckling tales set during the Golden Age of Piracy are generally good for leisurely reading, and this novel is no exception. It promises an entertaining series.” —Historical Novel Society
 
“An interesting take on historical pirate romances. It’s about more than just sailing the seven seas, it’s about what exactly freedom means to these characters, and what they are willing to do for it and for each other.” —All About Romance

Paying the price…

In the action-packed sequel to A Matter of Honor, SG-1 embark on a desperate mission to save SG-10 from the edge of a black hole. But the price of heroism may be more than they can pay...

Returning to Stargate Command, Colonel Jack O’Neill and his team find more has changed in their absence than they had expected. Nonetheless, O’Neill is determined to face the consequences of their unauthorized activities, only to discover the penalty is far worse than anything he could have imagined.

With the fate of Colonel O’Neill and Major Samantha Carter unknown, and the very survival of the SGC threatened, Dr. Daniel Jackson and Teal’c mount a rescue mission to free their team-mates and reclaim the SGC.

Yet returning to the Kinahhi homeworld, they learn a startling truth about its ancient foe. And uncover a horrifying secret...

THE COST OF HONOR

“Damn it!” Watts yelled from the DHD. “This is pointless, sir! It won’t stay open!”

Standing up slowly, Major Henry Boyd glanced up at the twisting nightmare in the sky. It looked like some hideous creature come to tear them to pieces. “Keep trying,” he told the Captain.

“Sir?” Lieutenant Jessica McLeod ripped her gaze from the sky, voice shaking. “I’ve been thinking about why the gate won’t activate.

The gravitational force of the—” She stammered over the word. “Of the black hole would create a massive time distortion effect.”

He stalked toward her, frowning. “A what?”

“Time here will be moving much slower than back on Earth, sir. Much slower. The gate was probably open for half an hour at the SGC, but here…just a second.”

Boyd felt his heart clench tight. “What are you saying, Lieutenant?”

She looked bleak. “I don’t think we’re getting out of this one, sir.”

Lucy. His daughter was the first thought in his head. Sweet, innocent, adoring Lucy. Her little arms around his neck, her delighted smile when he came home. Daddy! He swallowed hard. “I won’t accept that, Lieutenant.” Lucy, barely old enough to understand. Heather, having to explain why he was never coming home again. “They’ll find a way to come get us. They won’t leave us here.”
