Nicholas Fallon is captain of the schooner Sea Dog, a privateer that is fast, beautiful and deadly. As a privateer vs. a Royal Navy officer, Fallon enjoys total independence in where he goes, who he takes as crew (women) and how he fights. He’s his own man.
It’s 1796, and Sea Dog’s owner, Ezra Somers, orders Fallon to protect his Caribbean salt trade from French privateers and pirates. The intrigue on land is treacherous and the battles at sea are rousing and told with furious detail, including an attack on Spanish treasure ships during a viscious hurricane. Readers will discover a new kind of naval hero – creative, strategically brilliant and romantic. The Bermuda Privateer is a gripping read with layered storylines and a modern storyteller’s voice.
There’s room for very few books in an ocean going-library. The Captain Nicholas Fallon series are books worth taking to sea.
