It's a different kind of Monday because this is probably the first time I've featured a novel which has been written by co-authors.
Crooked Cat Publishing has recently launched a historical novel - Five Guns Blazing - written by Emma Rose Millar and Kevin Allen (September 2015)
The cover is an intriguing one, maybe even beguiling - and it's on my TBR list!
"Never had she imagined she would be brought so low, and all for the love of a very bad man."
Convict’s daughter, Laetitia Beedham, is set on an epic journey from the back streets of London, through transportation to Barbados and gruelling plantation life, into the clutches of notorious pirates John ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham, Mary Read and the treacherous Anne Bonny.
In a world of villainy and deceit, where black men are kept in chains and a woman will sell her daughter for a few gold coins, Laetitia can find no one in whom to place her trust.
As the King’s men close in on the pirates and the noose begins to tighten around their necks, who will win her loyalty and her heart?
