The most feared, audacious and daring pirate in the Indies is Captain Thorne whose fast ship and loyal crew overtake many merchant vessels. While the men may become rich from their booty, it is revenge that drives Captain Thorne; she seeks vengeance against the man who raped and killed her sister. Lynette Blackthorne is out to ruin Lord Roger by capturing as many of his ships as possible.

However, when she seizes the ship of Captain Daniel Bradley, she gets more than she bargained for. With Daniel as her prisoner, the two grow closer and though she scorns his gentlemanly manners, Lynette is attracted to him. Both strong-willed, determined and hiding dark secrets, their wills clash as easily as their swords flash and their passions ignite.

Captain Lynette Blackthorne ranks right up there with Emerald and Serena as the boldest women pirates in romance. Readers who like their adventure with a sea breeze, sexual tension on high and rapier-sharp dialogue will adore THE MAIDENS REVENGE. Hillary Fields makes her mark with an unforgettable debut. SENSUAL (Feb. 340 pp., $6.99)
