1660. The Royal Navy is establishing itself as the world’s dominant naval power.
In Yorkshire, Scarlett Browning, daughter of prolific smuggler Smoker Browning, is establishing herself as a skilled sailor aboard her father’s ships.
Spotting the chance to legitimise their endeavours, Scarlett switches to privateering. With their letter of marque (proof of the English Crown’s consent), Scarlett and her crew head to the Channel. There they attack French and Spanish vessels, topping up the English Treasury — and their own coffers.
Scarlett proves herself a merciless captain, capable of silencing her enemies with cut-throat efficiency. One violent clash leaves her twin brother blinded — and fires up Scarlett’s bloodthirsty appetite for revenge.
She commandeers a French ship and heads to the Caribbean. There her ruthless raids come to the attention of the Spanish Inquisition, who are determined to seize and punish this ferocious female captain.
Scarlett finally comes face to face with an enemy even more savage than she is.
An enemy bent on destroying her whatever it takes.
