By Cheryl Sawyer

Jean Laffite is a pirate with a brutal reputation.

A black-eyed sea gypsy, he is legendary for his plundering of ships and seduction of women.

Léonore Roncival, a pirate’s daughter, is mistress of the Caribbean island of San Stefan. Léonore, too, inspires whispered innuendo. Her island is rumoured to be awash in treasure. Her beauty is said to lure men to the peaks of ecstasy-and to their doom. Even the ruthless Jean Laffite can’t ignore her call …

Determined to eliminate this rival on the high seas, Laffite comes to raid her home. There he faces a battle of wits that he never foresaw, and risks his heart.

As the aftershocks of Napoleonic war reach America, the passionate conflict between Jean and Léonore drives them between two nations, into the Battle of New Orleans…

New Zealander Cheryl Sawyer has two master’s degrees, with honours in French and English literature, and her career has included teaching, publishing and writing. She has travelled to all the countries where her novels are set, and currently lives in Sydney, Australia.
