Full disclosure: Rosemary O'Malley and I have been friends since age eleven. This is her first novel, but I've been a fan of her writing for thirty years.
Here's the blurb:
WHAT HE WANTS
The pirate captain known as Ruaidhri lives only for revenge. Tall and lean, with long fiery hair and a corsair's deadly smile, his body still bears the scars of a brutal captivity at the hands of Maarten Jan de Worrt.
