Sailor's Knot

Pirates at Heart, #3

There is a lot going on in this super sexy novella from by Cindy Jacks. With four key characters, Jacks did an impressive job of giving each of them depth and development, despite the shorter length of the story. The Marcus and Amelie storyline is the one that captured me, and Jacks built intense passion between the two from the first page. Their connection was hot and steamy, yet the author always put their emotions front and center too. I liked the futuristic elements of the story, and I wish there had been a bit more description of that future world. All and all, Sailor’s Knot is a very hot and extremely well written futuristic novella.

For futuristic pirate bootleggers Marcus and Nathaniel Logan, business is good as they use their ship, The Yellow Rose, to run a successful smuggling business in the Reformed States of America and the Republic of Texas. Of course, their sibling rivalry makes things interesting on board, not to mention Marcus’s preoccupation with his first mate, Amelie, and the schemes of troublemaker Captain Ruby Delaney. Business quickly becomes entangled with pleasure in this sexy novella.

The year is 2037 and the next generation of Logan family pirates have taken over the helm of The Yellow Rose. Running bootleg booze and smuggling runners from the Reformed States of America into the Republic of Texas, business couldn’t be better…that is, if brothers Marcus and Nathaniel don’t kill each other in the process.

Captain Marcus Logan is serious, brooding and haunted, carrying a torch for his first mate, Amelie. Nathaniel—the resident party boy—is none of those things, but somehow they’d made their differences work for them until recently. When tall, leggy blonde Captain Ruby Delaney is a guest aboard The Rose, she turns Nathaniel’s head and stirs up all sorts of trouble, not the least of which is winding up in Marcus’ bed one drunken night. This ill-advised one-night stand ignites a love quadrangle so intertwined that the phrase “it’s complicated” doesn’t begin to define this sailor’s knot.
