This book starts off with a BANG! ! First page, Charity shoots her husband and then runs for her life! I am always amazed with all the action MaryLu Tyndall puts on each page. Charity ends up being saved by a preacher who turns out to also be a ex-pirate and we sail off on his ship into many danger times on the high seas of the Caribbean. Elias Dutton has fallen for this madcap woman and has taken it as his duty to see her back to her family and, hopefully get her to fall in love with him before the journey is over. But, even though she feels something for Elias, Charity has had enough of men. She has decided they are all as abusive as her husband was and not to be trusted. Charity has been through enough abuse, suffering and loss, that all she wants is her freedom and to return to her family. What a time these two have as she keeps running and he keeps saving! Swashbuckling pirates, uncivilized natives in a dangerous jungle and an angry brother-in-law after them make for a page turner I was wanting to go on and on!
If you enjoy action, a little romance and a book that will keep you turning the pages. Let me introduce you to MaryLu Tyndall! Trust me you will want to read more of her books..

About the book
Suspected of killing her husband, Charity Westcott flees on the first ship out of Portsmouth, England heading for the colonies. Loathing all men after her abusive marriage, she hopes to reunite with her family in Charles Towne, but the ship ends up in Nassau. When she spots her husband’s brother, who is intent on seeing her hang, boarding her ship, she jumps overboard.
Elias Dutton, preacher and son of the famous pirate, Rowan Dutton, must get to Barbados as soon as possible. His sister is in danger, and his parents have charged him with her safety. He cannot let them down—again. But after rescuing a madcap woman from the bay, he now finds himself tricked into masquerading as her husband so they both can procure passage to Barbados.
Pirates, storms, shipwreck and betrayal threaten to delay the couple in their journey even as sparks fly between them. With her brother-in-law in fast pursuit, the last thing Charity wants is help from a man, especially a religious one, but she has no choice. After Elias’ heart was broken by a sordid woman who nearly ruined his life, he seeks a godly woman pure as the virgin sands of the Caribbean. He believes he has found such a woman in Charity. Until he discovers she is a murderer and is now faced with two choices: letting her go or turning her in to the authorities.
