**Award Finalist : "Fiction: Romance" category of the 2017 Best Book Awards**
An infamous creole sea captain...a beautiful quadroon stowaway--a forbidden love that surges with the tides.
A rum privateer on the run, Captain Alex Lafitte wanders the Caribbean aboard his ship, the Enchanted Lady, avoiding his infamous cousins at all costs. But when his childhood love, Talia Barberry, begs him to save her adopted son from the New Orleans authorities during the slave rebellions. Alex welcomes the little slave boy he once owned with open arms. However, Marcus is now a man grown—with a secret: he's snuck the woman he loves onto Alex's ship.
The last thing Zaria St. Claire wanted was to sail to the islands hidden in the cargo hold of a ship. After her white father's death during the slave rebellions in New Orleans, she has no choice but to live now and fight another day. However, she never thought she'd find a demi-god of a man standing half-clad on the deck of the ship. Alex's strong, male presence ignites a fire deep within her soul, and as their voyage progresses, Zaria can no longer hide her feelings for the Creole.
When Alex discovers the beautiful quadroon stowaway on the deck of his ship, he thought he'd died and gone to heaven. Zaria's keen intellect and coppery eyes drawn him in like a bee to honey. But there's one problem: the girl is Marcus'. Struggling to keep his distance, Alex fights an inner battle of love and desire that unravels when Zaria risks her life to save his ship from a British brig. He wants her. And Alex vows that he'll do whatever it takes to protect Zaria from her past and make her his—no matter what the law says.
