Here's a short little teaser from Chapter 6 of Heart Like an Ocean. Enjoy :) Her hand wandered to the right, touching the cold, reassuring metal of the pistol. Would she have to use it? She hoped not. Senona knew she could kill Richard if she had to, but she was afraid. She had killed men on the raids, and Brant knew if needed she would defend herself, but killing made her sick, and guns were so messy and loud. Senona viewed them as a cowardly weapon, an easy way out. They made killing too detached and easy; it disturbed her. She hoped she would never find herself in a position where she had to use one.
In a society where she doesn’t belong, Senona Montez, a strong-willed and free-spirited woman refuses to follow the path expected of a Don’s only child. On the eve of her marriage to a stranger, she saddles her horse and flees everything she knows, only to discover the petty concerns of society did not prepare her for the harsh life on the open sea. She finds an unlikely protector in a reckless privateer, Brant Foxton. Straddling the worlds of independence and privilege in 1600′s Europe, this captivating man challenges her in ways she never thought possible, shows her what living to the fullest really means, and allows her to follow her heart wherever it leads.
