The tempestuous waters churned like a boiling cauldron, the waves shifting and crashing against Ronan MacMillian’s ship. He was a feared and legendary pirate—but this night he sailed with a thirst for both blood and revenge.

Betrayed by an old enemy, Ronan lost his most powerful weapon—his hand. The hook now swung from his belt in a cruel reminder of his enemy’s treachery.

But Ronan would not be deterred—fueled by anger and darkness, he struck a deal with a demon—To restore his hand in exchange for the beautiful mermaid Angelica, daughter of the Merking.

On moonless nights, he ventured to forbidden depths, searching for her amongst the jagged rocks and hidden caves. Yet as his boat drew closer, Ronan felt something stirring deep in his soul—a power greater than any spell or enchantment. For Angelica was not just any mermaid—she was his fated mate, bound together beyond time or war.

If Ronan handed her over to the demon, he would pay with more than just his heart—he would damn his own soul.

“The Sea of Blood and Betrayal” tells the story of a vampire pirate’s struggle between revenge and love, between wrath and redemption.
