A bitter man, pirate Jack Shadow Stirling cares for little but his ship and his crew. But disaster strikes the Golden Orion; driven leagues off course in a storm, his men begin dropping like flies from typhus. Forced to anchor in a bay on the West Africa coast to see to his men and mend damage to the hull, Jack and three of his crew go in search of fresh water and meat to shore up their dwindling supplies. What he finds surprises him - an English lady, whom he likens to a rare orchid, is treating the sick from a nearby village, while her botanist brother, Alexander Bromley, searches for specimens. 

Startled by pirates invading her small camp, Lydia Bromley snatches up her pistol and aims it at the tall, dark-haired, handsome devil who leads them. Unfazed, he grins at her and warns her that should she shoot him with a muff pistol, she would fail to kill him. But he would be annoyed. 

Thus begins Lydia's journey, discovering the love and romance she’d thought denied her... with a pirate! 


Captain Jack "Shadow"Sterling and his crew of pirates have to limp into shore on the African coast.  The ship has been damaged and some of his men are very sick. 
Lydia Bromley and her brother have been in Africa studying the plants and the medicinal values of them. 
The natives do not take kindly to more "white men" in the area.  All of a sudden everyone's life is in danger. 
This is a historical romance full of adventure and danger for all our characters.  I really enjoyed travelling the high seas with them.  I think that I would have stayed on the islands myself but that's just my love of the sea showing. 
I loved it. 


Maggi Andersen wrote her first book for publication after gaining a BA in English and an MA in Creative Writing. She lives with her husband, a retired lawyer in an historic country town near Sydney, Australia. She wrote her first adventure story at 8 years old. Her novels are still adventure stories, but also seductive romances. Georgette Heyer and Victoria Holt among others, inspired her Regencies and she also writes contemporary romantic suspense, darker, Victorian mysteries and young adult novels.

Maggi supports the RSPCA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals) and animals often feature in her books, IFAW and Youth off the Streets.
