There are a lot of independantly published books coming out and I don’t get to hear about them all. Helen Hollick has announced a Nautical Blog Hop for September which had the added benefit of pointing out some nautical authors I had not added to the site. Quite a few of these write about pirates so below is a summary of some of the recently released pirate books::
The Royal Bounty Hunter by J. M. Aucoin
Privateer and pirate hunter, Captain Thomas Crowe, has been commissioned by the governor of Havana to hunt down and capture the cunning and deadly pirate, Captain Jake Hawking. Alas, Hawking isn’t an ordinary pirate and tracking the infamous rogue down hasn’t been easy for Crowe and his crew. But Crowe sees his fortune change when his ship, the Bounty, comes across a British naval captain, Captain James Thorpe, stranded on a small craft alone in the open Caribbean Ocean. Thorpe’s ship was attacked by Jake Hawking and beached on a deserted island not far off.
