Heart of a Pirate – All About My New WIP

Hello, Readers!

Some of you may already know about Heart of a Pirate.

Some of you may be completely confused.

Well, don’t worry because this post is going to answer your questions…

What is Heart of a Pirate?

Adrian isn’t sure where his loyalty lies anymore…

The pirate’s life is all he has ever known – pillaging and plundering, drinking and gambling – but the longer he goes on living this way, the stronger his guilt grows. He’s sure this is all wrong, but he’s been in this lifestyle for 20 years – how can he give it all up?

Still he begins to slack in his duties and distance himself from the others, but the behavior does not go unnoticed by Cael who is not so forgiving a captain.

Matters only get more complicated when Adrian happens upon Heather, a young woman from his past who is everything he’s ever needed.

Torn in two, he struggles to conceal Heather’s identity from his merciless brother and the truth of his own identity from the woman he loves.

What would Cael do if he knew the reason Adrian was always disappearing? And how would Heather react if she knew who Adrian really was?

Why am I writing this?

You’re probably wondering why I’m writing Heart of a Pirate when I already have True Colors I’m working on. 

But have I ever told you that I started out writing pirate stories? For at least 2 years they were my favorite thing to write and I think really kicked off my love for writing. 

I’ve been wanting to write another pirate romance for a while now and during my long break from True Colors, I started to develop this story. 

I was planning to put it aside once I picked up True Colors again, but I’ve actually found that it’s refreshing to have a brand new story in the works at the same time. I mean, let’s face it – I’m writing True Colors for the third time – I know it like the back of my hand.
Heart of a Pirate, however, is uncharted waters (pun intended) and it’s so amazing being able to create something new while at the same time developing something old. <3


(it is not guaranteed that what is posted below will make it into the final draft)

“I apologize, brother. I should not have betrayed you.” It was almost as if he had no control of the words that came out of his mouth because when he said them, he felt his stomach tie up in knots. Everything about that sentence felt wrong and he tried to shake it away. His loyalty was to his brother – his captain.
Cael scratched his beard and then gave a curt nod. “Don’t let it happen again.” He moved close to his ear and said in a dark tone, “Next time I may not be so forgiving.”

How had he allowed himself to come to this? He’d allowed himself to lose the most important thing a man could have and now… now he was truly nothing.

Well, that’s about all I have for now. I would share some more snippets, but… I had written 4 chapters and then I realized I wasn’t happy with the way it was going, so I just started rewriting and I don’t have anything new to share. *sheepish grin* You can definitely expect to be hearing more about this story, though as well as more about True Colors (which I just handed over to alpha readers :O )!
