by Sophia Menesini
Genre: NA Fantasy/LGBT
Release date: July 2019
Captain Shea Lara is the current leader of The Veiled Duchess. The most feared pirate ship in all of Neried. And now, after completing her former mentor’s final score, she’s retiring. Everything seems to be coming to an end… Until a mysterious stranger drags her back into the fold with an offer for a score she can’t refuse. All she has to do is kidnap the crowned princess of the northern Queendom, Princess Joana of Arethusa. The prize is just within reach. But sparks fly as the two women collide. And an obscured threat that could upturn Shea’s entire world storms on the horizon. She’ll face it alone unless she can allow herself the support she needs from old and new allies alike. Something’s coming and Shea is at the center of it.
“It’s too late to play the hero, captain,” The princess mocks keeping her stance solid and firm, “You’ve already said yourself, you’re the villain of this story.”
At that, Shea’s gaze snaps to her and Aster shifts uncomfortably. It feels as if the room has dropped several degrees below freezing.
“Was that how you saw me before, a hero?” Shea asks, stepping towards the bar and running her finger down one of the lengths.
Joana rolls her eyes, one eyebrow arching as she crosses her arms, “Not exactly.”
“Really? Perhaps the sweet love interest? Maybe now I can play the redeemable villain?”
Shea boasts with great sarcasm.
“Better yet: the heartless monster who gets slain in the end,” Joana coldly responds, shooting daggers in Shea’s direction.
