The Kraken’s Mirror (The Kraken’s Caribbean Series 1) by @MaureenBetita #PNR #Romance
Captain Alan Silvestri is a man haunted by a strange curse. Good luck is his to command, but it comes at the cost of a place to call home or people to reckon as family. Resigned to die and shunned by all, he is forced to sail every three days, until he begins to dream of a special woman.
Treated by our youth-oriented society as invisible and sexless, Emily Pawes is ready to move on. She attends a pirate festival, hoping to recapture the make-believe magic she knew as a young woman. She wins an interesting bit of booty at a brick-a-brac stand, and is transported by the Kraken’s mirror to a land of Hollywood piratitude. With little choice, she embraces the madness. Playing pirate has to be safer than falling into the arms of handsome Captain Silvestri, right?
When they meet, sparks fly, passion flares. He needs her to be free, but more than that, she will make him whole. Setting sail and uncertain of who actually controls the wheel, they seek ways to defeat his curse of good luck and discover the Kraken’s mirror has plans for them. Will Emily stay in this pirate haven to fight alongside him or will he lose her because of his curse?
