The powerful story of a woman and a country fighting for the freedom that is rightfully theirs, set against the vivid and colourful background of the Elizabethan age When Elizabeth the First learns of the hereditary treasure of the Irish O’Flaherty clan, she immediately lays claim to it. But the key to the treasure lies in finding the missing grandchild of the pirate queen, Grace O’Malley. Streetwise Barbary Clampett is wrenched from the stews of London to be groomed as the long-lost heir. But Barbary has a secret, and the woman who eventually goes to Ireland on the Queen's treasure hunt has allegiance only to herself. Caught up in the cruelty and beauty of Ireland, however, she is allowed no neutrality. She falls in love and becomes drawn into the last great Irish rebellion. Now Barbary must ask herself - who is the real pirate queen, Grace O’Malley or Elizabeth herself? This gripping historical odyssey is perfect for fans of Elizabeth Chadwick and Kate Mosse. Praise for The Pirate Queen ‘A spirited and at times highly amusing account of a ghastly episode in Irish history, told from the female point of view.’ The Times ‘Very powerful. Opens fresh windows onto known history. Filled with delectable, unforgettable characters, humorous and sinewy (sometimes bawdy) prose. Strongly recommended.’ Good Book Guide

Treasure is found in the most unlikely places. The envy of all her friends, wife and mother Saphora Warren is the model of southern gentility and accomplishment. She lives in a beautiful Lake Norman home, and has raised three capable adult children. Her husband is a successful plastic surgeon--and a philanderer. It is for that reason that, after hosting a garden party for Southern Living magazine, Saphora packs her bags to escape the trappings of the picturesque-but-vacant life. Saphora’s departure is interrupted by her husband Bender’s early arrival home, and his words that change her life forever: I’m dying. Against her desires, Saphora agrees to take care of Bender as he fights his illness. They relocate, at his insistance, to their coastal home in Oriental—the same house she had chosen for her private getaway. When her idyllic retreat is overrun by her grown children, grandchildren, townspeople, relatives, and a precocious neighbor child, Saphora’s escape to paradise is anything but the life she had imagined. As she gropes for evidence of God's presence amid the turmoil, can she discover that the richest treasures come in surprising packages?

The Pirate Queen begins in Ireland with the infamous Grace O’Malley, a ruthless pirate and scourge to the most powerful fleets of sixteenth-century Europe. This Irish clan chieftain, sea captain, and pirate queen was a contemporary of Elizabeth I, a figure whose life is the stuff of myth. Regularly raiding English ships caught off Ireland’s west coast, O’Malley was purported to have fought the Spanish armada just hours after giving birth to her son. She had several husbands in her lifetime, and acquired lands and castles that still dot the Irish coastline today. But Grace O’Malley was not alone. Since ancient times, women have rowed and sailed, commanded and fished, built boats and owned fleets. As pirate, captain’s wives, lighthouse keepers and sailors in disguise they’ve explored coastlines and set off alone across unknown seas. Yet their incredible contributions have been nearly erased from the history books. In The Pirate Queen, Barbara Sjoholm brings some of these extraordinary women back to life, taking the reader on an unforgettable journey from the wild Irish coast to the haunting Scandinavian fjords in this meticulously researched, colorfully written, and truly original work

Being a pirate is all Emmaline Descoteaux has ever known. However, if she wishes to avoid the noose, she must find another path in life. Utterly bored with everything and everyone, Emme now spends her days in bed with her sexual servants while she attempts to become a respectable businesswoman. That is until Queenie, Emme’s most trusted advisor, makes a bold prediction that sends Emme out into the streets of New Orleans in search of information. American spy turned diplomat, Alexander Pickering is in Spanish-held New Orleans attempting to obtain information about the future of the city and how his young country can use that information to its advantage as part of its plans for territorial expansion. Now that he has that information, Alex is anxious to pass it on to the people who need it the most. Before he can, however, he’s attacked in a dark alley by men looking to kill him. After Emme rescues Alex from certain death, they must go on the run together aboard her ship until help can arrive, even though trouble still follows them as they sail across the Gulf of Mexico. Can Emme trust the crew she has known for years or are they, too, determined to see her hang, and can Alex convince her that he, above all others, can be trusted to guard not just her life but her heart as well? Is it hot? Yes, it is! Please be advised that this 85,200-word novel is written in the true spirit of pirates, including “salty” language and sexual situations that would be historically appropriate for that era. It is NOT a “sweet and clean romance” and is intended for those seeking a MUCH hotter and sexier read while still looking for a romantic happily ever after. This novel is not appropriate for younger audiences
