Keeper of My Dreams
by Susan Leigh Furlong
GENRE: Historical/adventure romance
Reid Haliburton, a skilled gunsmith, wants to control who uses his revolutionary handgun until a vicious pirate decides the gun will be his. The price of refusing is Reid’s life and those of his three young sons. Reid’s only chance to save his sons is to send them away and face the pirate’s wrath alone.
Leena Cullane Adair is stunned to find three lads hiding in her cart, and, although she only met their father a week ago, he holds her heart and her dreams, and she will do whatever it takes to keep him and his sons alive.
He picked up the barrel of his new gun and began to polish it when a hard knock on his door shook him out of his reverie.
A man planted his feet and stood akimbo in the doorway, a man who obviously knew the intimidating impression his stature presented to others by his rugged good looks, his burnt mahogany colored hair and eyes. He announced in a firm voice with an English accent, “My name is Jonas McDever, and I am the captain of the Scarlet Lion. I have come to see the new weapon you are working on.”
Reid looked up from his worktable as an uneasiness settled over him. He recognized the captain’s name and his ship, the Scarlet Lion, as one reputed to attack and destroy any other ship unfortunate enough to get within spyglass range. This McDever was a pirate of the worst sort, and he didn’t care who knew it.
“I dinna ken what ye’re talking about. I have no new weapon to show ye.”
“I’m not here to argue with you.” …“Perhaps I can offer you this. I have been watching your sons for the last few days when you take them to school. Handsome lads. I captain my own ship, the Scarlet Lion, and a fine ship it is. I have need of another cabin boy. Would one or two of them like to become cabin boys on my ship?”
Reid whipped around. “Is that idle curiosity…or a threat?”
