Book Description:

Ana Salvatore, a marine biologist, wants nothing more than to have an independent life free of her mobster family. While on an excursion in the Bermuda Triangle with her uncle, his boat explodes, and she wakes to find herself in the arms of gorgeous Captain Jacen Stirling on an ancient ship. It's like a fairytale, until he tells her the year is 1814.

Jacen is on a secret mission for General Andrew Jackson to infiltrate the infamous privateer Jean Lafitte’s encampment to determine his loyalties. When he discovers Ana while on his way to meet Lafitte, he can’t decide if she’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to him, or the best.

As the Battle of New Orleans draws nearer, can Jacen and Ana work together to help their country beat the invaders? Or will the British, the war, or the savage winds of time keep them apart?


The latch lifted
and Captain Jacen Stirling entered. When he turned to shut the door, she
noticed the captain’s own pants had the same double rows of buttons hers had.
She made eye contact and found him staring at her with a stone face. Her mouth
dropped open, and she stuttered as she realized he’d noticed where her gaze had
“I was… It’s
your pants… And mine, too. They’re, like, really old-fashioned.”
He glanced down
at his black britches. “My trousers aren’t, I admit, at the height of the Parisian
standards, but since we are currently at war, I believe priorities are in
She blinked. “I
know I’ve been busy finishing up my doctorate, but I hadn’t realized things had
so much worse in
the Middle East that they’ve affected fashion trends.”
“The Middle
“Uh huh.”
“Do you speak of
war? In the Middle East?”
“Uh, yeah… The
last time I checked. Why? What war are you referring to?”
He stood taller.
“I speak of war with Great Britain and their continued efforts to prove our young
country isn’t valiant enough to stand on its own.”
“Uh huh,” she
muttered. Is he off his meds? “Great Britain, huh?”
He gave a curt
“So, you’re,
like, talking Revolutionary War?”
“That war ended
some time ago. I speak of our current situation that began in 1812.”
“1812?” She
suddenly felt like she was watching the final round of Wimbledon and each
opponent kept
gaining the edge
to win, only to lose it again. “As in one-eight-one-two?”
“No,” he
scoffed. “As in one-nine-one-two. What bloody year did you think I was
referring to?”
“Oh, you know,
nothing like referring to a war that took place over two hundred years ago,”
she said dryly.
He froze, and
the edges of his lips rose in a grin. “Two hundred years ago? What year do you
think this is?”
“I don’t know…
Maybe 2017?”
