Set in 1814 in Sicily, Algeria and Turkey, Captive of the Corsairs is an action packed historical romance.
Sophia Green is a bookish young woman interested in archaeology. She struggles with her own shyness, her mixed English-Spanish heritage and keeping her flighty cousin Laura from most unsuitable suitors.
Offered the opportunity to join an expedition to Palermo, it seems just the thing to remove Laura from her latest temptation while Sophia hopes her absence will make the heart of Laura’s brother, Samuel, grow fonder.
However, Sophia doesn’t count on meeting the handsome but abrasive Captain Kit Hardacre whose scandalous insult to the Turkish ambassador is the talk of Sicily. And worse is to come when Laura goes missing and the only man who can help is the one man she cannot trust.
