The troubled, guilt-ridden spirit of Charles Mereno (Jesimiah’s father) prowls the pages of Bring It Close striving to set right his many wrong doings during his earthly life. The spirit’s story reveals how Jesimiah suffered because of his father’s faulty judgment and how Evil personified in the person Black Beard came to be.

Jesimiah Acorne and Tiola Oldstagh maneuver to survive as they deal with Evil’s ambassador Edward Teach (Black

My thoughts:

Oh Jesamiah you really should learn to keep it in your pants. Though I still do not hate him, despise him a bit yes, but not hate since Hollick is just too good making her point.

Lots happened on the last book. Jesamiah came back alive from his spying trip, he learnt new truths about his family, his brother was not his brother at all. And now he is happy but bored since he is not a pirate any more. Of course then things goes to hell when Alicia, his brother's wife and former whore sho

This is the third in the Captain Jesamiah Acorne series by Helen Rollick, and a rollicking good tale it is!

Besides the major characters of Acorne and his love, Tiola Oldstagh (a white witch), the major figure in this novel is Edward Teach, otherwise known as Blackbeard. The novel meets up with him in Bath Town, NC, (now known as simply Bath), where he is playing at living a normal life. However, his piratical and barbarous ways are never far from him.

Jesamiah has a way of always ending in a jai

This is the third of Helen Hollick's magnificent pirate series, the voyages of the Sea Witch, featuring its captain, Jesamiah Acorne, a reformed pirate but not always a reformed man.

In this thrilling episode, his lover and White Witch, Tiola is called to the Carolinas to help a lady who is having a difficult pregnancy, for her healing powers are well known. Jesamiah decides to follow the ship that is carrying her but encounters an old and very dangerous adversary – Edward Teach, better known as

"To fans of historical fiction looking for a unique twist of fantasy intertwined, I recommend Bring It Close and Hollick’s preceding two novels in this series, Sea Witch and Pirate Code." full review may be read on my book review blog Rundpinne.

If you haven't read any of Helen's books about Jesamiah Acorne the handsome charismatic, sexy Pirate captain of the "Sea Witch" you are missing a fabulous treat. They are wonderful! Lots of excitement, romance, adventure with a blend of the supernatural added both on the high seas and off them."Bring it Close" is the third in the series.

Arggg! Captain Acorne starts off quite the pirate rogue in his regards to his relationship with Tiola.

In addition, his life gets rocky as the past is revealed to us and catches up with him.

I love how there are strong female characters in this story and how they fend for themselves.

Again, loved the details of ships, sailing and the beauty of the sea.

Swashbuckling fantasy set on the coasts of colonial Virginia and North Carolina, featuring the historical pirate Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard. Third in the Jesamiah Acorne pirate series.

Well told story, enjoyed the build up. End was too quick, seemed like a rushed effort, pity. Hope there are explanations of the gold and the plantation etc. in a following book.
