The black diamond, a gem of unfathomable wealth and beauty, has plagued the Huntley family for generations. It prompted the feud with the Bencrofts, it supposedly brought a curse upon the Huntleys...and now resulted in Aurora Huntley being kidnapped and held for ransom.

Slayde Huntley is more than happy to give up the diamond if it means saving his sister's life...Only it's not his sister that he saves, but Courtney Johnston, a sea captain's daughter whose ship had been attacked by pirates and wh

In a recent DB/SA podcast, Sarah and Jane talked about whether a person can continue reading a book even though the style or the grammar bothered the reader At least one believed that a good story can overcome that.

I enjoyed reading this book despite the fact I didn't really like Courtney. I can understand her recklessness and her disregard for propriety being a she sailor but that's not really how she was portrayed. She was as lady like as can be, normally for someone to live 20 years of their life, merrily going about on seas with a bunch of rowdy sailors, one can't be expected to be all prim and feminine. Oh well, she did mention a couple of times that school for young girls she attended.
