There’s something very special and romantic about Lisa A. Olech’s Captains of the Scarlet Night series. I didn’t get into it until the fourth story, but when I saw Within a Captain’s Soul I was really excited to read it. Bump, also known as William Quinn, was born deaf and eventually became a pirate captain. His background really intrigued me, and I loved every single heart-wrenching moment of his journey.

Will’s caught in a storm that shipwrecks The Scarlet Night and he ends up ashore alone, dis

An unusual cross-culture book. There is a Jamaican hero of color who is a ship captain and also deaf. The heroine is a Chinese pirate queen. It sounds ridiculous, but is actually a well-written, well-grounded story. There is great depth of emotion shown by both lead characters and the secondary characters enhance the story. Will is on a mission to China to get medical help for the lady who raised him. When his ship crashes in a storm he is washed ashore near the pirate kingdom ruled by Jian Jun. ...more

I read this as a stand alone but felt such an emotional connection to Bump and his mates that I will read this series from the beginning. Not only is this a great pirate adventure, it is a tale of living up to one's potential, about the strength of friendship and loyalty. It is also a very touching story of forbidden love.

The story begins on a sad note, rushing against time and nature to save the life of past Captain Tupper. As the Scarlet Night nears her destination, a storm challenges everythi

Lisa is an artist/writer living in her dream house nestled among the lakes in New England. She loves getting lost in a steamy book, finding the perfect pair of sexy shoes, and hearing the laughter of her men. Being an estrogen island in a sea of testosterone makes her queen. She believes in ghosts, silver linings, the power of a man in a tuxedo, and happy endings.

Lisa would love to hear from her r
