Captain Jonathan Tremayne has his hands full trying to declare his innocence and keep away from Crown ships and Pirates hell bent on revenge against him.

Sarina Talbot is sure that Jonathan is responsible for her father's death and stole his cutlass. Yet Jonathan says he is innocent but can lead her to the man responsible and the two form an uneasy alliance.

As the two try and follow clues they have to navigate those out to reach a certain treasure before them, the law and each other and discover who is the spy among them.

This was a great read that kept me interested from start to finish and was a bit more fast moving than the last book I read involving pirates.

One thing I liked was the difference between what Sarina knew of her father and what Jonathan knew. I thought that was a great twist as it put things in a different perspective and it made Sarina re-evaluate what she knew about everything. She was strong and determined and did not want to back down from anything.

I thought Jonathan was definitely an interesting character in that he was a "dangerous" pirate yet at the same time he wanted to protect Sarina on his boat and go after a treasure while keeping everyone safe from those who were against him. He knew he had feelings for Sarina but was a little afraid to act on them to begin with.

I loved the character of Charlotte, Jonathan's half-sister. Loved her "seer" abilities and I loved how straight forward she was. I thought her relationship with Maxwell Baines was great and I would love a book with the two of them!

I wasn't surprised at the reveal of who the spy was as I never trusted the guy and thought he was kind of scummy.

I really enjoyed the race for the treasure and how everything came about. Loved the rivalry on the water!!
