The Caribbean in the latter part of the seventeenth century, and into the eighteenth century, is under pirate rule. To maintain his claim to the islands, the King of England appoints Lord John Hume as governor of the Bahamas. Hume, along with his wife and daughter, Abigail, set sail. Colleen Edwards, daughter of an English Privateer, meets Abby while on an errand for her father. An immediate bond forms between the two women and the infrequency of their contact leaves them both hungry for a more permanent arrangement. When Abby is captured and held for ransom by the notorious pirate Jack Rackham, Colleen and her father set out to rescue her, but when Charles Edwards is wounded, Colleen continues on the quest alone. If she can succeed in freeing the woman she loves, will it be possible for the two of them to create a life together?
