I love sequels!
I enjoyed writing that sequel so much, I had to write another...of course I had to write the first story first - before I could come up with a sequel, so I did.
Here's a little bit more about A Rogue's Redemption, which follows the exploits of female pirate captain Fallon Robard.
Fallon Robard, captain of the all-female crew of the Gabrielle, made her most difficult decision when she abandoned young lovers Rhea Galant and Lord Sheppard York on a deserted island after Sheppard’s father refused to pay the ransom for his kidnapped son. Now, months later, Sheppard’s older brothers, Jacob and Jon, have tracked down Fallon.
The handsome twins seek to avenge their brother’s suffering and demand Fallon repent her crimes. When faced with punishment at the hands of two masterful men, will Fallon get more than she bargained for, or just what she deserves?

In Jacob’s dream, warm feminine flesh rode over his. The tempting scent of Fallon’s skin filled his lungs, and the rush of illicit arousal tightened his loins.
He’d been so close to taking her when she lay limp beneath him on her bed. Straddling her slender waist while he bound her delicate wrists, the rake in him had considered it, but the gentleman he’d been bred to be refused.
If he made love to her—when—she’d be awake, aware and at least partially willing…or he’d be blissfully asleep as he must certainly be now. He imagined her sliding the sea green silk above her thighs, swinging one shapely leg over his body and climbing atop him while he lay in his borrowed bunk.
Separated from her feminine heat by no more than his thin under breeches, his cock responded as any man’s would, but his rapid pulse skipped a beat when the cool hiss of a blade being drawn against leather filled his ears. His dream ended with Fallon Robard’s soft chuckle as she bore down on his chest.
A dagger glinted in the moonlight, and the sharp tip found a tender spot below his jaw. She shifted her hips, bringing her naked sex against his straining erection. The blade pressed deeper into his skin and pierced his flesh. He felt a bead of warm blood break and trickle down to the hollow of his throat.
“Good evening, milord. Pardon me for disturbing your sleep, but I’ve a favor to ask.”
“At the moment, I don’t think I’m in any position to deny you, Captain.”
The press of the blade let up a fraction, allowing the minute cut she’d made to flow freely. “My request’s a simple one, Lord York. You and your brother will climb into the fishing boat and paddle away, and our paths will never cross again.”
“As you wish, milady. With haste.” Jacob shifted his legs and managed to arch his back a bit.
Her weapon still poised, Fallon rode him, a wicked smile curving her luscious lips. “You can humor me, but note the ease with which I ended up above you. I could have slid my blade between your ribs while you slept, then moved on to dispatch your brother.”
“True, but I suspect you’d rather I slid my blade between your legs, wouldn’t you, Fallon?” Jacob bucked, a subtle movement, but one that left no doubt his of his intentions. In response, she tightened her thighs around his waist, and a swift breath drew her pebbled nipples tight against the pale silk of her gown.
Her golden brows knit and she cursed. “You can fancy yourself of interest to me, but I’d sooner watch you bleed than watch you come. Your game has ended. This time I’m granting you mercy just as I did for Sheppard, but should we ever meet again, I promise you, dear Jacob, I’ll take great pleasure in your demise.”
Jacob smirked. His right thumb brushed Fallon’s knee, and she flinched. “Tell me the truth. You could have killed me, or you could have fled. Instead you’re here in my bed, your breasts heaving, cheeks flushed. Only a thin layer of cloth separates our intimate flesh, and I’d wager you’d be just as eager as I to have it removed.”
She threw her head back and gave a sharp laugh. “Wouldn’t we all like a good fuck, milord? I’ll get mine from a man in Cape Town I pay a handsome sum to follow my instructions. I imagine you’ll get yours for a shilling or two from the first willing bar wench to greet you when you return to Tremont. All I want from you, Lord York, is your absence.”
“Hmm. Very well. You have me at a disadvantage. I’ll go and take my traitorous brother with me. I gather he was involved in your escape.”
She leaned back, still brandishing the skinny dagger. Jacob had no doubt she’d deal a fatal cut if provoked. “Of course Jon helped me. Isn’t it clear to you he finds your plot for revenge abhorrent? You can’t trust your own blood. You’d best keep that in mind the next time you place faith in the loyalty of your twin.”
“I will.” In a carefully executed move, Jacob dislodged her from her perch. He slapped her wrist, sending the dagger skittering across the floor. Armed now only with her rage, she lunged for his throat. She’d have throttled him, but his arms were slightly longer, his muscles stronger than hers. They wrestled off the narrow bunk and hit the floor, Jacob on top.
Fallon’s breath left her in a whoosh, and she lay stunned beneath him, momentarily dazed by the impact of her skull against the planks. Jacob wrapped a hand around the back of her neck and lifted her as he rose.
She fought him, kicking and biting as he spun her to face away from him, dragged her arms behind her and tucked her hands into the wide leather belt that canted across her hips. Effectively bound now, she cursed viciously when he pushed her onto the bunk.
“Tell me exactly what it is you want now, Captain Fallon,” Jacob demanded through clenched teeth. With one hand he held her flat against the mattress, and with the other he lifted her skirt, exposing her backside. He caressed the smooth skin of her cheeks, which, though clenched tight, still left the folds of her femininity exposed between them.
His cock pulsed at the sight and his balls tightened as he raised a hand to deliver exactly what the lovely lady pirate needed.
