Genre: “This Modern Penny Dreadful has it all!”

Cover Blurb:

This is a Scorching Tale and Not for the Seeker of Mild Romance!!

Captain Lucien DeVair, known as the Sea Devil, was the most feared pirate of his age but also the most desired by every wench in his path. Unfortunately after bedding a jealous sorceress, he and his ship and crew are cursed to forever sail without making landfall. After over three centuries, Lucien is more than ready to see an end to his punishment and to taste the delights of a willing woman.

When spoiled sorority girl, Shana Turner, takes a tumble off the deck of a cruise ship and lands on a garbage drift, it’s fairly clear that fate has taken her down a peg or two. But when she is rescued by an insane albeit sexy man who thinks he’s the Sea Devil sailing around the Caribbean on a vintage ship manned by zombies…It’s a twist this blonde bombshell just didn’t plan on.

Lucien quickly comes to believe that this new modern version of a witch may prove to be his way out of the curse. It’s a sexual race to the finish because while Shana enjoys the delicious way he tries to convince her to break the spell that keeps him at sea, his patience is bound to wear thin. It’s a fantasy that can turn into a nightmare but for now, she likes having the Sea Devil in hand. (And on top, and from behind, and in the rigging…)

HOT romance and humor collide for a wild ride! This Modern Penny Dreadful has it all! Pirates, Sorority Girls, Zombies and the surprising erotic games to be found aboard a cursed ship trapped in the Bermuda Triangle when all hope is lost. Seriously fun and deliberately crafted to be an entertaining read like no other–A.R. Crimson defies description and delivers a tale you’ll never forget!
