In this thrilling fantasy novel, a young woman named Ananna runs away from her arranged marriage and ends up accidentally cursing the assassin sent to kill her. To break the curse, they must work together and embark on a perilous journey across the sea. Ananna is a fierce and determined heroine who isn’t afraid to stand up to anyone who stands in her way.

Ananna of the Tanarau abandons ship when her parents try to marry her off to an allying pirate clan: she wants to captain her own boat, not serve as second-in-command to her handsome yet clueless fiance. But her escape has dire consequences when she learns the scorned clan has sent an assassin after her. 

And when the assassin, Naji, finally catches up with her, things get even worse. Ananna inadvertently triggers a nasty curse — with a life-altering result. Now Ananna and Naji are forced to become uneasy allies as they work together to break the curse and return their lives back to normal. Or at least as normal as the lives of a pirate and an assassin can be.

On the sea, nothing changes.
Unless there is blood.

When Leena Davies was a child, pirates took her eye and killed her father. She did not remember their faces, but she could not forget the day. Filled with childlike revenge, she and her brother Tristan ventured every night to the seashore to plot against the pirates who had taken everything from them.

Until her brother committed arson on the night of the blood moon.

To pay her brother’s bail, Mr. Hackney of the Sanguine Tortuga acquires Leena and puts her to work. With a new life onboard a ship filled with magic and talent, Leena sees a potential future of adventure, only to be greeted by redundancy. Locked in a routine, with nothing remarkable about her, Leena’s future lies in the hands of a captain with a vendetta.

After Mr. Hackney acquires an alluring pirate with a secret, and as discontent grows amongst his acquisitions, murmurs of rebellion echo within the belly of the Sanguine Tortuga. Leena must decide where to place her loyalties. Will an act of treason reunite her with her brother? Or will it turn her into the thing she despises?

After all, what is a pirate but a name?

A desperate orphan turned pirate and a rebellious imperial daughter find a connection on the high seas in a world divided by colonialism and threaded with magic.

Aboard the pirate ship Dove, Flora the girl takes on the identity of Florian the man to earn the respect and protection of the crew. For Flora, former starving urchin, the brutal life of a pirate is about survival: don’t trust, don’t stick out, and don’t feel. But on this voyage, as the pirates prepare to sell their unsuspecting passengers into slavery, Flora is drawn to the Lady Evelyn Hasegawa, who is en route to a dreaded arranged marriage with her own casket in tow. Flora doesn’t expect to be taken under Evelyn’s wing, and Evelyn doesn’t expect to find such a deep bond with the pirate Florian.

Soon the unlikely pair set in motion a wild escape that will free a captured mermaid (coveted for her blood, which causes men to have visions and lose memories) and involve the mysterious Pirate Supreme, an opportunistic witch, and the all-encompassing Sea itself.
