In 1719 Bahamas, a pirate alliance leads to love and a gypsy curse that threatens everything.
When Gina Santini’s father becomes too ill to sail, she returns from the fancy London finishing school he’d forced her to attend and takes over as captain of the ship Gypsy Doll, plundering the seas as she was raised to support them both.
Captain Charles the Charmer worked his way from cabin boy to first mate on the Gypsy Doll before he was shanghaied. Escaping a brutal master, he hides a secret while he uses his charm to convince Gina to help him win the biggest plunder of all, promising enough gold to allow them to give up pirating forever.
But betrayal swirls in the air as surely as a stormy sea, and with the curse of the real gypsy doll, betrayal can be dangerous.
