BOOK BLURB CHARITY'S CROSS: Tyndall spins a riveting tale of betrayal, violence, trust, and honesty in this latest inspirational pirate romance. Cindy Vallar, Pirates and Privateers Suspected of killing her husband, Charity Westcott flees on the first ship out of Portsmouth, England heading for the colonies. Loathing all men after her abusive marriage, she hopes to reunite with her family in Charles Towne, but the ship’s destination is Nassau. When she spots her husband’s brother, who is intent on seeing her hang, boarding her ship, she jumps overboard.
Elias Dutton, missionary and son of the famous pirate, Rowan Dutton, must get to Barbados as soon as possible. His sister is in danger, and his parents have charged him with her safety. He cannot let them down—again. But after rescuing a madcap woman from the bay, he now finds himself tricked into masquerading as her husband so they both can procure passage to Barbados. Pirates, storms, shipwreck and betrayal threaten to delay the couple in their journey even as sparks fly between them. With her brother-in-law in fast pursuit, the last thing Charity wants is help from a man, especially a religious one, but she has no choice. After Elias’ heart was broken by a sordid woman who nearly ruined his life, he seeks a godly woman pure as the virgin sands of the Caribbean. He believes he has found such a woman in Charity. Until he discovers she is a murderer and is now faced with two choices: letting her go or turning her in to the authorities.
BOOK BLURB: LIBERTY BRIDE
A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him and her love for her country.

Good idea, Lucy! After they were freed, many ended up unable to find work and starving on the street. Such a shame!
Honestly, I don't remember much about the Mayflower in school! I know I must have learned something! I think I learned more about American history when I homeschooled my kids!
At first I couldn't think of anything to go back and see - but then I realized I like mysteries and I would love to go back and find out why the people of Roanoke left (and I'd survive!!) and why. I've also heard that an ancestor of mine was a privateer - it would be interesting to see his ship!
Cool! A privateer! Exciting!
I learned about the Mayflower in school. I remember learning of the hardships and difficulty of the Pilgram's trip. They endured the voyage for the hope of a better life. And for the hope of promise of religious freedom.
Yes, it was mainly for religious freedom... and they found it here in America!
2. I realize now that a child's perception of history isn't always correct. I imagined Plymouth Rock as a huge boulder jutting out into the ocean that was big enough for many people to step onto. Thanks for your giveaway.
Yes, things look very different as a child. I remember going back to a childhood home that I thought was a mansion only to discover it was the tiniest house I'd ever seen!
I would love to go back to Biblical times ^_^
