Charity's Cross by MaryLu Tyndall
Book 4 in the Charles Towne Belle Series

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.  

 I loved how she went back and did Charity's Story!! She was always the sister you heard about in the other books. She was married, had money and seemed to be well set and the happy sister. Boy was that wrong!!! In Charity's Cross you get to become familiar with how Charity's husband had been treating her for all those years. What all she had to endure in her young life. When she has the opportunity to escape and see her sisters she takes it without looking back! Swearing off men Charity jumps on a ship to find her father and sisters.

Elias Dutton, one of my favorite things about him, is that he ties in from another one of Marylu's stories! I love how she does this!!! (when you read the book you will understand) He is a man from a past that has tried to stay on the right and narrow ever since his big 'mistake' as a young man. But he just can't help himself when it comes to saving beautiful damsels in distress. He rescues Ms. Charity from the waters and proceeds to help her make her way to her family...but it's not without difficulties along the way. From Spies on the inside, and waring of feelings in his heart, Will Elias ever get Charity to the colonies? And will Charity's precious secret threaten all she has come to hold dear?

This is a great book that you can either read as part of the series (which I recommend because it is that good!) or you can read it as a stand alone. Either way, READ IT!

Reckoning by MaryLu Tyndal

Back Cover:
When Morgan Shaw crept into the hold of an old pirate ship replica at San Diego’s Annual Tall Ship Festival, her only intention was to avoid the guy who had just dumped her and who was now boarding the ship with two women on his arm. What she didn’t expect was to wake up aboard a real pirate ship three-hundred years in the past. But of course, it wasn’t real. Her wealthy father had obviously staged it all in an effort to get her mind off her upcoming chemo. Or had he?  

Pirate Rowan Dutton seeks enough treasure to repay a debt to his sister and reinstate the Dutton name among British Jamaican Society. He is but one major haul away from accomplishing his goal when a strange woman appears on his ship and causes him to lose his prey. Despite his anger, he is enthralled with the little minx, her strange clothing, odd speech, and her insistence that they are all actors playing a charade paid for by her father.  

Yet when the brazen little lady divulges Rowan’s secret to a longtime nemesis, events are triggered that could cost them both their lives and change the course of history forever.

This is one of those books you love to read, because it marries old favorite characters with a new generation. You get to hear about everyone in the Legacy of the Kings Pirates series! Plus you get to hear and learn about a new generation, the children :)
When Morgan is having a hard time with health issues, a horrible boyfriend, and a little to much to drink...along with being at a Pirate re-inactment on board the Reckoning. Little did she know she was stepping directly into her past/future. It all starts when she is intrigued by a painting done of the great pirate Rowan on board his Ship the Reckoning. And after that it gets a little hazy for her.
Rowan doesn't understand this woman that has appeared on his ship. All he knows is that he likes her. but she is distracting him from his mission.
Marylu has done it again where she has brought together the past with the present in a wonderful Pirate based book! I love how she does this. The two in this book fight their attraction. And even though they are both confused out of their minds over what is happening they start to form a friendship and mutual trust and understanding that has them helping each other out through out the whole book. In the end this book has some plot twists that I think will surprise you!
