The Just and The Merciful
Please, refer to the 2nd edition because it is much different (and better) from the original! Thanks
A corrupt priest, a vengeful Captain, a power hungry Quartermaster and a beautiful girl, victim to the greed and lust of the treacherous Caribbean.
In 1725 Puerto Rico, in the Golden age of piracy, twenty-year-old Celeste Gregory dreams of a life of adventure away from her aristocratic title and overbearing adoptive father, the respected Priest Dante.
That is until the fateful night her and her maid, Lucille, are kidnapped by pirates and held for ransom by the mysterious Captain Drew, who doesn't seek the Priests vast wealth but revenge on the holy man.
Priest Dante is distraught when he receives the note that his daughter has been kidnapped by pirates. But what concerns him the most is not for Celeste's safe return but rather the knowledge the mysterious Captain posses---even that of eternal youth.
Sailing for the coast of Florida with his two captives, Captain Drew seeks to find the fabled isle of Bimini, which only surfaces every century for four days, before the Priest Dante does. Here the Captain will give the Priest a choice between immortality or the life of his beloved daughter.
Celeste has been thrown into a world of corruption and adventure were secrets are revealed, ambitions exposed and were justice is satisfied
