The Kiss of the Dead (First Draft)
In a time when piracy ruled the seas and a man lived by the blade, Sepp was just like any young man. Almost. But when his initial crew are conquered by a Notoriously ruthless pirate named Charles Vane; Sepp is enveloped into a world of sin, and, against his will, taken to Nassau on board his conqueror's ship. Sepp had always thought of himself as a law abiding citizen, until now. But, once press-ganged, his life is twisted beyond recognition. He must face a dangerous and criminal world of lucre, war and murder, all in a bid to survive, and to thrive. Will he ever come to terms with the new Sepp? Are all pirates really as bad as this captain appears? Most importantly, will they discover the secret of Sepp's past?
