Roanna LeRoux has many names: Lady Luck, Sin of the Sahirah, the Captain of Fortune. But her secret to success as a pirate has nothing to do with luck. Roanna can manipulate water and scry into her future.
When she sets her sights on a marvel of a ship, she finds herself with a valuable prize, Prince Emery Revier, second son of the king. Alive, he’s worth a fortune.
Someone else wants him dead.
To protect her investment, Roanna teams up with Emery to stop the coup against his family. Her scheme for wealth turns into a lust for vengeance when everything goes wrong in a way not even she could foresee.
Thank you for showing interest so far! Captain of Fortune is a fantasy adventure on the high seas, full of pirates, royalty, magic and heists. It features a wide cast of characters and several POVs throughout, and is targeted at an adult audience for language, violence, and sex (language probably being the worst offender). This version is the second-ish draft, 114,000 words, and ready for critique.
I’m not looking for deep critiques analyzing every page, unless that’s just how you beta, then feel free. But it’s not what I’m asking for. Read the story. I’ll probably have a couple questions every few chapters, but nothing insane. Give me honest feedback. There’s been a lot of changes since the last draft, so I’m looking for big-picture issues.
If you’re intrigued but still not sure, feel free to read the first few pages here.
If you’re ready to dive into a wild pirate adventure, please send me a message so we can get this started!
Thanks for reading!
