Captain of Fortune

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!

  1. Hi! This sounds like a great story. What kind of time frame are you looking at for betas? I have another book I’m supposed to be betaing this month and also writing my own so not sure when I’d get around to it but I’d be happy to read it by the end if Feb if that’s good for you 🙂
    Let me know if you’d like.

    1. I have six readers as of now, and I expect them to be done by the end of January. Would you be looking to start the beginning of Feb? That could work for me, unless I need to make more sizable changes. Send me a message at sorayacorcoran90 at gmail or my twitter, so we can keep each other updated.


      1. Hi sorry I’ve been really ill these last few days so couldn’t reply sooner. If you have enough beta readers now that’s great. I’m honestly not sure when if I could read it for the beginning of Feb as it depends on my health but if you do want another reader I can add you on Twitter and let you know over the next couple of weeks. Of course if you do make big changes then I’d be happy to help at a later date too 🙂
