Peril on the sea
Author: Cadnum, Michael.
"It is the summer of 1588 and the privateer Vixen is sailing directly toward the Spanish Armada. At the helm is Brandon Fletcher, one of England's most notorious pirates. On board are the aspiring young author Sherwin Morris and the beautiful noblewoman Katharine Westing. ... In spite of vowing to avoid the conflict, Fletcher finds himself bracing for battle alongside other English vessels. The fight will be harrowing and bloody, and the unfolding tumult will challenge the character of everyone on board--including Sherwin and Katharine, who are about to discover the deeper meaning of both strife and honor."--Jacket.
