A PIRATE, A SECRET AND ROSE by AYSEL ARWEN
Dark and mysterious, Abdeldjelil "DJ" had no idea that the beautiful woman with the rosy lips that he had just saved from certain death would soon be his savior in more ways than one. Having adopted the life of both merchant and pirate aboard the Ocean Chameleon, DJ still could not remember his days prior to being kidnapped and pressed into service by enemies of the barbary pirates. But he knew there was something very important about his past. He just could not remember what it was.
Bound for the fledgling islands of Hawaii, Neptune's chariot carried its precious cargo out of Boston Bay and into the arms of a notorious pirate and a raging storm that threatened to rip the ships apart. Blown off course and into the area known as the Bermuda Triangle, death is the price that is exacted for the survival of just a few seamen and passengers. But there is a secret still on board that could change that fate of mankind forever, if an untimely death does not carry it to the grave.
Rescued by a man chiseled out of the darkness of a moonlit night, Rose cannot deny that he stirs her blood with a glance and boils it with a mere touch. But, the man disappears moments after he saves her, and then washes up only a few breaths away from death on the shore of a deserted island right after their ship is almost destroyed in a violent storm. Shipwrecked, the two must face their past, the present and their future if they are to survive the many unknown dangers that lurk in their new island home.
