I’m hosting a character interview for “No Quarter: Wenches” today. Thanks for visiting my blog!
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m the widow of the pirate Rowdy Belford and I had a son who ran off to be pirate like his father. As a fem-sole, I perform laundry services to make ends meet, as a pirate widow’s pension doesn’t pay the bills. And currently, I’m looking after Boots, Dr. Strangewayes’s cat.
What is your role in the story?
I start an underground movement against the mistreatment of women and slaves.
When and where were you happiest?
In the womb, I think. Yup, in the womb was nice.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
Proper drainage. Port Royal floods a lot.
On what occasion, do you lie?
I ain’t had the pleasure of a man’s company for some time now.
Tell us a bit about the old pirating days.
In the late ’70s and early ’80s, I sailed with the Samaná Bay Buccaneers, while they raided the Spanish Main chasing a treasure galleon under the pirate Laurens de Graaf. It was all fun and games until someone lost their eye, then their arm, and their head.
About the Book
Title: No Quarter: Wenches – Volume 1
Author: MJL Evans
Genre: Historical Romance
Volume 1 of 6 begins in 1689 Port Royal, Jamaica, where Atia Crisp is imprisoned, awaiting trial, while refugees from Strangewayes’s plantation seek their new home. Guided by Capitaine la Roche, they face pursuit by the pirate hunter Big Dick and the perilous terrain of Bocas del Toro. Their future home of Sérénité hangs in the balance, complicated by the outbreak of war with France.
The adventures from No Quarter: Dominium continue with wenches! In 1689, Atia Crisp finds herself imprisoned in the wickedest city on earth, Port Royal, Jamaica, while the refugees from Strangewayes’s plantation in the Blue Mountains are on the run and seeking a new home, deep in the Caribbean. Captain Jean-Paul la Roche must get them to safety and find a way to liberate the woman he loves while waging a war against the English with the pirate Laurens de Graaf.
While besieged people suffer and starve, a group of women form a secret and illegal society deep from within the bowels of the city called: WENCH. A network that deals with smugglers, merchants, cutthroats and thieves. Dragged into the struggle for supremacy of the Caribbean, the women are divided and find themselves engulfed in bloodshed. The pirates of Port Royal and former enemies may be their only hope of escape.
Hell hath no fury like a cross wench!
