The Ransom

"The Ransom"

Family and Fortune Betrayed Her. Would Fate Do The Same?

Port Royal, Jamaica 1692

Living in a city deemed the wickedest in the world is no easy task for Miss Juliana Dutton.  To Make matters worse, with an ailing father and a drunken fool for a brother, she is forced to take over the running of the family business in order to survive.  When a meddlesome suitor threatens to discover her secret and cast them all onto the streets, she agrees to a spurious engagement with the town buffoon, Lord Munthrope.  She only hopes the man is trustworthy.
The Pirate Earl, Alexander Hyde, son of the infamous Captain Edmund Merrick Hyde, is the most feared pirate in Port Royal.  Disillusioned with the religion of his parents and the pleasures of the world, Alex staves off his emptiness by leading a dual life to hide his deepest secrets.

A long-time enemy is out to destroy Alex and take Juliana for his own.  Struggling to maintain her faith in the Divine, Juliana faces her problems bravely, but the harder she tries, the more it seems everything is working against her.  Unwittingly, she and her weak fianc√© become entangled in the hostility between the Pirate Earl and his enemy, while even more dangerous forces are rising up to destroy them all.

My Review


After three years of publishing the first three books to the series “Legacy of the King’s Pirate” MaryLu Tyndall writes a fourth outstanding swashbuckling novel to this thrilling series, "The Ransom"!  Like her other novels, I had a very hard time putting this novel down.  This exciting adventure takes place in the year 1692 in the meanest city Port Royal, Jamaica.  Secretly, Miss Juliana Dutton is trying to keep her father’s business afloat while her father is extremely ill and her twin brother does nothing to help, but get drunk and gamble away anything.  The son of Merrick and Charlisse Hyde, Alexander Hyde, lives his life by leading a double life to hide certain deep secrets from society.  Will each choice or action Juliana and Alexander take through life either turn against or backfire on them? Only reading through this God-inspiring novel, see how each character comes to grip in trusting in their own path to what will be best for them or if they trust in the Lord to show them their rightful path!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6
