The Reckoning

"The Reckoning"
MaryLu Tyndall
Legacy of the King's Pirate - Book Five

When Morgan Shaw crept into the hold of an old pirate ship replica at San Diego’s Annual Tall Ship Festival, her only intention was to avoid the guy who had just dumped her and who was now boarding the ship with two women on his arm. What she didn’t expect was to wake up aboard a real pirate ship three-hundred years in the past. But of course, it wasn’t real. Her wealthy father had obviously staged it all in an effort to get her mind off her upcoming chemo. Or had he?  

Rowan Dutton seeks enough treasure to repay a debt to his sister and reinstate the Dutton name among British Jamaican Society. He is but one major haul away from accomplishing his goal when a strange woman appears on his ship and causes him to lose his prey. Despite his anger, he is enthralled with the little minx, her strange clothing, odd speech, and her insistence that they are all actors playing a charade paid for by her father. 

Yet when the brazen little lady divulges Rowan’s secret to a longtime nemesis, events are triggered that could cost them both their lives and change the course of history forever.

My Review

“The Reckoning” the FIFTH book to the series “Legacy of the Kings Pirate” by MaryLu Tyndall!  It all starts when a young lady, Morgan Shaw, was invited to spend the day at a Tall Ship Festival with some friends in the year 2015.  Only thing is that Morgan is having many different problems from anxiety to OCD all the way to cancer where she doesn’t want to do anything but deal with her problems.  Boarding a replica tall ship with her friends, she hides away from everyone.  Though when she comes out of her hiding she finds herself in the year 1694 in the midst of Rowan Dutton.  Rowan, a pirate and womanizer, is out seeking treasure to repay a debt to his sister, only to find Morgan has somehow come stowed away on his ship making things more complicated in his quest.

I have very much enjoyed reading this fifth historical romance novel to the series “Legacy of the Kings Pirate”.  When I saw Morgan was somehow transported back to 1694, lots of questions went through my mind. How is she going to get back home to her time period?  With her being in the past how will it affect the future?  Will she want to stay or want to return home?  With Morgan’s different problems how was she going to function without any medication or treatment?  Then would Morgan have any affect on Rowan if he were going to change his ways in pirating or not?  Overall, I had to keep on reading to see weather or not Morgan and Rowan would trust in God with the events to come and in their own abilities.
