Giveaway #4 - Sandra Sookoo

For Giveaway #4, I would like to welcome Author Sandra Sookoo. Welcome Sandra!


Thanks for having me on your blog today. It looks like a great party!

Let’s talk stories. I’ve always been a big fan of adventure-type stories. Swords, quests, caravans with camels, mummies, bad guys, whatever the author can conjure up, I’ll read it. Throw in a bit of suspense or romance and I’m as happy as a clam.

I think that’s a big reason of why I became a writer. To pen the types of stories I sometimes couldn’t find out there in the market place.

That’s exactly why I wrote my latest release ACT OF PARDON. I’ve been fascinated by pirates all my life, and to write about them was just too much fun. If you’re a fan of adventure romance with privateers, sword fights, sea battles and searing love scenes, this book is for you!

Here’s the blurb: Retribution and sorrow can bring redemption and salvation if you look hard enough.

The year is 1814 and piracy is drawing to an end in the Caribbean yet Sarah Covington, a disenchanted missionary's daughter, has a plan to kill the pirate who murdered her father and fiancĂ©. When the assassination attempt goes horribly wrong, she’s taken aboard the Lady Catherine as prisoner. Though she’s forced to embrace a life of degradation and subservience by the very pirate she tried to kill, he stirs passions she never knew she harbored.

Adrian Westerbrooke captains the Lady Catherine but not by choice. Officially a privateer under England's protection, he has his own agenda and will take down targets for the highest bidder. The only problem is the beautifully flawed Sarah. He'll try everything in his power to break her spirit and make her bow before his. At sea, his word is law, no matter how much she intrigues his mind and inflames his body.

Yet Sarah possesses a stubbornness that matches his own, on deck and in the bedroom, and a battle of wills begins. As trust grows, so does their desire--whether they can survive the threats at sea while working through their differences is up to faith… and perhaps love.
