The Heart of the Banshee

When Julia proves herself in combat, her prowess stirs both pride and concern in Branna.

But their fiercest challenge isn’t their enemies—it’s the growing love between them. Ghosts from Branna’s past and Julia’s mysterious behavior weave a web of mistrust. Both love and loyalty are tested as Captain Kelly and Julia Farrow navigate treacherous waters—where their greatest threat may lie within.

"The siren song of writing more of the adventures of my two favorite 18th century Sapphic pirates aboard the Banshee could not be ignored and I am thrilled to share with you Branna and Julia's next action-packed tale of romantic and heroic exploits.

It's not all lady pirates enjoying another lady's lady parts, mind you. This story is fraught with peril and drama as Julia taps into her inner swashbuckler and Branna wades out into the tempestuous waters of emotional maturity.

Genevieve and Gus, Jack and Merri, Nat, and some new faces all have their part to play as Captain Kelly and the crew of the Banshee take on Captain Shaw and the Ferryman in a battle of wits and wills—until they need to get stabby.

And because I forgot to mention it in the acknowledgments, my wee short story At Word's Point, available only from Bella Books, slots in the timeline right around the early pages of this story. It's not necessary to read first—or at all—but you should read it because it's cute and fun and costs, like, a buck.

There can be more Banshee adventures. Just let me know."
