Setting: Tavali Wasturnum & Septurnum Nations

#1 International Bestselling Series

Mack Hinto came into the world in the middle of a vicious firefight— it’s said her own mother refused to leave her battle-station or cut the cord to her daughter until after they were safely away from the authorities out to end them. She’s happily lived her life in danger and turmoil ever since.

As a member of the Septurnum Tavali, Mack knows the face of her enemy like the back of her hand. So when she sees a chance to avenge her family’s honor by figuratively blackening Ryn Dane’s eye and stealing his Wasturnum cargo, she seizes it. What she never expects is the lengths the competing Tavali captain will go to, to reclaim his cargo . . . and his dignity.

The illegitimate son of the queen of a pirate guild and a murdered aristocrat, Ryn Dane has always been torn between two worlds and classes. Two destinies at war with each other. Because of that, there is nothing he hates more than politics and family feuds. Nothing more than treachery and duplicity. So when the woman who seduces him to steal his cargo turns out to be the daughter of his mother’s sworn enemy— whose family has a generational grudge-match against his own, his need for vengeance goes into overdrive. No one will play him for a fool, especially not over politics.

Yet Mack is a formidable force, and as war tears their universe apart, old enemies return pitting the two of them against each other. Now, if Ryn doesn’t find a way to make peace, more than just their lives will be at stake. The entire Tavali Nation will fall and millions of their citizens will die.

*Sherri apologizes for the delay in getting her books out. For those who haven’t heard, her life was torn apart during her divorce by an out-of-control judge and a corrupt judicial system that held her and her family hostage for more than two years and left her bankrupt and without a place to live while threatening to take away everything from her, including all her book rights, her freedom, and to force her to write for free to pay the unimaginable legal fees of those who were torturing her. Thankfully, her publisher is still behind her, but it will take some time for her to get back on a “normal” publishing schedule. Please be patient as Sherri and her publisher work together to get the books her fans love back into production and out to the fans who have been so eagerly waiting for them. As soon as we have release dates for them, we will let everyone know. 










The hero

The illegitimate son of Drux Cruel and Hermione "Kirren" Dane--a Tavali pirate, Ryn grew up split between the world of his mother and that of his regal father. While he loved his father, he despised living with him. Not only did Ryn have an angry stepmother who hated his guts to contend with, his uncle was no prize either. His father ran interference as best he could, but because of his duties, his father wasn't around much. As soon as Ryn...
