Black Jack Rhys was the fiercest pirate to ever sail the seven seas. Men feared to mention his name lest it summon him up from the very bowels of hell. But to the women who knew him, Jack Rhys was a playful seducer who enjoyed thwarting the authorities out to trap him.
Jack was originally supposed to be a walk on, secondary character. But from the moment he appeared, Sherrilyn knew he had to have his own book. His character was too vivid and his story too good to go untold.
