“LOST TREASURES OF THE HEART”
The first book in the “TREASURES OF THE TIDES” trilogy, a new Blended Genre series by Charlene Keel and Charlie Most, mixes contemporary drama and historical adventure with the paranormal as it crosses back and forth through time, from the age of technology to the age of pirates.
After architect Jonathan West learns his wife has been unfaithful, he goes fishing in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, trying to figure out what to do about his marriage. He’s shocked when he sees a ghost ship with a spectral woman on board—and she’s staring at him, a haunting plea in her eyes. In an old sea chest that washes ashore, he finds a journal and a miniature portrait belonging to Kate Russell, captain of the Royal Thomas, which sank in 1721. It’s the same woman Jonathan saw on the ghost ship, and her journal describes in her own words a life of piracy and sweeping romance. As past and present collide, Jonathan starts seeing Kate everywhere. He knows she wants something from him and believes if he can find a way to help her, her spirit will finally rest.
