Dread Pirate Fleur and the Ruby Heart




A death and a dark family secret see the orphaned Fleur finding her sea legs and a thirst for adventure in this brooding and brilliant book from an exciting new talent.

Moments before he is murdered, Fleur’s father tells her the terrible secret of who he really is. Now orphaned, Fleur has little choice but to leave her home and join the man who comes to claim her – her estranged uncle, William Hart. But William is a terrifying and ruthless pirate and Fleur is thrust into life on board the Libertine. Living amongst a devilish crew of battle-hardened buccaneers is dangerous for a young girl and earning their respect seems impossible. But Hart blood runs in Fleur’s veins and when she gets the chance to avenge her father’s death she might just prove to be the fiercest pirate of them all …
