The Pirate Captain, Chronicles of a Legend 

 "Not all treasure does silver, nor gold make."    
  

NOR SILVER - 2013 
Having lost hearth and heart to Scotland's "Jacobite" Uprising, Cate Mackenzie, a fugitive war criminal, purchases passage on a ship bound for the West Indies. En route she is kidnapped-a case of mistaken identity-by Captain Nathanael Blacktorne, the Pirate Captain. Accustomed to blood, musket and cannon, life aboard the pirate ship isn't the hell Cate expects. She is instantly drawn into Nathan's bloody rivalry against Lord Breaston Creswicke-the man who forced Nathan into piracy-and Commodore Roger Harte, Creswicke's puppet. They are an "unholy alliance" of ambition and possession, Nathan is a rat terrier on their heels. The impending arrival of Creswicke's finance is too much temptation. This is a story of two scarred people blinded by their defenses and trust or rather the lack of trust and will Providence ever smile on them again.

"Anything" becomes your creed."

Captain Nathanael Blackthorne introduces "Nor Silver":

"Me hair is silver and me bones creak, but me cock still rises and I remember why.

Wisdom of the ages you seek, lad?

I offer but one word: treasure.

At what price does this treasure come, you ask, for not all does silver and gold make?

To pose the question means you've not found yours, for when you do, "tis no longer a question of the cost to keep it.

 
NOR GOLD -2014 
"Nor Gold" picks up where "Nor Silver" leaves off, with Cate Mackenzie, a woman who has lost everything to the Jacobite Uprising and is forced to sail with pirates; she is still searching for what she desires above all else: a place to belong. While Pirate Captain Nathanael Blackthorne of the Ciara Morganse finds that his past is catching up with him and is embroiled in a quest of revenge, he goes from playing guardian angel to an avenging one. Thomas, Captain of the pirate ship the Griselle must choose between a best friend or his best hope for happiness. This is a story of what two perhaps three people will do to hold on to and keep their treasure. 
Captain Nathanael Blackthorne introduces "Nor Gold": 
One shouldn't be obliged to apologize for living when one hadn't expected to live, when one had expected death any day. . . and would have welcomed it. 
 
One can't be rebuked for bad choices when there had been no choice to be had.
 
Wise decisions, clever courses steered, untold reefs and hazards avoided, the stuff of legends now become the stuff or retribution and remorse. 
 
At what point did yesterday become a lifetime?
After all, the past is the past. . isn't it?
