If saying ‘I love you’ meant death, would you still say it?
The Wilted Rose, of faery-tale and folklore, is a pirate ship filled with unfortunate souls-each forbidden to love. One such soul is Valencia ‘Lennie’ Roux. Raised in a brothel and an heir to a curse; Lennie never expected to pique the interest of any man. Yet with the arrival of vivid-eyed Nathaniel, she is torn between wanting to know him better and fearing what that knowledge would mean.
With Nathaniel bringing the crew’s total to six, the Wilted Rose sets off in search of the remaining two heirs. They hope that in reuniting, they will convince the faery Sorceress responsible for the curse, to end it. However lurking beneath the water is a long standing enemy of the Wilted Rose; who is determined to thwart their quest and bring down its leaders.
Together the eight heirs fight for survival, friendship and love.
About the Author
Freedom is a twenty-something book hoarder with a fondness for all things vintage. She lives in rural Hampshire UK with a hotchpotch of family members, ponies and wonky bookshelves.
Creating stories has been a passion since before she can remember and she has been consciously been writing since she was 14 years old. An introverted and shy girl, Freedom found her voice in imaginary worlds and has continued to do so..
As the excitement of the night to come enveloped the ship and overpowered the tension; Iwatched from the side-lines, amused as the crew readied themselves. Davy had at least a dozen hats at his side. Trilbies, bowlers and flat caps, he tried them on one by one, setting them at jaunty angles and positioning his head left and right. Beside him, Butch tried to flatten his hair in the reflection of a tablespoon. Thinking he was the one most in need I joined him.“Here, let me,” I urged, pulling a bone handled comb from my pocket and set about untangling his straw coloured mess.“Thanks,” he said, lifting his makeshift mirror to get a better look at the results.I chuckled as I tucked the comb away, “Just find a decent barber when we get there”.
