William “Bump” Quinn is now the Captain of the infamous pirate ship the Scarlet Night that he grew up on. Jian Jun is Captain of a vast pirate army in China. When Bump unexpectedly finds himself the soul survivor of his ship, after a vicious storm destroys all that he holds dear, he finds himself a guest of Jian Jun. Surrounded in danger Bump is presented with a treasure beyond his wildest dreams but is it worth risking his soul?
The heroes and heroines of Lisa A. Olech’s Captains of the Scarlet Night series are given a swan song worthy of the conclusion of this extraordinary series in Within A Captain’s Soul. Book five told the story of a beloved secondary character in this series, William “Bump” Quinn, a deaf, mute orphan adopted by previous Captains Gavin and Alice “Tupper” Quinn. Ms. Olech nurtured Bump through numerous books into the kind of man to be admired and looked up to and in doing so made the ideal romance hero. Bump was a unique and multifaceted character that withstood the test of this series as they both matured. Jian Jun was a great surprise and a fabulous heroine with her challenging past and empowered persona. In the merciless world of pirates Bump and Jun were strong when needed as well as tender, giving them a beautiful contrast in their roles. This author reached far and took chances on characters that many writers might pass over as being too different yet in giving them center stage made memorable and finely crafted portrayals. Within A Captain’s Soul is the kind of book that lingers as old friends move on to their well-deserved happy endings and embark on their new beginnings, a standout read!
