Helen Hollick's 2011 Blog Tour is officially underway. "Roundheads and Ramblings' is the third stop, and I'm looking forward to welcoming her here on Wednesday, July 6th. Jesamiah will be welcome, too, provided he is reasonably sober and has had a bath within the last month. (No guarantees of that, I understand.) Helen is generously offering a GIVEAWAY to my readers. Everyone who leaves a comment and an e-mail address on the day of her visit will be entered into a random drawing for a copy of the first book in her pirate series, Sea Witch. Don't miss a chance to get a free copy of this romantic and rousing read. it's just the thing for a hot summer's day.
In the meantime, here's a blurb on book number three:

Back cover blurb :
Jesamiah Acorne, Captain of the Sea Witch, has accepted a pardon of amnesty against his misdeeds of piracy, but old enemies do not forget the past. In particular Edward Teach – Blackbeard himself – has a bone to pick with Acorne.
Following an indiscretion with an old flame, Jesamiah finds his fiancée, the midwife and white witch, Tiola Oldstagh, has gone to North Carolina to help with a difficult birth: the problem, that is where Blackbeard now resides. He must not discover that Tiola is Jesamiah’s woman. She will have to hide her gift of Craft from the black-hearted pirate who has sold his soul to the devil.
With Sea Witch damaged and himself wounded, Jesamiah must take stock of the situation – but arrested for acts of piracy how is he to clear his name, avoid the noose, keep Tiola safe and put an end to Blackbeard - all while being haunted by the ghost of his father?
From the Bahamas to North Carolina and Williamsburg in Virginia Bring It Close moves at a swashbuckling pace. There is intrigue, misunderstandings, romance and adventure – all wrapped up in a blend of supernatural fantasy and a sailor’s yarn of a good read!
What readers are saying:
‘Just wanted to let you know I’ve just finished Bring It Close last night and hated to see it end! And what an ending! Wow, Jesamiah’s father! What a surprise that was! The entire book was fascinating and Jesamiah is just such a bad boy, and so smart, and lucky, and sexy! I just love him and Tiola together! This 3 installment to the series is just great and I don’t know what more to say other than it keeps you on the edge of your seat, laughing, crying, horrified (Blackbeard), and so very interested! I can see each chapter playing out as if I were actually there! Thank you so much for such wonderful reading enjoyment!’ Sue
