Review: Captain Merric by Rebecca Cohen


Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design
Length: 55,000 words approx.

A tale of pirates, lost love, and the fight for a happy ending.

After he’s set adrift and left to die by his mutinous crew, the last person Royal Navy officer Daniel Horton expects to come to his rescue is Captain Merric. An infamous pirate, Merric is known as much for stealing his victims’ hearts as their jewels. Daniel’s world is about to be turned upside down when he recognises Captain Merric as none other than Edward Merriston, someone he thought he’d never see again.
Edward can’t believe Daniel Horton is aboard his ship. While Edward is willing to do anything he can to get a second chance at their happy ending, Daniel isn’t interested in digging up the past. But Daniel is one priceless treasure Captain Merric isn’t about to let go of without a fight.

Captain Merric first appeared as short story in a pirate-themed anthology. Now completely rewritten and extended he is ready to set sail again.

My Review ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

From murder to mutiny to castaway to rescue by pirates, Captain Daniel Horton’s fortunes shift from bad to worse. It should be the final straw in the distinguished career of this Royal Navy man, but Fortune is a fickle mistress and the man who captains the pirate ship is Daniel’s former lover. Captain Merric has a rake’s reputation—seducing the sons of British lords left and right, and he’s already broken Daniel’s heart once before.

This is an amusing story, an entertaining escape into Daniel and Captain Merric’s world of rum and rediscovery. Merric would not hurt Daniel for all the world, though Daniel must behave a certain way in order to keep from being hurt by Merric’s men. It’s a tangled emotional skein of hiding their true feelings from others and from each other, and the untangling of the lovers’ troubles is a satisfying read.

  1. Congrats, this sounds great. I love pirate stories. As a kid (after reading Treasure Island, etc.), I loved swashbuckling with a stick as a sword and a rope swing my halyard. I love historicals, pirates’ roguish nature, and then when I found out about GAY pirate stories, oh my! – Purple Reader,
