Publisher's Summary

Port Royal, Jamaica 1692
Living in a city deemed the wickedest in the world is no easy task for Miss Juliana Dutton. To make matters worse, with an ailing father and a drunken fool for a brother, she is forced to take over the running of the family business in order to survive. When a nosey suitor threatens everything, she spurns him and instead becomes engaged to the town idiot, Lord Munthrope. But is he an idiot? The more her problems push her closer to the man, the more she realizes he is not who he seems.
Alexander Hyde, the Pirate Earl, is the most feared pirate in the Caribbean - feared, successful, wealthy, handsome, and bored, so terribly bored. When an unexpected event allows him to get close to Juliana, a woman he has loved from afar for years, he takes it. But leading a double life causes more problems than it's worth. A restless crew and a long-time enemy out to capture and hang Alex, put Juliana in grave danger.
As tremors rock the city of Port Royal, Juliana's faith in God is equally shaken. Not only have things gotten worse, but she is confused by her feelings for both Munthrope and the Pirate Earl. Deception, intrigue, mutiny, death, betrayal, all attempt to tear the lovers apart. But the final blow comes when a massive earthquake strikes the city and threatens to sink it into the sea.

Great Plot Showcasing Amazing Grace

Christian Pirates? Yes! And it works. It's fun, captivating, entertaining and redeeming. MaryLu Tyndall created Christian characters we know in life, dropped them into the pirate world and showed how God works all things for our good when Satan tries to destroy--even for a pirate. The Narrator gives an excellent performance of all voices.

Juliana Dutton strives to do enough good works to secure the answers to her prayers for her failing father a drunken brother, the family shipping business and an orphanage full of children. But her answers are not necessarily God's answers. When a nosey suitor threatens everything, she spurns him and pretends engagement to the town idiot, Lord Munthrope.

Munthrope (Alexander Hyde, the Pirate Earl in disguise) is the most feared pirate in the Caribbean - feared, successful, wealthy, handsome, and bored, falls in love with Juliana. Alex's flight from God and his own perceived failure finds him rich in wealth but bankrupt spiritually. Left facing death with no help from God, the couple finds God's ransom for their soul and His plans for them is timed perfectly. If you like the swashbuckler story and like stories that show real people in and out of a real relationship with God, you will love The Ransom.

Inspirational Pirate Romance - YES!

I love pirates, and clean, engaging historical romance stories. This is a perfect blend! I read this a few years ago, and recently downloaded it on audible. This book kept my imagination busy and happy while I mowed the lawn, cleaned the kitchen and caught up on laundry. I've never enjoyed housework so much :)
