“LIEUTENANT SAMUEL BLACKWOOD (DECEASED)”
A Georgian Royal Navy Ghost Story
(contains male/male romance)

HMS Privet has the reputation of being a cursed ship: every first lieutenant serving aboard her dies gruesomely. Lieutenant Daniel Leigh is determined to solve the mystery and volunteers for the place himself, putting his life in desperate danger. Little does he suspect that he will fall in love with the captain, John Meadows, and end up fighting not only for his own life but for the soul of his lover too.

A Georgian ghost story featuring a cursed ship, a vengeful ghost, a haunted captain and a very daring lieutenant.
