Description

"Cinematographic with escapes, kidnapping, galloping sword play, and a breathless elopement."
-THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

The most daring, dashing hero of all

"Mad Nicholas" to his friends, "Scourge of Spain" to his enemies, Sir Nicholas Beauvallet is one of Queen Elizabeth's most dashing buccaneers and has never been known to resist a challenge.

A Spanish lady all fire and heart

When Beauvallet captures the galleon carrying Dona Dominica de Rada y Sylvan and her father, he vows to return them safely to the shores of Spain. But he has no sooner done so than he proposes a venture more reckless than any of his exploits on the high seas-he will return to Spain, where there's a price on his head, and claim Dominica as his bride...
