The Spirit of the Autumn Wind
by Dorae Shae

Set in post-World War II Morocco, Ireland, and the Mediterranean, The Spirit of the Autumn Wind is a high-seas adventure brimming with mystery and romance.

When respected sea captain Regan Quinn and his lifelong friend, Niko, are accidentally involved in the murder of a drug lord’s son in a back alley in Tangiers, they fear for their lives and must flee on separate ships. They make a plan to meet up in Ireland, where they hope to leave the past behind and start a new life. Niko hides out working as a galley cook aboard the Autumn Wind, where he is entrusted with the care of Regan Quinn’s son, Christos, and must keep him, as well as a young family being smuggled aboard, safe from an unstable captain and the vengeful drug lords pursuing the ship. Regan Quinn, captain on the Seaward Angel, finds himself in a dangerous dilemma as he falls in love with Loren Lombardi, an attractive undercover investigator on board with a mission to prove he is guilty of murder.

As the two ships sail toward their final destinations, danger and intrigue ensue while the colourful cast of characters, desperate to find answers and a safe place to land, must band together to survive.
