Captain Geoffrey Thorpe is the terror of the Spanish Main, striking crippling blows against the oppressive Spanish war machine, freeing English slaves from the galley ships and filling England's coffers with Spanish gold--with the tacit approval of England's Queen Elizabeth I. When the dashing Thorpe raids and sinks a diplomatic vessel bringing ambassador Don José Alvarez de Cordoba and his beautiful niece Dona Maria to England, he's gentlemanly enough to deliver them safely onto English shores--along with the galley full of wrongfully imprisoned slaves.
