|Covery design by Shandra Kay!|
Despite a contract on her head, lone Drug Enforcement Agent, Aliyana Montijo must ferret out a mole and stop the assassination of top DEA officials, as so ordered by the Colombian drug lord she seeks to take down. The task is a daunting one, for there is no one she can trust. No one that is, until she encounters a most unlikely ally.
Former seventeenth century captain of the Dutch West Indies Company, Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, now from a parallel dimension, encounters the beautiful agent during an unearthly storm in the
triangle. Drawn to the Spanish beauty he rescues, he pledges his assistance,
despite her reluctance to accept either his help or his heart.

Wolf stood at the helm, his gaze fixed, but not seeing. The fierce wind they’d battled during the storm finally abated. Yet, it continued to haunt him. More than once, he fancied he heard the sound of her voice in the billowing breeze. Each time the experience renewed his pain. He shook his head in despair, took in a deep breath of salty air, and slowly released it.
“Oh, Wolf! You promised you wouldn’t leave me… You promised…”
Those words echoed first inside his mind, and then resounded throughout his entire being. This time, he could hear her anguish and it matched his own.
“Please. Please don’t leave me…” a heart-wrenching sob followed the mournful words
Call him crazy, but those pitiful words sounded as if they drifted into his mind from the west. His heart pounded against his chest as he mulled over a possible reason for the strange phenomena. He tossed it aside as absurd. For surely he wanted to believe so much that she didn’t perish in Cartagena— Wolf paused and for a moment, he reconsidered the impossible notion. But then again, he’d seen impossible before in the guise of a lovely witch. Suddenly, he had to know.
He whirled the wheel all the way to the right, turning headlong into a favorable wind. One way or the other, he needed to find out if Aliyana still lived. Startled gazes shot toward him as they abruptly changed direction.
“Wolf! What do you think you’re doing?” Joris hollered as he strode toward him. He could see the concern etched in his face.
He firmed his jaw and said, “I’m going after Aliyana.”
