There’s something about school vacations that makes me want to read ALL the books. Luckily for me, I have a huge pile of them on my Kindle, just begging to be read. The first one I decided to tackle was Cutlass by the fabulous T.M. Franklin. The story of a girl looking for revenge, and the bloodthirsty pirate who she believes is responsible for taking her father’s life, Cutlass is a romp of a story that will magic you away to the Caribbean islands, with a sword in one hand and a flagon of rum in the other! I highly recommend it. If you want to know more, and to find out the buy links, see below! And remember to scroll down to see my review at the bottom of the page.
CUTLASS by T.M. Franklin is NOW AVAILABLE!
Author: T.M. Franklin
Genre: Historical Adventure/Romance
Release Date: August 7, 2017
A quest for vengeance.
A high-stakes treasure hunt.
An attraction they both try to deny.
Convinced One-Eyed Jack Tremayne killed her father and stole his prized cutlass, Sarina Talbot sneaks aboard the pirate’s ship to exact her revenge. To her surprise, she’s met by a declaration of innocence and an offer of help. She doesn’t trust him, and he doesn’t trust anybody. But they need each other to catch the killer and beat their enemies to a hidden cache of Aztec gold.
They’re not the only treasure-seekers, however, and there’s a traitor in their midst.
Caught between Crown ships and enemy pirates, Sarina and Jack discover a prize greater than gold as their uneasy alliance leads them on the adventure of a lifetime.
T.M. Franklin writes stories of adventure, romance, & a little magic. A former TV news producer, she decided making stuff up was more fun than reporting the facts. Her first published novel, MORE, was born during National Novel Writing month, a challenge to write a novel in thirty days. MORE was well-received, being selected as a finalist in the 2013 Kindle Book Review Best Indie Book Awards, as well as winning the Suspense/Thriller division of the Blogger Book Fair Reader’s Choice Awards. She’s since written four additional novels and several best-selling short stories…and there’s always more on the way.

When I was sixteen years old (a while ago now…) I visited Disneyworld for the first time. And my overriding memory of that trip was the Pirates of the Carribean ride. This was long before the movie was made, and long before Jonny Depp made Pirates cool again. But still, for a few minutes that ride transported me to a Carribean world full of rum and treasure, and pirates that not only fought for their treasures, but found great enjoyment in it, too.
For me, Cutlass by T.M. Franklin was the book equivalent of that ride, and I mean that in the most favourable way. It tells the story of Jonathan ‘One-Eyed-Jack’ Tremayne – a sexy pirate whose use of leather breeches made me very flushed – and Sarina ‘Wild Rina’ Talbot, the girl who seeks vengeance against the pirate captain for her father’s death. Along the way there’s a soothsaying witch, a quest for treasure, and an epic adventure that left me breathless.
Well written, with characters you’ll be rooting for (or against!) and a story that keeps you turning the pages, Cutlass was a wonderful read.
