He’s been tasked to protect her, but his heart has become far too involved.
Angelina de la Fuente Delgado, the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is on her way home from a trip to Spain when her ship is attacked by pirates.

Brian O’Doule was sent by Angelina’s father to protect her, but keeping her safe among the dangers of the sea is as hard as concealing his love that’s been growing for years. When they’re kidnapped by pirates, he does everything in his power to protect the women and to find a way for them all to escape. Will Angelina ever see her home and her beloved father again? Or will she be forced to marry the fierce pirate captain?

More from Lena
I’ve been a lover of history for decades. In college and graduate school, all my elective courses were history. Of course, I chose the countries and eras I wanted to learn about. When I began writing novels, my first one was a contemporary story. After that at least 75% or more of my novels have been historical, all the way from 1805 through the early 21st century.
Several decades ago, I read about a tavern in New Orleans that had been there since the late 1700s. I found that fascinating, so I researched it and found the history of the place interesting. It was Pirate’s Prize. I don’t know if it is still there after all the recent hurricanes.
When I was writing A Heart’s Forever Home, book 3 in my Love’s Road Home series, I wrote some of the heroine’s family history from the characters in A Heart’s Rescue. If you read book 3, you’ll be glad to learn even more about those characters who were ancestors of some of the characters in book 3.

The Parent’s Battle Plan Epic Book Launch
About the Book
Book: The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal
Author: Laine Lawson Craft
Release date: March 14, 2023
You are not alone–there is hope and healing for every hurting heart.
Today’s technology has made sinful experiences and deadly choices accessible to our teenagers and young adults with just a click. And parents are left with the disappointments–and devastating fallout–of their children’s choices.
Through sharing her own story of praying three very wayward prodigals home, Laine Lawson Craft offers not only hope and insight, but also a practical, tried-and-true battle plan for parents walking this heartbreaking season of life. You’ll discover how to
You can win the war of darkness over your children–even when you don’t get the miracle you asked for.
The Parents Battle Plan Excerpt 5
We fail to imagine our children being arrested or fighting a depression that is so deeply
engrained that suicidal thoughts are a daily occurrence. We simply do not see any of it coming.
Perhaps you have a child, like mine, who had begun living in the way you had hoped, but who
has now made bad choices.
Our story begins with me sitting in my recliner on Mother’s Day sobbing hysterically.
My dreams and aspirations for all my children lay in tattered pieces. Truly awful thoughts were
circling over and over in my mind. Are my children going to survive? Will they live to be 25 years
old? Will my sons end up dead, addicted or in prison? Will my daughter find true happiness and
worth? My heart was shattered into a million pieces. I did not know how I could go on, but I
knew that I somehow had to keep moving.
I know from experience that there is nothing worse than watching our children fall
backward unexpectedly from the path we prayed for daily. The disappointment can be
paralyzing. The children we once knew seem to have all but disappeared. Gone are the joy,
laughter, trust and hopeful future we spent so much time daydreaming about.
