The Rum Runner's Woman
Whiskey, Guns and Mr. Wrong. The Rum Runner's Woman is a romance set during the days of Prohibition in America. Captain Eric Bolene is a nervy daredevil and expert seaman who courts serious peril on the high seas as he engages in that very special form of American outlawry - rum running. In a schooner too fast to catch he outwits, outruns and outfights the United States Coast Guard. Intelligent, brave and cunning he has made a fortune in the illegal liquor trade. The lusty outlaw leads a life of devil-may-care until the day he anchors his schooner, Black Heart, at Okracoke, Isle, North Carolina, where he meets May Kaney. May Kaney is a sensual nineteen year old, raven haired, sapphire-eyed beauty trapped on the island by poverty and forced by her abusive, alcoholic father into a life of unending toil as a server in a speakeasy. When the local bootlegger tries to rape her she manages to escape. When he vows to keep trying until he succeeds she is forced to commit a desperate act. May hides on a runner's schooner and ends up at sea with a crew of dangerous men and in the arms of a handsome and virile stranger. Hot Dang! Spice up your weekend with the Rum Runner's Woman - a tantalizing journey to the rip-roaring days of Prohibition when mobsters, bootleggers, and rum runner's waged an all-out war with the Federal Government and the United States Coast Guard.
