The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates

The Buccaneer’s Code

The swashbuckling sequel to THE TERROR OF THE SOUTHLANDS in the THE VERY NEARLY HONORABLE LEAGUE OF PIRATES series!

Hilary Westfield is a freelance pirate now. She’s perfectly content using her cutlass to slice up the drapery in her mother’s drawing room, and she certainly wants nothing to do with the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates, the entirely dishonorable Captain Blacktooth, or his villainous band of Mutineers.
As villains often do, however, the Mutineers have plans of their own. When they threaten the entire kingdom, Hilary is recruited to take control of the pirate league and send Captain Blacktooth into exile. With her trusty gargoyle, her former governess, and a few loyal pirates by her side, armed with a magic gravy boat and the Official VNHLP Guide to Leading the League (5th edition), she sets off on a High Seas adventure that’s occasionally disastrous, often hilarious, and far too full of molasses. Is Hilary a good enough pirate to save the kingdom, restore honor to the VNHLP, and defeat the Mutineers in battle once and for all? One thing is certain: She’ll need plenty of High Society girls, Enchantresses, human cannonballs, reformed villains, overprotective mothers, and good friends to help her do it.
