The Restitution
M. L. Tyndall

Shunned by her parents and by society, Lady Isabel Ashton lives a secluded life at Port Royal with her seven month old baby, Frederick–the son of the fierce pirate, Kent Carlton. When her baby is suddenly kidnapped, Captain Carlton appears with an offer to help her find him. Can Isabel trust the man who once ravished her? Will Kent win the forgiveness of the woman he loves? Or will the scheme of betrayal and revenge of his enemies keep them apart and from their son forever?

MaryLu Tyndalls’s lush descriptions of exotic ports and her fresh approach to pirates captured my attention from the first word and held it to the very end. Her flawed characters continued their journeys in search of their goals, yet maintained such realism and emotion that I ached along with them. This action-packed novel delivered breathtaking scenes that had me on the edge of my seat awaiting the final outcome. The characters’ believable spiritual journeys showed forgiveness isn’t easy, but necessary in order to put their pasts to rest.

The Restitution, given four stars by Romantic Times, is the third book in the Legacy of the King’s Pirates series. Readers of the first two books were introduced to the characters already, but this book was my first introduction to both MaryLu and her books.

A fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, I was intrigued by the premise of MaryLu Tyndall’s “Legacy of the King’s Pirates” series. I don’t usually read historical fiction, so I was surprised by my desire to finish The Restitution in one sitting. Not the best choice when dinner needs to be made. 🙂 I’m eager to read the first two books in the series, knowing they will not be a disappointment. I’m always excited to find new authors and MaryLu Tyndall’s The Legacy of the King’s Pirates series already has a home on my shelves.

I invite you to visit MaryLu’s website and participate in her September blog tour to learn more about her work and writing journey. You will not be disappointed!
