The Devil’s Luck
Lust and discovery, betrayal and secrets in the age of sail.
Oh yes, and pirates. Dirty, dirty pirates.
Travel back to the Golden Age of Piracy where bodices were ripped, timbers were shivered, and we all pretend, for the sake of naughty books, that hygiene was a great deal better than it was.
Hannah Collingwood is ready to sail from Bristol on The Mourning Dove and start a new life in the colonies. A villainous doctor has other plans for her, though, and they begin with smuggling her aboard the ship of the notorious pirate, Black Edmund.
When Edmund Blackburn, captain of The Devil’s Luck, and Benjamin Till, the ship’s quartermaster insist the window “earn her keep”, Hannah faces a new reality: this is a ship full of Very Bad Men. The sort who do Very Bad Things and expect to get away with it. Now she isn’t sure what’s more terrifying: the scandalous demands they make, or the way she begins to counter their knavery with advances of her own.
Watching the prim but lovely widow struggle with her own desires is entertaining for a time, but before Edmund and Benjamin know it, sport turns into distraction. Hannah Collingwood is having her own inconvenient effects on the men, and none they’d care to admit.
The waters grow more turbulent still when Edmund uncovers a sordid connection between his family and Hannah’s—one he can never let her know about.
All he needs to do to continue enjoying the pleasure of her company is guard this ugly little secret. The only things at stake are ten years’ worth of plans and his oldest friendship with Benjamin. What could possibly go wrong?

What Readers Are Saying:
“I don’t want to gush, but… HOLY hot roses! This book is so good! I’d read her work before, but I was really stunned by the quality of the writing— it’s some of the best writing I’ve read in ANY genre. It’s well-researched, the story is compelling, the characters are terrific (I have a serious crush on Benjamin), and all of the above act as a believable backdrop for some very hot sex scenes. I was actually surprised by the sheer wealth of sex scenes, as well as the author’s ability to integrate them seamlessly into the story. It never feels unnatural.
Fair warning: Do NOT try reading this at work!“
“I found myself staying up WAY TOO LATE because this book is HOT. But it’s not just a bodice ripper of sexy proportions, no, each character actually has (Dare I say it about erotica?) … development! A back story! Emotions and characteristics that make you care about them! … The end is also super badass and made me want to high five my kindle. You’ll love it, I swear.”
“… apart from the juicy sexytimes that I want to savour forever, we also have a feisty female lead who thank goodness isn’t a meek annoying woman (can’t stand those), a brilliantly well written plot, scary villain, and all round perfect read. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed reading this, in fact I suspect it will become a fast favourite of anyone who loves romance, sex, adventure and great storytelling. ”
“There is a tongue-in-cheek charm in most of Eris Adderly’s writing for several good reasons: she does her research, she enjoys her characters, and she allows her quirky humor to come out in the right places. … Her quality is consistent in all her works as she cares enough to do it right. I recommend this book as well as the other stories she’s written. The writing is meant to get one hot and bothered (and it did for this reader), but if you’ve an interest in using your brain as well, you are rewarded richly for giving her a try.”
“Hard, hot, dirty-talking pirates with questionable morals, dark secrets and no problem sharing? Oh yeah, there’s all that AND a captivating story as well. It’s like your grandmother’s bodice ripper but with threesomes, dark moments and tattoos.”
“The Devil’s Luck has everything I want in a good read, and is without question, the hottest pirate-themed book I’ve ever encountered. Eris Adderly weaves a flawless plot, complete with historically accurate facts and settings, accents, and clothing (as frustrating as all those layers are, at times!) The writing is spectacular and makes for and incredibly enjoyable read, even without all the hotness permeating every single page. Of which there is great abundance, due to the DUO of sexy pirates I’ve come to love more than is healthy or normal. … What’s more, the ending of The Devil’s Luck will leave you not with a book hangover, but with this happy glow that won’t leave you for days.”
“Fantastic story telling and super-hawt hanky spanky – what more could a girl want?”
