AN HEIR ON THE RUN
In one month, Aoife Cascade will turn twenty and take her seat on the Council of Cregah, an honor she’s been preparing for her whole life. But when she lets a secret slip to her mother with devastating consequences, all her plans for the future crumble. Believing her people to be better off without her, she flees Cregah, stowing away aboard a pirate ship bound for dangerous waters.
A PIRATE CAPTAIN WHO NEEDS HER HELP
Captain Declan McCallagh is young compared to the pirate lords, but after twelve years on the grueling Aisling Sea, he has earned a well respected ship and the attention of the lords, who seek to put him in his place. All he wants is to leave the Aisling Sea—and his past—behind him, and finding the enchanted dagger is the final key to making that happen… the same dagger his sister and her rebel group need to overthrow the council. He’ll have to decide whether to help a people he no longer claims as his own or take the dagger for himself.
VANESSA sets sail into the waters of new adult fantasy with On These Black Sands, the first book in her world of pirates, fae, and ruthless rulers. By day she wrangles her four children, works as a data analyst, and runs a small business creating gifts for book nerds like herself. A lifelong early bird, she writes in the early morning hours with her coffee, praying for the kids to sleep past sunrise. When not at her keyboard, she is likely hiding somewhere with a good book, watching movies with her family, or dreaming of future travels. [ author website | instagram | facebook ]
