If you can’t
beat them, join them.

 

After learning
the truth behind the vampire pirates swarming the Mediterranean Sea, the young
gods and demigods join forces with the vampires in the fight against
corruption.

 

But first, they
must learn to be pirates. According to one of their leaders, Delphine, it’s a
dangerous art form that any can learn but not all can survive.

 

Delphine also
says there’s no room for both love and war. And there’s a war going on.

 

If you like
enemies-to-lovers romance and heart-breaking love triangles combined with
fast-paced, high-stakes action, then this series is for you.

“You and Taavi
create the distraction,” Alastair said to her. “Fight or kiss—your choice. And
Hestie, you be the thief this time.”

 

Gertie clenched
her fists. If she screwed this up, it wouldn’t help Hestie’s opinion of her. No
pressure.

 

She glanced at
the captain, who seemed amused by the pirate training as he enjoyed his beer.

 

He lifted his
mug and said, “Good luck.”

 

“When will it
be the captain’s turn?” Gertie asked Taavi.

 

“Never,”
Prometheus said. “Never, ever, ever will I go by the name of pirate, no matter
the cause. But cheers to you.” He lifted his mug again.

 

Their group had
moved down the plaza from The Black Pearl to The Galley Bar and Restaurant, so
they could work on new targets without arousing suspicion. Their newest target
was a middle-aged woman sitting alone at a table across the street, where she
sipped from a glass of wine and gazed at the dark, shimmering sea.

 

Follow my lead,
Taavi said to Gertie with a wink as he took her by the hand.

 

For a split
second, he reminded her of Jeno.

 

As they crossed
the street together, Gertie said, “I like your new clothes.”

 

“Thanks.”

 

He was wearing
a gray t-shirt with a black leather vest and black jeans.

 

Taavi stopped
near the deck, not far from where the target was sitting, and stood close to
Gertie. His body was long and lean, and he took Gertie into his arms and gazed
down at her with his golden eyes from beneath dark, thick brows. His dark, wavy
hair blew in the wind. She had her hair tied in a ponytail at the nape of her
neck. When Taavi smiled, a single dimple appeared in his left cheek.

 

I am going to
kiss you, okay? Then you slap me and call me a terrible name. Pretend you do
not appreciate my advances. He winked again. Of course, you and I know
otherwise.

 

Gertie
chuckled. This should be fun.

 

Gingerly, Taavi
caressed her bottom lip with his. Then he pressed his mouth firmly against hers
as he pulled her into a tighter embrace. Gertie lost herself. She hadn’t been
kissed like this, with so much longing and so much hunger, in such a long time.
Part of her knew that Taavi was acting, but another part of her hoped that he
wasn’t.

 

Still dazed
moments after the kissing had stopped, Gertie looked up at Taavi, bewildered.
Where she had previously been drawn to him by the prospect of his bite, she was
finding herself longing for more.

 

He grinned. Any
moment now, you can slap me.

 

“Oh,” she
whispered, snapping out of it.

 

Remember to be
dramatic, he added.

 

“Um, okay.”

 

He lunged for
her again, his mouth covering hers. Her body shivered with pleasure. She didn’t
want it to end.

 

He pulled away,
laughing. “Gertie! Concentrate!”

 

She slapped his
cheek so hard that it stung her hand. “Leave me alone!”

 

Taavi took a
step back, looking shocked by the blow.

 

“How dare you!”
Gertie added. “You, you…” she couldn’t think of a bad name to call him.

 

He pulled her
toward him, and she tried to fight him off, but when he pressed his lips
against hers again and circled his arms around her waist, she kissed back.
Before she knew it, she had grabbed fistfuls of his hair.

 

The others are
watching, he said.

 

Again, she
snapped out of it and slapped his cheek. She glanced at the target and noticed
the woman was walking away from her table, her purse in hand, and leaving the
bar altogether.

 

“Did Hestie
have a chance to…”

 

 

“No,” Taavi
said.
