About the Book
Title: No Quarter: Wenches – The Complete Series
Author: MJL Evans and GM O’Connor
Genre: Historical Romance
Behind every successful pirate is a cunning wench! In 1689, Atia Crisp finds herself imprisoned in the
wickedest city on earth, Port Royal, Jamaica, while the refugees from Strangewayes’s plantation in the
Blue Mountains are on the run and seeking a new home, deep in the Caribbean. Captain Jean-Paul la
Roche must get them to safety and find a way to liberate the woman he loves while waging a war against
the English with the pirate Laurens de Graaf.

While besieged people suffer and starve, a group of women form a secret and illegal society deep from
within the bowels of the city called: WENCH. A network that deals with smugglers, merchants, cutthroats
and thieves. Dragged into the struggle for supremacy of the Caribbean, the women are divided and find
themselves engulfed in bloodshed. The pirates of Port Royal and former enemies may be their only hope
of escape.



Contains Volume 1-5


Excerpt 1
Inside the Four Feathers Tavern, Bleedin Art studied a game of strategy, but his mind was on the ships and men
he was now responsible for protecting. A three-dimensional tower of checked boards sat with finely carved
figurines placed in defensive positions. Art eyed his opponent and knew victory was at hand.
“Knight takes rook,” said Art.
Captain White sighed. “Aye, that he did. How come I’m always white?”
“It avoids confusion.” Art took a mouthful of ale. “Take yer time.”
“I’d like to.”
“Sweet British sackers!” Chuck Talbot examined the game. “He’s got your king trapped in the tower!”
“Thanks, Chuck,” White said. “What do you want?”
Commodore Chuck Talbot ran his fingers through his thick blond locks. He strutted to the table, donning a
yellow suit of slashed and braided satin complete with a frilled cape. “The convoy is ready to go. I’ll escort
them through the channel to the Bahamas. When I see our cousins from the Tongue of the Ocean, I’ll cut ’em
loose and get back here before you can say: Roger the mermaid’s kraken!”
White sneered. “Very good.”
“Nothing my navy boys can’t handle. Not to step on your toes, Captain Valentine, I know it’s a private
enterprise and all. Just till yer fleet’s back on her keel.” Talbot gave a pleasant smile.
“Just a slight setback,” Art said.
White slowly moved a pawn. “England appreciates both your sacrifices. I’m sure our ships will be protected.”
“More than your king.” Art took the pawn.
“This one or the one with the wig?”
Art took another turn.
“Tactful move.” Talbot patted Art’s back. “He didn’t see that one coming.”
“Captain White,” a woman called.
Art hadn’t seen Lady Anne Beeston in a while. Her auburn hair was pinned up, and her dark blue gown was
trimmed with white lace. She approached determinedly.
“Captain White, our ships will be ready to sail in a fortnight, and we still have no protection. Where’s our
privateers?”
“They’re coming,” Art assured.
“I can’t insure the contents until I know we are secure.”
Talbot bowed and winked. “Not to worry, Lady B, I’ve got ya abaft. Just load yer boats on time.”

“What a charming rogue,” Lady Beeston swooned and fanned her face.
