The task is simple. "Deliver the prize to the Admiral in Antigua." But nothing's simple with a leaking ship and inexperienced second lieutenant Donlan as captain. Aboard is a young boy with no memory--someone the French desperately want to capture. Donland's first command may well be his only command as he fights off traitors, outwits spies and bedevils a French sea captain sworn to vengeance. He doesn't even have enough men to load a broadside. Donland is not only inexperienced in command, but love as well. When he encounters a beautiful woman on a captured sloop, he's presented with the most difficult choice of all--between command and the woman he loves. THE TREACHEROUS PRIZE is a sea tale of intrigue, friendship and love, set in the Caribbean Sea during the American Revolution, in the tradition of CS Forester's HORNBLOWER.
