Former Judge Lord Lawrence Llewellyn’s elaborate heels clopped against the woodwork. His blue and red checkered justacorps hung regally around his frame, and draped over his shoulder was a deep purple sash. “Have I missed anything?”
“Nay, they’re just getting started.” Dewar clapped his hands. “Oh, hurrah! I love a good battle! Who is it this time, the Spanish?”
The former governor’s advisor, Mason Sleemans, covered his ears. “We’re not at war with the Spanish. The French, I suspect. That’s a declaration of war from Saint-Domingue.”
Llewellyn posed triumphantly. “I’m even wearing my ceremonial sash of victory.” He paused to take a deep breath. “Ah, the sounds and smells of war. How I missed it so. Everyone comes together to kill total strangers who knows whatever for.” A smile illuminated his face. “God, I love it so!”
Sleemans pointed to the purple accoutrement. “What battle does it commemorate?”
Llewellyn shrugged. “Who knows, but I’m sure we won.”
Dewar and Llewellyn strolled onto the stone patio for a better view. In between the thunderous booms, the nearby ocean washed over the rocky terrain below. The air around them grew silent.
“Oh, what happened? Have they stopped?”
Sleemans peered out to sea. “Maybe just turning around for another assault?”
“Let’s hope so! When did we last beat the French?” Dewar asked.
“We’ve never been at war with them before,” Sleemans said.
“Well, it’s bloody well time then!”
Another flash and a shot soared into the city.
“Come along, swords up! Ah, it’s on again.” Dewar took a slender, brass spyglass from his pocket. “Come on, Port Royal. Shoot back, you lousy Whigs!”

Author: MJL Evans
Genre: Historical Romance
Volume 1 of 6 begins in 1689 Port Royal, Jamaica, where Atia Crisp is imprisoned, awaiting trial, while refugees from Strangewayes’s plantation seek their new home. Guided by Capitaine la Roche, they face pursuit by the pirate hunter Big Dick and the perilous terrain of Bocas del Toro. Their future home of Sérénité hangs in the balance, complicated by the outbreak of war with France.
The adventures from No Quarter: Dominium continue with wenches! 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.
Hell hath no fury like a cross wench!
