Synopses & Reviews
Jacky Faber is framed as passing confidential U.S. information to the British. Forced to flee Boston, she goes undercover as a governess for a prominent Puritan family. When outed by a nosy postmaster, she deserts the respectability of her position, dons a leotard and slippers, and poses as a Russian tightrope walker in a traveling circus.
But the law soon catches up with her, and prospects do not look good. Through her many adventures, Jacky has always found the ingenuity to escape dire situations, but this time it looks like Puss in Boots has run out of lives . . . and her happily-ever-after will be cut short at the foot of the gallows.
Jacky Faber a proper Boston lady? Not bloody likely!
Can the irrepressible Jacky Faber and her schoolmates put aside their differences and work together to avoid being sold on the auction block?
The third Jacky Faber book, now in paperback
From exotic ports to the perilous streets of London, the renowned Jacky Faber scares up enough adventure and hijinks to delight her myriad fans in the ninth installment of this popular series.
The acclaimed historical fiction series Bloody Jack Adventures continues with this rollicking pirate adventure on the high seas as Jacky Faber finds herself aboard a convict ship headed for the penal colony of New South Wales, Australia.
Just when it looks like Jacky Faber and her beloved Jaimy will finally find their romance, Jacky is accused of treason and must flee Boston while her friends attempt to clear her name. Of course that means wild adventures for our fun-loving heroine, who manages to secure a job as a governess…and run away with the circus. The highly anticipated grand finale of the Bloody Jack Adventures.
Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei
Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins
against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested
and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia. To add insult to
injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry female convicts to populate New South
Wales. Not one to give in to self-pity, Jacky rallies her sisters to “better” their position—
resulting in wild escapades, brushes with danger, and much hilarity.
Jacky Faber, condemned for life to the English penal colony in Australia, has once again escaped the British authorities. Back on her flagship, the Lorelei Lee, she heads back to England in the company of friends and her beloved Jaimy. But when the voyage is waylaid by pirates, storms, and her own impetuous nature, Jacky is cast into a world of danger that extends from the South China Sea to the equally treacherous waters of London politics. With the help of friends, Jacky confronts her enemies in this tale of love, courage, and redemption.
