The Devil's Own

(1975)
(The second book in the Caribee of the Hiltons series)
A novel by

 
 
Kit Hilton is the grandson of an Irish whore and a pirate, a daredevil buccaneer who sailed under the fearsome Henry Morgan and took part in the sacking of Panama City.

After returning to the wealthy Antigua, Kit is faced with Marguerite Warner, daughter of the Governor and the girl he lusted after as a boy.

He had wanted her as much for her spirit and independence as for her irresistible looks - but to master her, he must first master the world of which she is the mistress.

Can Kit ever live up to the fierce and fearless lady of Green Grove, when the whole island is set against the ex-buccaneer?

Amidst the turmoil of heart and flesh, there is also the constant tension of the slave uprising - something is brewing in Antigua's underbelly...

'The Devil's Own' is a masterpiece of historical fiction combining romance, intrigue and social history in the first in a saga about the first settlers of the Caribbean. It is the sequel to 'Seas of Passion' and is the second novel in Christopher Nicole's history of the West Indies, from the founding of the first colony to Emancipation in 1834.

Praise for Christopher Nicole:

'His backgrounds are vivid and the characters authentic ... a robust tale, vigorously told... ' Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph.

'Well-researched... Evocative descriptions of scenery and edifices, and exact period dialogue' Historical Novels Society

Christopher Nicole (born 1930) was brought up in British Guyana and the West Indies. His output of books, under his own name and several pennames, has been prolific. Much of his work is historical, and many are set in the Caribbean.
