About the Series
The Earl's Other Son Series. It is the final years of Queen Victoria's long reign. Lord Magnus Campbell is a lounger, and a naval lieutenant only because an uncle pays him a comfortable allowance while he remains in the service. His father is poor. He is a Scottish Earl with more title than income, and his elder brother is respectable but dim. They are both disapproving of Magnus and his errant ways.

After his indiscretion with an admiral's daughter, Magnus is forced to leave England. He is appointed captain of an outdated sloop based out of Hong Kong. He engages in vicious actions with pirates and 'mercenaries' working for the other Great Powers and achieves a fair amount of success...
