The Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures
Alan Lewrie is a brash, impetuous ladies man and general rakehell. He's also an officer in the Royal Navy where his bravery and quick thinking bring him success as often as they land him in hot water. From a young midshipman to the captain of a dashing frigate, Lewrie moves up the ranks as he samples the pleasures of the world and makes his mark as a King's officer! McBooks has paperback publishing rights to the first eight paperbacks in the Alan Lewrie series.

The King's Privateer
1783: "Assigned to a ship disguised as a merchant vessel to check on French activities among local pirates, Alan finds plenty of action in Canton, Calcutta, and the islands of the South China Sea. He even runs into his hated father, Sir Hugo, but the two old enemies gain mutual respect as they are compelled to work together.

Lambdin provides a well-rounded plot and fascinating, well-researched evocations of late 18th-century Oriental trade cities."—Library Journal See Details
