Sail in, sail out. Steal a man’s heart and plenty of his art.
Try as I may, I can’t get the voice of the Jolly Roger’s captain out of my head. Captain Hook believes my magic keeps him safe, but in truth I’m pushing him out to sea.
We are destined to be together, but what Hook doesn’t know can’t hurt me. Can’t tempt me away from the sanctuary I’m trying to build on land. No matter how badly I want to taste the salt water on his skin.
The difference between a curse and a blessing is perspective. What was meant as a punishment has given me a wonderful life of piracy. The only cost is I’m bound to the mage who cast the spell.
Warren is a darling artist, who claims to get seasick with black hair, and one sky-blue eye that captivates me like only the ocean can. If he’s as uninterested as he claims, why does he say my real name like my heart is the only treasure that matters?
A sleepy coastal town just signed on a perilously magical new hire that reveals the mayor’s heart and stunning empty pocketbook.
The Mayor of Hamelin
Everyone fears rats, so I never expected someone to claim the bounty. Then Piper struts into town all color and song and fixes the problem in a single afternoon. When I can’t pay, his playful banter turns into outright extortion. Threatening my reelection with a series of escalating pranks that I refuse to admit are actually funny.
The Pied Piper
I know Mayor Finch of Hamelin respects the law, so I can cash out if I push him. If he can’t afford me, a scandal is definitely too high of a price. Pushing his buttons and watching him squirm is far more fun anyway. I’d call it foreplay, but election season is so drawn out it might count as my longest relationship.
Playing dirty keeps me untouchable, but drawing this heated tension out further might tie me up in endless red tape. Despite the delight I take in tormenting him, I find myself wanting him to win. In the end, will I be one left with a broken heart?

TOP REVIEWS OF THE BIG BAD DEEDS SERIES
Such a sweet, quick read!
Loved the ease of this book. It flowed so nicely and the characters – I love them so much. The witty banter between Warren and Hook made me smile. Piper was my fav and I’ll def be grabbing his book soon.- 5 Star Verified Review From S.B.
I’ve found my new go-to comfort read!
I curled up with this one during an afternoon and, before I knew it, evening had arrived and the story was wrapping up. We meet mage Warren as he laments that, though the spell he cast protects his love, it also prevents him from remaining on land for too long. We are then introduced to Captain Hook – and this roguish version is no where near some versions you might have read about during childhood. The two gently pine for each other and we learn that sometimes honesty is the best policy. This is the first book I’ve read by Sinclair and I will certainly seek out more. A soft tale for anyone who needs an escape.
