Privateer and pirate hunter, Captain Thomas Crowe, has been commissioned by the governor of Havana to hunt down and capture the cunning and deadly pirate, Captain Jake Hawking. Alas, Hawking isn't an ordinary pirate and tracking the infamous rogue down hasn't been easy for Crowe and his crew. But Crowe sees his fortune change when his ship, the Bounty, comes across a British naval captain, Captain James Thorpe, stranded on a small craft alone in the open Caribbean Ocean. Thorpe's ship was attacked by Jake Hawking and beached on a deserted island not far off.
With a renewed feeling of duty and excitement, Crowe and his crew head for the island to rescue Thorpe's crew. But when they arrive, they find danger lurking around every cove and inlet, and soon Crowe comes face to face with Jake Hawking himself.
The Royal Bounty Hunter is a short-story sitting at approximately 10,000 words.
