When I wrote To Tame the Wind, my seafaring romance set in London, Paris and the English Channel, for a particularly difficult battle at sea between the hero, Capt. Simon Powell and his schooner and the heroine’s father, pirate Jean Donet and his brig sloop, I used The Courier from the soundtrack of The Last of the Mohicans. If you listen to that song as you read the scene you can feel the tension mount as the two ships tightly maneuver to fire their guns. Read the scene and see my playlists for my reading HERE.
