But when he falls in love with the wrong woman, the course of his life is irrevocably changed….
Now, Constantine is known as the fearsome English pirate called LEADER OF TITANS, but his experience with his ex-lover wasn’t enough to drive him away from women. He loves them, and loves them in droves. Passion, plunder, and pirates his is motto.
Enter Lady Greggoria “Gregg” de Moyon. A pious woman, she was given a sacred object by her husband, an object much sought after by the terrible French pirates who roam the coast between Brittany and England. When her husband is killed by the French pirates on their quest for the treasure, Greggoria must turn to Constantine for help. She knows that only a pirate of equal strength can fight off the French and save her from most certain doom.
Constantine is more than willing to help the beautiful woman with the unusual name. But when he unexpectedly falls for her, the man with more women than a Arab shiek finds that his task has just become unbearably complicated.

Leader of Titans Excerpt
Lavish was an understatement. Gregoria had never seen anything like it; fine furniture everywhere, furs and carpets on the floor, and several large and fine tapestries hanging on the walls. Awestruck, she stood just inside the door, gaping at her surroundings, as Constantine went to a table that contained wine and cups and other things. As he moved to pour wine, two of the biggest dogs Gregoria had ever seen came up to her, looking at her curiously. She recoiled when she saw them, terrified they were going to eat her.
“They will not harm you,” Constantine said as he came away from the table with two full cups of wine in his hands. “They are simply curious with visitors. Henry is the blond dog and Edward is the darker one.”
He extended a cup of wine to her and Gregoria eyed the dogs as she accepted it. “Henry and Edward?” she repeated. “Interesting names for… dogs.”
Constantine smirked. “They are named for England’s king and the Earl of March, make no mistake,” he said. Then, he turned to the dogs. “Sit down, you beasts. Sit!”
Promptly, the dogs planted their hindquarters on the floor. Constantine pointed at them. “Lay down, you mongrels. Lay down and be silent.”
The dogs complied, laying down, but continuing to look at Constantine with their big doggy eyes. He grinned at them, patting each dog on the head.
“You see?” he said to Gregoria. “I can command Henry and Edward to do my bidding. No matter what I tell them, they will obey. That is the way it should be.”
Gregoria had to admit, she found it rather humorous that Constantine should take such delight in bullying two dogs with the names of men that were in control of England. One man in particular who wanted to see Constantine dead. But she didn’t smile, even though she felt like it, and sipped at the sweet, fine wine instead.
“They are very nice dogs, my lord,” she said. “And… and your home is very nice, too.”
Constantine turned to her. In the light of the room, her porcelain, high-cheekboned face was even more intriguing. He gestured at her cloak.
“Remove your wrap and set down your bag,” he said. “Come over to the fire. It is warmer there, and you and I must speak.”
Quickly, Gregoria did as she was told. She removed her cape, putting it on a fine-cushioned chair, and set her heavy satchel down next to it. Then, she made her way to the hearth that was taller than she was, radiating copious amounts of heat.
“Thank you for agreeing to speak with me, my lord,” she said gratefully. “I realize I have come unannounced, but my father said you were a man who could be depended on and… I… I have a serious problem. I need your help.”
Constantine’s eyes drifted over her now that she was uncloaked and what he saw did not displease him; she was tall in height, round of body in the right places. Her beauty could only be described as astonishing; along with those bright blue eyes and high cheekbones, she had brown hair that glistened with red highlights in the firelight. It was wavy, gathered back into a braid, with wispy tendrils around her face. In truth, the entire vision was heavenly. Constantine could feel his interest in her growing.
