Captain Kit "The Hawk" Gerardo is a French privateer - a pirate as far as his enemies are concerned. He attacks a Spanish ship of the line, the Garza, captained by Luis del Toro. Gerardo has a personal reason for wanting del Toro dead - the man killed his mother. The battle is inconclusive but the Garza had on board a number of prisoners and Gerardo's ship rescues a beautiful redhead who claims to be the daughter of a Dutch merchant. She is in fact Captain Rouge, an English privateer, and manages to escape after learning that Gerardo has no immediate plans to return to port. An attack on another Spanish ship gives them a great prize: Bianca de Valdiva, del Toro's bride to be. She is to be held for ransom but a love triangle develops. Bianca is in love with Kit; he is love with Captain Rouge; and Rouge hates men in general and Gerardo in particular after he attacks her plantation. Rouge comes to his rescue however when he is captured and ordered to be hanged.- Written by garykmcd
