A Touch of Destiny

For centuries, ominous whispers foretold the arrival of a sinister omen of ruin who will bring the end of times. This conqueror will rise and change the tides, no matter the consequences.

After a botched marriage proposal and a rejection from her dream job, actress Luz Narváez García is left with a deep desire to disappear from the public eye. Her wish comes true when an unknown magical force transports her back to the 1680’s – a time where piracy, colonization, and debauchery were commonplace.

Lost in time, Luz finds herself surrounded by the ruthless waters of the Caribbean, where everything has a price. Between a lethal power hungry naval officer, riddled with deep desires of revenge, and a mysterious bloodthirsty pirate who steals her indispensable necklace and kidnaps her, she’s thrust into a dangerous role in the treacherous politics of piracy.

Caught up in a web of danger and intrigue, Luz must use her wits and cunning to not only ensure her survival but to also outsmart those who seek a higher power only she is meant to wield… all while finding a way back home that doesn’t alter the course of history catastrophically.

Nicole Velazquez is a Puerto Rican fantasy, sci-fi, and dystopian author. She earned her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University, with concentrations on science and cultural education. She has a passion for Caribbean history, all things fantasy, and bringing awareness about matters that affect Puerto Rican and Latine communities. She currently resides in Indianapolis with her family and two dogs, where she works as a 4th grade science teacher.
