Query Pitch

I’m working up a new query pitch for my newest novel, Caesar’s Revenge. Please give my blurb a quick read and let me know what you think. Thanks! 

In the era of Caribbean piracy,  a slave named Black Caesar turns pirate when he captures his master's ship and renames it the Revenge. He sets the ship's slaves and criminals free, including a sultry native named Corinna. But he gets more than he bargains for when his former master, the Spanish Viceroy, puts a price on his head. Hunted by the Spanish navy and captain of a mutinous crew, Caesar allies himself with Port Royal's duplicitous Governor Morgan. Together they plot a risky raid against the Viceroy's impregnable treasure fortress of Las Marinas, from which no pirate has ever returned alive. Gold, vengeance, and the beautiful Corinna all seem tantalizingly within Caesar's grasp, so long as the Spanish Viceroy doesn't hang him first.
