Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Summary: Edward “Teach” Drummond, son of one of Bristol’s richest merchants, has just returned from a year-long journey on the high seas to find his life in shambles. Betrothed to a girl he doesn’t love and sick of the high society he was born into, Teach dreams only of returning to the vast ocean he’d begun to call home. There’s just one problem: convincing his father to let him leave and never come back.
Following her parents’ deaths, Anne Barrett is left penniless and soon to be homeless. Though she’s barely worked a day in her life, Anne is forced to take a job as a maid in the home of Master Drummond. Lonely days stretch into weeks, and Anne longs for escape. How will she ever realize her dream of sailing to Curaçao—where her mother was born—when she’s stuck in England?
From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn to each other, they’re trapped by society and their own circumstances. Faced with an impossible choice, they must decide to chase their dreams and go, or follow their hearts and stay.
I am a big fan of Pirates Of The Caribbean/pirate books & when I first found out about this book, I knew it would be on my TBR for 2016 🙂
This prequel story to Blackbeard sounds amazing & I cannot wait to read it 🙂
And I made a bookmark based on the cover 🙂
Feel free to download/share it 🙂
