Goodreads Summary:
Blackbeard the pirate was known for striking fear in the hearts of the bravest of sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of leaving his rigid life behind to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything. This is their story.

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.
This sounds amazing! I had the pleasure of talking to the author on Twitter and she's super nice! She has a twin too :D

What are you guys waiting on this week?


  1. I love how this book sounds! I never put much attention to the summary until now, so I'll be adding it to my to-read list.
    Great pick!

    1. I've heard very swoony things about it too ;)

  2. This does look really good, great pick this week!

  3. So looking forward to this one too! The reviews I've read have been positive, yet leaving you with an ache for a second book that may or may not be happening! Still...I'm ready to inflict that kind of torture onto myself! LOL!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. I've heard that too! Hopefully there will be a sequel?!

  4. I can't wait for this one. It looks so good. Wow, I had no idea the author is a twin. How cool is that? I have twin sons and I have to say I am still amazed by twins lol!

  5. Arrrrrr, matey. :D I hope you'll enjoy this, Eileen!

  6. Eep! I'm in the minority - I didn't love this one. Actually, that's not quite true. I ADORED the book, up until the ending. And promptly docked two stars because of the ending. But hopefully a sequel will be contracted with S&S. I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Eileen. :)
