Review copy received from publisher for an honest review. 
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.

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.

Omg I freaking LOVED this book! There has to be more. Simon Teen you BETTER pick up the sequel!!!! 

I am quite obsessed with Pirates. Hell Black Sails on Starz is one of my favorite shows! But what Nicole Castroman has done here is completely brilliant! She took one of the most notorious bloodthirsty, violent pirates (and also one who very little is known about in real life) and turned him into someone with a past, a backstory, a heart and I fell hard for "Teach". He was compassionate and kind and loving but he did have quite the temper when his loved ones were hurting or an innocent was being harmed and I loved that about him. And he was sexy as hell lol

I also loved the other MC, Anne. She was a pistol with a quick wit and a pail (trust me you'll see when you read the book!) she had had a good upbringing but fell on hard times. But she didn't let that bring her down instead it made her stronger. And the chemistry between her and Teach was freaking intense! I loved how their story wasn't insta-love either but it grew with time and mutual respect for one another.

I could go on forever about this book but I don't want to spoil it for you so make sure you buy this book when it comes out in February and read it right away. You will not be dissappointed!
