In this stunningly creative debut “filled with well-drawn characters…and smoldering passion,” (Booklist) Nicole Castroman reimagines the origins of history’s most infamous pirate—Blackbeard.

When Edward “Teach” Drummond, son of one of Bristol’s richest merchants, returns home from a year at sea, he finds his life in shambles. Betrothed to a girl he doesn’t love and sick of the high society he was born into, all Teach wants is to return to the vast ocean he calls home. There’s just one problem: he must convince his father to let him leave and never come back.

Following the death of her parents, Anne Barrett is left penniless. Though she’s barely worked a day in her life, Anne takes a job as a maid in the home of Master Drummond. Lonely days stretch into weeks and Anne longs to escape the confines of her now mundane life. How will she ever achieve her dream of sailing to Curaçao—her mother’s birthplace—when she’s trapped in England?

From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn together by a shared desire for freedom, but kept apart by Teach’s father, their love is as passionate as it is forbidden. Faced with an impossible choice, Teach and Anne must decide whether to chase their dreams and leave England forever—or follow their hearts and stay together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! Yas! Inter-racial romance + revenge for the win! Think your in-laws are bad? Have they ever blackmailed/kidnapped you? I am so glad I bought Blacksouls so I can read the sequel asap. The pacing was a little off at the beginning but it got so good! it seemed like Castroman didn't know how to write Edward & Anne in the beginning when they don't like each other but she figured it out after the first 1/3 of the book or so. Boat race/revenge is definitely coming up next and I am sooooooo excited! *shimmeying shoulders and wiggling eyebrows*
