Captain Blackheart leads a simple life of roving the seas, wenching and treasure-hunting. He steers clear of romantic entanglements that could tie him to land. He shouldn't have any trouble keeping his hands off the gently-bred lady he's commissioned to abduct—except his cargo turns out to be feisty and passionate! She'd be a prize worth treasuring, if having her aboard didn't jeopardize everything...
Clara Halton thought the worst loss she could suffer was to be stripped of her family, stricken with consumption, and left to die alone. Then she meets Blackheart. Their attraction is ruinous...and irresistible. When he delivers her like so much plunder, his mission is over — but hers has just begun. She'll force him to acknowledge their connection, even if she must storm his ship to do it!
Gregory Steele is better known as Captain Blackheart, a privateer who went independent, because he does better on his own.
He's sent to The America to find a sickly woman named Mrs. Clara Halton. What he finds isn't the picture he's told that he'd find at all. He discovers that Mrs. Halton isn't as sickly, but not the picture of perfect health, either.
Clara doesn't know who this strange man is but wants him gone from her home as soon as possible. As the voyage back to England proves to be trying for Gregory because Clara represents a temptation that he can't afford aboard The Dark Crystal.
Clara longs for adventure and bit of love along the way. However getting back to her daughter Grace is very important. How does meeting Clara change Gregory? Does Clara still want adventure? Your answers await you in The Pirate's Tempting Stowaway.
I've been really curious about Captain Blackheart since his introduction. I wasn't disappointed at all with the story. The characters and story were raw, honest, real, compelling, and intriguing too. I'm definitely looking forward to the final book in the series.
