“A compelling romance that incorporates all the mystery, adventure, and passion of a historical novel with a fresh approach—the perfect tale for the reader who craves a hint of the unusual within a love story.” —RT BOOK REVIEWS Mississippi River, 1879. Delta Jarrett is desperate to end the recurring dreams that haunt her: disturbing, passionate dreams about her ancestor, pirate Anne Bonny, and Anne’s lover, Calico Jack. Their romance happened over a hundred years before, but now, in 1879, Delta is still enamored with their world. In an attempt to purge the dreams, Delta agrees to serve as a reporter for her brother-in-law Hollis’ newspaper, the St. Louis Sun. She would cover stories onboard a Louisiana showboat, the Mississippi Princess, at each port of call, and for the festivities later in New Orleans. Brett Reall, on the run from a murder he did not commit, is back in the bayous of Louisiana after a decade, disguised and on the lookout for bounty hunters and the law. His enemies could be anywhere, but after boarding the Mississippi Princess and seeing Delta, he has a new fear: pulling this beautiful woman into harms’ way. Delta can sense the danger that surrounds Brett, but her vivid dreams and growing love for this real-life pirate draw her closer and closer to him, and to disaster.
