Blackhearts Release Day Giveaway US & INT


I am so excited for Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman to be releasing today! I read this a while back and adored the character development and story of Blackbeard prior to his pirating days. You can see all the reasons I think you should read Blackhearts here and read about how the lead character, Teach, is similar to Poldark here.

About the Book

By: Nicole Castroman
Release Date: February 9th 2016
Publisher: Simon Pulse

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.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! I’m crazy excited to read this because I’ve never read any YA books based on Blackbeard, let only a prequel of sorts! The covers also so gorgeous, ahhh! I’m determined to own all the new YA books with covers that has ships on them (Passenger, Blackhearts, and The Girl From Everywhere). They’ll look so good together, haha!

    Who doesn’t love a good pirate story? I definitely do! Pirates are the ultimate bad boys which is a weakness of mine. 🙂
