"Ms. Ranson has a winner in this one!"

Michaela Martin, only child and a proverbial loner seeks to pledge a campus sorority. Eager to fit in and being the newest pledge, she is the one selected for a challenge which, if she fails means no one will pledge that sorority this year! The challenge...part of local legend...sit on the beach and await the anniversary of Black Hand the pirate's shipwreck. Horrible stories abound as to the fate of girls who have done this before. She is to tell no one or be voted out.

Sitting on the beach, Michaela is frightened by a dark fog rolling in and decides to give up the sorority ritual and run. Overtaken by the fog, she wakes up on a ship, captive of the pirate Tristan Hamilton. She thinks this is all a dream to her and she reacts as any 21st century girl would, not being in the least respectful and arguing everything that is said. Tristan is entranced and makes a vow to have her within the month.

Michaela being a student of history; knows all of Tristan's battles, wounds and of his death. She warns him but he thinks she is insane. As she tries her best to convince him of his future, they are attacked.

Excellent story! The writing flowed beautifully and the battle scenes were well-researched. Doesn't every girl long for her very own pirate? Hopefully, Ms. Ranson will write more historically-based novels. She has a winner in this one!

Old legends told a tale of a pirate curse placed on the town of Mystic Harbor, death to anyone on the beach the night of the anniversary of the pirate Tristan Hamilton's death. The fog, thick and white, rolls in from the sea at midnight. Michaela tries to outrun it, but it was too quick for her. When she awakens, she finds more than she bargained for aboard Tristan Hamilton's ship.

Tristan Hamilton, a legendary pirate, doesn't know what to make of the strange lass aboard his ship. Where did she come from?

Through dangerous waters and pirates, Tristan and Michaela form a deep and passionate love that would stand the test of time. Looming over them, besides the dangers that threaten their love, is Michaela's knowledge of his history and future. Will she let history take its course or alter it and risk a possible paradox in her own time?
