Determined to seek his fortune, Percival Taylor leaves behind his sleepy hometown and sets out to become a legendary pirate.

The only problem is, no one at the rough-and-tumble seaport of Blackshore will allow him anywhere near a ship!

Percival must find other means to win the heart of the beautiful Tuppence Magrathia Paddock, who has mistaken him for a pirate rogue out of one of her romantic books. She is entirely willing to swoon into his arms if he can prove his buccaneer soul and she will even arrange her own kidnapping to prove it.

Percival eventually finds himself captain of a broken-down ship, complete with a crew of reluctant pirates, a jilted fiancée, a reclusive master shipwright, and an old professor with a magical secret that could kill them all.

I LOVED this book!
A LOT of FANTASTIC SCENES, filled with tongue-in-cheek humor, are found in these pages! OH. SO. GOOD!

I enjoyed reading this book, it did take me about 50 pages to really get into the story, but once I did it was amazing!

I thought this book was great!! It seems to have everything in it but the kitchen sink. Ha! Adventure, pirates, romance, humor, etc. It was also clean and would appeal to all types of audiences.
