The pirate Blackbeard was known for striking fear into the hearts of even the bravest sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of abandoning his rigid life to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything.
Nicole Castroman’s debut novel Blackhearts published last February and as a result, readers hearts melted everywhere. On our own Riveted editorial board, Blackhearts protagonist Edward “Teach” Drummond found his away to both Tara AND Shifa‘s book boyfriend lists, among the likes of Jon Snow, Peeta Mellark, and Jace Herondale. Of course, it wasn’t JUST Teach’s smoldering passion and rugged, take-no-prisoners attitude that drew readers to Blackhearts, it’s also a rich historical fiction featuring a strong biracial heroine. We happen to be featuring the extended excerpt of Blackhearts again right now so why not give it a read and see for yourself?
