Morgan "Black Heart" Farrell can't believe that the honey-haired siren is telling him the truth: that he's sailed right into the twentieth century. He desperately needs to get back to his ship and his own time. But for now, the widowed Kate seems to need a man -- a real man -- who can protect and comfort her. Black Heart knows he may have brought danger with him from the past, but he can't seem to resist Kate's cupid-bow mouth with its fiery kisses.
At first, Kate Cameron can't believe her eyes as they drink in the spectacular mystery man standiong on an otherwise deserted beach. Never mind that he's wearing a cutlass and looks like he washed onshore from an off-Broadway production of The Pirates of Penzance, Black Heart is the sexiest man Kate has ever seen. And she soon begins to believe that Morgan's heart may not be so black...but that he may be the hero she's been looking for.
Berg's (If I Can't Have You) time-travel romance takes readers from the high seas of 1702 to present-day St. Augustine. As pirate Black Heart clashes swords with his nemesis, Thomas Low, a broken mast throws him overboard and onto a Florida beach in 1998. In the ruins of what was once his island hideaway, the buff buccaneer spies widow Kate Cameron and her cute daughter, Casey, who loves to tell pirate stories. Black Heart (ne Morgan Farrell) is really a sweetie under his black eye patch; he longs for a wife and kids, just as Kate longs to have more children. A little too dull-witted to make a decent heroine, Kate fights the standard losing battle between head and heart, along with other body parts; Morgan doesn't particularly want to go back to a lonely 18th-century ship, even if staying means not taking his vengeance against Low. Fortunately, Low has also time-traveled to St. Augustine, and the pair finishes the duel. Readers will be thankful for this continued fight, for here Berg has created a twosome more exciting than Morgan and Kate.
