A Pirate's Life for Me!
In the 1980's pirate historical romances were quite the rage. Then someone killed them! Argh! With the success of Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean series, I am sure we are to see many pirate historicals return to the shelves in the next few months. Which makes me wonder, can I can put a modern girl on an 18th century pirate ship? I have seen time travel romance done dozens of times in medieval Scotland, why not in the Caribbean? And why not a girl who has nothing to loose and nowhere to go? One whose heart has been broken and lost forever? This is what I am working on now. Ian and Isobell have been set aside. After two years of wandering in circles with them, I am ready to move on. Maybe they will decide to stop lounging about in my head and actually do something with their lives. Until then, I am moving forward.
