Publisher's Summary

On a tranquil evening in the Bahamas, Calico Jack, long wanted on counts of piracy, makes a surprise appearance at the governor's residence and asks for a pardon for himself and his men. A deal is brokered after Jack reveals the motive for turning himself in: love. When Jack last set sail from the Bahamas two years ago, he left behind a beautiful fiancée, and he recently learned that she remains unmarried.
What the governor does not reveal to Jack is that while he was off pirating, his beloved has become betrothed to a new man - the governor himself. It doesn't take long for this truth to come to light, and after embarking on a new romance with famous Irish pirate Anne Bonney, Jack is quickly transformed back into a thieving captain in calico.

An early little nugget of GFM

An early attempt at a classic anti-hero tale, Fraser is nevertheless a very capable weaver of plots and characters. Glad I read it, even though it strays far from the known stories of these famous pirates.

yawn

Tedious ro finish. The story finished well before the narrative. Easy to see why this book was never published.
