Mischa is determined to break the record for speed sailing around the world. While off the coast of Fiji, a freak storm comes out of nowhere and nearly destroys her ship. When she wakes up, she finds herself on the deck of an unfamiliar ship. At first, she thinks the scruffy men surrounding her are actors on some pirate themed cruise. After all, there's no way they could be real pirates, right. Wrong. Somehow, she's been transported back to the 1700s, and is now the captive of the sexy Captain Jareth. Sparks fly, and she's thrilled not only with him, but with the adventure of being on a pirate ship. But can her feelings for him go anywhere? After all, they're from two different time periods...
This was a short story about a woman who loves sailing and boating somehow ending up in the past, able to experience firsthand the thrills of old sailing ships. She's also found her perfect man in Jareth, a scruffy pirate captain who's more than he appears. I enjoyed the story, but I wish it had been a little longer to allow Mischa and Jareth more time together.
