The Devil’s Heart
by Candace Osmond
When Dianna breaks an enchanted ship-in-a-bottle she’s washed away to the past, to 1707 Newfoundland where she’s taken prisoner aboard a pirate ship. The Devil’s Heart.
Fans of OUTLANDER and PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN give praise for The Devil’s Heart
After ten long years, Dianna Cobham reluctantly heads home to Newfoundland for her father’s funeral. While sorting through the estate, she discovers her family’s ancestral ties to ruthless pirates through a series of 300-year-old journal entries and an old chest of belongings.
One evening, after too much rum, Dianna accidentally breaks one of the items in the chest, an old ship-in-a-bottle. Within minutes, a tidal wave crashes through the oceanside home, washing her away to sea…and to the past. 1707 Newfoundland, the pinnacle of piracy on the Atlantic Ocean.
Dianna is soon taken prisoner aboard The Devil’s Heart, a pirate ship led by the callous Captain Devil Eyed Barrett. With luck and wit, Dianna earns their trust and gains a spot on the crew as their cook. But luck won’t help her when she learns of the crew’s plan to seek and destroy their enemy, Dianna’s direct ancestors. For years, they’d been trapped by Celtic magic, contained inside an enchanted ship-in-a-bottle, and she unknowingly set them free.
Now, her mission of returning home transforms into an elaborate plan to save her lineage. Can Dianna convince the crew to change their minds? There’s only one way to charm a bunch of blood-thirsty pirates; through their captain. But can she tame the devil’s heart before it’s too late? Or will she sacrifice herself to save the man hidden underneath it all?
