From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn together by a shared desire for freedom, their love is as passionate as it is forbidden. Faced with an impossible choice, Teach and Anne must decide whether to chase their dreams and leave England forever—or follow their hearts and stay together.
