    Summary

    Emma Swan is neither especially righteous nor inherently ethical.

    She’s got deft fingers, that’s all. Ones that make picking New York City pockets a breeze and ensures her childhood recruitment into the small band of time-traveling thieves employed by Robert Gold is almost entirely reasonable.

    The jobs are always simple. Travel through time, find the magical objects of the past, bring them back to the present in order to restore that same present’s fledgling magic, and Emma’s good at it. She’s not trying to save magic. It’s just a fun byproduct. Until one last job in the eighteenth-century Caribbean, at the height of the Golden Age of Piracy, threatens to upset the steady schedule of Emma’s life.

    Her instructions are straightforward: Find Killian Jones, find the Unspoken Waters, get back home. Only the longer Emma stays in the past, the more convoluted it all becomes, and for the first time, the job isn’t easy. Because this isn’t the first time she’s met Killian Jones.

    Summary

    Emma’s life had always been carefully curated for her as the daughter of a Navy Admiral. To follow in her mothers footsteps: meet and marry a suitable husband and be the best wife possible. But what she hadn’t expected was for her father to be reassigned halfway around the world to Egypt, and she certainly had never expected to meet and fall in love with a man so opposed to everything her father stood for...

    Summary

    They say that he's the king of the street rats, that when you fall in with him, you’ll never go hungry again, that he has a harem of women from all over the world who will trek for miles and miles to share his bed. Emma doesn’t really know about that harem thing, but the “never go hungry again” bit is enough to catch her interest after (at least most of) a life on the street.
