Pirate captain Ian Bowers is not sure what to believe when Silas Christian, claiming to be the son of Ian's former captain, rescues Ian from prison. Yet there is something in Silas’ eyes that convinces Ian Silas is telling the truth. 

Fool's Gold is a short story, originally published in Galleons and Gangplanks anthology. The plot illustrates the developing affection between Ian and Silas. There is a touch of drama, with moments of emotional reflections of the past. Ian and Silas are honorable rogues with similar backgrounds. Both men were abandoned by wealthy families and left to make their own way in the world. However, Silas was not a pirate; his only agenda was to find his father’s hidden treasure so that he could live a quiet comfortable life. After spending so many years at sea, Ian did not have any goals for the future. Even with Silas at his side and the love they shared, Ian still could not resist the lure of the sea.  

Mychael Black is proficient in creating steamy and enjoyable intimacy scenes displayed in Fool’s Gold. Nevertheless, a little more action outside the bedroom would have been enjoyable also.
