Delilah Delacroix is quite literally at the end of her rope when she meets Captain James Stirling, an 18th Century pirate that has somehow managed to travel through time to the 20th Century. Upon the death of her loveable, but free-spending uncle, Delilah discovers she is near bankruptcy and stands to lose her only source of income, the run-down Key West art gallery he left her. She has no money for her college tuition, and her husband is leaving her for a MAN. Certain that nothing short of suicide could be a possible solution, she decides to do the deed on Halloween night, during the biggest celebration on the island. James appears in the nick of time, and thwarts Delilah's plan. In the space of less than 24 hours, "Smiling Jim," turns her life upside down and gives her a new reason to live...and the courage to love again.
