He did, however, strike a pose with us.
Yes, we chased him down - cell phone cameras in hand.
This Jack was awesome. He stayed in character and we got our picture
Alas, Jack could not be a hero in one of my books. He'd really, really, REALLY need to be redeemed. He could be a secondary character though. He could be a crusty old uncle that only the heroine seems to connect with. Or, he'd be the one with a secret both the H and H need if this were a suspense. Or, he could cock his head to the side and say, "Matey, why is it ye haven't said much about a Heartwarming Historical line? Could be me contacts be keeping things from me."
LOL, can you imagine Jack Sparrow in Heartwarming? And if so, where?
Go ahead, shiver me timbers with your ideas.
