Best Pirate and Privateer Romances—Love on the High Seas!

Who doesn’t love a good pirate or privateer saga? All that capturing, swashbuckling and romancing on the high seas—Oh yes! My blood is tingling just thinking about it. While there are lots of pirate and privateer romances out there, not all are great ones. Here’s my current list of those I have rated 5 stars on Amazon. They are all truly excellent. Some do not have pirates but in each case, part of the story takes place on the high seas.

·      A Pirate’s Pleasure by Heather Graham Pozzessere
·      The Game by Brenda Joyce
·      Pirate’s Angel by Marsha Bauer
·      Magic Embrace by Jennifer Horsman
·      Across a Moonlit Sea by Marsha Canham, and the sequel, The Iron Rose
·      The Captain of All Pleasures by Kresley Cole
·      The Pirate and the Pagan by Virginia Henley
·      Bound by the Heart by Marsha Canham
·      The Wind and the Sea by Marsha Canham
·      Treasured Embrace by Marsha Bauer
·      Fields of the Sun by Nadine Crenshaw
·      Silver Storm by Cynthia Wright
·      The Hawk and the Dove by Virginia Henley
·      Till Dawn Tames the Night by Megan McKinney
·      Desire in Disguise by Rebecca Brandewyne
·      Broken Wing by Judith James

While not as good as those listed above, I can also recommend these I’ve rated 4 stars:

·      My Wicked Pirate by Rona Sharon
·      The Pirate Lord by Sabrina Jeffries
·      Master of Seduction by Kinley MacGregor
·      Gentle Rogue by Johanna Lindsey
·      The Hidden Heart by Laura Kinsale

I’ll spare you the long list of those I’ve rated 2 and 3 stars; you can see my reviews of those on Amazon.


  1. Wow! I have never read a pirate romance! LOL

    I might have to check one of these out... :)

    Happy New Year Regan!!

    Lisa :)

  2. Lisa, think of pirates as historical vampires (there are some comparisons) and I'm sure you'd feel right at home!

  3. Oh, this is a fabulous list! Thanks for posting this and I do hope my book DUKE BY DAY, ROGUE BY NIGHT might someday make the cut. Blessings!

    1. Katherine,
