Best Pirate, Privateer and High Seas Romances!

Who doesn’t love a good pirate or privateer story? All that capturing, swashbuckling and romancing on the high seas—oh yes! Gets my blood boiling just thinking about it.

And, if you want to read a seafaring adventure with a British privateer hero, you might enjoy my novels, To Tame the Wind and Wind Raven. Both feature a pirate and a lusty sea captain. And for a pirate’s second chance at love, try Echo in the Wind with the dashing Jean Donet, comte de Saintonge.


For Norse pirates and a hero who became the first Lord of the Isles, you’ll want to read Summer Warrior.
