Books for a Pirate


It’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Recommendations anyone? I know Jayne is particularly found of Marsha Canham’s, The Iron Rose. The most recent pirate/privateer book I recall reading was Jane Feather’s Almost a Lady. Other Pirate related books:

Anyone have recommendations for a good pirate adventure? (More pirate related titles at Likes Books.)

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Darlene Marshall’s ebooks Captain Sinister’s Lady and Pirate’s Price. I also like her Smuggler’s Bride, which isn’t a pirate book per se, but is peopled with some ex-pirates.

    I enjoy Mrs. Marshall’s pirate books and have done reviews of all of them.

    Is there piracy in The Charm School? I loved the book but although it took place on board a ship I don’t think there were pirates in it.

    Kinley McGregor has a couple of pirate romances. One was good and the other was a shocker, but they’re out there!

    I know this is an old post about pirates but for any other pirate lovers that happen to come along Mad Kestrel, by Misty Massey, is a pretty hot pirate book. Not a romance genre, but there are some sparks that fly.
