When Captain Gabriel Drake earns a royal pardon and comes home to Cornwall, he discovers the father with whom he hoped to reconcile has died, along with his older brother. Gabriel suddenly finds himself elevated to lord of the manor with the added complication of being responsible for his 5 orphaned nieces. He's also obliged to wed, bed and breed an heir on a well-born lady as soon as possible to secure the barony or it will be devolved to the Crown. Since Gabriel's pardon for piracy requires him never to enter the city of London again, he can't pursue a bride in typical marriage mart fashion. And the fact that he only wants Jacquelyn Wren, the bastard daughter of a courtesan who couldn't possibly satisfy the King's requirements to become his baroness, means he'll have her any way he can.To protect the orphans in her charge, Jacquelyn has to see the new baron suitably wed to a lady of quality. A few lessons in courting should do the trick nicely. But she forgot one thing. What a pirate wants, a pirate takes… THIS BOOK WAS PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AS PLEASURING THE PIRATE. PRAISE FOR HOW TO PLEASE A PIRATE …"A delightful, witty romance. The dialogue between Jacquelyn and Gabriel is clever and full of such sly fun that the pages really flew by." ~ All About Romance "Loved every minute. The children will make you laugh; Gabe and Jacquelyn's relationship will make you sizzle, and Jacquelyn's personal dilemma will make you cry. A Perfect 10! ~ Romance Reviews Today“A feel-good, fun historical romance with plenty of sexual sizzle! Looks like another winner!” ~ Romance Reader at Heart "This great Georgian romance is filled with bawdy humor, mindful of Fielding's classic Tom Jones." ~ Harriet Klausner

I was able to check out PLEASURING THE PIRATE from the law school library at the same time as I checked out Анна Ахматова, Полное Собрание в Одном Томе, so that was pretty much the most successful library experience ever.__________________________There was this one day, when I lived in Ukraine, wher...

So many romances featuring pirates, and I've never read a one. I *still* have not read one because this book actually takes place on an estate in Cornwall, where the cover model probably felt quite chilled without his shirt. The male lead (I refuse to call him a "hero") spent some time as a pirate a...

Hey, what's this barrel doing here? I think there's something inside it... wait... I don't believe it. A fish. Hello fish! No, don't worry, I have nothing against trashy historical romances. Quite enjoy them in fact. Absolutely no need to get paranoid. Uh-oh. This could be trouble. I see Meredith co...

One of my favorite aphorisms about parenting come from Utah Philips which goes: children are assholes, but they're their own assholes. I don't think my buddy Utah (totally best name ever) meant this as some kind of Rousseauian garbage about the purity of children, but he is implying a purity in the ...
