New York Times best-seller Virginia Henley is the author of 30 lush and lusty historical romances and 5 short stories. Her books are published in 16 languages around the world. She is the recipient of a dozen awards including a Lifetime Achievement Award from Romantic Times, A Maggie Award for Excellence from the Georgia Romance Writers, and a Waldenbook Award for top-selling long historical for 1994.The St. Petersburg Times calls Henley "The Queen of Steamy Romance."Kathe Robin, RT Book Reviews says: "Henley's gift for bringing remarkable women to life in colorful, turbulent times is what turns her romances into keepers. Henley heats up the pages with her love scenes, and her skill at portraying actual historical personages with humanity while maintaining historical accuracy wins our minds. Henley knows what historical romance is all about and always gives the readers what they want."Henley says: "My hero is always dark, dominant and dangerous. Then I create a woman who is a match for him...or more than a match!Men come up to me at conferences and thank me for writing my books. One man said, "I don't read them, but I always know when my wife is reading a Henley!"My last book The Dark Earl is now available in a mass market edition and is the third in my Peers Of The Realm series following The Decadent Duke, and The Irish Duke. The fourth and last book Lord Rakehell will go on sale in November. I have just turned two of my backlist books into Kindle ebooks. Wild Hearts and Bold Conquest are historical romances. My novella Hot As Fire, also available on Kindle, is my only contemporary. I have a short story up on Kindle called Letter of Love that is always FREE. I also have a historical novella ebook called Love And Joy.I also have a new ebook that is a Southern family saga that has never been in print. MASTER OF PARADISE tells the story of Nicholas Peacock who is disinherited of his title and wealth in England. He sails to Charleston, South Carolina, and starts a cotton plantation just before the Civil War disrupts everyone's life.As well I have an historical novella A Rough Wooing, set in the Scottish Borders that has never appeared in print.I am presently writing a scandalous Regency novella.I love to hear from my readers. email: Virhenley@aol.com or view my website: http://www.virginiahenley.com or leave a message on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/virginia.henley1

This silly book is one of my "guilty pleasure" books. I love the English history she weaves into the story, the descriptions of court, and the pirates. I'm a sucker for a good pirate story.
