One benefit of reading pirate romance is that the heroine always gets a happily-ever-after with the swashbuckler who steals her heart. Actual medieval pirates were not so easily won over, however.
Regardless of the time period in which they lived, where they were born, or ship they upon which they sailed, all pirates from history share the same true love – and that is the sea. Many women throughout time have lost their hearts to these men who succumbed to the siren song of the ocean, choosing adventure over romance.
It’s like Jacques Cousteau said, “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
There’s a certain excitement of navigating uncharted waters, using the sun and the stars as a guide. Throw in the threat of storms, pillaging, plundering, and sea monsters, and you have the perfect ingredients for adventure on the high seas, an adventure that few could resist.
And many women lost their hearts to these swarthy swashbucklers. The old saying about sailors having a woman in every port was coined for a reason, after all. Although many of these women were left heartbroken after their brawny buccaneers returned to the sea, some females became pirates themselves!
The heroines of the Pirates of Britannia series help their respective heroes navigate the uncharted territories of their romance using their wits and womanly charms as guides. These women can be counted on to unlock the treasure of their heroes’ hearts for a happily-ever-after, be it on the high seas or dry land.
