We’ve seen a few of the Dukes of War before (I’ve got links below) and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be sharing Ridley’s latest.  I love a dashing pirate and I have to say that Captain Blackheart seems like quite the rogue … just my type 🙂

Dukes of War series

by Erica Ridley

Release Date December 1, 2015

Publisher Intrepid Reads

Length 200 pages (40-45k)

Genre Historical Romance


Captain Blackheart leads a simple life of roving the seas, wenching and treasure-hunting. He steers clear of romantic entanglements that could tie him to land. He shouldn’t have any trouble keeping his hands off the gently-bred lady he’s commissioned to abduct—except his cargo turns out to be feisty and passionate! She’d be a prize worth treasuring, if having her aboard didn’t jeopardize everything…

Clara Halton thought the worst loss she could suffer was to be stripped of her family, stricken with consumption, and left to die alone. Then she meets Blackheart. Their attraction is ruinous…and irresistible. When he delivers her like so much plunder, his mission is over — but hers has just begun. She’ll force him to acknowledge their connection, even if she must storm his ship to do it!

The Pirate’s Tempting Stowaway is a standalone story in the Dukes of War regency romance series, featuring roguish peers and dashing war heroes who return from battle only to be thrust into the splendor and madness of Regency England.
