HaBO: Couple Leads Secret, Separate Lives as Pirates

This HaBO comes from Gloriamarie, who wants to find this historical romance:

Recently, I remembered reading a truly crazy sauce romance. Unfortunately I don’t remember much of it. But what I do remember has my head spinning.

There is a husband and his wife. He may have a title. They have been married for a while and it’s kinda stale. The interesting thing is that they are both pirates. Each wears a mask. Somehow they meet in their pirates’ disguises and passionate sexy times ensue while still wearing their masks.

I have never understood how they didn’t recognize each other, their bodies, the way they touch each other etc. but they don’t.

Anyway, they continue to meet and have an affair with someone they don’t think is their spouse but eventually they figure it out and they fall madly in love with each other. Apparently, the lesson to be learned from this is the way to refresh a stale marriage is sex with masks.

An important lesson, for sure!

    Is it Desire in Disguise by Rebecca Brandewyne?

  2. Muffled says:

    This is “The Pina Colada Song” with added pirates!

  3. Jaer says:

    Sounds like Catherine Hart’s Fire & Ice. Which also had a sequel, Ashes & Ecstasy.
    Fire & Ice
    Kathleen Haley is a beautiful Irish lass who inherits her father’s fleet of ships. Kathleen is skilled at sailing, swordsmanship, and possesses a unique connection to the sea and its creatures, talents known only to a select few.

    Now she must sail to Savannah to reside with relatives. On the voyage, circumstances force her to marry the captain hired to escort her. Reed Taylor also has family and owns a plantation in Savannah. Kathleen is convinced he has wed her only to claim her wealth and her fleet, and she vows revenge.

    Landing first in Louisiana, Kathleen learns that Reed is associated with Jean Lafitte. Furious that Reed intends to outfit the ship for his pirating ventures while dumping her in Savannah, Kathleen blackmails him. She won’t reveal his piracy if he does not reveal their marriage.

    Upon the arrival of another of her ships in Savannah, Kathleen has her crew hide and refit it. She then disguises herself as Emerald, daring lady pirate, and the adventures begin.

    @Muffled – with a side helping of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

    @Amy, the description doesn’t match my memories.

  6. Gloriamarie Amalfitano says:

    @Jaer, sorry, that doesn’t match my memory of the story.

  7. Nadia8290 says:

    It sounds quite a lot like Lord and Lady Spy by Shana Galen. Married couple and each of them secretly a spy. However no pirates.

  8. Taylor says:

    @muffled, I laughed so loudly at your comment that I startled the rest of the house 🙂

  9. DonnaMarie says:

    I’m with @Amy. Rebecca Brandewyne immediately came to mind.

  10. Laura says:

    I want to read this book!

  11. Kim says:

    I’ve read both the Brandewyne and Catherine Hart’s books. Desire in Disguise is during the French Revolution – very Scarlet Pimpernel-like. While they are masked and have their own ships, I don’t remember that they were actually pirates.
