Ahoy, me hearties! Katherine Bone here to let you know that The Pirate’s Duchess, A Regent’s Revenge Novella, releases today! Huzzah and Hoorah! Break open a cask and let’s celebrate pirate style!!!

Throughout all of my books, duty and honor play significant roles. If you’re familiar with me or my bio, you can probably guess why. My military background has been a major influence on me.

I’m extremely excited to tell you about the release of my new Regent’s Revenge Series, a new adventure celebrating pirates (Of course!!!) and codes of honor. In The Pirate’s Duchess, I enjoyed playing with the idea of two people separated by circumstances beyond their control. One has been on a mission of vengeance. The other has finally learned to live again. What happens when a sinister event forces our hero to return and save his wife? (Yes! You heard that right! Lies and betrayals galore!!!)

Release Day for The Pirate’s Duchess & #Giveaway


, , , , , , , , , ,

Pirates ARR back! Daring do, swashbuckle, sword fights, reunion of a duke and duchess, vengeance, robbing from the rich to give to the poor, love, betrayal, lies, and more! It’s all here, me hearties in one fast-paced novella introducing the Black Regent, his ship… the Fury, and his merry crew.

I had so much fun writing The Pirate’s Duchess, a Regent’s Revenge Novella! It’s my new Poldark meets The Princess Bride meets Robin Hood series. Of course, pirates are my thing. (Who knew?) Have been since I started reading Johanna Lindsey‘s Mallory Series and Fern Michaels‘s Captive Series long ago. Now, as I pen my own books, there is nothing more fulfilling than finishing a good epic adventure-packed romance story! I hope readers come to love my books even a smidgen as much as I’ve enjoyed books by the authors I’ve read.

Today, I’m celebratin’ BIG!!! Huzzah and Hurrah! Join me, won’t you?

ThePIrate'sDuchessFINALDuty forces him to take on the pirate code, but honor brings him back.

Prudence, Duchess of Blackmoor, has one desire—to be happy again. After struggling to overcome the horrifying death of her husband, she accepts an earl’s offer of marriage, confident she’s taking a step in the right direction. But demons, refuse to die, and Prudence finds herself caught in an intricate web of deceit that threatens the very foundations of all she holds dear.

Tobias, the Duke of Blackmoor, crosses the line when an assassination attempt on him fails. To restore the reputations of friends under attack by the same villain, and ensure his wife’s safety, he stages his own death, becoming The Black Regent, a notorious pirate bent on brandishing justice, never thinking he’d survive. But to his amazement, he has, and now the darkest-kept secrets are not worth losing the duchess his wife has become.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Pratt, desperately in love with Olivia, discovers an old diary that reveals shocking secrets.

Katherine Bone’s ~ Smuggling in the Looe!

Heading: Embracing Romance in: 19th century, historical romance, history, Katherine Bone, novella, Regency Romance, romance, Series

One of the best things about writing historical romance is discovering GREAT nuggets that set a story in time, bringing fully-fledged characters to life! People are just people after all, aren’t they? No matter the time or place, human beings are… well… human, privy to any number of emotions. Having said that, I can honestly say, historical romance is a true art form. It takes more than knowing about emotion to plot a story and make it enjoyable. And it takes immeasurable time to learn about an era and become familiar enough with it to make readers feel as though they are there, experiencing a hero’s and heroine’s lives.

Making magic happen = EPIC adventure! Huzzah!!!

On any given day, I’m either writing or digging into research. Recently, I stumbled on some great information about the Cornish Coast for my Regent’s Revenge Series. The Pirate’s Debt, Regent’s Revenge Book #2, takes place along the coast and between Looe and Polperro. While Polperro isn’t new to me—the Seaton’s home, a fictional cove in Talland Bay, is featured throughout my Nelson’s Tea Series—Looe is.

What is it about Cornwall that calls to me?

Friday Fun Facts- Ghost Ships

Feast your eyes on this #FreebooterFriday tale!


What makes a ghost ship? There are those that appear with no crew and every piece of identification stripped from their being. Then, there are the ones that show up looking as if the crew abandoned her mid meal. All belongings and cargo accounted for- just no men. What happened? Where did these ships sail to before they met their mysterious end?

Too many questions, not enough answers.020914_2

  1. 2012.( That surprised you, I bet.) It’s not all ancient stories. A luxury vessel drifted into Ft. Lauderdale. Running lights still on, the engine purring, but no captain. In fact, his wallet and cell phone were still by the wheel. Authorities looked for any crew for weeks. No bodies, no wreckage, no ransom notes, nothing.
  2. 1813. A schooner was destroyed in Nova Scotia by one of its crew mates, killing everyone. The ghost ship appeared for the next two years, witnessed by…

Talkin’ About the Life of a Swordsman at Embracing Romance Today!

Katherine Bone’s En Garde! Life of a Swordsman!

8e82abf553e11a6664949ac04729fdcc“A rogue does not laugh in the same way that an honest man does; a hypocrite does not shed the same sort of tears as fall from the eyes of a man of good faith. All falsehood is a mask, and however well made the mask may be, with a little attention we may always succeed in distinguishing it from the true face.” ~ Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers

For a swordsman, steel is just an extension of the arm.

One of the particular things I’ve enjoyed researching while writing my Regency pirate romance books is the art of sword fighting. Craftily forged steel only asks to be polished and sharpened like the mind of its master. Steel doesn’t need to be reloaded. When placed in a talented, resourceful, and courageous man’s hands, no situation is too formidable, no success too far out of reach.

When man and steel become one, there is swashbuckling to be done! [You can quote me on it! 😉 ]

Accomplished rogues + Codes of honor = Major swashbuckle!

Head on over to Embracing Romance to read the rest of my post today!
