HIGH SEAS STOWAWAY, JAN., HARLEQUIN

When I started reading historical romances as a teenager, pirate stories were some of my favorites. I loved the dashing heroes, the intrepid heroines, the danger on the high seas. What could be more exciting? I'm very glad to see a resurgence of the subgenre and to have the chance to write one myself. I had the most fun researching the Caribbean setting -- and spending time with the dashing, dangerous hero of High Seas Stowaway, Balthazar!

I think the enormous popularity of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies definitely has something to do with it. I was very inspired by them myself, especially by Orlando Bloom's character in the last film, At World's End. The head scarf, the earring, the bare chest, all that climbing of rigging -- sigh. It's a wonderful thing to have a job where watching Pirates of the Caribbean over and over is considered vital research!
