Let’s be honest: nicknames are rather awesome. We have “McDreamy” and “McSteamy” from Grey’s Anatomy, “Kitten” from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Lux series — and this month’s historical recommendations offer up even more epic monikers.

To start things off, Alison DeLaine makes a sensational debut with A Gentleman ‘Til Midnight, in which Lady Katherine Kinloch is not just any ordinary lady — she’s also known as Corsair Kate, an infamous sea captain. Between trying to save her family’s estate and rejoicing in her hard-won freedom, Katherine manages to save a man from the sea. Captain James Warre doesn’t realize his savior is the same woman he helped capture. When he does, he assumes a new identity as the two struggle to fight off mutual attraction.
