Falling For the Pirate-1600CMYKAmber Lin: Why Does a Pirate Make a Great Hero?

Thanks so much to Sarah for having me today! I’m excited to share my release with Entangled Scandalous. Falling for the Pirate is a historical romance with a brooding hero and the heroine who isn’t afraid of him…much 😉

When I came up for the idea for my historical romance series, I decided to call it Men of Fortune. That’s a historical term for pirates—which all four of my heroes are. Or, they were pirates. Now they’re reformed and trying to run a legit shipping business, but those shadows and secrets keep dragging them back. They have to fight to break free, and in the process, they find love. The heroines who love them are fierce in their own right. For them, a (barely) reformed pirate is the perfect hero. Here’s why…

He’s loyal. A crew relied on the men working together as a team for success. That included sailing the ship, capturing other ships—and in the case of the Men of Fortune, working with his band of brothers in the investment firm.

He’s protective. As captain, his crew would follow him anywhere, and he takes that responsibility seriously. In Falling for the Pirate, the hero Nate has also started a school for street boys to learn how to be a sailor, and provides food and safe shelter while they do so.

He’s confident. Well, he’d have to be to confront other ships in battle. It’s a confidence born of experience, a jaded wisdom that comes from seeing the worst of mankind—and of himself. But Juliana, the heroine of Falling for the Pirate, sees the best in him.

He’s a little bit wild. Okay, a lot wild. Nate has had to be determined and even feral to survive on the streets, in prison, and on the high seas. He snarls and growls at anyone who comes near. The heroine can tame him… but sometimes pirates are better untamed.

He’s good with his hands. Well, all those knots he’s had to tie. Enough said.

For those reasons and more, the heroines in the Men of Fortune series are very pleased with their heroes, dark pasts and all.

Thanks again to Sarah for having me today to share my new release. If you decide to read Falling for the Pirate, I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading ❤ – Amber

Falling For the Pirate-1600CMYKFalling for the Pirate

Vengeance is a dish best served in bed…

London, 1820

After the deaths of his parents and a dark, troubled childhood, Captain Nate Bowen vowed he would have his revenge. But he never expected to have the tool of his revenge dropped so neatly into his lap. Juliana Hargate is not only the daughter of his enemy, but is destitute, very much alone—and exquisitely desirable.

And now that Nate has saved her life, she’s at his complete mercy…

Captive. All Juliana wanted was to clear her father’s name. Instead, she’s been struck with amnesia—unable to recall even her name—and imprisoned by a tall, imposing, and entirely unscrupulous pirate. A pirate whose eyes seem to look past her skirts and many petticoats, and whose touch sends delicious ripples of desire through her. With every passing day, she finds herself tempted to give him the very thing he’s determined to take
