I Married a Pirate

I Married a PirateSamantha David

When Camilla bumped into the Pirate on the net, she never dreamed that she’d fall in love with him. He was old, fat and irascible. He wasn’t Errol Flynn. For his part the Pirate didn’t give a bugger what she thought. She was beautiful and he was old enough to be optimistic about life. So he inveigled her onto his pirate ship in the Caribbean…

She finds that her Pirate is real enough: he sails a sixty-foot ketch, has a loyal crew and makes a living from smuggling, racketeering and things that Camilla would rather not think about. But Johnny Depp he certainly ain’t!

The Pirate is the most outrageous lover in literary history, and Camilla is adorable, intelligent, brave and nutty. Together they inhabit a bohemian world of musicians and artists, buccaneers and eccentrics that will seduce you and leave you gasping for more.

Laugh-aloud-funny, adventurous, romantic and filled with sunshine, I Married a Pirate is escapism with a capital ‘E’.
