I am looking for a book that was published in 1985 or 86 or earlier. I'm pretty sure about that because I read it in the summer of 1986. And all I can remember about it was that there were two brothers, Corbin and Tarquin, and I think they were either sea captains or pirates. That's all I remember and I know it's very little but if those names jiggle any memories please let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated. wanda d.

Was it a shorter series/cateogry book or was it a longer length novel?

It was a full length historical romance. I also think both brothers had romances in the book. Please, if anyone can help, thank you.

Who knew there were so many romance heroe's named Tarquin.  I've never seen it before.
