Living the life of a pirate takes a toll, Captain Gideon Horn known as the Pirate Lord, finally decided to settle down and live his life on an isolated Island. The crew agreed, all they needed was women to make their life complete. Stopping an English women convict transport would be just what they needed. Rescuing the convict women didn't go as planned because of the reformer, do-gooder Sara Willis. She was on board as the teacher of these women, trying to prepare them for going to the prison Island of New South Wales, but in reality, she was the step-sister to a great Lord. Sara was just the type of person to make Gideon's resentment of the English upper class boil over and drive him crazy.
*** 3 - Set in 1818, this is a basic Historical Romance. Very enjoyable, the characters could have had a little more depth. The only one that captured me was Gideon. Mostly it was predictable, the ending was a little bit of a cliche and wrapped up so fast. The build up was great, but the conclusion seemed rushed then the epiloge skipped some conversations that could have been great. This is the 1st in a trilogy, I enjoyed this one enough that I will look for the next one (The Forbidden Lord) and the third (The Dangerous Lord).
