Ahoy there! Sorry…I just finished “The Pirate Lord” re-release of the 1998 novel by Sabrina Jeffries and I’m having a bit of a problem coming back to this reality. There’s just something about a man with a bandanna and an earring…and maybe a parrot…ooh, and a sword…a really, really, BIG sword! Ahem, excuse me. It’s that whole reality thing again. So anyway, hot pirates ahead (check out the new cover, mmmmmm, delicious). And lots of humor and witty dialogue ...more
Captain Gideon Horn, the notorious Pirate Lord, and his crew of not-such-cutthroat pirates, are keen to settle down to a life of domestic bliss on an island paradise. All they need now are wives! Kidnapping ...more

"Obey me, me lady, or I will brandish you with my saber." (He SO did not mean saber.)

I really liked this heroine. She had the perfect balance of strength, vulnerability, and goodness. Sara is a reformer. She is one that seeks to make a difference in the lives of hurting people around her. She is not shallow, materialistic, and selfish. She is a giver. It is these characteristics that ...more
The first page let me know just what I was in store for. She said she’d known a great many awkward moments in her 23 years, then proceeds to list only 3, not 1 of which is awkward. She filched biscuits from the grand kitchen. That’s not awkward in any way, shape or form. I’ve read idk how many books with situations like this, and it’s just pathetic. She fell in the fountain at her mother and stepfather’s wedding. That’s not awkward either, just clumsy and stupid. Then she introduced a l ...more
Gideon is one of the sexiest heroes I've read about in quite a while - the perfect pirate. And Sara's stubborness and strong will placed her in quite a few ...more
I loved this book so much! It was a really fast and nice read and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I loved all the characters, especially Gideon (our super sexy captain), Sara and Silas. I even ended liking (kinda) Queenie!
The story isn't that much original, to be honest. It's about a pirates' crew that wants to leave piracy behind and get... Wives! So when they get to know about Chastity, a ship full of women. Captain Horn, aka Lord Pirate, has the idea of taking them all to the ...more
I loved the hero, but at times the heroine got on my nerves with all her prushish behavior. I wanted to scream at her.. "Sleep with him already damn it!" YES that's a big YES for sexual tension.
I liked that the hero never succombed to bedding another woman during his frustrating times with the heroine.. ok this may not be realistic, but this is fiction, and ...more
This was a really fun story... Incredibly sappy and sometimes ridiculous, but still really fun. Recommended if you need something that will make you smile but not have to think. (Seriously. Don't take this story to heart, it's just meant to be enjoyed for what it is)
He's a pirate captain. He's been preying on British ships for years and is feared throughout the seven seas. But I just don't know how he got that way without either killing himself or getting caught because he just doesn't think things through very well. Also, he goes practically catat ...more
I really did enjoy the book. I had not read much of Sabrina Jeffries before and found her writing style to be smooth with the storyline flowing easily. I will assuredly pick up a few more of hers in the future. I guess it was the main characters that I just couldn't bring myself to love. I like that Sara ...more
A woman Sara is not quite a lady, but an adopted daughter of a lord. Her parents are both dead & she lives with her stepbrother who is an earl. Who cares? Right? LOL... anyway, she is some womens rights activist and she decides she is taking the ship ride to austrailia with women convicts to protect them from the sailors who will treat them as whores once their journey is well on their way.
What awaits them in Austrai ...more

His mother had been an aristocrat and had left him as an infant with his father in America to return to her 'beloved' England. His father had treated him cruelly due to Gideon reminding his father of his mother and her betrayal of them both.
Sara is the ...more

***Review is based on three quarters of completion***
I'm in the middle of reading, and I have to say it is without-a-doubt a spectacular novel!
Full of dramatic, insatiable, amorous scenes between Gideon & Sara, which have caused me to read every last tidbit I could before succumbing to slumber!
Well done Ms. Jeffries, I'm eagerly awaiting to discover the conclusion of what has occurred between Capt. Horn & Miss Willis, ...more
Unlike many romance fans, I dislike pirates as romance heroes. Mainly because it requires too much of suspension of belief on my part. Noble, honorable men as pirates who fall in love with some woman they capture. It's pure fantasy. Plus the dubious consent issue. No one held prisoner can fully give their consent. So this book is a no-no for me.
Every cliché a person could feasibly attach to a paperback "bodice-ripping" romance novel can be attached to this one.

So the reason I’m reading these pirate romance novels is because I want to see how they’re set up, what kind of plot elements are involved, what the characters are like, how it ends, that whole shebang. And I’m re ...more

“Yes. It’s due you because of your rank.” An impish smile crossed her face. “You didn’t even have to brandish your saber in front of them to get it. Fancy that. It must be a new experience for you.”
He cast her a sidelong glance. “If you don’t show me some respect, my dear wife, I’ll have to brandish my . . . er . . . saber in front of you later when we’re alone.”
She tried to imagine a humble Gideon, but it was impossible. Such a creature would be beyond even the Almighty's powers of imagination.”
