The Pirate Lord (Lord Trilogy #1)
A Splendid Opportunity
A shipload of women--theirs for the taking! Pirate captain Gideon Horn couldn't be more delighted. His men are tired of wandering the high seas and want to settle down with wives on the uncharted island paradise they've discovered. And the women are bound to be grateful to be rescued from the life of drudgery awaiting them in New South Wales . . .
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
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
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
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
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
-Pirates want to get married
-Pirates have issues with abandonment
-Pirates are incredibly romantic; when having sex with virgins, they constantly ask them if they are hurting them
-Pirates are actually attractive and do not smell bad
-Pirates like to tell small children stories and cuddle with them in bed
"Obey me, me lady, or I will brandish you with my saber." (He SO did not mean saber.)

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
Gideon is known as The Pirate Lord, a pirate who preyed on ships owned and transporting aristocrats. 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

Meski kewalahan ngadepin ad...more
The book starts off on the wrong foot with a TSTL heroine move. She wants to sail to Australia on a convict ship as a part of her charity work. This is stupidly dangerous - she is almost guaranteed rape, starvation or disease. But off she goes - she is well aware of the danger, she claims. Yet she acts all shocked - shocked! - w...more
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
#ceritanya terlalu kebetulan. di mana para bajak laut
#Gideon, sang kapten sepenuhnya percaya
Sara does not quite fit in, she is neither a noble nor a commoner and she spends most of her time trying to help people. In one such effort, she joins a ship full of convict women on their way to Australia to spend their sentences, determined to see firsthand the conditions they are kept under on the journey and help them as much as she can.
Gideon is an infamous pirate who targets mostly English noblemen, but has a different target in mind when he captures the convict ship...more

She tried to imagine a humble Gideon, but it was impossible. Such a creature would be beyond even the Almighty's powers of imagination.”
