It’s back aboard the Sea Dog for boatswain John Smyth’s romance with his employee and thief-with-a-heart, Harmony who has something the crew are on the hunt for.

description You believe in the myth of Pandora’s box?”

Following the series theme so far of immortal pirate falling for human and the potential heartbreak that scenario will bring in the future, there’s plenty of push/pull as John and Harmony give into their feelings and, as the title suggests, there’s much pleasure to be had.

This series just keeps on getting better – I’m loving reading it!

This is book 3 of the Sentinels of Savannah series and I would absolutely read the books before it so you understand everything that is happening in this book. This one is about John Smyth and Harmony Andrews. John has been in charge of his crew's money for more time than he can remember. And when he and his crew are tasked with finding and recovering Pandora's Box, he thinks to leave Harmony in charge of his company. Never realizing that she was the one who took the box to begin with in order t ...more

Immortal pirates...loved it. We get John and Harmony. John, our immortal pirate, is smitten with a modern day pirate who has gotten her hands on Pandora's box, which is, of course, real since John is immortal after drinking from the Holy Grail. There's a lot of mythology and fun in this story. Two pirates and trusting... how can that go wrong? What an adventure for these two to find their HEA. Great heat between the characters.
Sped right through this one. Excellent weekend read.

Our third outing with the Sea Dog Crew!

John was the money man of the crew, the one who made sure each crewmember got his fair share of the booty. Not much has changed then, now he's a financial adventurer in the stock markets! He can't believe someone has such a line on investments as Harmony. He thinks she could be the one to take over his firm when he has to "die". But Harmony is keeping secrets and they may come back to bite her!

Harmony is done with being poor. Sure, she takes risks but they

Pirate's Pleasure by Lisa Kessler is Book 3 of the Sentinels of Savannah Series.

Yayyy! Back again on the Sea Dog and damn if it just doesn’t keep getting better and better. I quickly learned that Ms. Kessler is no joke when it comes to knocking out a book that will have you quickly immersed into an amazing world of colorful and engaging characters, a defined world and a storyline that will rock your socks!

Great Series

Harmony is a thief, sort of like Robin Hood. She steals ancient artifacts and sells them to the highest bidder. She used the proceeds to help seriously ill people who have no medical insurance get medical treatment. Her heart is in the right place. But the last 2 artifacts she stole had dangerous paranormal gifts. In steps a really old pirate. Takes a thief to steal from a thief? Heck, everyone wants the latest artifact. Game on.

Originally published at Reading Reality

One of the things about human beings is that we all require purpose. That purpose might be a career or a cause, or it might just be the hard work of keeping your family housed and fed and clothed and working to give your kids a better life than you had.

One of the problems of being immortal, or nearly so, is that the world changes and you mostly don’t. That the world passes you by while you stay frozen in it. And that it’s hard to find a purpose when you hav

Taking risks and making money is something that Harmony specializes in. She does it so incredibly well that she has garnered the eye of her boss who also happens to be one of the most eligible bachelors in Savannah. But she has no time to dwell on that though as her private life and drive for her charity has her crossing some lines in order to further the cause. Some things are not quiet what they seem and she finds herself smack dab in the middle of whole lot of danger and trouble.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

This series of immortal pirates is so much fun! This time it is John Smythe's turn to find himself falling for a woman and then the problem of his immortality comes in to play. Can he spent her lifetime and then watch her die or just walk away.

Then there is the whole problem of the stolen relic - Pandora's box and Agent Bale. He has his own agenda when it turns out that the other person assisting Harmony is his relative.

John Smyth is the boatswain of the Sea Dog. A ship that is a copy of the old pirate ship from hundreds of years ago. The special thing about the ship is that the crew are all the original ones who are now immortal because they drank from the holy grail. They have all hidden the truth with various disguises over the years, but stay together and still sail when they can.

Every book I read from Lisa Kessler reminds me why I love her writing so much – from the well-developed plot and characters to a writing style that practically reads the words off the page for me, I never finish a book disappointed. And even though I wasn’t a huge fan of this particular story since I wasn’t totally on board with the relationship between the main characters, this was still an enjoyable read that had me captivated from start to finish.

Lisa Kessler has created a unique, original series with the Sentinels of Savannah. Each story has been an awesome addition to the series. From the beginning this paranormal suspense romance has been full of twists and turns that it can no way be considered predictable. However, no story surprised me more than Pirate’s Pleasure.

The title is perfect because it is a literal and figurative view of pirates which John Smyth was once one. He knows a pirate when he sees one and calls without a skipping

Wow! Goodreads just asked me for my city of birth and date of death... What if I could answer that? Would I live life differently if I knew for sure how much longer I had left?

Interesting thought.

“Were you ever going to tell me?”

“About the Grail?” He returned to the couch and handed her a glass. “I wasn’t planning on it.”

She knocked back the rum and swallowed, setting the empty glass on the table. Impressive.

She met his eyes. “So even if we had slept together last night, you were going to keep telling me you were descended from a pirate, not an actual pirate.”

He took a swig, his gaze locked on hers. “Would you have believed me?”

“No.” She shrugged. “Just wondering how long you would have lied to me.”

“I could ask you the same thing.”

She rolled her eyes. “I played you. There’s a difference.” She shrugged. “Besides that, was before our no lies between us deal.”

“I see this as more of an omission.” He finished off his drink and placed the glass beside hers. “In my defense, I’ve never told anyone who I really am. You’re the first.”

She raised a brow. “Are you saying I should feel…special?”

“Aye.” He cleared his throat. “I’ve never taken a bullet for anyone either, not even my crew.”

“Thanks for that.” A reluctant smile curved her lips as she met his eyes. “Pretty heroic for a pirate.”

He chuckled. “It’s less heroic when you’re certain you won’t die.”

“But you knew it would hurt.”

He nodded slowly. “True.”

She pinched her fingertips close together in the air. “It might’ve been a tiny bit heroic.”

Her dark eyes sparkled with the mischief he was growing much too fond of.

“Not bad for a pirate.” He admitted.”
“He’d never given it much thought before, but every second he spent with her, the yearning to connect, to know every chapter of her story, ate at him. He shouldn’t pry. It was none of his business. After tonight, she’d have her replica to sell for the Digi Robins.

For all he knew, she’d go back to being a broker at his firm, nothing more.

His hand slipped off the ratline and he cursed under his breath. “Damn it.”

“If you fall on me, I’m gonna be pissed.” Harmony called from below.

He grinned in spite of himself as he found his rhythm again. “I’m not fallin’ anytime soon, love.”

But truth be told…he was starting to suspect he’d already had.

For her.”
