Nothing screams true love like a pirate saving a girl’s life and after that’s how carpenter-slash-pirate, Drake and medium, Heather first met, their reacquaintance is less dramatic—albeit only just—after she encounters the ghost of his young nephew...who died 250 years earlier.

Pirate's Persuasion is the fourth book in the Sentinels of Savannah, and I haven't read the rest of the series (yet), so bear with me!
The pirate crew of the Sea Dog is immortal because they drank from the Holy Grail approximately 200 years ago. In this book, we will read the story between Drake, one of the pirates, and Heather, a medium who can hear dead people. - She, from what I have gathered, has already appeared in a previous book and met Drake and the crew, though not enough to know their s

For all that is yummy and delicious, this Pirate story is simply amazing! I was hooked from the first page on. I couldn't resist an immortal pirate that resembles Thor and works with his hands. Who could? The main character Heather is a strong and kind woman. She has the gift of sight and is able to communicate with the spirits. When a young spirit boy comes to her for help, she jumps at a chance to help the irresistible Drake. Drake who's an immortal pirate has a secret he's been keeping for ov ...more

Eternity is a long time to carry guilt and be alone. Drake Cole has been carrying the loss of his nephew in his heart since the boy died on the Sea Dog long ago. Now the ghost of his nephew is back and trying to save Drake. Medium Heather Storrey is the one who has been delivering the messages. But it is the love they share that will save or destroy him. I was enthralled by this story. Heather is unique in looks and personality. She is the balm to Drakes troubled soul. I ached for these two and ...more

I’ve been reading this author for a while, and I was excited to see another book in this series as I enjoyed the previous ones. I admit it took me a little to get involved in this story whereas the other ones were immediate. I have to say upfront, I think I was not in the mood for a romance when I started this; I’ve been off of them a little. However, it didn’t take long to settle in and enjoy the great writing and getting to learn more about the characters I’ve followed for a while. I think I’m ...more

Wow, I tore through this book in record time. This is Book 4 in the Sentinels of Savannah series, and I have not read the first three. I was able to follow the story fine, but there is obvious backstory that I missed without reading the others. I do plan to read the first three and that's a testament to how much this story grabbed me. Now I want to know more!

Very well done and highly recommended. This is not a usual genre for me but it blurs between romance/sci-fi/mystery so well I loved it.
I actually liked the characters, you know just enough about them to be invested and to follow the story. Imagery is very well done so you feel as if you are there. And twists and turns throughout.
Pirate’s Persuasion has a great storyline, awesome even. Ms. Kessler’s writing is very good and she weaves an interesting tale that actually hooked me and prompted me

The perfect blend of mystery, intrigue, magic, and romance as another immortal pirate finds his match in Lisa Kessler’s Pirate’s Persuasion !

I just knew there was more to the story when it came to Drake and Heather and I love how Lisa Kessler continues to bring in new aspects of magic and the paranormal into this series. I loved how the mystery of Drake and Heather’s timeless connection unfolded and how that intertwined with Heather’s family gifts. These two seem to be destined to mi
This was definitely worth the wait - what a fantastic addition to this enthralling series! Having said that, I believe it work well as a standalone, too. I was taken straight back into the action as the immortal pirates have another of their crew in danger and finding love on the way!

Pirate's Persuasion by Lisa Kessler is an outstanding love story with complex but endearing characters who will steal your heart. While trying to survive betrayal and destruction Heather and immortal pirate Drake find a love that will last through time itself. Once I started reading they stole my heart to the very end making me unable to put it down until I had finished reading the very last word. Like me it will sure become the favorite book of my favorite series written Lisa Kessler.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Pirate's Persuasion by Lisa Kessler is book 4 in the Sentinels of Savannah Series. This is the story of Heather Storrey and Drake Cole. I have read the previous books (loved them!) which added to my enjoyment of this book/series. But, I did feel you could make it a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Drake and his crew are Immortal after a curse but they are in danger. Drake has guilt from the past that is working into is obsession that starts to worry the people around him. Heather is a mediu

Fun pirate lore and that Heather can communicate with ghosts. Plus, love all the different magical aspects to this series; the artifacts and such. It all makes for a fun adventure! There’s some good passion between Heather and Drake too. I was liking Heather in the beginning of the story; how honest and straight forward she was, but then she started making too many moron decisions, so I knocked down the rating. She tells a stranger she met online all about secret information, and some of her dec ...more

I can't remember the last time I read a pirate romance. This one did not disappoint. I'm giving it 4.5 stars.

Drake Cole is an immortal pirate. Two hundred years ago he and the rest of the Sea Dog crew sank with their ship. A young stowaway died that night. And he's contacted local medium Heather Storrey with a message for Drake and asks her to protect Drake from the woman controlling his spirit.

When Heather delivers the spirit's message, he is attacked, hearing the scream of a banshee.

Ghosts are coming out in droves and a banshee is on the loose messing with Drake and Heather. As a medium Heather can talk to ghosts and relay messages. With her silvery hair, light blue eyes and albino skin she looks ethereal to Drake who is drawn to her. As they work through their feelings with each other and try to find out who is behind calling forth the ghosts there is a lot of danger and a final sacrifice for Heather and Drake to be together.

The pirates return to save the day and to find love and peace with the story of Drake and Heather. Twists, action, drama and emotion abound.

Amazingly good! From page one, I was consumed in the story. It’s always great to revisit characters from previous books, but one problem for me is not including them enough. The author incorporated the previous characters perfectly. I was able to enjoy them again and the main characters were able to shine. Shine they did. What an adventure! It was action-packed and full of twists. Book provided by NetGalley.

I love, love, love this series!!! Lisa Kessler is one of my favorite authors! In fact, I have read every one of her published books. I have never been disappointed with any of her stories and this one is one of the best even though she suffered a traumatic event while she was writing this book. Lisa is very adept at taking a known fact and putting her own twist on it to develop a intriguing plot for a story. If you like pirates, mediums and evil twin sisters, this is the book for you

Each book in this series is better than the previous and I loved this one.
It's an engrossing and enjoyable read.
The plot is fast paced and action packed, the world building is interesting and the characters are fleshed out.
Highly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
I love this series. We return to the Sea Dog crew for the boats carpenter Drake. He’s always been tormented by past choices that now the witches who have targeted him are making it worse. Local median and ghost whisperer Heather has noticed the unrest and increased activity happening around Savannah. When a boy sends her to help the man who saved her life, well she’s getting into a whole lot more than she could ever expect.

Originally published at Reading Reality

Pirate’s Persuasion is the 4th book in the Sentinels of Savannah series, which began with Magnolia Mystic. And that’s probably where you should start if you haven’t already met the crew of the Sea Dog. (You don’t really HAVE to, but you probably should read at least the first one first!)

You would think a story about pirates would be historical romance, but this isn’t. And you would think that a series about immortals still living in a haunted city would be

This is, just as its predecessor, one of those books where I have nothing really positive nor negative to say about it. It was kind of in the middle with an okay plot, fine writing and an somewhat satisfying ending. It was nothing that really stood out or caught my interest well enough for me to get invested, and that made the story underwhelming and bland for me.

While the writing is on a level that makes the story easy to follow and gives the reader something to bite on to with the suspense, r

This is the fourth book in the series about a crew of immortal pirates from the 17th century, who now find themselves living and loving in the 21st century. These books are the tales of how each crew member finds love and a renewed joy for living, while putting their pirate skills to good use.

The crew also has a replica of their original ship, The Sea Dog, built lovingly and determinedly by the hands of Drake Cole, the ship’s carpenter. Drake has spent most of the past 200 plus years working tir

This is book 4 in the Sentinel's of Savannah series and while it could be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the previous books before this one as a lot of the backstory is talked about previously and these characters met in the previous book. In this one we get Drake Cole and Heather Storrey's story. Drake is the carpenter for the ship and while since he became immortal he has become known for his custom wordworking and restorations.

Interesting thought.

Drake shook his head. “I’d die for her.”
