This is my first book by Sabrina Jeffries - but it won't be my last. "The Pirate Lord" has everything: intense sexual tension between the two main characters that leads to hot and steamy love scenes, engaging relationships between a colorful cast of secondary characters, quite a few tugs on the old heartstrings and more than plenty of laughs!
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 humorous situations.
I simply adored this book and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Wonderful read, fun and exciting with rich characters
Loved this first book in Jeffries's trilogy!
What a great book! Sabrina Jeffries is one of my favorite authors, her books are always fantastic.
This was a fun story and a great romance!
This book was so-so. It was a little too far fetched. The sex scenes were pretty hot!
This was a great book. All the reviews I have seen have be exceptional. If you like books about pirates, you will love this one.
This book is an excellent beginning of a new trilogy. I have read several books by this author and IMHO this is one of her best to date. The story held my interest; the characters were all well developed and interesting and the ending was excellent. This is a must read for all Jeffries fans.

I think this is my favorite Sabrina Jeffries book!

A Splendid Passion
Married? To pirates? Sara Willis couldn't be more appalled. First she demands proper courting--at least a month. The darkly handsome pirate lord gives them two weeks. Then Sara insists the men vacate their huts for the women--Gideon demands her kisses in return. As the demands heat up, so do their passions--and soon Sara can't remember just why she's fighting the devilishly seductive captain so hard. .
The Pirate Lord is the first book in Sabrina Jeffries Lord Trilogy. Sara Willis, Stepdaughter to the late Earl of Blackmore, has devoted her life to helping those less fortunate than her. She learns that a group of women convicts are being shipped to New South Wales. Despite her brother's opposition Sara obtains passage on the ship as a schoolteacher. Shortly after passage Sara's boat is taken by a group of pirates. The Captain Gideon Horn learns that the ship is full of women and gets the brilliant idea to capture the ship so his men will have wives. Gideon has found an unoccupied island in the tropics and plans to create his own Utopia. His plans don't exactly go as planned once Sara puts her mind to riling up the women to disagree to the idea.
I picked up The Pirate Lord because my good friend Kristie J. recommended it to me. It sounded like a fun, yet silly book and I haven't read a good pirate romance in a while. I was pleasantly surprised that the book wasn't as silly as I feared. It actually had more serious undertones than I expected and was pleasantly surprised. It was a little slow in the middle and the ending was predictable. However, I thought both Gideon and Sara were strong characters.
Sara and Gideon have met their match with the other. Both are used to getting what they want, easily bowling over any opposition. Once they encounter each other it is like fire to water. Both are stubborn in the face of their own wants and beliefs and are not afraid to go after them. Their first encounters are fun to read. The middle part of the book drags a little bit for me because Sara takes so long to come to the conclusion that Gideon is a good man. It is pretty obvious to the reader that he is a decent guy despite his kidnapping a bunch of women for his own nefarious purposes! Gideon is one of those heroes who doesn't trust women and predictably the story foreshadows that Gideon will believe that Sara betrays him. While that was predictable there is still a surprise element that left me quite satisfied with the story. Thanks Kristie J for recommending this one to me!
Fun read. Humor & romance. I enjoyed very much
Although I would not suggest this book as suitable for young readers, it does make an entertaining read for adults. Profanity was absent which is a big plus. There are some incidents of sexual encounters, but they do not over weigh the story ling.
The story unfolds slowly at first and builds momentum as it develops.
Okay. Not overly exciting. This had couple sexy parts (those too could have held more intensity). It doesn't read in classic pirate style (tough male tormenting the female mind & body) - but, lets retire & live happily ever after on an unknown island. Com'on!
If I could just find a hero like this one to call my own . . .
This was my first Sabrina Jeffries book. I really enjoyed it. I love the characters, the setting and the ending is wonderful. All in all, a really great read!
I really enjoyed this. I have read other series by Sabrina Jefferies and am looking forward to reading the rest of this one.
This book was better than expected the twist in the end was great.
What a fun wild ride. This was a great fast paced story. Loved all the twist and turns that happen along the way. Intense relationships, great chemistry and keeps you reading till you are done. Have always enjoyed SJ and she doesn't disappoint in this book!
