I loved The Pirate Lord so much. I've gotten into a bit of a Pirate/Deserted Island Binge and was not disappointed with my choice of adding this to my haul. The characters were wonderful, the descriptions were vivid, and the story line was consistently interesting. Sara Willis is a reformer in a time when a woman who committed even the pettiest of crimes was shipped off to the new colony in Australia virtually as a prostitute. She is also the step-sister of the Earl of Blackmore. Sara arranges to be on one of the ships that is taking a group of women prisoners to New South Wales so she can report on the terrible conditions and abuse of the women. (She is pulling a Nellie Bly) The terrifying Pirate Lord Captain Gideon Horn and his men are settling down and are on the hunt for wives when the women's ship pulls in the port where they are. Gideon sees the women as an easy solution to the wives problem seeing as there is a ship full of them for the taking. Sara and Gideon are all sparks and passion even as they fight each other along the way. Never a dull moment and a read you won't want to miss! ( )

Scary & blood-thirsty Pirate lord is no longer so tough when he encounters Miss Sara Willis. It 's entertaining to read how he is trying to please & woo her. I was disappointed that writer had to make him a real lord in the end - that's why I lowered my rating from 3 to 2 stars... ( )

One of the best pirate love stories ever! ( )
  susanbevans | Jan 15, 2010 |
A pirate captain with a crew of pirates looking to give up their wayward life and settle down; a ship of female convicts bound for Australia and shepherded by a crusading English lady; a not-so-bright idea by said pirate captain of capturing the female convicts and providing brides for his crew - all together a recipe for disaster. Or so some would think.

I enjoyed this story for its escapism mostly. I didn't find it overly romantic in spite of the fact that said Captain Horn spent a lot of his time shirtless. It seemed strange to me that any pirate, even one trying to woo a female convict, would put aside his gruff ways and court said female convict(s). The heroine, Miss Sara Willis, was a bit too demanding for my tastes. She seemed to keep wanting more and more concessions before she would acquiese to the Captain.

A nice change of pace, though, from the usual swashbuckler or Regency period romance. ( )

Book description
Gideon Horn, ein verwegener Piratenlord, möchte mit seiner Mannschaft auf einer Insel in der Südsee die zahlreichen Beutezüge genießen. Um den Aufenthalt noch angenehmer zu gestalten, fehlen den wilden Männern nur noch schöne Frauen. Da kommt ihnen ein Schiff, vollbeladen mit Frauen, die nach Australien deportiert werden sollen, gerade recht. Vor diesem Schicksal möchte der stolze Kapitän die Frauen selbstverständlich bewahren. Doch das Schiff der Frauen wird von der selbstbewussten Adeligen Sara Willis begleitet. Mit solch charmantem Widerstand hätte der Pirat beileibe nicht gerechnet...

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 . . .

Lord, he's so clever!

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. . .
