Samuel Keegan used to man the wheel of the Sea Dog over 200 years ago, but these days he’s the front man of a southern rock band. Rum and women are plentiful, but his world is changing rapidly now that his crew is back together searching for the Holy Grail to break their curse. But the quest leads him to a historian with raven hair and a wicked smile. She holds all the answers, but she could also spell death for them all.
Dr. Charlotte Sinclair works for the Maritime Museum in Savannah, an expert on ancient pirate wrecks. When a government agent requests her help in a top-secret investigation, she discovers not only is the Holy Grail real, but the lead singer of her favorite band is actually the immortal pilot of the Sea Dog crew.
The search for the Grail opens some dark secrets better left hidden, and Charlotte’s life might depend on one Pirate’s Passion…
I’m loving reading this latest series from this highly talented author. Her love of all things piratical and paranormal shine through in this intriguing series, the books in which are standalone but they do have many shared characters and linking events. Over 200 years ago the crew of the Sea Dog discovered a true treasure – the Holy Grail that drinking from which has granted them all prolonged lives, but it has been stolen and its effects are wearing off. Now the pirate crew have other roles and one of them is Samuel Keegan, a singer in a rock band. Agent Bale encourages the pirates to recover it and enlists the help of Dr Charlotte Sinclair from the local Maritime Museum who has a particular interest in the history of pirate activities and wrecks in the area. Samuel is astounded when Agent Bale introduces Charlotte – they had met the previous night at one of his gigs and the chemistry between them was volatile!
This is a fun, exciting read, a great adventure with plenty of intrigue, mystery and romance in an enticing read that had me turning the pages and unwilling to put the story down until I’d finished reading it. Lisa Kessler has produced another enthralling read with well developed characters, a steamy romance and a superb plot, filled with surprises, revelations and mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into it and can’t wait to read more from this very talented author.
I requested and was given a copy of this book without obligation via NetGalley. I chose to read it and this review is my honest opinion of the book after thoroughly enjoying reading it.
Each book in the Sentinels of Savannah series is STANDALONE:
* Magnolia Mystic
* Pirate’s Passion
The crowd roared as Keegan opened his eyes and took a bow with the rest of the band. He introduced all of them, and jogged off-stage. A minute later he returned in his leather frock coat and his guitar in hand. Hooking the strap over his shoulder, he leaned into the mic. “It’s a Scallywag tradition to finish the night with a sea shanty for all the pirates out there.” He put his hand to his ear as everyone—Charlotte included—let out their best pirate “Argh!”
Keegan chuckled with a sexy sparkle in his eyes as he scanned the crowd. Charlotte’s pulse raced when he smiled at her and let his pirate swagger out for all to see. “This one be for all the buccaneers out there. Weigh anchor and hoist the sails, Row Bullies Row!”
He finished the song, and the crowd rewarded him with a standing ovation. She ordered one more drink while the band packed up. It was half gone by the time Keegan slid onto the stool beside her.
He leaned on the bar with a crooked smile. “Enjoy the show?”
“Very much.” She nodded.
He glanced at the stage with a wistful sigh. “Too bad I don’t have a dressing room here.”
“That is too bad.” She laughed, shaking her head. “I had rum and everything.”
“Poor planning on my part, lass.” He glanced at her drink. “Need a ride home?”
She started to say no when her phone buzzed. She took it out of her bag and frowned at the screen. Three missed calls from a number she didn’t recognize. She plugged one ear and clicked on her voicemail.
Dr. Sinclair, it’s Agent Bale. I need to speak with you right away. Call me back, even if it’s late. It’s about the Grail. You could be in danger.
Adrenaline killed her buzz, leaving her jumpy and on edge. She spent most of her time digging into the past, so the biggest danger was missing a step on her way down to the basement admin offices at the maritime museum.
Keegan’s smile faded. “What’s wrong? You’re white as the Sea Dog’s sails.”
“It had black sails.”
He shook his head. “We had both.” He glanced around the bar. “Did someone threaten you?”
“No.” She waited for him to meet her eyes. “Agent Bale left me a voicemail to call right away. He thinks I may be in danger.”
A muscle jumped in Keegan’s cheek as he reached for her hand, leading her out the back exit. The seductive rock star who had been onstage a few minutes before was gone, leaving her alone with…a pirate.
