#Review for Pirate’s Persuasion by Lisa Kessler @LdyDisney #Series #BookBlitz



Pirate’s Persuasion
Lisa Kessler
(Sentinels of Savannah #4)
Published by: Entangled: Amara
Publication date: June 22nd 2020
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Immortal pirate Drake Cole has a reputation in Savannah for his custom woodworking and historical restorations, but his work has grown into an obsession. He’s become a stranger to his crew since the Sea Dog sank in 1795. None of them know his painful secret. A young stowaway went down with the ship, one that Drake swore a blood oath to protect.

The ghost of a young boy, lost at sea over two hundred years ago, leads local medium, Heather Storrey right to Drake’s door. He saved her life before, and now she has a chance to return the favor, but how can she protect him from a curse that no one can see?

A dark coven possesses the figurehead from the Flying Dutchman, and if Heather and the immortal Sea Dog crew don’t locate the relic soon, Drake may be lost to them forever. Heather has seen the passionate man behind the veil of guilt, and she’s determined to free him from his self-imposed prison, and persuade this pirate to love again.

My Review:

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!

Drake Cole is an accomplished carpenter, mind you he’s had more than two centuries to hone his skills. He is shocked when Heather Storrey tells him a ghost has claimed to be his nephew and asked her to warn him he’s in danger. As that danger materialises, he has dire memories to face, love to discover and secrets to reveal – and so does Heather!

This is another engaging read that I really didn’t want to put down till I’d finished it. Lisa Kessler brings her characters vividly to life and it really feels like you are present, witnessing the events unfold in your imagination as the story progresses. The dilemmas they face, decisions they make, family secrets they find, all have key roles to play in this fantastic paranormal romantic suspense. I really can’t recommend it highly enough and can’t wait to discover just who will be the next immortal pirate to find love and read more in this fascinating, fantasy, action packed series!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after thoroughly enjoying reading it!

EXCERPT:

No trace of judgment lingered in her gaze. He lifted his free hand, aching for reassurance that this wasn’t a dream. His fingers slid through her silky hair as he tucked it behind her ear. Words were too insignificant for this moment, or this woman. He met her eyes and whispered, “I should go.”

She tilted her head slightly, her gaze steady. “Why?”

He swallowed the lump in his throat. “Because…if I stay…I may kiss you.”

She didn’t recoil at his confession. Instead, color flushed her pale skin, enticing him closer as he searched her face.

“Don’t go,” she whispered.

He lost his tenuous grip on self-control and leaned in closer, kissing her with an unfamiliar tenderness. His battered heart had been on display for her, his secrets exposed, and instead of rejecting him, she offered acceptance, a safe harbor in the storm of painful memories he’d shouldered alone for centuries.

Her hand moved up his chest and around his neck. He tilted his head as her lips parted, opening and welcoming his exploration. She tasted like raindrops and moonlight, delicious and refreshing. He might never get enough. Her fingers tangled in the back of his hair, the pull drawing a long-dormant passion from his soul. He wrapped her in his arms, their tongues tangling in a hungry desperation for closeness.

He yearned for her, to claim her, to know every inch of her.
