The Pirate Lord, By Sabrina Jeffries
Grade: B

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 an uncharted island paradise. And the women will surely be grateful for rescue 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 a week. 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…

Lady Sara is a helper. She lives a life of privilege and wants to give back to the world, so she boards a ship transporting convect women and plans to teach them.

Gideon is a pirate who had discovered a Utopian private island, and has decided that he wants to retire from a life of crime and settle down with a wife. In order to find a wife for him and his crew he kidnaps Sara and the other women and then settles them all on his island.

I really liked Sara. She was strong, true to herself and even though she stood up against Gideon, she still showed some fear and anger that a kidnapped woman would have.

The author has a neat website. Lots of info about her books can be found. This is something from the inside scoop section she has about this book.

How to Survive but Remain a Lady on a Pirate-Infested Island
by Miss Sara Willis

1)Either learn to enjoy tough roast pig or offer to prepare more savory pork.
2)Make your wishes known as forcefully as need be to ensure that you keep your honor, and do not be put off by sweet-talking males with ulterior motives.
3)Hold on to your hair pins, if possible. Should you lose them, however, do not flaunt your unbound hair. It can draw unwanted attention from certain quarters.
4)Refuse to engage in any unladylike pursuits, no matter how attractive the asker. I cannot stress this enough, as pirates can be extremely persuasive and devious in courting eligible young women.
5)Do not stare when confronted with scandalous sights, such as that of a virile man at his bath in a stream.
6)Avoid black mamba snakes.

Be sure to check out her website. I don't like the cover for this book, but she has interesting information about it.
