About the Author
At the tender age of twelve, Sabrina Jeffries decided she wanted to be a romance writer. It took her eighteen more years and a boring stint in graduate school before she sold her first book, but now her sexy and humorous historical romances routinely land on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists and have won several awards. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son, where she writes full-time and is working on her next novel.

However no-one expects the ship to be boarded by pirates and the women to be kidnapped. Captain Gideon Horne, known as the Pirate Lord, has a hatred of the English aristocracy and has plundered many ships belonging to nobles. However he and his pirate crew want to settle down on the island paradise they have found - but not without women. When they discover the convict ship full of women it is too good an opportunity to miss!
But Gideon hasn't reckoned with Sara Willis and her care for the women. Sara and Gideon are locked into a battle of wills as she tries to protect the women and he tries to encourage them to live the utopian life on his island, Atlantis. But Gideon and Sara might be getting more than they bargained for when they spend so much time together - can Gideon's distrust of the aristocracy and the wounds of childhood be overcome? Can Sara find happiness so far from her life in England?
This was an enjoyable story if rather far-fetched (I can't imagine any brother would have allowed his sister to be a passenger on a convict ship, for example). The characters were interesting although many seemed rather stereotypical, but the central love story worked quite well and the verbal sparring between Sara and Gideon was well written.Read more ›
Far fetched storyline - yes, indeed. Along the way to New South Wales, they come across The Pirate Lord and his crew who are "retiring" after years of privateering and then pirating the high seas. They have a paradise they're retiring to which they call "Atlantis." All they require are wives. When they come across the ship load of convict women, they decide to do the ladies and themselves a huge favor and kidnap them.
Oh boy, oh boy - fun ensues. When Gideon Horn, The Pirate Lord, runs into Sara, he considers leaving her behind but changes his mind when he realizes she's the stepsister of an earl. He can't stand aristocrats and has made it his life's work to cause them as much trouble on the high seas as he possibly can. He has his own reasons which have to do with his origins, but the reader doesn't learn that part of the story until a ways into the book.
Sara is hilarious as she matches her stiff rumped persona against Gideon. Funny stuff going on in this book. Gideon soon realizes he didn't count all the costs of gathering so many women together at one time, while trying to match them up with their "husbands" even as Sara challenges him on every single front. Very shortly, she's like clay in his hands and vice versa. Sabrina Jeffries can write some stories. I loved Gideon and in the end, he gets everything he's always wanted, even though it's a bit overdue.
