This is book 3 of the Sentinels of Savannah series and I would absolutely read the books before it so you understand everything that is happening in this book. This one is about John Smyth and Harmony Andrews. John has been in charge of his crew's money for more time than he can remember. And when he and his crew are tasked with finding and recovering Pandora's Box, he thinks to leave Harmony in charge of his company. Never realizing that she was the one who took the box to begin with in order to auction it and donate the money. Now they are thrown together and must not only return the box but work through what they may mean to each other. I absolutely loved this installment! John has lived a long time and is definitely set in his ways. But Harmony smashes his habits to pieces and makes him feel alive again. But with him being immortal and her being mortal, they have a lot that must be worked out. I loved every minute of this book! From the main characters growing and realizing that they truly need each other to the agent finally becoming more human and down to earth to me. Now I really need to have a story for the captain because he has me beyond curious!! Loved it!

John and Harmony are our protagonists in this latest book in the Sentinels of Savannah series. Each book has different protagonists featuring one of the Sea Dog’s crew. This time, Pandora’s Box is out in the open having been stolen from Department 13 and evil might be unleashed to the world. John’s employee Harmony knows more, and he needs to find out what’s going on. But how can he when she is making him feel more than he has for a long, long time. Loved this light romance book with a mystery undertone. I have loved every book in the series so far, and I can’t wait to read more. There’s fun, romance, mystery and suspense that keeps me glued to the page. As an aside, I’m really intrigued by David and Department 13 in this book. They both have lots of potential, and I really hope we get to see more of David, his past and the department he works in. Hint, hint! I highly recommend this book! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

Pirate's Pleasure explores love of money, power, family and the one person who makes you feel alive. Immortal pirate John Smyth has experienced them all but the last. Now he has found a woman right under his nose that has him feeling alive and adventurous again. But he has secrets and so does she. Their story is rollicking fun and as close to adventure on the high seas as a body can get.

Another wonderful pirate book by this author. A great adventure surrounding Pandora's box. With the box calling out to be opened and trying to keep the Serpent Society from getting their hands on it makes this a pulse pounding tale. Harmony and John work great together, but John is worried about putting his heart on the line for his little thief. Enjoy matey's. I received a complimentary copy and I am voluntarily reviewing.

John Smyth is an immortal pirate along with the rest of the crew of the Sea Dog. He has survived many disasters and hundreds of years living with his secrets. He and the rest of the crew do certain jobs for a paranormal branch of the government. This time, they want Pandora's Box found. Harmony works for John as an investment broker, making money for the clients. He is grooming her to be a stand in CEO for his company when he is gone. By night, she is a member of a gang of thieves who steal artifacts and sell them on the dark web to help people who are in desperate need for money. What John doesn't know is that Harmony has already stolen it. Now what? This puts her in danger from many people, especially the Serpent Society. Will John be able to trust Harmony? Will the crew get Pandora's Box before all hell breaks loose. I have really enjoyed this series. Can't wait for the rest. I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for a honest review. I read this book voluntarily.

Your secret has to be kept safe. John Smyth might be a very rich handsome man but he will never know true happiness. He has lived so much longer than any normal human being after drinking from the holy grail. Yes, it gave him & his men immortality but that comes with a price. He needs someone that he can trust and his broker Harmony seems to fit the bill but she is just too reckless at times. He hopes that she will be able to look after his company while he is away but everything changes when he is shown a picture. He doesn't know what Harmony is up to but it isn't good. Harmony knows that she can find a buyer for the relic it is just a box with greek writing on it and she hasn't been able to open it. She needs the money towards treatment and other equipment that could save two people's lives. But Harmony has stolen Pandora's box and now the government wants it back and John knows that things can go terribly wrong. He wants to protect Harmony as he has really fallen for her but she could be his downfall. Can he trust her with everything? Harmony believes what John tells her but she still needs to go through with the deal it is a lot of money but will things go the way that she plans? Will Harmony take what John is offering or will she walk away? Will good triumph over evil or will the box win the day? A good read really enjoyed it. Who doesn't love sexy pirates that save the day? I was lucky enough to receive a copy via Netgalley & the publishing house in exchange for my honest review.

It’s back aboard the Sea Dog for boatswain John Smyth’s romance with his employee and thief-with-a-heart, Harmony who has something the crew are on the hunt for. “You believe in the myth of Pandora’s box?” Following the series theme so far of immortal pirate falling for human and the potential heartbreak that scenario will bring in the future, there’s plenty of push/pull as John and Harmony give into their feelings and, as the title suggests, there’s much pleasure to be had. “The siren in his arms was luring him into a stormy sea, away from the safe harbor he’d created to face eternity.” In terms of the overall story, this one took some time to get going with not a huge amount actually happening in the first half. But I do love how Lisa Kessler is centralising the romance around well known myths and with the passion and action all playing out in the second half, Pirate’s Pleasure is another enjoyable enough addition to the series.

I received a complimentary advance copy of this book to give a voluntary honest review. This review contains only my own thoughts and opinions of this book. Pirate’s Pleasure sure was something else. It had quite an unusual storyline with the different magical artifacts, cults, crews and the whole Robin Hood and Pirates twist binding it all together. The plot was original to say the least, especially since I don’t think anyone has ever even thought of pairing Robin Hood together with pirates and making it into a love story. As much as I’m impressed over the plot’s uniqueness, sadly the the execution was not up to par. It wasn’t that it was anything wrong with the story or writing. Standard-wise it was as it should be and the high quality was there. However it still felt like something was missing. I couldn’t really connect with any of the main characters and I didn’t feel that spark or chemistry between John and Harmony either. That made it especially difficult for me to fully care about them or the story in general and I often found my mind elsewhere when I read. It’s a real mood killer having to reread pages just because your mind has wandered of. I think the real issue as to why I had difficulty connecting to book and the characters were the lack of complex and realistic personality. While Harmony was described as a risk taker with spunk and John a reserved and businesslike man with an inner hidden pirate, it didn’t fully bleed through to the pages. Yes, they both were all those things and yes, they both had realistic flaws such as difficulty to trust and depend on others. All of that were there but at the same time not. I found things that contradicted this as well, for example Harmony trusting John, who she then barely knew with her secret agenda and criminal life and getting him involved. This also made her seem a bit TSTL since she time and time again trusted him with her plan and her safety and not once considering that the man she knew very little about could turn on her. I never felt like I could relate to the characters because these descriptions didn’t actually help form the personalities. They were just adjectives and objectives they followed sometimes and then sometimes not, if that makes any sense. The rest of the characters were names I stumbled upon that sometimes had a voice. There wasn’t much else to them. It took a long time for me to finally find interest in the story and that was when the romance actually started to get places and add some drama and emotional struggle into the mix. At that point I was already over halfway done with the book. Not a good start, but I will give Pirate’s Pleasure three stars for the one of a kind plot and the later stages of the romance. There was potential, just not enough for me
