Overview

Savage of the Sea (Pirates of Britannia: Lords of the Sea) by Eliza Knight

First book in the new Pirates of Britannia: Lords of the Sea series!

A daring brotherhood, where honor among thieves reigns supreme, and crushing their enemies is a thrilling pasttime. These are the Pirates of Britannia.

When Highland pirate prince, Shaw “Savage” MacDougall was invited to a deadly feast, he didn’t know that saving a wee lass would forever change his future.

Lady Jane Lindsey, widowed at a young age, seeks refuge from her departed husband’s vengeful enemies. For five years, she’s held a secret that could cost her everything, including her life. When her safety is compromised, she reaches out to the only man who’s protected her in the past, and offers him a bounty he cannot refuse.

Shaw’s life is perfect. Whisky, women and mayhem. He wants for nothing—until Lady Jane presents a treasure he’d never considered possessing. Is he willing to risk his lethal reputation in order to save a lass he barely knows, again? Will she trust a pirate to see their arrangement through to the end? And what happens when perilous battles turn to sinful kisses? Who will save them from each other?

NOTE: This is Book One in the Lords of the Sea pirate series, written by Eliza Knight and Kathryn Le Veque. Kathryn Le Veque's novel, LEADER OF TITANS, is Book Two in this series. Book Three is THE SEA DEVIL by Eliza Knight. All books are stand-alones but much more fun if read together!

Grab your daggers and crossbows. You're going pirating! Who doesn’t like pirates and battles on the sea? I know I certainly do.  Author Knight uses her imagination and creative juices to create a likeable bad guy, one of the most ruthless pirates, who can’t seem to help/deny himself loving one wee lass whom he saved from certain death when she was only 16.  Not only does he save her then, but saves her on other occasions. Lady Jane is wary, for all of that. The rules of courtship for a pirate aren’t as Lady Jane expects, but this wily, handsome and yes, honorable pirate, is the one who has gotten under her skin (damn him anyway!).  Lady Jane is a widow, made so by the death of her young husband, William.  Livingstone, a noble, has Shaw do his dirty work. Shaw MacDougall, Prince of the Devils of the Deep, also known as Savage, wants his coffers full and is used to dirty work. He’s ready to collect his gold, but doesn’t know what he would be doing.  Livingstone tells Shaw to follow William’s wife, who’d been taken to a room in the tower, and get rid of her.  Doing as told, he finds her fighting off a man intent on raping and no doubt killing.  Now, there is one thing Shaw cannot tolerate.  It is abuse of women. He saves the lass, taking her to an abbey where her aunt lives and for six years all is quiet.  She knows not if Livingston thinks her dead. Word comes to the abbey, Livingstone’s making a tour in the country and will be coming to the abbey soon. That’s when things heat up. Lady Jane had been keeping in touch with Shaw a couple of times a year, but less more recently.  Shaw has his castle on Scarba, an island he owns. She sends him a message through an old fisherman that she is in danger.  Shaw comes immediately taking her on board his ship. Shaw wants Lady Jane, however, he never forces a woman.  When he saved her six years past, she was but a girl. Now she is a luscious curvaceous beautiful woman. He wants to save her, for in his heart he’s always held a candle to her, his head hasn’t caught up.  Lady Jane won’t travel with Shaw unless he marries her, yet she’s in desperate need to escape the abbey.  The scene of negotiation is artfully crafted and one of the more humorous scenes. The kiss, sealing the agreement, has Lady Jane’s attention.  She’d never been kissed so by her husband.  But what it does to Shaw! Nothing is easy on the sea. If nature doesn’t have you fighting for your life, another pirate ship with its own agenda can easily do you in.  Between just keeping alive and the tumultuous feelings Shaw and Lady Jane have for each other, make this story humorous, yet evoking apprehension for the danger Lady Jane is in.  Does she move from the frying pan to the fire?  Shaw MacDougall, Prince of the Devils of the Deep, for all is ruthlessness is quite a wonder. His men adore him.  Adoration comes with fairness and respect, so we get much the measure of the man through his interaction with his men. I enjoyed the brotherhood Shaw had with Constantine Le Breque, whose stronghold is in Cornwall. He is the leader of the English pirates, another a gang of pirates, only English, equally as strong and savvy as Shaw and his Highlanders. Who would have thought Scotland and England could have actually worked together during those times?  I guess pirates are pretty smart!  Prepare yourself for this excitement-filled series.  Kathryn Le Veque releases Leader of Titans end of November.

I enjoyed this book SO much. It combined two of my favorite historical romance combos together: Pirates AND Highland hotties. This story was a fun and satisfying way to start off this new series. Eliza Knight always brings a captivating story with interesting and lifelike characters. I so hope that the next story in this series is about le Brecque! *I received a complimentary ARC of this story in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

Savage of the Sea by Eliza Knight Pirates of Britannia #1 Historical romance with pirates – how could I resist the opportunity to read and review a book such as this AND try out a new author in the process? Well, I couldn’t :) And… What a wonderful book this proved to be! I am now eager to read the rest of this series and any other books I can find by this author! The book, based on the myth of how the Pirates of Britannia began, tells the story of Shaw “Savage” MacDougall and Lady Jane Lindsey. Savage was in the wrong place at the right time to save Jane and take her to the safe haven she requested to go to. Five years later she is in need of his help again and as neither seems to have forgotten the other and he is a pirate and she is offering a “treasure” – well – he is off to save her again. With a hand fasting, the gathering of his men and ships, the addition of English pirates to assist in his quest the group is off to England to secure the promised treasure. Two bands of wicked conscienceless pirates from Spain and France are encountered along the way and so is the evil man who started the problems for Jane in the first place. Most, if not all, of the wicked men are dealt with before a HEA can be found for Savage and Jane. This swashbuckling tale of derring-do on both land and the high seas left me eager to find out what will happen in future books of the series. I mean, there are at least three hotties that captain Savage’s ships in the Britannia group and then there is Constantine who is a blond godlike being who leads the English pirates so…there are plenty of stories to look forward to as one after the other of these men’s’ stories are shared. Thank you to Barclay Publicity for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

SAVAGE OF THE SEA by Eliza Knight is the First book in the Pirates of Britannia: Lords of the Sea. This is the story of Shaw “Savage” MacDougall and Lady Jane Lindsey. Shaw had a rocky start but he has made a name for himself as a pirate but he does have honor. That is proven when he saves a young Jane for certain rape and death. Shaw takes her to the Abbey to be safe. Neither forgot the other and now Jane finds that she needs him again. Shaw again steps in to help her but this time it leads to more excitement, trouble and some great love scene. Love their story and this author's writing.
