TLC Book Tours: Lord of the Privateers by Stephanie Laurens
|Lord of the Privateers|
The Adventurer's Quartet, Volume 4
Revel in the action, drama, intrigue and passion as the Frobishers— with help from Wolverstone, the Cynsters and many familiar others— steer the adventure to a glorious end.
Widely known as the lord of the privateers, Royd Frobisher expects to execute the final stage of the rescue mission his brothers have begun. What he does not expect is to be pressured into taking Isobel Carmichael—his childhood sweetheart, former handfasted bride and current business partner—with him. A force of nature, Isobel has a mission of her own: to find and bring a young cousin safely home. And along the way, she hopes to rid herself of the dreams of a life with Royd that still haunt her.
Neither expects the shock that awaits them as they set sail, much less the new horizons that open before them as they embark on a full-scale rescue-assault on the compound deep in the jungle. Yet despite the support of his brothers and their ladies, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. To identify and convict the conspirators behind the illicit enterprise—and save England from political disaster—they must return to the ballrooms of the haut ton and hunt the villains on their home ground.
But having found each other again, having glimpsed the heaven that could yet be theirs, how much are Royd and Isobel willing to risk in the name of duty?

Lord of the Privateers is an adventure saga set on the dangerous high seas as well as fine English parlors. The tempestuous romance between Isobel Carmichael and Royd Frobisher is as changeable as the tide and as powerful. After a failed hand-fast marriage when they were younger, both Isobel and Royd are determined that their future will not include more heartbreak.
This book is certainly an adventure. From the prologue to the very last line, Isobel and Royd's somewhat unconventional tale is quite a ride! I'll admit, I was somewhat unsure of how I would like the book just because there are so many characters to keep track of! When there's a list of characters at the front of a book, I mentally prepare myself for the task of keeping each character straight in my head. Thankfully, the Isobel and Royd remain front and center, and the secondary characters weren't too much of a distraction! Having read the previous books in the series, I was a little more prepared for this story!
If you love passionate romance or shipboard stories, give this, the last story in the Adventurers Quartet, a read. This isn't your typical regency romance! It's my favorite of the series by far!
