Magnolia Mystic - Lisa Kessler

Book one in the new series focuses on the quartermaster, Colton, and a psychic named Skye. It was fast, novella length, but still enjoyable.  He did propose rather quickly but it was still a sweet start to a new series and one I will read more of. The plot concept is good and book one sets up the conflict that they need to find out whole stole the Grail and retrieve it before it can be used for nefarious reasons. I look forward to reading more in this series.

Great Story and Characters
Pirate's Passion - Lisa Kessler

Samuel Keegan was part of the pirate crew of the Sea Dog over 200 years ago. He was the one who commanded the wheel. Now he’s the lead singer of a band, living a pretty successful life. When he first sees Char, he has no idea that his care-free life is about to change. Charlotte is a historian and total pirate buff. When she decides to let her hair down one night and see her favorite Southern Rock band, she has no idea how much her life is about to change when she meets Keegan, the lead singer of the band.

This is the second book of this series. I read the first one a while ago but getting to see those characters in this book was a nice refresher. This book was packed with action and an ongoing story that started in the first book that works to keep the hero and heroine together against their own objections. Like the first book, this was quick that keeps you reading until the end. I can’t wait for the next book of the series. I highly recommend.

Review: Pirate’s Passion by Lisa Kessler
Pirate's Passion - Lisa Kessler

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

An immortal pirate turned rock star, a brilliant historian with a hunger for adventure, a quest for the Holy Grail… How could Pirate’s Passion not be fun? It’s Pirates of the Caribbean meets Indiana Jones with a healthy dose of romance and secret government agencies thrown in.

Samuel Keegan is a charming rogue who enjoys his immortality and an ever-changing stream of women in his bed. The threat of losing his immortality is only dimmed by the panic he feels at risking losing his heart to Dr. Charlotte Sinclair. Keegan has lost a woman he loved once, and he feels no desire to drown in that despair again. Only he can’t seem to help himself from falling for Char. She’s an expert on pirates and knows all about the crew of the Sea Dog who supposedly died over two hundred years ago. Keegan and Char click immediately and I loved their chemistry. How things work out when one is immortal and the other not, I won’t say. But I did enjoy the ride author Lisa Kessler took these two on. Keegan is the perfect fantasy of a pirate turned rock star. He’s a gentleman and a scoundrel, and who can resist that? Not me, and definitely not Char. She’s his match in every way and their romance was sexy one moment, fun the next, and melted my heart the moment after that.

Pirate’s Passion is the second book in the Sentinels of Savannah series but you don’t have to have read Magnolia Mystic to follow along. The ongoing search for the Holy Grail – the cup that gave the Sea Dog pirates their immortality – continues in this story and we also delve further into the world of the mysterious government agency, Department 13. The quest for the cup was exciting and I was completely invested in this storyline. The rest of the world building was where the story hit a bit of a snag for me. It wasn’t quite as exciting, perhaps because it’s explored from the viewpoint of the somewhat bland Agent Bale. There was also a case of a lot being thrown in to spur further stories, which did set up some interesting prospects for future books but also had the side effect of leaving the villains in this one somewhat underdeveloped. Still, I enjoyed Pirate’s Passion overall. Ms. Kessler knows how to deliver sexy pirates heroes and adventurous, interesting heroines. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next in the Sentinels of Savannah series.

Moonlight - Lisa Kessler

Book one in the Moon series was an enjoyable, passionate story about a woman who doesn't realize that she is a shifter and a man who knows he can't love a leopard shifter but can't stay away and can't stop loving her.  Their adventure of finding out who is after her, who are the bad guys and allies, and how can they live together without losing everything.  I enjoyed their story and will definitely check out more in the series.  This series has been out quite a while and it has been on my TRL for just as long. I am glad I finally sat down to read book one, it is great at the passion, it is great with the emotional tension, it has a strong plot and conflicts, and all together made for an enjoyable story.

Blog Tour & Review! Magnolia Mystic (Sentinels of Savannah #1) Lisa Kessler!
Magnolia Mystic - Lisa Kessler

 

 

 

Skye Olson is a psychic like her mother, and her grandmother before her, but a bad break up with the man she thought was her soulmate has left her confidence in her abilities shaken. While she's in crisis, a real estate tycoon from Atlanta swoops in with his eyes on her shop.

 

Colton Hayes spent his mortal life plundering royal ships with his pirate crew, but one holy relic changed everything. Now he and the rest of the crew protect the port of Savannah from their captain who traded his cutlass for a fountain pen.

When Colton discovers the captain wants to build a hotel in the heart of historic Savannah, he sets out to stop him, but nothing could prepare him for the sexy smile and violet eyes of the Magnolia Mystic.

 

 

Due to a bad breakup, psychic Skye Olson’s confidence has been shaken. Once a pirate, Colton Hayes is now a protector of the port of Savannah but he is not prepared for the sexy smile and violet eyes of the Magnolia Mystic.

 

This romance is sweet and adventurous as Skye and Colton work through not only their emotional issues, but secrets that change Skye’s reality and a captain intent on Skye’s shop. The story is short and fast paced with lots of intrigue, sizzling chemistry and swashbuckling fun with a few surprising twists just to keep readers on their toes.

 

Lisa Kessler has taken what would usually be in a historical romance, sexy pirates, (oh my!), and put them in a clever paranormal romance with a few twists. The concept is fascinating and the characters are strong and charming, and I really wish this story had been a bit longer because it was quite a delightful introduction to the Sentinels of Savannah series and I am looking forward to reading Pirate’s Passion which releases in October.

“Tour’s up on the bow.” A tall shadow fell over her.

She didn’t take her eyes off the river. “I know, thanks.”

His boots thumped on the deck behind her. “I wasn’t givin’ directions.”

She sighed and glanced over her shoulder. Her gaze traveled up his body, way up, to focus on his dark eyes. “I just need a minute.”

He shook his head, crossing his tan muscled arms over his broad chest. “Plenty of minutes are available with the tour. This area’s off-limits.”

He was just doing his job, but her tolerance for men was at an all-time low at the moment. “I’m not going to touch anything.”

His eyes moved to her feet and back to her face. “Seems you already are.”

Heat burned in her cheeks. “What is it with you men thinking you can just make a law and judge us when we question it?” She jammed the ring in the pocket of her jeans. “I’m sick of your shit. So if you want me to move, you’ll have to do it yourself.”

He raised a brow. “You finished?”

His calm only fueled the tempest inside her. “No, actually, I don’t think I am.” She matched his posture: chest out, arms crossed. “My family’s been in Savannah since it was settled. I know the pirate stories, and I didn’t buy a ticket for a tour and ‘swearing in’ ceremony under the pirate mast. Forgive me for wanting a few minutes peace with the Savannah River.”

He pointed to a sign.

Area is for Crew Only

A spark lit in his eyes. “If you’d been sworn in, you might be able to sway me to let you stay.”

She blew out a frustrated breath, her hands falling to her sides. “Look, I just wanted to toss my engagement ring into the river without getting arrested for littering. I figured no one would see me from up here.”

He relaxed his stance a little. “Must be an idiot to allow a fiery lass like you to get away.”

“Please don’t get flirty.” She rolled her eyes. “I’m not in the mood.”

A hint of a smile curved his lips. “Wasn’t flirtin’, just stating a fact.” He glanced over his shoulder. “Speaking of facts, you should pawn the ring. Feedin’ gold to the fish won’t cure heartache.”
