Publisher's Summary

Can true love die? Or, neglected, does it lie dormant until the object of true desire is again within reach? Denied, does passion smolder, like embers waiting for the right conditions to flare into an all-consuming conflagration?

New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Laurens delivers the thrilling conclusion to the acclaimed Adventurers Quartet series, played out on the high seas and sweltering tropical jungles.

The eldest of the Frobisher brothers, known as the lord of the privateers, Royd expects to execute the final leg of the rescue mission his brothers have been pursuing. What he does not expect is to be pressured into taking with him his emotional nemesis, childhood sweetheart, ex-handfasted bride, and business partner, Isobel Carmichael. But is it Isobel doing the pressuring, or his own restless, unfulfilled psyche?

Isobel, unstoppably resolute and determined, has a mission of her own: find her cousin Katherine and bring her safely home. If she can also rid herself of the dreams of a life with Royd that haunt her, then well and good.

Neither expects the shock that awaits as they set sail aboard Royd's ship, much less the new horizons that open before them in London and in their mission at the mining compound in the jungle.

Yet even with the support of his brothers, their ladies, and rescued ex-captives, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. They must identify and convict the backers behind the illicit enterprise, and thus protect the government from catastrophic destabilization. So they return to the ballrooms of Mayfair to hunt the villains on their home ground.

But having found each other again, having glimpsed the heaven that could be theirs again, how much are they willing to risk in the name of duty?

Very good

An overall good read that is worthy to be on my re read list.
*spoiler alert*
My only dissatisfaction was the fact that H did not make it clear to h that he regretted past liaisons; and amazingly h never asked... I couldn't understand they it was never discussed. That part was just glazed over...

Nevertheless I highly recommend this audible book.

Not too much nor too little

As is predictable with S Laurens, the characters are well rounded with believable substance. They follow the pattern of a great romance but the curves issues are realistic made my heart ache for both sides and to want to knock their heads together too.
I will be listening to the story again, which for me is the best way to know it's excellent listening and therefore money well spent.
Thanks awfully Ms L. You helped an impatient patient lose herself during treatment time in a positive way.

WARNING - book chapters are incorrectly numbered

What would have made Lord of the Privateers better?

If the book chapters had been correctly numbered.<br/><br/>The first 6 audiobook chapters are not in order. If you wish to enjoy the book as it is written listen to it in this sequence of chapters.1, 5, 6, 2, 3, 4, 7. <br/><br/>It is not apparent at first but in chapter 4 I started to get confused over references about travelling to London when the ship was already on its way to Freetown.<br/><br/>I was listening to the book in short bursts so it wasn't until almost the end of chapter 6 that I realised the chapters were out of sequence.<br/><br/>I have only listened up to chapter 7 so far but I believe the rest of the book to be correctly numbered.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Any additional comments?

Hope I haven't put anyone off buying the book as I'm enjoying listening to it now I've sorted out the sequence.

Stephanie is aware of problems with digital book

Would you consider the audio edition of Lord of the Privateers to be better than the print version?

Book brilliant. Digital version currently has been published wrong but Stephanie and the publishers are aware of it. <br/><br/>Listen to chapters 1, 5, 6, 2, 3, 4, 7, etc. <br/><br/>Stephanie said an updated version of the audiobook pushed to all who bought in pre-order/just published when it was ready. <br/><br/>

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lord of the Privateers?

All of it. A lovely way to end the story of the Frobisher men.

What does Steve West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I like to listen to the book when I go to sleep.

Out of order

I've been waiting eagerly for this book but struggled to follow the first 3 or 4 chapters as they hopped backwards and forwards with no coherent story. I've come to the conclusion that I've got a faulty copy.
Once that was out of the way , it was fine. Stephanie Laurens writes well- researched and detailed stories.
