Romantic Immortal pirates living and working in Savannah, Georgia. Need I say more? I ddn’t think so!
When Lisa Kessler asked me if I would be interested in reading her new book, I jumped at the chance. Her Moon series about a group of wolf and panther shifters is a favorite of mine and I was sorry to see it end.
Skye Olson is a psychic in Savannah living and working in a building that has been owned by her family for generations. When she visits an old time reproduction of a pirate ship in Savannah’s harbor, she meets Colton Hayes. It will prove to be an auspicious meeting for both, although neither thinks so at first. Colton’s been waiting for a woman with violet eyes to enter his life for an extremely long time. Told by a seer that it would change his life, but to expect it at some point, he is thrown to finally meet her. The fact that both of them are attracted to each other is beside the point or maybe not?
This was a short novella at only one hundred pages, but still managed to capture my imagination and keep me reading. I enjoyed the characters, the romance, the seer’s warning, and the side story of someone trying to get Skye to sell her building-which she isn’t about to do. Was it an almost love at first sight story? It wasn’t exactly that, but close enough-especially since it’s such a short story. As far as the reason for the immortality, I’m not even going there.
Novellas aren’t always a favorite by readers because they usually don’t add that much to the series, unless it’s from a much beloved series. In this case, this novella sets up a new series in Kessler’s installment in the Sentinels of Savannah series. I say Kessler’s because I believe other authors will be writing different books in the series. At this point I’m not sure if they will all be novellas or not.
I enjoyed this novella and fully plan on reading more of this series. The reader was introduced to several more immortal pirates and one in particular has me wanting to read his story. Recommended to adult paranormal romance readers. Good read for a lazy afternoon.
