Review - Pirate's Promise by Lisa Kessler

Pirate's Promise
by Lisa Kessler
Series: Sentinels Of Savannah, #5
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Entangled: Amara
Release Date: July 26, 2021

Greyson Till never found a weapon he didn’t like. As the immortal Master Gunner of a pirate ship, he’s grown his collection for over two hundred years. So when a legendary cursed blade that can cut through any material goes missing from the government’s paranormal artifact vault, he’s eager to retrieve it. Working with the secret division Department 13 has always come with its set of challenges, but this one is the worst yet.

Along with the mission comes fiery, no-nonsense paranormal weapons expert Aura Henderson, who couldn’t be less thrilled about this pairing. The last time they saw each other, Greyson accidentally blew her cover, almost killing them both. Worst of all, to get the sword, she has to pose as Greyson’s wife. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a sexy grumbly pirate, whether in reality or just pretend.

But when they locate the relic, the gilded blade thirsts for blood and things aren’t what they seem. Greyson isn’t sure who to trust anymore, and he’s not about to let death come between them…

Another action filled adventure for the immortal pirate crew!
“An evil, hungry sword. This was going to be…interesting.”
Greyson and Aura were perfectly matched - from their hard heads to the very hard layer of protection that surrounded their soft hearts, and of course their love of all things weaponry! There was the usual emotion and chemistry between these two, but both Greyson and Aura were so protective of their hearts I wasn’t sure they were ever going to let their guards down enough to find their happy ever after! These two had me laughing with their banter, frustrated with their inability to communicate, and so caught up in their backstories that I couldn’t help but keep rooting for them to work through their issues (I’m really looking at you Aura!) and tell each other how they felt!
“Backstory?” He raised a teasing brow. “Being a pirate isn’t story enough for you, lass?”
I jut love this crew of immortal pirates and their ever expanding family - even Captain Flynn is starting to grow on me. I loved that this story took place on the Sea Dog and we got to experience more of the ship, including One-Eyed Bob in the galley as he not only feeds the crew but plays matchmaker and offers all sorts of advice, and even getting to spend time with the ladies, Char and Harmony.
“Love doesn’t’ make things easy. It makes them worthwhile. Big difference.”
I love Lisa Kessler’s writing and am always amazed at the emotion she is able to put on each page. Her characters are always colorful but believable and her writing makes the reading effortless. This is part of a series but can easily be read as a standalone. 

Once again, Lisa Kessler has delivered another wonderful story that has me awaiting the next book!

I received an advance reader copy from the publisher via NetGalley which I voluntarily reviewed.
