9780778330561: Lord of the Privateers (Adventurers Quartet)

#1 New York Times bestselling author STEPHANIE LAURENS delivers the thrilling conclusion to her acclaimed series THE ADVENTURERS QUARTET, a passionate Regency-era drama where intrigue and danger play out on the high seas and in exotic tropical jungles, ultimately reaching a dazzling climax in the glittering ballrooms of London.

Unstoppable determination 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.

Unfinished business 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.

Unforgettable love 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?

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.

Review:

"Laurens' Adventurers Quartet delivers all the fast-paced action, dangerous intrigue, vividly etched characters, and sexy romance her fans have come to expect."-Booklist

"Laurens successfully brings her Adventurers Quartet to a resounding conclusion. The broad literary canvas, swashbuckling adventures, dangerous intrigue, and steamy romance of these novels are rare treats for readers who miss those old-school historical romances by Shirlee Busbee and Katherine Woodiwiss."-Booklist on Lord of the Privateers

"Filled with beloved characters, exciting escapades and sweeping landscapes, the conclusion to Laurens' Adventurers Quartet is just what her fans want. Lord of the Privateers is the last piece of the puzzle that fans have been excitedly piecing together. Significant characters from the series are brought back one last time for a wholly satisfying read." -RT Book Reviews

"Laurens's rich characterization and well-thought-out plot make for a captivating adventure romance and provide elements of danger and surprise throughout the story. The vivid narrative, combined with quick cuts from scene to scene, make for an engrossing read with an ending poised to continue the adventure with yet another Frobisher brother." –Publisher's Weekly, starred review, on The Daredevil Snared

"Laurens deftly balances action with dialogue and description, creating an intriguing and suspenseful novel that is equally effective whether read as a sequel or on its own." -Publisher's Weekly, starred review, on A Buccaneer at Heart

"Laurens launches her new Adventurers Quartet on a high note, with a fast-paced tale that is jam-packed with dangerous intrigue and red-hot passion.... Readers looking for something a little bit different than the usual Regency historical will be delighted with the exotic African setting of the book as well as its swashbuckling plot."--Booklist on The Lady's Command

"Stephanie Laurens plays into readers' fantasies like a master and claims their hearts time and again."
-RT Book Reviews

"Stephanie Laurens never fails to entertain and charm her readers with vibrant plots, snappy dialogue and unforgettable characters."
-Historical Romance Reviews

"When it comes to dishing up lusciously sensual, relentlessly readable historical romances, Laurens is unrivalled."
-Booklist

"Laurens's writing shines."
