Samuel Keegan used to man the wheel of the Sea Dog over 200 years ago, but these days he’s the front man of a southern rock band. Rum and women are plentiful, but his world is changing rapidly now that his crew is back together, searching for the Holy Grail to break their curse. But the quest leads him to a historian with raven hair and a wicked smile. She holds all the answers, but she could also spell death for them all.
Dr. Charlotte Sinclair works for the Maritime Museum in Savannah, an expert on ancient pirate wrecks. When a government agent requests her help in a top-secret investigation, she discovers not only is the Holy Grail real, but the lead singer of her favorite band is actually the immortal pilot of the Sea Dog crew.
The search for the Grail opens some dark secrets better left hidden, and Charlotte’s life might depend on one Pirate’s Passion...

Romance, intrigue...a great read!
I just loved setting sail on the Sea Dog with Lisa Kessler’s immortal pirates! This fast-paced read had a bit of everything I love – romance, intrigue, a strong and smart heroine, a hero with some serious pirate swagger, and a cast of characters that has you longing to part of the crew.
I was fully invested in this series after the first book, Magnolia Mystic, so I wasn’t surprised to find myself quickly drawn in to the life of Samuel Keegan. He’s met his match in Dr. Charlotte Sinclair, but being immortal makes getting involved with anyone a risky proposition if you want to protect yourself from heartbreak. For Charlotte, Keegan brings out a side of her she doesn’t often let herself show, and once she learns the truth about Keegan she knows she wants to find a way to spend her life with him – and having that life be one that is immortal does all sorts of things to her inner historian! These two were all sorts of fun together and I really enjoyed their playful banter, especially when some pirate humor was thrown in.
The quest for the holy grail, which the Sea Dog crew needs to maintain their immortality, has Keegan and Charlotte right in the middle of things, and both their lives are in danger. New players are introduced, old players can’t be trusted, and, my favorite part, some characters from one of the author’s other series make an appearance, which, in my opinion, has the potential to create some great crossover storylines.
The only thing rougher than the seas for Samuel and Charlotte is the path they have to take to get to their happy ever after. The Sea Dog crew plays an important role in their story, from their need to protect Keegan from heartache, to their acceptance of Charlotte as part of their crew. And learning Charlotte’s background added exactly what this story needed to pull all the parts together.
This is book 2 in the series but can easily be read as a standalone, although there is an overall series arc, so why not go back to book 1 and start from the beginning! Another great book from Lisa Kessler!
