John Smyth has survived mutinous pirate crews, wars, and the passage of centuries by keeping his life as he did his ships, organized and well stocked. But when his crew is tasked with stealing Pandora's Box for the government, it opens a door to destruction, and her name is Harmony Andrews.
A risk-taking investment broker by day, and a thief by night, Harmony is a member of the underground Digi Robins crew. Stealing relics to sell on the dark web, they donate the money to people without insurance who need life-saving medical treatments.
What she doesn't realize is the box she just stole is the very one her boss is looking for––the boss who just happens to be an immortal pirate. And as their adventure heads into the danger zone, she doesn't know what's more dangerous: the risk to her life or the risk to her heart.

3.5 Stars - Well written story, loving this series!
Every book I read from Lisa Kessler reminds me why I love her writing so much – from the well-developed plot and characters to a writing style that practically reads the words off the page for me, I never finish a book disappointed. And even though I wasn’t a huge fan of this particular story since I wasn’t totally on board with the relationship between the main characters, this was still an enjoyable read that had me captivated from start to finish.
Although I did like both John and Harmony as individual characters, there was something about them as a couple that never really clicked into place for me until the very end of the book. Since these two have known each other for years, the insta-love type vibe, which often doesn’t work at all for me, felt a bit out of place between these two and I think what was missing for me was that I would have liked to have been some spark that started when they first met and was just ignored until circumstances had them coming together. Even though I wasn’t all-in with John & Harmony as a couple (and even they had a hard time getting on board with their relationship!), in typical Lisa Kessler fashion there is no shortage of fantastic dialogue and emotional depth written into the story and no one is better at writing a hero who can have you swooning – and often times also laughing out loud – even in the most dangerous of circumstances.
I am absolutely loving this crew of immortal pirates as well as following the series arc as the secrets behind Agent Bale and Department 51 are revealed. Every new story in the series has added characters to the mix that keep enhancing the overall series, and getting glimpses at the crew and characters we haven’t met yet in their own book have me looking forward to see what’s next for the crew.
If a pirate’s life is for you or you just love a wonderfully written book with all the feels, then you can’t go wrong with this one – or any book written by Lisa Kessler!
