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…



Pirate’s Passion is the story between a historian and an immortal pirate. At first Char doesn’t know that Keegan is the Samuel Keegan from the Sea Dog, the pirate ship that Char has done a lot of research on. So, when it turns out that the hot lead singer of the Scallywags band is a man she’s only read in history books, she’s a bit blow back to say the least. As it turns out not only are pirates immortal, the but holy grail is real, and there’s a secret government division who needs her expertise to help them find the cup before it’s too late.

Obviously, with the mix of immortal pirates and the holy grail, you can tell that there’s a lot of paranormal stuff going on. However, the author incorporates even more by introducing shamans, mediums, and shifters into the mix. Between the paranormal aspect and the high-stakes chase for the holy grail, the story was filled with adventure.

Even though this is the second book in a series, it stands alone on its own just fine. In fact, I have not read the first book in the series and was a bit worried I’d feel left out by jumping in with this book. However, everything feels fresh and new, as if it’s the first book in the series. I never felt like I was missing a piece of the puzzle or that things were already connected into place before I came on the scene.

Pirate’s Passion is an interesting mix of paranormal, suspense, and romance. It was a fun take on a pirate’s tale or even a paranormal romance. The reason why I gave it 3 stars is because I found myself being bored and skimming a lot during the book. It just never fully held my attention for some reason.
