The eldest of the Frobisher brothers, known as the lord of the privateers, Royd expects to execute the final leg of the rescue mission his brothers have been pursuing. What he does not expect is to be pressured into taking with him his emotional nemesis, childhood sweetheart, ex-handfasted bride, and business partner, Isobel Carmichael. But is it Isobel doing the pressuring, or his own restless, unfulfilled psyche? Isobel, unstoppably resolute and determined, has a mission of her own: find her cousin Katherine and bring her safely home.

What would have made Lord of the Privateers better?

If the book chapters had been correctly numbered.

The first 6 audiobook chapters are not in order. If you wish to enjoy the book as it is written listen to it in this sequence of chapters.1, 5, 6, 2, 3, 4, 7.

It is not apparent at first but in chapter 4 I started to get confused over references about travelling to London when the ship was already on its way to Freetown.

I was listening to the book in short bursts so it wasn't until almost the end of chapter 6 that I realised the chapters were out of sequence.

I have only listened up to chapter 7 so far but I believe the rest of the book to be correctly numbered.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Any additional comments?

Hope I haven't put anyone off buying the book as I'm enjoying listening to it now I've sorted out the sequence.
