"Seriously, it's like Outlander with Pirates!"
During the year of 1753, I was sailing the West Indies, minding the oars in me own ship, pursuing me purpose in life, to disrupt the unholy alliance of two corrupt men and destroy their lives as they destroyed mine. I mistakenly kidnapped Catherine Mackenzie - wrong person,easy mistake, you understand - and me life went arsey . . . turvey. Having lost hearth and heart to the Jacobite War, and wanted by King Georgie's courts. Cate has lived many years destitute and alone. She desires but one thing: a place to belong. How could I deny that?
Alas, if it were only that simply.
It's a story of scarred people, blinded by defenses.
It's the story of trust or rater the lack of.
It's the story of loss of faith and heart.
It's the story of a Captain's life.

The Pirate Captain, Chronicles of a Legend, Nor Silver
From UK - 5 stars Brilliant,
Anyone who enjoys anything to do with sailing and pirates in general will love this book. The characters are well thought out and you find yourself deeply engaged from the get go and often find yourself rooting for characters you previously were unsure of. A good length of a book full of rich details. I was devastated when I finished as now I'll have to wait until the follow up! Highly recommended!
5 stars Fantastic Read Soooooooooo good. I loved this book more than I ever thought I would. When I saw it was like Outlander with pirates I thought I had to give it a go but not in my wildest dreams did I think I would have been completely enraptured with the story as I was. This exciting historical adventure had me completely engrossed, I loved the characters and their background stories and even had a giggle or two with the pirate slang but I was also almost in tears especially in the last chapter. I would say this is one of my favourite books I have read this year and I think it's a story I will go back to again just to live in that little fantasy world with Nathan and Cate. Now on to Nor Gold because I can't bear to wait to see what the next adventure brings.
The Pirate Captain: Nor Gold
From US - 5 stars Unforgettable Characters,
Lynne's characters, main as well as supporting, are complex and well developed through her descriptive writing. Nor Gold is a page turner of pirate adventures and relationships with an exciting plot that keeps you wanting more straight through to the end, and even then you can't believe it's over! This is the type of story that when you have finished reading the characters stay with you, and you miss them; by no means is this a take off of the "Pirates of the Caribbean"
From UK - 5 stars, Absolute Brilliance Can I give this 100 stars because 5 is nowhere near enough. It's rare that the second book in a series is better than the first but Nor Gold completely and utterly blew the first book out of the water. I don't even know what to say right now it was exceptional. The emotions I went through while reading this are nothing short of bordering on full on crazy. There were times my jaw literally hit the floor with some of the twists and turns, I hated Thomas and then loved him, could have banged Cate and Nathan's heads together on plenty more occasions and could have cried enough tears to float the Ciara Morganse. The last couple of chapters had my heart in my mouth and beating about 1000 beats a second, I'm absolutely speechless with that ending. I can't wait until book three now and I daren't even try to guess what might happen next because I didn't even come close with how I thought this one would go.
