The Pirate Lord

The Pirate Lord - Sabrina Jeffries The story has such a promising beginning. I was actually looking forward to learn more about Sara. Then Gideon entered. All was well. Kidnapping a shipload of women for a paradise colony, ok, i can work with that.
Then Gideon all of a sudden became obsessive about Sara. Of course I have read stories like this before and totally bought the "I must have you" thing. But somehow I just don't feel that Sara was the center of his being. I mean Ms Jeffrries tried. I know she planned plots to cultivate the feelings. But the romance didn't speak to me. It just didn't feel true. I get that Gideon wants to sleep with Sara. But how do we go from lust to love?? I didn't see that happening for Sara and Gideon.

I read Jordan's story before Sara's and had the same feeling: almost there. But not quite. Hence a mediocre 3 stars.
