Imagine Pirates of the Caribbean, only gay. The inspiration is pretty obvious. Oh, not that I complain, mind you, it's a pretty sweet book, if thin on the plot - what there is of the plot, is pretty interesting and I actually felt a bit sorry that the author didn't focus more on that, that she didn't thicken it, instead of going down the easy road and peppering the book with gratuitous sex scenes - pretty hot sex scenes, though. So yeah, a good book and even though it's nothing outstanding, I'll...more

Adam is a crippled man, son of an evil man who betrays the sacred oath that pirates make to the Goddess of Sea. And now the Goddess has sent her man, Captain Fox, to take hand of the matter. And Adam wants to help Jaden, cause he has read about him and his ghostly ship. And Jaden makes a pact with Adam: he will teach to the crew how to write and read and Jaden will teach to Adam how to love.

I really liked this book. It's a great short story with the right amount of smexin' to go with the plot and it is very well written.

Sexy men, pirates, and paranormal what's not to love? :)
I read this story second time now and I really enjoyed it, again. The plot is developed with interesting characters who made this story alive. Jaden and Adam were hot together with nice touch of romance, sweetness and love. The story is enjoyable and highly recommended on.

Sudah lama ga baca roman m/m, yang ini tipis banget ga sampe 100 halaman. Cuz temanya pirate, yang kebayang cuma tampang Johnny Depp buat Jaden Fox, kapten Grey Lady. Sedangkan buat Adam Chandler masih ga jelas... Orlando Bloom aja gitu ya?
