I enjoyed this book. It's a short story wrapped around erotica...friction fiction. I would have loved to have the story developed more because the premise has a good foundation. When I finished I really wanted it to continue, I wanted to spend more time with these seamen.

The characters aren't really fully developed but on the surface they are likeable. The sex scenes are detailed and skillfully written. Mr. Simpson does a good job creating this world and putting you in the era.

On an average 5 st
Very short, simple story. The characters had no depth, no development, often seemed to behave in radically different ways with no good explanation. Reading was a waste of an hour. The sex scenes were rarely interesting. The world was more developed than anything else, but it wasn't really an educational story about early privateers. No one seemed to express any emotion... everything was told to the reader very simply and directly.
First off, this is a romp. It is not going for historical accuracy. This is clear from the first couple of pages–more anachronisms than the whole of Braveheart. If you can get past that and are eager to get to the piratey goodness then that’s fine.

Blain sets off with a crew all set to plunder and as in the best of piratey fantasies, all the men (except one) is OK about men loving men. This will lead to a contented crew, apparently–and one handed contended readers, I’m sure!

The sex scenes are par

It was otay. I think I just couldn't get with the historical pirates thing. I think if it was present day pirates I would have been otay with it. It wasn't bad but it just wasn't for me.
The wild roguishness of pirates is always one of my favs. This story is short and sweet and I'd like to have seen where it goes from the ending on.
