Just as their relationship is developing, the action kicks in with battles at sea, treachery, daring rescues, heroic actions, and suffice it to say that your swash will be thoroughly buckled, and your timbers definitely shivered!" ~ Gay Book Reviews Nathaniel Bainbridge is used to hiding, whether it's concealing his struggles with reading or his forbidden desire for men.

Yet as days pass in close quarters, Nathaniel's feisty spirit and alluring innocence beguile and bewitch. Although Hawk knows he must keep his distance, the desire to teach Nathaniel the pleasure men can share grows uncontrollable. It's not as though Hawk would ever feel anything for him besides lust… Nathaniel realizes the fearsome Sea Hawk's reputation is largely invented, and he sees the lonely man beneath the myth, willingly surrendering to his captor body and soul. As a pirate's prisoner, he is finally free to be his true self. The crew has been promised the ransom Nathaniel will bring, yet as danger mounts and the time nears to give him up, Hawk's biggest battle could be with his own heart.
