Are You Ready For A Breeches-ripper?
Will a virgin captive surrender to this pirate's sinful touch? "[L]oads of very hot dirty sex in which Nathaniel is a very willing participant.... 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. Under the thumb of his controlling father, the governor of Primrose Isle, he's sailing to the fledging colony, where he'll surrender to a respectable marriage for his family's financial gain. Then pirates strike and he's kidnapped for ransom by the Sea Hawk, a legendary villain of the New World. Bitter and jaded, Hawk harbors futile dreams of leaving the sea for a quiet life, but men like him don't deserve peace. He has a score to settle with Nathaniel's father—the very man whose treachery forced him into piracy—and he's sure Nathaniel is just as contemptible. 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.

I'd once believed that nothing would equal the pain of losing my parents. I was wrong. I had barely even begun to process their deaths when it started. The love notes, flowers, gifts … all anonymously left on my porch. Then, I opened my door to a dead bird. At first, I thought it had died naturally. I knew that wasn't the case when I found my neighbor's cat the next day. Then, the murders started. The victims … women who looked eerily similar to me. I had a stalker. A murderous one. And I had no clue who he was. He never showed me his face. Not even when he carved his final message into me. I survived that night. But my life was over. It had ended the moment Tobias Ripley's infatuation with me began. So, I changed my name and moved away. Now, I live a life of solitude. I don't make connections with anyone. Until Jack Canti walks into my life with his sharp eyes and easy smiles. Only Jack isn't the man he says he is. And when the murders start again, I'm left wondering if it's a copycat. Or worse … What if Tobias wasn't the real killer after all … and the murderer has been right here with me all along?
