Can a pirate and a doctor find love on the seas?
Stephen is a doctor, a practical man who wishes his sister wouldn't worry so about the pirates that plague their island home. So it's ironic that Stephen himself is set upon by just those pirates, who carry him off to heal their wounded captain.
John is a pirate captain, master of his fate, and used to getting what he wants. And he decides he wants Stephen, even when the good doctor wants nothing more than to run away from him.
Can the beast convince the doctor the sailors call the butcher to stay with him? 
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of non-consensual sex.
Publisher's Note: This book was previously published elsewhere. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Totally Bound.

Pirate fantasies are fulfilled with this growly Sean Michaels book. Stephen is a proper gentleman who is a doctor. He scoffs at his fearful sister's worries about pirates circling their new island home. So to his chagrin, when he's captured by pirates and forced to heal the captain of the pirates, he realizes he should have heeded her warnings. John, the pirate Captain, is gleeful in his capture of a doctor who is both young and attractive. A devotee of manlove, John delights in the corruption of virginal Stephen.

The sex in here is as expected from a Mr. Michaels book. It's deliciously raw and filled with primal grunting. There is no pussy footing around here. There is only stalk and prey. Stephen's debauchery into taboo carnal pleasure is fun to witness. He protests as much as he likes, but it makes no difference because he loves the hard anal thrusting orgasms. His newly initiated hole cannot get enough of the pirate's punishing plundering.

The dialogue between the two characters are a bit wince-worthy. The world building is light. The character building is almost nonexistent. The chemistry between the two main characters is what makes this story fun to read. The constant denials and then lusty mating make for a good emotional tug-of-war. The ending is predictable with a happily ever after. Recommended for m/m readers who have pirate ravaging fantasies.
