BLURB: 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 who the sailors call the butcher to stay with him?

 

lorraineHow can you love a book that is so silly, that it becomes silliness personified? Well, I did! It reminded me so much of the old fashioned Mills and Boon bodice rippers, where the heroine is being thoroughly debauched and keeps saying “you beast!” over and over again (the author certainly had a liking for that word – you will read it a lot!). All that is different is that that heroine is called Stephen (complete with the Mills and Boon obligatory golden curls), a gentleman of the finest quarter, a doctor and pretty nifty with his sword (now I could be completely crass here with that word, but I will refrain) oh, and let’s not forget the eye-rolling (yes, we are back to Mills and Boon again – sorry but I just can’t help it). Anyway, I love pirates and particularly Stephen’s pirate, his banter and innuendos were smutty and so much fun to read – I loved it! I’m sure that the author had great fun writing this tongue-in-cheek, sexy, pirate’s tale as I had in reading it. It finished pretty abruptly, with no declaration of love but it’s there, it’s really there and I would love to read more of their high sea capers.
