As other reviewers have pointed out, this is definitely a bodice ripper. I read it in one sitting and enjoyed it. I liked the idea of the doctor character, who starts out so prim and proper he can't even *conceive* of a man wanting another man, or having sex outside marriage, and he's slowly seduced. It would have been more powerful, though, if we'd seen a lot of that through his eyes, and 'heard' the pull of the seduction. As it was, from the pirate's POV it was more of a 'no, no, no, maybe, yes'. But anyway, if you want a little dub-con story of seduction, with pirates, this is it.
