Two years have passed since Frederica joined Gaston aboard the Ocean’s Knave, and with every passing hour they have fallen more deeply in love. By day she is the ship’s physician, but at night she serves her captain in his bed, offering her body for him to punish and pleasure until she begs for more. But after a successful run of raiding other pirate ships, the couple have a target on their backs.
Their only hope is to form an alliance with a trio of like-minded captains, but in order to guarantee the cooperation of these unyielding, battle-hardened men, Gaston is forced to offer them a night with Frederica. Reluctantly, she agrees to be shared with the men, but afterwards Gaston finds it difficult to forgive himself for bartering Frederica’s charms. As jealousy and desperation threaten to consume him, will Gaston lose his beloved Frederica or can he weather the storm and find a way to bind her to him forever?
Erotic romance, set in the world of privateers and pirates, and it was precisely this thing to intrigue me and draw my attention. This is the first time I read a BDSM book in this type of reality.
If I must be honest it was not love at first sight with the protagonists, but maybe it's my fault, since I started reading this series by its second book.
I found Frederica and Gaston already as a couple, but something in their Dom/sub relationship is missing for me. I found Gaston in this story too insicure and brooding even though is the Dom, he takes his decisions and then once Frederica obeys him, however he is not able to accept the weight of the consequences.
And Frederica seems a little too naïve and inexperienced, but she let go without too many thoughts when Gaston asks her to join a three men without him.
Nice, the sex scenes are very hot, but I didn't feel very involved reading their adventures.
Thanks to Netgalley and Stormy Night Publication for the book.

Erotic romance carino, ambientato nel mondo di corsari e pirati, ed è stata proprio questa cosa a incuriosirmi e attirare la mia attenzione. È la prima volta che mi capita di leggere un libro BDSM in questo tipo di realtà.
Se devo essere sincera non è stato amore a prima vista con i protagonisti, ma forse è colpa mia, visto che sono partita a leggere questa serie dal suo secondo libro.
Ho trovato Frederica e Gaston già come coppia, ma qualcosa nel loro legame Dom/sub non mi torna. Gaston in questa storia, pur essendo il Dom, pasticcia veramente abbastanza, prende decisioni e poi una volta che Frederica obbedisce, comunque lui non è in grado di reggerne il peso delle conseguenze.
E Frederica mi sembra faccia un po' troppo l'ingenua e l'inesperta, per poi lasciarsi andare sempre troppi pensieri quando Gaston le chiede di partecipare a una threesome, senza di lui.
Carino, con scene molto hot, ma non mi sono sentita molto coinvolta nel leggere le loro avventure.
Ringrazio Netgalley e la Stormy Night Publication per il libro.
