    A reviewer

    This book was shelved in the romance section and labeled a romance on the spine so I assumed it would be an erotic romance - a love story with steamy sex. Well, it had lots of unromantic sex (some of it which was male/male and I found really unappealing) and selfish characters who didn't care about each other. No romance here. Pass on this one unless you like pure sex and nothing else.

    GOOD STORYLINE BUT TOO TRASHY

    When I first purchased this book, I thought it sounded like a good historical romance. And, don't get me wrong, it is historic and filled with romance..but the publisher failed to warn how trashy it is. I would say it is more of erotica then romance fiction.

    Off the beaten path

    Jane Lockwood gets major points for originality in this story. I expected tropical heat and boy did these characters deliver. Very, very sexy story with burning passion and vivid imagery. At first I was a bit annoyed at their clumsiness on the ship but later it turned out to be part of the whole charm. It was also a learning experience for me into ancient methods of birth control etc, very quaint. Hated the descriptions of slavery and the treatment there-in but I guess thats the reality of the matter. The twists and turns are definitely unpredictable and the journey these characters go on is definitely one worth curling up in bed for. You will not regret reading this book.

    Not your normal romance

    I applaud the author and publisher for including a m/m relationship in this romantic tale. Love is love and attraction is attraction, no matter the gender. I would love to see these types of unconventional story lines in more books.
