Captain's Private Journal, May 30, 1790
My heart pounds hard in my chest as I think of her-the lass awaiting me, naked in my cabin as I commanded. She was discovered masquerading as one of my seamen, yet I am still appalled at myself for demanding such a lewd price for her passage. But when I looked into her eyes-wide, but somehow beckoning-I was filled with a need deeper than any I'd ever known.
For her. For Julianna.
Can I truly touch her and taste her and satisfy my lust on her without taking the maidenhead meant for another? I am a man of impeccable self-control-an asset that has redeemed my family and ensured I'll not become my wayward father. Then what has taken hold of me? Each moment, the urge to go to her and steal away all that rightfully belongs to another man grows more irresistible. I must touch her. I must hold her. I must drive myself into her . . .
I must not.

"The last thing we need on this boat is a bloody virgin." Forced to out herself as a female in disguise rather than a young seaman, Julianna's reckless attempt to reach America and her lost love has just gotten a little more exciting. Okay, a lot, actually! Publically debased, for her own good, and then imprisoned in the Captain's quarters for the duration of the voyage, at the beck and pleasure of the Captain himself. Could it get any worse? Maybe, but I can promise you it definitely gets better! Much, much better!! I just love a heroine that doesn't fall apart even under pressure. Julianna is spunky, strong willed, clever and almost more than one man can handle. Captain Price has to draw upon every last ounce of his patience to not take what both he and Julianna desperately want. Despite the "acts of fornication" Julianna witnesses on board the ship she truly is an innocent. Drew teaches her so much about how to pleasure herself as well as a man. Ms. Sinclair's writing is so vivid it felt deliciously voyeuristic to be taken along for the lessons. The point of view changes quite often throughout this short story moving back and forth between Captain Price and Julianna. Thankfully, it isn't difficult to follow. Ms. Sinclair's use of the Captain's log to dictate Captain Price's thoughts and reveal his plans to the reader was brilliant. Ms. Sinclair never fails to entertain with her unique characters, witty dialogue and well developed plots. Captain's Price was no exception. I quickly soaked up this novella in one setting and can't wait to see what Ms. Sinclair has waiting for us next. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews

This is a short read but it packs a punch in sensuality and, eventually, the emotional engagement of the hero and heroine that makes for a great romantic read.

**Thus far, the BEST Novel Published by Ellora's Cave** Julianna Burton has deceived Captain Price and his crew of the Redemption, for the past few weeks. By disguising herself and her maid, Bess, as boys. To gain free passage and sail to America to be reunited with her intended childhood friend, Jeremy. Her "ONE TRUE LOVE!" While Julianna is scrubbing the deck aboard the ship, as a boy, every so often she sneaks a few glances at her magnificent captain. With his strikingly handsome features, his broad shoulders, and those glistening eyes that reflect all the many facets of the sea. Caught in her dreamlike state, Julianna is unaware of the trick one of the crew members are about to perform upon her. Instead of side-stepping his advantage, she slaps him across the face. Causing a woman's reaction from his lewd act. As she is discovered by Captain Price, he must dealt the appropriate punishment. If failure to do so, he will be faced with the grim reality of seeming weak in front of his crew. Captain Price presents Julianna with an ultimatum either entertain him by being tied to his bedpost for the duration of their voyage, or be sequestered below deck entertaining his crew. Alas, what's a young maiden to do? As Julianna has made her decision, Captain Price ravishes her upon his deck as his crew bears witness. A clear and decisive warning to all that Julianna belongs to him and him alone! With a dramatic twist of fate, an enchanted spell as been casted upon them. The lustful desires they possess for one another, transform into an EVERLASTING LOVE, neither of them ever knew possible. Another SUPERBLY novel by Ms. Sinclair. An EXCEPTIONALLY WRITTEN LOVE STORY! BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! EXPLOSIVELY HOT, I was GASPING for AIR at times. I finished it all in 1 sitting! WELL DONE MS. SINCLAIR, DEFINITELY DESERVES NOTHING LESS THAN A 10 STAR RATING!
