"an action packed pirate tale"
Adam Chandler couldn't believe what his father and brother
had done. The scheming, going against the Sea Goddess and
code of the sea. Adam would never have known if he hadn't
been in so much pain from his injured legs. He had gone
down to get a drink and stretch his legs the best he could.
That is when he had found out that his father and brother
had gone behind the towns' people backs and hired men to go
on the ships, swore themselves to the sea goddess, but
really turning against the sea goddess and the captain of
the ship. When he finds the new pirate that they had
captured was Jaden Fox, Adam is in more shock than ever.
See Adam knew who Jaden Fox was. Unlike his father who knew
nothing of the history and who he really was; who Jaden Fox
worked for. So Adam knew what was coming. He had to make
Jaden Fox understand that the townspeople were not in on
what his father and brother were doing.
When Jaden Fox meets Adam for the first time he is taken in
by the gentle kind soul that Adam carries. He tells Adam to
be in the front row and he follows his instructions. After
a violent confrontation with Adam's father and brother,
Jaden tells Adam to follow him if he chooses. Adam wants to
more than anything but allows his fears to rule him. Later
Adam wished he had taken the pirate up on his offer. His
Father beats him so badly because he felt Adam should have
warned him about what was coming. Adam is sent to die or
was he? That is how Captain Jaden Fox finds Adam, broken
almost beyond repair, his body in extreme pain. But Jaden
offers Adam a chance to live anew on his ship. But he would
have to swear his support for the Sea Goddess and in doing
that he becomes immortal. His pain is taken away, his legs
work. Now that Adam's future is not only looking up, but so
is his personal life. Adam had only recently started to
find anything he could on love between men, what it was,
how it was before meeting back up with Jaden. So when Jaden
offered not only a future free of pain but also a future
with such pleasure, Adam knows he can't say no. As his life
is starting to look up things start to happen on the Grey
Lady. Crewmen start to disappear. Jaden and Adam know they
are on a race against time to find and stop the unknown
killer of their crew. But can they fight against this
unknown killer? Or will they lose their lives trying?
I can't say enough about this wonderful action pack story.
For one I love pirate stories but wow, add in male lovin'
and I am so there. Adam had seen so much pain in his short
life. He had fought for his country and in the process lost
the use of his legs. He can walk with crutches, but the
pain at times is almost too much for Adam. When Adam meets
Pirate Jaden Fox he is drawn to this man/ghost. Knowing
what he did about what his father and brother had done
against the Sea Goddess; Adam knew things were going to
change and change soon. But Adam's future is changing for
the better when he meets back up with Jaden. The story just
explodes from there and is fast paced until the last page.
I wanted this story to be longer than it was. I could even
see a follow up, that is how much I loved what Ms. Knowles

Despised by his family for his lame legs, Adam Chandler has given up on happiness. When a chance encounter with a legendary pirate lands him aboard the Grey Lady, a ghost ship in the service of the sea goddess, he doesn't expect much. But the ship�s captain, the handsome Jaden Fox, makes Adam a most intriguing offer: teach the pirates to read and write, and Jaden will teach Adam the ways of pleasure.
Adam is an eager student, finding Jaden's powerful caresses and playful passion give him reason to cherish his new life. Desire soon gives way to love, and Adam finally dares to believe he can be happy.
Then the first crewman disappears and it's a race against time to find the killer and save the rest of the crew. Is it another mythical creature, or will shadows from Adam's past separate the two lovers forever?
