My friend Jill Knowles primarily writes erotic romance, and I recently read her ebook A Pirate’s Primer. Set in a world of magic and wooden sailing ships, A Pirate’s Primer is a M/M erotic fantasy like her more recent release Concubine (reviewed here). Unlike Concubine, however, Primer doesn’t have any consent issues. This is more of a true romance, where the characters’ union is one of equals who come together out of mutual desire.
There ‘s more to this book than the erotic interludes, however. While those are for the most part well written, the characters Jill has created bring more to the relationship than just their physical needs. My only complaint is that the final love scene is a little too similar in the particulars to an earlier one, but this is a minor issue.
A Pirate’s Primer is the first in the Grey Lady series, and one of Jill’s strongest stories. I recommend it.
