Before reading this story, consider:
1. It contains graphic descriptions of sex.
2. British money was denominated in either Guineas or Pounds. A Guinea was worth about 25-30 shillings, while a Pound was worth about 20 shillings. If coins are used, the reference is in Guineas, otherwise it is in Pounds. A guinea is worth approximately $300 US dollars in 2009, which means a shilling was worth approximately $10.
3. The characters in this story are fictional with the exception of some well-known historical figures. The involvement of those characters is fictional.
4. The story is written with modern day language, as opposed to that used in 18th century England.

The first book in what became the Bridgemont Saga and it is a fabulous introduction into life aboard an English warship.  Granger is a personable guy with a penchant for charming his way into intimate relationships and this is where it all started.  Please read the story comments that accompany this story.  While I originally came to GA for Arbour's CAP series, this series has also become a favorite that I love just as much! Mark Arbour has published 29 stories on site with  5.3 million words and counting.  

READ AND ENJOY!
