Publisher's Summary

Vyper is a dashing pirate whose name strikes fear in the hearts of blackguards and civilians alike. A fortuitous message in a bottle leads Vyper to the island of Jamaica, but soon entangles him in a web of lies, deceit, and double-crosses, and introduces him to the man who may plunder Vyper's heart and destroy his world.
Byron Caldwell is a handsome, titled British landowner, whose holdings include a thriving plantation on the island of Jamaica. The only shadow on his otherwise brilliant future is his shrew of a sister, Elizabeth. It's his intention to marry her off as soon as possible, if only he can find someone willing to take her off his hands.
Elizabeth wants one thing and one thing only, the key to the Caldwell fortune, and she'll stop at nothing to get it, including arranging the kidnapping and eventual death of her brother by hiring the most ferocious pirate she can find.
The events spurred by a seemingly innocuous message found in a bottle washed ashore on a tiny island in the Caribbean soon set Vyper's life on its ear and may ultimately bring about his demise.

Sexy, Saucy Swashbuckling Fun

Where does Vyper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very highly. I thought it was a great yarn, beautifully narrated. The pirate genre led to a great number of colorful accents and salty characters... and the two heroes were totally engaging and the sister was a really wonderful antagonist.

What did you like best about this story?

I thought the world building was excellent. I thought Vyper was such a sexy character ... and his first mate Toby was adorable. I really hope he gets his own book. I think the plot was really strong - and the sex is woven into it in a great way.

Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favorite?

I loved Vyper, dry, witty and totally sexy. The delivery is brilliant. I also loved his Toby. The narrator's delivery of the sister was also really impressive.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

One of my favorite m/m stories that i've read. It was my first pirate romance and I thought it was so much fun.

Any additional comments?

loved it

Swashbuckling M/M Romance

Would you listen to Vyper again? Why?

Yes. Loved the narration. Vyper was wonderful. Family ties and interactions proved intriguing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It finished the story but allowed for future stories of Toby and Elizabeth should the author desire to tell them. I liked the way the strings were tied up at the end and the future laid out seemed possible for the remaining characters.

Have you listened to any of Joel Leslie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I listened to "The Duke in Denial" and loved it. Joel Leslie provides a diverse range of voices, dialects and accents that work so very well. His voice is excellent to listen to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I hated the aspect of abuse and the fact that it was perpetrated on the young - wanted to smash more than one person mentioned. Also hated the idea of slavery though realize it was commonplace in the time and location of this story.

Any additional comments?

Thoroughly enjoyable read and I thank the narrator for the copy to listen to. It made exercising SO much more enjoyable. My review is my honest response to what I listened to. I would recommend this to those who enjoy and are looking for a M/M historical romance.

Tale of high seas and adventure

Very entertaining tale of romance on the high seas, deceit, treasure and adventure. I loved the main characters. Charismatic Pirate Captain Viper and his cabin boy Toby, entitled Lord Byron and his wicked Sister Elizabeth. Great twists and turns in the story.
Once again Joel Leslie has made this tale captivating. He is so good at accents and brining characters to life you can really picture them. The characterisation of the self centred sister was wonderfully done.
Perfect escapism.
