Book Description

Winner - 2014 Goldie Award for Science Fiction/Fantasy

Life in a remote fishing village in the middle of a civil war is neither safe nor inspiring. So, when an opportunity comes along for village girl Lynn to be kidnapped and enslaved by Darren, a ruthless pirate queen, she takes full advantage of it. But Darren is neither as ruthless nor as piratical as she appears at first glance--and Lynn's not exactly what she seems to be, either. In between encounters with old girlfriends, a slow death involving marmalade, and bounty hunters with no sense of humor, Lynn and her new mistress attempt to work out exactly what they are to each other--and who's in charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kinky lesbian pirates. Hell yeah! November 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, that was a rollicking bit of fun. A bloody good story, with excellent characters. I bled with them, quaked in fear with them, and danced with joy towards the end. The dialogue is entrancing, and the twists and turns leave you breathless. But it's not all fun, and that's a good thing. There's some serious social comment buried in here. You don't have to take notice of it, but I did, and found it enhanced an already good story. Well worth the read. I'm off to see what else Benny has written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pirate Queen July 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved reading Shell Game. It's alternately written in first person narrative by the two main characters, Lynn and Darren (the Pirate Queen). My favorite aspect of this book was the author's unique style of humor. This author is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a fun read! July 14, 2013
By Martine
Format:Kindle Edition
There are so many boring and badly written books around. This book is neither. It's a well written, fun take on a very particular relationship, where the boundaries of trust and lust are explored in a refreshingly easy way. You won't regret getting it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great writing, characters, plot, and storytelling! January 25, 2014
Spent a day riding the high seas with the Darren (reluctant Pirate Queen) & Lynn (unexpectedly eager hostage of sorts). Darren and her small crew of misfits (with a few sailors on board to keep the keel down and the sails up) have been doing what they can to rescue civilians in the midst of an everlasting war among feudal lords. Then Lynn arrives and, despite her insistence on being Darren's hostage and slave ("my what and what?"), the young woman with the mysterious past manages to drive their pirating to new levels of success.
The plot is original, and the dialogue will make you laugh out loud. The characters are real - all of them. And the story is assembled like a Yankee field wall: no plaster or mortar, just a clear eye and a solid fit meant to last a 100 years! [Standing ovation here, with lots of shrill whistling!!!] Thanks for the great read. Looking forward to many more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pirates! Funny, tough pirates! October 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What's that, you say? You would like your fiction witty, fast-moving, legible, and full of women who are well-realized and strong in a variety of ways? Here, purchase this book about pirates. It is all of those things, down to the genuinely, viciously menacing evildoers. Well written, with a great deal of depth in the character development, and so clever. I liked it. I hope you will, too.
