Book Description

The Classics Exposed…

Professor Pierre Aronnax, world-renowned Naturalist, is part of an elite team of men commissioned to investigate a series of attacks on international shipping. Are the attacks the work of some ancient sea monster, or is this “monster” actually a manmade vessel? No one is certain, but either way, Pierre’s assignment is the same: find it and destroy it.

The hunt soon becomes tedious, and Pierre is distracted by Ned Land, a sexy and temperamental harpooner who has his sights set on the Professor. The two begin a passionate affair, but an encounter with the creature they seek changes everything.

Professor Aronnax, Ned Land, and their friend Conseil find themselves held hostage aboard The Nautilus, a secret submarine helmed by the mysterious Captain Nemo. For Pierre, life on The Nautilus is ideal. He spends his days studying the sea’s wonders, and his nights with Ned, discovering a passion he’s never known. But how long can it last? Captain Nemo is reckless, and Ned is determined to escape. Caught between two charismatic men and the opportunity of a lifetime, Pierre will have to choose: leave The Nautilus, or lose the man he loves forever?

Review

"Again, I just loved Marie Sexton's romance enhanced version of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea." - Joyfully Jay

About the Author

Marie Sexton lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I mean, I thought this was going to be a love story, maybe captain Nemo was gay, I don't know, but this idiot gets on board the first boat and it just became sex, sex, sex no love, no romance. The way they were going at it, you think they invented Viagra back then. I don't believe I got past the first two chapters. It was really boring and all they seem to do is spread Syphilis to every member of the crew.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good re-telling of a great classic November 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good re-telling of a great Jules Verne classic. From the first page to the last this book kept my interest. Marie Sexton did a wonderful job in keeping to the feel of the original, but with a decidedly modern twist of reinventing the main characters as multi-dementional gay men. The romance between Professor Pierre Aronnax and Canadian Ned Land was passionate and quite fun to see it develop throughout the book, and the amazing under sea world of the Nautilus and Captian Nemo let me enjoy a favorite childhood classic in a modern, fresh, and adult themed fashioned. Readers who enjoyed this as an adolescent will enjoy it again as re-imagined by Marie Sexton for the 21st century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jules Verne ++ March 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is not what I expected. The bulk of it is the original text (translated and somewhat edited). What Marie Sexton has added is a description of the sexual and romantic relationship between Professor Aronnax and Ned Land. This relationship lives and develops in the crevasses of the original story, without changing the plot overmuch. Her additions do, however, serve to deepen our understanding of the characters and - to be perfectly honest - really do help break up some rather monotonous descriptions of coral. I was impressed with how well her additions blend almost seamlessly with the original text.

For reference: I found the sex scenes to be neither gratuitous nor graphic. Aside from the gender of the participants, they stayed well within my experience of sex scenes in modern mainstream romance.

1.0 out of 5 stars AWFUL June 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is such a terrible book that I returned it to Amazon. It is an insult to one of the truly beautiful classical books. To list the author as Jules Verne whilst Marie Sexton is committing bad plagiarism is insufferable.
