Captain Mary Allen masquerades as a man, rescuing kidnapped women from pirates and lives of prostitution. For just one night, Mary wants to shed her public persona and simply feel like a woman. Antonio, the delicious mercenary she secretly fantasizes about, is quite capable of the task.
An homage to the iconic Roman Holiday, this short story is a pirate captain romance with a contemporary feel.
