9780736670333: The King's Coat

In 1780, 17-year-old Alan Lewrie is rebellious and close to being a libertine, so much so that his father believes a bit of naval discipline will turn the boy around. Fresh aboard the king's ship ARIADNE, Midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas, finding - rather unexpectedly - that he is a born sailor, equally at home on bawdy shore leave or afloat and in battle at sea. A vastly popular series, we watch Lewrie mature, but not to the point where he outgrows his appetite for adventure and risk, and for all that comes with them.

But in a hail of cannonballs comes a bawdy surprise....
