    Summary

    Hiram Kalloway joined the naval service at the late age of thirteen, his mother having insisted on him remaining home until that age in order to gain some additional polish.

    Over the years, Hiram gained a reputation for being an odd, bookish sort, but a fair enough captain who fought like a devil and read the sea like a lover, and kept to himself for the most part. Hiram knew he had a good reputation, as these things went, but also rather a peculiar one. He swam, because he liked it, which was considered very odd, and he did not eat jellied desserts, because he did not like them. He detested any number of naval practices that were standard on other ships, and turned a blind eye to others, and as a result he had been called an odd duck more than once.

    And that was all fine, until he met Isaac Upton, a ship's master with a sharp tongue and a sharper temper, a man who seemed willing to castigate any and all members of the Admiralty who were inclined to cheat his captain, regardless of their power or influence.

    Summary

    He pulled a handkerchief from his pocket. Something fell out of it and skittered across the floor.

    “You…” Edward hesitated to ask. “You make a habit of carrying teeth in your pocket?”

    John glanced down at the tooth lying there.

    “Worth a shilling, that,” he said. “Always got a couple about my person in case of need.”

    Edward swallowed. John grinned and kissed him. Edward wondered how he could want a man who carried human teeth in his pocket like loose change.
