    It is 1780, and 17-year-old Alan Lewrie is a brash, rebellious young libertine. So much so that his callous father believes a bit of naval discipline will turn the boy around. Fresh aboard the tall-masted Ariadne, Midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas, finding - rather unexpectedly - that he is a born sailor, equally at home with the randy pleasures of the port and the raging battles on the high seas. But in a hail of cannonballs comes a bawdy surprise.

    If you're hoping, as I was, to dive into a new series you may want to reconsider.

    I was enjoying this audiobook tremendously, and with less than an hour of it left, I was looking forward to starting the next one immediately. Unfortunately, the second book in the series requires 2 Credits (as do many others).

    This seems to be an arbitrary condition set by the publisher — most of the books in the series are around the same length, between 13 and 15 1/2 hours, but all those 15 hours and longer require 2 Credits to purchase, even though the Member Price is only a couple of dollars more.

    Needless to say, I'm disappointed. On principle alone I'm not going to use a whole extra credit for a book that's only slightly longer, and paying for it outright would exceed my monthly budget for audiobooks.
