"Plunder" is different from other audio books in the erotica genre for three reasons: perspective, performance, and plot.
The story is written from the perspective of the narrator, a 50-something hard-edged New England bachelor. He is neither consumed with the prospect of getting laid, nor immune to the charms of young women. A professional group that he manages, comprised of older men, requests that he find them a courtesan who, in addition to serving the men sexually, would make recommendations about business ventures. The narrator worries about STD testing, potential pregnancy, practical transportation issues, and above all, the group's professional reputation. In other words, he's not your usual erotic hero.
The plot is organized around Eva, the college student who agrees to the unusual arrangement. She's a twist on the "hooker with a heart of gold" personae. Kinky, loving, and well-intentioned, Eva forges a unique relationship with each man in the group, being just want he needs to fit the situation. Perhaps her greatest asset is to understand that these are kind-hearted men who are just trying to live out the sexual fantasies of their youth, exploring the terrain that propriety, religion, and feminism denied them.
Peter Klein voices the male characters, while Mira Noire is Eva. Performed more like a radio play than an audio book, there is a greater sense of interaction by the characters. The voices do reinforce the age difference between partners.
"Plunder" is obviously a fantasy. Some of the storylines resolve themselves a little too easily, but that's ok. There's no guilt, no jealousy, and everyone comes at just the right time. That's the nature of erotica. But it's also a revealing look at the thoughts and fetishes of older men--not something you find very often in this genre.
