Read an Excerpt

The Captain's Beloved

Captain Kane Kessler had been back in Josh Addison’s life exactly five minutes and already he was trying to touch him intimately, pawing at him through his clothes in the hall as Josh tried to kick his shoes off, giggling, falling over his feet.

“Wait...wait...just let me...”

Kane growled. His own shoes were long gone, his coat on the floor. He grabbed Josh, swept him up into his arms and carried him through the living room towards the stairs. Josh clung on, panting in excitement, his last shoe dropping off halfway up the stairs.

Kane paused at the top, looking at the three doors ahead of him. “Which one?”

“Straight ahead.”

Kane leant down to devour his mouth as he carried Josh into his bedroom, dropping him unceremoniously onto the bed.


Josh scrambled to obey. Oh God, never in his wildest fantasies had he imagined any reunion with Kane to go this way. Never had he expected Kane to stride back into his life and take command the way he ran that cruise ship where he’d seduced Josh effortlessly last summer.

Josh wore his less sexy boxers, hardly expecting to come home from work to an evening of passion. But Kane, intent on stripping, didn’t seem to notice in the darkness of the room. Instead, he stood naked and grinning at the end of Josh’s bed as though awaiting inspection.

Josh tossed the boxers into a dark corner. He groaned, gripping the bed covers as his gaze took in the chiselled jaw and midnight black hair of the captain before he feasted his eyes on his six feet two of hard muscle and his glorious cock. “Shit, I think you might have got even hotter, if that’s possible.”

Kane’s grin widened, grey eyes glinting. “Now I know why I like you so much, Josh.”

Josh’s smile slipped slightly. Kane’s ego he could do without, a gentle reminder that Josh wasn’t in his league and was lucky Kane had ever noticed him. Not that Kane had ever said that when they were together. On the contrary, he had showered Josh with compliments and told him he was beautiful. Josh’s inferiority complex was all in his own imagination.

Kane grabbed his pants and dug into the pocket. He dropped a box of condoms and a tube of lubricant on the bed. Then he pounced.

They kissed, Kane holding Josh’s hands down by his head in a way which drove his excitement to boiling point. When Josh flexed his wrists, Kane merely pressed harder until Josh whimpered, bucking his erection into Kane’s, desperate to touch him.

Kane let go and sat back on his heels, smirking. He reached for the condom box and unwrapped it before he took out one foil square, tearing it open.

Perhaps he saw the disappointed look on Josh’s face as he rolled the condom on because he said, “This might not be the romantic reunion you were hoping for and more of a wham, bam, thank you man, and I’m sorry about that, but Josh baby, if you so much as touch me, I’ll explode.”

He always read Josh just right, but he always knew just what to say too. “It’s okay,” he said softly, running his hands up Kane’s bare thighs.

Kane opened the lube. “You sure?”

“Yes. I want you.”

“Good.” Kane leant down to kiss him. Wet fingers probed gently between Josh’s legs. Kane left a trail of searing kisses down Josh’s torso to his groin. He sucked Josh’s cock down while he fingered him.

Josh writhed beneath him, gripping Kane’s hair. “Fuck, oh Kane, I missed you, I missed you.” He could have bitten his tongue off. Well done, Josh, he’s here ten minutes and already you’re getting all emotional. He’ll be out the door as soon as he’s shot his load.

Kane looked up from beneath dense lashes, eyes unreadable in the darkness. He slid off Josh’s cock and settled himself on his arms over him. “I missed you too,” he whispered with lips an inch away from Josh’s as he thrust into him.

Josh arched up in shock, clawing Kane’s back. He’d had no one in four months and the pain-pleasure of the penetration was exquisite. He danced along a line of ecstasy so double-edged as Kane fucked him, he was not sure whether to beg him to stop or scream for more.

Kane noticed. He stopped his movements. “Are you okay?” He stroked damp hair back gently from Josh’s face.

“Yes, yes.”

“Are you sure?”


“Can you take this?”

“I think I proved I could take you last summer.”

“That was last summer. Has it been a while?” Kane held steady eye contact. He was asking Josh if there’d been anyone else since him.
