Are You Ready For A Breeches-ripper?
Will a virgin captive surrender to this pirate's sinful touch? "[L]oads of very hot dirty sex in which Nathaniel is a very willing participant.... Just as their relationship is developing, the action kicks in with battles at sea, treachery, daring rescues, heroic actions, and suffice it to say that your swash will be thoroughly buckled, and your timbers definitely shivered!" ~ Gay Book Reviews Nathaniel Bainbridge is used to hiding, whether it's concealing his struggles with reading or his forbidden desire for men. Under the thumb of his controlling father, the governor of Primrose Isle, he's sailing to the fledging colony, where he'll surrender to a respectable marriage for his family's financial gain. Then pirates strike and he's kidnapped for ransom by the Sea Hawk, a legendary villain of the New World. Bitter and jaded, Hawk harbors futile dreams of leaving the sea for a quiet life, but men like him don't deserve peace. He has a score to settle with Nathaniel's father—the very man whose treachery forced him into piracy—and he's sure Nathaniel is just as contemptible. Yet as days pass in close quarters, Nathaniel's feisty spirit and alluring innocence beguile and bewitch. Although Hawk knows he must keep his distance, the desire to teach Nathaniel the pleasure men can share grows uncontrollable. It's not as though Hawk would ever feel anything for him besides lust… Nathaniel realizes the fearsome Sea Hawk's reputation is largely invented, and he sees the lonely man beneath the myth, willingly surrendering to his captor body and soul. As a pirate's prisoner, he is finally free to be his true self. The crew has been promised the ransom Nathaniel will bring, yet as danger mounts and the time nears to give him up, Hawk's biggest battle could be with his own heart.

Birdwatchers — A Steamy Outdoor Encounter
He came for the birds, but stumbled into the arms of a saucy minx. This literotic short shares steamy encounter on a late summer birdwatching afternoon. -- EXCERPT She reaches behind her and tugs at the strings. They come apart and her white bikini top falls around her waist. She gathers her hair and wraps it in a scarf on top of her head. Then she lies back. She reaches for her book. Her breasts settle on her chest. Her nipples, the colour of wrens, face the blue sky. It's quiet here. Tourists don't hike this far up the mountain. She must know it; she doesn't bother looking around before slipping a hand into her bikini bottom. The motion of her fingers is obvious beneath the fluttering fabric. Her breathing deepens into a rhythm. Her chest rises and falls, lifting and lowering the book she clutches in her left hand while her right one shudders between her legs. Her belly is tight. Her crimson lips are soft and pouting. "Oh!" she cries. But her voice is swallowed by the forest. Her canary yellow picnic blanket is crumpled in a nest around her. Her body is turbulent, swept away by a squall. It whips her until she starts to tremble, her headscarf comes loose and, finally, she drops the book. "Oh!" she cries again, and arches her back against the rock bed. Her sunglasses topple off her face. Her eyes are hummingbird green and beating their wings in the storm. And then, she sees me. Hands fly to cover her naked breasts, but the tempest rages on. She is helpless against it, and I watch. She rolls onto her belly, body still billowing. Her legs curl beneath her, knees to chest, and she buries her face in the blanket. The gale becomes a breeze and fades into the distance.
