Choices can be hard to make
In romance, as in any other part of life, choices are required. Sometimes they almost seem to occur naturally. At other times, they’re a struggle. And even if we’ve made up our minds, it’s not necessarily true that other party agrees with us.
In Lover Enslaved, Thomas is nearly tailor-made to fall in love with his date – the prostitute Arjun. But is Arjun ready to fall in love with him? Not so much. Why not?
First of all, it’s not a good ending for a prostitute to fall in love with their client. I know, we’ve all seen Pretty Woman and the other heart-of-gold hooker loves stories, but in real life, 99.9% of the time, things just aren’t going to work that way.
Second, Arjun and Thomas are from very different cultures. Arjun knows he’s a hustler, was born a hustler, and that’s all he’ll ever be in life: a hustler. A rent boy. A pay-per-use. For him, thinking about any other life is really a stretch that requires him to think outside the box. WAY outside the box. But we all have choices, and the choices Thomas makes paves the way for Arjun to change his ideas about his life. In the end, the choice is still his, though, and as Thomas waits for his answer, so do we.
In the following excerpt, Thomas broaches the subject of a relationship for the first time and Arjun quickly shuts him down! Then, like to naked men in bed, they get busy!
Lover Enslaves is a 1 Night Stand story, out now from Decadent Publishing.
“But why would you want to do that for me?”
He pulled him down upon him once more, breathing a sigh of gratitude for every second they’d spent together. Were his feelings enough to convince Arjun to take a chance on an unknown future? “Don’t you know?” As he held him, he traced the outline of his wounds and cradled his head against his shoulder. He whispered in his ear. “I think I’m falling in love with you. I want to protect you, keep you by my side. Always.”
Arjun stiffened. For several seconds, nobody moved. Nobody breathed. How could the words have come out of his mouth so naturally? He couldn’t take them back now. He waited through the longest seconds of his life while the fear of rejection raced through him.
Finally, Arjun stirred and pushed up, spreading his legs and settling onto Thomas’ hips. “Of course you do. I’m your little pet.” Arjun’s smile was wide, but his eyes were glassy, his brave façade faltering.
Thomas absorbed the entire beauty of him while he considered how to explain his heartfelt announcement. He caressed strong quads, his gaze roamed over luscious hips, a flat stomach, and the perfect curve of his chest. Not too muscular, but just right, his pectorals tipped with brown nipples. Arjun’s dark eyes and thick hair, curlier after the shower, accented a pouty mouth and strong nose.
He wanted to take Arjun home with him, back to New England, protect him and ease his suffering. Tightening the grip on Arjun’s thighs, he said, “You are not my pet. I am your lover. When you are with me, no one else will ever touch you, and it will be your choice when I do. You will live as a free man.”
“Then I can choose to do this?” Arjun gave a shy smile and began to rock his hips, rubbing the bases of their cocks together. He reached down and grasped both of their hardening lengths and Thomas raised his knees to provide him support.
“Oh, God, Arjun. Yes.” Watching Arjun ride him, his gorgeous body fully, unabashedly displayed, their cocks slick with mingling pre-cum, he finally relaxed, falling into a state of deep, contented arousal. With no desire to hurry the inevitable, he let Arjun take control of their lovemaking, setting the pace and deciding the outcome, wishing to prolong the moment indefinitely.
Arjun set a languid, unhurried pace with his hand and hips, stroking their cocks in a gentle grip as though savoring every second of the dance. Head tilted back, eyes closed, Arjun pinched his hard chocolate nipple and moaned.
Stranded for twenty-four hours in Mumbai, India, contract negotiator, Thomas Barkley searches for a man who can make him forget his pain. When a trip through the red light district leaves him cold, he turns to Madame Eve’s service and finds a shot at redemption—but first, he has to survive it.
Indian male prostitute, Arjun, begged Madame Eve to set him up for one night of real pleasure. He knows better than to expect anything but a brief hiatus from his miserable life. When Thomas showers Arjun with tender and very real affection, his heart begins to ache for the more than a taste of the life he cannot have. Unfortunately, his boss Ranjeet won’t to let him go without a fight.
Amidst a spray of bullets, Thomas must convince Arjun to take a chance on a new life in America before it’s too late for both of them.
