Guest Post – Deanna Wadsworth and “The Boyfriend Cruise”
Deanna Wadsworth and I have taken part in several Pride events in the past few years together and she is one of my favorite people! So when she asked if she could do a guest post on my blog to promote her latest release of course I said yes.
I haven’t read “The Boyfriend Cruise” but she consistently writes books that are both funny and steamy, so I hope you’ll take the time to read her post and check out her new novel!
Thank you for hosting me, Brigham! I’ve brought along a super special, extra sexy scene to share with your fans.
THE BOYFRIEND CRUISE is the first Pride of the Caribbean Getaway, and a must read for paranormal and contemporary readers. Imagine a gay-friendly cruise ship where paranormals hide in plain sight!
Think LOVE BOAT meets SUPERNATURAL with some steamy love!
And of course a happily ever after!
THE BOYFRIEND CRUISE
The Pride of the Caribbean is a cruise ship unlike any other. Paranormals working on board the enchanted ship hide in plain sight, under the benevolent protection of a demigod captain and his fairy husband.
And this is a shipboard romance unlike any other.
Josh Gilbert’s well-meaning family booked a gay-friendly cruise for Christmas in order to find Josh a boyfriend. Hoping to escape the constant parade of bachelors—and the collapsible fishing rod dangling mistletoe his mom keeps in her purse—Josh takes solace in a growing friendship with the ship’s photographer, Nathan. Though Josh is falling for Nathan, he worries it will never be more than a shipboard fling.
Nathan recently became aware of his incubus heritage and has finally learned how to control his demon side. But Josh has awakened more than just the demon’s need for orgasms—Josh has awakened Nathan’s heart. What’s developing between them is the real thing, but can Josh ever accept Nathan’s promiscuous past… and love a sex demon?
Amid lush tropical settings, family hilarity, holiday costume parties, sexy snorkeling adventures, gingerbread martinis, and mythical creatures, will Josh get his Christmas wish and finally find the true love he’s wanted for so long?
“Wanna come back to my room? Aaron’s at the costume party… and, well….” Josh left it hanging.
Squeezing his hand, Nathan grinned. “I’d love to.”
Innocent man, indeed.
Nathan hadn’t expected Josh to be so bold, especially without Nathan’s incubus lure in play. But he held his demon in check. Might cause an unfixable scandal if Nathan followed through with the scene playing out in his mind right there in the bar…. Nathan dropping to his knees to drink the delicious nectar from Josh’s cock, milking him with his tongue and mouth until the heady power of the man’s orgasm fueled Nathan’s demon soul.
Nothing better than the high of draining orgasm after orgasm from a man. The high he’d get from Josh’s orgasm would be sweet, because willing orgasms had a power unlike any other.
Anxious and ready to feed, Nathan set down his empty glass. “Ready to go?”
The scent of Josh’s hunger spiked, and Nathan caught his breath.
“Yup.” Josh nodded, and they left the lounge, hand in hand.
Josh had him so off-kilter, Nathan hoped he could contain his energy and keep himself from coming when they had sex. The power might frighten Josh, but it would also turn all the fairies on board and anybody nearby into sex-crazed fiends.
No, Nathan would have to make sure Josh came first. The power from Josh’s orgasm would give Nathan the strength to think clearly—an ability he seemed to have lost in Josh’s presence.
“I’ve never done this before,” Josh said. “Invite a stranger back to my room.”
Nathan gave Josh’s hand a gentle, reassuring squeeze. “We don’t have to,” he heard himself say, and his demon side screamed in protest.
Why am I giving the guy an out?
Josh faced him, wide-eyed and cheeks flushed. “I want to. If you do?”
Relieved, Nathan stepped closer, their chests all but touching. He kissed Josh on the lips. Though a tiny kiss, something electric and shimmering went throughout Nathan’s entire body. His power thrummed in want, and for the first time in all his life, he had a sudden desire to bite.
Not like a blood thing, but he wanted Josh so much, his predatory instincts were on high alert. He wanted to make this man his. To mark him with love bites, taste his release, come deep inside him….
Josh closed his eyes and held very still, as if poised for another kiss.
“Does that answer your question?” Nathan whispered.
“Uh-huh,” he said, nodding, then slowly opening his eyes.
Still holding his hand, Nathan cinched his other arm around Josh’s waist and pulled him close. His warm body pressed to Nathan’s was sheer nirvana.
Josh placed his free hand on Nathan’s chest. “I’ve never done this before.”
Nathan dipped his head close to his ear. “Then let’s make it special,” he whispered, leaving a tiny kiss below his lobe and delighting in the full-body shiver he got out of Josh. Nathan could taste Josh’s desire, like the rich, mouthwatering aroma of fresh-baked cookies. His stomach all but growled for Josh’s orgasm. Josh’s wanting gave Nathan a renewed strength.
If Nathan felt stronger just from Josh’s desire, how much would Josh’s essence strengthen him?
When Nathan kissed Josh, the man’s pheromones intensified even more. Eager, Nathan kissed him deeper, drawing on the power of Josh’s unchecked desire. While he had not inherited demon immortality or the need to drink blood, his need to bring others to orgasm was a vital part of his being.
If it just so happened to be pleasurable for both parties, all the better.
After all, what was the whole point of being on this rock if you didn’t want to enjoy it? Traveling and soaking up the riches of life had been one of the driving reasons for Nathan to leave home on his eighteenth birthday.
That and all the tension his demon had caused within his family.
Nathan withdrew, catching his breath. Not wanting his past to cloud his future tonight, he ran the back of his hand across Josh’s cheek. He needed to slow down before he took Josh right in the hallway.
“Oh my,” Josh whispered, his eyes fluttering open.
