Love’s Prisoner by Austin Blake

Muscular man with sexy abs and suit

Synopsis is here:

“Like Brokeback Mountain meets the military… this one is HOT!”

A sizzling tale of two men whose paths collide in a Vietnam POW camp. Corporal Slater, is an increasingly conflicted soldier tasked with keeping his troops in line while protecting them from the sadistic camp sargeant. Slater’s life changes the moment James Allen Maverick enters the camp.

Maverick’s a deserter — a young soldier gone AWOL, escaping from his unit for reasons we don’t yet understand. But the real question for Slater is, why does he get a jolt of lightning down his spine every time Maverick looks at him?

The tension runs high between the two men, and boils over in Maverick’s prison cell when he calls out Slater for trying to hide who he is. Their passions are real, and the sex is hot… but are these two men making themselves vulnerable to forces beyond their control?

A short part works, this story tells of Slater, a US Corporal and Maverick, an AWOL soldier in the Vietnam War. Maverick is found in the jungle by other soldiers in Slater’s platoon, and there is an immediate connection between the two men. BUT this is the Army, in the 70’s and being gay is not allowed. There is more going on than meets the eye, however, and I think this tale will unfold in a way that makes you want to read them, part works or no.

Its only short, 64 pages, 35 minutes reading time, BUT it packs a punch to the gut, it really does. The Sergeant is a nasty piece of work, and both men know this. Slater volunteers to “interrogate” the prisoner, since that is what Maverick becomes, being a US soldier not wearing his tags wandering around the Saigon jungle. It has a single sexual encounter between the two men, and its a tense encounter that I didn’t think was actually going to happen in this part!

Written from both men’s POV, a chapter each, clearly headed I really want to follow these two men and I hope that I get the chance.

Two lines stands out, and both men think it, almost simultaneously

Who are you…? I found myself wondering.

Who are you, and why does this feel so dangerous?

I cant give it five fangs, simply because its so short, so it gets a four fang rating.

Blurb is here:


“Like Brokeback Mountain meets the military… this one is HOT!” 

An erotic military romance, telling the story of a conflicted army corporal and a handsome young soldier who’s gone rogue…

When passions collide with the call of duty, who’s the real prisoner? 

excerpt

I looked up to see a soldier heading towards us, a concerned look knotting his features behind a pair of black wire-frame sunglasses. His broad mouth was circled by three days’ worth of stubble, and he had dark, longer-than-regulation hair peeking out from an olive military cap. 

This wasn’t the sergeant. His uniform told me he was a corporal – and besides, I could tell with a glance that this man was too smart, and not cruel enough, to be the Mayfield these soldiers had described. But something in the corporal’s demeanor caught my attention. 

This man didn’t demand respect, he commanded it, from the strong, chiseled cut of his jawline down to the way he carried himself. 

And as he pulled off his sunglasses to get a better look at me, a powerful force stopped me in my tracks. 

His eyes were like fire-green emeralds that burned into the core of my being and set me ablaze from the inside out. I caught his gaze and held it, though the catalytic energy of our connection sent a flush crawling up my cheeks. I’d never felt anything like this, and I was powerless to resist it. The world around us seemed to drop away into a void, and nothing existed but the two of us. 

My bottom lip dropped open as I stared at him, and I instantly felt a raw, pure, sexual urge coursing through my veins. Part of me knew he was unlike any man I’d ever seen before; another part of me felt like I’d known him my whole life. 

This nameless man had a hold over my body, with a grip like iron, and in that moment I knew I’d never be the same. 

He squinted into my face. “You speak English?” 

I felt compelled to answer him – would have told him anything he wanted to know – but I was too tongue-tied to speak, too swept up by this strange mix of danger and arousal. I could only stand there, staring mutely, as my world turned upside-down. 

Who are you…? I found myself wondering. 

Who are you, and why does this feel so dangerous?
