Lord James Mayhew, the Earl of Dalton, lost his lover and loyal employee when the man, John Wilshaw, left without explanation months ago. Now moving on and starting up his new venture as a horse breeder, James finds himself attracted to his sister’s brother-in-law, Lord Lucas Marsden.
Lucas lost his right eye and left leg years before in the Battle of Waterloo and has since secluded himself from Society. He’s also attracted to the handsome Earl of Dalton. When his sister-in-law sets up Lucas to help James with his venture, Lucas realises giving into desires is much simpler than he thought.
John Wilshaw returns to James’s life, ready to beg his ex-lover and explain the hidden past that took him away. However, unbeknownst to him, John also brings danger that could get the three of them killed. In addition, the already forbidden love between two men escalates into something more shocking to a society will not accept love between men.
James sat on his bed and waved them to sit at the settee in front of the French doors which opened onto his balcony. “Sit down. Now are you going to talk me out of this? I think it highly unfair, two against one.”
“No.” Lucas shook his head. “There is another matter. Something that has been brewing between the three of us and something that may help resolve our feelings on the matter.”
James frowned. “This sounds ominous.”
“Not so.” Lucas shook his head. He nodded at John. “Sit down John and stop gaping.” He went and quickly locked the door so that the three of them would not be disturbed.
James chuckled when he saw John follow Lucas’s directions. That was something he had never been able to do with John. Lucas always exuded an aura of strength. He was just...just Lucas. Lord, he loved the man.
James cleared his throat. “So, Luc, want to tell me what has you suddenly barking orders to both John and I?”
Lucas smirked. “Of course. Now, James, I do not think you realise quite how important this moment of reckoning is. John and I have been forced together for this past week caring for you and that was certainly no bad thing for either of us.”
John’s face turned a bit red and he started to fiddle with his fingers.
“But James,” Lucas continued after glancing at John for a moment. “I know that you still have strong feelings for John. Whether or not it is still love that is entirely up to you. However, I think you need to know that there is a spark of connection between John and I which has been increasing throughout the week. It is not just because I fucked him once a few years ago. Something I unfortunately still do not quite recall, I am loathe to admit.”
James frowned, glancing between the two men who together held his heart. His heart started to beat faster. He had never imagined that such a thing could happen for him and he hated the feeling of being torn between the two men, if only for a few days. He had no clue what it would feel like a month from now, a year or a decade. James was quite certain it would feel horrible, though.
“What?” James continued frowning. “Have the two of you...?”
“No, we have not been intimate,” John blurted out.
Lucas cleared his throat. It was quickly evident that he was leader –the alpha—of the three men.
“I have seen lovers with a soul-deep connection involved in a ménage a trois, a three-way relationship as you no doubt know,” Lucas continued. “They were all happy and in love and from last I heard are still in such an arrangement. However, the two such ménages are one woman between two men. The point is though, they are all very happy. They all love each other and it is not a case of separate relationships. I would like to think that there is a possibility for the three of us.”
James frowned again.
“You mean you, John and me, Luc? Together as lovers?” murmured James.
“Of course,” Lucas replied. “I do not see why not. You and I love each other. You and James love each other. There is a connection between John and myself.”
“And if it does not work I lose you both,” James snapped.
“I...Lucas and I...” John spoke stiltedly. “Luc is very beautiful and unlike Luc I remember our one night together...I...I want...”
James smiled at John. He found it touching that the man who was always so strong and dominant with him was unsure and willingly submissive with Lucas. It was definitely all part of Lucas’s pure male power.
“You want Luc,” James said softly, “I cannot blame you for that, John. I love him very much. I–I still love you and the thought of you together makes me hard.”
“I still love you, too, James,” John whispered. “But with Luc, it is much like when I met you. The same sparks and the need and the...”
“The love.” James smiled. “It is love at first sight, John.”
Lucas smiled kindly. He placed his hand on John’s shoulder and squeezed gently. “Our earl is a very romantic man, but I do think that he has the right idea.”
“I want to see you kiss,” James announced boldly.
Lucas and John simply stared at him.
“Kiss, damn it,” James ordered, “I want to see it.”
Lucas grinned. “Does that mean you want to try to be a committed ménage?”
“I fear losing you both if we do, but I fear I lose you both, you especially, Lucas, if we do not try,” James replied softly. He nodded. “Yes, I want this and I want this to work.”
“I would like this to work too,” John said softly. “I think we are what each other all need in different ways. It feels right.”
“Damn right.” Lucas grinned.
“So fucking kiss and seal the deal!” James all but roared impatiently at this point.
“As our man wishes,” Lucas murmured. He hauled John onto his lap. There was not a lot of difference in their build or mass, but Lucas certainly had more muscles. “To us, John.”
“To us,” whispered John.
Lucas was the one to tip his head back and moan. “Fucking Christ, fuck yes, James!” He moaned, thrusting his hips slowly in James’s palm.
James watched as pre-cum began to ooze from Lucas’s cock. His mouth began to water more. Then he could not stop himself. The carriage was cramped but where there was a will James had a way. He got to his knees and angled himself so that the long, thick cock was right near to his mouth.
Lucas looked down at James with heated eyes. “Do it,” he commanded James hungrily. “Suck me. Take all of me into your mouth.”
“Need to taste you,” James whimpered, holding Lucas’s shaft as he sucked the tip into his mouth.
“That’s it.” Lucas moved his hips, threading his fingers through James’s thick hair. “Fuck yes! You are my cocksucker now, James.”
James hummed around Lucas’s cock. He took the length of Lucas’s shaft into his mouth, the head of the cock hitting the back of James’s throat and almost making him gag. Continuing, James stroked Lucas’s faster and sucked harder. He enjoyed the taste of Lucas’s cum, salty and tangy with just a hint of sourness.
“Stroke your own cock,” Lucas ordered. “I want you to come when I come.”
James moaned again. He was all but dizzy with the bliss. He may be sucking the man’s dick but he knew that he could fall in love with man. In fact, James knew he had already started falling. Yet, he was unsure of what to think of that because he still had feelings for John. Yet right here in the carriage, Lucas had all but laid claim on him too.
“Mm, that’s it,” Lucas moaned, flexing his hips once more. “Almost there. Fuck, yes!”
James focused on Lucas and that moment. He worked Lucas’s cock with one hand and his mouth while stroking himself with his free hand. He was only vaguely aware when he heard Lucas warning him of the impending climax.
James swallowed the moment he felt the splash of hot seed hitting the back of his throat. He sucked down every drop of seed. The moment Lucas finished his climax, James came hard with his head nestled in Lucas’s groin. He felt his balls tight against his body and his seed spurt relentlessly on the plush floor of the carriage. Lucas rubbed his back as he came. Lucas murmured indecipherable, sweet words. James moaned, squeezing his cock as the flow of seed stopped and he began to soften.
All that was left was the heavy breathing for both men as the carriage continued to rattle down.
Lucas cupped James’s face in his hands. “You are so fucking sexy, James. Next time I want to fuck you hard, long and hard.”
“Please,” James croaked.
“You are a dangerous man, James.”
“Me?” James frowned up at his lover.
“Indeed, you, Lord James,” Lucas said softly. “I have not been with another man for years. There is much more between us.”
James rested his head on Lucas’s knee. Heexhaled slowly. “There is much between us. Yet, I have not been with a man in over a year either.”
“Why would someone as gorgeous as you be alone, my lord?”
James shook his head. “That is a story for another time.”
“A matter of the heart?”
“Yes, exactly that,” James agreed.
He resumed his seat, unsure if he should cuddle into Lucas. He was not certain if Lucas would like that. They still had their cocks out, though spent and leaving them thoroughly sated.
James cleared his throat. “You are handsome, too, Lucas. You say your scars are ugly. Despite that fact one cannot avoid seeing them, they are not in any way hideous. With or without them, you are a very handsome man, a man that I like immensely.”
“I will allow you to have your opinions,” Lucas said wryly, “as long as you allow me to have my own.”
“Very well.” James nodded. “In between all our business I will simply have to convince you to see yourself as I see you.”
“You are stubborn. I am starting to think that it may be a family resemblance.”
“Please do not talk of our siblings after I just sucked your cock, Luc.”
James looked between them. Neither of them had bothered to fix their trousers yet, and their cocks still hung out.
He slowly reached over and took James’s cock in his hand, as though inspecting it critically. “I like men who can come just from sucking,” Lucas whispered in James’s ear. “I like to think it shows true passion”
James moaned softly. “Your cock is perfection.”
Once again, Lucas chuckled. “Well some part of me has to be. Though I have to say, your cock is perfect too.” He made a point of fingering the foreskin and sensitive head, once again making James moan softly. “And so damn passionate.”
Lucas decided in that moment that James was a dream lover—all passion, beauty, strength and submission. He could not wait to fuck the man. Hopefully, he did not have to wait too long.
Reluctantly, they both tidied themselves up though James leaned in against Lucas. Lucas suspected the man wanted to cuddle. Lucas was not about to argue and secretly decided that it was adorable.
“There is a lot of perfection with you, Lucas,” James said softly. “One just needs to look beyond the physical.” He slowly rubbed Lucas’s chest.
“Ah, I think I understand now.” Lucas’s voice was warm and gentle as he whispered against James’s lips. “It is a Mayhew trait.” He kissed the man gently. “The Mayhews are romantic.”
I’m just your average Aussie sci-fi nerd and scientist. I didn’t start writing stories until I was doing my Honours research as my escape from work. By day I do all things science and by night, or when I’m procrastinating about science, I’m dreaming up all manner of scenarios and characters in my head. I enjoy just about any genre, although all of my earlier stories/day dreams will never see the light of day! I’ve never thought of myself as a writer, but as a scientist I have to write fact, so now I like to think that in writing fiction I’m making everything equal.
