Arjun Mukesh and Thomas Barkley are two characters from my novella, Lover Enslaved: 24 Hours in Mumbai. The book is in Decadent Publishing’s fabulous 1 Night Stand series. The two are brought together by Madame Eve, the super-secret love match maker.
Arjun is a prostitute and doesn’t see a way out of his current life in Mumbai, India. Thomas is an American businessman who travels the world for work. So it’s safe to say he’s seen plenty of nooks and crannies and Mumbai is just another stop for him.
Before the night is over, Thomas is ready to drag Arjun away from India and back home with him! But first he has to convince Arjun he can have another life!
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 Mukesh, 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.
“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.
