Matt stared at the next tile. This one had a man, his arms chained above his head, a masked man between his knees. The kneeling man had what seemed to be a phallus protruding from his mask. Two men stood to either side, holding ropes that attached to the standing person’s ankles.
Matt glanced at tile after tile. Each one showed varying images of people in bondage, some showed figures being disciplined, yet others depicted various carnal acts that had Matt’s blood swirling heatedly through his veins, his cock swelling with interest.
The sound of footsteps approaching along the passageway had Matt leaping backwards away from the wall, straightening his shirt, fingers tugging at the knot of his tie. He pulled his jacket around himself, trying to disguise the evidence of his excitement. He took several steps towards the oncoming footsteps. A man came into view, tall and slender, walking swiftly towards him. There was something unusual about him but before Matt could think about it the man was speaking.
“There you are.” He reached out for Matt, fingers closing hard around one of his wrists before Matt could think to move away. Matt stared at the man, eyes wide, as he suddenly turned and started back along the passageway, almost towing Matt behind him. Matt stumbled along behind for a couple of steps before he pulled back as hard as he could.
“What? Who are you? And where are you taking me? And man, let go of my hand! If you just point me in the direction of the exit, I’ll see myself out.”
There is something about the love of men for men that speaks to the heart. Masculinity in passion is more than muscle and attitude. It’s in the mix of hardness and tenderness, the burning gaze and the soft caress. The struggle with expectation to be tough and the need to be vulnerable. There is something about these stories that show men opening–sometimes eagerly, sometimes reluctantly–to love.
For your pleasure, we offer you men who reclaim lost love, men who find themselves in the love of another man, and men who defy oppression for the sake of love. These are stories that show that an ending is not necessarily the end and that softness is not the same as weakness. In all, eleven stories of love and romance between men from ForbiddenFiction’s top authors, including award-winners Julian Keys and Lynn Kelling. To you, our readers, we bring the love.
