The Golden Horizon is captained by one
Nathaniel Collins. These days he is a man to be reckoned
with yet at one time Collins was literally the property of
Captain Thomas Harrison. In those days, Harrison kept
Collins by his side and in his bed on board Harrison’s ship,
the Kestrel. Collins gained the Golden Horizon through
duplicity toward Harrison and vowed to never look back.
Nowadays, Harrison’s constant companion
is Samir even though he still lusts after Collins and dreams
of one day having him back in his bed. At a recent estate
sale while berthed in Barbados, Collins buys house slave
Adlai with his dark skin and blue eyes. The Kestrel and the
Golden Horizon pillage fight and sail across the seas but,
the day will come one way or another when these two captains
will decide their fate with blood shed, perhaps death.
Kestrel on the Horizon follows two
privateer/pirate captains and their male paramour companions
through adventures, villainy and certain violence.
Kestrel on the Horizon is something of an emotional
feast with passion, love, jealousy, lust, evil and more
within these characters. The actions of the characters
match the time period and while there is a romantic element,
they are sometimes hard to sympathize with except for Adlai
yet he too is ‘wooden’ at times. If you’re looking for a
different kind of M/M then Kestrel on the Horizon
is worth checking out but otherwise don’t look for a
fulfilling romance within its pages.
