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.
