Catnip, Rosemary, Rage and Time, The Newest M/M Release by Author Pablo Michaels!
"Catnip, Rosemary, Rage and Time", by author Pablo Michaels is now available in e-book! This M/M romance is not one you want to miss the pleasure of reading!
“Catnip, Rosemary, Rage and Time” summarizes Billie Blake and Glenn Talbot’s celebration of their tenth anniversary on a cruise to Alaska. With most of the passengers older than them they soon discover their friendly cabin steward, a hunky waiter, and an appealing bartender. Paul and Linda Anderson play a cat and mouse game with Billie to help them become their fall guy for an irregular diamond operation. The action begins with a Friends of Dorothy Party in the Greek Lounge at midnight the first day of the cruise. Romance, mystery, comedy, and erotica occur from port to port in Victoria to the Yukon and back to San Francisco.
“Something is going to happen,” Billie said passionately.
“You’re damn right;” Glenn answered seductively, “you’re going to get laid four times a day on this cruise!”
They stood on the top deck, watching the skyline of San Francisco diminish, as the ship sailed under the ascending span of the Golden Gate Bridge.
“It always makes me sad to leave San Francisco,” Billie lamented.
“It’s because you have to say good bye to all the men you’ve coveted for so many years,” Glenn quipped.
Billie, two years older than Glenn at fifty-four, constantly, lusted after his lover, who stood six feet tall with dark brown hair, a thick mustache, and bushy eyebrows streaked with gray. He loved his posture, smooth, easy and his social grace at initiating conversation. He blatantly observed him, wanting him and liking what they enjoyed together. Billie knew Glenn could be mysterious, allowing others to see him, sometimes holding back what he felt.
Glenn teased him about how he carried himself as big as a bull, true to his Zodiac sign, a Taurus, although shorter and walking with a limp, a direct contrast to Glenn’s easy going nature. He often told him he appreciated his soft spoken voice, but also knew he could argue strong opinions. He usually ignored his psychic premonitions, dismissing them as coincidences. Billie’s mustache and short, receding, light brown hair, with his hairy chest attracted Glenn immensely, but his middle leg, the big one, had hooked him the most. His interest intensified when Billie acted like a child, proclaiming, “Life should be fun, so let’s live and party.”
Billie’s eyes caught a roving, intense stare from a stylish dressed, blonde woman with piercing, blue eyes. He took note of her sexy male companion, sporting a dark brown goatee and thick eyebrows, accentuated by large, brown eyes. Billie speculated they were in their fifties, and could pass as models in their younger years. Billie nervously tried to avoid her stare, forcing himself to look away. He could not endure the potency of the woman’s glaring.
Glenn asked, “What’s the matter? Isn’t having sex four times a day enough?”
“No, it’s not that,” Billie responded. “That blonde woman over there with that too handsome of a man is giving me the eye.”
“Anyone in their right mind would stare at you, my handsome hunk.”
“No, something is going to happen with that woman.”
Glenn rolled his eyes in disbelief, saying, “Look at that flashy diamond necklace draped around her neck, though.”
“If they’re real, they must be very expensive,” Billie commented more calmly.
The woman’s piercing eyes still focused on Billie.
“Why does she keep staring at me?”
A gust of wind whipped across the upper deck. The woman’s long blonde hair blew across her face. She quickly brushed her hair out of her eyes with her hand. Once again, she stood staring at Billie, occasionally whispering to her male companion. Then, she turned away.
