Crawl in Bed With Troy Carstairs

Crawling Into Bed With Troy Carstairs from Diving in Deep

Important things first, are these sheets silk or cotton?

Cotton. Jake and Cam are too practical for silk, although I really like the idea. I wonder if I could convince them silk could be practical...

What are you wearing?

In deference to your presence, boxers. If you weren't here, I wouldn't bother. My boys like me to be accessible.

What are we snacking on in bed while we read tonight?

*glances furtively at the door* Let me know if you hear Cam coming. He doesn't like food in the bed. *whips a bag of potato chips from under the sheet*

If I open this nightstand drawer, what will I find?

Not much. We keep the toys in the other nightstand. Whatever was in Jake's pockets today, the book Cam's reading. Although...he's been doing some research lately *blushes*

Do you roll up in the blankets like a burrito, or kick the covers off during the night?

Hah! Clearly this is your first time in Cairns. We're in the tropics here, Lee, and the bedroom doesn't have aircon. I don't think we even own covers.

Can I put my cold feet on your calves to warm them up?

Cam: No
*Troy looks at his lover, standing in the doorway, and smiles weakly* Hey. Uh - this is Lee.
*Cam turns his head and calls out* Jake! Troy's inviting strange men into the bed! *glances back at Troy and Lee* Are those chips?
*Troy mutters* Oh, crap.

What are we reading?
Diving in Deep

Cameron is sick of being a stereotypical nerd. In an attempt to "reinvent" himself, he takes three months off for a holiday in Australia--something the old Cameron would never do.

Troy and Jake are in a committed relationship. Co-owners of Sail Away, a water sport and cruising company, their life is about sun, sea and each other.

Neither Troy nor Jake have ever participated in a ménage, but after a day on the water with Cameron, both are fantasizing about sandwiching him between them. Cameron has never been with a man but can't stop thinking about the hot couple, and how they'd look, naked and entwined. When he walks in on them having sex in the underwater observatory, he can't look away--and then they invite him to join in.

Will the old Cameron sink in uncharted territory? Or will the new Cameron find himself diving in deep?


The bell over the door dinged, and Jake glanced up from the computer. Any distraction from the bookkeeping was welcome. He smiled at Troy. Was it that time already?
  “Hey,” his lover said, crossing the room and leaning across the desk. Jake met him halfway, planting a quick, hard kiss on those soft lips. A sharply indrawn breath drew his attention to the man who’d followed Troy into the office.
  “Hey, yourself.” Jake pulled back and nodded to the stranger. “Going to introduce me to your friend?”

Troy half-turned. “Sure. Jake Paulson, Cameron Hall. Cameron came out to the pontoon with us today, and now he wants to get his dive certificate.”
  Jake reached for the drawer where they kept the list of reputable dive instructors. “No problem. We have a list of some excellent dive companies. I’ll make a copy for you.”
  Troy cleared his throat and looked away. “Actually, I said we’d give him the lessons.”
  Jake’s hand froze on the drawer handle. What the hell? “Oh.” He raised an eyebrow, but Troy’s gaze was fixed on the desk. “Okay. Um, what arrangement did you make?”
 They didn’t do certification lessons. He studied the stranger—Cameron. He was kind of gangly and had a very faint tan, probably as a result of the day on the water. His hair was the same shade between blond and brown as Troy’s, but Troy spent so much time outdoors that the sun had streaked his with gold.

Cameron fiddled with his watch. “Troy said you’d work that out.”
  “Did he?” Jake glanced at Troy, who made a sheepish face.
  “Yeah. Uh, I thought he could come out on the boat with the regular day-trippers, and you or I could do his lessons. At a reasonable rate?” The questioning lift to his last sentence was accompanied by his puppy-dog look, the one Jake could never resist.
  His gaze met Troy’s mocha-latte colored eyes, and his stomach did its usual flip. He sighed. “Sure. Sit down, Cameron, and we’ll work something out.”
  Troy grinned, shooting him a grateful look, and the hairs on the back of Jake’s neck stood on end. Why did this matter so much to Troy? He turned his attention back to Cameron as the man sat in one of the visitor’s chairs. Cameron’s hazel eyes gazed back at him.
  “So, I’ll leave you two to it.” Troy put a hand on Cameron’s shoulder and squeezed, and a shock ran down Jake’s spine. Troy was a hands-on person, but…His lover smiled at him and he forced himself to smile back. He was being ridiculous. He had no reason to be jealous. Troy was being nice to a tourist, that was all.

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
