A timeless love as dangerous as the sea....For Captain Harry Thompson, the command of the prison transport ship HMS Banshee is his opportunity to prove his worth, working-class origins be damned. But his criminal attraction to his upper-crust First Lieutenant, Garnet Littleton, threatens to overturn all he’s ever worked for.Lust quickly proves to be the least of his problems, however. The deadly combination of typhus, rioting convicts, and a monstrous storm destroys his prospects...and shipwrecks him and Garnet on their own private island. After months of solitary paradise, the journey back to civilization -- surviving mutineers, exposure, and desertion -- is the ultimate test of their feelings for each other.These two very different men each record their story for an unfathomable future in which the tale of their love -- a love punishable by death in their own time -- can finally be told. Today, dear reader, it is at last safe for you to hear it all.Note: This is a revised, stand-alone edition of the story originally published in the Hidden Conflict anthology in 2009.

I’m not a ...

A nice historical forbidden love story written in alternating POVs. Nothing smutty, but they were castaways for a while, hence 'Blessed Isle'. Just like Hsin and Boyd, they HEA'd in South America!. As best I can tell, this is the only m/m ebook available at my library which is how i came to read...

While reading Blessed Isle by Alex Beecroft, I felt like I was reading poetry. Simply put, I wallowed in the beauty of this author's prose, evocative imagery, sharply defined characterizations, and a plot that flirted and lured me to keep turning pages. Blessed Isle is written in a dialogic epistol...
