The Winning Captain

“… He backs me up against a tree, his jet-black eyes never leaving mine. If it was anyone else, I’d be peeing my pants at the hard lines on his face. I hold the cricket ball to my chest as if it will protect me.

When two captains collide, will love be enough or will fear keep them apart?

Best friends, Ashan and Michael, did everything together, until an incident in the locker room after cricket practice. Michael left to study abroad, not returning until five years later.

When they find themselves as opposing cricket captains, whose team will win the match? But more importantly, will Ashan finally admit how he feels about Michael? Or will fear stop him from losing his best friend, the man he loves, forever?

This is an erotic MM romance about sexual awakening and second chances. If you like your men hot and sweaty, and chest to chest, then you’ll love this short, sensual love story.


I’m thrilled to have ‘The Winning Captain’ published in Romance Writers of Australia’s ‘Leather’ anthology. This story was awarded equal second place in the 2020 Spicy Bites competition.
