Free Me by Brita Addams

Dr. Bryan Newcastle needs a respite from his grueling medical practice. He's looking for someone to free his mind and his body, to take him to unexplored sexual heights. So on impulse, he plunks down his credit card and commits himself to a Gay BDSM cruise he hopes will answer his prayers.

Dom Phil Sanderson is looking for a vacation sub. With a keycard slid across the lunch table, Bryan is plunged into Phil's decadent world, where sexual submission is only the beginning. Phil brings his willing sub to new heights, but soon realizes seven days just isn't enough for either of them.

Will Bryan and Phil be able to return to their former lives, or has the journey to Bryan's sexual freedom only begun? 


Exclusive Excerpt…

Twenty minutes after they’d stepped into the waiting area, they were escorted to a square table, again by the large, arched windows at the back of the ship. The lights from the decks outside reflected off the glassy water, making the atmosphere for this, their first dinner together, even more pleasant and far different than the view they’d had during lunch.

The sommelier came by and offered a short dissertation on the fine wines available onboard. Phil ordered a Chateau Petrus merlot. “It’ll go beautifully with our Wellington,” he said, as he smiled at Bryan.

The server waited his turn and took their order with efficiency. When they were again alone, Phil asked, “What really brought you on this cruise, Bryan? What are you looking for?”

Though Bryan appreciated the question, how was he to answer without feeling foolish?

Phil arched an eyebrow and smiled, exuding confidence and a true joy for life.

What was that old clich√© about the best defense is a good offense? As Bryan sipped his wine, he asked, “What are you looking for?”

This verbal dance continued for several minutes. The server brought their meal of Beef Wellington, Lyonnais potatoes, and a vegetable medley, all arranged beautifully on fine china plates.

Bryan took in the elegance of the setting around them as he sipped his wine. Phil cut a sizable bite of his Wellington and, with his mouth full, he said, “I’m looking for a vacation sub.”

Bryan nearly choked on his wine. “A submissive?”

“Yes, have you heard of such things?”

Bryan leaned across the table and in a whisper said, “Of course I have, but you don’t look like the…the Dom type.”

“And what does the ‘Dom type’ look like?”

“I guess I’d expect leather.”

Phil laughed. “I have leather, but that alone doesn’t make me a Dom.”

Bryan’s mind scattered with a million possibilities and his cock stirred, as the cruise took on an entirely different outlook. “I realize that.”

“Do you know anything about the lifestyle?”


“Really? How interested? A devotee?”

“In thought.” Why was he telling Phil this stuff? He’d never told a soul, though he’d hinted to Del, only to be shot down.

“What keeps you from delving deeper?”

Bryan cut a butter-soft piece of Wellington. “The unknown, I suppose. I’ve read a lot, but when I go out, I worry about running into someone I know.”

“Do you know anyone on board?”

Bryan put the bite in his mouth and savored the liver pate, mushroom and onion held in place by the flaky pastry. He was sure his eyes rolled back in his head as he enjoyed the tender beef.

With his mouth full, he said, “No, I don’t.”

As he watched Phil enjoy his meal, Bryan wondered if it could possibly be this easy. Could he meet someone and, bam, there went any worry over how to spend the next seven days? Pragmatism had no place on this cruise. Whatever happened, he could explore to his heart’s content and not fear he’d ever see Phil again.

They finished the meal and talked more about Bryan’s wants and needs over another glass of wine. Phil sat back, looking relaxed. With his eyes riveted on Bryan’s, he reached into his inside coat pocket with an ease that could only come from years of practice, brought his keycard out, and slid it across the table toward Bryan.

“Go to my room, and I’ll get there when I get there.”

Bryan looked at the card, then at Phil.

  1. I would sign up, it sounds interesting, but I've enough books to keep me busy for a good long while, and don't want to take the chance from someone else.

    But I wanted to tell Brita it sounds great :D

  2. Good morning everyone in Amara's world. So happy to be here again.

    Hi Alex. Thank you for the nice words. I appreciate it.

    I'll pop back later, Amara! Hugs.

  3. Interesting.
    So what inspired you to write your first gay contemporary romance, Brita? Just curious.
    The excerpt is very good!

  4. Great excerpt, sounds interesting.

    BTW, I noticed the "Postcards from Paradise" tag on the cover. Is this part of a group of stories? I thought I saw the same tag on LA Witts Getting off the ground maybe? Or am a crazy?

    Anyway, congrats on the new book and please count me in on the giveaway.

  10. Oh and my email is lnxam97 at gmail dot com

  11. Thanks for making this a world wide experience. I love Britas work

  12. Wow! I checked back and found all the wonderful comments.

    I'll try to answer questions. David, I wrote this because a good friend "forced" me to do it. LOL. Bryl Tyne told me Amber Allure had an open call for their Postcards From Paradise sub call and he thought I should sub to it. I've actually written m/m and menage before, just not contemporary.

    My husband, daughter and I actually went on a cruise for my birthday and having been on many cruises before, I thought it worked, using what I knew as the background. I've never written contemporary before and actually found the experience kind of liberating, able to use present day language, etc.
    I've written the sequel to Free Me, In His Arms, and it will be out on August 7. I've loved doing something new.

    Hi Margie. Thanks.

    Wyndslash, Jason, June M., Syvia, Melora and Comfort, thanks so much. Comfort, that's a sweet thing to say. I love to hear from readers!
