The Pride of the Caribbean is a cruise ship unlike any other. Paranormals working on board the enchanted ship hide in plain sight, under the benevolent protection of a demigod captain and his fairy husband.
And this is a shipboard romance unlike any other.
Josh Gilbert’s well-meaning family booked a gay-friendly cruise for Christmas in order to find Josh a boyfriend. Hoping to escape the constant parade of bachelors—and the collapsible fishing rod dangling mistletoe his mom keeps in her purse—Josh takes solace in a growing friendship with the ship’s photographer, Nathan. Though Josh is falling for Nathan, he worries it will never be more than a shipboard fling.
Nathan recently became aware of his incubus heritage and has finally learned how to control his demon side. But Josh has awakened more than just the demon’s need for orgasms—Josh has awakened Nathan’s heart. What’s developing between them is the real thing, but can Josh ever accept Nathan’s promiscuous past… and love a sex demon?
Amid lush tropical settings, family hilarity, holiday costume parties, sexy snorkeling adventures, gingerbread martinis, and mythical creatures, will Josh get his Christmas wish and finally find the true love he’s wanted for so long?
Welcome aboard The Pride of the Caribbean. The most exciting and friendly family oriented gay cruise ship. Where lonely gay men and women can hopefully find that one special person. Well that is the hope of Josh Gilbert's family when they secretly planned this Christmas cruise.
Josh Gilbert, to say the least, has been very unlucky when it comes to finding love. Add to the fact that he is very uncomfortable with his overall appearance doesn't help matters. So with the help of his very loud and somewhat annoying family poor Josh is in for a long week abroad.
Nathan Bradshaw the shipboard photographer has lived a life that not too people would understand but has left black marks on his past. Because of the person that he is, he has lost not only family but a big part of himself. Distant to a life of loneliness changes the instant he sees Josh.
These two characters were instantly lovable to me. A sinfully sexy man draw to an average looking man made this love story even more appealing to me. Then to make it even more enjoyable the author writes a little paranormal into their love story.
Deanna Wadsworth's story telling of The Boyfriend Cruise, is a heartfelt tale of love that sees what's inside of the person and less of what's on the outside. It's the understanding that each person comes with their own insecurities no matter what they may show on the outside and even a little magic can go a long way.
