Quiet Side Characters Who Turn Into Main Love Interests – Bradley Coming Soon!

If you’ve read many of my books, you’ve probably figured out that I like side characters. Sometimes they show up as main characters later in the current series and sometimes it takes me a while to figure out where they belong, but they’re so much fun to write about.

In the Romance & Revolutions series there are a few fun side characters that need a story. Simon is one of them. He was cagey at first and didn’t like sharing personal things about himself, but as I started writing Bradley’s book, he opened up.

So…what do we know about Simon?

From the short scenes where he’s shown up in so far in the Romance & Revolutions series, we know a few things about Simon:
-He loves driving his brother absolutely nuts.
-He knows where the good porn is online.
-He seems to be vanilla.
-Nothing the guys do seems to shock him.

So that has to add up to an alpha who’s more than just meets the eye—because Austin should shock anyone who’s as boring as Simon appears to be.

But there are some things we don’t know yet:
-How does he know where the good porn is hidden?
-Why isn’t he shocked by the pool party?
-Is he single?
-Why isn’t he shocked by the group of submissive omegas?
-Does he really have a tattoo on his…?
-What’s his position on snarky omega subs that clearly need a spanking and some ground rules?

I can’t wait for you guys to get to know more about Simon. At first he’s really not sure how he feels about Bradley, but by the middle of the book, he starts to wonder if “asshole” can actually be a term of endearment. He’s the perfect match to Bradley in some unexpected ways and his reaction to their drunk scene in this book is hysterical (FYI they’ve gotten into some strong moonshine).

Why Sexy Men in Lace? Leashes and Lace Box Sets are HERE

Why sexy men in lace? Tumblr, of course.

I’ll admit to being so social media inept that I had to have a friend help me set up Tumblr, and since she helped me find some sweet, sexy men in lace, I will forever be grateful.

A lot of the inspiration for the Leashes & Lace series came from one guy who shared a lot of different styles of pictures and sides of himself. There were some sweet, some sexy, but there was always something beautiful about them. So the sweet side came out in subs like Wesley, and the sassy, confident sides came out in subs like Eli.

I no longer have my original inspiration images or links but check out these two beautiful shots I found on Instagram. Sweet boys and hints of lace!

They’re all so unique and so much fun to write about that when I started to box up the series, I knew I wanted to add fun bonus material. The boxed sets of the Leashes & Lace books have a variety of bonus scenes that range from cute to off-the-charts hot.

Books 1-3 are in the first set and came out on Friday. Eli has a fun scene with some new characters that I’m pretty sure you guys are going to want to know more about and Wilder has a sweet surprise for Lane.

How a Real Life Town and College Inspired The Setting For Three Series

There have always been certain places in my life that I just felt like I belonged…that it was where I was supposed to be. I always knew I would move back to North Carolina, no matter how many places I moved to in the meantime. But the first place I knew was a space I’d return to was Williamsburg, Virginia.

Even as a young teenager, the first time I saw the campus of William & Mary I knew that was where I wanted to be. So it probably won’t surprise you that when I started imagining a college for my guys where they could learn to be themselves and be happy, I always pictured that campus in my head.

I’ve taken a lot of liberties with the town and the surrounding area, but it’s the feel of the college and the way the town spreads out around it that I love and wanted to give to my guys.

I got a chance this week to walk through Williamsburg and the college again, this time showing it to my teenage kids, and that feeling came rushing back. It was wonderful getting to soak up that feeling again, even if my kids don’t really understand. However, they humored me and we had a great time so I have no complaints.

But as we walked around the mostly deserted campus, I couldn’t help but picture how my guys would look there…Kevin running across campus because he was late or Bryan hiding out between some of the buildings just because he needed a break…and Cody wandering between the buildings with his head in the clouds.

They’re all so very real to me, and I can’t help but think that some of that realness is because I’ve always imagined them in one of my favorite places.

Pictures in this post are from my recent trip to campus, and although I’ve taken a lot of liberties with the town, I hope you enjoy seeing where I imagine them wandering around.

Avery and Destin are here!

Our sweet, can-handle-anything Avery is finally here. The Only Way to Dream is live and Avery and his funny guys are hilarious together. Avery has never met anyone like Destin and has never dated anyone like Ray, but he’s drawn to both of them.

Destin throws himself into everything and has a list of things he wants to explore. The Only Way to Dream has age play (no diapers) and puppy play. If it were up to Destin, he’d have done nothing but drag both of them to bed, but Avery and Ray are making sure they keep their boy safe…even from himself.

Keep an eye out for some fun cameos, and let me know what you think of Destin’s roommate. I think he needs a book too.

Detective Avery is here!

The Only Way to Dream will go live this Friday and is up for pre-order. Not only are you going to find out more about Ray, one of the mechanics in The Only Way to Love, you’re finally going to get to know our sexy Detective Avery.

Avery first showed up with the guys from the Loving series (available on this site and on Smashwords), and since then, he’s popped in and out but didn’t get chatty until recently. Getting to know Avery has been wonderful, but seeing how he interacts with the sexy, teasing Ray and the flirty, sweet Destin is so cute.

Avery and Ray are the perfect balance to each other and to Destin’s utter exuberance with the way he throws himself at life. For those of you who remember Jay from Untouched, Destin grew up in the same community, so he sees things a little differently. However, instead of being nervous about the real world, Destin loves it.

If you’re curious check out the first chapter of The Only Way to Dream.

Embracing Love Audiobook Ready for Listening!

The audiobook for Embracing Love is now live. It took a bit longer than I thought it would, but the rest of the story for Cody and his sweet Doms is now out.

Embracing Faith and Embracing Love are about Cody, Jameson, and Ford, three men who are all very different but perfect for each other. If you haven’t read the story of Cody, with his Daddy Ford, and the confused professor Jameson the audiobooks are the perfect way to enjoy it.

It will also give you something fun to enjoy until The Only Way to Dream comes out on the 22nd and you get to see what it takes for Detective Avery to finally fall head-over-heels in love. There will be more out about Detective Avery and his men this weekend, so keep an eye out.
