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.

If you just want the bonus shorts on their own, The Models will be out on June 26th and is a compilation of just the bonus scenes. (Note: The bonus short is not on Kindle Unlimited)

The box set for Book 4-6 will also be out on June 26th if you want to finish your collection off.

Check out the new sets (and bonus material!) and let me know if you like my ideas for what comes next in that part of my world.
Share in the comments: Who is your favorite pairing from the Leashes and Lace series? Who would you love to read more about?
March is going to be jam-packed with cute subs and tender Doms. To start with, the next book in the Leashes & Lace series, Wesley, will be out this Friday. Wesley spent his teenage years suffering from agoraphobia and depression, but he hasn’t let that stop him.
Now that he’s conquered everything that’s held him back, what he wants most of all is to be a full model at Leashes & Lace, but that’s not as easy as he hoped it would be. His first photo shoot ends up being right in the middle of Eli and Roman’s insanity, and his nerves just can’t take the crazy.
But then comes the calm and sexy photographer Tyler…
Tyler is the photographer that usually works with the pups, primarily because he’s really relaxed, low key, and doesn’t like drama. He’s perfect for Wesley, but unfortunately, their first photo shoot doesn’t go as planned.
These two made me cry in the middle of Starbucks. I looked insane, but they have a really sweet and sexy relationship once they clear up a few things. There’s no “big misunderstanding” in the conventional sense, but they both learn how important communication is in any relationship.

One of the side characters I’ve gotten a ton of questions about is my cute, awkward UPS guy. He’s showed up in several books, most notably when he’s driving Eli crazy. Let’s just say the UPS man was very curious about what was going on at Leashes & Lace.
Well, UPS guy now has a name and even a story. Spencer (my UPS guy) is uncoordinated, confused, and so loveable you just want to wrap him up. His book is the fifth in the Leashes & Lace series and will be out on Friday, November 15.
The only man patient and loving enough for Spencer was Devin, Roman’s cousin from the LGBT youth center, so in this book you not only get Spencer’s story but Devin’s as well. I can’t wait to see what you think about them.

One of the things that was hard for me growing up was knowing I was different but not being able to put a name to it. There were so many stories and ideas running through my head and things I was curious about, but I didn’t have anyone to talk about them with.
When I first started writing (my taboo books in particular), it was amazing to have so many people to share that part of myself with and who were drawn to it as well. The readers who’ve contacted me over the past couple of years to share how my books have touched them or how they’ve related to my characters have meant the world to me. But they also got me thinking.
I couldn’t help but wonder how differently my life would’ve turned out if there had been someone for me to talk to as a kid who’d really understood or who could’ve just accepted me for who I was, not who I’d been told I had to be. So I started thinking about my characters (because really, most of my life involves thinking about how they would react to things lol). That’s where Trent and Hayden came from.
From the first moment they popped up as side characters it was clear they’d been best friends forever, and I wanted to show that relationship. I wanted them to have each other from the very beginning so there was always someone who understood them.
So when I sat down to write their story, I started when they were eight. Kids have such a clear way of seeing things, without all the worries about the whys and fears about what it says about them. They just love and they accept. And when everything is going against you like it is for Hayden and Trent, unconditional acceptance is what keeps you going.
I hope you enjoy their book, and I hope that someday every child can be who they were meant to be without anyone making them feel like it’s wrong.

I think these might be the cutest characters I’ve ever written. Last month I sat down to figure out what to write next and thought Hayden and Trent (side characters from Beautiful Shame, Book 3) would be a fun and easy book to write. I knew how their story ended and assumed it would be really short.
I was wrong.
Unsurprisingly, it turned out longer than I expected. When I sat down to start, I knew that because they’d known each other forever I had to start at the beginning. Well, the beginning for them was when they were kids. I just wasn’t sure how that would turn out.
The first chapter is where Trent discovers that his best friend Hayden has a secret…well, two really…then we jump to when they’re older. There are several time jumps in the book because they just has so much they wanted to share. I’ve done my best to make sure the jumps are clear and make sense in the story line, but there are no flashbacks so that should make it easier.
Here is the start of Without Limits.
