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).

I like looking at things from different points of view. Sometimes it’s watching people as I travel and imagining what their life is like and other times it’s looking at books and thinking that there has to be another way to look at a trope or genre. The dynamics in omegaverse books was one of those things.
I love the books in that subgenre, but one of the things that sometimes drives me crazy about them is the way omegas are treated. If over time women stood up and said they weren’t going to be treated badly anymore, why would omegas be any different? So I started to imagine what my omegas would look like.
Many things in life and society seem to be on a pendulum, so I knew that if in the past omegas had been treated badly, eventually it would be corrected or even over-corrected. In my world omegas aren’t second-class citizens, but everyone is so careful about how they treat them that what the omegas want really doesn’t matter anymore.
My omegas are feisty and funny. They are wonderfully outrageous when they get drunk together, but what they want most of all is to find an alpha who they can submit to…it shouldn’t be scandalous, but it is. But since they’re intelligent, strong-willed guys they go after what they want and end up deciding to build a BDSM club. If they can’t find the alphas, they’ll get the alphas to come to them. Hopefully.
Guess what? The first book in the series Tanner is free on Amazon through the 6th.

This series isn’t your typical omegaverse books, and if you’ve never tried any before, these are a great way to get your feet wet. They’re super funny and the guys are a cute family who love each other. Book four, Bradley, will be out on July 17th.

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.

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.

I’ve got so many things planned for the next few months, I’m not sure where to start sharing everything with you. Since chronological order probably makes the most sense, I’ll start there (even though that’s not how my brain wants to tell you about things lol).
The next book coming out at the beginning of March is from the Leashes & Lace series. Wesley is one of the models who takes photos from home. He’s got things under control now, but in the past, he suffered from agoraphobia and depression. Wesley tried becoming one of the regular models in the traditional photoshoots, but unfortunately, his first attempt was during the insanity with Eli and Roman. He couldn’t handle their drama, so he decided to stay focused on the at-home photos he loves taking. Well, Preston feels terrible about everything and convinces Wesley to let Tyler do a private shoot to dip his toe back in the water…but things don’t go quite as planned. They’re really cute together and I can’t wait to see what you think.
After Wesley, we’re jumping over to the college world again toward the end of March or the very beginning of April. If you’ve read the third Beautiful Shame book, you met Ethan’s father, Sean, who owns the garage that comes up in several books. He’s a sexy older guy who starts realizing a few things when a previous employee, Derek, begins looking at him in a new light and starts outrageously flirting with him. Derek owns an adult novelty store and is a loveable handful. This book has a bit of Daddy kink, but it’s just for fun and to drive Sean nuts. It’s an age gap story with light BDSM and a mature man figuring out he’s not as straight as he thinks he is.
After Derek’s book (which may or may not have a name yet lol—I’m still working on that), we’re going to alternate between the series with Sean that’s based around the garage (they’re all standalones) and more from my feisty and sexy omegas. There’s a lot coming up and the spring is going to be filled with fun subs—like Jules, who is the cutest little—sweet Doms, and scenes that made me cry writing them in Starbucks.
I can’t wait to show you.
Let me know what you’re most looking forward to and in the meantime, join my private facebook group for sneak peaks of all my upcoming books!
A billionaire sub who’s in love with his administrative assistant…there were so many ways Tanner’s book could’ve gone, but they’re sweet and funny and surprisingly unique. So to make sure you get a chance to read about my funny omegas in the Romance & Revolutions series, I’ve made Tanner free through the 11th.
With some wonderfully supportive friends and family, I know you’re going to love how hilarious and sexy they are. Books two and three are already out, and the rest of the guys will start getting their books in April, so now is the time to catch up and fall in love with my sweet omegas.
