Houston is going to be free through Saturday so this is the best time to grab the audiobook if you’ve been thinking about jumping in to those.
Casey is finally here! Check out book four in the sexy Leashes & Lace series. Preston’s been obsessed over the shy Casey for almost a year and it’s time for him to finally step up and see if the shy cutie is interested in being more than just friends.
I can’t believe it’s less than a week until Casey is finally out. Friday can’t come soon enough. As shy as he is, he really works at making sure Preston knows what he wants, even when it’s hard. Of course, his friend Lane and the always helpful Eli are looking to make sure Casey gets his happily ever after.
One of the hard parts about writing this book was the time delay between when Preston and Casey first met and when they actually started dating. To give you an idea about what Casey went through during that time, I’ve included entries from Casey’s personal blog that works almost like a diary for him.
The blog entries give you a peek into how he’s grown since first meeting the guys at Leashes & Lace. The posts let you see how he grew and changed during that missing time. Here’s a look at the first blog post in the book and a link to the first chapter. Have fun meeting Casey.
I know I don’t tell you guys a lot about my job; being an accountant is boring most of the time. Some of you will remember that the company I work for makes lingerie. What I might have glossed over was that one of the lines they make is lingerie for men. Well, we went to visit one of the companies this week that sells our brand and it was…I can’t even think of the word.
When I started this blog, it was just to have a place to talk things through and figure out who I was. I thought I’d finally gotten a handle on what I wanted. I’ve admitted to you guys I’m submissive, and I’ve even talked about some of the things I’m curious about, but man…today was…mind-blowing.
The guys were wearing panties.
I mean, I’m not stupid. I realize that’s a thing, but it was the first time I’ve seen men who looked like that…they were beautiful.
Let me go back—because I think I’m jumping around. When we went to the other company, they were nice and gave us a tour. Part of the tour was seeing a photo shoot with the lingerie my company makes. Seeing the men dressed in so little and just wandering around the room was…I probably looked like I was in an old cartoon with my eyes bugging out of my head, but I couldn’t help myself.
They were so confident and incredible. The models seemed to come in all shapes and sizes, from big buff guys in sexy panties to little twink guys like me in see-through nightgowns. I can’t believe I’m going to write this, but I’m curious…you guys didn’t think it was weird when I talked to you about the spanking stuff, but is this…what do you think?
Eleven months until first date
Casey knows what he wants; he’s just not always sure how to go about getting it. He knows he’ll never get Preston, the sexy man who runs Leashes & Lace, to notice him unless he’s ready to open up and step out of his comfort zone. But can he really tell the confident, sweet man that what he wants most of all is a master?
Preston knows that what he wants might be startling for the shy man he’s starting to fall for, but after a year of dancing around their attraction to one another, he knows it’s time to take things to the next level. But will Preston’s wide-eyed accountant be able to accept that Preston isn’t as vanilla as he might appear?
When shyness and secrets stand between two men who are perfect for one another, it might take friends near and far to give them the push they need.
Story Contains: M/m sexual content, mild BDSM, gender-fluid dressing, and two accidentally inebriated subs who lose their filters
Casey: Leashes & Lace, Book 4
The Puppy Play Photo Shoot
As Tyler smiled over the utter chaos, I knew he’d been the perfect choice to run the shoot. I tried to imagine Roman wading through the pups dashing around on the floor chasing balls, and I had to swallow a laugh. He’d have been miserable, but Tyler looked perfectly at home, despite the fact that he was new to Leashes and Lace as a photographer.
Organizing the shoot hadn’t been as difficult as I’d expected, but I still wasn’t sure how it would all come together. With such a mix of personalities, I knew the pictures would either be perfect or end up looking awkward and pieced together.
Making sure we’d added extra time to the schedule to let them get comfortable together had been a good idea.
“They look so cute,” Eli said with a happy sigh, smiling as he surveyed the pups in the room.
“Yes, but we’ve got a few very nervous models still.” Some of the pups had already met at different functions, and their excitement was almost contagious. However, there were a few who were still close to their handlers’ side, quietly watching as the other pups raced around.
It was designed to be a more candid shoot, so we weren’t looking for stylish perfection. Pups were fun and full of life, and I wanted every picture infused with their excitement and energy. Getting them all into the right frame of mind before we started the more structured portion of the shoot would be key, however.
We watched as Tyler knelt down and rolled a ball to one of the pups still on the sidelines. The handler smiled encouragingly as the pup looked up and gave a low bark. When the handler leaned down and reached for the ball, the pup’s excitement started to build.
Whatever words the handler said were too low for us to hear, but the pup sat up and I could see his tail starting to wag. When the man tossed the ball back over to Tyler, the pup barked again, his head swinging back and forth between the two men.
Tyler’s smile widened as he held it for a long, teasing moment before rolling it back to the handler, clearly trying to tempt the pup. It was too much for the pup to resist. As the ball tumbled past him on the floor, he hopped on it, barking frantically like he’d caught the world’s best toy and it was all his.
The man laughed and leaned closer to run his hand down the pup’s back before bringing it up to caress over the masked muzzle. The pup’s whole body wiggled and squirmed in pleasure as his tail swung back and forth.
Each of the pups were dressed differently, depending on their comfort level, and this one had tiny black shorts under a harness that secured his simple black tail in place. Special gloves gave him the look of paws, and knee pads made it easy to dash around on the floor, but the mask really brought it all together.
The pup’s mask was neoprene, so it was soft and breathable, but the colors and features really brought out the uniqueness of each pup. It was always interesting to see which ones they’d picked to represent that side of themselves.
It’d taken some time to figure out how to handle the puppy gear side of Leashes and Lace. But once we’d realized they needed more autonomy than the more traditional models did when it came to what they wore, it all came together.
Depending on what line we were advertising, the pups got a variety of things to choose from. We’d only had a few times where for some reason one of the masks or tails weren’t chosen, and that usually gave us a good indication it wouldn’t sell in the long run anyway. If the pups who modeled the gear weren’t interested in it, then a curious person who was browsing through the site would probably never be drawn to it.
I still wasn’t sure how I’d gotten dragged to another photo shoot. I’d told Eli no. Hadn’t I? I was pretty sure I’d said no. Maybe.
It was all Lane’s fault.
He’d been the one to bring Eli to lunch, so this had to be all his fault. I still wasn’t sure why Eli had wanted to come in the first place. Normally, all Lane and I talked about was business stuff. The plan had been to talk about the possible marketing options for when I took my freelance accounting business to the next level by quitting my corporate accounting job, but that had to be put on hold with Eli there.
Lane said Eli was crazy smart, but sharing things about my business felt wrong. I wasn’t ready. I was also a bit nuts and didn’t want him to realize that. Talking about it always made me feel a bit insecure, and as shy as I was normally, I tried not to add anything else that made me look insane.
As I watched the chaos unfold in front of me, I tried to figure out how I’d gotten dragged back to Leashes and Lace, but I still wasn’t sure.
I knew I’d told Eli no.
All the lingerie was too tempting and fascinating, and then there was the biggest problem…what if Preston showed up?
I wasn’t completely sure where things stood, and I didn’t know how to figure that out. If he called or took me out to lunch, it was related to the business. However, he’d been emailing me things lately. They were always just random videos and memes. Silly things.
The fact that he’d asked for my personal email address so he could send them made it harder to figure out what was going on. Personal email address meant…something…but what? Were we friends like Lane and I? Had it been his way of hinting he wanted something more?
“You bored?” Lane’s hand resting on my shoulder had me jumping two feet out of the chair.
When I could catch my breath, I shook my head. “No. I’m good.”
Lane cracked a smile but didn’t tease much. “Just a bit jumpy?”
“Maybe.” I took another breath and glanced around, hoping no one had seen my reaction. The last thing I wanted was for it to get back to Preston that I was weird. Not that I thought people would even notice me or talk about me to Preston, but—
Lane’s low laughter had me focusing back on him. “Um, sorry?”
He crouched down beside the chair, his billowing nightgown pooling around him. It wouldn’t have been so distracting if he weren’t completely naked under it. Friends shouldn’t see other friends’ junk, right?
“Is anything specific bothering you?” He cocked his head, and I could see questions flying across his face. “You don’t have to stay if you don’t want to.”
“No, it’s fine. It’s…interesting.” And fascinating and crazy and overwhelming and I wanted a pair of the panties Eli was wearing, but the words would never come out of my mouth.
“Good.” Lane leaned over and gave me a quick hug before standing up, the outline of his cock framed by the soft fabric.
Maybe I wanted the nightgown too.
January has flown by for me so far. There’s a lot going on, but first I thought I would tell you about some sales that are going on right now. To start with, Friday, January 18 was International Fetish Day, and in honor of that, I put The Accidental Master, His Missing Pieces, and the first Beautiful Shame book on sale for $0.99, so if you haven’t gotten those yet, now is the time. The sale will go through Monday, and it’s for the US and UK Amazon stores.
Also, now that I have the Loving books (the Too Close series) up for sale on my site, I have the first book currently free. Too Close to Love is a slow burn incest romance. Kevin and Jeremy are brothers who’ve been close since Kevin was almost abducted as a young teen. Over time, the emotion that comes from that event changes how they see one another.
It was a book I originally wrote because the characters were so vivid, I had to see where their story would lead. If you haven’t read it yet, I hope you enjoy it. If you already love the guys, I promise there is more of their story to come.
