2 Year Publishiversary of Rethinking Fate

When a friend recently pointed out that it had been two years since Dr. Sheppard’s book, Rethinking Fate, had come out I was shocked and actually went to look the date up online because I knew it hadn’t been that long.

Well, guess what?

I was wrong.

I still can’t believe it, though, and I refuse to do the math and think about how long it’s been since he first showed up in Secrets in the Dark. Time is moving by so fast, and it seems like just yesterday I started writing about him.

When Dr. S appeared in Secrets in the Dark, I thought it would be a one-time thing for him to show up, so I didn’t poke too hard at him when he gave me vague answers about his past and who he was. He kept trying to put everyone else first, and to begin with, I let him.

But he just kept popping up.

He’d show up here and there when I looked around and realized that my characters needed someone to talk to and to confide in. They can go to him about anything and nothing surprises him. I love having that kind of friend for the rest of my character to lean on, and I think part of what makes him so strong is his Daddy and how comfortable he is with his little side.

If you haven’t read about my sweet doctor and his Daddy, check out their story in Rethinking Fate.

Porter and Landon are HERE! – Bound With You is Now Available

They’re here! It’s time to meet Porter and Landon in Bound with You.

Porter is a tender Dom, and all he wants is to make sure that Landon has a safe place to figure out who he is. Landon is a confused sub (well, he thinks he might be a sub) that’s never been with a man and never submitted.

These two are so cute together and the way Porter talks to Landon and supports him through his boy’s exploration will make your heart melt.

Have fun with my sweet guys. Here’s the first chapter if you’re curious and didn’t get to check it out before.

My Ah-ha Moment When Writing The Original Bound and Controlled Series – Plus New Personality Quizzes!

When I first started writing, I was a teacher with a long, painfully boring commute through the middle of nowhere. So I would spend the drive back and forth dreaming about stories and planning what I would write.

My writing time was in short bits normally early in the morning, so I could get in a few hundred words before I had to get my kids up for the day. Since there was very little time to dawdle when I sat down to write, I planned things out in my head as I drove.

I knew I wanted to do a series, but I wasn’t sure what it should look like or who they would be until one morning on my way to work. As I was driving down the main street in my little town, I passed by a local insurance company and it clicked. I can still picture where I was when I had that ah-ha moment.

Suddenly I knew who they were and what they were doing, and I remember being so frustrated that I couldn’t pull over and write it all down.

I made random, rambling notes into the recorder app on my phone, and then when I got to school, I scrambled to write down as many ideas as I could so I didn’t lose them. Needless to say, after a few more days of driving, I knew all about the brothers and started working my way through their partners.

The insurance part really clicked because before I was a teacher, I sold insurance for several years. I could almost see the guys in my imagination shaking their heads because they thought it should’ve been obvious what they did for a living.

The original Bound & Controlled series is based around four brothers who are all looking for love and all into BDSM in some way. They were so much fun to write because they pick at each other and tease, but you can see that family is important to them.

The new series, Tender Control, is taking us back to the Bound & Controlled club and there are fun cameos from the original couples as well as the owners of the club, Ben and Conner. If you haven’t read the first series, this is the perfect time to catch up, but it’s not necessary to enjoy the new books.

And if you’ve already read the books, have fun taking the quizzes that will tell you which brother or partner you’re most like. This was so much fun to put together—I hope you enjoy it. (if I get a good response to the quizzes, I might do some for other books, just saying)

Coming Soon in the Bound and Controlled World – A Whole New Series!

The Bound and Controlled club is one of my favorite parts of my world, but I haven’t managed to take too many characters back there lately. So when I was trying to decide what I wanted to write this year, I knew it was time to change that.

In Something About Loren, you met a few of the guys who are going to be part of a new series, Tender Control. The first book is Bound with You and will be out on March 19. Book two is Bound to You and will be out on April 23. Both books are up for preorder now because lately, I’ve done nothing but write.

(FYI once the world opens up, I’m planning on traveling until I forget where I live, so you might get fewer books eventually. *Fingers crossed*)

But back to my new guys.

The new series revolves around a group of guys who’ve been friends for years. They’re all at the point in their lives where they’re looking for someone special and are all right on the edge of starting to think they’ll never find someone to love.

Porter is the first friend who meets a reserved and slightly confused Landon at his first night at the club. Landon is curious about a lot of things but has no idea who he is because he’s been focused on everyone else for so long he feels completely lost…but Porter is going to change that.

These two are sexy and sweet, but a bit open to new things as well. There are two scenes with watersports. One scene is something they’re watching at the club, so it’s easy to skip. The other is a shower scene that again is easy to skip, but I think the very end of that scene is super sweet. But if you’re curious, both scenes are really romantic and explore the intimacy of that kind of scene, not just the topic itself.

If you’re curious, here’s the first chapter of Bound with You, and coming up soon, I’ll tell you more about how the original B&C series came about.

Cutie the Cop is finally here – Bashful is Now Available!

Cutie the Cop is finally here…Austin’s nickname for him of course.

I love getting to write characters who are just a little unique. Sometimes it’s the way they see the world and other times it’s something about who they are that’s just a bit special, but they’re some of my favorite types of characters to write.

Gideon is special in a lot of ways. He’s a cop that’s sweeter than most and he’s a physically small alpha…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. But he keeps everything else hidden away, especially his longing to submit.

Bashful (MA Innes) is the start of a spinoff series that is a kinkier side to the Romance & Revolutions series (Shaw Montgomery). It’s a slow burn romance with lots of age play age play and BDSM, and the rest of the series will have everything from puppy play to naughty twins. So keep an eye out for more in the Love and Secrets series.

Learning to Trust and My Cameron Now on Audible!

I’ve been watching Audible for days wondering which of the new audiobooks would show up first…and wouldn’t you know, they came out on the same day.

Learning to Trust is the first book in The Education of the Heart series. It’s an age play romance with a Daddy who doesn’t realize he’s a Daddy and isn’t sure how to define his sexuality. This is a slow burn romance, but there are a lot of tender moments between them. Book two in the series will be out on audiobook sometime around the end of March, so you won’t have to wait too long.

I can’t wait to see what you think of the audiobooks. While they’re very different on the surface, they both have sweet subs and Doms that see things a little bit differently…and those are both some of my favorite kinds of characters, so have fun with the new audiobooks.
