When R. Phoenix came to me and asked me to write a character for her new book Alpha (the sequel to her dark erotica Puppy) I was excited—but nervous. My characters are generally sweet and sexy. I wasn’t sure how my style would work in her universe. For those of you who haven’t read her books, she writes dark paranormal when I’m not dragging her over to the sweeter taboo side.
She already had the idea for my character, Zain, but didn’t have a clear picture about who he should be, just the idea behind why he was important to the story. To me, it was easy to see who Zain was. He started chattering right away, sweet, but with interesting layers in him.
If you’ve read Puppy, then you’ll understand why the main characters, Caleb and Liam, needed someone to step in and make them more functional. Alpha was so much fun to write, even though it’s nothing like my usual sweet romances. If you don’t like darker themes or dubious consent, then skip this one. I understand this won’t be for everyone. However, Puppy was one of the first takes on puppy play that I’d read, and even though it’s a dark, unconventional take on it, I was fascinated. I think a lot of that came out in Zain. I can’t wait to see what you think.
If you’re waiting for sweeter puppy play, it’s less than a week for The Accidental Master. I really think you’re going to love Cooper, Sawyer, and Jackson.

Leashes and Lace: Houston

When I first started thinking about writing a book about a guy who liked wearing lingerie, I couldn’t pick just one story to tell. There were so many ideas and people banging around in my head, I knew it would have to be a series. Leashes & Lace came out of that brainstorming and exploring. I wanted a series that would be a place where all the characters could show you their stories. Each couple will be different, and each man who’s drawn to lingerie, and sometimes other feminine things, will have a unique story to tell as well.

Houston is the first book in the series.

As I started planning out his book, he came across as open and take charge but a little hesitant. It took me a while to figure out he was trying to tell me he was a Dom as well. My panty-wearing Dom knows what he wants, but he’s a bit tired of other people judging him. When his new roommate moves in, he’s not ready to believe that the perfect guy has fallen right into his lap. I can’t wait for you to meet them.

Here’s the first chapter…

Almost Strangers

Last year at GRL (Gay Romance Lit retreat) I got to hang out with R. Phoenix. She’s a wonderful author who writes dark, mostly supernatural books with complicated romances and characters that draw you in. Well, as we were talking at GRL we both made a passing comment about wanting to work together on a project at some point.

Much to my surprise, she actually meant it. In January, we started talking about what we should write and bouncing around ideas. Well, Adrian and Owen came out of those discussions. The story is sweeter than she usually writes, but as most of you know, the people in my head are loving and cute, not particularly dark. So she took it easy on me as we started discussing different taboos and kinks.

Almost Strangers is an incest/puppy play romance between brothers who are basically living separate lives at the start of the story. Over the course of the book, they get to know each other and start to see that they were both under a lot of misconceptions…about themselves and each other.

They’re sweet, and are both a little scared even though they handle their fear differently. I can’t wait for you to meet our new guys. Check out the first chapter if you’re curious.

Leashes & Lace

One of the new series that I have coming up soon is Leashes & Lace. It’s going to revolve around an online store that sells men’s lingerie and fetish wear. You’ll see different employees and customers in each book, but they’ll all revolve around the store in some way.

I can’t wait for you to meet my new guys and see how sexy and funny they are. So far it’s an interesting mix of fascinating and not quite traditional couples. From a sassy bottom who isn’t afraid to make waves, to a Dom who wears panties, they’re all unique, and I’m thoroughly enjoying writing about them.

To tide you over until the first book is released, here is a standalone short prequel to start the series. NO newsletter sign up is required to download the book. Have fun with Easton and Daniel.
