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.

Getting to Know Leon Better – Learning to Love Coming November 13th!

My confused Leon and my sweet Morgan…their story turned out differently than I thought it would when I sat down to originally begin figuring out Leon, but I love the way it turned out.

One of my favorite things to write about is college age characters because they’re still figuring out who they are, and I love that whole process. At the start of Learning to Trust, Leon had shoved his emotions to the back burner and was basically just putting one foot in front of the other. Destin pulled him out of his shell a bit (complaining and grumbling the whole way lol), but Leon still didn’t know who he was.

In Learning to Love, they both grow even more and we get to see more of Leon’s background. Meeting Leon’s parents for the first time is stressful and interesting for Morgan, but it really lets him get to know more about who Leon is inside.

Watching these two come together has been so much fun. Learning to Love is the last book for them, but I know that they’re going to pop up later down the line in interesting places. If you haven’t read Learning to Trust yet, these two have sweet age play, a bit of BDSM, and some fun scenes with Destin from The Only Way to Dream.

Check out the first chapter of Learning to Love which is up on preorder now and will go live on the 13th of November.

What’s Coming Next? Books in November, December, and 2021

Nothing ever goes according to plan for me…I write out a list of what I want to write and my characters giggle and do their own thing.

In early October as I was finishing the last book for Leon and Morgan, I started poking at several ideas and I told myself I was going to write a new Beautiful Shame book. But my brain didn’t like that idea. With everything going on lately, and just the general chaos in my head, it all came to a screeching halt.

Well, not a complete halt. I have names and fabulously dirty ideas about what they’re doing to do together, but for those books I have to be in a certain frame of mind to write them. So now that my kids are back in person at the school part-time (two days a week), I’m going to try again because those are so much fun to write.

But that left me wandering around my house mid-October trying to decide what to focus on. So I started poking at my list again and rearranging things. That put Maverick and Trip at the top of the list suddenly. It wasn’t the order I’d planned to have their book done, but they were chatting and fun to write, so that worked for me.

So what’s coming up… Well, Leon and Morgan’s second book is up on preorder(here) and will be out on November 13th. (Check out Book 1 here.)

After that, we’ve got Trip and Maverick’s completed book coming out on November 29th. (Don’t forget to check out My Cameron before Trip’s book comes out!

Then in mid-December the goal is to jump back into the Beautiful Shame books because I love writing those and the dirty talk in those books is always so much fun.

I’ve saved the best for last, though…

Next year we’re going back to the B&C club in several books. The Bound & Controlled club is getting another series with lots of fun club action and lots of fun cameos from the guys from the first series.

We’re also going to see more of Bishop and Gray from the Leashes & Lace world, as well as more of Loren and Gordon. I’ve got great ideas for all the guys and now I just need to clone myself so I can get it all written.

Wade Is Ready For Romance Again – Coming October 23rd

When I first started writing my omega series, the first character to speak to me (the prequel) was Wade—but he was always focused on everyone else, not himself. Throughout the rest of the series, he stayed that way. He pushed to make everyone happier and loved to see them excited, but he never expected that same happiness for himself.

In his mind, he’d already had his happiness and that was that.

For those of you who haven’t read the Romance & Revolutions series yet, Wade is a widower and loved his alpha more than anything. When Matthew passed, it was like Wade’s world ended. But everything changed as the guys began planning the club and as they started falling in love.

Over the books, he started coming out of his shell. If you haven’t read Dakota’s book yet I won’t spoil it, but you really see how Wade starts to heal and show that he’s ready for a relationship. Well, next month when his book comes out, you’re going to meet the sexy firefighter from his past that comes back into his life again at the club’s opening.

I can’t wait to show you how Wade has started to heal and how sweet they are together…both dancing around their attraction and learning how to move forward together.

Wade’s book will be out on October 23rd and is available for preorder now. If you haven’t read the series yet, this is the best time to start because Wade’s book will be the last in the main series, although there will be some spinoff stories that take place at the club. There are just too many cute characters—like the sweet cop—who still need their stories for me to leave them completely.

Leon, Trip, and Dakota (plus something secret) Coming Soon!

Picking one work-in-progress to tell you about isn’t reasonable because I’m working on several things and they’re all at different stages…so I’m going to tell you about a few of the stories.

Leon (Destin’s roommate from The Only Way to Dream) is getting his own book and his life has taken an interesting turn.

Destin is now living with his guys—and we’re just going to say that the new guy who moved into the dorms with him when Destin left was not the easiest to live with. So Leon is now living in the apartment building where Bryan and Maddox used to live. He’s got another new roommate, but this time one who’s sweet…and curiously private about this life. Of course, Leon isn’t built to be subtle or to mind his own business, so you’ll have to see what happens.

I’ve also started working on a second book in my alien world. This book is about Trip (Cameron’s best friend in My Cameron) and the alien he met in the grocery store. The unedited chapters will go up in my Facebook group and in my newsletter. After the story is done, it will get cleaned up and will go up on Amazon. If you’re curious about my tentacle aliens, check out My Cameron. Those books seem to end just a little steamy, but the couples are so cute.

Another thing I’ve got going on is the final edits for Dakota’s book. It will probably be out in a few weeks, so now is the time to start reading the omega books if you haven’t already. Dakota is a writer who gets very wrapped up in what he’s working on, and Tristan comes in and is the perfect “keeper” for the distracted writer. They’re cute together and have explosive role-playing sex scenes. We’re just going to say that Dakota has a great imagination.

Oh, and my last project is something super-secret that I need to wait a few more weeks before telling you all about. But what I can say is that it’s age play with a couple who’s been living together for about a year and it’s the Daddy who starts introducing age play into their relationship. I can’t wait to tell you more about this one, and really, all the books that are coming up.

Keep an eye out for more about Leon’s love interest and to see when Dakota’s book will go up on pre-order.

More Side Characters Begging For Attention

Sometimes side characters just slip right by you while you’re reading or writing, completely unnoticed, and other times they won’t get out of your head. A few of my favorite reoccurring characters started out life as side characters I thought would just quietly pass through a chapter and would never be seen again, like Dr. Sheppard who eventually got his own book (Rethinking Fate).

Every series has different side characters that stand out to me as clearly needing their own books, but I thought I’d share a few of my current favorites…and probably give some hints about what I have in mind for them for the future. Just because teasing is fun.

In my sexy and fun omega series, Romance & Revolutions, there’s this cute little cop who popped up randomly in book two. He’s all wide eyes and embarrassed curiosity and he’s just screaming for a big sexy Dom to take care of him. Of course, the issue with that is going to be that my cute little cop is an alpha and he’s not supposed to want another alpha to dominate him.

His book should be fun because I’ve been talking about him with a friend of mine and we’re both pretty sure he’s a very closeted little who wants a Daddy. This fall is packed with books and ideas already, but I’m hoping to start working on his book around Thanksgiving. Check out the R&R series if you haven’t had a chance because there are a lot of fun side characters in there who need a story.

While my cute cop doesn’t even have a name yet, some characters change their names on me. Leon, who shows up as Destin’s roommate in The Only Way to Dream, started out life as Leo, but I mistyped his name so many times I decided he was trying to make a point and let him be Leon.

He comes across as a bit grumpy and terribly vanilla, but he’s got a few secrets hiding away and I can’t wait to show you his book. It just might be another age play story, and I’ve already got the first few chapters written. I’ll give you a peek at his love interest later this week once I’ve gotten a bit further in the book.

Share in the comments: What side characters would you like to know more about? I love hearing which cuties have caught readers’ attention, and it helps me plan out what I want to work on for the future.
