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.

I know you’ve heard me say this before, but some characters are just louder than others. Each one of them is different, but some characters just keep chattering and want to tell me everything from what they had for breakfast to what they want to do next year. Loren was one of the chatty kinds.
For me, one of the hardest things about writing is keeping anything short. The original novella of Something About Loren that went in the Dirty Daddy anthology drove me crazy because I kept having to decide what they needed to do and what Loren couldn’t ramble on about.
He really didn’t appreciate having to be succinct, so he was very excited when I started to write more of their story. One of the things he was most excited to explore outside of more age play with Gordon was his friendship with Cooper from The Accidental Master series.
In the extended version of Something About Loren, you’ll get to see my funny pups playing with Loren, and they even take a trip to the Bound & Controlled club. To say that Cooper was excited would be an incredible understatement.
The extended version of Something About Loren comes out this Friday, and I can’t wait to see what you think about Loren playing with the pups and their trip to the club. If you haven’t read their short, here’s a peek at the first chapter of Something About Loren.

Archer and Declan are finally here. The Beautiful Shame books are always some of my favorite to write. The dirty talk and edging are so much fun to write and the characters always have tons of chemistry and emotional connections.
Archer and Declan have that same chemistry from the first time they meet, and in between the sexy teasing and the dirty talk, you can see how they come to care for one another.
If you’re looking for something sexy and sweet to read that has a dash of kink and some fun cameos (Archer works in insurance…hint hint) check out these two.
Here’s the first chapter if you’re curious.

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.

We all want to belong. Sometimes it’s little things that make us feel like we’re part of the club. In writing, one of the things that really made me feel like I belong was getting asked to do the Dirty Daddies anthology for this year. It probably sounds silly, but it’s basically other authors looking at you and saying that they like your work and they trust you to do the best you can when you participate.
But, man, writing shorter stories is soooo hard.
Like insanely frustrating.
Like it takes three times as long as it should to write because everyone in my head is long-winded.
Like they want to tell you what they bought at the grocery store kind of long-winded just because they want to chat.
So wrangling Loren and Gordon into a complete but not two-hundred-page story wasn’t easy, but the three of us managed it. Mostly Gordon, honestly. He’s the take-charge Daddy type who likes watching over Loren.
Loren is the smart, free-spirited type who doesn’t really want to grow up and Gordon loves that about him. Gordon just doesn’t understand what that might mean until a friend at work (someone by the name of Sawyer) starts talking to him about types of submission he’s never thought much about.
Something about Loren has sweet age play, a bit of BDSM, and some fun cameos. The anthology will go live on September 29th and is now on preorder at Amazon, Apple, and Barnes & Noble. The anthology is a mix of MF and MM stories and is available for $0.99, so it’s a fabulous deal.

Check out this free giveaway on Prolific Works (used to be Instafreebie). I’ve got a short sweet age play book in it, and there are a lot of other great authors who’ve teamed up to give you a ton of kinky and taboo stories.
My short is The Man He Needs. It’s about Keith’s journey to open up to his boyfriend and his boyfriend Blake’s journey to show Keith that he can be the man he needs and nothing will change that. It’s sweet and sexy and is a standalone story. You’ll have to let me know what you think and if you want more from them at some point.
