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.
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.
