TRR Blog Hop – Sept 13 -21st

TRRFallHop

I’m showcasing two books on this Blog Hop , all books that I’ve really enjoyed and will definitely read again. They are Sarah Madison’s ‘The Boys of Summer’ and Lou Harper’s ‘Spirit Sanguine’

THE BOYS OF SUMMER BY SARAH MADISON

Boys of Summer

Sarah Madison writes a wonderful story of romance and love and the two MC’s, David and Rick are just beautiful together. One of the things I love about this story (and there were many) was the humour between the men. I really enjoy a reading journey that makes me laugh as well as cry. And I did weep, but I’m not telling you why. You’ll have to find out for yourself by reading it.

It was a sensual read and when the sex does happen, it’s intimate, wondrous and emotional. I loved the two stories twining together in this one to make a whole and you get a real feel for the developing relationship between these two men.

I reviewed this book for TRR and you can find my full review and the details on this book at the link below.

And now for Lou’s book…

SPIRIT SANGUINE BY LOU HARPER

Spirit Sanguine

Funny, often irreverent, sometimes tongue in cheek and damn sexy read is how I’d list this one. The story of Gabe , a vampire slayer, who meets Harvey, a rather camp but oh so sexy vampire. The two meet, the proverbial stakes fly, they work together to defeat a common enemy and in the process, have hot, raunchy sex, get to know each other and realise that yes, they were meant to be together.

There were places when I chuckled out loud and my husband growled at me to ‘Shut the hell up, no book could be that bloody funny’ -well it was after midnight 🙂 But yes, I did find myself with a few more laugh lines after reading this.

It was warm, sexy, pure fun and another book I will read again. I reviewed this book too and this is the link to follow if you want to find out more.

Safari Heat Blog Hop Sept 11-16th

Safari Heat
All the rules and how the hop will work it listed on the Safari Heat site. Follow the link below.
http://safariheatbooktoursandauthorservices.blogspot.com

I wanted to do something a little humorous for this blog hop. So I thought maybe a quick text conversation between my two characters, Shane Templar and Matthew Langer might fit the bill. Shane is a cheeky hacker, whose favourite tool (apart from his own) is a laptop called Bushwhacker and Matthew is a more reserved, responsible lawyer with OCD tendencies. He likes neat and tidy.

Please note there are some sexual innuendos and chat in this conversation so if you offend easily, please move on …:)

Shane Morning, lover. Hope you made it to work okay after this morning. You totally spiked my traffic this morning. I love morning sex.
Matthew Hell, you are dreadful, Shay. Where the hell do you find these sayings?
Shane I have my ways and means. About this morning – I love playing on your laptop, you know that.
Matthew Sex with you is always a pleasure. I can’t think of anything clever to say like you, I’ll have to Google something. But you have this of mine ♥
Shane Love you too, babe. Fancy doing a little peer-to-peer saliva swapping later? I’ll buy wine. Oh by the way don’t freak out when you get home. I didn’t line up the towels the way you like them. I left them on the bathroom floor, all wet and scrumpled.
Matthew Ha bloody ha. You wouldn’t do that. You know how much I hate it.
Five minutes pass
Matthew Shay, you were kidding, right?
Five minutes later.
Matthew. Bastard. I’m going into a meeting now, so switching off the phone. See you tonight x
Shane Actually I was wondering if you’d like to go back to My-Space, so I can Twitter with your Yahoo, until I Google all over your Facebook?
Matthew –OMG. You are insatiable. I love it. See you later, and then I’ll hack your kernel..
Shane Found the cheesy pick up line site did you? Have a good meeting. Love you x Oh and I was kidding about the towels. But I did mix up the tins in the cupboard…:)♥

Cover Reveal – ‘Saving Alexander’- release date October 2nd

I have a new book coming out in October, my second M/M Romance and one I’ve been working on for a while. It’s with my editor at the moment but I’m happy I can show you the beautiful cover for this book and share a little bit about what this story is about. It’s been an education writing this and I’ve learn more about S and M practices and the human psyche that I ever thought I needed to know. I was also very fortunate in having a lovely lady in Dallas, Texas, her name is Elizabeth Cummings, guiding me on some of Alex’s emotional development and of course, on Sage’s too as he learns to live with the fact that he isn’t the only man in Alex’s life. And yes, Alex does have two different colour eyes. It’s a condition called Heterochromia Iridum. I have a mixed breed collie who has the same trait.

Saving Alexander

Punishing himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.
Famous author though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M club.
Then comes Sage. Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If only the solution would reach out and touch him.

***********************************************************************************
For a little bit of fun…

PS This is a picture of my dog Blu with his different colour eyes -one blue, one brown. This was taken in my lounge and Piglet is his favourite toy.He’s wet because he’s been playing in the garden while my husband waters it -and the dog.

‘Stripped Bare’ can now be pre-ordered!

I am so excited! ‘Stripped Bare’ is now available to pre-order on the Boroughs website. So if you fancy getting a heads up on the book before official release on 22nd July, this is the place to go.
http://www.boroughspublishinggroup.com/books/stripped-bare

Here’s a short excerpt from the start of the book to enjoy and whet the appetite…

All tied up with nowhere to go

Shane Templar watched the man standing by the bed. Shane had no idea how he’d gotten himself into this situation, but he had to admit that this wasn’t the first time. He’d thought he was cleverer than he used to be. He went through a mental checklist as he ticked off the items that had led him into the predicament he now faced.
Male √
Gay √
Intelligent √
Street wise √
Pretty smoking hot √
Experienced Escort √
Pushover No- fucking- way.
So, with that all established in his head, he wondered how in hell he was the one with his five ten frame tied spread eagled to a bed in the middle of a client’s very luxurious hotel room in the middle of London while said client, David Debussy, a regular, jerked off in front of him.
Shane’s brain felt woolly and he knew he’d been slipped something. He cursed at his lack of observation and awareness. He never made mistakes like this. Never.
Shane had met Debussy, as requested, at the five-star Baglione Hotel in Kensington and escorted the man through an interminably boring dinner for stock brokers. But while the dinner had made him consider slitting his own throat, the man beside him had made it almost bearable. Shane enjoyed being with David. He’d partnered the man close to half a dozen times over the last year, very much as a companion only.
Not once during the previous ‘engagements’, as Shane’s exclusive escort agency, Carrington Knights, called them , had it turned into anything more than a quick kiss goodbye on the lips and a promise of another date soon. Shane had often left his engagements with David with a raging hard on and had to make his way to the exclusive gay club in the middle of the West End. At Essence, Shane could usually find someone to alleviate his situation and give him some relief.
David was in his mid-twenties, a few years younger than Shane. He was charming, with deep russet hair, a physique like a Greek God and a backside that made Shane’s fantasies take free reign. He had wealth from a trust fund his mother left him that made Konrad Feldman look like a pauper. He also had a domineering father who tried to rule David with an iron fist.
Debussy was intelligent, attentive, and as sexy as hell.
At the end of this evening, David had suggested Shane join him for a drink in his room. Shane had agreed. He had a very firm policy about sleeping with his clients. Contrary to popular belief, he didn’t fuck them all. He was very choosy about whom he went home with. He had to like the person, feel comfortable with them and they had to make him feel horny. But after the second glass of champagne and a lot of hot and heavy kissing and crotch banging, he remembered nothing more. Until now.
Shane pulled at the cords that bound his wrists and ankles to the posts of a four poster bed. There was no way he was getting out of the bindings anytime soon. His naked body was splayed out on a luxurious Matelasse bed spread. The fierce erection that had sprung up when he and David were making out earlier had flagged.
He groaned, hoping to distract the man sitting on the corner of the bed close to him, frantically stroking his dick and looking as if he was going to let loose at any minute. The man’s eyes stared at him with a look of sheer greed, darting from Shane’s hairy chest to the blonde line of hair that ran down to his groin. Shane thought gloomily that at the moment there wasn’t much to see. He blamed it on whatever drug he’d been given.
“Erm, David? Honestly, you didn’t have to go all this trouble to jack off. I would have done it for you, you know that. Maybe if you took these ties off me, I could finish the job? Hand or mouth, I don’t mind either way. If you want to top, that’s fine with me too. I mean, I’m not even that hard either, so maybe we can work on that. Give you something more to look at.” He grinned through gritted teeth. There was no way Shane was getting the bastard off but it didn’t hurt to let him think that. He was more likely to punch the sly bugger in the nose. He disliked being made a fool of.
David moaned but didn’t stop what he was doing. “God, Shane, you are just perfect any way, you know that? You have got the most incredibly sexy body. Not buff but really toned.” His plummy tones, which earlier had been very seductive to Shane’s ears, were now an irritating high class whine in Shane’s brain. “I’m sorry I had to slip you something and tie you up, but I prefer you that way. “
Shane wondered if David had done this before and what the reaction had been from other men. He planned to make an example of the fact that it wasn’t the ‘done thing’ in his book just as soon as David cut him loose.
“I really wanted you tonight, Shane. I liked undressing you while you slept, and then splaying you out like that for me to see.” The man shivered in ecstasy and Shane could see he was close to climaxing, “That’s what gets me off. I mean, I paid for you right, so I should get what I want. The customer’s always right, correct?”
Who the fuck did this guy think he was, treating him like a piece of meat? He might have paid for the evening, but that didn’t give the bastard any right to do this to him.
“I didn’t think you’d mind.”
The whining increased, adding to the slow burn of fury that ebbed and waned through Shane’s chest. He gritted his teeth, needing to talk the other man into letting him go, not blasting him with a tirade of salty swear words Shane had learned from his fisherman grandfather. He had rather a rather profane mouth as a result.
“David, you look pretty close to eruption, so why don’t you let me go and I can help you with that? You like the look of my arse? Well, if you let me up, you can have it. It’s all yours.”
David moved closer to Shane, still tugging himself madly. David’s gasps grew more strident and louder as his body began to jerk uncontrollably. Shane closed his eyes in resignation. It was too late. The hot, wet, acrid smelling ejaculate shot all over his stomach and groin as David directed it over him and shouted out in release.
Shane was bathed in white spurts of semen that shot across his lower belly like silly string, warming his flesh and leaving sticky snail trails. It wasn’t the first time he’d been bathed in the stuff but it was the first time it had been done without his permission or willing participation. He opened his eyes to see David smiling at him.
“God, Shane, that was incredible,” David blabbered, missing Shane’s narrowed eyes and complete lack of humour as he bobbed around on the bed like a kid at Christmas. “Let me get those bonds off you. Hold on and I’ll untie you.”
A distinct sense of relief flooded Shane’s body that he wasn’t closeted with a psycho about to carve him up or rape him. He knew he’d been lucky tonight and that made him all the more mad. He didn’t like taking risks like this one.
Shane watched as the other man fiddled with the ankle restraints, and when he’d freed Shane’s legs, David moved up over Shane’s body to untie his wrists. He was oblivious to the stillness of Shane’s body and the tensing of his muscles as he waited to be set free.
As soon as he unties that first one, I am going to fucking deck him right across his pretty face and beat the shit out of him.

Blog Hop for my friend -Kindle Alexander ‘The Current Between Us’

She’s not only a great writer who writes books about men loving men and has the greatest characters ever with some of the hottest scenes, Kindle is also a very great lady.

So I owe her a debt of thanks. So as a favour to me and everyone who follows my blog and likes what I post (because why else you would be following me?) I’d love it if you could pay her a visit on her blog tour and leave a comment, maybe buy one of her books and generally just show her some love.
