Excerpt: 18+

“Ri—…”

Arms slinked around my waist and his breath was hot upon my neck, leaving soft pecks and a small swipe of his tongue searing a trail of fire along the skin there.

He purred, deep and gravel-like in the back of his throat. Sexy. Very, very sexy.

“Mmmm, you taste better than I’d imagined.”

I felt him grind up against me, making me weak in the knees again. I tried to turn around to face him. He wasn’t having it. His arms tightened around my chest as he burrowed into my neck. I became so overheated from what he was doing to me. I felt the enormity of him pressing into my backside, the thrust of his hips against me, small grunts from his mouth as he did so punctuating against my neck, making it even harder to concentrate enough to say anything. His hands slipped under my shirt and in one slick move he yanked it clear off my head, flinging it into a nearby bush. His fingers went straight to my nipples, twisting them, fingering them hard and rough. The swelling in my pants was automatic.

A whiff of something on the air caught my attention. Familiar, strong. Deeply strong. Reminding me of …

Before I could finish that thought, a stab, sharp and piercing was at my neck.

bite.

Riley Raintree had bitten me along that part of my neck that stretched out to my right shoulder. I tried to struggle against it but he growled defiantly, squashing any hope I had of breaking free of him. A round of gooseflesh coursed over me. He reached around my waist and undid the top button of my jeans to shuck my pants down while his bite intensified. I tried to cry out but succeeded in only producing a whimper. It hurt; his teeth seared like a white-hot poker, yet somehow I endured it. The heat from the grip of his teeth upon my flesh only succeeded in making me want him more. A second or two later and I realized he had undone his own pants; his cock was pressing for entry on my backside, sliding between the cleft of my ass. The tip of his cock was very slick; I could feel him dripping heavily along the back of my leg. He growled deeply. He curled his hands up along my torso to grip my shoulders and with one very long thrust he burrowed his way into me.

My mind exploded in a burst of color and intensity that I nearly collapsed under the weight of it all. I had nothing to compare it to, no way to rationalize what was happening to me. He was rending me in two. I was being shredded raw and yet, I still held my ground. Then, like a flash of lightning with his next thrust into me, it came to me.

Riley and I was having sex.

I know I should’ve know’d what was goin’ on but having never done it before, I was at a loss on what it was when it happened. But I knew now.

I keened, loudly — a howl from somewhere deep within reverberated and made the trees rattle. My throat burned with that howl. I was on fire. I heard some wildlife scurry away from us. A few more thrusts and I realized that this was more than Riley fucking me. The bite, the way he was holding me, was nothing short of sheer possession. The nails of his hand brought small welts upon my skin. I didn’t care, it only succeeded in making me want him more. With each snap of his hips, his cock pressing inside of me in a place I didn’t know I had, he was telling me I was his. He leaned me forward so my shoulder came into contact with a nearby tree while he continued to ravage me. I didn’t know it could be like this. It burned, and though it hurt, I found I had enormous pleasure from how he continued to claim me. No matter how much it hurt, I couldn’t think of asking him to stop. I wanted to be his. I wanted Riley Raintree to own every part of me. His mouth, his teeth never relented their hold on me as we fucked. My back was covered in the spittle and blood from the grip he had on me with his mouth. The grunting became frenzied as I could feel him build. The smell of copper lingered around us. Blood, bone, and musk. We weren’t just fucking. He was rutting and giving me all his worth. I gripped the tree, panting with wanting him to bind himself to me. I knew if he finished himself within me I was marked. I would forever be Riley Raintree’s bitch. A very deep snarl broke from his lips against my skin, bringing a new round of pleasure in me. A few hard thrusts later, his hands on my hips, holding so tight that I knew I’d have bruises, we both finally found release.

We both howled, a sound unlike any I’d made before. Guttural, fiercely masculine and primal. Ancient, and very, very dark. The air became still. The forest was quiet. Even the nearby stream seemed to slow its pace a spell.

A second or so after, he relented upon my neck, the blood trailing down my chest and back I was sure. He still hadn’t extracted himself from me. I felt his forehead on my back.

“Am I yours?” I didn’t know why I needed to have him say it, but I did. He needed to say it. He needed to complete whatever it was that we’d just done.

He pulled out and slowly turned me around so I could face him, pressing my back into the tree. His mouth was bloody, covered with my blood, and yet somehow I knew that, too, was all right. It didn’t make no kind of sense. Everything was cattywampus. Tilted. Off-kilter. Yet, the simple truth of it remained.

Riley and I were connected somehow, weren’t we?

He leaned in so his forehead could touch my own, his breath softly billowing against my face.

“No, Hank,” he whispered so softly, I could feel the pain in them. “No.”

Those simple words sucker-punched me worse than any beating I’d ever gotten. I thought I knew of pain. When he said that, I realized how wrong I was about it all. My heart sank; I felt myself inwardly recoil. I started to pull away to bend down and pick up my pants, ashamed for what I thought this was, for what I’d allowed him to do to me. As I pulled them up and began to redress he grabbed my wrist.

“NO!” he bellowed.

I tried to shake his hand off of me but he was so strong, like a metal vice kinda strong. I couldn’t help the tears that were falling from my face. I was so ashamed. I wanted nothing more than to run. Run and run and never come back. Never find peace again. I was so deeply hurt by him, by what we’d done and what I’d allowed myself to think it meant.

“Hank! Listen to me. Hank!” His voice darkened, deepened and vibrated through me. A shrill of the sparrows nearby took off at the loudness of his voice. Then everything went deadly silent.

I stopped, looking down at my feet, though my eyes darted to his exposed cock. I marveled for a moment of how much there was of him, even in that spent state, and how it had all recently fit so well inside of me. He hadn’t even bothered to dress himself yet, his pants still pooled around his ankles. It was a bleary vision to behold through the stream of tears that found no end.

His hands came to my face, forcing me to look up into his eyes. His deep, dark eyes. Eyes I could’ve lost myself in forever and not care that I’d be missed.

“You’ve got it all wrong.”

I nodded, trying once more to pull away. He held me firm.

“Hank! Listen. Please, baby. I need you to hear me.”

The plea in his voice hurt me even more. That he felt pain, pain that I’d caused, cut me deeply. Then like a tumbler in a lock, something inside of me clicked.

Baby? Now that sure as hell got my attention some.

“What I said to you was true. You are not mine. I wish on everything I hold dear and true to me that ’twas that way. But ‘tain’t that way ‘tall. This here’s the important part, are you listenin’ to me?”

I waited, trying to figure out if I should give him the benefit of the doubt I was feeling or not. I finally nodded just once. That seemed to satisfy, so he continued.

“I wish I could claim you to be mine. But it don’t work that way. Though it makes me happy to think that you want it like that. Over the moon happy, Hank. You have no idea how happy that makes me to hear you say that about me, about us. But,” he ran his right hand very softly down the side of my face, a lover’s caress I’d like to think. “It’s me who now belongs to you. That’s why I said no.”

“But uh, what we just done …”

He nodded, the most beautiful smile I’d ever witness played across his face. Even with his blood-stained lips and teeth, I’d take that smile from him anyhow.

“Yeah, I can see how you’d think ’twas me in control there,” he smirked. “But ‘tweren’t like that. I wish ta God ’twas, but ‘tain’t how it works. I am yours. I will be nothing but yours. The guys may think that I am their leader, but really they’ll see that we all will belong to you now. I will be exclusive to you for life. I was hopin’ it’d be like that. And I think you want me to be like that. Don’tcha?”

I leaned down and he let go of me, not sure what I was gonna do next. I reached for his pants and brought them up and fastened them for him.

“Riley Raintree, are you fixin’ ta ask me to marry you?” I said with a quirk to my brow.

He pushed me up against the tree and we kissed for the longest time, smiles breaking out over our lips as we did so.

My Review: 3.5/5 Stars

So this book confused me a little. I had to go back a couple times because I kept asking myself well what just happened. But I want to know what is going to happen next to the point that I started stalking. You know looking to see when this one was published and if something was said about the next book. I didn’t unearth anything, but I will keep my ear to the ground.

I liked Hank and his “boyfriends”, because yeah there were eight of them and I think I was stalking Collins because I wanted the bump nasty scenes that this book eluded to with the other seven or I’ll take some 2-1, 3-1, or even 4-1, but I want the kinkiness of it.

Now to the review.

Henry O’Mallery is your average teenage boy. He doesn’t really want to fit in, but he doesn’t want to be bullied either. The bane of his exitients is the “Pack” as he calls them, but little does he know.

One day everything changes and Henry goes from being picked on to being the most cherished between his ex-bullies. Now he has to wrap his head around the fact that he is well and truly gay and that he has eight boyfriends. Now what is a person to do.

And let’s not forget that his mom and friend are witches and there is another evil werewolf that wants him for his own.

Now all I need is the next book in this series, lets say by this time next month and all the bump nasty my heart can take. (which is a lot, trust me.)

TSoS HO'MO Banned

Author’s Note:

Here is the latest update on my recently banned book on Amazon.

I’ve altered the version offered there and they have accepted it. So under the Amazon banner it is offered as The Shrill of Sparrows as opposed to HO’M,O – though it is essentially the same story. The sex scenes were watered down significantly (to the point where eroticism is seriously in question so I’ve reclassified it as “straight up” romance). There was a rape scene at the end of the book where the bad guy makes his move on our hero and I figured this had to be the crux of the Amazon objection though I couldn’t get them to tell me specifically if it was or not. So not helpful when you’re trying like hell to address it.

Anyway – they’ve accepted the abridged edition (what I’ve chosen to call it). I want to let everyone know that under Amazon it flies under the new title (The Shrill of Sparrows) and there is an offer at the back of the kindle edition from Amazon (only) that if the reader wants the fuller original work they can email me at a certain address I’ve set up and if they provide some proof of purchasing it from Amazon then I will email them the originally submitted work free of charge.

Excerpt:

I’m ready to pass out from bliss as I feel Leo shove his hot, wet tongue right into my hole. His tongue easily glides in and out. I can’t see, but these brothers’ faces must be really close to each other right now. That really turns me on.

What’s the story with these two? These brothers aren’t at all shy around each other. I don’t have a brother, but if I did, I don’t think I could do anything like this with him. Still, they’ve barely touched. I wonder if that’s because it’s too taboo or if it’s because they’ve fucked each other their entire lives and are now bored by it. I don’t know, but they sure have no problem fucking somebody else together and being really close during sex. If they aren’t going to do anything with each other, that leaves more attention for me.

I can’t tell which sensation feels better: the mouth on my cock, the tongue in my ass or the dick down my throat. It all feels so fantastic, I’m surprised I haven’t cum yet. Maybe all that wine is helping me hold back. Matteo feels like he may be close to exploding soon. I suck even harder, hoping to feel his cum fill my stomach. I’m eager to try his creamy Italian dressing. I figure a little ass play might send him over the top. I slowly work my finger into the older brother’s furry hole as we suck each other’s cocks.

“You are a naughty boy, aren’t you Giaco,” he says smiling, letting my cock slip out of his mouth. When I try to put a second finger in, Matteo groans hard and then pulls away before he can cum. He gets up off me and stands up. His huge cock looks like an overfilled red water balloon.

“You get me too close to finish,” he explains. “I don’t want to finish. I like you and my brother likes you.”

“I like you guys too,” I shoot back. The hard, wet cock bouncing on my stomach says it better than I do.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

Ok so I don’t even know how I am going to review this properly.

There is a lot of sex, I am talking about every chapter Jake is either having sex or he is thinking something sexual, or he is jerking off. I went into this book with completely different expectations. Sure I knew it would be a huge amount of sex, but hot damn. Ok enough about sex.

The underling storyline was actually good. You have Jake thinking he is going to school abroad, but what he really is doing is becoming a spy. To successfully complete his mission, he needs to blend in and boy does he do that, but when it’s time for him to catch the bad guy, the flipping twist that happened in this story threw me for a complete loop. I swear to beans I did not see that coming..

So if you like a story with sex galore and a good secondary story this book is for you.

I’m not really big on severe amounts of sex, but I actually want to know what will happen next with Jake.

Blog Tour: The Protector by Jessie G.

The Protector Tour Banner

The Protector Final - 700H

The Protector (Sizzling Miami #3)

Publication Date: February 13th. 2015

Genre: M/M, Erotic, Romance, BDSM

Synopsis:

There was a time when Master Saul Alvarez filled his days fighting and his nights teaching willing subs the pleasure of his whip. His compassionate understanding of the masochist mind makes him the most sought after professional sadist in the Miami BDSM community. Neither role invites long term relationships, but he’s comfortable with his solitary existence until he is charged with guarding Durango’s prized whore. One look into those terror filled eyes has him vowing to risk it all to save the beautiful man.

Javier Escardo had been praying for death, but never expected the stone cold killer he got in response. One glimpse into those sinful eyes reveals not only the promise of retribution, but a reason to live. Eight years later, free and mostly sane, Javier is determined to take what belongs to him. Saul’s heart. Through hell and back, through layers of pain and shifting realities, that one truth has remained firm. His protector needs saving and he can’t do it alone.

Hidden beneath the public persona, Kyle Jensen is a man who craves to be invisible without being insignificant. He longs to find a Master who will see his need to be taken over without abusing him and a lover who will care about him beyond the sexual games. It isn’t until he encounters the smoldering combination of Saul and Javier that he realizes it was never supposed to be just one partner at all.

Can two battered hearts be mended by the love of a third? Kyle becomes the light to their darkness, and he’s willing to risk his heart for theirs, but when the past threatens Saul, will Javier’s sacrifice destroy them all?

The Protector Tour Banner 2

Excerpt: 18+

If he had to look in those concerned eyes one more second he was going to lose his shit and he didn’t even know why. What he needed to do was get the ball rolling on their forty-eight hour fuck-fest. The clock was ticking and he refused to waste another second pondering things best left un-pondered. “So what’s the prize?”

“The prize?” Damn but Javier was cute with his nose wrinkled in confusion. Kyle couldn’t resist leaning in and rubbing his own against it, causing Javier to giggle. There it was again, boy on the cusp of discovery.

“For the winner of tongue tag, there’s got to be a prize.” Kyle pretended to think about it and rocked back against Saul, willing him into the game. “I know!”

Vibrating with anticipation, Javier pressed in close along his front, rubbing their cocks together and begged, “Tell me!”

And to think, Javier had called him adorable. “Winner gets to ride his cock.”

Saul rocked him forward and he could feel Javier automatically respond. Just like that they were one fluid movement, now if only Javier were willing to roll over and offer up his ass they could be one fluid fuck chain. Though he was content to be the bottom, Kyle just knew being the guy in the middle of Saul and Javier…in this position…was going to rock his world. The whole staged ménage to get the right camera angle usually included a test of his dexterity and rarely came with a satisfying orgasm. This right here, the leisurely seductive rocking felt so intimate and….damn! Focus, he needed to focus on the moment and store that thought away for the future.

“Well then what’s the loser get?” Javier asked.

It was the perfect response. Not that he thought either of them was going to be selfish lovers, but it was always good to get confirmation. “Uhm, I guess that depends. I’m thinking some oral gratification would be a good consolation prize. Does he do that?”

“Saul? Why wouldn’t he?” Kyle had known many a top who thought it was beneath them to suck cock; apparently Javier never had that problem. “He’s really good, too.”

Hot damn! Did Saul suck cock the way he kissed, like he had all the time in the world to enjoy it? Kyle was so ready to experience that! “How good?”

“Like…” Javier chewed on his lower lip as he sought the right words. “Like mind numbing, toe curling, shake you apart and leave you begging for more, good.”

“Well now—” Kyle teased when he felt Saul’s smug smile against his nape. “—it’s not that I don’t trust your opinion, baby, but I should really judge that for myself.”

“Always best to experience these things first hand.” Javier nodded seriously. How was he to resist this pair, really?

“Are the two of you going to talk about it all morning or will there be actual tongue tagging soon?” Saul grumbled. “Not that this hasn’t been amusing, but one of you better make a move or I’m leaving you both here to suffer.”

“Suffer?” Kyle scoffed, “We’ll just fuck without you.”

Faster than he could think of why that challenge was such a bad idea, Saul flipped him onto his stomach and pinned him. With Javier squeaking and scurrying back, and Saul giving him his best early morning glare, Kyle could not find a single thing to regret in his statement. In fact, it was all he could do not to pat himself on the back and whoop out an enthusiastic Hell Yes!

“I would’ve thought a smart pup like you wouldn’t need this spelled out for him. My pups don’t fuck without me and back talk like that will make me impose further sanctions,” Saul warned.

Kyle really wanted to push his luck. If not for Javier watching them curiously, he would have aimed for the back talker of the year award.

The Protector -Poster2

Guest Post:

I’ve written several blog posts for this tour, one of which focuses on Saul, another on Kyle. Writing about Javier has been a challenge for me. He’s a broken man and will often refer to himself as less than sane. There are huge gaps in his memory, the memories so painful that his mind locked them away as a form of protection. He is easily spooked in foreign situations and relies heavily on Saul to keep him functioning.

At the same time he’d give anything to be different. Kyle sees this fairly quickly and likens Javier to a boy on the cusp of discovery. While he’s very much a man, one in his mid-twenties, this is a pretty accurate description. He’d give anything to be ‘normal’, whatever normal means. To be brave, to be self sufficient, to be a fully functioning partner in their triad relationship. To be more like the independent Kyle and to have Saul see him as strong.

It’s impossible to get from terrified to fixed in the span of one novel. Not convincingly and not without insulting the intelligence of my readers. I take artistic license with many things, but never this. You’ll see Javier come far in this book, spread his wings, pop his head out of his shell…because he’s trying. Because he’s reached the point where he’s ready to try. Some of that process was seen in the last book and more of the process will be seen in future books.

My men are a family, their lives intertwined, their stories connected. Javier is a big part of that family—the soft-hearted Mama bear of the house, the fragile brother of the group, the tender lover, the protected child. As we see the other’s stories evolve, you can bet we’ll be seeing him as a supporting cast member.

When I finished writing this book, I knew I would revisit this relationship again. As Javier grows and owns his part in the relationship, it will change all of them for the better. It would be an injustice to these three to call their story over, when in reality it’s only just begun.

My Review: 5/5 Stars

OMG this book was just so heartbreaking. You can feel the pain and love flowing off the pages.

No one should have to go through what all of these men have went through. The relationship between Saul, Javier, and Kyle was epic as Kyle would say. They worked together and knew what each other needed. I was happy that Saul was able to let go and be himself with Kyle and the way that Javier grew with the both of them.

I want more of the badassery. I hope, hope, hope the next story in the series is Chris’ or Liam’s, or all four of them.

Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With two published books and counting, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.

I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.

Blog Tour: Crashing into Love by Gregory Johnathan Scott

CIL Tour Banner

Crashing into Love

Genre: M/M, Romance

Synopsis:

Sean, a single California Interior designer sets his sights on going home after a short business trip on the island of Kauai. On his way back to the States, Sean’s world literally spirals out of control when the flight he’s on takes a course he hadn’t expected and into the masculine arms of Kale, a drop dead handsome pilot with attitude, spontaneous charm, and a hint of recklessness. 

While stuck on a deserted island off the coast of Maui, they discover there are situations worse than the one they’re in. Initially all they have in common are their aversions for each other and their eagerness to survive. When they realize all they have is each other, Sean and Kale set their differences aside, learn to cope with their seemingly tragic situation and find common ground. After a string of mishaps and clashing personalities, their time together proves far from foolproof when they surprisingly get swept into a whirlwind romance.  

The early stages of their engagement involve increasingly desperate measures to conceal their growing affection for each other and by the time Kale confesses his desires, Sean is obsessed. With hormones on both sides roiling and reality setting in, their need to explore each other grows.  

Can Kale hide his interest in the man he finds ideal until Sean is ready? Or will Sean’s hysterical dramatic disposition send him packing? Crashing into Love is a romantic comedy about a quirky courtship, clashing personalities, love, and a developing relationship that turns profound – but not necessarily in that order!  

Kale and Sean are pitch-perfect in this comical romance of unintentional companionship.

goodreads-badge-add-plus-fad3b68d35050280ea55d50f17c654b5

Excerpt:

Making every attempt not to disturb Sean, Kale quietly slithered into the ditch, taking the same spot behind him where he was before venturing out to pee. Moving slowly, he laid back with his shoulder lightly pressing against Sean’s shoulder blades, just so he could feel he was there. The touch comforted him, felt nice to have another man lying next to him again, to feel the warmth of another body, making him feel less alone. Finally Kale’s breathing went shallow and he started to drift off. 

As Sean lay quietly awake, he could tell Kale was getting sleepy, legitimately sleepy. His difficult day of being a superhero had caught up to him. A few minutes later a faint, wheezing snore came out of Kale and he knew for sure the man behind him was out cold. 

Halfway into the night, Sean was chilled, couldn’t get warm no matter what he tried to do. He tossed, turned, rolled over and pulled his knees to his chest that put his body into a tight ball. 

Kale felt Sean’s restlessness as well as a cool sensation emanating from his flesh. He told Sean earlier he’d do what it took to help his distraught passenger survive, and if he needed to lie on top of him like a warming blanket, he’d do it. Kale was a hero like that, a good guy. He’d do just about anything to save a life. Kale rolled over, pressed his warm chest against Sean’s back, wrapped his arms tightly around him and hoped he’d stay there in his arms. He sighed. Damn, Sean felt good in his arms. 

There were a few shudders from Sean, chilled ones, before he settled down and started warming up again. Kale’s cozy hug from behind felt comforting to Sean, a feeling he’d been missing and wanted to always come home to.

My Review: 3.5 Stars

Crashing into Love was fasted paced and showed what two men would do when stranded on an island.

The story was a little confusing. I seriously wanted to know what happened to the plane. One minute they were flying fine, then the next they were jumping out of the plane.

I liked Kale, Sean not so much.  Kale tried to think on the bright side, while Sean was Mr. Doom and Gloom. Crashing into Love put all the other insta love books I have read to shame. Which isn’t a bad thing. Hopefully there will be more of Kale and Sean.

Profile GJS 300x283

Gregory Jonathan Scott was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Shortly out of high school was when he began his longtime relationship with his partner and companion Scott. Having artistic hands, together they pursued building a small business in ceramic art and pottery that quickly grew into the number one distribution center for hobbyists, storefronts and scholastic industries. During that time, Gregory was approached by art magazines to write short articles and educational columns pertaining to the ceramic artistry. After charming readers by his writing style, it ignited his desire to express himself further. From there, it began. Finding a love for writing, alongside his artistic hand, gave him inspiration to design and write M/M romance Novels that captivate and take the reader on unexpected adventures.  

Gregory and Scott are still together and are currently enjoying home life in South Florida with their lovable Shetland sheepdog and a sweet stray cat.

Sight and Sinners cover

Sight and Sinners (Men of London #2)

Publication Date: February 23rd, 2015

Genre: M/M, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

THE MEN OF LONDON From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.

SEEING THROUGH… 28-year-old Draven Samuels has a tragic past, but as an investigator with a high-profile London company he now gets what he wants. Tough, sarcastic, and skeptical, he has no patience for lies and even less for people who waste his time. Even if they’re as beautiful as the wild and dark-haired Taylor Abelard. Especially when they’re talking over the body of a murder victim.

THE DARKNESS Psychic Taylor Abelard is used to people calling him a freak. He can see past events and feel the ghostly vibrations of people close to him who’ve passed on. It’s why he doesn’t get too close to the living. But this time, against his better judgment, despite Draven’s mocking rejoinders, Taylor will get closer than ever before. The mystery surrounding a dead friend will lead the two men down a dark and seedy trail of blackmail and lies. Add in the heartbreak of a family tragedy, and events lead them straight into each other’s arms. By the end of this night, all their demons will have risen—and been banished with the dawn.

Author Bio:

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

Protector Tour Banner 2

The Protector Final - 700H

The Protector (Sizzling Miami #3)

Publication Date: February 13th. 2015

Genre: M/M, Erotic, Romance, BDSM

Synopsis:

There was a time when Master Saul Alvarez filled his days fighting and his nights teaching willing subs the pleasure of his whip. His compassionate understanding of the masochist mind makes him the most sought after professional sadist in the Miami BDSM community. Neither role invites long term relationships, but he’s comfortable with his solitary existence until he is charged with guarding Durango’s prized whore. One look into those terror filled eyes has him vowing to risk it all to save the beautiful man.

Javier Escardo had been praying for death, but never expected the stone cold killer he got in response. One glimpse into those sinful eyes reveals not only the promise of retribution, but a reason to live. Eight years later, free and mostly sane, Javier is determined to take what belongs to him. Saul’s heart. Through hell and back, through layers of pain and shifting realities, that one truth has remained firm. His protector needs saving and he can’t do it alone.

Hidden beneath the public persona, Kyle Jensen is a man who craves to be invisible without being insignificant. He longs to find a Master who will see his need to be taken over without abusing him and a lover who will care about him beyond the sexual games. It isn’t until he encounters the smoldering combination of Saul and Javier that he realizes it was never supposed to be just one partner at all.

Can two battered hearts be mended by the love of a third? Kyle becomes the light to their darkness, and he’s willing to risk his heart for theirs, but when the past threatens Saul, will Javier’s sacrifice destroy them all?

Jessie G Author

Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With two published books and counting, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.

I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.
