Happy Tuesday Snippet! Coke/Dillon

"Shit and shinola."

There was water pouring out of the top of the washing machine, the bassets belly deep in suds and the mud room looking a little like a kiddie pool.

Dillon looked around Coke’s shoulder. "That’s not good." 

"Nope." He lifted the lid of his old Kenmore, wincing at the scent of smoke pouring out the top. "Huh."

"Can you fix it?"

"I reckon if I can’t, Steve McBride can." He looked at the mess and tried to figure out where the fuck to start. Maybe by calling Steve now before he’d wasted a couple of hours and killed his back. "You might oughta get them dogs out of here. Pansy eats more bubbles and she’s gonna barf all damn day."

He grabbed a clothes basket and started pulling sopping wet clothes out, grunting at the effort. Damn, those got heavy.

He turned to get the dripping mess out the back door and frowned. "Cowboy? Cowboy, damn it! I asked you to get the damn dogs!"

"Sorry, babe. I was on the phone with Steve. He’ll be here in fifteen." Dillon shooed the dogs out onto the porch and held the door so Coke could plop the clothes on one of the patio tables. Then Dillon got the mop. "No sense in you hurting yourself when we can give Steve work."

He looked at his clown, grinned. "You think so."

Dillon gave him a grin, then shimmied for him. Damn, didn’t that make his mouth dry. "I know so. Come watch me mop."

Well, yee-haw. 

 

Dillon and Coke are featured in the Roughstock series!

Much love, y’all!

AAD Recap: TACOS!

I can’t...

I don’t even know how to bounce and squee about AAD enough.

This is my favorite con all year because there are so many old friends and new friends and good friends. I can’t list them, because sure as shit I’ll forget things and people. 

The best part? Winning a Bookie (BEST HERO, Y’ALL! Go Alpha Call!) and hearing "TACOS" from the audience. 

Don’t worry, I’m going to do a podcast to explain in detail, so everyone can share in the insanity, but for now?

Pictures!

Six Sentence Sunday: m/m paranormal Alpha Beta (working title)

Mai sounded overwhelmed, incredibly honored.

He preened a bit, showing off for his mate. Ash moaned softly, fingers trailing over Mai’s skin.

“Touch me. Yes.” Mai crowded closer, obviously needing more.

The permission to explore was delicious, so he let himself touch, let his fingers trail over Maicoh’s fuzzy belly.

 

Much love, y’all.

Two New Releases Today!

Happyendings510

So, Happy Endings is a collection of m/m shorts from Torquere Press — there are motorcycle cops, cowboys, a pair of interfering kiddos, and a leather-bound stud that is into bartenders. I love all these stories, but I have to admit, Getting Out More is my favorite.

Official blurb: 

Whether it’s cops and cooks, or old buddies who suddenly find out they have more in common than they think, the four stories in Happy Endings take regular guys and turn them into one another’s heroes. These guys like leather, hot men, motorcycles, and exploring a new life beyond what they know.

Stories include Cooking Up Trouble, Tanned, Getting Out More and Hell Bent for Leather.

Deconstructing Channing HiRes

This is the first book in a series of three — this book is m/m and the next two will be m/m/f. This is Bowie’s story. Bowie lost his mates — Channing and Emma — as a young man because he wanted them both. When he finds out that Channing is a chef and a professional submissive in LA and Emma is a burlesque dancer in Vegas, he decides to get them — starting with Channing.

This book was a hoot to write and I’m tickled as hell that the series is started, and that y’all get to meet Bowie and Channing. :D

Official blurb:

When they were young together back in their werecat pride, Bowie and Channing experimented with love and sex, as well as flirting with a threesome with their best friend Emma. Channing and Emma both ran from their needs, leaving Bowie to break away and find his own life. Now a confident Dom, Bowie discovers Channing again through a video of a consummate sub, one Bowie knows he needs to find once more.

When Bowie shows up on his doorstep, Channing feels like a teenager again, all confusion and need. He doesn’t date his own kind, only humans, and he’s not in the market for a full-time Master. Bowie is impossible to deny, a force of nature, and while both men know they’ll have to think about Emma eventually, now is the time to see if they can get to know and love each other all over again.
