Always Protected

Kace & Falcon have been in a relationship for thirteen years. With Falcon in the military, they've spent more time apart than together. Since they live in off-base housing, Kace hides who he is. When he finds out about Elan Isle, he's excited. Especially when he finds out that not only will their domestic discipline lifestyle be accepted, but that he and Falcon are welcomed for who they are. They no longer have to hide.

Falcon has protected Kace since the night they met. Seeing his love become emboldened by their new town is electrifying. So much so that he decides to come home for good.

Kace knows having Falcon home all the time will be difficult, but he thinks it will be due to his partner missing his life in the military. He has no idea the difficulties will be his. Worries he’s never voiced pop up and desires he’s never considered become all important. While Falcon has more patience than anyone he knows, Kace fears that this desire might be the final straw.

If you're a Corbin's Bend Pride fan, you might remember the short story Pillar in the Snow. This is that short story, given full life as a novel with new characters and a different kink community.

Making His Stand

James Kaden-Scott’s method of coping with fear is escape and when his father tries to force him to do something that could kill him, he takes a job on Elan Isle as their accountant. While he knows the town is kinky, he has no idea what that means. Until the day he arrives.

Alec Rowland has been in the BDSM lifestyle for seventeen years and loves it. For the first time in his life, he craves having a sub of his own. From the moment he meets James, he feels a pull toward him. When James asks him to teach him about kink, he’s thrilled.

Between having his eyes opened to the kink world and trying to find his footing on Elan Isle, James finds himself torn between the old him and the new. When his worst fears come calling, history says to run, but for the first time in his life, he has something… someone to fight for. But those fears are strong, and some of them are real. If he makes a misstep, he could lose everything. If that happens, running may be his only recourse.

All They Ever Needed Boxed Set

This boxed set contains the first three books in the All They Ever Needed M/M Domestic Discipline Romance series.

As Natural as Breathing – Book One
For Christian Darringer, life isn't worth living. Just back from the Middle East—scarred and with permanent damage to one leg—he doesn't think anyone will want him for anything. He didn't plan on meeting someone he can’t stop thinking about. Pulled toward the startling younger man, he begins to question a lot of things—especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan.

Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends, and security. The only thing missing is the love of his life, a love just like his parents have. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help the sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants. His interest in spanking has become a fetish and when Christian admits he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.

Just as everything begins for them, Christian's past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. When it lands Christian in the hospital, he is forced to reevaluate their budding romance. Being with Logan might feel as natural as breathing, but if it costs Christian everything he cares about, is this new relationship worth it?

Took My Breath Away – Book Two
While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian's company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father's relatives in New York. A naturally gregarious individual, he’s used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he doubts who he is.

Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is Gregory, Logan's father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a position he doesn’t expect.

Logan hits rock bottom and Christian runs to the rescue. He saves Logan from New York, but puts their relationship in a new sort of peril. When the dust settles, who will be left on top?

Breathe Each Other In – Book Three
Christian takes to heart everything he learns from Logan's father. As he and Logan go forward in their DD relationship, he finds that he’s willing to not just take on the mantle of head of house, but to embrace it. With Logan graduating from college, Christian takes the next logical step and asks his boyfriend to move in.

Even with the stress of student teaching and trying to figure out what to do after graduation, Logan leaps at the chance to live with the man he loves. The pressure of graduation begins to get to him and the only thing keeping him grounded is the amazing man at his side.

Those closest to them make huge changes in their own lives and when an unexpected job offer lands in Logan's lap, they have to make a life-altering decision. No matter which way they go, they need to give something up. Play it safe and stay home or accept the job and move away from their families? When it comes to decision time, there is one thing they are not willing to part with. That one thing makes all the difference in the world.

No need for words @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #MSS80

Hello, My Sexy Saturday hoppers 🙂

We’re focusing on ‘One Sexy Night’ this week. This is from Breathe Each Other In, the final novel in the All They Ever Needed trilogy.

Once again Logan and Christian have gone away for the weekend to Leavenworth. As both of these men keep saying, Good things happen in Leavenworth. Really good things.

*****
Unable not to, Logan stood and watched, barely containing his desire to attack the man who was currently on his knees drying off Logan’s legs. He could understand that desire as it was one he held for the man in his life; wanting to take care of him and make him happy. “I love you.”
Christian looked up and gave him a look so warm – so filled with love – that Logan’s knees almost gave out. “I love you, too, Logan.” He stood up and tossed the towel to the side and in a movement that forever after made Logan grin like an idiot when he thought of it, Christian swiped one arm under Logan’s knees, and with the other arm around his shoulders, lifted him up, and carried him to bed.
“You’ve been working out,” Logan said appreciatively, feeling the strong muscles holding him.
“I have to keep up with you,” Christian teased lightly, laying him on the bed. Releasing him for a moment, he went to the fridge where they had stashed the small bottle of champagne that had come with the food box. “We need to celebrate.” Without any glasses, he went into the bathroom and grabbed a couple of the cups the lodge provided and brought them back.
Sitting up in bed, Logan held his hand out. Christian handed him the cups and then with movements that said he had done this more than once, he popped the top of the bottle without spilling any and poured each of them a glass. He put the empty bottle to the side and sat next to Logan who handed him one of the cups and wrapped his arm around him. “To us,” Logan said simply, raising his cup.
Christian touched his cup to Logan’s, even as he leaned in and kissed him softly. “To us.”
There was something purely peaceful about being held in the arms of the man you loved, while sipping champagne and lying in bed. Logan was glad they had three days of this. He might not want to ever move again. When Christian put both of their cups on the side table and looked at him, there was no need for words and he leaned in and kissed him.

I knew I loved you @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #romance #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #MSS79

Being that today is Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing some loving on My Sexy Saturday.
I’m sharing from Took My Breath Away, the second part of the All They Ever Needed trilogy. I”ve got 7 paragraphs from their first day back in Leavenworth.
*****
They filled up on candy apples, fudge, and cookies, as well as bratwurst and beer before checking into their hotel. As they walked into the Bavarian Lodge, Logan beamed. “I’ve never stayed here, but I know Mom and Dad have come here before on their anniversary.”

Christian checked them in and they were shown to the Turret Suite. A huge king-sized bed faced a fireplace, and through a little alcove, there was a large Jacuzzi tub for two across from a bench. “Who’s going to watch us?” Logan asked in amusement, making Christian laugh. They walked over to the three windows that looked off the Jacuzzi room and smiled at their view of the little village down below. Turning around, Logan wrapped his arms around Christian and pulled him close. “Thank you.”

Christian did not know who moved first, but their lips touched and it seemed like such a simple thing to undress, discarding his clothes on to the bench even as Logan did the same. As they stood next to one another, everything that had stopped Christian in the past seemed unimportant now and he knew exactly what he wanted to do. “Come with me,” he said softly, grabbing Logan’s hand and leading him back into the main room and to the bed. “Lie on your stomach.”
Logan crawled into the bed and lay down, resting his chin on his arms as Christian went to his overnight bag, glad Jane had made a comment a few days ago about it always being smart to carry massage oil, as you never knew when it would come in handy. He pulled out the new bottle and opened the cap, breathing in the rich musk that escaped. Placing the bottle on the side table, Christian climbed onto the bed and straddled Logan’s legs.
Pouring some oil into one palm, he rubbed his hands together to warm it up and started on Logan’s shoulders. Instantly Logan moaned, pulling his arms down and relaxing. “I knew I loved you,” he murmured as Christian’s warm hands pushed on his tight shoulder muscles.
Smiling, Christian worked on him, from his shoulders all the way down his back. He took a long time on Logan’s ass, realizing that was an area of his boyfriend he had never truly concentrated on before. Something he had been remiss at, and would never be so again. Logan was so incredibly built, his backend was a bit of a surprise. Christian understood now the concept of a bubble butt. Logan definitely had one. And even more, it turned him on. His fingers dug into the flesh, and the moans and gasps that came from the man under him just encouraged him to  keep going. Leaving those beautiful globes behind to move on to Logan’s legs was a difficult thing to do, but Christian did. After all, once he got down to Logan’s feet, he had his whole front to do.
A great thing he discovered about giving such a massage to his partner was that he found out areas he had not realized were so incredibly sensitive to his boyfriend. He never would have guessed that the backs of Logan’s knees were an erogenous zone, but they were. By the time Christian reached his feet, Logan had to lift up his hips to take some of the pressure off his now-erect cock. Ignoring his own prominent erection, as he wanted this to be all about Logan at the moment, Christian finished his back. “Turn over, Gorgeous,” he murmured.
*****


Took My Breath Away

Sometimes taking control is what you need to do and sometimes the best thing you can do is give that control up.

In the summer between Logan’s junior and senior years of college, these two will find out more about each other and themselves than they imagined.

While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian’s company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father’s relatives in New York.  A naturally gregarious individual, he is used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately, the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he finds himself seriously doubting who he is.

Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is actually Gregory, Logan’s father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a leadership position he isn’t expecting.

When Logan returns to a strong, self-assured Christian, it is with complete relief. As discussions turn to domestic discipline and they realize their true roles within their current and future relationship, both of them are able to let their inhibitions go and together their connection grows surprising Logan to an epiphany.

I adore the love my characters exhibit, whether it is with each other or their families. In this little snippet from Breathe Each Other In, Logan is expecting to surprise his boyfriend…only to be surprised in return.
*****
With the high school he was doing his student teaching at being so close to his apartment, he rarely drove to and from so he jogged home, his mind going over the things he had packed the night before to make sure he had everything he needed. Reaching his building, he hit the stairs at a run. Excitement bloomed in his stomach. In just a few hours he would see Christian, they would have all night to be with just each other, and then tomorrow his boyfriend would get a birthday party to remember. Whistling, he reached the top step, already turning toward his apartment when he was jolted out of his thoughts by the man standing at his door.

“What’re you doing here?”

A low chuckle reached his ears even as two strong arms pulled him in for a hug. “Surprise, gorgeous.”

“Fuck,” Logan whispered, hugging him back tightly. “Sorry about that. I was just… my mind was on other things and you surprised me. Let’s go inside.” They opened the door and as soon as the door was shut, Christian pulled him close again, kissing him until thinking was almost an impossibility. What that man could do with his tongue should be illegal.

“Now, that’s a better greeting,” Christian teased. “Sorry to surprise you. I know you said you had some studying to do this weekend but I wanted to see you. I figured with me coming up here you could still study.”

Snorting, Logan shook his head. “Study? Unless it’s your body, baby, nuh-uh.” As he leaned in and inhaled, reveling in Christian’s wonderful scent, he remembered. “Ah, fuck!”

“What?”

“Shit,” Logan said, laughing as he stepped backward. “There’s going to be a house full of people tomorrow waiting to surprise you for your birthday. If you aren’t there, they’ll be the ones surprised.”

Grinning, Christian shook his head. “Actually, the surprise is on you.”

“Huh?” Shaking his head, Logan sat down in his one armchair and pulled Christian onto his lap. Much better.

“I told our mothers after you surprised me last time that I would surprise you next. It was Kimberly who suggested my birthday.”

“Mom suggested—” Logan shook his head as realization dawned. “Devious. That woman is sneaky! I’ve been trading texts with her all week long to make sure things were in order.”

Chuckling, Christian stood up and then straddled Logan’s legs. Ooh, even better. “Well, now, does that mean you don’t have to study all weekend?” he asked, emphasizing the drawl that made Logan go weak in the knees.

“Nope. I planned to stay all weekend if I could, so I finished my assignments that are due last night.”

“Good to know,” Christian murmured, unbuttoning Logan’s shirt. “How much longer till you come home for good, love?”
