Pillar in the Snow

Book cover for the fourth book in the Elan Isle series
Part of the Elan Isle series:

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.

This book took the short Corbin's Bend story of Pillar in the Snow and several other bits & pieces I'd written for the same characters (they'd been languishing in a file forever), matched them up perfectly, and then grew with new scenes, new names, and an entirely new backdrop. While there will be BDSM elements discussed and shown, the two characters are more on the domestic discipline side than BDSM.

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.

As Natural As Breathing @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #mm #romance #DD

*waves* Okay, so I’ve just heard about My Sexy Saturday bloghop. Obviously I’ve had my head in the sand since it has been going for 78 weeks. But I’m thrilled to be joining up 🙂
This week’s excerpts are about first dates/first love. I wanted to share with you 7 paragraphs from from Logan & Christian’s first book As Natural As Breathing. Christian has just revealed that he was almost killed in the line of duty because he defended a gay man.

 

*****

 

“Since then, I have been in a hospital in Germany, being patched up, poked, and pained in every way possible. Therapy consisted not so much of getting over what happened as getting over being gay. They were set on curing me of it,” Christian said, a touch of bitterness in his voice. Taking another breath, he shot an apologetic look at the gorgeous man sitting next to him. “So, see, I’m kind of fucked up. I have no idea where I sit on the gay fence. Am I gay? Or am I just attracted to you? ‘Cause damn, that is why I really came tonight, to see if I was actually interested in the man behind the Santa mask, and there is no doubt in my mind I am. So is this a fluke? And if so, I don’t want to lead you along, and yet I don’t think I’m ready to tell anyone, especially my family, that I might be—”
Logan leaned forward and pressed his lips to Christian, placing one of his hands on his cheek, suitably quieting him. As his lips pulled away, Christian opened his mouth to speak again. “Shh,” Logan said quietly, rubbing his thumb across Christian’s cheek. “I understand some of the fear you are going through, though not all of it. I never feared for my life and I always knew I liked men. But as to what you are saying, Christian, this doesn’t have to be a big thing, at least not at first. We can go to Tri-Cities to the movies together. Hell, I like just sitting and talking to you. You laugh at my jokes.” He winked. “You have no idea how rare that is.”
Sighing in relief, Christian truly looked at the man just three inches away from him, the man he hoped would just look normal outside the Santa suit. “You are even better-looking as Logan,” he found himself saying.
Logan flashed him a full smile, briefly stunning Christian. “Why thank you. I spent most of my life as an ugly duckling.”
Christian raised an eyebrow. “I cannot believe you were ever ugly,” he snorted, doubtfully.
Holding up a hand again, Logan dashed off the couch and up the stairs. What was with him and rushing to and fro? A little rattled and far too excited for what was going on, Christian took a moment to breathe. From the moment Logan spoke and he looked up into those beautiful eyes, he was lost. Logan as Logan was…there were no words. He was gorgeous and cute and Christian wanted to just pull him close and cuddle. Okay, so that was a weird thought. And yet was it? His hard-on told him quite clearly how his body reacted to Santa’s alter ego.
And the odd thing was, he knew he would also be happy just sitting and joking around with him. This whole gay thing could get confusing. It felt like a friend with benefits scenario and he couldn’t help but wonder if there was more.
