My books, I mean! Happily Ever After is out today - and so is Leather and Newfound Land!
If you've been following my blog, you might have heard me mentioning this book once or twice. Uh, maybe even thrice. I have been a little obsessed with it. So instead of talking more about it, let me give you an excerpt of one of my favorite bits. Mischa and Toby are discussing whether they're losing their touch:
"Really? The mighty Mischa? First you're punishing Tom for ruining your kitchen by fucking him, and now you tell me that there's a sub you couldn't decode. Are you losing your touch?"
Mischa narrowed his eyes at Toby. "That's coming from a man who just punished his sub for smashing an entire crate of scotch by buying the kid contacts."
"He's not my sub, he's my bartender!"
"And your sub. Again. Because you just can't keep your hands off the kid, even though he's all over the place."
Toby groaned. "I know. I fucking know, all right? But it just got too expensive to have him break things, and they were starting to look suspiciously at me when I took him to the ER. And I couldn't make him wear those fucking glasses."
Ben and his lack of motor skills (and glasses) were a bit of an institution at Slake.
"Oh, yeah, you bought him glasses as well."
"Shut the fuck up." Toby took another sip of his beer.
"In the good old days, you would have spanked him until he couldn't sit for days."
Toby looked deflated. "Yeah, I would. Are we getting old?"
Mischa nodded to the room in general before looking back at Tony. "Have you seen some of the kids around here? We're fucking dinosaurs, Toby."
"Yeah. Analog guys in a digital world." Toby sounded glum.
"And it's BDSM 2.0 now."
"Shit, yes." Toby drank another mouthful of his beer. "Do you know what the new guy did to Andy to get him over the abuse?"
"He tied him up and made him talk."
Mischa stared at him. "That was what he did to make the man look so… so smushy?" He had a sinking feeling that the world was moving much too fast around him. Talking was not Mischa's forte. If that was what it took, he didn't stand a chance.
Toby nodded. "Yep. If we get any more outdated, we might as well eat white bread."
Mischa was quiet for a little while. "I eat white bread."
"Yeah," Toby sighed. "Me, too."
Stay tuned; I'll have the story about what actually happened to Toby's bartender up this Sunday as a freebie here on my website.

And now to my other book: Leather and Newfound Land! A naughty little sip about cute dogs and messy boyfriends.
For the 2012-2013 Torquere anniversary, the theme is "Leather Bound" - since the ninth anniversary is traditionally the leather anniversary. Do you think I liked that theme? Oh yes, I loved that theme:)!
I also love the fact that it's all for charity. The charity which will benefit from this year’s Charity Blitz is NOH8, whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest. More than twenty five authors have written short fiction pieces and have agreed to donate all proceeds of the sales of these stories to this year's charitable organization. Torquere Press Inc. will match the authors' donations completely.
So go to Torquere Press or Rainbow Ebooks to get your copy of Leather and Newfound Land. It features a Newfoundland puppy, kinky secrets, and a guy who likes a lobster. Okay, the last thing is a minor thing. On the other hand, it's a true fact, so I just couldn't help myself.
This story has been written from Kristi P.'s wonderful prompt, but let me make it very clear: The lobster wasn't her fault. I repeat: Not her fault.

I read and I write - everything from corporate to kink. My naughty fictional friends are always there to make my life interesting. And pester me, of course. Pesky creatures.
