Throwback Thursday – The Gift

The Gift was my first ever story to be published back in December 2008!

I love this book. I can’t say it’s been a huge success, but I love it anyway. It’s one that makes my cry every time I re-read it. Nicky is such a sweetheart and even though I *know* everything will work out in the end (hell I wrote the ending, so I should know!), there’s one bit where Nicki doesn’t think it will, and it gets me every time.

I know that a lot of people have been put off by the so often done Christmas Spirits theme, which is a pity, because I think people who like stories like Duck! could really like this one too.

This one features the Spirit of Christmas Past. The other two spirits were written by other authors. Each story stands alone. At some point, I am hoping to write my own versions of Christmas Present and Christmas Future.

(Heads up – there’s a (all male) menage scene in this one.)

1. The Gift

Blurb:

Just because Charles doesn’t see any point in making a fuss about Christmas, that doesn’t mean he can’t tolerate Nicky’s passion for tinsel and holly. He’s never forbidden his pet from enjoying any of his Christmas traditions and he thinks that’s enough.

Nicky has one ambition – to give his master a perfect Christmas. He’s willing to do anything to make that happen – even if it means taking risks and asking his master for special privileges – even if that means inviting a third man into their bed.

The Spirit of Christmas Past isn’t used to visiting Christmases that involve quite so much nudity, passion or kinky sex. Leading a dominant man like Charles through the Christmases isn’t easy – and keeping his eyes off the frequently naked Nicky is impossible. Still, all the spirit can do is enjoy the show – because his job is to bring lovers together and fade away inconspicuously. That’s the plan. However, if someone suddenly wants to thank him, who is he to say no?

Throwback Thursday – Different

This week’s look back into the past is only going back as far as August 2013 – but stay tuned for next week, where we’ll be going way back to the begining! This one’s a short story too, but on the positive side, it’s over twice the length of last week’s short story 🙂

I really enjoyed writing about Stuart and Matthew. They’re good guys – guys who love each other.

They’re also guys who really aren’t on the same page at the start of their story – guy’s who’ve yet to get kinky with each other. Neadless to say that changes during the course of the story 😉

94. Different

Here’s the blurb:

Matthew and Stuart have been dating for over five months and Stuart thinks things are going well — right up until the moment Matthew suggests that they try something different — the kind of different that involves bondage, spanking and leather.

Matthew’s been building up to making this suggestion for weeks, dropping subtle hints and hoping Stuart won’t completely freak out at the mention of kink. Now, with his desires out in the open, all Matthew can do is hope that introducing something different will make their relationship perfect rather than destroy it completely.

You can find Different on sale with Amber Allure, All Romance E-books and Amazon.

Throwback Thursday – Home Sweet Home

Since a new Gem short story came out this month, I thought I would start my Throwback Thursday column a Gem from way back in March 2012. I don’t think many of you have this one – Amazon took exception to the bare backside on the cover, which makes it really hard to find through their site.

This story was prompted by an inspiration pic from Chris of Stumbling Over Chaos. It’s a quirky little tale featuring by far the biggest sex toy any of my characters have ever experimented with – the pic of it is after the excerpt…

73. Home Sweet Home

Here’s the blurb:

Jay’s a good submissive. Richard has never regretted taking him under his protection. He’s never regretted deciding that it was time for them to move into their first house together either. The only thing Richard doesn’t understand is why Jay’s been so damn determined to nag him into choosing something for the house.

When Jay comes home to a find a shock in their hallway, he’s about to find out exactly what his master thinks of his nagging…

Home Sweet Home is available from Resplendence Publishing, All Romance E-books and Amazon.
