New release – book III of Love Hurts out now from MLR Press
When new and impulsive sub, Brian is injured in a bad scene, the incident opens old wounds for his sometimes-Dom, Gar. While doling out revenge, Gar must come to terms with his fear of relationships and learn the shocking truth about his former lover, Angel.
Meanwhile, Paul’s uncontrolled jealousy of Brian comes to light and Geoffrey threatens to cancel their engagement if he won’t get his anger under control. In different ways the aftermath of the sadistic Dom’s destructive force puts these four men on the track to future happiness, but some will suffer more scars than others.
Warning: The MC in this story is baited into a scene of BDSM play and is abused.
EXCERPT – Brian finds another sub servicing Gar at the club:
At the second to the last door he heard voices. One of them deep, even and low. It sounded a hell of a lot like Gar. Throwing caution to the wind, he pushed the door open and took a step inside. He halted, paralyzed with shock at the scene before him.
Gar stood on the dais by the bed, as handsome as ever, exuding pure masculine control while some young dork wearing a collar and a leather Trojan kilt knelt at his feet sucking him off.
Gar’s meaty hand cupped the back of the guy’s head, alternately pulling it away and then snugging it closer to his balls. “Yeah. That’s right. See how that position works better with the collar?”
What. The. Hell? Brian entered the room and headed straight for his Dom. He noticed a third man in the room—an attendant holding a towel—who flashed him a worried look at his approach. “Gar, what are you doing?”
Gar’s eyes widened for a second, then he waved a dismissive hand his way. “Working with one of my subs.” He frowned. “What are you doing here, anyway? It isn’t Thursday.”
Brian took a step closer, tension making his moves stiff. Rising anxiety in his chest stuttered his heartbeat. What the hell was wrong with Gar? The intensity of their last encounter had stamped its mark into every fiber of Brian’s being. It had driven his need higher and higher for days until frustration had forced him to come here begging for more. Did Gar not get that? “No, it’s not, but I wanted to see you.”
“I’m a little busy. Come back Thursday. Thursday’s your night.”
The guy slid his mouth off of Gar’s dick and it hung there, pointing right at the man’s face, clad in its shiny latex condom. “Did you want me to stop, Master?”
“No.” Gar shook his head. “Keep going until I tell you to stop.”
The sub resumed his project, sucking loudly and fisting the end of Gar’s cock. Gar’s shaft was so large the poor man’s hand hardly fit around it.
Brian blinked, trying to understand the scene unfolding before his eyes. No, he hadn’t assumed he was Gar’s boyfriend, but hell, he’d wanted a little more than to be relegated to a weekly time slot. “My night? You have a different sub every night?”
Gar sighed and crossed his arms. Irritation showed in his features, in the way his brows scrunched together like two large hairy caterpillars. “No, not every night. Fridays and Saturdays are still open.”

M/M BDSM writing and research – it’s never boring!
When I set out to write Sex, Ties and Videotape, I didn’t have a series in mind. I was merely answering a call for Valentine’s Day stories from MLR Press. Overjoyed that my story was selected, I forged ahead, adding a light kink twist to the story. I also made it painfully clear that even in light BDSM play, one can be taken advantage of – Brian videotapes a scene Geoffrey and puts the result on YouTube for the world to see!
Note: Brian isn’t a Dom and never will be. Feel free to call him a jerk!
But then came the idea for a second book, one that might go some way to cementing Paul and Geoffrey’s relationship and also give Brian a dose of comeuppance for his earlier bad behavior. Us writers like to teach our characters lessons! After all, they say the pen is mightier than the sword. So off I went, plunging Brian into a different world and he becomes Gar’s sub.
Note: One reader said they didn’t believe Brian would go from being such a jerk of a top to an eager submissive bottom so easily. But if they’d met Gar in real life, they would totally understand!
So far, you might be thinking there’s not a lick of reality to any of this made up story twaddle. But wait, you’d be wrong to distrust my instincts so easily. After all, writers like to get into the minds of other people, see what makes them tick, peel away the outside layers and delve into the murky depths. That’s what we ruminate on and it makes for crunchy goodness! But more to the point, in Book III, Dom of Destruction, Gar is a Dom who’s hesitant to get involved in another exclusive Dom/sub relationship because of what happened in the past.
Gar’s former lover, Angel, was a sub whose needs really pushed Gar over his own line.
Repeatedly. In my mind, that leads to depression and guilt and lo and behold, in doing my research after writing the book, I learned that Dom Drop or Top Guilt and depression are VERY REAL problems in the BDSM community. Basically, Angel’s demands for more and more rough treatment from Gar essentially made Gar feel like a shitty person for doing those things to a man he loved. While Gar didn’t do any lasting damage to Angel, he did do lasting damage to himself that it took a long time – and a complete shock – to get over. To find a way to forgive himself so that he could move forward with Brian.
Of course, in storyland, months and even years are condensed into pages. We get a glimpse of the story but not the full force of the pain. Yet we as readers of M/M romance and erotica can empathize with the characters and root for them even when THEY are unaware of how to solve their problems. That’s because we’ve all done our research!
