HELP RELOCATE AUTHOR TN TARRANT and her Lit’l Piglet

 

Talon and I happen to be among a great community of authors who have always come together to help support each other, even if its just a prayer or a hug. But sometimes hugs arent eneough. Authors rarely make enough income of their work to be note worthy and rely on other employment to make ends meet.

Now one of our own has been laid off from her job, typically without warning. With winter setting in, its a hard time to cut back on much of anything, though she has, and its still not enought to get by.  And the fear of losing their apartment is creep close.

Her former employer has given her an opportunity to transfer to a new location and be reinstated into full time work, but the option is out of state, and they don’t help with relocation expenses.

So now we are pulling on everyone’s heart strings and Christmas Spirit coat tails, asking you to help.

WIth a goal of $5000.00, Theresa can afford to pay a deposit with first and last months rent on a new apartment, cover the deposits for utility services, cover a rental truck to move her and her daughter, and still have a little left over to fill the fridge up with food. Maybe even cover a few bills until income from her new job starts to come in.

I know times are tough on everyone, and the Christmas shopping is upon us, but please it only take $5.00 from each of us to make a difference.

Twin Talk – Whats new with us

TWIN GOSSIP

So what’s new for the Twins? For starters we have a surprise book release.

BIG SPOON & TEDDY BEAR

is finished and set for release for Dec 4th!

And looky what we have to show you today!

BIG SPOON & TEDDY BEAR’s COVER REVEAL

BIG SPOON & TEDDY BEAR - reduced size

 

For years Gage has been turning men into steel, athletes into warriors of strength, competitors into medalists. But Gage isn’t looking for any more empty trophies, he’s looking for something far more meaningful.

When Gage takes a new job at an old gym, he doesn’t expect his entire life to get a workout, just a change of pace. At first it doesn’t seem like much and about the only plus is the endless view of rugged and well worked man-candy in the form of weightlifters and Strongman competitors that he’d be training and working with. He figures he has it made the minute he walks in the front door in that sense. But in truth, it isn’t enough. He wants a place to set down roots. More importantly, he wants someone to take root with.

Because he’s gay, Gage had always been told to just be happy with what he got, but there’s something about Boomer. A quiet, towering mountain of a Bear that was the gym’s manager who has Gage hoping for more than just daydreaming about the large physique. And that alone promises to put a spark back into the life of a lonely, freckled ginger.

You’re never too old for a teddy bear, right?

For those waiting for the next release from the Dominion of Brothers series, don’t panic, I am still working away on it, hoping to stay on schedule for a release at the end of the year. But with the amount of detail on this story it could get delayed until the end of January and released as a Birthday Bash release. However you won’t have to wait as long to get a sneek-a-peek at the cover. It’s coming up very soon.

10678813_1569489113284298_1773473971895426547_nSinaloa, Mexico . . . haunting deserts, hot nights, and vampires, who’ve been there for hundreds of years, watching from the shadows, playing their games, manipulating humans, and surviving at any cost.
Vincent Kuxim, powerful and charismatic, was made vampire by an ambitious leader looking for soldiers to pave his way to the rule of all Mexico. But more than a century later, Vincent’s Sire is looking over his shoulder as Vincent closes in for the kill, ready to claim the title Lord of Mexico for himself.

Lana Arnold is a bounty hunter, smart, beautiful, and determined to chart her own future. So when the most powerful vampire lord in all of North America enlists her help in tracking down a very old and elusive bloodsucker, Lana sees nothing but opportunity. There’s only one catch. The client wants her to take Vincent—a vampire she neither knows nor trusts—along on her hunt. Then again, maybe it’s herself she doesn’t trust, because Vincent Kuxim is sex walking in a pair of tight black jeans.

Thrown together by circumstance, Vincent and Lana soon find themselves battling an evil they didn’t know existed in a fight that makes Vincent all the more determined to destroy his Sire, seize Mexico for himself . . . and keep Lana by his side forever.

The plot has slowly thickened to a tasty Raphael-Power stew over the course of this series, and no one is quite as enticing as Uber Lord Raphael.   Until Vincent.   Vincent brings his own Uber to the Council table, making the Vampires in America series put readers on notice.

While none of the Vampire Lords made or in the making over the course of this series have been lacking, neither have any had the individual standing of Raphael – at least for this reader.  Vincent brings a younger, fresher (by several hundred years) but every bit as impressive je ne sais quoi to the burgeoning North American Alliance, and don’t it make your brown eyes blue?!

Similarly, his human mate, thoughtfully “provided” by Cyn and Raphael, has some very Cyn-esque qualities of her own.  Not only does this combination provide another winning familiarity to the romance side of the mix, it seriously ups the ante for the pending power battle.

And you just know the battle will be epic.   And it will leave marks.   And it will be in that very unapologetically vampire way of Ms. Reynolds’ vamps.

No one sparkles in this series, folks.  Well, unless they are going up in screaming flames at the time.  And that is as it should be.   A very hearty recommend, and a very impatient wait for what’s next, starting with the cat-and-mouse game we left the ever-so controlled Raphael tantalizing us with…

Enter the glamorous world of BDSM erotica author and real-life submissive Tara Febreze … lisping sales girls, sabotage by a rival author named Vageena Royale … one Dom with a combover and a moped, another who writes books about his genitalia, and still another who can’t seem to get the hang of the whole “spanking” thing …

Tara Febreze is the bestselling author of Thoughtless Submission and other hot BDSM erotica novels. She’s seeking the Dom of her dreams, one who can make her … clenchy, as she calls it … all while dealing with irate readers who expect the moon and stars for ninety-nine cents, hostile ranting reviewers who follow her to conventions, protestors chanting her name outside a sex shop …

She’s also contending with a string of unexplained goldfish deaths and an embarrassing incident involving a neighbor’s topiary. 

Will Tara find her dream Dom? Get her life together? Publish a book that sells a million copies? Find a Dom who knows how to spank? Solve the mystery of the dying goldfish? Or will she always be … BOUND FOR DISAPPOINTMENT?

Talking Kink n Seduction – Guys vs. Girls: One bisexual viewpoint

Guys vs. Girls: One bisexual viewpoint

 bisexual1

 

I get a lot of questions about my sexuality, not the least being “Wait, aren’t you gay?”

And the answer is No, I am not gay. I am a man, married very happily to another man (he IS gay, but that is not the point.) I am bisexual, which means I like men and women. My marriage didn’t lock in my desires to one gender, it just happens I met a person who makes me very happy, and they happen to be male.

Bisexual_by_xXgabby_louXx

 

 

I still love to look at women, and talk to women and see them in a sexual manner. (No, women are not sex objects; I am making a point about my desires.) My best friend is a woman and she is fucking gorgeous. Since my husband and I occasionally bring others into our bed, I even still have sex with women, and I love it just as much as I love sex with my husband.

This is not to say that I need to be sexually involved with both genders. I do not need it, but I do enjoy it. I am happily married, and we are not polyamorous.

 

938e8f83368605510486fae9b91b09d9.jpg

 

But men and women are different, and here’s where my Bisexuality shows. I like hard men. Manly men. Muscles and happy trails and scruffy chins. RAWR! But I also like soft women. Plush, curvy, a little rounded through her legs and up to her breasts. I like stretch marks and all those perfect imperfections that tell you the story of a woman’s body.

tumblr_inline_n3aioxCg5H1sd08i5

I’m not attracted to many androgynous or Trans people. Sorry. You can still be a beautiful person on the inside, I will still like you, but you probably won’t be my choice in bed partner. That is the realm of PANsexuality, which is another misunderstood area of the GLBTQ umbrella, and it’s not me.

Another question I get is “Why did you marry a man?”

Answer: I love him, we make each other happy.

And the last question I will address today is: “What’s the difference between dating guys and dating girls?”

Whoa. Ok, first keep in mind the kind of people I am attracted to. My “types” involved. The first difference is, GIRLS are higher maintenance. They take longer in the bathroom, their hormones are always fluctuating, they need this whole ritual in Order to go out or have sex or… well, anything.

Secondly, and this is highly personalized here, GUYS are easier to relate to. As a guy, I have a certain way I think and a process to move from one emotion to another. Most guys have a similar process. Girls have a different process that guys are incapable of understanding. (We may smile and say “Yes, it’s ok. You’re not crazy.” But we are LYING.) If I see pizza, my brain goes “Cool. Food. I can eat, sure.” I do not stop to count ANYTHING. Calories, carbs, fat, protein, IDC.

10172712_415826628554776_2136346409_n

Third thing, very trivial, but if something pops in my head as a sexy thing to do to entice my husband, odds are he will find it sexy. Wake up with an erection? Easy: slide his hand over it and (if I’m a good boy,) he will help me with my kickstand dilemma. He looks like he’s working too hard? Bring him a beer and crawl under the table to give him head. That’s a GREAT idea with a guy. Girls? Not as much. They have a different idea of romance.

Another thing is smell. Guys sweat. I run with my husband when I can, and I LOVE the smell of him when he’s done with a workout. Pre-shower. I want all over that, when his male pheromones are floating around and the testosterone is high, I long to crawl over him and rediscover every sweaty inch. (The adrenalin is usually pumping, which ups the sex drive too, so he usually lets me. Win/Win.) With girls, my experience is that you have to shower and re-dress and re-cologne and by the time that’s all done, the adrenalin is gone and I’m kinda tired. (I did just workout after all.) So being with a man, to me, is more sexually spontaneous.

tumblr_n1gsrwkrEw1tu1jgko1_500

Which is not to say I don’t love women. I really do. I love taking the time to romance her on the dance floor, to cook for her and bring her pretty things. I love telling her how beautiful she is and making her believe it every morning.

But the fact remains, they are different.

Vampires drink blood, they’re superior to humans, and they’re sexual Dominants. Every vampire knows those truths. A vampire’s human servant is property, plaything, pawn–and the only living being a vampire can trust. Though she may own him, body, heart and soul, a human servant keeps a vampire from feeling alone in her dangerous, political world. But Kaela has a secret. She’s a vampire with a burning need to submit, to belong to a Master, and definitely not a vampire Master, who will use the advantage for political or emotional domination. But what kind of human male will consent to becoming a vampire’s servant, a 300 year life of utter servitude, to be her Master behind closed doors? An invitation to Eden offers her the chance to discover her elusive hero…and indulge the bliss of surrender.

We are very pleased to issue your Invitation to Eden, an exciting series from 27 of the biggest names in romance. Join us as we take you on an exciting adventure to Eden, where anything—and everything—goes!
Elusive Hero is part of the Invitation to Eden series and a book of the Vampire Queen series.

WOW!! I never saw that coming, never even imagined it. I’ll get back to this but first. . . The Vampire Queen Series was my introduction to Joey W Hill and I know that series inside and out. Joey is amazing with the physical nature of BDSM in her stories but she also uses the psychological side of this lifestyle with expertise as well. Elusive Hero is one of the stories that prove this.

 

As with most of Joey W Hill’s stories I wanted it to continue. They always seem to short. You would think that statement means this is a bad story. I can tell you it is anything but. She has a knack of writing a totally satisfying story that leaves you wanting more. Giving you the opportunity to use your own imagination to take the characters where you want them to go. At least until we get a visit from them in another story. *wicked grin*

 

Joey’s vampires are smart, strong, beautiful and very dominant whether born or made, male or female. So when I heard that Kaela Overlord of the California Territory, a made vampire, had a secret I never imagined it would be that one of those traits would be missing. Before Kaela was turned she was a submissive. This is her secret, not that she was submissive but that she still is.

 

Kaela longs to submit to a Master, not a vampire Master but a human Master.  In the vampire world this is a death sentence or worse. She could become a pawn or slave to a more powerful vampire. She has learned to control and hide this from the vampire world. But as we all know you can only control something you desire for so long. When Kaela receives an invitation to the Eden Resort she is torn between risking the chance to embrace her desires or to stay strong and continue to leave those desires behind.

 

This is where I should tell you a little about our hero Garron. I’m not going to though. Garron is one man/Dom you are going to want to experience the same way Kaela does, one moment at a time.

 

If you have been reading the Invitation to Eden series you know the island and the resort not only give it’s guests the dreams they desire but have also given our authors a chance to take their characters in a direction they may have only dreamed of. Places we reader never dreamed of.

 

Enjoy your vacation to Eden!

The honeymoon is over and it’s time for Sam and Ethan to start the rest of their lives together.
Fate has been kind to the couple so far, but can their luck hold out? Is their relationship strong enough to withstand the challenges ahead?
Fasten your seat belts and hang onto your hats for the final installment in the Matte series.

*Supernovel — 142,000 words*
Warning: Sadism involving real pain, f/f fisting, and the use of toys including canes, floggers, belts, tawses, wax, armbinders, plugs, unusual playroom furniture, and the new punishment warned of during The Honeymoon that gives Sam lots of incentive to submit exactly as Ethan expects.

I believe it is completely fair to say, in two spare words:  IN.  TENSE!  

Okay, three words; add ‘epic’ to the mix because this is a long, full, deep, sometimes uncomfortable and always honest conclusion to this Act of Sam and Ethan’s life together.

I expected certain things to happen in this installment.   I expected Sam’s court case to wrap up and I expected some, shall we say consequences, from the preamble of this particular arc.   I did not expect what did happen, but it fit much better than my idea would have.  Good planning, Ms. Blevins.   I loved that there was no quick fix, and I really, really loved that medically speaking, the course and the lingo were pretty much spot-on.   It rang true and it was skillfully woven with the everyday-life as well as the life-changes that were affecting both Sam and Ethan.

I expected they would pretty much pick up their normal lives upon return from that Honeymoon of Part III.   I did not expect the life-changes that came Ethan’s way to involve Sam quite the way it did.   And while I’m not generally a big fan of Fighter stories I quite enjoyed, if not he actual fight accounts, the training and strategizing that went into them, as well as the characters introduced because of this segue.  

I expected the personal side of the relationship to continue to be explicit and intense.  I did not expect my definition of intense to be so challenged.   I have to admit to a real stretch in my personal comfort level at times, and yet this book is so skillfully and quite beautifully all about the relationship and what it means in its totality to these two loving, committed individuals.   Life is happening around them at a frenetic pace and they deal with it in both recognizable ways, but also in ways that fulfill them as individuals and as a couple.  Instead of their lifestyle being the elephant in the room, it truly becomes simply a part of their life and what they need to make it work for them.

Notwithstanding, I can also honestly say that I have encountered a couple of personal “Not-in-this-Lifetimes”, not to mention at least one “Not-ever-in-this-plane-of-existence”!  

This book wraps up a foursome of Acts that represent the evolution of a couple, but it certainly also leaves the door open to them being prominent in the lives of more of their friends.   I’m looking forward to what the next Safeword (Arabesque) means to Cassie.

I can’t recommend this series enough to open-minded readers as well as those readers looking for a great storyline that also challenges their knowledge and beliefs.   Reading doesn’t get much better than this…

ManCandy honours the Men in Uniform

Whether it’s our enlisted service men or first responders, we owe many thanks to them for their given time, protection, and service for our well being… and we are all the more thankful when they look this sexy in their uniforms

Talking Kink n Seduction – Perfect Imperfections

Perfect Imperfections

 

No matter who you are, odds are you are human which means you cannot possibly be perfect. Whether you are a Dom, a sub, a S/switch or any other label you choose to express yourself, there is no such thing as someone who is Right all the time; Strong all the time; Confident, Eager, Gentle,  or any other attribute at every waking moment. From mentor to mentee, Dom’s pass down aphorisms to every new generation of lifestyler that you cannot expect a submissive to be perfect at all times. That sometimes punishments must be meted out, and sometimes extra care must be taken to nurture your sub as they fall apart for whatever reason they have. Submissives don’t always get that message.

Now sit down if this is a shock, but Doms are not always perfect either. If you are a Dom reading this, know that it’s ok to have your own breakdowns. It’s ok to make a mistake, as long as you realize it and try to rectify your wrongdoings when you are able. It’s ok to have a night where you can’t be the Strong one. After all, whether you practice BDSM or not, every relationship should at heart be about partnership. Helping each other. Completing each other in ways that let you operate as a perfect whole.  If you are a sub, know that it’s ok to be scared during this. Just hold it together long enough to get your Dom(me) back on their feet and then you can both talk about it. Sometimes your Dom is going to need you to hold them while they cry, and that’s ok too. Every person is different.

I know when my Growling Guru is stressed, when work is bearing down on Him or there’s a family crisis He needs me more than ever to crawl to Him and let him pet me while he works. Or make sure he eats. Or screen his calls. Or just pretend to the world that everything is peachy keen so he won’t be distracted any further. I know sometimes he needs me to drag him away and beg for a scene, not necessarily because I need to feel the sweet sting of our favorite toys, but because he needs to release that part of himself that only comes out to play with the first red blush of a firm downward stroke of his arm. Other times he needs me to leave him quietly, or to have his bed ready for him to lay down, warm and boneless beside me. He needs me to support him against all detractors because everyone needs to know there is someone on their side. He needs me to flirt. With Him, with his friends, with strangers we see together. I know these things because after ten years they are still every bit as true as they were the day we met.

By the same token, I need Him. I need him to show me he loves me by word or deed every day. I need him to care about the little things I do to make both our lives easier. I need him to support my choices and counsel me when I come to him with an issue. I need him to have an open heart and to always make time for me if I need it. I need his rules. I need him to enforce his rules over me as I have agreed to them.

It takes a lot of time and communication to know a lot of these things about your partner. More often than not, you learn them through trial and error which can be painful as well as confusing or scary. All of this builds into a rapport you form together with a foundation of trust, compassion, lust, and energy; if you’re lucky you get to call it Love.

 

I know this may seem off-topic, but really; what’s more seductive than someone who understands your needs, in and outside the bedroom?
