Release Day: Silken Ropes: An M/M Romance With a Side of Kink!

The best cure for a broken heart is a Shibari artist.

It took Ross Jensen ten months to lose 98 pounds, but the day he makes Lifetime in Weight Watchers he loses another 220 in an instant when his boyfriend dumps him. He’d never heard of a “chubby chaser,” but he’d been living with one for a year. Ross’s BFF offers him her guest room and drags him out to her favorite sex club. He’s hoping for a little action—or at least a distraction.

When Miles Shigihara is not busy designing meditation gardens, he practices Shibari. He’s looking forward to a relaxing evening at his club, but is captivated by first-timer Ross. Miles doesn’t hesitate to approach Ross and treat him—and a small audience—to a steamy scene.

Irresistible chemistry and a shared love of ropes draws them together, but Ross will need to leave his body issues behind and get comfortable discussing his boundaries if he’s to have a future with the man who’s managed to tie his heart in knots.

Warnings: This book features a corporate sensitivity trainer with an agenda, an awesome gal-pal, a sexy Japanese rope artist, and the unconventional sex club of my dreams.

Budget Book Rec: Shameless Self Promotion!

Over the past week & change I’ve been taking a class and learning how to market my work better and reach more readers. It’s been a challenge, and sometimes fun, and a LOT of new information every day—which is great!—but all that has left me with no time to find a budget book to rec this week. I’ve been reading (and working on my March 6th release!) but mostly paperbacks so I can get away from a screen for a little while. It’s been fun re-reading some favorites from my bookshelves and I recommend doing that once in a while, if you don’t already.

So. Today I’m going to plug my own budget book, the first Buchanan House Love Story, Buchanan House. It’s $0.99, so you can meet the family without breaking the bank. For the 2nd Edition I’ve combined Buchanan House and Pride Weekend into a single volume, so you get two full stories for that dollar!

I’m not going to quote from the book or tell you what I like about it—beyond that it’s chock full of hurt / comfort, which is my favorite trope! All the books in the series have different tropes, but most also have an element of hurt / comfort. Click any of the book covers in this post (or a buy link, of course!) and you can decide for yourself which quote stands out or if you love the characters (spoiler alert: I love them all!).

Stay tuned, I’ll have another budget book rec next Wednesday. Coming soon in this space: info about a Valentine’s Day giveaway in my author group, and more updates on my March release!

Thanks for reading & have a great week!

Buchanan House

Eric Allen and his bestie buy a neglected hotel on the scenic Oregon coast to fulfill their middle-school dreams of co-owning a B&B. The building is in decent shape but in order to turn Buchanan House into the gay resort of their dreams, it’s going to need work.

Tim Tate is a skilled carpenter with many hidden talents, and a body that could grace the pages of a fitness magazine. When he and Eric meet, it’s mutual lust at first sight. Despite the intense attraction, both men are hesitant to fully out themselves by acting on it. But when they give in, it’s obvious that they’ve found something special—and not only in bed.

Before Eric can be free to love the gorgeous handyman they have to make it through the July4th grand opening. With rain that won’t stop and a meddling brother intent on wreaking havoc, can the holiday still go off with a bang?
