New Release–Jake (Single Dads of Gaynor Beach)

 

It’s finally here! Jake is out–in every sense of the word–and early readers are loving it!

A man isn’t defined by the worst moments in his past, but they can be hard as hell to leave behind.

Fresh starts are overrated. I’ve lived in Gaynor Beach my whole life, and I’m damn proud of it. I miss my wife like hell, and a grumpy mechanic may not make the best single dad, but the kids and I are doing okay right here. They’re not complaining—maybe because they’re never home. Teenagers.

Then a fresh start falls into my lap when the hottest man I’ve ever seen has his car quit on him. And if I can’t forget the feel of his arms around me when he rode on the back of my bike…well, nobody needs to know that except me.

But now Micah’s introducing me to worlds I’ve never been a part of before, or even imagined I could be. Worlds with ropes and explosive chemistry and adventures much bigger than our rides in the Southern California sunshine. Being with him feels like the biggest risk I’ve ever taken—and not everyone in town wants us to take this chance together.

I hope we can hang on when the ride gets bumpy.

JAKE is an angsty opposites-attract Romance in the Single Dads of Gaynor Beach world with a grumpy mechanic, a sunshiny high school teacher with a secret, size difference and a few first times, and three teenagers who are more perceptive than their parents bargained for.

Cover Reveal! (Yes, finally! *lol*)

The cover for JAKE: SINGLE DADS OF GAYNOR BEACH!

You might have already seen my new cover, because it’s been live on all the retailer sites for a few days now. I had a post all ready to go on cover reveal day…but somehow didn’t schedule it to publish! Sorry about that–I’ve been running as fast as I can to get everything ready for JAKE’s release, and that means trying to multi-task at 5:30 a.m. before logging on for the day job. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not good at multi-tasking while it’s still dark outside and before I’ve finished at least one cup of coffee. *lol*

Better late than never, right?

JAKE will release on March 29th, and launch a new shared-world, multi-author series featuring single dads! Gaynor Beach is a fictional small town on a Southern California beach, and for real I want to go live there!

Pick up your copy of JAKE at the special pre-order price through March 28th!

A dreamy, half-faraway snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & welcome to the weekend! I hope you’re staying warm (or cool, whatever applies 😊).

This week I’m sharing another snip from Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two. Wes and Eoin are still in the speakeasy, and Eoin just asked what happened to make Wes wonder how kinksters figure out their fetishes. This snip is a little longer than 6 sentences for context and swoon-factor.

 

“Oh. Well. It was an ordinary thing so I’m not sure if it even qualifies.”

“A kink doesn’t have to be exotic. Some folx like to be spanked lightly with an open hand.” Eoin watched for any sign that was West’s kink but saw nothing to indicate it was. You’re baked, and deluded into thinking you can read his lovely mind. “Or it can be as simple as a blindfold or having your wrists held in place during sex.”

That’s it. Restricted movement.

West’s pupils dilated and the skin at his throat flushed a pretty pink. He got that dreamy half-faraway look in his dark eyes again too. For a moment Eoin was tempted to lean in and kiss those luscious full lips, but a heartbeat later he wondered if he was out of his mind.

Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two

How do you know if you’re kinky?

Wes Roberts always thought his need for adventure was only a desire to see the world. After starting a job at a private kink club it becomes obvious he’s not as vanilla as he thought. Less surprising is his attraction to the tall flirty redhead he meets his first night.

Eoin McBride, former Army brat and self-described drifter, relies on his kink and the club that has become his home. Eoin is stunned when the lovely younger man returns his interest. But that’s nothing compared to how he feels when Wes approaches him for guidance in the exploration of his new-found interest in bondage.

If Eoin can stick around he just might be the perfect man to help Wes discover his kink, and maybe even find the love they both crave.

Warnings: this book contains sexually explicit scenes, depictions of the effects of PTSD, descriptions of injuries sustained while in the military, legal drug use, off-page death of a minor character, and the scattering of ashes without a permit.

A questioning snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend! ❤

This week I’m snippetting from my new release, Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two. The series follows men who don’t know they’re kinky through a sexy discovery phase and to their HEAs. Satin Sheets is an angsty and steamy Romance with age gap and a large dose of hurt/comfort.

This is from a scene in Eoin’s POV. He and Wes are in the cannabis speakeasy in the club, and Wes has just asked how someone figures out that they’re kinky.

 

“What seems to work for most people I’ve talked to is to explore what makes you happy, the things that give you peace. It’s not always about sex but it can be. When you have a feeling that something is speaking to you, slow down and listen. You might be surprised by what you learn about yourself. I was. I never expected that I’d get such deep satisfaction from giving another person what they need to be happy, to find peace, even if only for a little while.”

I’m such a lightweight. Two hits and I’m a kinky philosopher.

An awakening snippet…

Hello Snippetteers! I hope you’re well. ❤

This week I’m snippetting from my upcoming release, Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two. The series follows men who don’t know they’re kinky through their awakening (or Awakinkening as the kid says) and their HEAs!

I’ll drop the blurb and lovely cover below, but first the snippet! This is an introduction to Wes and almost for Eoin too, all in a little over 6 sentences. I’m going over a final edit tomorrow so if you see a comma out of place it’s my fault (and I hope it doesn’t hurt too much :)).

 

At the thought of Aaron—his best friend since before pre-school—Wes nearly fell headlong into a panic attack, but the outer door opening distracted him. Distractions didn’t always pull him out, often the effect was the exact opposite, ratcheting up his anxiety until he could barely breathe—forget functioning around people. But the therapists had all told him things would get easier and if that was starting to happen, Wes would be nothing but grateful.

It didn’t hurt that the man who walked in, brushing rain from the shoulders of his coat, was handsome as a movie star with wide shoulders and a graceful neck. Wes loved broad shoulders, as long as they weren’t stand-ins for an actual neck. The man’s dark hair looked blood-red in the subdued lighting of the foyer.

Another association Wes pushed away as quickly as it popped into his head.

A new year new me snippet…

Hello Snippetteers and Happy New Year! I hope 2021 is a great year for us all. ❤

This week I’m sharing from my M/M Romance with a side of kink, Silken Ropes. I’m bringing this novella back because my NaNo WIP is book two in that series. Right now it’s with a beta reader, and if the stars align I’ll release it in just over 5 weeks!

More on that later. For now, here’s a new year, new me snip featuring our Silken Ropes hero, Ross, and his gal-pal and Weight Watchers buddy, Janet. The first line is Janet’s.

 

“Don’t worry. Lightning won’t strike me for saying”—she cupped a hand between her mouth and Ross’s ear and whispered—“‘cocky’ in church.”

“What do you want to bet you’re down this week?”

“Waffling on the number now?” Janet grinned, and they moved forward another three steps.

“Nope. At least two pounds. I bet you one get out of a workout free card.”

Janet rolled her eyes. “You’re supposed to be more helpful than that.”

Silken Ropes by Charley Descoteaux

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 includes on-page sexual assault and 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.

This book was previously published. Portions have been re-written for the Second Edition.

Excerpt:

“So, anyway, Brian,” he said, ending a not uncomfortable lull in the conversation. “I’m looking forward to the ride to airport. I want to hear more about your work, and London, and whatever. But,” he gestured toward the window, “here comes Sonny and Luki and Bear. I’ll get more coffee on.”

He rose, but before he turned toward the kitchen, he faced Brian and leaned forward, kissed his cheek swiftly and softly. He intended to step away, but Brian caught first one of his hands, and then the other, and held them both in one hand.

“Jackie, thank you for that. But what I’d like even more is if you were to kiss me—” Brian lifted the index finger of his free hand and touched his own lips. “—just here. Will you?”

“Yes,” Jackie whispered, and without any conscious decision to do so, added, “Yes, sir.” He leaned forward and touched his open lips to Brian’s, found them soft when he added a bit of pressure, and sent his tongue darting just inside for a taste. They broke the kiss together, but as it ended, Brian sucked and then nipped at Jackie’s bottom lip.

Brian smiled, and after he let go of Jackie’s hand, stroked once over Jackie’s shoulder and arm—a comforting touch, Jackie thought. “Thank you, Jackie,” Brian said, his eyes sparking with something like mischief. “That was lovely.”

And now, the cover!
