I was at Fred Meyer’s today shopping. I must totally focus on my list when I’m shopping because apparently there was a trans person in the tuna aisle. Hmmm. All I was thinking about was the tuna!

But really, I got to the next aisle and the person I was with whispered “did you see that? there was a person in transition over there.” Of course, feeling it was totally normal for people to be trans, I shrugged and went back to my shopping. What’s funny about this is that I live in a very small VERY conservative town. A trans person would really stick out here – except for me I guess. One could land on me and I’d just ask if they’d move aside so I could reach the chipotle sauce!

To be honest, I have written a couple of trans characters – they both inhabit the same story – but never finished the work. I really should do that…. it would be my little contribution to putting more trans-is-normal vibes out into the universe!

In the meantime – AHEM – I have a new M/M box set release that’s HAWT and SEXY for you! Here it is:

About the Book

A single bullet destroyed the dreams of Dr. Jordan Peterson. With his lover dead, Jordan descends into an endless spiral of self-destruction that nearly costs him his friends, his career, and his life. When Jordan finds himself working closely with the aloof Lucas Conover, the investment banker’s mysterious past and unexpected kindness shocks him back into a life and emotions he’d thought lost forever.

The betrayal by the foster brother he’d worshiped taught Lucas Conover never to trust or believe in anyone. Living a solitary life couldn’t free him of the nightmare of his former life; it reinforced his belief that he would never fall in love. When the death of one of his clients forces him to work closely with Dr. Jordan Peterson, he meets a person whose suffering exceeds his own. Though Jordan rejects his effort to help, something within Luke pushes him discover more about the first man to ever get under his skin.

As Luke lets down his guard and Jordan lets go of his pain, desire takes control. Each man must come to terms with past struggles if they are to create a future together. And learning to trust in themselves and love again after tragedy and a lifetime of pain may be the only thing that saves them in the end.

Excerpt

“It’s only been nine months. God almighty, did you expect me to forget him already?” Horrified, Jordan swept his hand across the table, sending the empty bottles and food containers crashing to the floor. “Keith and I were together for almost four years. You haven’t even been with Ash a year; could you forget him so easily? Stop pressuring me to move on with my life. It’s over for me. There will never be anyone else.”

“So you plan on drinking yourself into an early grave, losing your job and quite possibly your friends along the way?” Drew placed a hand on his arm. “I don’t think Keith would expect you to mourn him forever.”

“I didn’t expect to have to mourn him at all. He was supposed to be here, with me.” The tears, always threatening below the surface, spilled over, coursing hot and fierce down his cheeks. It seemed he hadn’t stopped crying since Keith had been murdered. “I can’t get past it. No matter what I do, he’s always there with me, and I can’t let him go.” All the fight and anger left him deflated like a balloon several days after a party. An ineffable weariness stole through him, and he laid his head on his arms on top of the table. “Go home, you two. Leave me alone.”

Without a word, Ash found the broom and dustpan and began to clean up the broken glass while Drew remained seated next to Jordan at the table.

“Look, I understand what you’re feeling. But destroying yourself isn’t going to bring him back. We know you miss him.”

“You don’t understand.” Jordan shook off Drew’s attempt to comfort him. “I’m beginning to forget him. Not only his voice but also the way his arms held me. The way the sound of his breathing calmed me so I could fall asleep every night.” His breath caught in his throat, and a shudder racked his body.

Jordan couldn’t reveal the worst—that he could no longer recall the press of Keith’s lips on his or the sweet sweep of Keith’s tongue in his mouth. The warmth and smoothness of Keith’s skin, once as familiar as Jordan’s own, had begun fading to a cold and distant memory. Sometimes he’d sit in bed late at night and play his voicemail messages simply to hear Keith’s voice. How fucking disloyal a love was he? It had only been nine months, yet Keith’s touch, something he’d longed for every day of his life and sworn he’d never forget, had slipped away like fog in the summer wind. Gentle and swift, leaving no trace behind that it had ever existed.

About the Author

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Excerpt: The Naughty Secretary by Landra Graf

 

“Face the front of the chair toward the window. Then strip.” Typically Kim liked to remove his clothes for him. Something about touching his body, driving his arousal to a fever pitch, but tonight he was being punished.

“No touching tonight?”

“I’m not feeling generous, no,” his Dom replied removing his jacket and laying it across Benji’s desk.

Once Benji’s clothes were off, he climbed into the chair and watched. He liked to watch, almost as much as he liked to partake. Little details heightened his anticipation, made him not as good at being a sub, but so far he’d never had the urge to turn the tables. Being a dominant required the desire to give pleasure; Benji enjoyed taking it far too much.

Kim rolled up the sleeves of his white dress shirt, the movement revealing more of his black arm hair. The action made him look like a gangster, someone dangerous. Benji found himself more eager than normal. The tension in the air, the wave of electricity signaled something devious. Damn, if it wouldn’t happen now.

Kim faced away from him, messing with something in his suitcase once more. When he turned, metal gleamed in his hand, thanks to the reflecting light from Benji’s desk lamp. “I found this in a shop in Cali; a little hole-in-the-wall naughty store where people can get their rocks off watching pornos in booths.”

His Dom unearthed a bottle of lube from his trouser pockets and stalked over to the chair. The end of the hook, an eight-inch piece of metal angled and designed to insert into a hole, brushed his cheek, the two inch diameter ball at the end cool and cold to the touch. To the naked eye, someone could’ve mistaken this for a vibrator with a curved end, but Benji couldn’t see any place for batteries. Lord, did he wish they were at his place or Kim’s; anywhere with full access to all their toys and ropes.

“When I looked at it, I knew its perfect place was in your ass.” Kim circled around him, opening the bottle of lube as he went. The first drops that hit his lower back were cold and trailed a tingling path between his cheeks and around his anus. As the liquid traveled lower, he realized the chair would suffer for this.

“Can you put my shirt down over the chair?”

Kim chuckled. “I don’t think so. Whatever consequences you suffer for tonight you deserve them. In fact, I’ll be sad I won’t get to see the cleaning crew’s faces when they look at this chair after we’re done with it.”
