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.”

Take #office power games to the #domsub #BDSM level with Sexy to Go Spanking!

Office power games anyone? What could be hotter than a Dom/sub romantic entanglement long after the dust has settled on the board room table? One of Sorcha Mowbray’s characters got such a proposition and you’ll love where it ends up! Here’s their initial conversation:

cropped-blondr-submissive-smaller.jpg

“I want you in my bed, Shannon. I’ve done nothing for weeks but imagine your long legs wrapped around my hips as I drive my cock into your wet pussy until we both explode.”

She gasped. Her breath grew shallow and rapid as the pulse at her neck fluttered like the wings of a hummingbird. “Mr. Granger. I—”

“Dalton. After all, I’ve just propositioned you in the most intimate of terms. Before you respond, there is more to the bargain you should be aware of. I want you for the weekend. My flight leaves Sunday night at nine. Until then, you will be here with me. I call the shots. I demand control in the bedroom even more than in business, Shannon.”

She took a large swallow of wine. “You’re a Dom. Aren’t you?”

Excerpt: Mergers and Acquisitions by Sorcha Mowbray

blondr submissive smaller“Are you wearing a garter belt under that skirt?” The impression of straps running the length of her thighs and framing her plump ass had teased him all afternoon. At times he’d been sure of what he saw and at others he thought he’d hallucinated from the desire she stirred within him.

Her cheeks pinked further. “I am.”

All the air left his lungs.

She uncrossed her silky legs and rose. “Would you like to see?”

“Very much. Please, remove the skirt and blouse.” He sat back and waited for her to unwrap his gift to himself.

She unfastened her shirt one tiny pearl button at a time. The silk material slowly parted under her fingertips to reveal lace-covered breasts. A nudge had the blouse floating away to puddle on the floor. Her skirt disappeared much faster as she slid it down her thighs and calves to show the thong and garter that matched her bra. Her waist nipped in before flaring out to luscious hips made for a man’s grip.

He groaned and adjusted his cock in his slacks.

Her eyes trained on the motion, flaring as she took in his state of need.

“Come here.”

Without hesitation, she stepped between his knees. He reached up to take hold of her wrist and tugged her into his lap. As the fleshy cushion of her rump landed against his swollen cock he thanked all the saints for his good fortune. He traced a finger along the lace edge framing her breasts and let it dip into her cleavage. Her nipples puckered to hard nubs. His digit trailed over one mound to flick the hard point through the sexy sheer material. Then he slid his hand up along her neck to cup the back of her head. With a gentle tug, he pulled her toward him and captured her lips in a kiss he’d been fantasizing about for the last month.

Tongues collided to slip and slide in their mingled warmth. She pressed closer to him, her arms snaking around his neck to hang on as though she might float away. She tasted like tea and mint with the butteriness of the merlot they drank. He pulled away from her drugging mouth to regain some semblance of control.

“You’re an excellent kisser, Dalton.” Her husky whisper made his dick jerk in response.

“Sir. You’ll call me Sir while we are having sex. Now, stand.”

She blinked then followed his direction.

Excerpt: Deep Sleep by Eva Lefoy

 

Punishment.” He whispered the word and it floated between us, heating my face until it felt molten.

I struggled to speak as my panties dampened. “Um… what makes you think I want that?”

Zarack’s smile grew wider. “You do realize we’re a telepathic race?”

Memory slapped me across the cheek. Of course. How could I have forgotten such basic research? The Zantarians weren’t telepathic congenitally, but they acquired the technique very young through long years of education. Rumor had it they spent at least a decade in deep, communal sleep during their childhood, probably perfecting their mind-reading abilities. As Zarack was no infant, one could only suppose he had mastered his mind-walking long ago. I shifted in my seat and swallowed. Oh boy. During all those sultry glances he must have doing some serious strolling through the recesses of my grey matter. The idea rattled but also enticed me. “So you’ve been reading my mind while we’ve been sitting here chatting? Picking up all my dirty thoughts?”

He gave a hushed chuckle. “Prishka, it hardly requires mind reading to figure out your needs.” His fingers traced from kneecap up my thigh with light pressure. “You do broadcast your desires rather clearly.”

Zarack started to hum as he caressed me and the sound vibrated up my leg and then through my entire body until every part thrummed in tune with his song. As it went on I entered a different state, almost like stasis, except more conscious – like being dropped into the most majestic whirlpool on the lushest, serenest planet with my senses overflowing. Giving in to the fantasy, my eyelids lowered of their own accord as I sank into the moon-lit clear blue water. “Mmmm.”

“Yes. That’s it.” Zarack resumed his humming, creating an invisible cocoon around the two of us, as though we were the only passengers in the crowded canteen. My head swam, floating on the connection between us growing stronger by the moment and Zarack’s half-naked body coming closer to me every second. The heat from his face radiated over my cheeks, his warm breath tickled my lips. Then, his presence seemed to dissipate into a fine mist and surround me with his undeniably sexy essence. Everywhere the mist touched me I burned for him.

My heart and respiration sped as I desperately sought his mouth, needing to quench this scorching desire. I was on fire and though surrounded by water I needed his touch. I arched toward him, my lips parted to taste of him. I needed to drink him into my being, have him fill every pore to ease this ache his vibrating song teased through me.

Finally his mouth hovered over mine, just a hair’s breadth from the finish line. “Zarack.” I moaned his name breathlessly, both utterly compelled and frustrated by his too-slow approach.

“Prishka,” he whispered, his supple lips whispering against mine. When he finally pressed his mouth to mine and held it, I all but came apart with a shuddering groan.
