When a one-night stand makes Ryan Jessop a casual offer to introduce him to BDSM, he discovers in Jim a skilled Dominant. Sameer Farouk is the right guy at the wrong time, and as far as Ryan can tell, not kinky. Torn between them, Ryan must decide if he’s prepared to gamble everything on one man, or if he’d be better off with a vanilla boyfriend and a Dom on the side.
Yes, I was a bad blogger in December. I’m working furiously on the Blowing It prequel which is coming out this month (Jan 2016). Title and cover coming soon!
2015 was an incredible year. Not only did I emigrate from the UK to the US and get married, I completed my Puddledown Mysteries trilogy with The Poison Pen in April, and started a new series with Blowing Itand its sequel, Balls Up. I have big plans for that world in the forthcoming year. The first prequel, told from Ryan’s POV, will be released in January, with a second and third book to follow.

My first plan was to go the full-on smallholder route and raise my own goddamn delicious sheep if I had to (not as insane as it first seems, some of my family rear sheep and I’ve been around ovine husbandry since before I can remember). Sadly, however, AJ seems a bit… reluctant to rear plump, pretty little lambs and then send them off to slaughter just so I can have a decent Sunday roast. *sigh* So, on to Plan B. Continue reading →

It seems these days everybody has rights, and don’t we all know them? The right not to be offended, the right not to be upset, the right to have what you want, when you want it. The right of religion. The right to bear arms.
Who gave us these rights, exactly? Here I hear a cry of Americans shouting “The Constitution!” but that’s a document made up and written down by men who were claiming those rights for themselves. They weren’t naturally or intrinsically bestowed. Continue reading →
