So earlier this summer, Stillpoint/Eros sent out a poll asking which of several story ideas I should work on. And the results were a tie between two: A M/F/M triangle/ménage among a group of old friends and another Visitor’s Wedding story — the tale of what Kirsten, Cherry, and Prior got up to while Lea, Sean, and Andy consummated their threeway marriage.
I’ve been working away at Open Door, the triangle/ménage piece — it’s looking to be at least novella length, if not a full-length novel. It’s a lot longer on sexual tension than most of my previous stories — I think it’s going to be hot as hell!
In the mean time, I’m almost done with Handmaiden, the next Visitor story, so I thought I’d share the opening bit — some of which will be somewhat familiar from The Visitor Has Company. Though the complete story features an interracial FFM threesome, this bit is mostly focussed on Kirsten and Cherry preparing bride Lea for her husbands. Do let me know what you think!
Handmaiden: The Visitor’s Wedding, pt. I
Haven’t posted a review for a while, which is rude of me! Just finished reading through this collection by my friend Mary Cyn, so I thought I’d change that:
I read each of these stories as they came out and loved them —Mary Cyn has a wonderful ability to vary from wild comedy to wild emotion, all while keeping things very, very sexy.
There are all sorts of scenes here: an epic fantasy orgy, a happenstance post-wedding threesome that feels like much more, a bunch of brushes with almost-infidelity (and more group sex), and an amazing finale that is satisfying on every level. And tying them all together is the narrator, Kat McKinney, with her tart, touching observations about sex, about love, and about the search for The Guy, with her conversations with her barfly father confessor (where is Nick when you need him?), and with lots of weddings. Even when you want to scream at her for falling into yet another phenomenally stupid situation, you want to hug her and laugh with her. It all feels amazingly real. Kat seems like the kind of girlfriend who you love just to meet over drinks because she makes you laugh (except when she makes you want to cry).
When this collection came out, I read the whole series over and was pleased to find that, in fact, not only did the story arc hold together beautifully (there’s an added prologue and epilogue to tie things together nicely) but in fact reading them together added to the experience. Nice job!
It may be April Fool’s, but I am very happy to say in all seriousness that Stillpoint/Eros has (finally) released the next installment in my Visitor series, The Visitor Takes a Trip! (The delay was all mine — my non-writing life combined with a rare touch of writer’s block to push the story back. My apologies.)
You can order from Stillpoint/Eros or from Amazon (available through KindleUnlimited).
I think you’ll love the story, which follows Lea and her firefighter boyfriends Sean and Andy through the wedding circuit: Andy’s childhood best friend Prior is marrying Andy’s first girlfriend Cherry, and they want Andy to be the best man. Which would all be fine, except that Andy may have suggested that he too is engaged — to Lea. Prior told Cherry, who told Andy’s sister Jessie, who told her and Andy’s parents…
It’s a mess.
How will our threesome survive? What will they discover about each other and about the rural town where Andy grew up? And what is Lea doing with those handcuffs and that gag???
I’ve posted two sneak previews: On the Rocks and In the Pines. Check them out!
And Stillpoint/Eros has asked me to extend this special offer to you folks: if you review any one of my books (on your blog, on Goodreads, on Amazon, etc.) and send them a screenshot or a URL to firstname.lastname@example.org, they’ll send you a coupon good for any Stillpoint/Eros book, plus a download code good for free audiobook from Audible! Doesn’t have to be a five-star review — we expect and respect your honest opinion. Just contact them and share your feedback, and we’ll feed your habit. 😉
I’m sorry for having disappeared so completely; it’s my busiest time of year, and, wonderfully enough, in the middle of all the hubbub had the opportunity to fly off and participate in the wedding of an old friend to her long-time girlfriend — and I realized that, astonishingly enough, it was the first legal same-sex wedding I’d ever attended.
In celebration of their happy union, here’s a little fairy tale — the kind that may not have been in circulation when the Grimms were gathering their stories, but which ought to have. No smut — very Disney-friendly… if Disney’s princesses were gay. And hey! Another wedding story! 😉
A Sapphic Fairy Tale
Once upon a time, in the north, where the rolling plains begin to rise into the mountains, there was a girl with hair as black as coal, and eyes as bright as diamonds, and she was called Brilliante. Her father was a merchant in the town, and her hand was promised in marriage to Georges, the brewer’s son.
Now Georges was handsome and rich and pleasant enough, but whenever Brilliante looked at him, her heart was leaden, and when, on the occasions that he walked out with her, he happened to kiss her, her mouth was filled with the taste of ashes.
So it came to pass that, on the morning of her long-anticipated wedding, Brilliante walked out of her parents’ house dressed in the crimson gown traditional for brides in that region, and passed north along the great river that flowed out of the heart of the mountains. Continue reading
I told you we were shooting to get this launched by the end of the week — and here the week’s just ending! 😀
Everyone has fantasies. Some people are lucky enough to be married to them.
Trey doesn’t mind that his sister is marrying a woman; he just isn’t comfortable that Dianne is marrying Lara, who Trey himself had an affair with before he and his own wife got married. But as the wedding gives way to the after-party, the subject of fantasies comes up — and brings up all sorts of interesting possibilities that none of the wedding party expected.
(MF, implied MFFM. Explicit language and scenes of sexuality between consenting adults. Adult readers only!)
So here’s a sneak peek at the first part of my next story, Fantasy Is More than Black & White. Inspired by Folding Herself In and Mary Cyn’s Wedded Bliss and Plus One, it’s another wedding-themed bit of erotica, this one on the theme of fantasies, it will surprise you to learn.
All these weddings! And it’s only March! 😉
Here’s the blurb:
