The Story
Gregory MacGregor is a Highlander, a moody, angry outlaw who calls himself Grier Black. The British crown has taken his clan name, his tartan, his dagger, and his very honor. His mission in life is one of lawless rebellion.
Iain Stewart is Grier’s uncle, a man who has lost both his brother and his beloved wife. He lives apart from his family in the tall dark city of Edinburgh, where he follows his wits and instincts to help the survival of his clan.
On the eve of a revolution, David Campbell, son of a Colonial American printer, falls afoul of occupying Redcoats. He runs straight into the hands of a ship’s captain and a lecherous opportunist. Weeks later, he finds himself in a place of peril far from home, surrounded by strangers who despise all Campbells.
…And all hell breaks loose before heaven can intervene.

Unkilted is a slow-burn, enemies-to-lovers tale with a few twists and wynds along the way. A sequel titled Unbroken is in progress.

Excerpt 

>>>Chapter Eight<<<
Interlude
David was in turn mystified, charmed, saddened, and choked with desperate desire. Long he lay in the pallet, tossing on the hard bed redolent of unseen mountains, cupping himself, wondering at the way his small world had become a universe of possibilities.
I want him to desire me…in a different way from Archer…the way I have sometimes dreamed. In the way of David and Jonathan…the same way I want him.
Once, with his far away associate Alan, he had thrilled to the light touch of another man. That was an infinity ago, in a time and place forever lost, and it had lasted mere moments. This new excitement would not leave his flesh, or his fantasies.
He is to be my trainer, hardly my lover. He comes to this place to find women. He lives and thinks at cross-purposes to my own beliefs. Be careful, David.
But he could not expunge from his mind the thought of touching and kissing Grier Black.
Yes, a black fox. He thought about the words he had read in Shakespeare…Lean and hungry.
Finally, testicles swollen, throbbing with the pain of holding back, he stroked himself until his hands were wet with spilled longing, and then he slept.
~o~
Grier could not sleep. He had unrolled his saddle blanket near Corbie, where his stallion
stood in a half-doze. The large animal would lie down later, when deep sleep pulled him to the fragrant new grass.
He lay on his back gazing at the same stars and the same moon he and David had seen half an hour ago. Then, the sky had shimmered with the kind of light he had rarely seen. It had been a canopy of unknown and unknowable mystery, in a singular moment of peace.
He tried to forget the image of the flaxen-haired young man bent like a crescent moon over a reflecting pool…his comely buttocks flexing in mute acceptance of his own renegade eyes…
Stop, Gregory MacGregor. The lad is an innocent in a world of corrupt men.
Never, in all the years he had desired other men, never before had he made love with his tone of voice and the inflections of his speech, with the silent language of his body. He was too restless, too much in a hurry to find the next moor and drink from the burn that lay just over the next hill. He was always trying to escape…something. Some wayward phantom that had never revealed itself.
Och, he had never showed himself so openly…not until tonight. Now, turning once more
onto his stomach, he cursed himself—again—for his obvious show of lust to a boy who had already suffered the worst of vile humanity.
Let it go. Let sleep come…

wretched working conditions, Aidan believes his noble act will lead
him to a better future. Until he’s reunited with the sweet beauty

secret that could have resulted in her ruin. But as the embers of
desire reignite, and Abigail and Garrett slowly rebuild trust, a

Capone

Fallen Gliders 4

By Lynn Burke

Publisher: Evernight Publishing

Cover Art: Jay Aheer, Simply Defined Art

Release Date: December 20, 2018

#MCRomance #Erotic #Series #HEA

BLURB

Being called a pussy and pansy-ass his entire life led Jeremiah “Capone” Caldwell to join the Fallen Gliders, a motorcycle gang known for its rough ways, hard partying, and womanizing. Not that he needed help with the last. His charming smile and baby blues make it easy to get into the panties of whatever woman he sets his eyes on.

​Except for Helina Bodnar.

The sexy siren is a lawyer, an independent spirit who refuses to bow to someone like the narcissistic assholes from her childhood. Jaded, she judges Capone’s character by the “67” inked on his neck, and although her body wants to let loose with the attraction sizzling between them, she knows he’s no good for her. Giving into lust proves easier than denying sexual gratification, however, leaving one bitter and the other brokenhearted.

When a rat spills Glider secrets to the police, Capone knows there is only one woman who might be able to get them off the hook. Will he be the real man Helina longs for, the one he truly is inside, or will the man he portrays to the world lose her forever?

Capone Banner (2)

ADULT EXCERPT:

She unlocked the door of an office, but I didn’t pay attention beyond anything but getting her alone, somewhere I could give her what I’d denied her before she’d passed out in my arms the weekend before. Through a reception area that smelled like new furniture, through an inner office door, and Helina tossed her purse aside. She turned, but I stepped close, spun her around again, pulling her back against my chest.

I bent enough to slide my hand up beneath her skirt, my face buried in her neck.

No fucking panties.

I groaned in her ear while her pussy coated my hand with wetness as I cupped her. “Christ…”

“You had better deliver,” she said, pulling away.

The dimness of the office barely allowed me to see two large windows with heavy wooden blinds—closed to outside foot traffic—and a very large desk, half-covered with papers and boxes.

Helina hopped onto the edge and leaned back.

I didn’t need a verbal invitation, but dropped to my knees and lifted hers, placing her high heels on the edge of the desk. Her scent swarmed over me, and I leaned in for a deep breath.

“So fucking sweet.”

The first slow lick from her ass to her clit had her cursing. The second, she grabbed at my hair, nails digging into my scalp. “Holy shit.” She gasped as I latched my teeth onto her clit and nibbled. “Oh…”

Smiling, I slid lower again, licking every crease, every indent of her body, lapping up the arousal slipping from her swollen pussy lips. Puffy and quivering, she was slickened enough two of my fingers slid into her tight sheath with ease. I curled my fingers and gently rubbed, finding the roughened spot that lifted her back off the desk.

“God, yes, right there.” She moaned and lifted her hips higher.

“You like my fingers in you, darlin’?”

“Fuck, yes.”

I pumped in and out a few times, soaking up the whimpers panting past her lips. She complained when I replaced my fingers with my mouth, but uttered another lust-laced curse as I shoved my tongue inside of her body.

“Oh, fuck. Don’t stop!”

Lazily, I meandered up through her folds again until my lips brushed over her clit.

“Fuck me with your fingers,” she said, holding my head tight to her.

Only too happy to oblige, I did as told, pressing in deep and rubbing that elusive spot.

“God.” A few curses spilled from her lips as I thrust and rubbed, my teeth nibbling away at the swollen nub, my nose buried in the trimmed hair atop her pubis. Tangy, soft, and sweet, her pussy was better than any candy or liquor.

“I’m going to come.” She moaned the words, her hips rocking up with every thrust of my fingers, her thighs tightening against my ears. Holding me still as if she could stop me from denying her again.

As fucking if.

Helina gasped once … twice, and her back arched off the desk. With a whining cry, she came, her pussy grasping at my fingers in pulsing waves, cum drenching my knuckles. “Don’t. Stop.” She swallowed between the words, a half-gasped, half-moaned intake of air on its heels as I pulled her clit taunt with my teeth. A flick of my tongue over the hardened flesh sent another spasm through her body. “Fuck!”

Cum gushed from her pussy, sliding down my fingers to coat my knuckles and drip to the floor.

I slid my tongue up atop her clit a few more times, coaxing every last whimper from her lips. Her body released my fingers with a wet, sucking sound, and I licked both clean, inhaling until my lungs hurt. A kiss on the inside of each thigh, and I stood, my straining dick pressed between her lax thighs.

Helina sighed, and I cursed the darkness of the office. I wanted to see her face, her eyes. See the satisfaction, the bliss of a sated woman.

I placed my hands on her knees and slid them along the insides of her thighs, pressing between her skin and my jeans to rub my thumbs along my hard length. “You taste even better than I remembered.”

“And that was better than I expected.”

Grinning, I moved back, but she grasped my wrist before I could step away.

“You’re not done yet.”

My brow shot up at her tone, but fuck if her bossiness didn’t twitch my already pain-hardened cock. “That a fact?”

“Mmm.” She sat and grabbed hold of me through my jeans, her grip bringing more pre-cum to my dick’s throbbing head. “There’s no way in hell you didn’t stash a few condoms in your jeans somewhere.”

“I might have one or two.”

Helina released me and sat back, propped up on her elbows. “Get one out. I want your cock in me.”

I bit back my brain’s “yes, ma’am” and offered a cocky grin even though she wouldn’t be able to see me clearly. “Ask nicely,” I said instead, fighting at the discomfort of the alpha male skin I’d been trying to live in for over five years.

I couldn’t see her glare, but sure as fuck could feel it singeing my face. “Sheathe that hard cock and fuck me.”

Twerk
by Isobel Blackthorn
Genre: Dark Romantic Thriller
Desire, a spark, a decision made too fast, and a Las Vegas stripper is
plunged into the depraved world of a psychopath. But is she the only
target of his twisted desires?
Twerk is a page-turning rollercoaster of a ride.”
Addictive and thoroughly entertaining, Twerk sizzles on every page!”
A regular night in a Las Vegas stripper club is rocked when local punk,
Billy, dies having a lap dance. Paramedic, Dwight Creen, is in
attendance. Filled with lust beneath his gaze, Amber follows him out
to his truck. She’s anticipating sizzling romance but her encounter
soon descends into a terrifying and twisted nightmare from which she
cannot escape.
Five days pass and it is Lana’s next shift at the stripper club. She’s
a fly-in-fly-out stripper paying her way through law school. She’s
also Amber’s best friend. Where
is Amber?
What about Billy? Was it an accident? Suicide? Or murder? Finding
neither the police nor the club are taking an interest, she conducts
her own inquiries. Meanwhile, she’s the victim of a social-media
hate campaign and an ex-boyfriend is sending her death threats. Only,
she is sure it isn’t him.
Lana is thrust into a web of lies and deceptions she cannot unravel. Clues
point her every which way and everyone is a suspect. She’s desperate
for the truth about Billy but the person she most needs to speak to
is Amber, who has not shown up for her shift.
A steamy romantic thriller filled with mystery, action and suspense,
Twerk exposes the working lives of Las Vegas strippers beyond the
glamor – the challenges, the rewards, and the risks.

writing is dark, like the psychological thriller, Twerk, which is
based on six years of research and first-hand accounts of dancers

Christmas Magic

Believe Book 2

By Shea Balik

Release Date: December 14, 2018

TAGS: #Gay #Holiday #Contemporary #Romance #LGBT #MM

 

BLURB

Do you believe in the magic of Christmas? Tim Richards didn’t, so why had he thought he could make a Christmas wish and have it come true?

Much to his surprise, he met the man of his dreams when Nick Snow walked into his world and turned it upside down. The life he had always hated was becoming something from a dream and more than anything he could have ever possibly imagined. For Tim, to believe childhood fantasies could come true, was impossible.

Nick Snow tended to only think about work. That was, until he met Tim. He’d never imagined anyone would ever come between him and his career. Now he knew that there was so much more to life than a job.

Can Nick show Tim that Christmas Magic is real?

Warning: This book contains frivolity, laughter, and a lot of sex. Nothing is off the table when these two figure out if their reality is nothing more than fantasy, or if their fantasies can become reality, with faith in a little Christmas Magic.

Magic Teaser 2

Excerpt

Between Nick’s heart stopping kiss and his teasing tone when he suggested they go play, Tim couldn’t help the excitement that built within him.  He was sure this was exactly how it would feel as a kid on Christmas morning.  Well, for those who actually received presents, anyway.

Giddy, he didn’t even bother to stop the laughter that spilled out as they started running once they’d entered the park. The sun was shining, the breeze blowing just enough on his cheek, and the sounds of kids playing only increased the joy that welled up within him, until Tim was sure he was floating across a grassy area of the park.

Near a picnic table, Nick dropped the two bags he’d been carrying and turned to pulled Tim into his arms, spinning them both around.  It should have been stupid and childish, but Tim had never felt freer than he did in that moment.

He didn’t even care who was watching them, which considering it was a beautiful Sunday day, there were tons of people milling about.  And when Nick kissed him, Tim threw his arms around Nick’s neck and kissed him back for all he was worth.

He was too happy to be self-conscious.  Not that he typically was anyway, but then again, he’d never had anyone in his life who’d wanted to show affection in public.  It was a first for Tim and he was discovering he enjoyed being with Nick and not wondering if anyone was paying attention to them.  No.  Not giving a damn if anyone was watching.

This was Tim’s life and if people didn’t like it, they could leave.

“I can’t believe I’m finally getting to do this with you,” Nick said a little breathlessly from the kiss.  “I’ve been planning it for over a month, but something always seems to get in the way.”

That was it.  Tim was sure his heart was melting as it seemed to constantly do around Nick.  The man was the most romantic and sweetest person Tim had ever known.

Curious but also on cloud nine as Nick continued to hold him close, Tim smiled up at the man he was beginning to love.  “Are you finally going to tell me why you dragged me here?” he teased.

Nick grinned at him but instead of telling him, he let Tim go and reached for the black tote that he’d gotten from Klassic Toys.  With a flourish that would put any magician to shame, Nick unzipped the bag and pulled out two plastic wrapped…

Tim gasped.  His gaze going from those packages to Nick’s beautiful brown eyes.  “Are those…?

He hadn’t believed Nick’s grin could get any bigger, but it did as he nodded enthusiastically.  “Yep,” he said with a self-satisfied tone. “Two kites.”

Tears stung Tim’s eyes as his gaze returned to the brightly colored kites in the clear packaging.  “You got me kites?”  There were no words.  No way for Tim to ever express…

“I love you,” he blurted out without thinking.  The moment the words left his mouth, Tim wanted them back, except… he didn’t.  Not really.  It was just that he hadn’t meant to say them so soon, but now that he did, he knew he wasn’t just starting to fall in love with this unbelievably kind and generous man, he was head over heels in love with him.

Arms once more encircled his waist as lips pressed against his in a fierce, demanding kiss that had Tim panting when Nick pulled back.  Those sweet brown eyes stared down at him with so much damn love, Tim knew what Nick was going to say before he said it.

“I love you, too.  More than I ever thought it possible to love another person.”  Then Nick was grinning again.  “Now, let’s go fly a kite.”
