Road of No Return is out! :)

Tonight’s the night-or today’s the day, depending on where in the world you are :). We’re always happy to finalize a project and share it with readers, and Road of No Return is a book born out of need to write something we couldn’t find anywhere. We like stories about characters who are far from perfect, who don’t always make good decisions, and that’s exactly how Zak and Stitch are. We have a sequel planned for the future, but also a series of standalone biker books, which will also be published under the Sex and Mayhem banner.

Zak. Tattoo artist. Independent. Doesn’t do relationships.

Stitch. Outlaw biker. Deep in the closet. Doesn’t share his property.

On the day of Stitch’s divorce, lust personified enters the biker bar he’s celebrating at. Tattooed all over, pierced, confident, and hot as hellfire, Zak is the bone Stitch has waited for life to throw him. All Stitch wants is a sniff, a taste, a lick. What follows instead is gluttony of the most carnal sort, and nothing will ever be the same. Forced to hide his new love affair from the whole world, Stitch juggles family, club life, and crime, but it’s only a matter of time until it becomes too hard.

Zak moves to Lake Valley in search of peace and quiet, but when he puts his hand into the jaws of a Hound of Valhalla, life gets all but simple. In order to be with Stitch, Zak’s biker wet dream, he has to crawl right back into the closet. As heated as the relationship is, the secrets, the hiding, the violence, jealousy, and conservative attitudes in the town rub Zak in all the wrong ways. When pretending he doesn’t know what his man does becomes impossible, Zak needs to decide if life with an outlaw biker is really what he wants.

As club life and the love affair collide, all that’s left in Zak and Stitch’s life is mayhem.

biker5_450

Since we started watching Sons of Anarchy, it was clear that a biker book would eventually come along, but we had too many ongoing projects to commit time to it. But one day, we decided to write something short, hot, and relaxing. A little piece of erotica about a biker and a tattoo artist. And then, halfway through, we already knew we couldn’t leave it at that. The first draft of the novel was ready within the next three weeks, and now, the book is almost ready to join the few M/M outlaw biker books out there. We were very surprised when it turned out that while there’s plenty of MC books in the straight romance world,  reading material for the M/M reader is scarce. We now have a few ideas for a series of MC books, but unlike the straight series, it will not be focused on a single club – it simply wouldn’t make sense to have a large amount of gay/bi bikers in a club that wasn’t specifically for gay men. The first book is largely focused on themes of self-discovery, homophobia, and the need to belong. The book will be published on July 19th, 2014.

Guns n’ Boys – coming on September 11th, 2014

22559419

We keep having release-themed posts recently, but Guns n’ Boys will only be available in about three months. It’s a long story, focused on a single couple, that we started writing 7 years ago. Now, after a thorough re-edit, we are ready to unleash it on the world ;) The main characters, Domenico and Seth are involved in the mafia, though in very different ways. We didn’t want to shy away from imagery of violence, abuse, and blood, but there will also be lots of scorching hot sexual chemistry. The first season of the serial will consist of eight episodes, about 20.000 words each. Individual instalments will be released every two weeks. The journey of Seth and Domenico will be a long one, and while we will break a lot of standard romance rules, but we can promise a satisfying conclusion at he end of the road.

We are proud to present the blurb ;)

— Love is sour like a Sicilian lemon. —


The Family is always right. 
The Family doesn’t forget. 
The Family pays for blood in blood. 

Domenico Acerbi grew up in the shade of Sicilian lemon trees ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.
When Seth, the younger son of the Don is kidnapped, it’s Domenico who is sent to get him back. The man he finds though, is not the boy he knew all those years ago. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer.

Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when the Family pulls him right back into its fold after his mother’s death. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate in the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, the venom changes into an aphrodisiac that courses through Seth’s veins. 

Domenico knows his life is about to change when he gets the order to train Seth up to the role of future Don. Seth isn’t made for it. He isn’t even made. But a man Domenico knows he would never have to fear might just be someone he’s always needed.

If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself—with the most intoxicating man he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living. 

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

Themes: Enemies to lovers, mafia, homophobia, assassin, organized crime

Genre: Homoerotic love story / crime thriller

Erotic content: Explicit gay sex, coercion

WARNING: Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.
‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.

UK LGBTQ Fiction meet (and Bristol)

Bristol welcomed us with rain and cold, but our amazing airbnb place softened that blow.

But even drenched, we managed to make use of the day and went to the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. It’s relatively small but has an interesting collection of art and historical artifacts. And, of course, this amazing biplane in the main hall :)

Thankfully, Wednesday was the only day it rained, and for the rest of our stay, the weather was perfect for sightseeing. We were walking everywhere, and this way, we got to see just how lovely the city is. Moving to Bristol is totally on the table now.

We chose to visit Brunel’s SS Great Britain, and we loved it – so much inspiration right there! At the start of the tour, we went underneath the fake seawater (which was thick glass covered by a layer of water) to see the underside of the vessel – this is the place where its size is easiest to grasp. We then saw an exhibition about the history of the ship, only to board the ship itself. A visitor can choose between a variety of audio guides, some of which focus on first class passengers, others on technical details, etc. We were surprised at the cramped space in the cabins, even in first class, and the whole interior is designed to give the visitor a reasonably good picture of the life on board.  The attraction is reasonable price-wise, and so is the museum store. Definitely worth checking out :)

We had to take an extra large suitcase to Bristol to accommodate our swag, but we’re very happy with it – took us three evenings to get it done, but it was lots of fun, especially that out friends agreed to help us :) The ‘sample box’ goes with our book from the UK met memory stick, which is Stung.

The meet was just as amazing as the previous ones we attended. We’ll never stop being in awe of just how much work goes into organizing an event like that. People you meet are more important that the venue, but God, was this venue gorgeous :D On Saturday, we started reconnecting with people we know over coffee and cookies. It’s been great to talk to writers and readers who share similar interests. The numerous tea breaks allowed that, but I think we had the most fruitful discussion during the buffet of banter. We sat at the co-writing table but throughout the hour-long session, we switched topics. I didn’t think this particular subject would be interesting to readers, but in the end, we did have mixed company, and I think it served the discussion. High fives to everyone who participated :D

We loved the entertainment at the Saturday dinner, especially the Songbirds Choir Cardiff - we’re both very sensitive to music so the performance squeezed some wetness out of our eyes ;D Overall, the meet was a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet new amazing people. We already miss everyone!

— One day you’ll be pumping my gas —

Mike Miller’s life has gone to shit. The formerly popular high school quarterback now works at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. The last thing he needs is meeting the guy he used to bully at school and seeing him all sorts of polished up. James is now the proud owner of an amazing silver Jaguar and a self-made millionaire. It seems that the day couldn’t get any worse for Mike, but James ‘Lovelace’ Austin might just turn out to be his golden ticket out of the job he hates.

When James Austin meets Mike Miller, his high school crush and tormentor all in one, working at an old, dirty gas station, it feels as if the stars have finally aligned in his favor. He wants to finally get his revenge on the guy, but when Mike turns out to be gay, the whole afternoon takes a turn for the surreal. Instead of just humiliating Mike at his workplace, James decides to hire him for a weekend at a conference he’s attending. A hot guy by his side is the only accessory James needs to rub his success in the faces of his frenemies.

Only problem is, a gay Mike Miller might be too much of a blast from the past than James ever expected. If James wants his nerdy heart safe from the hunky jock, he needs to keep Mike at arms length. The task would be a lot easier if Mike wasn’t unashamedly hitting on James. Or is it just James’s money Mike is after?
