Blurb:
Brad is crashing in his cousin Stephen's room while he tries to sort out his life. A perpetual student, he still hasn't settled on a major after a half dozen years at University. He loves learning, but so far that's the only thing that's been a good fit.
Dill is a full-time Dom who hasn't found the right sub yet. He's not worried about it -- he figures it'll eventually happen and in the meantime, there's plenty of boys at the Hammer Club who are eager to share a scene with an experienced master.
When Brad and Dill meet at a party at Barney and Devon's house for subs, the attraction is immediate and undeniable and Master Dill feels that Brad is the perfect sub for him. He also believes that as his submissive, Brad will learn the focus he needs to fulfill his potential and find satisfaction with his life.

Another Creature
by Valerie Brundage
Luanne and her husband were planning to renovate a seaside cottage together, but she has moved in alone after discovering Alan's infidelity. Not that she doesn't have sexual secrets of her own. But now, distraught by her loneliness and the mystery of the open sea, her dreams are haunted by the vision, voice, and touch of a tentacled creature, the Melusine of lore that has always been rumored in the region.
Is its unnatural touch on Luanne and the seduction in its voice real? Luanne's lesbian friend Karen comes to console her, and the heat and promise of their past illicit relationship return. But the legend is real, and the Melusine wants Luanne for itself. But Luanne can't resist Karen's sexual advances, and she's not sure who (or what) really loves her, and whose arms will protect her forever.

Everything Anise
by Natalie-Nicole Bates
A Victorian-era vampire living in the modern world, Emigh Bennett’s favorite activity is watching people from the window of her little bookshop. When she spots a woman nearly killed on the street outside her shop, she rushes to her rescue, and she meets Anise.
The proprietress of a little home business called “Everything Anise”, Anise crafts one-of-a-kind perfumes all with a touch of her namesake spice, all with the power to intoxicate and delight the senses. She is smart, sexy, beautiful, and happens to be a little bit different.
Although Anise is everything Emigh could ever ask for and more, she can’t quite figure her out. Anise possesses the duality of an innocent angel and a vivacious vixen. Even if Emigh can ever peel away the multi layers of Anise to uncover the truth beneath, what will happen when she finally reveals the truth about herself?

Aiden has already come out to his open-minded mother, but will Abby be just as understanding?
When Aiden loses his journal, he worries that the secret he is trying so desperately to keep will come out. And if it does, how will everyone react?

Rascan Mallory and Daniel Friday


Inventors Extraordinaire

Present:

 

THE FRIDAY BOX

A revolution in wonder and delight

 

Tired after a long week? Looking for a bit of a rest and relaxation? Let THE FRIDAY BOX transport you to a world of sensuous and luxurious pleasure in ways never before imagined. With THE FRIDAY BOX, every weekend begins with adventure.

 

Not simply a opticon or stereophone craze, THE FRIDAY BOX promises to bring users to peak of satisfaction time and time again. Using patented technology, THE FRIDAY BOX will subdue even the most stubborn of tensions.

 

Nor is THE FRIDAY BOX content to leave you wanting in other regards. Need a security device for while you're away at work? Set it to "defense mode" and THE FRIDAY BOX is guaranteed to teach any trespasser a lesson they won't soon forget.

 

Don't get caught with the Monday blues. With THE FRIDAY BOX, every day will feel like the weekend!

 

Rascan sighed. He wondered how many Friday had printed despite Rascan's protests that they needed a few more months of testing. Not that they hadn't been testing it endlessly since that first time, but this was to be their first joint venture as official partners, and Rascan wanted it perfect.

 

But Friday had pushed, had declared that he wanted to go ahead with the unveiling at the Continent's Fair, the premier showcase for new inventions and Contraptions. Rascan had thought the matter settled, thought that Friday had agreed to wait, but the flyers told a different story. What if they weren't ready? What if they revealed the Friday Box and no one cared? Rascan crumpled the paper and rushed back to the main show room, back to where Friday was to be manning their table with a collection of their work.

 

When he cleared the hallways and arrived in the great sprawling show room, though, he was met by a press of people, everyone crowded forward, preventing him from moving.

 

"Hell and damnation, what's the meaning of this?" Rascan muttered, panic striking him. There was still time to convince Friday not to proceed, surely, but only if he hurried.

 

"Clear a way, will you?" he said, shoving his way through, toward his table, but the crowd only grew more hostile, more dense.

 

"Quit pushing," came a voice from around him, but Rascan kept going, body sliding between annoyed fair-goers.

 

"Wait in line like everybody else," came another voice, and Rascan wanted to growl. A line? For what? What had everyone so excited that they were nearly mobbing the main floor? Rascan made a final push and came through the crowd, within sight of his table, which was…which was completely swamped with even more people, Friday standing there, grin on his face, as he spoke to person after person.

 

Rascan paused, looked back at the crowd he had passed through. They all seemed to be waiting in the same line, the one that started at their table, at Friday's grin. And each of them seemed to be clasping in their hands a familiar flyer.

 

Looking back at the table, at Friday, Rascan couldn't help but warm, thinking of the orders that Friday seemed to be signing out as fast as he could, at the hundreds of people waiting in line. At the ways they would find to celebrate. He smiled, suddenly not sure what he had been so worried about. It was perfect.

 

"Rascan," came Friday's voice from the table, and Rascan looked to see his lover and partner waving him over, a man in a very expensive-looking coat beside him, looking like he could bleed money. Rascan waved back, straightened his clothes, and walked over. If the Friday Box was such a success, just wait until they all got to see the new Contraptions he and Friday had been working on...

Author Extra from CB Potts!!

Undone
By CB Potts


This story is also available in the Exchange of Power Anthology!

Author Extra:

One of the best things about writing shifters is you get to describe your characters both as men and as their animal selves. In the case of Undone, that means wolves.
 
Rusty's character was inspired entirely by this image of a maned wolf from the Beardsley Zoo. Maned wolves aren't technically wolves, but the whole point of being an author is to exercise some literary license. They're found in South America, and they have pee that smells like marijuana, which is proof that truth is absolutely stranger than fiction.
 
I love how he has the shape of a wolf, but the coloration of a fox. Could he be named anything other than Rusty? I think not!

Reuben has never met someone as determined to find trouble as Yves. The guy has this obsession with a set of emeralds, a dead younger brother, and some kind of demon ritual. All of this should make panther shifter Yves a bad bet as a mate, but that doesn't keep Reuben from falling hard. Can he and team Bloodrose keep everyone alive long enough to convince Yves they're made for each other?
Author note: While the story can stand alone, this book is best when read as a sequel to Belling the Cat.

He is counting on everyone to believe that he is the every bit the male he appears to be.

Aiden has already come out to his open-minded mother, but will Abby be just as understanding?
When Aiden loses his journal, he worries that the secret he is trying so desperately to keep will come out. And if it does, how will everyone react? Will Abby be able to cope with everyone knowing that he is transgender? Will his new friends accept Aiden for who he really is—a boy—or will everything fall apart?

It Takes Two
by Theresa Hissong
Twelve years of friendship turns into something more when Eva Porter’s two best friends confess their love for her after a heated night between the sheets. Her only dream over the years had been to be the woman for Max and Sam. Living a ménage lifestyle was new to her, but she knew, deep down, that this was what she needed. Eva soon realizes it will take two men to love her completely.
When a threat to Eva’s life presents itself, Max and Sam step up security around their home to keep Eva from being harmed, but the man who wants her dead will stop at nothing to take her out. The suspect will risk everything, even death, to take Eva away from the two men sworn to protect her.

Everything Anise
by Natalie-Nicole Bates

The proprietress of a little home business called “Everything Anise”, Anise crafts one-of-a-kind perfumes all with a touch of her namesake spice, all with the power to intoxicate and delight the senses. She is smart, sexy, beautiful, and happens to be a little bit different.
Although Anise is everything Emigh could ever ask for and more, she can’t quite figure her out. Anise possesses the duality of an innocent angel and a vivacious vixen. Even if Emigh can ever peel away the multi layers of Anise to uncover the truth beneath, what will happen when she finally reveals the truth about herself?

Inspirations behind Wolf Creek

Some of the best romances I’ve ever read have been the most torturous on the main couple. There’s just something so rewarding about that first kiss or finally saying those three little words - whether they be 'I love you' or 'I want you' - when two people have gone through hell and back to be together. Nothing is more tantalizing than the forbidden.
I’ve always had a soft spot of m/m romances, especially ones that are set in some pretty testosterone-filled settings. You might get me to admit to reading m/m fanfiction. I’ve even dabbled with m/m erotica – check out Boson’s Mate in Valves and Vixens. When J.R. Ward published Lover at Last, I knew I needed to write a novel with a gay central couple. I’m a die-hard Qhuay shipper. Qhuinn and Blaylock’s romance was heart-wrenching.
After many years obsessed with vampires, I became interested in werewolves. I was particularly intrigued by the idea of what it would be like to be a gay omega werewolf. An omega wolf is supposed to be the runt of the pack, the last to eat, the one beholden to everyone else. How would this weakest member of the pack find love and happiness in a culture that revered strength?
Patricia Brigg’s Cry Wolf hooked me on the idea that an omega could be a valuable part of a pack. I began to wonder what would a gay omega werewolf do if he fell in love with strongest, most important member of the pack, the alpha? How would that alpha respond without appearing weak to the rest of the pack?
In Wolf Creek, Josh faces all those questions as he must find his pack’s next alpha to earn his freedom. Now if he can only stop himself from falling for the man who may be the only one strong enough to control New England’s largest werewolf pack.


PS I'm also a firm believer that a happily ever after must be earned. So don't expect any easy romances from Nikko Lee and remember you need to love yourself before you can love another.

Being the Silverbane pack's omega is killing Josh. His plans to escape are foiled when he is blackmailed into finding a new alpha capable of controlling the largest pack in New England before the Amazons cull it. Josh has no clue how he is going to accomplish this task, let alone stay out of the sights of his power-hungry cousin, Bryce, who is convinced he is the pack’s next alpha.
Josh befriends Andrea, an erratic Amazon trainee, who talks to the ghost of her dead mother and has her own agenda when it comes to the wolf pack. When he is rescued by Gavin, a handsome park ranger driven to live in the furthest reaches of civilization, Josh feels a pull toward him that is more than just physical attraction. The three develop a bond that is stronger than friendship and tested at every turn.
With the help of his new family, Josh must find the strength within him to save the Silverbane pack and defeat the evil that threatens to turn them into killers. Only then can he finally be free.

Wait, It's Tuesday??

"Unexpected"
Image © 2015 A. Catherine Noon, All Rights Reserved
So, I farted around today with my daily journal writing, and took a lunch break to fiddle around with some story ideas and browse social media.  It wasn't until I got back to my desk that it hit me:  Today's Not Monday!

o.O...

Happy belated Labor Day to my State-side buds, and sorry for posting late to my across-the-pond and down-under buds!

I don't really have anything clever prepared, but I figured I'd share some photos from my recent lunch walks.  The irony is, today it rained cats and dogs, and Rottweilers and tabby cats.  So these are from the last few weeks.

"Bugle Beat"
Image © 2015 A. Catherine Noon, All Rights Reserved
I wish I knew what this vine was.  It's all over the place, usually covering fences.  It's got a strange-looking pod-like fruit thing, and these long, narrow bugle flowers.

"Bugle Babies"
Image © 2015 A. Catherine Noon, All Rights Reserved
These are the buds.  After I set up this shot, taking my time and making it... just... right...  I realized one of the neighbors was watching me.

Oops.  Time to walk on, missie.

"Lunch"
Image © 2015 A. Catherine Noon, All Rights Reserved
These apparently are full of fluff, like dandelion flowers.  They look like little potatoes and stuff.  Bugs seem to like it.  They hide a lot in these.

What about you, Dear Reader?  What do you like to do at lunch?
