Blurb:

Rayne Thurston has just left an abusive relationship, and the only thing he wants to do is live a peaceful life. But his new job is anything but peaceful. Rayne’s boss, Colin Edwards, is always on his case and to top it off, Rayne finds himself attracted to the powerful businessman. As the two fight the attraction between them, danger stalks Rayne. Will the two be able to overcome their differences to find their happily ever after?

Be Warned: m/m sex

Excerpt:

Strong hands grabbed Rayne’s waist and pulled him back into a tall, RaynesTemptation.jpgmuscular chest. “You look so damn sexy. It makes me want to fuck you in front of everyone and show them who you belong to,” a husky voice whispered in his ear.

Rayne jumped, his heart thundering. It was Colin! He tried to turn, but the hands gripping him kept him in place. Looking up, Rayne gasped. Colin’s dark hair fell across his eyebrows. Jade-colored eyes were hot enough to scorch the Sahara desert. The steady beat from the music and Colin’s body leading his in a slow, provocative dance melted any resistance Rayne had.

He’d promised himself tonight was about fun. Why should he deny himself the pleasure of indulging in his secret fantasy? Monday would take care of itself, but tonight Rayne was going to follow the sexy CEO all the way to the end.

Losing himself in the music and Colin’s wandering hands, Rayne melted against the body behind him. Colin plastered himself to Rayne’s body, grinding his stiff cock against Rayne’s ass. Rayne shuddered and pushed back against Colin, enjoying the strong arms that embraced him. He’d never felt so sexy before. Colin was awakening feelings in him he’d never experienced before, and he wanted more. Continue reading “New Release: Rayne’s Temptation”

Wednesday Briefs: Blessing in Disguise

It’s a Thanksgiving edition of Wednesday Briefs. Avery worked on a stand alone story just for the holiday. She hopes you enjoy the foreign setting in addition to Cam and Marcus. By the way, she’s been learning Spanish so hopefully her vocabulary is up-to-par in the story!

This week’s prompt was “mashed potatoes.” Trust her, it’s in the story! And, yes, her story comes in under 1,000 words.

Blessing in Disguise

by

Avery Dawes

Twas the day before Thanksgiving, and all was…well, normal, considering Argentinians didn’t celebrate the occasion. Just another working Wednesday.

Why haven’t I heard from Brett? Cam had spent the day checking his email in between meetings, hoping for a message from his sort-of boyfriend back in the States. He’d tried to reach him last night, but no luck. Brett’s flight was due to arrive in Buenos Aires later today. Maybe his cell phone was dead or didn’t have service? Or maybe something worse…like Brett wasn’t coming. Cam felt like a fool, dreaming about spending a cozy long weekend, trying to cement their crumbling relationship.

Cam dropped his head into his hands. “Should’ve known better,” he mumbled Ever since he’d been assigned abroad, Brett had been pulling away. Cam hadn’t wanted to acknowledge it, but the generic break-up email shouldn’t have been a surprise. “Asshole,” he muttered, “at least he could’ve called.”

A knock sounded on his door. “Cam, do you have a minute?” Continue reading “Wednesday Briefs: Blessing in Disguise”

Still Alive, Just Away from the Blog

I’m still here…just haven’t made the time to post to my blog. I’m sorry for neglecting it, but it’s been a rather eventful week.

Work was absolutely crazy! I earned my pay and then some! I really hope this week is a bit more laid back than last.

On a better note, I got good news. Woohoo! (Insert happy dance) I found out that I’ve been accepted to Mercyhurst MercyhurstUniversity’s Graduate Certificate Program in Applied Intelligence Analysis. If you aren’t familiar with the program, here’s a link to it. Now, my fingers and toes are crossed that I get some financial aid. Grad school isn’t cheap! I’m going to start in the spring, and it looks like my first class will be Intelligence Theories and Applications.

So what else have I been doing with myself, you ask?? Not writing (sadly). I’ve been working on my Spanish. Thanks to Duolingo, I’m almost 50% fluent. My hope is to finish up Spanish and start Arabic. Yeah, that one’s going to be quite the challenge! If anyone can recommend a good online program/app, I’m all ears.  Continue reading “Still Alive, Just Away from the Blog”
