Braving the Deep End Blurb:

State Trooper Mike Martin considers himself straight. Until the day he met the sexy southern charmer Beau Abernathy. Mike’s world froze the first time he saw Beau climb from the pool at his local gym, leaving him thunderstruck. He’s never experienced such lucid thoughts, or the chill of desire for another man—did this mean he was gay?

As their friendship grows, so does Mike’s concern. What if Beau kisses him and he doesn’t like it? Beau is too important to Mike to just be a sexual experiment. Worried if he’s even physically able to be intimate with a man—it’s one thing to imagine, but another to act on it—Mike enlists the help of Madame Eve a no-strings gay sex-ed lesson. But Mike gets far more than he bargained for with his romantic weekend getaway. Will Mike be brave enough to face his desires and dive in the deep end, or will Beau’s dark secret destroy what they could become?

Braving the Deep End Excerpt:

Dear Madame Eve,

My name is Mike. I’m twenty-four years old, and I’m straight.

Well, I used to think so anyway.

Since I’m not the sort of guy who posts a random “needs advice” question on Reddit, I’m seeking your professional dating advice.

Life advice, actually.

There’s this girl—isn’t that how all stories start? LOL

Ryleigh’s been one of my best friends since high school. A couple of months ago, we both found ourselves single, and I was depressed after witnessing something unspeakable. After talking late into the night over too many beers, we hooked up. It became a regular thing for a short while, but I ended it for various reasons.

First, I think we’re better off as friends.

Second, she was getting serious, and I don’t want a relationship with her.

I’ll get to the third and biggest reason in a moment.

When I told her sex had been a mistake, she didn’t take it well. We haven’t spoken since, and I fear our friendship is finished. I still don’t know how to process it.

Now for the real reason I cut off things with Ryleigh.

There’s also this guy—and that’s not the way my stories usually start.

The first time I saw him, he was swimming laps at my gym. The gym isn’t a pickup place for me. I work out, and I leave. However, I couldn’t help but notice this guy. I’ve been an avid swimmer most of my life, and I know a natural when I see one. He was effortless in the water.

Then he got out of the pool.

Suddenly, I was watching one of those high-end perfume commercials where the guy gets out of the Mediterranean and every drop of water travels the contours of his muscles in slow-mo.

Something happened to me—and no, I didn’t sprout a boner in the pool area. But the whole world seemed to freeze, and I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t think. I stared at him, though gaped is probably a more accurate description. My heart pounded so loud, I swore he would hear it. I was literally thunderstruck.

It was the purest, most intensely clear moment of my life.

I’ve heard about moments like that, read about them in books, but I’d never experienced one.

After he left the pool area, I swam about hundred laps in a failed attempt to forget the way he made my blood sing but only ended up being late to work.

Oh yeah, I’m a state trooper. I spend every day surrounded by law enforcement. Men’s men, if you will. Can you imagine how unwelcome these thoughts are while living in a world drenched in testosterone and inflated masculinity?

I didn’t want to think about another man sexually.

Yet, the next day, I found myself arriving earlier at the gym, hoping to see him before he got into the pool. Maybe walk in together, hear his voice, or learn his name.

It’s Beau, by the way.

And yes, when he told me, I grinned like a fool and said, “Cool name,” even as I thought, what a cool guy. I didn’t even know him yet! How lame is that?

Turns out, Beau gets to the gym ten minutes before it opens, and he’s always the first customer in the door. Guess who’s now the second?

I didn’t spy on him in the locker room, but I wanted to. Damn it all, I really wanted to. But he’s a big guy—much bigger than me—so I had to show some discretion. I did delay putting on my suit in order to walk to the pool at the same time though. When we met in the doorway, he’d flashed me a smile that made my stomach actually flutter, which has never happened before.

“We keep meeting like this,” he said with a sweet Southern twang.

I melted. I think he was flirting with me.

Anyway, we chatted about swimming. We both were on the swim team in high school and he swam competitively in college. Now we swim to stay in shape. Then we each took a lane in the pool. I wanted to time my laps to end with his, but it would’ve been too obvious, and I didn’t want to be late for work again. After my swim, I watched his beautiful form cut through the water, hoping he would notice I’d finished, maybe turn and smile at me again. He didn’t, of course, too intent on his perfect breast stroke.

I’ve seen him almost every day since. We’ve taken to racing each other in the pool. He’s a far better swimmer, but I’ve bested him a few times. I think we’re flirting. He touches my arm when he talks to me, leans close when I’m telling him something. When I mentioned the tattoo sleeving his arm—a forest scene of rich green that complements his hazel eyes—he let me get close and admire the details. He smells magnificent. Once, I was brave enough to quickly squeeze his biceps and say, “These can’t all be from swimming.” He laughed and playfully jabbed me in the stomach.

It felt amazing.

He’s never said if he’s gay or not, but I think he likes me. Maybe he’s waiting for me to make the first move. Maybe his friendliness is just Southern charm, and I’m reading into it all.

Our friendship progressed from chitchat to getting a drink at the juice bar after a swim. Then we swapped numbers, and now we’re texting. Nothing serious, just casual texts about TV shows we like. A few weeks ago, we started going out for breakfast.

Are these dates?

I have no idea.

I like Beau. A lot. He’s cool, and he’s fun. Seeing him or talking to him is the highlight of my day. We never run out of things to talk about. No awkward silences. But am I capable of being more than a friend?

Could I kiss another man?

Honestly, the thought of kissing him terrifies me to my core because what if I liked it? Would that mean I’m gay? Bisexual? Maybe sexuality is fluid and it’s just Beau who makes me feel this way.

I want to pursue my attraction to him, but then I remember how sex ruined a lifelong friendship with Ryleigh. His friendship has become very important to me, and I don’t want to mess it up. I mean, what if he kisses me and I don’t like it? I couldn’t live with myself if I hurt him in any way.

I don’t want to live with regrets. I want to be the kind of man who goes after what I want.

Yet, I can’t just allow Beau to be a sexual experiment.

He’s thirteen years older than me—which isn’t a big deal—but I assume he’s much more experienced in the bedroom than I am.

What if I’m a disappointment to him? Worse, what if I freak out when things get physical and change my mind? Or regret it all in the morning? What if I’m so awkward and inexperienced he laughs at me?

We’re both rather competitive men, and I don’t think I could face him ever again if any of those things happened.

I need to test the waters. First, to see if I’m even physically able to be intimate with a man—it’s one thing to imagine but another to act on it. And second, I’d like to know what I’m doing so I don’t embarrass myself. What if I’m no good at it?

I can’t use hookup apps or go to local gay bars because everyone knows my family in this town, which is much smaller than it appears. After all, what if this attraction is a phase and doesn’t stick? If I change my mind, I won’t be able to stop rumors, and that could make my life at work a living hell. And for what? One night of sexual experimentation?

Madame Eve, would you please set me up with a nice guy to help me? Let him read this letter so he understands I don’t want strings, and I don’t want anyone to get hurt. I just need to figure out who I am and what I want. If this works, then maybe things with Beau could develop into something more. I can’t risk losing his friendship to find out.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Known and Wanted Amazon New (1)

I don’t know Wendy personally or her work but the blurb sounds interesting, so if you read M/F stories you’ll definitely want to check it out!

Title: Known & Wanted

Author: Wendy Burke

Release: April 20, 2020

Genre: Erotic Romance

Publisher: Decadent Publishing

Cover Design: Fantasia Frog Designs

Known & Wanted Blurb:

Zoe Zimmerman wants to stay out of the spotlight, but years in media and her iffy choices in men has made that a difficult task. Jilted, heartbroken and left in the dust by those she thought loved her, she’s excited and terrified with a gift from her best friend, a 1Night Stand encounter. She hopes to find a connection and a weekend of no-strings-attached adult fun with a man who admires her for who she is and not her past.

Eli Martin is well-known and well-liked. He’s accustomed to taking care of people—his three children, the residents of Birch County as elected Sheriff, and anyone else who may need a helping hand. Regardless of his good looks and stunning personality, his high-profile position means the widower can’t go trolling for a night of sex. When a 50th birthday present from Madame Eve arrives, Eli is greeted with the perfect opportunity to salve his lonely heart.

What neither Eli or Zoe expect is to meet one another—although their jobs provided opportunities for corresponding and phone-flirting for nearly a decade, they’ve never met in person. Will Madame Eve’s magic do its trick or will Zoe’s insecurities and a bullet end it all before they realize they’re known and wanted…and in love

Barnes & Noble:

Known & Wanted Excerpt:

Unaccustomed to sitting at bar, Eli filled his time waiting for his date by contemplating is bizarre adventure gifted to him and, as the norm in his profession, making a study of those around him.

A woman in a corner booth caught his eye. She chatted on the phone, laughing with someone. Probably the man she came here to meet. He kept a covert eye on her, if only for his own curiosity and entertainment.

Her pixie-ish, hair style seemed to ooze melted dark chocolate, swirled with caramel and cherry. Even in the somewhat dim light of the bar, he could tell she wore little makeup. She doesn’t need it.

His training and experience taught him to observe everything, including little nuances which told him, despite her outward happiness, uncertainty and nerves had her on edge.

He looked into his beer, the mental self-flagellation he thought he’d tamped down and dismissed, winked at him from the remaining yeasty foam.

This arrangement seemed perfect for his circumstance, private, consensual, anonymous. He couldn’t go out on a Saturday night for a ‘hook up’ for a myriad of reasons. Due to the nature of his position, on-call meant 24/7/365 and his constituents frowned on drunken, carousing county leadership. And being an elected and sworn officer of the State, he honored the trust Birch County residents had given him and his oath to them and the State of Ohio. And, like his kids said, ‘Everyone knows you, Dad.’

“Excuse me.”

You’re slacking, Martin. You never saw her coming. The woman from the corner booth stood next to him at the bar.

“Sheriff Martin? What a surprise.”

“I’m sorry….” Don’t know who you are, but wouldn’t mind getting to know you.

“No, really, I’m sorry,” she chuckled.

What an adorable laugh.

“We talk on the on the phone all the time, but have never really met.” She put out her hand, “Zoe—Zoe Zimmerman from Channel 8.”

Wow, I had no idea you’d be quite this cute. He rose from his seat. “Zoe, well, what a pleasure.” He shook her hand, taking in her impish smile and bright green eyes. “Have a seat. After all these years, let me buy you the beer we always talked about.”

He’d been phone pals with this local television station—What the hell does she do there, anyway? —producer, reporter, assignment manager, jack-of-all-media-trades for more years than he could remember. Always pleasant, with a constant exuberance in her voice, he welcomed calls from her. Although information she needed, or he needed disseminated eventually got traded, more often than not their playful banter many times was laced with friendly, subtle sexual undertone.

“I’m sorry,” Zoe said. “I’m actually waiting for someone.” A chime sounded from the pocket of her fitted, navy blue blazer. “Oh, excuse me.” She turned a bit away from him, checking her cell.

At the same time, Eli’s phone rumbled on the bar top. He took a sip of beer and touched the screen. Your date, the text read. Eli glanced about the bar, curious if someone spied on him, or if this ethereal Madame Eve had covert operatives stationed in the bar.

But when a second text came with an attached photo of the woman standing next to him, a grin lit his face and he mentally high-fived his great fortune.

When he turned to take a peek at his now-date, Zoe’s big green eyes were wide with shock.

She fumbled for words. “There must be some mistake.”

Guest Post – Deanna Wadsworth and “The Boyfriend Cruise”

Deanna Wadsworth and I have taken part in several Pride events in the past few years together and she is one of my favorite people! So when she asked if she could do a guest post on my blog to promote her latest release of course I said yes.

I haven’t read “The Boyfriend Cruise” but she consistently writes books that are both funny and steamy, so I hope you’ll take the time to read her post and check out her new novel!

Thank you for hosting me, Brigham! I’ve brought along a super special, extra sexy scene to share with your fans.

THE BOYFRIEND CRUISE is the first Pride of the Caribbean Getaway, and a must read for paranormal and contemporary readers. Imagine a gay-friendly cruise ship where paranormals hide in plain sight!

Think LOVE BOAT meets SUPERNATURAL with some steamy love!

And of course a happily ever after!





AmazonDreamspinneriTunesGooglePlayKoboNookFiction DB

The Pride of the Caribbean is a cruise ship unlike any other. Paranormals working on board the enchanted ship hide in plain sight, under the benevolent protection of a demigod captain and his fairy husband.

And this is a shipboard romance unlike any other.

Josh Gilbert’s well-meaning family booked a gay-friendly cruise for Christmas in order to find Josh a boyfriend. Hoping to escape the constant parade of bachelors—and the collapsible fishing rod dangling mistletoe his mom keeps in her purse—Josh takes solace in a growing friendship with the ship’s photographer, Nathan. Though Josh is falling for Nathan, he worries it will never be more than a shipboard fling.

Nathan recently became aware of his incubus heritage and has finally learned how to control his demon side. But Josh has awakened more than just the demon’s need for orgasms—Josh has awakened Nathan’s heart. What’s developing between them is the real thing, but can Josh ever accept Nathan’s promiscuous past… and love a sex demon?

Amid lush tropical settings, family hilarity, holiday costume parties, sexy snorkeling adventures, gingerbread martinis, and mythical creatures, will Josh get his Christmas wish and finally find the true love he’s wanted for so long?

Special Excerpt:

“Wanna come back to my room? Aaron’s at the costume party… and, well….” Josh left it hanging.

Squeezing his hand, Nathan grinned. “I’d love to.”

Innocent man, indeed.

Nathan hadn’t expected Josh to be so bold, especially without Nathan’s incubus lure in play. But he held his demon in check. Might cause an unfixable scandal if Nathan followed through with the scene playing out in his mind right there in the bar…. Nathan dropping to his knees to drink the delicious nectar from Josh’s cock, milking him with his tongue and mouth until the heady power of the man’s orgasm fueled Nathan’s demon soul.

Nothing better than the high of draining orgasm after orgasm from a man. The high he’d get from Josh’s orgasm would be sweet, because willing orgasms had a power unlike any other.

Anxious and ready to feed, Nathan set down his empty glass. “Ready to go?”

The scent of Josh’s hunger spiked, and Nathan caught his breath.

“Yup.” Josh nodded, and they left the lounge, hand in hand.

Josh had him so off-kilter, Nathan hoped he could contain his energy and keep himself from coming when they had sex. The power might frighten Josh, but it would also turn all the fairies on board and anybody nearby into sex-crazed fiends.

No, Nathan would have to make sure Josh came first. The power from Josh’s orgasm would give Nathan the strength to think clearly—an ability he seemed to have lost in Josh’s presence.

“I’ve never done this before,” Josh said. “Invite a stranger back to my room.”

Nathan gave Josh’s hand a gentle, reassuring squeeze. “We don’t have to,” he heard himself say, and his demon side screamed in protest.

Why am I giving the guy an out?

Josh faced him, wide-eyed and cheeks flushed. “I want to. If you do?”

Relieved, Nathan stepped closer, their chests all but touching. He kissed Josh on the lips. Though a tiny kiss, something electric and shimmering went throughout Nathan’s entire body. His power thrummed in want, and for the first time in all his life, he had a sudden desire to bite.

Not like a blood thing, but he wanted Josh so much, his predatory instincts were on high alert. He wanted to make this man his. To mark him with love bites, taste his release, come deep inside him….

Josh closed his eyes and held very still, as if poised for another kiss.

“Does that answer your question?” Nathan whispered.

“Uh-huh,” he said, nodding, then slowly opening his eyes.

Still holding his hand, Nathan cinched his other arm around Josh’s waist and pulled him close. His warm body pressed to Nathan’s was sheer nirvana.

Josh placed his free hand on Nathan’s chest. “I’ve never done this before.”

Nathan dipped his head close to his ear. “Then let’s make it special,” he whispered, leaving a tiny kiss below his lobe and delighting in the full-body shiver he got out of Josh. Nathan could taste Josh’s desire, like the rich, mouthwatering aroma of fresh-baked cookies. His stomach all but growled for Josh’s orgasm. Josh’s wanting gave Nathan a renewed strength.

If Nathan felt stronger just from Josh’s desire, how much would Josh’s essence strengthen him?

When Nathan kissed Josh, the man’s pheromones intensified even more. Eager, Nathan kissed him deeper, drawing on the power of Josh’s unchecked desire. While he had not inherited demon immortality or the need to drink blood, his need to bring others to orgasm was a vital part of his being.

If it just so happened to be pleasurable for both parties, all the better.

After all, what was the whole point of being on this rock if you didn’t want to enjoy it? Traveling and soaking up the riches of life had been one of the driving reasons for Nathan to leave home on his eighteenth birthday.

That and all the tension his demon had caused within his family.

Nathan withdrew, catching his breath. Not wanting his past to cloud his future tonight, he ran the back of his hand across Josh’s cheek. He needed to slow down before he took Josh right in the hallway.

“Oh my,” Josh whispered, his eyes fluttering open.

Happy reading.

Bully & Exit Release

Bully & Exit has been two years in the making and is the first full-length novel I’ve released. I am so, so excited to share it with you. I hope you love Nathan and Caleb as much as I do. ❤

Join me on Prism Book Alliance today as I discuss the plan for the series and a chance to win copies of Bully & Exit.


Theater student Caleb Stockwell is ready to leave college behind. Too bad his past isn’t ready to let him go.

With less than a month to go until graduation, Caleb runs into Nathan Rhodes at a house party.  Nathan is a star hockey player for Western Michigan University and finally ready to step out of the closet.  He’s also the guy who broke Caleb’s heart in high school.

Nathan’s determined to make amends for what he did four years ago, but Caleb isn’t willing to risk getting his heart stomped on again.  With only a few weeks left before they go their separate ways, it’ll take all of Nathan’s creativity and help from some interfering friends to convince Caleb to give him a second chance.


Nathan’s voice was soft when he spoke, gentle as it’d always been. “Caleb Stockwell. I’ve been looking for you.”

Caleb cleared his throat and ignored him, tipping the bottle up for another long drink. He licked the spiciness from his lips as he debated making another run for it. There was a shrub blocking his way in one direction and a hockey player in the other. Even if he hadn’t been drinking, the odds weren’t in his favor. “Nathan Rhodes,” he managed.

“Damn, I can’t believe it’s you!” Nathan leaned in, and Caleb pulled back, uncomfortable with him being so close.

Caleb laughed bitterly. “It’s me. Now that you’ve satisfied your curiosity, you can run along.” He motioned with his hand, encouraging Nathan to leave.

“It’s really good to see you,” Nathan said, ignoring him. He took a seat on the pile of discarded construction materials, his knees brushing Caleb’s as he lowered himself down. Caleb pulled away as if scorched.

“Yeah? Too bad I can’t say the same,” he muttered, his head swimming as the alcohol began to hit him. He eyed Nathan’s long, long legs and the way he was pinned in by them, remembering the way they’d felt tangled with his as they came, panting shallowly against each other’s skin. It brought it all back: the scent of Nathan’s cologne, the taste of his skin, the way Caleb’s heart raced in his chest when Nathan held him close. It brought back the memories, the ones he’d worked so hard to run from. The good and the bad. The sharp, intense happiness of falling for Nathan. The aching, crushing hurt that paralyzed Caleb for months after Nathan was no longer in his life. Everything he’d buried four years ago and vowed never to touch again.

He caught the first glimpse of doubt on Nathan’s face. “Are you okay, Caleb?”

“Oh, I’m motherfucking peachy,” he snarked and took another long drink. “I’ve made it through four fucking years trying to ignore the fact we’re on the same campus, and with barely a month left in my senior year, I thought maybe I’d managed to pull it off. But, no, Lowell had to drag me to this goddamn party, and, of course, you showed up too. Just my luck.”

He raised the bottle again, but Nathan wrapped a hand around the neck and tugged. He was stronger than Caleb, so Caleb let go, afraid he’d end up getting pulled onto Nathan’s lap if he didn’t. Nathan took a drink and passed the bottle back, licking the taste of rum off his lips before he spoke. “You’re so angry at me.”

“Ya think?” Caleb snarled. “Didn’t it ever occur to you I would be? What the hell makes you think you can waltz in here and pretend like all the shit that went down between us didn’t happen?” He tried to stand, but Nathan’s dark denim-clad knees were on either side of his, pinning him in place. The bottle was pried from his suddenly limp fingers and set aside.

“I don’t think that,” Nathan protested. “I was just glad to see you, and I… I wanted a chance to apologize. I didn’t … I wanted …”

Caleb’s lips parted in surprise as cool fingers framed his face, and for the first time in four long years, Nathan’s lips were pressed to his again. Involuntarily, Caleb’s eyes closed, feeling a rush of heat wash over him, taking him right back to the first time. Before Nathan broke his heart.

There’s no flash fic from me this week (I’m absolutely buried in final edits and formatting right now) but be sure to visit Helena’s Heat for her flash fic.  So far, she was the only one who wrote one this week.  I really love the prompt though, so I may try to write it this week if I can find a little time.


If you didn’t have a chance yesterday, stop by Prism Book Alliance for my Outside the Margins post.


If you were eagerly anticipating the Bully & Exit release tomorrow, I am afraid I had to bump it back to this Friday, July 10th.  Final edits took a bit longer than anticipated, so I decided to push it back a few days in order to put out the best possible book and not stress myself out any further.  Eee! I am so excited to share this book with you guys. I love Nathan and Caleb so much. ❤


Finally, please stop by Diverse Reader for info on the Christmas in July Giveaway I’m taking part in along with a group of incredible authors.  You have a chance to win books from 20 different authors! How awesome is that?

Updates – Husbands and an Apology

As you know, things have been a little crazy around here.  I managed to get three days off work that fell at the same time as my normal Friday off, so I have a nice chunk of six days off in a row.  Unfortunately, I’ve been running myself so ragged it was too little too late, at least when it comes to my health.  On Friday, I spent sixteen hours writing like a madwoman and now have a nasty case of bronchitis.  *sighs* Someday I’ll get better at this balancing thing, I swear.

On the plus side, the final piece of Russ and Stephen’s story, Husbands, is off to the betas and is available for pre-order on Amazon. The official release will be April 24th!

Now I’m off to get a little bit of writing done while I’m feeling up to it.  And resting.  Mostly resting, because I want to kick this bronchitis to the curb as fast as possible!
