A Gentleman Never Keeps Score by Cat Sebastian.

File under: How did I not know about this?

A Gentleman Never Keeps Score is the story of an unlikely pair of men who join forces to steal some dirty paintings. Hartley Sedgwick is vain, idle, and a bit self-centered. Sam Fox is a cinnamon roll who keeps a pub. Together they do crime.”

“TOMORROW!” PQ shouts to the rooftops…”TOMORROW!”

How can you consider not picking up a book wherein the blurb ends with ‘together they do crime”, *shivers*. I am one clicking and will report back later with my thoughts but I can tell you right now, Cat Sebastian is ALWAYS a one click for me.

Welcome, Katey Hawthorne who is visiting with PQ today to reveal the cover of Equilibrium, the first novella in her Superpowered Love series. Equilibrium will be available August 1, 2018.

Congratulations Katey!

COVER Equilibrium

Cover artist: Natasha Snow

Book Blurb:

Econ student Hansen Marks has been hot for Sam MacLeod since they first bonded over their secret superpowers–literally hot, since Hansen can produce fire from thin air. But soccer star Sam was always covered in girls, so Hansen kept his attraction in the closet and convinced himself that “best friends” was better than nothing.

When Sam’s electrical powers freak out in public, Hansen has a sinking feeling they’re spotted by unfriendly eyes. While dealing with the fallout, Sam’s emotional dependency on Hansen forces their mutual attraction to the surface. Even after they give in, Hansen is afraid to admit he’s in love. Sam doesn’t really like guys, he’s just feeling vulnerable… right?

Just as their nights are heating up, it becomes clear Sam’s electrical explosion was seen, and now someone has it in for both of them. They’ll have to save each other, both from the haters and from their own fears, if they want to maintain equilibrium.

Series Blurb:

The Superpowered Love series explores the mixed-up love lives of the “awakened”, humans with awakened thermal or electrical superpowers.

How I Met Your Father by L.B. Gregg – rerelease

I’m being extra piratey today and posting about whatever the heck I want. As I was cruising procrastinating on Twitter yesterday I came across this tweet:

THE TWEET I SAW

How I met

Which, of course, I immediately had to retweet because How I Met Your Father is a great little story which I think about often and had in fact been recalling with fondness only the day before! I am so happy to see it back and available for other readers to discover. You will not be disappointed with this spin on a May-September relationship.

Fellow Pirateers, L.B. Gregg is one of my all-time favorite mm authors. I love their books, if you haven’t come across the Men of Smithfield series I highly recommend them. There are five to keep you up late into the night. L.B. absolutely writes the kinds of characters that stick with you long after the last page has been read.

mark and tony

Another I particularly recommend is There’s Something About Ari which is part of the Blue Water series but absolutely can be read as a stand-alone.

Something About

So, stop thinking about the garden, or the baseball game or whatever else you didn’t really want to do this weekend and pick up one of these titles!

Ever yours,

PQ

Walking the plank today: The Mentor of Lostwood Hall by Jackson Marsh

Jackson Marsh joins PQ today to chat about the newest addition to his loosely connected ‘Mentor’ collection.

Jackson is here today to discuss the concept behind the Mentor books, and what his aim was with Lostwood Hall. I haven’t had a chance to read this yet but can assure you I am very much looking forward to it and will follow up ASAP. I am a huge May-September romance fan and very much believe in the possibility of love at first sight.

Thank you so much for popping over today Jackson, grab a virtual cuppa and let’s talk books!

What a gorgeous cover!

32337007_1714299665317698_5321839086791557120_n

 

About Lostwood Hall:

“A man with a future he can’t accept, and a lad with a past he can’t escape.”

Two men in a storm-battered castle harbouring secrets and hopes unknowingly guide each other to an unexpected friendship that turns to passionate love.

Julian Ford’s life is at a crossroads. Thirty-four, disillusioned with his screenwriting career and cheated by love, he craves the chance of isolation at his rambling home in the Welsh mountains, Lostwood Hall. But when 21-year-old Lee Benson survives a car crash, Julian has no choice but to take him in.

Their pasts collide, bringing a storm of doubts, fears, a jealous ex-lover and a dangerous thug seeking revenge. Is Julian and Lee’s fledgling relationship strong enough to survive? And do they trust each other enough to escape death?

The Mentor of Lostwood Hall is the fourth in Jackson Marsh’s ‘Mentor’ collection of older/younger MM romance.

Jackson Marsh discusses the Mentor collection and Lostwood Hall:

The Mentor of Lostwood Hall is the fourth book in the Mentor collection of older/younger romance novels. These novels are always about a relationship between an older man (usually between 35 and 42) and a younger (between 18 and 22), and they take place in remote locations; an isolated farm, a castle in the mountains, a hillside cabin. The older guy usually has a life crisis to deal with and the younger man is usually secure about being gay but so far unable to come out. Some are love at first sight, others are slow burn and each book usually has at least one sex scene, if not more. They are always happy ever after, or at least, happy for now with a bright future ahead.

In ‘Lostwood Hall’, I wanted to explore the way that some people, when they meet, not only have an instant attraction, but also an instant understanding of each other, there is banter and easy conversation, even during sex, because that’s how it sometimes is. I also like to offer the younger character a romantic experience we’d all like to have; a candlelit dinner, a glittering ballroom with roaring fire, a handsome older, guiding man…

The Mentor books are not an on-going series, each one stands alone, but the concept behind each novel remains the same.

Are you ready for a little Pain Play? Author Morticia Knight joins us with a snippet from her newest!

Pain Play Teaser png

Firstly, I’d like to thank Morticia for joining us today! I’m always ready for something new, let’s see what she has for us!

Blurb

Terry is ready for some pain that brings him pleasure…

The deeper Terry becomes immersed in a 24/7 dynamic with Phil, the more he realizes that he’s ready for them to be full-time. There might still be plenty to learn in his D/s journey with his Master, but he’s discovered a sense of peace and fulfillment he hadn’t known was possible.

Phil can’t wait to show his boy how exquisite erotic pain can be.

Phil couldn’t be more thrilled when Terry confesses his desire for them to take the next step in their Master/sub relationship, and he decides to explore some of Terry’s soft limits regarding pain. Adding to his joy are the approaching holidays that include celebrating with their friends. If only he could receive an offer for a film project, Phil would get all his Christmas wishes.

Surprises are revealed, forbidden desires are shared, and their New Year begins with a bang—which not only brings them closer to each other—but to their friends, Master Gerard and his boy Marco.

Author’s note: Pain Play is part of a continuing series that chronicles Phil and Terry’s loving D/s journey and should be read in order. Phil and Terry are a committed, monogamous couple, but there is a scene of group play. This story ends with an HEA, no cliffhanger and doesn’t include any additional content. Pain Play is approximately 37,500 words and 120 pages. Watch for more in the Play Series coming soon!

Excerpt

Terry stirred, soaking up Phil’s warmth as he snuggled into him. He let out an unbidden groan.

Fuck.

His first thought was that he was going to regret the throbbing sting in his nipples or the deep ache in ass cheeks, but as he bent one knee to drape a leg over his Master, his next thought was how delicious the lingering pain felt, how it was like having Phil’s continuous touch all over him. A low moan rumbled in Phil’s chest and he rolled on his side, wrapping an arm around Terry then tugging him closer. Terry used his leg to embrace Phil’s limbs even more as he rubbed his face against Phil’s neck.

“Morning.” Phil’s sleep-roughened voice was more growly than usual.

It had been quite a night.

Despite the occasional off-hand remarks Phil made about his age and diminished prowess, it hadn’t stopped him from fucking Terry twice after they’d had a chance to rest up from Phil’s enthusiastic flogging. The multiple coming in the same night for them both wasn’t something that had happened since they’d been reunited. Terry grinned. Ass is sore on the inside too. They’d both gotten a thorough workout.

“Good morning, Master.” He yawned a bit too loudly.

Phil chuckled, the deep timbre of his voice a cock-awakening sound. “I’d ask if you need more sleep, but that nice, hard rod pushing against my stomach says otherwise.”

“What can I say? I’m hot for you all the time.”

Phil traced circles with his fingertips on Terry’s back. “Flatterer.” He placed a firm kiss on the top of Terry’s head. “But I’ll take it.”

I’m the one who took it last night.”

Phil barked out a laugh. “That you did. And quite well, I might add.” Phil hugged him. “What time does your session begin?”

Terry’s eyes went wide and he jolted out of Phil’s arms, smashing their chests together as he surged over Phil’s torso to check the digital clock on the nightstand. Phew. But what a boner-killer. He collapsed into Phil’s embrace again. Even though he didn’t typically sleep much past dawn, their enthusiastic play the evening before had exhausted him.

Phil snorted. “Everything okay?”

“Yeah. Sorry about that. They won’t be here ‘til ten. I’ve got almost two hours still.”

“Then may I hold my beautiful sub for a few more minutes before we start our day?”

Terry smiled. “Of course.”

He wriggled against Phil to work himself back into a comfortable position. His bladder wasn’t screaming at him yet, but he didn’t figure he’d last much longer than the few minutes Phil had requested. Terry chewed at his lip, the pleasant dreamy zone he’d been in when he’d first awoken had been ripped from him, which meant that instead, his mind was whirring the way it always did. Phil jostled him.

“Baby? You’re tense.”

Terry let out a frustrated sigh. “Yeah, sorry. My brain is up and at ‘em. You know how I get.”

“That’s okay, I understand. Then let’s go over our day for a moment before I feed you your breakfast.”

Terry snapped his head up, furrowing his brow as he stared down at Phil. “Wait, what? Again?”

Phil’s expression radiated amusement. “You’re like a prairie dog this morning.”

Terry gave Phil a smirk. “Ha ha. Now what about the breakfast thing?”

Phil smiled, caressing Terry’s cheek, his thumb scraping the stubble there. “Let me do this for you. Then, after your session we’ll discuss everything in depth when we go over our permanent contract.”

Permanent. Holy shit and fuck yeah.

“Okay. I can do that.”

Phil searched his face, and whatever aspect of their relationship—or perhaps Terry himself—he was musing on, seemed to fill his Master with contentment. He ran his hand along Terry’s cheek before threading his fingers through his hair. “Thank you. Taking care of you that way made me very, very happy.”

Terry smiled, Phil’s statement reminding him of how much he’d been touched by it as well. “I’m glad. I was thinking it might be one of those things you only liked to do on occasion, or was only for my benefit, and you didn’t get all that much out of the act.”

“Mmm. I get a lot out of feeding you and I’m continuing it for our benefit.” He kept playing with Terry’s hair. Phil cupped the back of his head then drew him in for a chaste kiss. “Nice to be coddled a bit, isn’t it?”

Terry swallowed hard. He constantly struggled to let go, to allow himself the true vulnerability that Phil wanted from him. “It was, I mean it. I suppose I assumed it was merely part of a scene.”

Phil gave him a soft smile. “But you said you were sorry the scene ended, that you wanted us to be 24/7 from now on.”

Terry chuckled shakily. “Yeah. I remember saying something to that effect.”

Phil’s brow furrowed. “We don’t have to be 24/7 yet if you’re still unsure. Just hearing you say you wanted to at all let me know we’re making real progress.”

Terry grabbed the hand Phil had cupped around his nape, prying his fingers loose so he could clutch their joined hands to his chest. “No. I’m not unsure, just nervous. I’ll fight you. Even if I don’t want to, won’t mean to—I will. You’ve been a lot softer with me since what happened with Anson and those assholes. And I love that gentle side, it’s so different from what I’m used to with us, but I need your rougher side too. Don’t be afraid to push me. You never were before.”

 

Author Morticia Knight spends most of her nights writing about men loving men forever after. If there happens to be some friendly bondage or floggings involved, she doesn’t begrudge her characters whatever their filthy little hearts desire. Even though she’s been crafting her naughty tales for more years than she’d like to share—her adventures as a published author began in 2011. Since then, she’s been fortunate enough to have several books on bestseller lists along with titles receiving recognition in the Rainbow Book Awards, Divine Magazine and Love Romance Café.

 

Once upon a time she was the lead singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She currently resides on the North Oregon coast and when she’s not fantasizing about hot men, she takes walks along the ocean and annoys the local Karaoke bar patrons.
