November 2020 MM Romance Launches

I thought it was time I started giving a shout out to some of my fellow MM romance authors. Here’s what coming out next month.

At All Costs by Simone Anderson

Sometimes the price is too steep.

Riley Hamilton, RJ to his friends, is in New Orleans for a last vacation with his best friends before they each head off to pursue their own career. Riley is destined to work in his family’s company—a position he doesn’t want and can’t refuse. During a night of drinking, an Army veteran he’d fought with earlier in the day saves him from would-be kidnappers, and, in the process, Riley finds his world turned upside down. Riley has always considered himself straight, knowing his family wouldn’t allow anything else. When he finds himself having to pretend to be gay in order to stay alive, he also has to confront the reality of his life.

Kaden Tennison is an intelligence officer tasked with protecting the only son of a wealthy businessman, at all costs. What should be a simple bodyguard assignment turns out to be anything but. Unsure who can be trusted, the pair embark on a cross-country road trip to find out who is after Riley and, more importantly, why. Kaden denies their burgeoning relationship, knowing that at all costs sometimes means the price is simply too steep.

Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of homophobia, references to transphobia, sexual assault and violence.

General Release Date: 10th November 2020



Secret’s Hold by L.M. Somerton

Hiding in plain sight is a risky business—in more ways than one.

Jamie is hiding from the past and sacrificing a lot to do so. After witnessing a murder, he’s on the run from powerful enemies. Taking a job at a rough leather bar, Spikes, is a way to survive off-grid.

Bubba is the bouncer at Spikes who takes a personal interest in protecting Jamie’s very cute behind, but when Jamie runs from the club in panic straight into the path of a van, there’s nothing Bubba can do.

Amnesia puts Jamie at risk, but his returning memories are even more dangerous. Desperate to protect his friends, he puts his life on the line for Bubba—the only person he can rely on to save his neck.

Reader advisory: This book contains a scene of attempted rape. There are also scenes involving abduction, violence, and the forcible administration of drugs.

General Release Date: 17th November 2020



Under His Protection by Cheryl Dragon

A cop protecting his witness… It’s all business until desire becomes stronger than rules or self-control.

Detective Matt Blackburn and addiction counselor Josh Braidshaw first crossed paths at the LGBTQ+ youth shelter where they both volunteered. There was mutual attraction and plenty of flirtation, but Josh’s relationship kept anything from happening beyond that.

The duo is again thrown together when Josh is attacked while witnessing a young boy from the shelter being kidnapped. Matt puts Josh under his personal protection and things heat up, now that both men are free. Josh wants his normal life back and Matt isn’t keen to lose his career by crossing a professional line, but their close quarters and the heat that simmers between them might cause them both to change their priorities.

Reader advisory: This book contains references to drug use and addition, as well as injuries sustained during a kidnapping. There are also scenes of violence.

Alfie’s First Encounter with the Sexy Man in the Mirror

What would you do if you discovered a beautiful stranger trapped in a mystic mirror in your new home? Here’s how my MC Alfie responds in my gay erotic romance Mirror Man…

“The face that looked out of the mirror was that of a handsome man in his late thirties, maybe early forties, with long dark hair falling around his chiseled features. He fixed his vibrant green eyes on Alfie. For a moment, Alfie just stared back, his mind racing to make sense of what was happening. He was dreaming—that was the obvious explanation—but he’d never had a dream this vivid before.
As the man in the mirror continued to stare, Alfie became aware of his own nakedness. And, despite his confusion and shock, he grew hard.

“Alfie,” said the man, and his voice was dark and rich. Alfie recognized it as the voice he’d heard the previous afternoon when he’d been dozing in the chair. “Alfie, come closer to the mirror so I can see you better.”

As he spoke, the man seemed to rise up so that not just his face but also most of his body was visible. He was dressed in a highly patterned shirt that was unbuttoned halfway to his navel, revealing a smooth, toned chest and stomach. He looked like the hero, or villain, from one of the 1970s horror films Alfie loved so much—although Alfie couldn’t recall any of those characters being as beautiful as this man. His cock stirred as he took a step toward the mirror.

“That’s right,” said the man, “Come closer, close enough for me to smell you.”
Alfie edged closer, stroking his own chest and stomach. This was so vivid. He wanted to climb into the mirror, have the stranger embrace him, kiss him and eventually fuck him.”

Who is Your Strangest Celebrity Crush?

What’s your weirdest celebrity crush? The strangest crush I’ve had was on a member of a boy band called Five. Nothing that unusual there you might think, except at the time I was 30 years old and barely even aware of the group. 

I had just split up from a boyfriend after two years when it happened. I had a dream, which is how celebrity crushes often begin for me, that I was dating this boy band member and when I woke up it was there, that crush feeling. I even went out and bought a copy of Smash Hits magazine because there was a poster of the band in that issue. I was like a teenager again.

The only way I can explain it, is that I needed somewhere to focus those romantic feelings that could no longer be directed at my ex. But why this particular celeb? I can’t remember how long it lasted — a few weeks, I think. Once the crush had faded, it was over. I never look at pictures of him now and think, ‘ahh he was my crush’. It all just seemed so ridiculous, even when it was happening.

So, make me feel better, and share your weird celebrity crushes in the comments.

A Blowjob in the Woods

Here’s a sexy snippet from my novella Mirror Man. No mystical men in mirror in this excerpt though, just two hot guys getting horny in a forest.

Ben reached down and took Alfie’s hand, pulling him the rest of the way up the slope. Alfie wished they could continue the walk hand in hand, like lovers. But Ben soon released his grip and Alfie’s hand felt cold.

“You okay?” asked Ben, as if sensing Alfie’s disappointment. He stared straight into Alfie’s eyes. They stood among the trees, just inches from each other. Ben’s breath wafted against his face and the heat of his crotch was so close to his own. Ben took a step closer, and rested his groin against Alfie’s. Warmth flooded Alfie’s stomach and his cock began to stiffen. Ben rested a hand on Alfie’s lower back and pulled him even closer, so that their bodies were pressed together and they were kissing. It began as just pecking but soon became passionate.

Alfie pulled away, breathing heavily.

“Should we go back to the cottage?” he asked, pushing his engorged cock against Ben’s hard bulge.

Ben shook his head, licking his soft lips. “What’s wrong with here?” he asked.

“Really?” Alfie glanced around. They hadn’t seen another soul during their walk, but he was nervous about having sex somewhere so public.

“Don’t be shy,” said Ben with a grin that lit up his handsome face.

“Isn’t it a bit cold?” asked Alfie.

“It won’t feel cold for long,” said Ben, then kissed Alfie again, one hand gripping the back of Alfie’s head, the other slipping under his pullover and T-shirt, stroking his stomach. Alfie moaned with pleasure, returning Ben’s kiss with increased passion. Ben crept his hand to Alfie’s chest, tweaking each nipple in turn and sending a bolt of pleasure through Alfie’s body. The area around each nipple continued to tingle as Ben rolled them between his thumb and finger, teasing them until they were both hard.

Their kissing become more feverish until Ben broke free, running his tongue down the side of Alfie’s neck. Alfie gasped at the feeling of pleasure this new contact gave him, relishing the tingling dampness as Ben tongued a line down to his throat, which he then showered with kisses.

Alfie placed a hand on each of Ben’s tight butt cheeks and pulled him as close as possible so that his hard cock throbbed against Alfie’s. Ben’s dick was huge and Alfie felt as if his was going to explode. With one hand, he cupped Ben’s balls through the denim of his jeans and massaged them until Ben began to moan. Alfie rubbed the long, thick shaft of Ben’s cock. Finally, he unbuttoned Ben’s jeans, pulling his length into the open through the side of his white briefs. It was as big as the bulge had suggested, the skin a little darker than that of the rest of his body. A string of pre-cum connected the cockhead to Ben’s neatly trimmed bush of black hair. Alfie dropped to his knees, licking up the pre-cum then taking the wide bell-end into his mouth, sucking it like a delicious sweet.

“God yes,” groaned Ben, resting a hand on Alfie’s head.

Alfie took the full length of Ben’s cock into his mouth and down his throat. Ben let out another gasp of pleasure as Alfie drew his lips back along the shaft, teasing the glans of his cockhead with his tongue. A trickle of cum pumped out of the slit. Not wanting this experience to be over yet, Alfie released Ben’s cock. Ben gripped thebottom of his shaft to stop any more cum from escaping, clearly tensing with the effort of fighting against his orgasm. He lost the battle and a creamy jet spattered across Alfie’s face, quickly followed by another warm, thick gush. This time, Alfie was ready, opening his mouth and swallowing it all. It felt like honey as it slid down his throat.

“I’m sorry,” said Ben. “I was just so turned on.”

“No problem,” said Alfie, licking Ben’s cock clean and wiping the cum from his own face. He stared up into Ben’s beautiful brown eyes as he licked the sticky liquid from his fingers.

When Your Flatmate Wants You to See Him Getting Fucked

This is a little snippet from my novella The Black Mask. It doesn’t feature the title character, but it’s still hot! Here we find Charlie, actual the main protagonist in the story, returning home after visiting his editor Sam, to find his flatmate getting fucked on the sofa.

When I get home to my apartment in Camden Town, about fifteen minutes on the Underground from Sam’s office, I walk into the living room to find my roommate, Jules, fucking his boyfriend on the sofa. They are going at it aggressively, Jules with his legs draped over his boyfriend’s shoulder and his new boyfriend—I think his name is John—pounding him so unrelentingly that they don’t even notice me standing in the doorway. Jules is moaning, his long, dark hair spayed across the arm of the sofa and his blond, very buff boyfriend is grunting like an animal.

I think of Sam and wish that was him doing the fucking and me taking his big cock up my arse. I’ve never seen Sam’s cock, obviously, but I’m guessing it’s big. I’m surprised at the power of the rush of lust that sweeps over me. I mean, I’ve always fancied Sam, but suddenly I’m desperate to have him fuck me over his desk. And, as much as it may irritate me, it’s more than lust that’s filling me. There are real feelings bubbling in there too.

I should have stopped visiting Sam the moment I started thinking like this.

Finally, Jules notices me but looks only mildly embarrassed. John also turns to look at me and has the decency to at least blush, although he makes no effort to pull his cock from my roommate’s hole. I hold up a hand.

“Don’t mind me,” I say, crossing the living room to the open-plan kitchen. I grab a bottle of beer from the fridge and continue to my bedroom. As soon as my bedroom door closes, I hear the moaning and grunting recommence. Why they need to do it in the living room, I don’t know. It’s like they just want to rub my nose in the fact that I’m single now and haven’t had sex since I walked in on Jake and Mark doing it doggy style in Jake’s bathroom.

I’d let myself into Jake’s apartment because I’d intended to decorate it with a happy birthday banner and balloons for when he got home from work. It had been his twenty-fifth birthday that day. I’d heard the grunts and sighs coming from the open bathroom as soon as I’d stepped into his hallway. I must have looked such an idiot standing there with a ‘happy birthday’ banner, staring at my soon-to-be-ex boyfriend fucking my soonto-be-ex friend in the shower. They hadn’t even turned the water on. Why fuck in the shower if you aren’t even going to turn the water on?

I take a swig of beer and turn on the small TV that sits on a chest of drawers at the end of my bed. I turn the volume up as high as it will go to try and drown out the sound of my flatmate getting pounded by his admittedly very hot, muscular boyfriend, and I find myself thinking of Sam.

Pretty soon I’m rock-hard again.

Will Cam Sex Come into its Own During Lockdown?

I’ve always been a fan of cam sex. (Please note, the guy in the image is not me. I am older and chunkier!) Nothing turns me on more than masturbating for an audience on a site like Cam4, or having some one-to-one fun on sites like dirtyroulette. I get to chat and wank, people are generally friendly, and, ultimately, I get to come. There’s no mess to clear up, other than the mess I make, and no awkward post-sex conversations.

With lockdown in the UK now in week 5 (I think it’s week five, I’m losing track), I wonder how many other single people, living alone are discovering the joys of virtual sex. In fact, I wonder how many couples, separated by lockdown, are experimenting with cam sex for the first time.

What are you experiences of cam sex, and have any of you discovered it as a result of being cooped up during lockdown. Please share your stories in the comments. You can also add me on Snapchat. Username Skingwriter.

A Mysterious Encounter with the Mirror Man

Here’s a sexy snippet from my short novel Mirror Man. I hope it whets your appetite enough, or just gets you wet enough, to buy the whole book!

At first the glass swam with mist—like a scene from one of the cheesy horror films he loved so much—but gradually the fog cleared, revealing the same stunning man, only this time he was naked. He seemed to float toward the glass. Alfie drank in the sight of him—his long, dark hair and piercing green eyes, broad shoulders, perfectly toned chest and flat stomach. It was the physique of a swimmer, lithe and muscular. Hanging between two sculpted thighs was his magnificent cock. Even flaccid it was six inches long and the foreskin rolled back to reveal a gleaming bell-end. He placed his palms against the glass of the mirror and continued to stare.

“Alfie, come closer to the mirror,” he said, his voice as rich and deep as Alfie remembered. Alfie obeyed.

It’s a dream, so why argue?

He wondered why, if it were a dream, his mind didn’t pull the beautiful man through the glass and into the room so that Alfie could run his fingers down the lightly tan perfection of his body and take that thick cock in his hand and, eventually, into his mouth.

Alfie stopped a few feet from the fireplace, transfixed by the vision in the mirror. His own dick was now ironhard and he saw that the man in the mirror’s dick was also growing.

“I want to be with you,” said the man, his voice strangely distant, despite his closeness.

Alfie reached down and began to masturbate, watching the man’s cock swell and stiffen into a stunning eightinch totem.

“You need to break the glass,” said the main, licking his top lip and reaching down to stroke his own cock.

“Why?” asked Alfie.

“To free me!” snapped the man. “Don’t you want me there with you? Inside you? Don’t you want to taste me, smell me, be with me in the flesh?”

As he spoke, the man pressed his engorged length against the glass. Alfie saw the first bubbles of pre-cum forming on the cockhead. Arousal surged through him as he searched the room for something with which to break the mirror, finally grabbing an ornate and heavy candlestick that stood on one side of the mantelpiece. At least he tried to grab it, but his hand passed right through.

What the hell?

Full-length Gay Romance Coming Soon…

Photo by Vickson Santos on

I’m making good progress with my first full-length gay romance novel, working title Darkwater House. I’ve just passed the 40k words mark, aiming for around 50k. 

The novel is set in Hampstead, close to the Heath and, yes, not far from the famous gay cruising area, which features in one hot scene. There is a paranormal element, plus a murder mystery to solve too. Oh, and a sizzling romance between two very sexy guys.

I’ve enjoyed writing a longer piece. Under another name I have published several longer works and I love the journey, sometimes being surprised by the direction it takes as your characters seem to take over. It’s been fun applying the same techniques to the male/male romance genre, watching my characters grow and their relationship develop through ups and downs. 

I’m hopeful that Darkwater House will find a publisher, but there are no guarentees, but I promise I will get it out there somehow.

Meanwhile you can read a sexy snippet here – this is from the unedited first draft, so it may read differently come publication.

A Sexy Encounter Over Hampstead Heath

A while back I shared my real-life trip to Hampstead Heath’s gay causing area. It wasn’t an erotic high-point for me. My character, Toby, from my new full-length gay romance, Darkwater House, has a much better time…

A Snippet from Darkwater House

Toby stumbled as he made his way down the sloping pathway to the heath extension. He knew the path led to a narrow dirt track between the trees and that if he turned left off that track, he would be in the cruising area. A taxi driver had pointed out the path to him a few years back, not long after he’d moved to London.

“That’s where all the queers go,” the driver had said, “just behind Jack Straw’s Castle. Avoid that bit of the heath, unless you want a nasty surprise.”

Jack Straw’s Castle was an imposing building set on the main road. Up until a few years ago it had been a pub—the one-time hang-out of Charles Dickens, no less. Now it was a block of luxury apartments.

Toby reached the mud track and the trees swallowed up the light from the streetlamps some two hundred yards behind him. Do I really want to do this? He felt suddenly anxious and pined for his living room and the comfy sofa. But he pushed any doubts aside and plunged into the woodland to his left. Up ahead, he could see shadowy figures milling around the trees and bushes, like ghosts doomed to wander for eternity. Toby pushed that thought from his head, too and tried to focus on the pleasure of getting or giving an anonymous blow job. He’d be home in no time, feeling relieved and relaxed. He’d finish the second bottle of red and fall into bed.

A dark figure approached him, feet crunching through the crisp leaves on the ground. As the stranger drew close, Toby saw that he was in his fifties at least, his face doughy and red. The darkness didn’t obscure people’s faces as much as Toby had imagined. The man reached out and cupped Toby’s balls.

“No,” barked Toby, and the man walked on without comment.

Others were approaching from all sides now, shadow men of all shapes and sizes, drawn to this new, young arrival. Toby began to panic, slipping between the nearest two and delving deeper into the woodland.

He paused by a tree, leaning his back against it, trying to be invisible for a while. He felt overwhelmed, even a little scared. There was so much sex on offer, but it felt too primitive somehow, the way the men had approached him from all sides. What next? Would they start sniffing his arse like dogs would?

When did you get so judgmental? he asked himself.

What was wrong with wanting sex and coming here to find it?

He pushed away from the tree and began walking again. Another man brushed past him, looking back at Toby over his shoulder and nodding. Toby could just about make out a clean-shaven face, high forehead and short, dark hair. From behind, the guy looked stocky, his arse wide, with sturdy thighs like those of a rugby player.

Why not?

He followed the stranger into a clump of shrubbery. There was already a couple hidden there, one man on his knees while the other stood almost motionless, gentlygroaning. In the little thicket, it really was too dark to see what they looked like, and Toby was focusing on his stocky stranger.

The guy with rugby-player thighs grabbed Toby’s hand and pulled it toward his crotch. Toby gasped as he touched the man’s solid cock. This guy wasn’t wasting any time on small talk. But that was the general idea.

After a moment’s hesitation, Toby took a firm grip on the thick shaft and sank to his knees. He licked the stranger’s cockhead, tasting a hint of pre-cum, before wrapping his lips around it and slipping them over the swollen glans, then pulling back with a slurp. The man moaned appreciatively.

Toby was aware of the couple next to them. The guy on his knees was just inches from where Toby crouched, and the one being serviced stood very close to the stranger whose cock Toby was sucking. As Toby continued to feed hungrily, his attention kept wandering to the other standing figure. He was hidden by darkness, but Toby could tell from his shadowy outline that he was tall and lean, and the guttural groans he was releasing as his orgasm grew closer were turning Toby on more than those of the man he was currently engaged with.

He wondered if the pair would embrace a foursome, offering him the chance to taste the other stranger’s cock. But as the thought occurred to him, the object of his desire let out a long, low moan, and something warm and wet hit Toby’s face. He might not have gotten to give the other stranger a blow job, but apparently he had taken the brunt of his cum explosion. As Toby relished the sensation of the treacle-like liquid running down his cheek, the knob he was slurping on also exploded and more creamy cum filled his mouth. He swallowed, caught up in the sordidness of the situation—one man’s cum covering his face, another’s slipping down his throat.

His stocky lover was already zipping himself up and backing away.

“Cheers, mate,” the man said, heading off into the night.
