In all his relationships, Darren Fielding never found the level of intimacy he witnessed between Thomas Williams and his sub, Peter, the day of Peter’s “rebirth.” Not only that, he never realized such intimacy was possible. For two years, Thomas’s business card has been burning a hole in his wallet. When Darren’s lover moves on, maybe it’s finally time to see where that card takes him.
Collars & Cuffs’s new barman, JJ Taylor, is really conflicted right now. He went to the club with a very specific purpose, already convinced of what he’d find there. Except it’s not what he expected at all. He certainly didn’t anticipate finding himself drawn to the new wannabe Dom. Nor could he have guessed the direction that attraction would lead him.
Old love, new love, vows, pain, rage, moving in, moving on…. The members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that touches some of them deeply, but it will only reinforce what they already know: together they are stronger, and some bonds cannot be broken.

I got home from the salon, and opened the door to my house. It still seemed odd coming home and not having Michael there. Don’t get me wrong, we parted on very good terms. We both knew it wasn’t meant for the long term, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a little bit of sadness involved.
About four months after we broke up, Michael met Roger at a convention, and the two of them hit it off. I don’t think I’d ever seen my friend happier. But with his departure came an empty home, and my desire for a change of my own. And I knew exactly where I wanted to start. I slipped my wallet from my pocket and opened it. The card had tattered edges and seemed a bit faded, but it still called to me. Reminding me of what I’d seen—no, what I bore witness to—as Thomas Williams helped Peter Nicholson achieve a transcendent rebirth.
Okay, I admit, I might be glamorizing it a little bit, but watching the two of them together, the love they shared between them and with their friends, stirred something in me. A desire that I’d known I had, but had never been sure how to explore.
After Thomas and Peter finished, Thomas told me he saw something within me. Something that told him I would fit into the world he and his friends lived in. BDSM? Of course I’d heard of it. Who hadn’t? It had become popular in culture, book, film. But these men lived it. They didn’t play, they didn’t hedge. It was engrained in their souls. So when Thomas told me he saw the same qualities in me, it set me to thinking that maybe he knew what I’d been missing. What I wanted when Michael and I were together. Something he never had an interest in.
But now I have the opportunity to explore. To see what’s out there that I know is calling to me. Before anything else, though, I’m going to call my friend. Michael had always been forthright with me. He knew my feelings. If anyone could tell me that I needed to grab the bull by the horns, so to speak, it would be him.
I dialed Michael’s number and looked at the card again. There was no way I could contain the grin on my face. My whole life was about to change, and I really couldn’t wait.

Meet K.C. Wells:
Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

Meet Parker Williams (or at least his voices):
Good day! We are the voices that live inside Will’s head. The ones who whisper to him constantly, beckoning him to speak of our adventures, to tell of our love, and perhaps, if we’re in a mood, kill a person or two.
We guide his hand as he tells our tales where love is the most powerful force, but must be worked for, molded, and finally, embraced. There can be no shortcuts or substitutions on the path to a happily ever after.
We hope you will join with us as Will fulfills his obligation to ensure our stories are told and, we hope, enjoyed.
