Stranger on the Shore

Stranger on the Shore

The kidnapping of four year-old Brian Arlington twenty years ago was a major news story at the time it happened. Although a man was convicted of the crime, Brian was never found. The story intrigues Mid-western crime reporter Griffin Hadley, and while the family has always resisted previous authors’ attempts to write about the kidnapping, family patriarch Jarret Arlington agrees to cooperate with Griffin to help revive interest in the story and perhaps find out what really happened to Brian.

Blurb:

Sometimes the little head really does know best.

Jeff White’s needs are simple. All he wants is a submissive to help him explore the dominant side that his ex-girlfriend couldn’t handle. Problem is, inexperience in both dating and domming has resulted in a string of rejections.

What he needs is an experienced sub willing to show him the ins and outs of controlling a scene. Unfortunately, the only one willing to take him on is male, and Jeff is straight. One hundred percent, never-gonna-happen straight. Read more ›

This second installment of the Gallant Gentlemen’s Guild (G3) series, which started off with Artist’s Touch, follows a new pair of unlikely lovers.

Review – Christmas at Leo’s

Christmas at Leo’s (Memoirs of a Houseboy #5) by Gillibran Brown

My rating: 4.5 Stars

Christmas at Leo's

Christmas at Leo’s

The houseboy is back, just in time for Christmas, with another long-time-coming installment of the story of his life with his two “daddies” Dick and Shane. This volume picks up right where the previous book, Gilliflowers, left off, with the story of Christmas 2008. It doesn’t start well, with Gilli visiting his mother. It will probably be her last Christmas, as she is in the final stages of cervical cancer, and it dredges up all sorts of memories in the young man. The memories aren’t really happy ones, and they threaten to ruin Christmas for everyone, as Dick and Shane ignore the houseboy’s pleas to be left alone and instead cart him off to the dreaded Leo’s mansion.
