Mike is a contestant on the hot new quiz show gripping the nation, and he has a chance to win a lot of money – a lot. But when he can’t remember the answer, and the quiz show host helps him out, what price will he be expected to pay for cheating?
Philip and Adam are back together after breaking up for a while, and Adam’s still on top and wielding the whip hand. At least he thinks he is, anyway, when Philip lets him. But when Adam gets frisky with a sexy new client, there’s liable to be hell to pay, and a whole lot of spanking going on…
Scott is a werewolf: a submissive wolf. A submissive werewolf escort and whore, to be accurate, paying his way through grad school via spankings and canings, turning tricks in a supernatural brothel. His client for the evening is John, a dom who certainly looks like he knows a trick or two…
William doesn’t want to attend the company social organised by his buddy, CEO’s PA Belle. Because he doesn’t have a date. Because she’s arranged for him to escort that same CEO, handsome disreputable charmer Jonathan Pokklin. Because he has a crush on Pokklin. Because it’s not a Prom, damn it!
Francis has been dating pack Alpha werewolf Jonas Greyashe for three months now. But what’s his status? Is he significant other, casual squeeze, occasional hook-up… or mate? It’s not just Francis who wants to know… Sequel to A Bookstore, A Werewolf and a Full Moon.
“Your prescription now is stronger,”
My optician says to me
He only means to give the dimming
Fuzzy world a clarity
You, I’ve not explained to him yet
He has not asked that I do
Only wants to know my headaches
An alphabet recital too
Think you I’ll love you less dearly
If I see you sharp and clear
If I see your flaws my dear one
Once I excused myopically
It’s not the case, although it should be
I love you not for fuzzy glow
For radiant halos stemming only
From faulty curve of lens, I know
I love you for your faults, you bastard
And when I see them close and sharp
I’ll pull the hornrims off my nose, dear
Vowed haloed angel, sans specs, mit harp.

Ben is a company CEO whose PA Alec left the company with no explanation a while back. Which would be fine, no hard feelings. Apart from his having been totally in love with the guy. So when he finds out Alec is working as an escort, he wants to know why. And that’s not all he wants…
tough gig, man, no-one understands
the paperwork’s a bitch when you shoot lightning from your hands
getting paid by angry clients is no easier it seems
and then there’s the spandex ‘cause it fits with people’s dreams
but you go home to the boyfriend
if not the same time every night
if you’re lucky, he understands
you have to fight and fight the good fight
(even though dating a lawyer or a cop
you’d think they’d know the drill
the bad guy don’t go home and shut up shop
just because your guy has needs to fulfill)
yeah, a gay superhero has it hard
but count it up at the end of the day
the grateful appreciation of the populace
and a mundane boyfriend with super-powered cuddles
go a long long long long way.

Francis is a concierge at a plush five star hotel, well used to unusual and exotic requests from his highly demanding guests. So what if this handsome new guest’s requests include lollipops… and a cane?
rushing to be funny
blushing when you stutter
you search for one excuse to linger
he needs change for a buck
you’re due back at work
he’s such a cute stranger
here’s where destiny hits you like a truck
on the other hand maybe just a really great —
