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.

“Honey, I’m home.”
Alex laughed and came out of the kitchen to greet his husband. “We’ve talked about this, right? You do not walk into this apartment and talk to me like I’m the little wife.”
Leo kissed him soundly on the cheek. “Aw, but you’d look great in an apron, holding a glass of beer out for your weary, hard-working hubby.” He smirked. “And besides, no one in their right mind would call you little.”
Alex quirked his eyebrows. “One, you don’t drink beer, which is why there’s a glass of chilled chardonnay on the living room table, waiting for you. Two, excuse me—weary? Hard-working? You’ve been standing around in leather chaps and a harness, watching while guys do all manner of things to each other, which probably included a lot of fucking, because, hey, it’s Saturday night, right?”
Leo sighed happily. “What can I say? I love my job.”
From SJ Himes: What does Peter love most about Thomas?
“Does it have to be only one thing? Honestly, I’m not sure if I can narrow it down. When I came to stay with him, I was terrified. After the time with Curtis, I thought all Doms were the same. I expected him to use me. To pass me around to his friends. In fact, when he introduced me to Master Leo, I thought that was what he wanted from me. When he found me trying to service his friend, he was aghast. He took me and told me that was not something I needed to do. I was completely baffled.
As time went on, I kept thinking that eventually he’d show his true colors. That he’d lull me into a false sense of security, so that when the time came, I’d scream. Curtis liked it when I cried out, because it gave him the opportunity to beat me.
But he didn’t. He never yelled, never seemed to be angry. When Alex took me aside and asked me about submission, I told him what it was. He told me I was wrong. From that conversation, Thomas took me in hand. He showed me what a Dom truly was. Patient, kind, willing to show me what I could be.
He treated me as if I were precious to him, and expected me to understand that I was cherished. He taught me the rules. He went slowly, ensuring that I knew what was coming. He never forced me to fit into a mold. He gave me chores, and even in those, he let me know that there was no wrong way to do them. One day I wanted to make bread for him. A loaf, fresh from the oven. I thought he’d be proud of me. When Alex came over, he offered to help. It turned into a farce, and when we looked up, we saw Master Thomas. He said nothing, but I could tell he wanted to smile. That night, we ate dinner. He never punished me, beyond making us clean the kitchen.
He worried when I kept getting nervous, and decided he knew what he had to do. He took me to meet Darren, the owner of a salon. Master Thomas and Darren, along with our friends Leo and Alex, stood watch as he shaved me bald. He told me it was a rebirth. The old Peter was gone, and in his place was a new, happier man. And he was right.
So if you want to know what I love most about him, I think the only thing I can say is that he helped me to love myself again. And he does it every day.

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.
