Release Date: July 18, 2016
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.

A sigh ripples from me. I pull back the paper, and find ‘The Art of Massage’, ‘Yoga Massage’, ‘Loving Hands Massage’, and a few other titles I’ve not heard of yet.
“I don’t understand,” I admit. “I haven’t done much with massage, even though I trained for it years ago. Maybe he’s going to start asking for more, and wants me to brush up on my skills.”
“That could be. Listen, I have to get going. Want to come down to the club with me? Leo says they’re doing something new, and it’s a big thing. They want as many people to show up as possible.”
I was a little disappointed. Master Thomas hadn’t said anything to me about it. Maybe he didn’t want me there.
“He wants you there, Peter.”
“Stop doing that!” I grouse.
“Come on, it’ll be fun.”
Though I’m sure he hears me sigh, I agree to go with. The drive only takes a short time, and Alex is very excited. “I can’t wait to see what they’re going to do. Leo says it’s going to be something unique to Collars & Cuffs, and he’s sure people will be lining up to take advantage of it.”
We enter the building and I’m surprised by how quiet it is. Not even Tony is at the door.
“Are you sure they’re talking about the club?” I ask quietly.
“Yes, I’m certain. It’s up on the second floor.”
We walk up the stairs, and I still don’t hear anything. Alex leads me down the hallway, and we come to the last door at the end. “This is it,” he says. “Are you ready?”
I’m not. I’m scared to death to see what’s going on. He pushes me forward.
“Open the door, Peter.”
Light floods the hall when I push the door open. Voices rise in a loud wail, each of them shouting the same thing.
Oh, crap. It’s my birthday. I’d totally forgotten. Master Thomas steps forward and takes my hand. He says thank you to Alex, and I realize my best friend is in on the whole thing. Alex grins and puts his hand on a curtain, then slowly pulls it back. The room is completely different from all the other private rooms I’ve seen. The shelves are lined with oils, towels, and sheets. A massage table sits in the middle of the room, looking as though it just came off the showroom floor. There’s a tap on my shoulder, and I turn around. Leo is behind me, his grin a mile wide. He hands me another wrapped package.
“Open it lad,” Thomas insists.
I peel back the paper, and there’s a sign inside. It says, ‘Peter’s Place’.
“I don’t understand.”
Thomas pulled me into his arms. “You trained as a massage therapist. You gave me the best I’ve ever had. It’s a shame to waste your talent. Leo and I thought it would be something for the club to have a bonus service. You could offer massages for one person or a couple. We already have a list of people who would like to book a space in your schedule.”
“Pay attention,” Alex teased. “They’ve done this for you. They’re asking if you’ll be the Collars & Cuffs massage therapist.”
My mind reeled. How the hell could I answer with my heart in my throat? When I’d been younger, I dreamed of a job doing massages. I loved how people react when you give them one, how they melt into it. Thomas did when I gave him one, and it showed me I hadn’t lost my training despite the years with Curtis Rogers.
“What do you think, boy?” Thomas whispered in my ear. “Care to come to work for us?”
“For you? But what about my chores?”
“You’ll set your own hours. If you want to only do one day a week, then that’s what it will be. But if you decide you want to make this your full time job, then we’ll make it work. I wanted this for you, Peter. I hate the idea you’re wasting your talents. If you don’t want to—”
“No, Sir!” I shout. “I mean, no, I do want to. I really do. But I need to know one thing.”
“Would you be my first client?”
“If it makes you happy, of course.”
He kisses me, and I find myself overwhelmed, but with a spark of happiness that he sees me, and still wants me to continue growing.
“I’d love to, Sir.”

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.
