Hump Day Eye Candy, May 4

Something inspiring for the writing I’ll be doing today……

Writing Update

gratuitous hotness having nothing to do with my writing update

Coming Soon:

Shifter’s Galaxy: Accommodating Desire, an m/m/f short story, will be available very soon from Changeling Press. I loved having the chance to revisit my Shifter’s Station world with this story, and I’ve got several more story ideas for this spin off series.  Here’s an unofficial blurb:

Shifter’s Galaxy: Accommodating Desire by Silvia Violet

Lucy Vasilia is the director of the Alkestis Market, a well-run trading center
catering to both legitimate and black market concerns. She’s not a woman who
normally mixes business with pleasure, but shipping tycoon, Ian Hadley’s
dominating presence and cool control make her knees weak. When he
matter-of-factly proposes a three way with his lover, Security Chief, Connor
Langley, she decides to make an exception and give herself over to pleasure
for an afternoon. But Ian and his dark, dominating lover want far more from
her than a few hour’s dalliance. They intend to make her acknowledge their
soul-deep connection, and they won’t be satisfied until they’ve claimed her in
every possible way.

Seduction of the Captain, a BDSM sci fi set in the same world as Surrender in the Dark, will be coming your way this summer.

Works in Progress

I’m currently working on Protect and Serve: Sex on the Hoof. This is Jason, Natalie’s brother from Savage Wolf‘s, story. I love writing for this series and Jason and his lover, Drew, are a roller coaster ride of humor, angst, and dirty fun.

I’ve got lots of other projects bouncing around in my head. But I think once Sex on the Hoof is done, I’ll be focused on Wet: Reef’s Guardian, part of an upcoming multi-author series for Changeling. I know this one is going to be fun because one of the characters is a cuttlefish shifter. Oh the things I’ll be able to do with that 🙂

After that I’ve got a m/m Christmas story that’s been begging for my attention as well as one featuring intergalactic spies, betrayal, confusion and seriously hot sex.

M/M Reading Recommendations

I’ve been on an m/m reading kick lately. My favorite m/m stories are ones where both men are alphas and they have to struggle to find a working relationship dynamic. Two series I’ve started recently that fit this description and have blown me away with their awesomeness are Brannan Black’s Wolfman series and Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux’s Cut and Run series. Recently I asked for recommendations for books that fit this description on ARe Cafe and at Love Romances Cafe, and I wanted to share the list I’ve compiled. I haven’t read any of these yet, but based on recommendations from readers (and in some cases the authors themselves) and my reading of the blurbs and excerpts, they fit the description of two strong-willed characters who will have to work out the power dynamics to make their relationship work. I’d love to hear more suggestions so feel free to share in the comments.
