~WooHoo, I am excited to have Cat Grant on the blog again. Please give her a warm wlecome by saying hello and commenting for a chance at winning some something awesome.~
At last count, I’d written five different series – one m/m/f ménage,
the other four m/m. I didn’t set out to write so many, but when those
pesky secondary characters start demanding their own stories, what can
That’s how I ended up writing about male hookers, a drag queen, a
former teen idol and a trans Ferrari mechanic. And I’ve got an MMA
fighter, a Naval Academy cadet and his hard-assed Marine DI tapping on
my shoulder as I type.
But first I have to finish revising and re-editing the Courtland
Chronicles, my very first series, which I’m self-publishing starting
this month. I’ve also got the third book in my Irresistible Attraction
series coming out this month from Riptide Publishing – and I just turned
in book #4.
The great thing about series is that I know the characters,
settings, etc., pretty well by the time the second or third book rolls
around, which makes it easy to jump right in and get the story rolling.
However, Irresistible Attraction #4 proved a bit tricky, no
doubt because I had the audacity to title it Flawless. I mean, talk
about tempting fate, right? Normally I can knock out a fairly complete,
non-awful first draft, but this book fought me from the first page. I
had to put it aside for few weeks and come back to it after I’d gotten
some perspective – and my characters started talking to me again.
But I can’t complain. This writing gig’s been very good to me. Every
day I sit down at my keyboard grateful for all the wonderful readers
who’ve made my dream of becoming a full-time writer possible.
And of course, all the wonderful characters who tell me their
stories. It’s crazy here in my head, but at least I’ve got plenty of

campus emergency saddles him with an unwanted roommate.

prepared for, but Nick’s warm, easygoing manner gradually cracks through
Eric’s prickly protective shell.
After Eric suffers a
traumatic attack, their friendship gives way to an intense passion.
Eric’s no stranger to casual sex, but what he feels for Nick is
something deeper, and more fragile.

And Fearless …
How can you plan for the future when escaping the past seems impossible?
over a year together, Connor Morrison and Wes Martin decide to tie the
knot. But an ethics complaint regarding their deeply non-traditional
relationship threatens Connor’s job and Wes’s Ph.D. The fact that Connor
tried to keep it from Wes—even with the best of intentions—makes the
situation even worse and casts a pall over their plans for a Christmas
wedding in New York.
It doesn’t help that Connor still treats
Wes like glass, though Wes insists he’s recovered from the brutal
assault he suffered a year and a half earlier. Wes may be okay, but
Connor isn’t. Memories of taking a battered, terrified Wes to the
emergency room that night still haunt him, and he can’t let go of the
need to protect Wes from any and everything life might throw at him.
Wes has had enough. Between the specter of the ethics complaint and
Connor’s overprotectiveness, he’s already beginning to question their
plans. Add in a family ashamed of and angered by his choices, and Wes
might just leave Connor standing at the altar.
