Welcome to Sunshine Reads Andrew!
Thanks, Trish and Sunshine Reads, for having me as a guest!
I’d like to share my latest book, Hard Times (Prison Masters 1). The title is a MMM contemporary erotic romance.
[Ménage and More ManLove: Erotic Alternative Consensual BDSM Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, HEA]
Ace Freeman is the president of Prison Masters, a BDSM club for gay males. He’s in love with cellmate Tyler Chase and guard Paul Ryder. Ace is Dominant, desiring to take both men as pets.
As an experienced sub, Tyler wants to give submission to two Masters. He slips an explicit drawing into Ace’s notebook. Later, he blurts out his affections for Paul. Tyler hopes his actions will gain collars from both men.
Underneath Paul’s shy and soft-spoken exterior lies a man who lives the BDSM lifestyle. Paul is a switch. The guard desires a Master who can fulfill his need for no limits, and a pet to dominate. However, Paul knows his desires for Ace and Tyler have the potential to cost his job.
A good Master cares for his pets. Ace believes that principle. Once a triad begins to form, Ace needs to find a way to ensure their love will survive even in the hard times.
Note: This book contains double anal penetration.
A Siren Erotic Romance
Hard Times (Prison Masters 1) was inspired by my photo below. Note the ‘Hard Times’ graffiti on the ceiling above the top bunk. I made the image during a walk-through of the county detention center in my hometown. The picture was included in a journalist article I wrote, documenting overcrowding and the deteriorating architectural structure of the facility.
In addition to the inspiration I received from the walk-through of the country detention center, the book is also loosely based on Tucker Unit, a maximum security prison in Arkansas.
The white scrubs for inmates, and the lines on the floor prisoners walk behind, are realistic. As of 2009, they are at least 100 inmates who live in a dormitory cell block. These are prison workers. Rather than actually addressing that in the book, I’ve alluded to it.
I gave my prison setting a new name, Tuckerville Unit. Also, Arkansas doesn’t have conjugal visits. My book does. 😉
This is my first book with characters in the BDSM lifestyle. While edgier, it is filled with the same romance, passion, and eroticism readers have come to expect from my work. I hope readers will walk away from Hard Times with a message that love is possible in any situation.
What am I working on now?
My WIPs include Rock Stars 4, Drag Show 2, and Prison Masters 2. In addition, I’m active with the writing groups ManLove Fantasies, Book Escape, and Writers Promoting Writers.
