Over and Over Again


When Luca Ward was five years old, he swore he would love Imre Claybourne forever. Years later, that promise holds true—and when Luca finds himself shipped off to Imre’s North Yorkshire goat farm in disgrace, long-buried feelings flare back to life when he finds, in Imre, the same patiently stoic gentle giant he’d loved as a boy.

The problem?

Imre is more than twice Luca’s age.

And Luca’s father’s best friend.

I dug this out of my kindle because I wanted to look something up and fell back into this story I've read before because it's just as delicious a slow burn wonder as it was the first time I read it.


Hope Diamond: The Legendary History of a Cursed Gem


There may or may not be a cursed gemstone in my Royal Powers story, and it may or may not be inspired by the legendary "cursed" Hope Diamond. I've seen the Hope Diamond before and it's really stunning. The curse is mostly fiction, but this story about the history of the diamond and how the curse evolved is still really interesting.


Crossing Lines


I asked for recs in a FB group a little while ago of stories where one of the characters has a Prince Albert piercing (why? WTF not?) and this was a great one. It's part of a series, but I hadn't read any of the prior books and it works as a standalone. 

When Matt is propositioned by Jasper, a hot older guy, he’s more than down. That is until he realizes Jasper has a boyfriend, and Matt would be joining them both. He’s not into it, especially since the boyfriend is a jerk. Jasper is not used to rejection. He didn’t become one of the most successful and highest-paid executives in all of Hollywood by accepting defeat. After dumping his boyfriend (who really is a jerk), Jasper finds himself going out of his way to get to know what’s behind Matt’s reluctance when it’s clear there is a mutual attraction between them. 

Spoiler alert: it's Matt who has the Prince Albert piercing.


Spring Strings


Malachi Booth is a supermodel. He’s used to moving about the world, sleeping with whoever takes his fancy and watching the money roll in. The last place he expects to find himself is on a run-down farm in Cornwall, but a bad bout of bronchitis means that he’s stuck there. The only compensation for this dismal state of affairs is that the farmer is very good looking, even if he’s the grumpiest person that Malachi has ever met.

Malachi is far bitchier than Cadan (the farmer) is grumpy, but I liked how their relationship progresses until they both realize they're perfect for each other. I don't know why it tickles me that Malachi reports that he cried like a baby when his ears were pierced but then took his dick piercing like a man, but it just does. 


Coming Out On Top


Quentin is searching for…something. Respect. Answers. His identity. Most of all, he’s searching for a man who will let him be in charge, despite the fact that he looks like an elf. 

But all that will have to wait because right now, he’s searching for shelter after getting stranded in the middle of nowhere, New York with a massive snow storm about to hit. He finds an unexpected host in Mac, a man the whole town seems to hate. Mac has secrets…but so does Quentin. 

Sparks fly between them, but can it lead to more when Mac is twice his size, a lot older, and practically a virgin… and when Mac can’t leave and there’s no way Quentin will stay?

Age gap, some D/s kink, a tiny bit of bondage, lip and septum piercings, but sadly, no Prince Albert until the very end. Still a great story, though.
