But when an unwelcome visitor targets the team, Misha revisits his darkest days, which might cost him and Max the beginning they’ve worked so hard to build.

Book Blast: Second Chances Complete Series by Rain Carrington

Blurb:
Losing love, real love, can break a man. The pain it causes cannot be taken away, but when that love walks back in, the possibilities of a second chance are too tempting to pass up. Brian Lauder lost a love, the love of his life, when Morgan Cherik walked out two years before. He wallowed in self-pity and alcohol until he tried to get past it, moving on to a new man, who came into his life as a rent boy but became much more.

Morgan’s rain drenched skin couldn’t contain the strawberry scent of him, or camouflage his tears of regret. As Nicolas Perez, Pez, steps aside, Brian takes Morgan back, wondering if he can regain all they’d lost.

It wouldn’t be easy for Morgan to earn his place back at his beloved Master’s feet. Brian was angry and hurt, and the sadist in him put Morgan through paces he’d never imagined. Still, there was a great love there between them, if only Brian could forget Pez.

A chance encounter at a club lets him see what Pez has been up to since walking away from Brian, and he comes back to the house, to the couple he’d allowed to get back together with his leaving. Right away, he and Morgan fight. The hatred and jealousy enrages them, but Brian realizes he wants them both and enlists help to make it happen.

Tensions do not abate easily. The two men are both passionately in love with Brian, but when their own desires for one another ignite, they begin to think that the threesome could work and they could be happy.

Morgan goes back to work, modeling kinky gear for Slutae and Pez’s dream also comes true when he is hired as the company’s marketing executive. With a huge launch at Chaps coming, where Pez has a contract with Travis Walton, the club’s owner, for his staff to wear the company’s products exclusively, Morgan is set to be the star of the show. Who thought anything could go wrong?

Tragedy strikes and strikes again. Brian starts to question his own sanity even as he attempts to help the clients at the women’s prison he works for as a psychologist. His boys feel helpless and alone, but a friend from Brian’s past comes to get him back to the old Brian, dominant and confident.

Twists and turns, this threesome is never sure they can work out. Watch as these men attempt to overcome jealousies, turmoil, pain and loss. Friends step in when needed, and their lifestyle of BDSM gets them through times when nothing else can.

“Each couple in the relationship must have a strong love. It’s a triangle. Brain and Morgan, Morgan and Pez and Pez and Brian being the corners; if they all aren’t strong, then the triangle itself isn’t strong. It’ll buckle.”

A rebel uprising is on the horizon.

Marble-maker Rye Cunnings is at the center of it all—and doesn’t know it.

He doesn’t know he’s the lost summer prince. Doesn’t know his blood can unlock Winter’s curse. Doesn’t know why the marbles he makes flutter with magic. All he thinks is that he’s crazy. That he sees things others don’t, like dragons and strange markings on his skin.

Help comes in the form of Cerdic Leit, a warrior who finds Rye to take him “home” to the Telluric Realm and their kind. All Rye has to do is follow him into Gatreau, the gateway to the four Telluric kingdoms, and all his questions will be answered.

In the hopes of saving Milo, Rye steps into this new and dangerous world. A world where he learns of the Tellurics and their Hansian foes. A world that is swept up in a bitter battle of justice and hate.

And a world that won’t let Rye leave again.

Blurb:
Even the best-planned experiment can have unpredictable consequences.

Max Allenby loves his job as a chemist with Armacom, developing new protective materials. He harbours a secret crush for the CEO, the stern and distant Blake Winters, which makes dealing with his harridan of a boss, Dr. Ella Preston, bearable.

Blake Winters is a lifestyle Dom. He spotted Max when he first joined Armacom, but has kept his distance from the talented, young scientist. When his Head of Security, who also happens to be Max’s older brother, tells him about Max’s feelings, Blake decides its time to make the pretty young man his.

Blake proposes a dating experiment to Max. For three hours a night over five nights, Max will give Blake his complete submission. Max is conflicted but decides to take the plunge and get a taste of a lifestyle he secretly craves.

Each date night introduces Max to a new level of submission. He loves every minute but is also conflicted—unable to believe a man like Blake wants him as anything more than a temporary plaything.

Blake understands that experiments do not always turn out as expected. He takes steps to convince Max of his feelings and to reassure him that his submissive streak is a strength, not a weakness.
