I Lied - Pieces of Stronghold Release

Guys, I lied.

For once, I've been able to push a release date FORWARD.

Guess what's available to buy today?  Only 99 cents!  Please don't forget to leave a review =)  Reviews are super helpful!  And I really want to know how people feel about this novella since it's different from any of my previous Stronghold books (or any other book that I've released).


Available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Smashwords.

The Stronghold Doms and their submissives are anxiously watching as Jared and Leigh, both on the rebound from seven year, emotionally turmoiled, relationships take the first tentative steps towards something more than friendship. Leigh isn't sure she's a submissive, but she's intrigued and spending more and more time in the club. Jared isn't sure he can handle a relationship with yet another woman who can't fulfill all his needs, but he can't deny the sunshine that Leigh has brought back into his life. 

With the past snapping at their heels, their friends worried about their futures, their choices could make or break the happiness of their entire group of friends. 

This novella is told from multiple points of view, including Jared, Leigh, Olivia, Justin, Chris, Jessica, Patrick and Lexie. It can be read as a standalone, but is much more fulfilling when read as part of the Stronghold series. This novella contains BDSM, whippings, spankings, domestic discipline, and lots of hot, steamy alpha males and sassy subs getting it on. 

Pieces of Stronghold is approx. 58,800 words long and includes a bonus mini-story that was released in a free newsletter for Christmas 2014 by YellowSilkDreams as a chapter from the point of view of Will and Gina.

  2. ZOMG love it! Master Mike sneaking up on Ellie is totally the best part. Truckstop not so much.

    Love how Kate is integrating back into the story though I have to say i feel like you've rushed the plot twist on that one a bit (unless the plot twist isn't what I think it is in which case, good show!).

    I know it may be a while before we head back to visit Hot Chocolate and Crusty Cock but I'm super pumped to see where everyone is headed!!

    1. heh heh, yeah I enjoyed the NYE countdown =)

      Not telling anything about the plot twist, all I'm going to say is while there were a few hints scattered around about Kate and Andrew, so far none of my beta readers (or the characters in the story) have guessed exactly what went down although they all have an idea that encompasses part of it.

      Glad you enjoyed it!

    2. Are we free to put comments with our thoughts on what happened between Kate and Andrew (with the clues we noticed from the book) or would you prefer to each their own?

    3. It's a free country =D Although I won't participate in the discussion. Since this book came out, I've had people emailing me guesses and some have gotten very close, but if there's a discussion on it then I'll stay out of it to keep any possibilities of "mystery" alive =)

    4. Alright then. At some point, Kate mentioned she has a scar. She also told Andrew that whatever it was wasn't his fault, he said it was his fault because he was the Dom. She still maintains that she's a masochist, we all know he's a sadist. Whatever it was happened before the club, she noticed the guys all seemed much more.. confidently alpha than they did before, so they have more experience than they did when the incident happened. Kate and Andrew both admired the shibari clothing, and I believe both flinched when someone suggested Kate be tied up that way.

      My guess is she asked for and he gave more than she could handle. He feels that he should have been able to read her better and he let things go too far. He never told anyone what happened because he's ashamed that he let things get out of hand and he wanted to give her the privacy to recover.

      I really don't know what kind of scar rope play could leave that's not.. seriously detrimental. The only thing that comes to mind is lack of sensation due to restricted blood flow caused another issue of some sort, with caning or piercing or some such.

  3. Oh and can I just say how much I adore shibari clothing? More rope please?!?! :)

    1. I'll work on it =D I've got some research to do, because I know very little about it (although I once got used as a practice dummy and, despite my initial misgivings since I'm a bit claustrophobic, I really enjoyed the experience).
