Christmas in Cedarwood
Two men, one kid, and the frayed nerves that come with the holidays… Can they make it through to Christmas without a blow-up?

Colt Harrison knew when he met Ashley Willis that he’d found the one man for him. He loves Ashley’s son, Wyatt, as if he were his own. But the stress of living together, compounded with buying a home and adopting pets, has worn him down…not to mention the aggravation that comes with the diner he owns. He wants to make Christmas special for his family, but how can they have a great holiday when Colt’s never home?

Ashley’s got a two-week vacation from his job at the elementary school teaching art. All he wants is time with Colt and Wyatt. He loves Colt, but not the long hours spent at the diner, especially around the holidays. Can he be honest about what he wants from Colt and keep the man he loves?

Anything is possible if they embrace the magic of Christmas.

Bonus story included! 

Single in Springdale
Can two lonely hearts find their way to each other despite the odds?

Dr. Isaac McLean knows he’s not supposed to lust after a patient, but there’s something about Len Connor that he can’t forget. His laugh? His strong will? His sexy body. But will Len want to be with his former doctor?

Len Connor wasn’t looking to get back into the dating scene, but a chance meeting with Isaac at the animal shelter has him thinking otherwise. Isaac is sweet, funny and oh, so handsome. But he’s also at least twenty years younger than Len. Will this cougar get his cub and have a happy ending? Or will the relationship fall apart before it gets started?

Colt sipped his wine and stared at the tree. The warm light from the tiny bulbs cast a soft glow across the room. He wished the snow were falling.

“You picked out a pretty tree.” Ashley bumped shoulders with Colt. “I love it.”

“I like the one you selected too.” He draped his arm around Ashley. “It’ll be even better once we decorate it.” He paused. “Come upstairs with me.”

“You haven’t finished your wine.” Ashley gulped his. “I can’t waste it.”

Colt finished the rest of his, then placed the glass on the end table. “Now?”

“Okay.” Ashley scooped up both glasses. “You know better than to leave these out. If the dogs don’t knock them over, Wyatt will.” He carried the stemware to the kitchen, then stopped in the doorway. “Now I’m ready.”

Colt waited until he and Ashley were upstairs and the door to the bedroom closed before he spoke…just in case Wyatt wasn’t totally asleep. “I’ve wanted this all day.”

“Have you?” Ashley kissed him. “I have too.” He feathered his lips across Colt’s. “I loved the surprise. It almost makes up for missing you.”

“I know and I’m sorry.” He unbuttoned Ashley’s pants. “I wish I didn’t have to be away so much.” He pushed the denim down Ashley’s thighs. His underwear went with the tight jeans, exposing Ashley’s cock.

“But you are.” Ashley swayed with Colt and rubbed his newly freed dick against the bulge in Colt’s pants.

Colt held Ashley tightly and mashed his mouth on Ashley’s, then swallowed his moan. Ashley shoved Colt’s shirt out of the way and scraped his nails over Colt’s chest. The sting ricocheted within Colt.

“Ash,” Colt murmured.

“Yeah?”

“Want to be inside you.”

#Blissemas ~ Megan Slayer dishes about #writing #Christmas in July and shares a sexy snippet from her release, Christmas in Cedarwood #gayromance #eroticromance

22359501_1742596722708601_2122649305_n

I love Christmas. I love writing about it. Why? Because there’s magic. It’s in the air, in the way we interact with each other and I can’t get enough. I’m the nut watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel in July because I’m excited.

So this Christmas season, the Season of Blissemas! Yay!! I look forward to this time of year, each December, too. I love Victoria Blisse and when she has this promotion, I’m all in. Thank you to her and Kev. You both rock.

Stay tuned to the end of the post. There’s a prize to be won. Keep reading!!! 22368999_1742596479375292_1827900047_o

I celebrated by writing not one, but three holiday themed stories. Yeah, I went a little overboard. This post features my book, Christmas in Cedarwood. If you’ve read my Single Father Society books, you’ll recognize Ashley and Colt from Rainbow Over Cedarwood. The thing about this couple is, I knew I wasn’t done with them when I wrote Rainbow. They had more to say.

But the hard part about writing Christmas stories is that you don’t write them in December, unless it’s for the following Christmas season. The lag takes that long to get the book polished, edited and ready for publication. That’s not a bad thing, but it makes writing a Christmas story in July or earlier a little difficult. It’s hard to get into the spirit of the season when you’re sweating. Ha ha! But I did and I’m happy with how Colt and Ashley’s story worked out. These two guys are awesome and while their five days leading up to Christmas aren’t easy, they deal.

And did I mention there’s a bonus short story included for free? Yep. Single in Springdale, about Len, Aiden’s father, is included with Christmas in Cedarwood. I’m excited to bring this story to you.

See what you think.

Writing, Chaos, Order and a Whole Lot of Pens with @MeganSlayer #iamwriting #planning #posting #writing

I love my writing utensils. Love them. I’ve got a pen collection that’s probably out of control. Why? Because when I go somewhere, I want a pen to commemorate being there. Also, they look pretty. I tend to use the ink up in them, too. With my luck, once I decided to display the pens, the one with the ink left in it would explode and I’d have a mess. But that’s my luck.

But this post isn’t about just my love of pens…although based on the photos I added, you’d think it might be. Grin.

I wanted to write today about something that may seem small and silly, but it’s pretty big for me.

I’m a stress writer. Yep. I admit it. I am. I tend to know what I want to write and have deadlines, but for whatever reason, I seem to wait until I’m down to the wire before I get things done. That doesn’t mean I’m sitting around doing nothing. No…I’m usually finishing up whatever it was I put off before this project.

It’s not a good thing to do, stress writing. I tend to create these crazy schedules for myself, then stress when I don’t feel like I’m meeting my own deadlines. It’s worse during National Novel Writing Month (NaNo). I usually have a project to finish BEFORE I can start the NaNo one and then I try to get both done y the end of November (that’s the month NaNo takes place in).

Right now, I’m currently trying to wrap up a short for Changeling involving Christmas Magic. I won’t get into the gritty nitty, but it’s short and it’s HAWT. Before that, I finished another Christmas tale for another publisher. Because I love Christmas? Because the stories were begging to be written. Oh, and I’ve got another short planned for once the Changeling book is done. Have I lost my mind? Sometimes it feels like it.

I enjoy Christmas, don’t get me wrong. I love the joy, the togetherness and the fun of the holiday. But it’s July. It’s not entirely hard to think about snow (it’s been well into the 90s for temps here of late),  but I’m not really in the mindset to write Christmas. I won’t lie. When it’s Christmas time, then I’ve got all sorts of ideas for stories. It just happens to be too late or too early to turn them in (depending on who you ask). But the stories I just finished and am working on demanded to be written.

I don’t have big spreadsheets of what needs to be written and when. I might have a schedule that’s in my trusty notebook next to my laptop, but that’s got maybe a week or two out scheduling wise. I let the muse talk and pants my way through most of my stories. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t just write whatever pops into my head from the muse. That’s what ends up in the notebook where I can tweak it first. But it might be May and I’ll have the characters for a Christmas story show up. Or it might be Halloween and I want to write Valentines stories. Although, a mash-up of a Valentine Halloween might be fun.

So while I’m sure I rambled through this post, this is a clue into my writing world. There’s some order and some chaos, but it’s all mine and I own it. I might as well. 🙂

 

 

Vampires, Tigers and White Collar? with @MeganSlayer #PNR #vampires #shifters #paranormal

I bet you’re wondering where I got the wacky title for this post. Glad you’re wondering. MS_YouHaveMeI’m a visual writer. I’m a visual learner, too. What I mean is, I need visual stimulation when I write. In layman’s terms, I need a hot guy as inspiration for my stories. The guy doesn’t always have to be the same guy. Trust me, the guy changes a lot. From story to story, usually.

For example, when I started the Battle Scarred series, I binge watched the television show, White Collar. Ever heard of it? There’s a guy who is a forger and a thief who ends up working with and for the Feds. From an art perspective, I loved it. I mean, art and a hot guy? I’m in. What really hooked me was the intelligent writing. Oh and Matt Bomer was danged cute. I loved how he pulled off the suits and the fedoras with ease. The more I watched him, the more I could see him—and those blue eyes—as a vampire. But not just any vampire. One MS_YouOwnMethat died in the 1940’s and was all about the look. That’s where Kynan, from You Have Me, was born. Kynan’s a dominant man—in and out of the bedroom. He can’t just be there. He’s got to be in charge. That’s where Matt Bomer fit the bill. He can stare at you with those eyes and you’re paralyzed. Okay, maybe I’d be the one who is paralyzed—and drooling—but who’s counting? See? He was just the visual inspiration I needed.

In You Own Me, Kynan’s best friend who also happens to be a tiger shifter, has his turn to tell his story. He’s nothing like Kynan. Where Kynan’s tall, dark and sophisticated, Creighton, my tiger shifter, is bulky, tall and foreboding. Sound like anyone you’ve ever seen? I could say he was inspired by the Rock, but that’s not entirely true. Creighton’s a blond. To a degree, he’s like Jake Gyllenhaal from Prince of Persia, but he’s bigger and blonder. So where exactly did I get the idea for Creighton? Thor. I love my Marvel movies. Love ‘em. I’ve got all but the Hulk on my computer in digital form. When I write, I listen to those movies. So yeah, quite a bit of Thor seeped into Creighton. Hey, he’s a hot guy and I was inspired. Grin. Plus, Creighton’s the kind of guy who fills a room and looks menacing. Chris Hemsworth, aka Thor, does that well. I can never quite tell what he’s thinking, even when he smiles and it’s a little unnerving. But that’s Creighton, too. Big, scary, but a teddy bear in the right circumstances.

There are two more books in the series. Who was the inspiration for each of those stories? Well, you’ll have to keep reading the series and your eyes peeled for more posts to find out.

FRIDAY FLIRT BANNERHere’s a teaser from my latest work, Doc Cedarwood. I hope you enjoy. I love this story so much. I can’t wait to get back to their world 🙂

Doc Cedarwood by Megan Slayer MS_SFS5_DocCedarwood

Single Father Society, Book 5

Full Length Novel

Contemporary, M/M, Anal Sex

From Loose Id Publishing

Cover Art by April Martinez

 

Can an accident and a rim job lead to a lasting love?

Aiden Connor wasn’t looking for a date. Sure, he wanted one, but relationships seem to be too difficult to maintain. He’s an ER doctor and doesn’t have time for commitment…that is until he runs over a curb and needs a new rim for his sports car. The mechanic isn’t anything like he expects, but could be the one man he needs if he’s willing to open his mind and heart.

Matt Phillips equated dating with disaster, but sees himself as an eternal optimist. When he sees Aiden, he wants to give relationships a try. Every cell in his body screams to get the sexy doctor naked and in his bed. But Matt has demons and addictions he’s still working through. Will he fall prey to his past or learn and move forward with the hot doctor?

“Hi.” Matt stood before him, clad in the tightest white shirt and baggy jeans. He folded his arms. The fabric strained and displayed both his muscles and his ink. “Thought I’d find you here.”

“Me?” Aiden asked. “I’m not anyone special.”

“You’re a doctor.” Matt crossed the expanse and threaded his arms around Aiden. “I’ve wanted to kiss you since I met you.” He mashed his mouth down on Aiden’s, taking control immediately.

Aiden wanted to protest. He wanted to talk more and get to know Matt, but the kiss… He ground his crotch against Matt’s and caressed Matt’s back. He’d seen every inch of him when Matt had been in the ER, but having the man in his embrace kicked his senses into overdrive.

Matt leaned back long enough to rest his forehead on Aiden’s and groan. “Like that?”

He nodded. Any words were lost the moment he looked into Matt’s blue eyes. He wanted more from Matt—not just a kiss or a touch, but sex.
