Sometimes it’s a sentence or two. Sometimes an arresting image, the ragged edge of a dream, or even a random thought. No matter how it comes, I will usually seize it and shake the hell out of it until I bend it to my will, letting it become a promotion. In some cases, it can become a novel. That’s a story for another blog!

Here are a couple of ideas that arrived in the past few days. I hope they make you want to read the book(s).

One of the shining reviewer stars on Amazon and Goodreads is a man named simply “Bo.” He really should write for a living (if he does not already). The burning rose image at the top of this page was inspired by Bo, from a brief comment he left one day right here on my blog. Let this be my homage to a very fine and insightful reviewer, and of course if it sells a few books I will not complain!

Hot, taut, and Scot. A scorching series from Erin O’Quinn.

BURNS TOO DEEP: An undercover cop encounters a very desirable man who’s running from the law. What could go wrong?

THE DUNDEE LAW: The men step far too close to a shallow grave, on an ancient burial mound in Dundee.

Just this morning, trolling through my “Pages” feed on Facebook, I saw the following photo of a twisty-limbed bristlecone pine. In a flash of memory, it brought me back to my days in Nevada…on the slopes of Mt. Moriah, gazing at the panorama of unique bristlecones there…the actual setting of my first Nevada Highlander novel.

The following promotion is one I’m using to remind readers, this book and its companions are fresh and compelling. I hope the image speaks volumes.

Here’s a book you won’t see for a while. Because three-fourths of it lies in my fevered brain. It’s the third of the “Nevada Highlander” series, starring a Scot and a cop. The title is HUNTER’S POINT.

better litehouse

The title refers to two objects: first, the little stone house where former state trooper Alex has moved after leaving Rory’s massive castle bedroom. Second, it’s the distinctive lighthouse called Scurdie Ness which lies at the end of Montrose Promontory on Scotland’s northeast shore. That’s where our guys have found clues to a probable murder.

I guess I’ll have to admit that this book is full of phallic symbols—none more potent than the dicks of its main characters. The one which, ah, emerges in this chapter is no different in shape, intent, or effect.

In this section, perpetually-aroused Rory has had to stop in the middle of a promising interlude with his lover. For the last few hours, his balls have been aching; and Alex, fully aware of his pain, has prolonged it maybe a little too much for Rory to tolerate gracefully…


He really tried to escape those redwood stumps Rory called arms, and he turned his face from the close beard browsing his neck and chin, then the teeth biting his lower lip, drawing blood. A distant part of his brain told him this encounter should be taking place downstairs, in the training room. Except there, neither of them could ever be sure when someone might come in. Like Kenneth Drummond, for instance. But now, today, they were alone, in a very private place. And this man’s father was somewhere in the Cairngorms.

“Let me go, goddammit, Rory.”

“When wolfhounds foogin fly. Stand still. Or pay the price.”

Rory began to suck his tongue while trying his best to unbutton Alex’s denims.

The man’s fumbling fingers and expert tongue combined to stuff his cock with a gallon of hot, ready blood.

“You’ll ruin another pair of jeans. Son of a bitch, Rory, stop.”

“Then stand still, you cock sucker.”

“Asshole licker.”

The deliberately abusive language fired both of them. Alex allowed the clumsy fingers to open his fly, then to take his pants down over his ready ass. As big as he was—hardly an inch shorter than Rory, and maybe twenty pounds lighter—the Scot picked him up as though he was a rodeo rider’s saddle and flung him over one shoulder, bearing him to the bed.

Too late, he saw the coil of rope on the surface of the crisp linens. He wondered how long it had been lying right there, waiting for Alex to fall into the open maw of Rory’s enormous sexual appetite.

Alex was strong, and his martial skills were many. He’d honed his techniques most of his life, knowing a gay man had to protect himself. But Rory was stronger, and his own talents matched, hold for hold, feint for feint. They wrestled for at least five minutes, each pinning his opponent for a few seconds before one or the other of them slipped the hold.

beard kiss 2All the while they slid in and out of each other’s arms, their mouths and tongues were never far apart. Alex strained to suck and bite Rory’s wide mouth, lick the hidden cleft in his chin. With every pump of his needing mouth, his prick seemed to stand straighter from its nest of wiry dark hair.

At last he found himself belly down on the bed and Rory was clamping his wrists together at his tailbone while he flailed and swore at the tightening rope.

“Fuck you, Drummond. I swear, I’ll have your ass …”

“Aye, lad. I want you to have my ass. But I’ll have yours first.”

The next touch was alien. Hard, cold, smothered in gel, it stroked his taint and then circled his rim, slow. Rory’s downy mustache found his ear.

“I need to watch it, Alejo. See your ass swallow it and let it go. So let it happen. All right?”

“What the fuck is it?”

“You’ll find out. Take it, welcome it, tell me how much you love it.”

Sometime during that mumbled dialogue, Rory had slid a cock ring above his balls, choking off his need to spit cum into the goddamn sheets. How could the man be so three-thumbed with buttons, and so damned talented with sex toys and cock strokes?

The strange object began to sing, and Alex recognized it as a vibrator. By the time it was halfway up his asshole, he knew it wasn’t just a vibrator. It was a fucking anaconda, and Rory knew how to to take that slithering boa almost to the end of his waiting tunnel.

His head deep in the pillow, he began to moan, his words spilling in gobs of spit and lust. “Oh, oh, shit. Ah, god, I can’t stand it. Stop, oh, do it, do it.”


If you like Rory and Alex, maybe you’ll enjoy the first two novels.

Nevada Highlander has met with huge success. There’s just something about a bigger-than-life Scot, whether he’s wearing his native dress kilt; or whether he changes into Nevada cowboy boots, tight Levi’s and a stetson. And the man he falls for, the Colombian cop Alex, is as smoky-eyed and sexy as they come.

And hoo boy, do they come …

cboy truck 2

Here’s a scene when the guys stop along Highway 93, heading into Ely. Rory Drummond is horny as ever. Still early in their relationship, Alex Dominguez simply isn’t ready for the man’s direct way of declaring his interest. This scene is told from the Scot’s point of view.


They were approaching the strange little oasis he’d eyed on the way to the ranch this morning, a petrol station and eating establishment, standing as a traveler’s last relief on the road into Ely before the road began to curve into Connors Pass. His stubborn cock told him he needed that same final release.

“Alex. Pull behind that … general store? I need to take a piss.” His companion smiled and slowed, then banked in behind the quaint cluster of clapboard buildings and hand-made signs telling him this was “Major’s Place.”

He unclasped his seat belt. “We can go inside, you know. Drink some coffee, take a wiz.”

Rory shook his head and clambered out of the van, coming around to the driver’s side. He didn’t bother to shield his cock from Alex’s sight as he brought it out of the confining Levi’s, pissing damned near five feet from him as he watched his lover watch his prick, fighting the erection as his urine dribbled and sputtered into the dry ground.

Finally he could fight it no more. His dick had decided to stand sentinel out here in the fragrant brush, defying the cold wind, the distant hum of passing vehicles, and every effort Rory made to empty his bladder. Alex was too close, his own desire too adamant. He opened the passenger door, his Levi’s gaping open and his cock stiff as a brick.holy jeans

“You promised me a moment of privacy, laddie. I claim that moment for my own. Right now.” He reached to Alex, sliding an arm behind the small of his back. His other hand took the man’s denim crotch, his fingers in the crack and his thumb stroking the balls, easily bringing him from behind the wheel and into his chest.

The crotch was rock-hard, the chest was already heaving against his own as though in automatic denial. Alex pushed against his ribcage, his deep-set eyes defying this impetuous choice of love nest.

“Not here, damn it. Any freaking tourist could wander back here—”

“Don’t fight me, lad. This is more private than our damn cabin. I want you.” He buried his mouth in Alex’s jaw, biting and murmuring, reached his ear, fucked it wetly.

Alex was angry, he saw that immediately, and the anger was palpable enough to sing to his ready prick, fire his asshole a mile up his butt. “You can’t just grab me any goddamn time you feel like it. Get that straight. I’m not your ’ho. Understand?”

“Nay.” He began to finger the foogin buttons on Alex’s shirt, not even smarting when he slapped his hands away with a resounding smack. “Do that on my ass, lad, and I’ll come a mile high. God, yes, take down my trousers and show me how much you hate this.”

Alex was a strong man, almost as powerful as his determined assailant. Rory knew he had the advantage, because the place between his lover’s legs was so full of rock-hard cock the zipper had begun to gape open. No man so aroused would fight him until the bitter end. His desperate desire would overwhelm the instinct to fight back. He knew that fact intimately, and he used it.

He pinned Alex to the seat back and stared into the endless dark of his eyes. “Listen to me. The more you fight me, the more I want you. Want you to the foogin heart of me.” Something flickered in the man’s eyes, his tight mouth began to take on a loose, sulky pout. Instantly, Rory seized the advantage and began to bite the lower lip. He nibbled and gnashed, stroked and fondled until his lover’s tongue began to answer. First hesitant, still unsure. Next seeking its own vengeance, almost choking him with stabs of powerful need, then tearing at his mouth until they were both drawing blood and moaning.kiss m:m

Rory managed to lower his Levi’s to his thighs, then began to work on Alex’s button. He was thrashing and struggling, and his knee connected with his chin, sending a sharp pain all the way to the top of his skull. He felt his own grin widen as the hard blow served to channel his lust into single-minded intensity.

“Fight me, lad. I swear to God I’ll break your metal button. I’ll tear the zipper from these bloody trousers.” Alex relaxed for a few heartbeats, breathing hard, enough time for Rory to pull the Levi’s forcibly almost to his knees, exposing his sledgehammer of a cock.

“I want that up my ass.”


“Show me how much you hate it, lad.” In a few deft moves, he was sitting on Alex’s ramrod prick. He’d already palmed the gel from his Levi’s pocket, and now he opened the cap with his teeth then spat it onto the seat. With one hand, he smeared lube over every finger and began to probe and withdraw until he saw Alex’s eyes begin to glaze with the need for more, deeper.

“Show me how pissed you are. You prick.” He actually did not expect the stinging blow on his ass cheek which sent a crack of lightning into the farthest reaches of his ass. Now aroused fully as a maddened bull, desperate to encase that wedge of a wide cock, he grasped it, lubed it, and guided it straight up his butt.levi bum:ring

“No!” Alex’s cry came accompanied by another hard slap on the opposite cheek. His eyes watering at the intensity of his joy, Rory sank even deeper onto the blade of the man’s weapon, needing to explode, yet still wanting his lover to blow his seed to kingdom come, all the way to his prostate and beyond, to the gates of heaven.

Letting Alex’s thick cock coat his hole, he moved as a wave would seize the shore then recede, letting the instinctive rhythm intensify his lover’s cries. When he saw the orgasm begin to build in the man’s brooding eyes, he couldn’t stop pushing the invading cock ever inward, the spasms of his entire asshole gripping the length of his lover’s flesh while they screamed into each other’s mouth, a primal roar of release.

Afterwards, he straddled Alex and smoothed his cheeks, traced his handsome jaw bristled with morning beard. Some instinct told him not to speak, to let the man come to terms with being almost bloody raped. His near gentleness now was a need as powerful as his earlier frenzy to seize and be seized. The calm after the storm. Two deep needs, each balancing the other.

“You are a bastard and a bully.”

“Aye, lad.”

“That’s the last time you’ll get the better of me.”

Rory looked into his eyes, found a profound satisfaction there, and allowed himself a slight smile. “Good. I need to be taken down a few notches. You’re the only man I’ve ever met who could do it.” Alex relaxed a little, allowing Rory’s finger to continue its path along his jaw, down to the hollow of his throat.

“Do you think you have to make love like a bull elephant? Are you always so … abrupt in your sex habits?”

“Sex habits? I have none. And until you lad, I’ve never made love to a man.”

Enough. Let me not get this close, else I may never pull away.

He leaned a little and kissed Alex, as full of restrained passion as his torn lips would allow. “Time to find me a ten-gallon hat, Alex. All this riding has fired my need to be a cowboy.”

A rancher’s son goes to Scotland in search of his family roots. Fate brings him to the door of an oversized, cranky castle laird. After getting off on the wrong, er, boot…the men find something about each other to delve into more deeply. But fate can be a cruel matchmaker. 

Finding the Loch Ness monster…a contemporary #gay #romance- #fantasy novella.


They were close as a whisker. So close Hugh felt a movement of his kilt, where the guardian sporran used to be. It was now pulled to the side, and the lump he felt was not the man’s purse.

That was his signal.

He cupped the chin and brought Guthrie’s face to within an inch of his own. He raised his head only a little. Only a touch at first, a brushing of lips, a tongue running along the wide mouth, still shut, seeming not to yield.

Another truth came to him in another moment of wonder. This man has never had a real kiss before.

So softly it seemed to be almost unspoken, Hugh finally broke their long silence. “It’s okay. Open for me.”

first kiss C&K=pizap.com14273076818993


He found a small opening and breached it, sliding his tongue inside, and then his cock decided to try bursting from his suit pants. He moaned, and Guthrie opened his mouth wider. Hugh cupped the man’s jaws and entered his mouth, deep, his tongue searching the inside, slicking its way deeper. He pulled out a little, lingering on the bottom lip.

In a frenzy of need, he sank his teeth into the flesh of that lip, savoring the soft rush of blood, licking it clean.

He spoke into the wounded mouth. “Suck my tongue. Will you?”

The answering voice came low. “Call me Graeme.”

“Suck my tongue, Graeme.”
