Of all the men in Chaps, the huge leather club in Denver, Colorado, Beast is by far the largest. His size belies his gentle nature, however and has made it hard for him to find his perfect submissive. Either men want him to hurt them, or they run away in terror that he will hurt them. All he wants is a man to pamper and dote on, controlling only his pleasure without pain and to share him with others with group kink play.
As part of Chaps’s lonely hearts club, he and his best friends commiserate that they will never find their soulmates, or even their matches in their kinky lifestyle, while Rebel and Jack Colton find a new way to keep their fires lit. Meeting Hunter and Ethan Westmore, they discover they had been neglecting their passion and when the men get together, the heat they share cannot be contained.
Sebastian Blacksnake is young and doesn’t believe in love or relationships. He has nowhere to go until, after the death of the man he was staying with, Lonnie Lane and Travis Walton take him into their home and their life. They get him a job at the sub house, a home for displaced submissives, and he meets Beast, who takes an instant like to the much younger man.
Lonnie Lane has a devastating loss in his family and as he deals with the aftermath, he comes to realize that things are missing from his life. He finds a journal and learns things about his lost family member, a story of love and loss that breaks his heart. It also brings him closer than he could ever imagine to Sebastian.
Miscommunications keep Beast and Sebastian apart. Neither realizes for a long time how much they belong together until Sebastian reads the journal and it reaches into his heart, making him open to the thought that he could not only have the freedom he wants, but a great love as well.
With visits from Dennis, Deb, Rebel, Jack, Hunter, Ethan, Brian, Morgan and Pez, this books within a book gives the reader a glimpse into many hearts and many ways of life, with some very unexpected results. Sometimes things work out, sometimes they don’t. After all, all life really is, is maybe…
Q: How did you come up with the concept of the Denver Diaries?
A: No matter how many other places I’ve lived; Colorado will always be home. I spent a lot of time in Denver, lived there for a few years and visited every summer when I was a kid. It was the next logical step after I made Apishipa Creek. A big city, huge club with Chaps, and more opportunities to have fun and quirky characters. Though they are all connected, they all can be read alone, which I like.
Q: The club, Chaps, that you mentioned, tell me about it?
A: Chaps is a fictional club in Denver. It’s a leather club, but so much more. All kinds of fetishes and kinks are welcome there. There are five stories besides the basement where the offices and storage are. The first floor is the bar, meeting area. There is a dance floor, go-go boys dancing here and there and the huge horseshoe shaped bar near the doors. The second and third floors are filled with private and public sex rooms where patrons can go and either keep the curtains open for other to view their play, or closed to be private. The fourth floor has stages for public shows, dancers and D.J.s on certain nights. The fifth is the VIP area, nearly sheer ceiling to floor curtains everywhere to give a little privacy, but not much.
Q: You brought Lonnie Lane and Travis Walton to Denver for this series. What are they up to now that they are out of Apishipa Creek?
A: Lonnie is a detective in the Denver Police Department. Travis, of course, bought Chaps after selling Manacle to Brandon Love. They are happy there, though they miss their friends from Apishipa Creek. In the Denver Diaries, we get visits from all of those characters, we get to know new regulars like Beast, the head of security at Chaps, his friend, Clay, the head bartender there and Lidia, the one and only Domme in the place. Maybe is Beast’s story, but others are going to be features in upcoming books. There are limitless chances for stories with this collection. I will write them until there is no interest and then move on to something else, although I will be putting other books out as well.
Q: Do you have any plans for Lidia? Being that she’s the only Domme, are we going to see an M/F or F/F from you in the future?
A: I plan on it, but either it will be a small book or a part of one of the larger stories. In the third book of the collection, I am already setting it up for Lidia to get her story.
Hi I’m Rain and I write contemporary M/M romance some with a BDSM slant. My book Honky Tonk, is the first I am publishing but not the first I’ve written.
