blurbRory Sullivan thinks he has it all, until his boyfriend breaks his heart and the new landlord raises the rent on his bar. A chance meeting with Jin Yue, a rich dragon, gives Rory hope. Jin promises Rory he can save the bar and get even with his ex – for a price.

All Rory has to do is pretend to be in a relationship with Jin. Rory’s bad boy nature, and the desire for some no-strings-attached sex make the idea way too intriguing. Even if Rory’s brain thinks it’s a bad idea, his cock heartily disagrees.

Problem is, Jin Yue might be all kinds of hot, but he’s also Haven City’s one and only crime boss – sexy, powerful and deadly. Now Rory is tied to Jin until the dragon’s mission is complete, regardless of assassination attempts, hunters or the cops.

Jin Yue won the gang war, but the battle for Haven City isn’t over.

Enter Rory Sullivan – the tatted up fire mage who can help Jin lay claim to his rightful territory. However, things don’t turn out the way Jin plans. Rory pushes all the right buttons and riles up Jin’s dragon instincts. The fire mage is the farthest thing from Jin’s type, but the heat between them sets Jin’s blood on fire.

They’re playing a dangerous game that puts both of their hearts and lives on the line. While the passion between Jin and Rory sizzles, can a relationship built on deceit grow into something more?

Warning: contains violence and graphic gay sex scenes.

Interview

Thank you for coming to All I Want and More Books. We’re glad to have you here.

Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself…Something that we cannot Google about you J

I’m sort of obessed with vintage aluminum trailers like Airstreams and their kin. It’s a weird hobby, and I spend far too much time looking at pictures of shiny trailers.

Tell us a little about this book?

Dragon & Flame is about Jin (a dragon shifter and a crime boss) and Rory, the fire mage who tames him. Of course, the start of their relationship is a ruse to get at Rory’s ex-boyfriend, but what better way to fall in love?

What was your favorite part to write in this book?

Oh, there’s this moment when Jin is attacked (spoilers?!?!) and Rory comes and helps him. They have a really fun conversation about the guy who attacked Jin, and it also reveals some interesting character dynamics between them. And the sex scenes, of course. Those are always fun.

You can only pick 3 words to describe your main characters, what would they be?

Jin – powerful, deliberate, noble

Rory – laidback, rebellious, stubborn

What 3 things would your main characters never leave the house without?

Jin – cell phone, suit, cash

Rory – leather jacket, jeans, Docs

Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why?

They both had moments of each, I think. Jin’s dealing with a lot of fallout from the previous book (Tiger’s Den) so he has some issues with trust. I wasn’t always sure how Jin would respond to a certain situation until I thought about it. Rory also had issues of his own, but his reactions were easier to gauge.

Since we’re cover hussies….what was your first impression of this cover?

Sexy! Abs. Tattoos! What’s not to love?

How many books are you shooting for in this series?

Until I run out of stories! I created Haven City as an open world series, so the amount of stories I can tell in it are up to my readers and my imagination.

What type of scene is your favorite to write? (Fight, love, making up..etc.)

Verbal fight scenes. Or at least, misunderstandings. I love when characters are butting heads.

How much emotion does it take from you to write?

That depends on the book! This book was fairly light-hearted (as light-hearted as a story about a crime boss falling in love can be, mind you!) so it didn’t take a toll on my emotions. Other books have been much harder.

What do you hope readers take away after reading one of your books?

First, I hope that have fun and fall in love with the characters. Second, I hope they think it was hot. Third, maybe take a nugget of social commentary with them.

Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?

Military gay romance. I love the idea of sexy military guys falling for each other (and in bed), but I’m terrified of getting the details of the military experience wrong.

What are you currently working on?

The third book in the Lost Wolves series. It’s called Omega’s Destiny and will be out December 29, 2014.

What’s the last line you wrote from your current WIP?

Even if Sasha knew it was true, he wished it weren’t. They wasted so much time already, and he had no idea how much they had left. Maybe eternity. Maybe not.

 

Okay…. personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there… Hahah…

What is on your night stand/dresser? Clock, lotion and lamp.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Read, play video games and travel.

What’s your guilty pleasure? Scandal. I really can’t get enough.

What’s your secret talent? Singing.

What’s the last thing you Googled? A map of Venice, Italy. I’m planning a trip!

Quickie time… Think fast….

Are you a quickie kind girl? Depends on the person and situation.

What’s ur fave drink – in a glass or on him? Glass. Coffee burns.

Spank or Flogger? Flogger.

Ties or Chains? Chains.

Leather or Lace? Lace.

Soft or Hard… Bed, where was your mind? 😉 Soft.

Control or Be Controlled? Controlled.

Hot Wax or Whip Cream? Hot wax.

Top or Bottom? Bottom.

Sexiest feature on a man? Strong nose.

Boxers, Briefs or Commando? Commando.

Cowboy or businessman? Cowboy.

Tattoos or piercings? Both!

Night owl or early bird? Early bird.

Twitter or Facebook? Facebook.

Pinterest or Instagram? Pinterest.

ebooks or paperbacks?  Ebooks.

Is there anything else you like to add?

Thanks for having me! It was fun. ^_^

excerptWhen they left the restaurant, Jin took him downtown to go shopping.

Rory stopped outside the store and raised his eyebrows at the name. “Armani? Isn’t that last season or some shit?”

Jin chuckled and stepped inside. “The label is all certain people care about. The tux should work for your sister’s wedding as well.”

Rory forced himself not to glower and followed.

His patience came to an end when no less than three sales people walked up and started asking stupid questions. Jin answered, and Rory wondered if these three women spent all their income on designer clothes. What a ridiculous waste of money. They pulled out three tuxedos, which all looked the same to Rory, but the sales vultures insisted they were different in cut or style.

“Do I have to try all three of them on?” Rory asked and shoved his hands into his pockets. Too bad his bartender getup wouldn’t pass at a fancy gala.

“Yes. I want my money’s worth, and you’re the best model I can think of,” Jin said with a delectable smirk and headed toward the fitting rooms.

Heat flared in Rory’s chest, torn between annoyance and lust. Why did Jin always fall right on that line? This weird place between wanting and wanting to punch.

He stalked after the dragon.

“You’re coming in with me?” Rory asked as he walked into one of the palatial dressing rooms. It was the same size as his bedroom and had a damn couch, for fuck’s sake. Yeah, it wasn’t anything like the dressing rooms at the places he usually shopped.

Jin stepped inside after him. “I wouldn’t want you getting lonely in here all by yourself.”

Rory doubted that eventuality, but he didn’t kick Jin out either. “And here I didn’t put on my fancy underwear.”

Jin smirked.

A sales woman brought in the tuxedos and shut the door as she left.

A dare lit up Jin’s eyes as he settled on the couch.

What did he expect? That Rory wouldn’t actually strip? He slipped the leather jacket off his shoulders and set it aside. “You want to watch me take off my clothes?”

“Very much. You’re an attractive man. I can see what Richard loves about you, but I can’t see what you liked about him,” Jin said evenly.

Love. Ha! Dick never loved him. Rory knew that, and Jin used that word on purpose.

Rory yanked his shirt over his head and tossed it on his jacket. Then he stepped forward. “Like what you see?”

Jin’s eyes crinkled at the edges, and Rory wondered how old the dragon was. Older than Rory.

Jin’s dark eyes drank in Rory’s firm chest, the tattoos that wound over his arms and taut pectorals, and the little black rings that pierced his nipples. But Jin didn’t reach forward and touch him, like Rory assumed he would. Hell, from the look of hungry fascination on Jin’s face and the flick of Jin’s tongue over his lips, Rory expected a hell of a lot more.

“I said you were attractive,” Jin purred.

“So take off my pants,” Rory said and moved so close his legs straddled Jin’s thighs. Perfect position for a suck job, and he smirked at that thought. If the sex was on his terms, he sure as hell wouldn’t mind.

“Is this how I earn my kiss?” Jin asked and leaned forward.

“Maybe,” Rory said. How the hell did this go from a power play to flirting? Fuck. He didn’t know. The heat building in his balls told him not to worry about it.

“Hmm,” Jin hummed, and his rough hands wound down Rory’s chest. They flicked and pulled, ever so carefully, at the rings on Rory’s nipples.

Rory bit back a groan.

Jin smiled and roamed lower. His fingers caught on the top of Rory’s jeans, and he undid the top button. His dark eyes burned as he grabbed the zipper, and eased it down like this was all some great big act of seduction.

It worked.

Rory’s breath hitched in his throat as Jin’s fingers brushed Rory’s bulge. It twitched and stiffened, and Rory fought the urge to thrust his hips into those hands.

“You want me to keep going?” Jin asked.

The dare still burned in his eyes, but something else flickered alongside it. The same flame that burned inside Rory – the thing that urged him closer and closer to the edge between what was safe and what was possible.

He didn’t trust himself to speak, so Rory nodded instead.

Jin complied. He hooked his thumbs in the side of the jeans and inched them lower and lower. They slid over Rory’s black jockeys, down his legs and bunched there. He forgot about the boots. Well, since Jin was in the neighborhood.

“Those too,” Rory said, his voice gruff.

“Oh, you’re going to pay for this later,” Jin said with a dangerous smirk.

Rory returned it with one of his own. “Sure thing.”

Jin made quick work of the laces, and Rory stepped out of the boots and jeans with a minimal amount of hopping. The jockey’s hung so low on his hips the dark red curls popped out of the waistband, but he didn’t bother yanking them up.

It gave the dragon a good look at what Rory had in store for him.

“Do I have to dress you too or can you manage?” Jin asked, his voice rich with amusement. A spark shone in his eyes.

“I think I can manage,” Rory said and picked up the first tux.

He put on the pants, shirt and jacket without a problem, but the bowtie was another issue altogether. However, one of the sales women came in and righted it for him. Then there was a whole lot of ‘turn left’ and ‘turn right’ before he finally got to put on the other two.

Even looking at himself in the mirror, Rory couldn’t see the difference. He chose the first one out of spite, and Jin didn’t argue with that decision.

“I’ll box this up for you sir. And I’ll set out some suitable shoes. Size twelve?” she asked.

“Yeah,” Rory said and waited for her to shut the door before he looked at Jin again.

Jin’s eyes lingered on Rory’s bulge. “Do I get to take that off too?”

“Maybe after the gala,” Rory said and tossed the shirt at the dragon.

Jin caught it and stood up in one swift movement.

Right. Shifter. They were fast – faster than he was.

Rory barely registered that thought as Jin’s body met his, pressed him against the wall and took a long, slow sniff of his neck.

“You smell like sex,” Jin purred.

Rory’s heart jumped into his throat, and his cock responded to the sudden proximity. “Do I?”

“Mmm,” Jin said. His lips vibrated against Rory’s flushed skin. “You most certainly do. And I want my kiss. I think I’ve earned it.”

The cuff on Rory’s wrist felt heavier than normal, thick and tight. If he said ‘no,’ maybe Jin would have to stop. He’d need to back off until the situation was all on Rory’s terms. But Rory couldn’t find the words. They bunched up in his throat and came out as a groan.

Jin sucked at Rory’s skin and fire rose across his flesh with it.

“Earned it? Not quite,” Rory whispered. “Get me off, and I’ll consider it.”

Jin’s fingers dug into his shoulders, and he smiled against Rory’s flesh. “You’re going to pay for that too.”

Rory didn’t see how that could be a bad thing.
