My latest book, Lord and Master 2: Taking Work Home, is now also available at Fictionwise — with a 15% discount in the first week. There’s an excerpt at Fictionwise, but you can also find more excerpts and free short stories from the series on my website.
It was just an office affair, with wonderful sex. Young scientist Mark Paulson liked older men, especially tall, dark, and very handsome men like his new boss. Self-made millionaire Steven Frost had no trouble finding sex, but what he needed was a friend who shared his interests; someone like the young assistant he’d just hired. What started as simply great sex between friends has become much, much more, and now they’re engaged.
Life’s never that simple, of course. Other people have an interest in Steven’s welfare and Steven’s money, and they’re not about to let the pretty little PA half his age take control of either. There’s a reason why Steven was still single at the age of forty-four, and some of his family are intent on ensuring that Mark finds out about it the hard way.
But Mark already knows — true love is about more than champagne and roses.

[This went up on my LiveJournal on Sunday. Nobody has reported anything broken, so I’m spreading it further afield now.]
This weekend’s project was updating the website for the forthcoming release of the new Lord and Master novel. If you find any broken links or other glitches, please let me know. New material added:
free novelette Old Age Creeping Over Me
details page for the new novel, Taking Work Home:
three excerpts from the novel, linked from the details page
series information page, with a timeline, some background information, and links to the CafePress shops for the cover art:
(I’ll probably add more information to this over time.)
And I created a CafePress shop for the new book’s cover art, which is probably mostly of interest to me, but if anyone else fancies teeshirts or prints of that pretty cover art, that’s where you’ll find it. I’ve also created a cover art calendar that uses the three pieces of cover art annecain has done for my books (L&M, L&M2 and Dolphin Dreams). It is very, very pretty and I am regretting that postage to the UK makes it impracticable to get myself one any time soon.
The new short story about the characters from Lord and Master is now available on my website. It’s set on Mark’s thirtieth birthday, about two years after their wedding, i.e. some time after both the original novel and the forthcoming sequel. This is a standalone and you don’t need to have read the novel first, though obviously you’ll get more out of it if you already know the characters. For those who wanted to see something from Steven’s POV, here’s your chance. Around 7100 words, contemporary m/m romance, one sex scene.
Comments on the story are welcome. Comments are also welcome on any broken code on the page, as I’m still getting to grips with CSS. :-)
