LYHBL ebook Cover.jpgBlurb

This holiday season, celebrate with a trio of festive gay romances by debut author J. R. Lawrie.

This anthology features three stories sure to warm the heart and captivate the senses. Full of romance, humor, sweetness, and the perfect amount of heat, this collection is perfect for an evening by the fire. 

For Services Rendered

Dr David Christmas has heard every joke in the book when it comes to his name. Weary of the festive season and from his long shifts in the emergency room, David is also tired of his lonely single life. His only hope for Christmas is a glimpse of the shy but gorgeous neighbour who lives above him.

Christmas-loving Julian has nurtured a crush on the grumpy man downstairs for years now. Still hurting from his ex-boyfriend’s cruelty, he hasn’t yet dared to say hello. When an injury on Christmas Eve puts Julian directly into David’s careful hands, a little healing might be on the way.

Kind Of A Big Deal & The Farringdon Club

Up-and-coming comedian Zack Wynn splits his time between the stage and the London pizza restaurant where he works, until life hands him one hell of a Christmas present. Richard Garston is the handsome and clever older man of Zack’s dreams, but what exactly is it that Richard does?

Soon, Zack learns the truth: Richard’s classified role in the British government makes him a much bigger deal than he claimed.

Is Zack ready for the politics and power of Richard’s world?

And is Richard’s world ready for him?

Excerpt

From “The King’s Return” by CD Reiss

The suite had two bedrooms, a living room, and windows overlooking Fifth Avenue. The curtains were wide open to the city.

I expected him to bring me to the bedroom; instead he indicated the couch.

“Sit.” I set my jaw and sat with my knees pressed together. He pushed the coffee table away with his foot and moved a chair to face me. “Do you remember the rules?”

“Yes.” I stared right at him. He could have my body, but not my will. “I do what you tell me. You don’t touch me.”

“What do you call me?”

“Sir.”

“And when do you come?”

“When you say.” With no more than words, my clit throbbed against the fabric of my panties.

“Good.” He looked me up and down. His gaze had a physical presence. It pushed my clothes aside and left me naked. “I won’t touch you without consent. Until then, you’ll just do what I say. If you tell me no, I may find your request reasonable, but if I don’t, I’ll punish you. Got it?”

“Yes.”

“Stand up.”

I did.

“Pick your skirt up around your waist.”

I took a long blink. This was it. It was really happening. He leaned back and jerked his chin to me as if to say, Get on with it.

I half stood and pulled my skirt over my stockings and around my waist, exposing my upper thighs and underwear.

“Pull your underwear down to just above your knees.” Commanding and casual at the same time.

I expected this but still found myself shocked. The air crackled when it hit my skin, lighting the places between the fabric and my body as I pulled them down. I stood before him, eyes still unwavering on his so he’d look at my challenge, not my state of half-nudity.
