cover-keiraandrews-fightthetideAdrift in a post-apocalyptic world, they only have each other. Is it enough?

A virus that turns the infected into zombie-like killers spreads through a burning world thrown into lawless chaos. Lovers Parker and Adam have escaped to the open sea when they hear a message over the airwaves from a place called Salvation Island—a supposed safe haven.

Orphaned as a child, werewolf Adam has always longed for a pack. He’s eager to investigate the island, but Parker doesn’t think for a nanosecond that the voice on the radio can be believed. He doesn’t trust anyone but Adam and is determined to keep it that way. They don’t need anyone else complicating their struggle to survive. Or do they?

Danger on the high seas can surface in a heartbeat, and if…

30 Days – Day 11

Let It All Go

Day 11

(I know, it’s two in one day but I’m procrastinating from my real life at the moment and need to feel like I have done something productive in the procrastination)

What are your views on the ethics of kink?

Consenting adults should be free to play.  But let’s make sure we are clear on each of those terms.  Consenting means there are zero negative consequences should either party say no at any time.  No threat of blackmail via photos sent to family, friends, of places of work.  No threat of punishment by a third party for not following through.  No money exchanges hands via a third party nor does a third party benefit financially (i.e. no one is being forced to do anything by a pimp/human trafficker).  One person is not in a professional position of power over the other (i.e. there are no fears of losing a…

Momentary Lapse Of Sanity


Check those criminal records of everyone you’re out there protesting for.  There are very few police that flat out murder people.  All this unrest is coming from people defending people that have done wrong, and some a whole lot of wrong.  Lead a criminal life and you’ll pay at some point in life.  It’s only a matter of time until your life comes tumbling down.  Really do your research on those police shootings.  Also, see how many other shootings there were by police that happened in the interim of these couple police shootings that were filmed and posted on social media.  I’m sure there are more police shootings that could have turned into a media circus.

America needs God, a clue, morals…  The things that matter.  Church, family, children, careers…

Simple things that really do matter.

At this point, no lives matter if you’re out defending these criminals and creating unrest…

#SatSpanks: I’ll take a switch to you

Amelia Smarts

top100_claimedbythemountainmanToday I’m back with Trapper Jack and naughty Nettie from Claimed by the Mountain Man. Jack is an uncompromising man who finds himself falling for Nettie, a woman running from her past and doing all she can to remain independent. The following excerpt is a good example of both his fierceness and compassion when it comes to the runaway woman. Enjoy!

“Are you going to lie to me again, Nettie?” He gave her another hard swat to punctuate his question.

“No, Trapper Jack.”

“Good.” He moved his hands to the place where her bottom and thighs met and gave her two sharp swats on each side. “I’m growing quite fond of you. So much so that if you do anything to put yourself in danger again, I’ll take a switch to you.”

She gasped at that piece of information. He gathered a fistful of her short hair in his hand…

Review: Kick at the Darkness, by Keira Andrews

Back Porch Reader


cover-keiraandrews-kickatthedarknessTo live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

College freshman Parker Osborne is having the worst day ever. He humiliated himself trying to pick up a cute guy, he hasn’t made any friends at school, and his stupidly hot jerk of a TA gave him a crappy grade on his paper. He’s going to drop Adam Hawkins’ film class and start fresh tomorrow after he’s had a good sulk.

But Parker’s about to find out what a bad day really looks like—if he can survive the night.

A virus is unleashed, transforming infected people into zombie-like killers. After these quick and deadly creepers swarm campus, Parker only escapes thanks to Adam swooping him onto the back of his trusty motorcycle. Now they’re on the run—and stuck with each other.

When they’re not bickering, they’re fighting off the infected in a bloody battle for survival…
