Blurb: Twenty-one year-old Lane Moredock finally has a normal life. Six months after he was wrongly made a suspect in his parents’ Ponzi scheme, he’s settled down with his older boyfriend, Derek, and is working and attending school. But his happiness is threatened when his mother launches a Christmastime PR campaign to help appeal her prison sentence, and asks introverted Lane to be part of it.

Derek Fields has his hands full taking Santa photos, bird-sitting his sister’s foul-mouthed macaw, and helping Lane prepare for a television interview neither of them wants him to do. As he eases Lane through his anxiety, he worries that Lane sees him as a caretaker rather than a boyfriend, and that their age difference really does matter. He and Lane compensate for the stress in their lives by taking their D/s relationship to new levels–a relationship that Lane’s mother insists he should be ashamed of.

As Christmas draws nearer, the pressure builds. Pushy elves. Snarky subs. A bad fight. A parrot in peril. How the hell is Derek going to give Lane a perfect Christmas when the Moredock legacy threatens to pull them apart before the new year?

Mary Calmes Week!

With every day that goes by, no doubt dozens of authors publish their first book. Even when these authors become more ‘experienced’ and have a few titles under their belt, they might not always get the recognition that they deserve.

One of the things we’ve decided to do at TBG is ‘Author Week’ which is a main focus on one particular author for an entire week. Whether that author is a newbie, moderately published or been around the block for years, we want to feature one author a month.

Now, this author can be a favorite to one of us, a person with a lot of books, that ‘hidden gem’ that needs a little bit of pimping or just someone that we want to read.

This week, we are happy to announce that Mary Calmes is our featured author! And we’ve got loads of reviews to post, an interview, a recipe and even a giveaway!

We are doing a mix of old Mary and new Mary books, as well as, favorites and… well, more favorites. LOL.

So, stick around, sit back and enjoy the ride fun because we have a week stuffed full of Mary awesomeness just waiting to go live!
