Anyone who frequents Collars & Cuffs knows Dorian Forrester is built for pain, including Dorian himself. But everyone has it wrong. For six years, Dorian’s chased a feeling that remains tantalizingly out of his reach. Unteachable, Dorian can take anything and everything a Dom can throw at him. Still, it’s not enough. Dorian needs… something more. Something he won’t find at Collars & Cuffs.
Dorian’s search takes him out of the safe environment he’s known for years, out of his depth, and into a realm of deep, dark trouble.
Alan Marchant has been watching Dorian with interest for a while and knows there’s more to Dorian than his label of “pain slut” suggests. When Dorian disappears, Alan and his friend Leo set out to find him. But the disoriented young man discovered cowering in a hotel room is not the Dorian they know and love. That Dorian is shattered. It’s up to Alan to pick up the pieces and show Dorian there are better ways to fly.
They may be off on a new journey together, but their destination will rock them both to the core.

I wish it were me.
That thought had been bouncing around in Dorian’s head since he got the call from Master Leo to attend Ben and Scott’s wedding. He didn’t really know them, beyond seeing them at the club, but a call from Leo was something Dorian just couldn’t refuse.
Except it wasn’t Ben and Scott’s wedding, was it?
Leo Hart had got down on one knee and asked Alex Daniels to marry him, right then, right there, and suddenly that made it so much more personal. Dorian had watched them be joined in marriage, a smile pasted across his face like all the men around him. He listened to the applause, the whistles, and the shouts from the club members, saw their expressions of joy, and all the while he felt hollow inside. Oh, he wished the couple nothing but success. They were obviously meant for one another, but….
There it was again. Surrounded by genuine happiness, all eyes on the happy couple, and yet that one thought was still hammering in his brain.
I wish it were me.
He watched Alex at Leo’s side, laughing and smiling, drinking champagne and accepting all the congratulatory wishes of their guests. Leo hadn’t stopped smiling since Alex had said yes. His face glowed with love for his new husband. Dorian had sat through the whole wedding, transfixed by the looks that passed between the two men—and wishing he could feel what every other man in the room seemed to be experiencing.
Damn it, I need another drink.
Dorian turned away from the joyful scene and looked around for one of the waiters who were circulating, holding trays of champagne flutes filled with golden bubbles on high. Dorian stopped the nearest waiter and took a glass, placing his empty one on the tray. He took a long drink, enjoying the dryness of the champagne. He couldn’t help himself; he turned around to take another look at the happy couple.
All the best, Sir, he silently toasted Leo in his head.
“How many of those have you had?” Pietro’s voice broke through, making him jump slightly. Dorian could hear his friend’s amusement in every syllable. The slim sous-chef looked relaxed, a half-empty glass of champagne in his hand.
Dorian raised his glass and gave him a grim smile. “Not enough.” He drained half the glass.
“Whoa there, go easy. Are you feeling okay?” Pietro placed his hand on Dorian’s arm.
Dorian’s throat tightened to see the genuine concern reflected in Pietro’s voice and expression. Pietro’s gaze flicked over to Alex and Leo and then back to Dorian. The look of understanding in Pietro’s eyes made his gut wrench. Of all the subs at Collars & Cuffs, he was the one who knew Dorian best. And right then that was not a good thing.
“It’s not what you think,” Dorian blurted out, his stomach churning.
About the author and where to find her:
Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….
K.C. loves to hear from readers.
