Didn’t she know what havoc she played with his body? His dick grew uncomfortable again and doubled in size. The wonder on her face only increased his lust. He needed a release. She reached up and slid her finger down his chest. A moan escaped his lips.

New Cover for Runaway Princess

New Cover for Runaway Princess!!!

Runaway Princess will be out this weekend.

Princess Regina Timna's vacation on Melopa, the pleasure planet, is cut short when she's taken captive by a mysterious masked man. Though her goal had been to experience the heights of pleasure before her father marries her off to some old fop, she now regrets her decision to leave her home planet. If only her captor were the Lieutenant from her father's guard—the man of her dreams!

Sexy palace guard Brack Greggor could kill Regina for running away to the sex planet. Lucky for her, he was in the right place at the right time to buy the beautiful princess from a sex slave trader. But he needs to teach Regina a lesson she'll never forget, so he dons a mask and proceeds to show her the danger of her hair-brained plan. Can he survive demonstrating the erotic pleasure Melopa has to offer—without losing his heart to the Runaway Princess?

Six Sentence Sunday - Princess Slave

Six Sentence Sunday
Princess Slave

“You want me to touch you, but you can’t admit it.” His thick voice tickled her ears. The smug smile on his face turned her stomach because he was right.

“You are wrong,” she whispered hoarsely.

“So you can admit you want my hands on your body.”

“Stop this.”

The Reason Behind the Big Switch - And the Woe of First Refusal

Recently I decided to ask for my rights back on three books from one publisher. You may have seen a few authors doing this and might wonder why. Here's my story.

In the summer of 2007 I received the contract for Princess Slave. I was over the moon. It was my first Sara York book ever accepted into publishing. I signed the contract, but I shouldn't have without asking for a few lines to be removed.

Princess Slave was released in the summer of 2008. One year for release. At the time I thought this was good. Yes, at one point in May of 2008 I had to ask if they were about done with edits, but that was the only time I had to ask on this book. I did keep all of the email correspondence with my editor which turned out to be a very wise move on my part.

Since Princess Slave was selling so well I decided to write and release Runaway Princess with them. Of course if you remember I signed a contract that I realized later I shouldn't have. Why? Because there was a little clause about Rights of First Refusal dealing with the character set and the setting. I had made a mistake.

I sent my editor, who I already had a publishing relationship with, the full of Runaway Princess in January 2009. I received the contract in August 2009. I should have pulled the book, but didn't want to be "THAT" author. After months of emailing, where I would spend two or three days, at the longest a week on edits and the editor would spend two or three months, in reality five months, with the edits for Runaway Princess. The book finally came out in August 2010. Yes, that's one and a half years from the time I submitted the second book in the series to my publisher for the book to come out.

I have to point out that both Princess Slave and Runaway Princess are novellas and this is epublishing folks. My other epublishers take about 6 months at the most to get a book out the door.

I sure as heck wasn't going to write another book in the Princess Series. Why would I? It would be ten, maybe fifteen years before the final book of seven came out. Now I'm publishing the series on Amazon and Smashwords for 0.99 US each. I decided to release the books on Amazon myself so I have control over each stage.

In early June I read a review from Lady Raven of Romance Novel Junkies on the Princess Series. Her review convinced me to ask for my rights back. So thank you Lady Raven.

What did I learn? Never sign a contract with rights of first refusal. You may think you need that contract or want that contract bad enough to sign anything, but don't. If you must go with a publisher ask them to remove that little clause because it might bite you in the end.


Blurb of Princess Slave
Princess Ava Timna is prisoner of the king of Zebulun, doomed to become his sex slave. Escape means certain death but staying only delays the inevitable, the loss of her virginity. To her people, her virginity is sacred, something to be treasured and given as a gift to her future husband. Giving herself to King Ean isn't an option. He's known for defiling women and casting them aside. She expects abuse and harshness at his hands, yet his gentle touch leaves her breathless and aching for more.

King Ean of Zubulun has a secret he’s not willing to share. He's not who others believe him to be and his secret identity changes everything. Keeping Ava prisoner weighs on his conscious. Keeping her means giving in to the lustful fire burning in his loins, knowing all the while he's lying to the one woman he wishes could be more than his princess slave.

Open Talk About Anal Sex


Sure, I write anal sex in my books like Surprise Sleepover and Matt and Tom Take a Lover If that bothers you, I'm sorry. In fiction stories the characters are always ready for anal or are prepared easily for their first anal experience, but in real life it might not go so smoothly. So let's be open about anal and what you should know before attempting to have anal sex.

The anus is not lubricated by natural body juices/excretions. The anus is supposed to stay closed most of the time, unless you are defecating. So two things that need to be overcome before you attempt anal. Your anus wants to stay closed and has been working its entire life to stay closed. Before you go anal, please do some anal play. There are small toys that can be used to help open up your anus. And second, you have to use lubricant.

If you are planning on receiving anal sex to please your lover, please stop and think about your safety before you just go at it. Keep lubrication on you. Adam and Eve has a personal lubricant sample pack so you can carry a small tube with you. Main thing is don't skimp on the lube. If you've never done anal before try some anal play.

Anal play??? What the heck is that?


Before you stick a big dick into your butt you might want to put something smaller there first. Fingers are nice. They are much smaller than a penis and if they are your own you have complete control. Just make sure the person with the fingers going in doesn't have long, sharp fingernails. You can use a condom or a latex glove if you feel it's needed. The only think you must do is use lubricant. The use of lubricant might seem over stressed, but you don't want to be sorry later.

If you don't like the idea of sticking a finger up someone's bum, then try a sex toy. There are a large variety of butt plugs that will help you to stretch your hole and give pleasure at the same time. Don't stick just anything up there. Yes, I've heard stories of people putting things like light bulbs and other household devices up their anus, but it's not recommended to put anything up your anus that is a common household item.

Since you are new to anal play, try a plug with a flared end. That way your toy won't get lost inside of you. The last thing you want to do is take a trip to the hospital trying to explain why you have a carrot stuck up your ass. Or anything else for that matter. The lube you are using will make things slippery, think before you stick it in your butt and make sure it won't slip out of your fingers.

Finally well talk about the issues that can arise when anal is done wrong. Prolapse Rectum is where the ligaments and muscles that hold the rectum in place weaken. If you rush anal sex you increase the risk of tearing the anus and the muscles in that area. Properly preparing your anus for anal sex can help you to avoid problems. And proper preparation always includes lube.

Anal fissures, or tearing of the skin around and inside the anus is when the skin is stretched too far. When anal fissures go untreated or are ripped open repeatedly you can develop sepsis. Sepsis is when a large amount of bacteria enters your blood stream and overwhelms your body to the point that you can't recover. This is where choosing your sexual partner wisely is important. A caring sexual partner will take you to get help if you are injured during sex.

Also a caring sexual partner won't force you to have anal sex if you don't want to. If your partner is pestering you to have anal and you are against it, your lover is probably not the lover you want in the end.

Don't do anal drunk. If you've never done anal before, think before you drink. You need to feel the pain and you want to feel the pleasure. If you are drunk you can't feel when to say stop. If your partner, the one giving anal, is drunk then they aren't going to have the coordination to go gentle once they get going.

For your first few anal experiences you want to relax and take it slow. Stop if the pain is too much. Use loads of lubricant and a condom. Talk with your partner and tell them what you expect and how far you will go. If your partner doesn't seem to be sensitive to your needs then ditch them and find someone else who can make anal a wonderful experience instead of a painful matter.

Today Is Release Day

Yes, today is the release of my first M/M erotic romance. I love this book. I had a blast writing Surprise Sleepover. Who would have thought that a straight girl could write gay romance and have so much fun. Why gay erotic romance? Love is love. Who has the right to say that two men can't find love together.

Purchase Surprised Sleepover here.


Snowed in turns super hot when James and Nick spend the night downtown.

Nick has spent the last year dreaming of James, but he's been too afraid to act on his desires. Then the ice and snow blew in, trapping him downtown. But he's not the only one prowling around the office. James is pleased to find Nick still at work and opens his house to Nick, offering him a place to sleep.

Nick is shocked when James grabs his hand to lead him across the icy street and more shocked when the man starts undressing him. The night may be cold outside, but the heat is rising in James' apartment.


Now here's a sweet little excerpt for you from their Meet Cute. Enjoy!!
Nick stared out of the fifteenth floor window of the Hayson building in downtown Dallas. His plane to CancĂșn was scheduled to leave in the morning, but based on the ice falling from the sky nothing would be taking off or landing at the airport. He’d called the airlines again and still got the same answer. He guessed he would keep calling until they cancelled, or it was so close to flight time he would try to make his way to the airport.

His floor had been empty for hours. Everyone with brains had left Jackson and Reeves Corp except him. At lunch someone had dumped fifteen contracts on his desk. Nick wanted to curse them and ignore the work, but leaving the contracts for when he returned wasn’t his style. No question about it, he would finish the work before his week of vacation. Of course, he hadn’t believed the snow would hit this early either. Now a drive to the airport looked like a trip to hell.

Only one more contract to review and print and he’d be done. Lucky for him the deal was easy, no special add-ons or exclusions. Time slowed as he drew closer to finishing. Only a few more minutes, then party time started. Hell, who was he kidding? The roads were crap. It would take a miracle to drive more than a few miles in this muck.

The eerie hush of the streets made him jumpy. Usually cars zoomed past, but not today. It’d been thirty minutes or more since he’d heard anything outside.

A loud noise broke the silence. He mistyped a few characters, which he corrected before getting up to look for whoever was sneaking around the building. The noise had been the door by the elevator, he was sure of it. That particular door made a loud popping sound anytime it opened. Had someone come back to work? Impossible, with the roads the way they were.

Nick stepped closer to his door and hesitated. The smart thing would be to lock the door and call someone, but he wasn’t a baby. And who would he call? Sure, he was afraid to leave the safety of his office, but no one who wasn’t supposed to be in the building could get in.

The pounding of his heart and the sweat on his brow made him laugh. He was being ridiculous. This wasn’t a slasher film. Some guy wasn’t going to jump out from behind a corner and stab him or shoot him.

Nick shook off his fear and walked out of his office and straight into another person. He screamed and flailed his arms. The rapid beat of his heart echoed in his ears.

“Oh God, I didn’t mean to run into you.” The man stepped back, grasping Nick’s upper arms in his hands.

For a moment Nick fought the stranger’s grip. Fear shot around his thoughts before he realised the man holding him was James from accounting.

“I didn’t know anyone was still here.” His heart still hammered in his chest and his breathing was erratic, but he wasn’t sure if it was from the fright or the fact that James was touching him.

“Are you okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine. How about you? Are you okay?”

“Yeah, I was just looking to see if anyone else was in the building. I’m James, by the way. I work down in accounting.” James dropped his hands from Nick’s arms and laughed. “I guess I don’t need to hold on to you anymore.”

Nick laughed too, not because James had laughed, but because he wanted James to touch him and so much more. But he was used to hiding those desires. So he laughed to cover what he really wanted, hoping the other man wouldn’t see the desire he felt. “I’m Nick.”

“I know who you are.”

Six Sentence Sunday - Surprise Sleepover - Releases Tomorrow!!


James' eyes grew dark just before he grabbed both of Nick's wrists and held them overhead. His body press into Nick's, hemming him up against the window that looked out over the city. The thrill of being pressed against James and against the plate glass window forty stories up in the air left Nick breathless.
"I want you, all of you." James slid his lips down the ridge of Nick's chin sending shivers all over Nick's body. He liked the way James took over.

Rights Back on Books

Last week I asked for my rights to be reverted on Princess Slave. Princess Slave was the first of the Princess series. After the publisher assured me my rights would be reverted on Princess Slave I asked if I could get the rights back on Runaway Princess. I love this book, the second book in the Princess Series. I'm happy to say that my publisher has returned the rights to Runaway Princess. I will be putting out both books soon on Amazon and Smashwords in the near future. I have five more Princess books set to write in the next few months and will be releasing them on Amazon too.

Here's the blurb for Princess Slave - I know you will enjoy this book when it is released later this month.

Princess Ava Timna is prisoner of the king of Zebulun, doomed to become his sex slave. Escape means certain death but staying only delays the inevitable—the loss of her virginity. To her people, her virginity is sacred, something to be treasured and given as a gift to her future husband. Wedding King Ean isn't an option as he's rough, known for defiling women and casting them aside. She expects abuse and harshness at his hands, yet his gentle touch leaves her breathless and aching for more. Could she be attracted to him?

King Ean of Zubulun has a secret—he’s actually Jaron, Ean's identical twin on a mission to restore order and honor to the planet he loves. Keeping Ava prisoner weighs on his conscious. Returning her to her people would blow his cover and result in their deaths. Keeping her means giving in to the lustful fire burning in his loins, knowing all the while he's lying to the one woman he wishes could be more than his princess slave.

Nick dropped his train of thought before his eyes dipped to James' crotch. One look down there and even a straight guy would know exactly what Nick wanted.
