Brand New Flavor

When artisan ice cream maker Jay Brown first meets food writer Cameron Clay at a charity tasting event, they get along like strawberries and chocolate sauce. Jay’s unique flavors thrill more than Cameron’s jaded palate, but after a delicious encounter in Jay’s delivery truck, where extra-creamy frozen treats are not the only delights sampled, Cameron loses Jay’s contact info—and any hope of a real date.

Desperate, Cameron convinces his editor to host an artisanal ice cream contest in hopes of drawing out the elusive genius. But more complications threaten to intervene. Will Jay even enter the contest? Or will the chance of a happily ever after melt away?

Lighting the Way Home (co-authored with Shira Anthony)

World-class chef Joshua Golden is homesick for Paris before he even arrives in New York, but he’ll endure it—his parents need him to help run the family restaurant while his mother recovers from surgery. Running a place so far beneath his talents is bad enough, but bad turns to worse when Josh discovers his former best friend and lover, Micah Solomon, is living at his parents’ house with his ten-year-old son, Ethan.

For ten years, Josh has done his best to forget how Micah shattered his heart into tiny pieces. Now Micah’s back, fresh out of prison, and helping out at the restaurant. Micah may not be the kind of sous chef Josh is used to, but he is more helpful and supportive than any of the other employees. But Josh finds it hard to keep his distance when, time after time, Micah proves himself a better man than Josh thought. Reluctantly, Josh realizes there is more to Micah than his lousy life choices… but that doesn’t mean Josh is ready to forgive him.

Like all Delectable stories, Lighting the Way Home includes recipes used in the book.

 

An Intoxicating Crush

Simon Ford’s success is hard-won. He grew up in Napa and resents the rich people who have moved into the valley, changing the culture by opening boutique wineries and pricing the locals out of the market.

Austin Kelvin runs an award-winning winery his father started after making a fortune on Wall Street. He lives the posh lifestyle Simon resents but secretly longs to attain. However, Austin’s world isn’t as luxurious and privileged as it seems: he didn’t inherit his father’s business savvy, and his winery is going under.

When Simon’s boss sends him to covertly scope out Kelvin Cellars for a possible takeover bid, Simon sees it as a step toward attaining his financial dreams. Until he falls hard for Austin. The feeling is mutual, but when Austin learns the real reason for Simon’s initial interest, he suspects Simon’s seduction is merely a means to procure the winery at a bargain price. If there’s any hope of winning Austin’s heart, Simon will have to risk it all to prove Austin is more than just an intoxicating crush.

Like all Delectable stories, An Intoxicating Crush includes recipes used in the book.

 

Gingerbread Palace

A week before Christmas, Alex Bancroft’s bakery goes up in flames. When he runs back inside after a dog, firefighter Kevin Flint has to rescue Alex—and Quincy—from the smoldering building, endangering them and inflaming Kevin’s resentment.

Now Alex can’t create the elaborate gingerbread house he donates to a foster-kids charity each year. Fire Station 7 again comes to his rescue, offering their kitchen and their manpower.

Everyone but Kevin Flint, that is. A third-generation firefighter, he’s fearful of stepping too far out of the closet. So when his powerful physical attraction for Alex ends in a sizzling secret encounter in the firehouse, Kevin can’t push Alex far enough away, and Alex returns the cold shoulder.

After a change of heart, Kevin risks his life to prove he’s worthy of Alex’s affection, but without a Christmas miracle, their chances at sweet romance might go up in smoke.

Like all Delectable stories, Gingerbread Palace includes recipes used in the book.

Sands of Thyme

Burke Williams wasn’t planning on a vacation, but when his well-meaning sister lures him to the airport and hands him a plane ticket and a packed suitcase the day after he finishes a high-pressure programming project, he decides to hop on the plane and go.

Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine a place like Cockatoo, a clothing-optional gay beach resort. For a guy more at home with a hard drive than happy hour, he feels like a fish out of water on the Caribbean island.

Only one other guy at the place seems to be enjoying it less than Burke: a handsome guy more interested in looking through his binoculars at the woods surrounding the resort than at the array of available Speedo-clad men laid out in rows of beach chairs, a veritable Smorgasbord of willing partners.

Stafford Nelson didn’t come to Cocaktoo to find a temporary bedmate, but he thinks geeky Burke sweet and charming, and they hit it off immediately. But when Burke discovers what Staff is really after, it might shipwreck their blossoming connection.

Excerpt (NSFW) from Spaghetti Western #newrelease @emlynley

September 17, 2014

 Spaghetti Western by EM Lynley

 

Cordon-Blue trained pastry chef Riley Emerson arrives in Aspen, Colorado for a summer season at the best restaurant in town, only to discover his jerk of a boyfriend has dumped him, leaving his heart and his summer plans in tatters. Doubting himself and longing for a change of pace, he takes a low-paying position as chef at a guest ranch, the Rocking Z. The scenery is gorgeous, but he expects that nature up close and personal can’t hold a candle to his exciting Paris lifestyle.

 

When born-and-bred cattle rancher Colby Zane spots a newcomer letting himself be pawed at by a passel of horny cowboys at Aspen’s Club Rawhide, he doesn’t think twice before rushing in, throwing the guy over his shoulder, and rescuing him from the volatile situation. Sober, Riley Emerson turns out to be sweet and sexy, but not interested in more than a one-night stand with Colby. Initially disdainful of the guest ranch side of the business, Colby’s over the moon when Riley late arrives as the new cook on his family’s ranch.

 

But all’s not well at the Rocking Z. Unsurmountable financial problems force them to rely on a cash infusion from an outside investor, Fitz Wellington. Only Fitz is hot for Colby, and he won’t sign on the dotted line without some very personal incentives. The future of the ranch is at stake, and Colby’s just desperate enough to go along, but saving the Z might mean losing Riley.

Excerpt:

Let me set this scene up: Chef Riley and cowboy Colby have started a relationship on the ranch. Colby thinks Riley just wants to be friends with benefits, but Colby wants a real relationship. So Colby’s trying to avoid spending time with Riley. Only today Colby has to drive Riley and the chuck wagon out to a remote spot on the ranch.

 

chuckwagonTwenty minutes later they passed the spot where they’d spent the night on their first date. First and last. Riley bit his lip and pretended his heart wasn’t aching. He couldn’t forget how sweet Colby had been that night, riding behind him on Granite, holding him close, and how they’d started out fucking, but ended up much more intimate and tender.

 

The spot was still on the horizon behind them when the wagon hit a rut and the whole thing shifted sending Riley into Colby’s lap again. Worse, something inside shifted and crashed as the wagon righted itself.

 

“What the—?” Colby stopped the horses and hopped down. He hooked the reins on a prong. “You better get down here too.”

 

Riley carefully climbed down, but tumbled the last step and landed at Colby’s feet. Colby helped him up ungraciously.

 

“Something’s busted in there.” He unlatched the door and opened it cautiously. Nothing came flying out, but when Riley peered in he saw one cabinet had come undone and tubs of marinating meat had come free. An upper cabinet door had also popped open.

 

“I’ll take care of it.” Riley pushed Colby out of the way and climbed inside, bending so his head wouldn’t hit the low ceiling. Luckily none of the tubs had opened up or broken or there would be a tidal wave of marinade sloshing around on the floor. Colby climbed in behind Riley and together they stowed the tubs of meat, hands and arms and legs bumping as they worked to secure everything in the cramped quarters.

 

sexy cowboyRiley didn’t know about Colby, but every time their hands came into contact, the temperature in the little wagon spiked. He couldn’t breathe in the cramped, almost airless space. Colby was so close, not exactly smelling like he’d just showered, but arousing all the same. It was torture being so near him again and knowing the body snatchers had turned Colby into a bastard almost overnight.

 

There was one cabinet still open, and Riley stood up to reach it. He moved too quickly and overbalanced, flailing around for something to stop his fall and taking down a container of flour. It scattered like white rain, all over the counter, the floor, Riley, and Colby, making the smooth surface of the floor slippery. Riley went down again, knocking Colby on his back. He broke Riley’s fall perfectly, and now they were face-to-face, Riley spread out over Colby.

 

Colby stared up and Riley reached for anything to help him get up. He thought Colby might punch him.

 

He never expected for Colby to put a hand behind his head and pull him down for a deep, hungry kiss.

 

 

palominoColby wasn’t sure what came over him when he crushed Riley close and took that kiss he’d been fantasizing about practically since he’d seen Riley that afternoon, especially after he’d changed into shorts that showed off his shapely calves. Damn Riley and damn Marcus all to hell for breaking Colby’s two days of staying away. One smile from Riley, the way his pretty blue eyes widened when he saw Colby, and Colby was doomed. He wondered how long he could keep up the bastard routine because it hurt like hell to see fear in Riley’s eyes.

 

Colby almost lost it right then and there when Riley landed face down in his lap. It would have been so easy and so enjoyable to thread his fingers through Riley’s soft hair and let him unzip Colby and—

 

Now, Riley lay sprawled on top of Colby, their mouths still pressed together, pouring passion and loneliness into a kiss as mind-blowing as the first one they’d shared up on the ridge not five minutes back on this same trail.

 

“Colby,” Riley gasped the word as he sucked in air. “What…?”

 

“Later. Later.” The last thing Colby wanted was to stop and talk—or think. He wanted Riley bad. Not for himself, but to apologize. “Right now, let me make it up to you.” He rolled over so they were facing each other on their sides, still on the flour-covered floor of the old chuck wagon. He pushed Riley’s shirt up and kissed his smooth, flat abs. Any doubts about whether Riley was into this flew out the window when Riley shuddered and moaned.

 

“Mmm. Yeah.”

 

Colby unzipped Riley’s shorts and boxers, then slid them down so he could get some of Riley’s cock into his mouth. He liked the way Riley clutched at his hair and lay back, letting Colby do what he wanted. Using hands and mouth, Colby had Riley hard as a rock in no time. Colby’s cock was painfully stiff too, had been practically since they’d both come in to the wagon. Ignoring his own desire, he did everything he knew Riley liked, flicking his tongue across the slit, sucking his balls one at a time, and gripping the shaft of his cock tight while taking him in deep so he pressed against the back of Colby’s throat.

 

“Good, Colby. Slow down. Gonna come real soon.”

 

“Okay,” Colby said around Riley’s huge dick, then he started humming, the way he learned from a guy he’d met at Rawhide, and rubbing the spot just behind Riley’s balls.

 

It worked like magic and Riley made a sweet little whimper and shot his load down Colby’s throat, leaving him choking and nearly gagging. He had to concentrate to keep breathing and not embarrass himself.

 

“God, that was quick and dirty. Really dirty.” Riley wiped Colby’s face and his hand came away with a fine dusting of flour. “You look good enough to eat. Get your pants down.”

 

“We don’t have time. You have the dinner.”

 

“I wish I could just say forget the dinner and do something filthy to you. I missed you so much. What time is it?”

 

“Almost four thirty.”

 

Riley frowned. “I can take care of you fast.”

 

Colby shook his head. He didn’t want it to be like that. Riley deserved more. “Later. Tonight. Can I come by after the dinner’s over?” Colby helped Riley get his pants back up. “I owe you an apology and an explanation. A lot’s been happening and—”

 

“Yes. That’s fine. Come over later and tell me everything.” Riley kissed the top of Colby’s head, so forgiving Colby felt like even more of a cad. A quick blowjob was no way to make up for the kind of dick-headed behavior he’d been guilty of the past few days. It wasn’t Riley’s fault that Colby was a coward and would rather run from a wonderful guy than get his feelings hurt.

 

“Let’s clean up in here and get over to North Point.”

 

“Maybe it was North Paddock after all.”

 

Colby messed Riley’s hair up, sending clouds of flour floating around them. “You.”

 

“You sure you can’t stay for the dinner?”

 

Colby had forgotten he’d done everything to avoid the chuck wagon dinner and Riley. “Well—”

 

“Cause I have a nice piece of meat with your name on it.” Riley winked.

 

“How could I turn that down?”

 

“You better not or you’ll owe me more than a quickie in a chuck wagon.”

 

“I already do.”

 

“Damned right. And I’m going to make sure you pay up.”

 

Colby knew he had a dumb grin on his face. Why did Riley make him so happy one minute and so freaking scared the next?

A Pastry Chef’s Morning by EM Lynley #newrelease @emlynley

September 17, 2014

chef_PBP0468_290839141

Riley Emerson just finished the pastry course at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. He isn’t particularly keen on baking, or on the early hours. He just liked the idea of staying in Paris, cooking, without the responsibility that goes along with working at a top restaurant. In fact, he didn’t really need the pastry course to get a decent restaurant job, because he’d already done the main culinary program and he’d been working for a few years in Paris.

In fact, he used to work with Josh Golden at Le Petit Cerisier before Josh went back to New York (in Lighting the Way Home). And for those of you who remember Josh, he makes a cameo appearance in Spaghetti Western.

Riley did love dancing the night away the Paris clubs—sometimes with Josh—and coming to Colorado is a huge change for him. He thought he’d be working in  Aspen, which has its share of night life, rich and famous visitors and some of the best restaurants West of the Mississippi. But that didn’t work out as expected.

Now Riley’s working as the cook at a remote ranch where he can see the Rockies from his bedroom window. Not a bad view at all. It’s a better view when Colby Zane’s arms are wrapped around him. Colby’s got some nice scenery too, so Riley doesn’t mind getting up early before he has to start baking bread for the ravenous ranch hands and the guests.

***

th

I happen to love fresh pastries in the morning. I used to live a couple of blocks from one of the best bakeries in town and I’d reward myself for a brisk walk around the lake with  a brioche or something flaky and rich. I never thought much about the staff who get to the bakery at five every morning to make sure the goodies are fresh and delicious when they open the doors at seven.

Do you have a favorite breakfast treat?

A Cowboy’s Morning by EM Lynley #newrelease @emlynley

September 17, 2014

Happy Wednesday from EM Lynley. I’m taking over the DSP blog today! Stick around for fun, prizes and excerpts.

cowboy504

It’s release day for Spaghetti Western, which means our morning routine is a little bit different.

But, on a normal working day, Colby Zane at the Rocking Z Ranch would be up with the roosters—or maybe a little earlier if he stayed over with Riley Emerson, the new chef at the ranch. Colby likes to get in some morning exercise with Riley before they both have to start the day.

Usually, Colby slides into some worn jeans and pulls his boots on. He showers at night after a hard day in the saddle, so he’s ready to go first thing in the morning.

Then it’s coffee and a hearty breakfast. Once he gives his ranch hands their daily assignments, they’ll bring the horses in from the paddock, saddle them up, and start work. The Rocking Z has far more horses than cowboys because a working day tires the horses so much, they like to give them a day to rest in between.

Back in the old days of the cattle drives, the cowboys would head over to the chuckwagon to grab some fresh coffee and grub. Cookie—the chuckwagon cook—was up hours before the cowboys. He had to roast the coffee beans and grind them before making coffee, some sourdough biscuits and a hearty breakfast of eggs, potatoes and bacon. After the boys finish eating and start moving the cattle, Cookie cleans up, takes all the cowboys bedroll, extra tack, and the laundry, and makes his way to the spot they’ll stop for that night.

Who knew a chuckwagon cook’s hours could be longer than the cowboys’ day?

So, how does your morning compare?

Letting Lier and Finding Pax by Harper Moon

 

Commander Raze is on a mission to capture the exiled Prince Lier. Tension between Raze and Lier blur the line between past and present.

For refusing the crown and renouncing his title, Prince Lier was eternally banished from the planet of Arden. After finding asylum in a Deep Space colony, he took a position in a bordello as the Master of Ceremonies. During Lier’s exile, Emperor Sardius I conquered Arden and slaughtered Lier’s people. From the destruction arose a new species dependent on blood. Seizing the opportunity, Sardius praises vampirism and blueprints mass blood manufacturing with Lier’s blood as the key. Lier is not only the last of his kind, but his blood is strangely addictive.

 

On a mission to capture Lier, Commander Raze, son of Sardius, can’t help but try it for himself. When he does, he experiences strange flashbacks of himself with Lier. Tense relations between captor and captive blur the line between past and present.

 

During the perilous journey to Arden, forces opposed to Sardius attempt to rescue their lost prince. Raze’s mission changes from retrieval to survival. Soon it becomes clear that, although neither man recognizes what the other has become, this meeting is not their first. And by no means will it be their last.

Out of the Gate by EM Lynley

 

Wes is an actor on the verge of success, but keeps his orientation secret. When he meets Evan, he must choose between career and love.

British actor Wesley Tremayne thinks he’s close to hitting the big time—a film career—with his role as a hunky explorer on a popular American TV show. Success should be just around the corner, as long as he keeps his sexual orientation a secret. Wes’s best friend and beard, Julia Compton, forms the other half of a glamorous Hollywood couple that’s merely a façade.

 

Evan Taylor left his acting career behind five years ago without looking back. He’s always been more comfortable around horses than people—especially Hollywood types. His new life training racehorses is a dream come true, but increasing financial problems and an abusive boyfriend have him doubting himself and his choices.

 

Then Wes and his friends buy a third-rate racehorse—partially for publicity—and send him to Evan’s stable. Wes’s friendship with Evan soon develops into an overpowering attraction he can’t act on. He’s never met a man like Evan, but if there’s any chance for a future together, Wes must choose between a career he loves and the man he adores.

Gingerbread Palace Release Day Author Q&A with @emlynley

December 11, 2013

GingerbreadPalace_200x300

 

I  probably should have posted this a lot sooner!

Since I need to take a break for an evening class for a few hours, here’s your chance to ask me any questions about me, my books at Dreamspinner or anything about writing.

A comment here will also get you an entry for my second giveaway. I’ll be back later to answer questions.

 

Since I also did not do a proper self-introduction before, here’s a bit about me and my writing.

I’m EM Lynley, and everyone calls me “Em,” which is easier to say than “E M,” right?

I write only m/m erotic romance, and have been with Dreamspinner since 2009. Most of my work is contemporary, and just about all of it has a mystery/suspense element, since that’s my favorite genre to read.

Italian Ice by EM Lynley Paperback

I am trying some new things and expect to be writing some paranormal/fantasy in the future!  I recently finished a BDSM mystery/suspense novel for Dreamspinner. I can tell you the research for that was fun!

I am a former economist, so many of my books have a financial element too. Now I’m living near San Francisco, and I’ve worked in London, Tokyo, and Washington, D.C.

Some of my guilty pleasures: 80′s music, the TV show White Collar, and just about anything that has coconut or watermelon in it.

What are some of your guilty pleasures? Got a question you want to ask about or any of my series or characters? If you’ve read any of my stories, I’d love to know what you thought of them.
