Length: 40,450 words


Shy and scholarly, long-distance swimmer Ryan Zwick thinks he’s the only gay member of the college swim team. He keeps his head down in the showers, and his head in the books the rest of the time.

But when a sporty new transfer student joins the team, Ryan feels a surge of hope. Sexually inexperienced and looking for love, fellow swimmer Blake Gossens is everything Ryan wants in a boyfriend. But what is Blake’s game, exactly? And just how straight is he?

Blake seems to be more interested in Ryan’s best friend, Marissa, leaving Ryan to go back to secretly checking out his teammates in the pool. But Ryan keeps getting mysterious messages in his dating app from a stranger who seems to know a lot about him. Could this messenger be Blake? Or someone else?

When bad weather hits unexpectedly, Ryan is forced to confront his real feelings toward Blake, while opening up to the stranger by his side, eventually giving in to his wildest fantasies -- and his heart.

Discover the Club Raven Series by BA Tortuga, Julia Talbot & Kiernan Kelly

A Note from author Kiernan Kelly on the Club Raven Series....

First, thank you, for letting me come play in your sandbox! :)
I’m so excited about the release of a brand new, shared universe series, Club Raven, that I have with B.A. Tortuga and Julia Talbot. We’ve been working on this one for a while, and let me tell you it turned into quite a bumpy ride at the end.
It began last year, when BA had the idea of writing a kinky, magical men’s club set in the time of Edgar Allen Poe. When BA and Julia approached me about it (we’d had a great time writing our other shared universe, the Midnight Rodeo series), I think I said “yes” before the words were even out of their mouths. In honor of Mr. Poe, we called the series (and men’s club) “Club Raven.”
What could be better than mixing BDSM with magic, hot men, and the rawness of the late 1800’s? Nothing I could think of. It sounded like so much fun! We decided to pitch the idea during the Romantic Times convention last year in Las Vegas.
Which was our first -- and only -- mistake. We pitched it to All Romance Ebooks.
Now, in our defense, we had no idea at the time that ARE was already a sinking ship. We were under the impression they were doing fine, and the owner was a standup person who would honor her commitments.
Oh, how wrong we were!
Our books were set to release in early January 2017. A few days before their supposed release, we got the news that ARE was taking its toys and going home, leaving us high and dry. Argh!
So, what did we do? Did we weep into our Venti iced coffees? Did we wail and gnash our teeth and pull our hair?
Okay, in all honesty, yes, we did all those things. But then we pulled up our big girl panties and decided to publish them ourselves. We joined forces with our good friend, Sean Michael, and opened Evil Plot Bunny, LLC. Before we even knew it, we had a website ( and plans to publish and sell the books we originally  had up at ARE. Along with a couple of other authors we invited to come play, went live on January 17, 2017, the same day we released the Club Raven series.
Anyway, we made our own happy ending, and invite everyone to come read about our sexy, kinky, magical men in the Club Raven series!

Calling His Bluff by BA Tortuga

After his twin dies in battle, it’s Patrick Daniels’ duty to marry his brother’s fiancée. Too bad he can’t make himself do it, and in his distress, he manifests a psychic talent that’s stronger than the tornadoes in his native East Texas. Then a mysterious man from a place called Club Raven steps in and sweeps Patrick off to the booming East Coast city of Baltimore.
Club Raven veteran Remy Blanchard sees Patrick and knows, even though Patrick is very ill, that this is the challenge he’s been waiting for. He nurses Patrick back to health, and begins to teach Patrick to control his talent. His methods might be unconventional, and Patrick might be new to the kinds of sexual games Remy knows best, but the two of them find something in each other that might be just as magical as the gentleman’s club where they meet.

Happy Medium by Julia Talbot

Andrew is out to debunk Max as a medium, not make love to him...
Max Bellame is working his way through 1870s Baltimore as a medium, even if he knows nothing about spirits. He uses the power of his mind to move objects, convincing his clients he's the real thing.
Andrew Meechum works for Club Raven, a gentleman's club that doubles as a paranormal research facility. He sets out to debunk Max, only to be fascinated by the man. Can Andrew convince Max to take a chance on love, and to find his true calling as a medium, or will their personal demons force them apart?

Wishful Thinking by Kiernan Kelly

Tony Brazzio, co-owner of Club Raven, Baltimore's premiere men's club in 1875, has a pocketful of cash and a chip on his shoulder. He’s out to prove to his co-owners -- and himself -- that he’s not a fluke, that anyone can be successful give the opportunity, no matter how poor his beginnings.
Bull O’Brian and Dandy Gilroy are two hoodlums from the rough streets of New York’s Five Points. They’re pickpockets by trade, and both possess psychic talents that make them two of the best. When Tony offers to bring them to Baltimore and give them the chance at a life of riches in polite society, they jump at the chance, if only to steal the members of Club Raven blind.
The best of plans rarely work the way they’re intended, and things swiftly go from bad to worse for Dandy and Bull. There’s murder afoot and a detective on their trail, and not even copious amounts of hot, sweaty sex can ease their fear or guilt.
As for Tony, he’s faced with admitting his experiment is a failure, something he’s loathe to do. It’ll take a great deal of persuasion, a little luck, and a lot of lube to make sure his plans for Dandy and Bull become more than just wishful thinking.

Character Spotlight with Kelli A. Wilkins' Luther Dubois

Please give a warm welcome to Luther Dubois from Loving a Wild Stranger by Kelli A. Wilkins today as we sit down and see what makes him tick.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not saving your wife, Michelle?
I enjoy being outside as much as possible, so my favorite things are hiking in the woods, swimming in the lake, or admiring a spectacular sunrise. I’m part Ojibwa, and I have a great respect for nature and the environment.

What is it about Michelle that makes you crazy in a good way?
How many can I choose? (Laughs). Michelle has been making me crazy from the minute I met her and brought her to my cabin.

At first, it wasn’t always ‘crazy’ in the good way, but I’ve come to love her, quirks and all. She’s stubborn and opinionated and likes to do things her own way—until someone can explain ‘why’ she shouldn’t. Although at times that makes me crazy, I admire her. She’s a strong woman who has overcome a lot of obstacles, and yet she also has a very passionate, feminine side that drives me crazy in a very good, but naughty, way!

Do you sometimes want to strangle your writer? Thrash her to within an inch of her life for the stupid crap she makes you do?
On one hand, yes, absolutely! My life would be so much easier and less complicated if Kelli hadn’t dropped one bad thing after another on me. I’ve had troubles with the local townspeople, I’ve been in jail, gotten into fights, nearly lost Michelle twice, had conflicts with my family, and I was almost killed by a bear and a raging psycho. Thanks, Kelli!

Although Kelli always gets me out of these messes, it would be nice if things were easy once in a while. However, I have to thank her. If it weren’t for Kelli bringing Michelle and me together, my life would be very lonely.

Favorite food?
I’d say venison (or rabbit) with wild rice. Living in the wilderness doesn’t offer a lot of exotic food choices.

Tell me a little bit about your world. What are your greatest challenges in that world?
Well, as readers may know, I’m part Ojibwa and I live in a cabin in the Michigan Territory. Up until I met Michelle, my world was pretty much centered on tending to my daily chores, hunting, trapping, and staying alive. The lifestyle I lead isn’t easy, and my greatest challenges include what most modern, civilized folks take for granted: food, water, and shelter.

I lived alone for several years and learned to adapt to the harsh conditions. To me, it’s just how things are, but when Michelle came into my life, she had a hard time adjusting. She’s from a very wealthy family in New York and was used to a fancy house with lots of luxuries. When she came out west, she wasn’t prepared for life in the wilderness and had to learn a whole new way of living.

Describe yourself in four words.
Loyal, honest, passionate, and caring.

What do you do for a living?
I’m a trapper and trader, and I make my living selling pelts and skins. I also make furniture and do wood carvings. 

What do you fear the most?
One of my biggest fears is losing Michelle. I already nearly lost her twice and she’s very precious to me. I also sometimes fear that something could happen to me—and then I wonder, what would happen to Michelle? But now that I’ve reconnected with my family, I have their support, and I know that Michelle and I are going to be just fine for many years to come.

Thanks for letting me share my thoughts with readers. I hope they enjoy the book. The summary and a steamy excerpt are below.

And don’t forget, Kelli has written a lot of other romances in all genres (historical, contemporary, gay, and paranormal) at all heat levels. If her other stories are as exciting and as interesting as mine, I’d love to meet more of her characters. Her social media links are author bio are at the end of this post.  

Loving a Wild Stranger

A woman running from her past… straight into the arms of an untamed man

In a moment of desperation, Kathleen Stanton flees her pampered life in Kingston, New York and ends up stranded in a small town in the Michigan Territory. Out of money and forced to rely on her instincts, she impersonates a handsome stranger’s mail-order bride.

Committed to her deception, Kathleen calls herself Michelle and starts her new life with Luther in an isolated cabin in the wilderness. Luther can’t believe his luck when his beautiful bride arrives, but something doesn’t feel right about his new wife. Michelle has terrifying nightmares involving a man named Roger and is reluctant to talk about where she came from.

Luther’s friend, Redfeather visits and tries to convince Luther to send Michelle back east. Distrusting Michelle, he warns Luther that his bride is not what she seems. But Luther is in love with Michelle, and he is harboring a secret of his own—one that might force Michelle to reject him when she learns the truth.

Michelle falls in love with Luther and adapts to her new way of life. Together, they face off against brutal townspeople and overcome harsh living conditions. When they finally give in to their desires and agree to become a proper man and wife, a dark figure from Michelle’s past resurfaces and threatens to destroy everything.

A steamy excerpt:
Luther eased Michelle down and knelt over her. Her eyes were closed and a slight smile crossed her lips. He propped himself on his elbows and nuzzled the side of Michelle’s throat just below her ear. Her wet skin was cool from the lake, yet he felt her pulse hammering beneath his lips.
Michelle lay still as he trailed his hands down the front of her body. He took his time stroking the outline of her breasts, then worked his way to her hips. His head swam with desire as he glimpsed the dark triangle of hair through her chemise. God, he wanted her. He ached to touch her, yet was hesitant about pushing things too far, too fast.
He kissed Michelle and moaned as she kissed him back. Slowly, he slid his hand to the top of her chemise and began unfastening the tiny white buttons. Halfway through, he paused and waited to see if Michelle would protest. When she didn’t, he kept going.
He separated the material, freeing her pale breasts. She was beautiful. His mouth watered at the thought of sucking her. He broke the kiss and looked at Michelle. Her eyes were still closed, and she was breathing hard.
“Can I touch you?”
“Yes,” she whispered.
Luther bent his head over Michelle’s breasts. This would be heaven. After weeks of waiting and being so patient, he was finally getting his reward. He flicked his tongue across Michelle’s right nipple. She gasped and arched her back, offering herself to him. He drew her breast into his mouth and sucked it lightly. Michelle whimpered and writhed beneath him.
Encouraged by the sound of her throaty moans, he swirled his tongue around her nipple. He stayed with her, teasing her virgin flesh until his cock threatened to explode. It had been too long since he had made love, and his body needed release.
Ever so slowly, he slid his hands up her chemise, caressing her thighs as he sucked her breasts. Michelle tensed for a second as he lightly grazed her privates with his thumb. She kissed him deeper, and he eased his hand between her legs, discovering the warm softness he craved.
He touched her gently, taking his time exploring her soft folds while teasing her mouth with his tongue. She groaned and parted her legs wider. Obviously she was enjoying this, but how far would they go?
Michelle made a tiny mewling sound and arched her hips higher as he rubbed her. Before he knew it, she was aroused and more than ready…

Come join us in our expose' on Cassi from BEYOND THE THRESHOLD.  She is a fun-loving, full-bodied hottie, who has her own unique look and style.  We thought it would be fun to expose, with emphasis on the word expose some of her outfits over the next several weeks.


It was New Year's Day, night.  The Seacove was closed, Cassi had keys and she opened it for her and Beef and a few of his artist friends.
It was a painted body party.  The boyfriends privately painted their gals prior to arriving.

Cassi had organized everything.  Her decorations consisted of streamers with saucy, half-naked ladies from a pin-up girl era and Betty Boop boobies, glittered dazzled dildos table toppers sat adjacent to blow up lips.  An enormous cake in the shape of naked breasts with peach skin icing and rosy pink nipples fondant appliqués resided at a table that held penis-shaped metallic colored confetti of varying bright hues.  

When her guests entered, the gals ooohed and awwwed, exchanged hugs and quick chatters of exhilaration, girl huggles and cheek air kisses.
They all removed their coats, and squeals of compliments erupted.  The guys buddy-hugged appreciating the other's talents.

Cassie fanned her hand out, encouraging a  cat walk where pictures were taken.  The exquisitely painted women sashayed and reflected off the long night-darkened windows, making the bar seem full of replicating images.
There were more eyes than thought, witnessing these beauties flaunt their art, their bodies, their sexuality.  Hidden in the shadow was a dark figure, a huge man.  He had been waiting in shadows for Hannah.  Now, he found these doxies compelling.  He heard some of their dialog, saw every nuance of their forms, and physically stood interested.

Rags Fontana had dolled up his girl, Collette.  She was painted in a Las Vegas theme.  A fanned Royal Flush splayed over her pussy, while roulette wheels rounded her melon sized tits.  Dice rolled out of her belly button. 
Rags noted, "You can all observe that Collette is the perfect vice with matching dice."

The guys rated her with three kisses and she got to pick who gave them to her.  Surprisingly, Cassi was one asked.

Deiter Heater, aka the Eater, had spent hours transforming Katie Anne into a dreamscape.
"You will observe I went old-school with hip hugger jeans.  Everything goes with jeans." 

This enormously breasted female was painted in casual wear.  A blue halter top, nippliciously obvious.  A pair of hip hugger jean shortie-shorts.  Her plump labia was overtly protruding, which required up-close study by each of the guys.  "It's real," she assured, "Someone touch it."
Cassi used two fingers and fiddled with the lips in question, removed them, smelled, and offered them to Beef to sniff as if a delicate flower. 

Beef announced, "Real," winked, "sweet... a treat... to eat."  High-fived Eater, "Lucky dude!"
The girl said, "You can.  I'm offering."

Cassi replied, "Only if I can share."
Wingnut Luffknutt, a full-time machinists part-time artist, went biblical on his gal, Eva.    

The galfriend was painted in a Garden of Eden motif.  A apple covered one nipple, and the snake peered from her pussy.  Vegetation fancied the remainder of her skin.  She bantered, "I sin."
Wingnut reacted, "A lot!"

She was given three kisses. She asked for all three to be on her apple.

Cassi was as if wearing lingerie which took Beef five hours to fabricate.  He dawdled.  Why?  Cassi was naked!  
Her thigh-high stockings were orange and white feathers woven.  They were gartered to a hauntingly interesting flock of orange and white birds molting.  She wore no panties, though one feather appeared to be exiting her pussy.  Her under-bodice ended to reveal her remarkable tits.  The nipples were feather covered, one orange and one white.

Beef was proud.  The group studied Cassi and gave her look four kisses.  She took them all from each guy, in the pantry, giving them all seven seconds in heaven.
The group drank and talked and drank and talked dirty.

One suggested that they swap boyfriends.
Another suggested that they have one orgy pile.
Another offered up the possibility that the gals put on a sex show for their guys.

Talk could be fun, but the truth was they all fucked their own dates, in the same room, at the same time.
The voyeur in the shadow studied, deemed them as all being harlots, and felt they required the judgment by a greater force.  "I'd be that force's tool."  He knew none of this ended here, this night, and the throes of orgasmic squawks, but would end later, in a dark, dank, and more pious place.  There were those priestly men who needed to know of these harlots.

It didn-t shock Sheriff Adam McGreggor to discover the owner of the local seaside nightclub was once part of a sect. Hannah Holt-s entire appearance and attitude just didn-t fit her profession. Her reluctance to press charges against an assailant that left her battered and drugged, however, did shock Adam to his core. Even more jolting was his instantaneous attraction to this woman who fought his every advance.
But Hannah has a secret he cannot begin to fathom ... she is from a parallel world....
