Winter Heat Authors A.J. Llewellyn and Serena Yates

Please give a warm welcome to Bryan Braun from Cat Vs. Dog by A.J. Llewellyn and Serena Yates today as we sit down and see what makes him tick.

Q: So tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

What do hairs have to do with it? I certainly take good care of myself, and have had no entanglements with my authors' hair. My lover Cory, now that's another matter. I love his hair. It's soft and I think it's because he's a cat shifter. I like burying my hands in it and love that we're so different. Stops me from getting bored, you know?

Q: What was it that drew you to your mate?

His purr. Yeah, Could listen to that for hours. And he's hot. When he starts preening in the bathroom? You know, he still very much behaves like a cat sometimes, even when he's in human form, but I love that. Don’t tell him though, he'd be mortified!

Q: A little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced your partner?

There was this elevator in the hotel we stayed at for Gay Ski Week when we first met. Have you ever stayed in a hotel full of gay men? Let me just tell you the elevator comes in more than useful. And then there was outdoor sex, in the snow. A little cold at first, but we heated the place up pretty quickly. Of course then there's the ride at Disneyland where we almost got arrested. Hell, all the places we seduce each other are wild—definitely by the time we get done!

Q: Boxers, briefs or Commando on a man?

Commando. Is there anything sexier?

Q: If your partner wants to seduce you, what's one sure fire trick he/she can play?

All he has to do is purr. I'm a simple guy, you know? Straightforward always works best with me.

Q: What is the one place on your partner's body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?

Cory is pretty sensual. I touch him in a certain way, growl a little, he gets hot. His neck and his ass are probably hotspots, but really, he isn’t picky.

Q: What was one of the most embarrassing thing your author did to you in Cat Vs. Dog?

Making me step into that damned wolf trap the scrimpers had set up and have me break my damned leg. Man, I thought I'd never live it down. Sure, my author said I'd been distracted thinking about Cory. As if that made it better! And then the author had Cory, the man I desperately wanted to impress, find me and rescue me? Man, I was glad I was in wolf form at the time or I'd have blushed in shame. Have you ever seen a werewolf blush? NOT a pretty sight.

Q: Anything else you would like to add?

Nope. I'm not very talkative, and your many questions have just about done me in.

Thank you Bryan for joining us on 'Meet the Character' day here at Dawn’s Reading Nook Blog. Please find Cat. Vs. Dog by A.J. Llewellyn and Serena Yates in the IRM Winter Heat Anthology available wherever fine kitty tales are sold:

C.A. Tallus has gone to Gay Ski Week in Aspen in search of snow, sex and…a dog? No. No. No.
C.A., or Cory to his friends, hates dogs. Hates them. Especially little ones, which are usually smarter than big dogs and know there’s something…unusual about Cory. And of course there is. He’s a cat shifter longing to get back into his natural state and run with the wind on top of the Aspen peaks.
When he meets Bryan Braun he senses something different about him, as well. Bryan’s no ordinary ski fanatic who’s been working too hard and in need of a break. Cory is certain Bryan is a werewolf. His natural enemy! Can a cat and a dog get along? Can they have fun in the snow? And beyond?
And what about the mysterious, big dumb dog accompanying one of the skiers for the raunchy week in the western slopes of the Rockies? What, or more to the point, who is Tank the dog and how did he and his human companion James become involved with deadly Scrimpers?


"Glad we're on the same page." He led the way to the bathroom, did his business and brushed his teeth in record time. Then he returned to the bedroom to undress and even made an effort to drop all his clothes in the same spot rather than distribute them across the room like he normally did. He didn’t want Cory to think he was a total dog, er, slob. He proudly looked at the neat pile and crawled under the covers.
Quiet minutes passed with no sign of Cory.
Where the hell is that cat? He'd always wondered how much werecats resembled their wild cousins in terms of everything from eating behavior to grooming habits. Guess I have my answer now. He yawned and burrowed deeper into the very soft and comfortable bed.
He was half-asleep by the time Cory emerged from the bathroom, already naked, his clothes neatly folded on his arm. Cory put them on one of the chairs, glanced at Bryan's pile on the floor but didn't say anything. Good kitty. Maybe they could learn to live together after all, and despite all the doomsayers who kept proclaiming that cats and dogs didn’t get along. He was willing to accept Cory's compulsive neatness, was willing to make some effort to be less of a slob himself. If their earlier romp in the sack had been any indication, it was well worth it. He'd never fucked anyone so hard and so long, had never come so hard and enjoyed himself so much.
"Come here." He lifted the covers, wanting Cory as close as possible.
Cory slid in, moving straight into his arms. He smelled heavenly and Bryan felt like apologizing for not taking a shower. Damn, he'd need to change that. But then Cory took a deep breath, buried his face in Bryan's neck and started a subvocal purring that had Bryan's tired cock make an attempt to respond.
"So sexy." Bryan kissed Cory's head. "Sorry I was too tired to take a shower. I’ll learn to be more like you."
"Why?" Cory pulled back and blinked at him.
"Because I want to make an effort. I want you to stay" He didn’t want to let Cory go, ever, and he'd do whatever it took.
"I appreciate it, but you don’t need to change. Well, not much." Cory grinned up at him. "I like your manly, musky smell. I love hat you've made the effort to put your clothes in a pile, but I want you to still be you, okay?" Cory yawned and stretched in Bryan's arms, rubbing him in all kinds of interesting places. "Now I need some sleep if you don’t mind, and maybe we can talk about the rest tomorrow."
"Anything." And for the first time in his life he really meant it.

Serena says:
I'm a night owl who starts writing when everyone else in my time zone is asleep. I've loved reading all my life and spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book. Although I always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first. Twenty-some years and a successful business career later I took some online writing classes and never looked back.
Living and working in seven countries has taught me that there's more than one way to get things done. It has instilled tremendous respect for the many different cultures, beliefs, attitudes and preferences that exist on our planet.
I like exploring those differences in my stories, most of which happen to be romances. My characters have a tendency to want to do their own thing, so I often have to
rein them back in. The one thing we all agree on is the desire for a happy ending.
I currently live in the United Kingdom, sharing my house with a vast collection of books. I like reading, travelling, spending time with my nieces and listening to classical music. I have a passion for science and learning new languages.
