This week I am giving you another taste from As Natural As Breathing, my gay spanking romance novel.
Last week I gave you a tiny taste of our two heroes first meeting. This snippet follows right after. For a back story, Logan meets Christian at a Christmas party where Logan is playing Santa. Logan is a people person and happy to meet just about anyone. Christian is the exact opposite. Logan’s “Naughty cowboys get spanked” comment brings this reaction.
A burst of something came from Christian. He wasn’t sure if it was laughter or anger. It was just a sound. “Naughty cowboys get spanked?” Christian spluttered. “Ah hell, don’t tell me. Santa watches porn.” He snickered loudly.
Blushing a little, Logan was glad that at least the other man hadn’t gotten angry.
To give you a little visual of Logan. He is over 6′ tall with dark hair, a deep russet skin tone, bright blue eyes and 8-pack abs. Who wants to sit on Santa’s lap?
UPDATE (7/3/2018) As Natural as Breathing was rewritten and republished by A Thia Thing in September 2017 – as such, the snippet could have changed.
For Christian Darringer, life isn't worth living. Just back from the Middle East—scarred and with permanent damage to one leg—he doesn't think anyone will want him for anything. He didn't plan on meeting someone he can’t stop thinking about. Pulled toward the startling younger man, he begins to question a lot of things—especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan.
Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends, and security. The only thing missing is the love of his life, a love just like his parents have. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help the sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants. His interest in spanking has become a fetish and when Christian admits he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.
Just as everything begins for them, Christian's past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. When it lands Christian in the hospital, he is forced to reevaluate their budding romance. Being with Logan might feel as natural as breathing, but if it costs Christian everything he cares about, is this new relationship worth it?
