G is for Grape Nehi for today on June’s Spanking From A to Z Challenge

I write both het and gay erotica. There is a unique, and I find wonderful, dynamic in writing two men who fall in love. As Natural As Breathing is the first novel in my All They Ever Needed series. I adore Logan and Christian.

Christian finds himself in the unique position of being attracted to a man he had met at a Christmas party the night before. He decided to drop by their house to see if he was attracted to Logan or if he just had a strange night.

“Now,” she whispered conspiratorially, “I have a theory that my son, who has a very defined sweet tooth, has a sixth sense of when candy or cookies are brought out. If I am right, he should appear shortly.”
Chuckling, Christian had just taken a bite of a cookie when they heard footsteps on the stairs. Normally, he would be amused at the happenstance, but he was too nervous to be anything other than still.
“Hey, Mom, I was thinking of running out to…” As a hand with very long fingers reached for a cookie, the voice stopped as blue eyes met brown. “Christian?”
Trying to smile, Christian nodded. “Hi, Logan. So,” he said trying to bring some levity to the moment, “you lied. You aren’t actually Kris Kringle.”
Grinning slightly, with pink showing just barely over his russet skin, Logan ran his fingers through his hair. “It’s like a Superman thing,” he countered, his embarrassment washing away and a twinkle taking its place. “To the world I am Santa Claus or Kris Kringle. At home, I am simply Logan Davis Mannette.”
Snorting, Christian nodded. This he could handle, even if he had received the answer to his big question in the form of a hard-on barely covered by his button-down shirt. “Ah, I see. Well, you look really good for being a few centuries old, Logan. However do you do it?”
Holding up one finger, Logan disappeared into the kitchen and came back with a large glass and two bottles, one of Grape Nehi, one of Pepsi. “Shh,” he whispered. “This is a trade secret. What nobody knows is Grape Nehi and Pepsi, if done in the right combination, can keep you robust and young.”
Christian chuckled as Logan sat down and poured a shot of grape, then a shot of Pepsi. Back and forth he went until Christian finally asked “What happens if you put them in the wrong way?”
Pausing, Logan placed his bottles down and turned to Christian with a solemn expression on his face. “They are called elves, Christian.”

As Natural As Breathing


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?
