My Struggle With Shifters

Deciding to add shifters to one's vampire tale wasn't as easy as I assumed it would be. The dilemma in one word... Twilight. One does not want to venture in and end up developing characters that share the same characteristics as such a well-known book.

Aside from my book being ripped to pieces on Goodreads, it's just not a smart practice.

Book II of my Drakkar Coven series Oleander, Son of Drakkar provided me with such a challenge.

For example, my vampires do not glitter in the daylight as Stephenie Meyers' did, and mine are not tidy diners, considering humans to be little more than livestock. So, going to high school amongst them... not going to happen. Unless they were famished and looking for a smorgasbord.

Then there are Twilight's werewolves. I love wolf-shifters and want them in my book, but what characteristics and abilities do I give them without stepping on any proverbial toes?

My initial tactic was to chicken out and introduce a raven while my subconscious ruminated over the wolf issue. Luckily for me, I loved the raven character I created. The intelligent, mischievous personality and habit of stealing shiny objects gives a writer plenty of fun things to work with.

But then I met Alexander, once the love of Oleander's life …and a werewolf. I couldn't deny my overwhelming urge to find out more about this majestic creature. He's a beautiful character. Caring and compassionate, but tortured by the circumstances that will forever keep him and Oleander apart.

I added a twin, his sister Alexis, and created a species of werewolf that roams the woods within fables and stories told by the traveling minstrels. The great white wolves of lore.

Silent, invisible—deadly.

Their snow-white coats blending into the territory they call home. Beyond the most northern vampirical coven. A Prince and Princess as stunning in human form as they are in wolfen. Alabaster skin, crystal blue eyes—exuding sex and seduction.

Silent, alluring—deadly.

These are my wolfen shifters. Like no other werewolf within their roaming grounds, or any surrounding them. They are unique, they are mythical—they are unstoppable.

The third book of the Drakkar Coven series is the tale of "Alexander, Prince of the North" where I shall endeavor to free him from the pain of his devastating heartache.

Rodeo Boys

Cowboy lust, hot—dirty, and unstoppable


Dirk's family cattle ranch seems wholesome enough. Unless you were to wander into the horse barn Dirk uses for his side business of breeding and training stock horses. Then you might find him bulldogging Garrett, the ranch's head stockman.

Wanting to explore their sexual appetite further, Dirk and Garrett have started cruising. Hitting the rodeo circuit. Partially because they love bronc riding and steer wrestling, and partly because the rodeo grounds and local country bars are prime hunting grounds for tracking down straight guys who are willing to walk the line with them—experiment.

How far are these wranglers prepared to go to fulfill their rough stock lust? Follow the exploits of Dirk and Garrett as they cruise for straight guys on the Rodeo circuit.

Leigh Jarrett's Gay Erotica persona, Gavin E. Black, is working on a new three-book series, Rodeo Boys, following the exploits of Dirk and Garrett as they cruise for straight guys on the Rodeo circuit.

"Garrett and I had known each other since high school, senior year. After that, we'd gone to college together. Shared a dorm room. It was somewhere in that time, not sure when, that we started fucking each other, regularly. Not boyfriend—boyfriend fucking.

Just a couple of buddies getting each other off.

I'm definitely not gay. Maybe bisexual—maybe something else entirely. All I know is my best friend knows how to suck cock better than any girlfriend I've ever had, and I get an insane rush every time his cock fills my ass and pounds it into submission.

Now in our late-twenties, we've started cruising. Hitting the rodeo circuit. Partially because we've both grown up bronc riding and steer wrestling, and partially because the rodeo grounds and local country bars are prime hunting grounds for tracking down straight guys who are willing to walk the line with us—experiment. Let us show them what it feels like to really cum.

Intense, convulsive, soul-shattering surges of relentless, mind-blowing cum.

—but that's just my experience.

—and Garrett's.

—and most everyone else we've lassoed into joining us."
