Gay Lovers on Safari Gay Travel 2


Tyler Robbins, the owner of Gay Travel Inc., decides to send four of his best—and single—travel agents to different continents to report on romantic travel venues. He sends Preston Bennetts to Kenya on a safari. Preston is excited by the idea until he discovers that homosexuality is illegal in Kenya. How is he supposed to complete his assignment? Fortunately he meets Austin and Ryan Holder. Austin has always wanted to visit Africa and Ryan has accompanied him because the old man is getting frail. But they’re both great company and Ryan agrees to help Preston.
Their constant search for romantic photo opportunities has Preston and Ryan thinking lustful thoughts about each other. That absolutely can’t happen in Kenya though. Any sign of gay activity could have them sent to jail.
Will taking pictures of the Big Five game animals satisfy Tyler and prevent Preston and Ryan from touching each other?

STORY EXCERPT

Preston wasn’t planning to listen to the guide’s spiel. He was more interested in trying to work out how to spend some time with Ryan, if he could even locate him. But then the guide said, “At Carnivore, as well as beef, lamb, pork, and chicken, they also serve crocodile, ostrich, zebra, and venison, as well as soups, salads, and vegetables in authentic sauces.”
Preston stopped listening to the guide’s patter. Crocodile? Ostrich? Zebra? Lamb and venison he could get back home, although they were damn expensive. But ostrich? Not so much. Maybe he would go there and perhaps he could encourage Ryan and his father to join him. He had an expense account after all and surely in a candle-lit restaurant it would be possible to get some kind of romantic photograph.
Back at the hotel he asked for a brochure about Carnivore and checked the dress code. There wasn’t one. That suited him just fine. Then he asked the clerk at the desk to ring Mr. Holder’s room for him.
“If you go to your room, sir, I’ll put through the call if Mr. Holder accepts it.”
“Thank you.” That sounded like Ryan was back from his day touring around anyway, or the clerk would have said, “When he returns,” not “if he accepts it.”
“Hey there, Preston, what’s the problem?” Austin asked.
For a moment, Preston was taken aback. He’d been expecting Ryan to answer, but of course Austin was Mr. Holder as well.
“Hi, Austin. The guide today was telling us about a restaurant called Carnivore. I hoped you and Ryan would be my guests there tonight.”
“Is it a dress-up kind of place? I didn’t bring a tux with me.”
Preston laughed. “Neither did I. According to the brochure I collected, there’s no dress code. I was just planning to put on a clean pair of Calvin Kleins.”
“Ah you bought some of those extra thin tropical weight jeans, too, did you? Ryan and I each bought a pair as well as some madras cotton shirts. Haven’t needed to wear them yet, though. The weather isn’t too hot and the nights are cool enough a man can get some sleep.”
Austin must have covered the telephone receiver as there was a muffled conversation going on. Ryan must have asked what was happening. Preston hadn’t had to buy any new clothes. Well, what with getting his immunizations he hadn’t had time anyway. But because of his career he had a wide-ranging choice of clothing with everything from lightweight breathable cotton to quilted snowsuits. Not that he liked going anywhere cold. The weather here suited him perfectly. He had his sunhat if he was walking around. However, he suspected the temperature out in the Serengeti at Masai Mara would be hotter.
Just then Austin was back. “Thank you for your kind offer. Ryan and I would enjoy that. I’ll book the taxi. What time do you want to meet us out front?”
“How about in an hour?”
“Sounds good. See you then.”
Preston took his time showering and shaving, and walked down the stairs. True to his promise, Austin sat in the foyer, his cane between his knees, with Ryan standing beside him. Austin waved to the clerk at the reception desk, who nodded. Preston guessed the clerk was going to summon a taxi. Sure enough, only a few minutes later one pulled up at the door.
Carnivore was an experience indeed. The restaurant was roofed, but there were no walls where the guests sat, so they looked out over the grass at other diners, and the sky gradually darkened as night fell. It was quite romantic, but nothing that could be expressed in a picture. Nevertheless, Preston determined to add a sentence to his daily blog to send to Tyler about that. He also snapped a few pictures for Twitter and Facebook, updating his status and saying where he was.
“My boss should be very pleased with me today. I’ve uploaded dozens of pictures of birds and animals from the national park.”
“He really expects you to do that all day long?” Ryan asked.
“Not all day long, but this vacation is for work, not just for fun. I only wish I could think of ways of making it seem romantic. It’s absolutely a bucket-list kind of trip, but romantic is a lot harder to explain.”
“What do you mean romantic?” asked Austin.
“The places the four of us have been sent to are to be marketed as the ultimate romantic destinations for gay men.”
“Ah, I see,” the old man replied thoughtfully.
Preston had a moment’s worry that maybe he shouldn’t have used the “g” word out aloud, but there was a lot of noise around them, and this was a tourist destination after all. It wasn’t like on the sidewalk where he was imposing on the lives of the local inhabitants. Here in this restaurant, apart from the staff, everyone was a tourist.
Soon the first selection of meats arrived. Leg of lamb, chicken gizzards, pork sausages, and chicken livers. Even the hot vegetables tasted different from normal in their special sauces, and all the conversation centered on the meal.
The meats were roasted over charcoal fires, and the waiters carried skewers around the restaurant, slipping chunks of meat onto guests’ plates if they wanted to taste each different dish.
Later zebra, crocodile, hartebeest, and ostrich were served, and the three of them tasted everything.
“What’s a hartebeest?” Austin asked the server.
“They’re grassland antelopes. They weigh up to two hundred kilograms and stand a meter high at the shoulder,” he replied.
Preston translated the sizes into American. “So twice as heavy as a man although not as tall.”
“And with two long horns,” added the server, smiling broadly.
“Remind me not to get too close to one,” muttered Ryan.
Preston laughed. “Unless he’s on your dinner plate.”
“There is that, indeed.”
They were laughing and about to begin eating this new meat when another server appeared with some more vegetables and described the sauces to them. While she was talking, Austin was looking at something behind him, but Preston thought it might be rude to turn around to see what had attracted the old man’s interest.
Fortunately once the server left, Austin leaned forward. “There’s a young couple behind you feeding each other food off their plates. If you swapped sides of the table with me, so behind you looks out over the lawn, and copied them, that would make a romantic picture.”
Preston just stared at Austin. “You’re right. It would.”
“That’s fine by me.” Ryan picked up his plate and glass and moved it to the empty space to the right of his father. Austin pushed his plate across the table and they all moved around. It was a small table, with one of them on each of the four sides, but for the purposes of the picture, Ryan and Preston sat together where Austin had been, with their backs to the garden. They rearranged the food platters so everything looked neat, placing a tiny tea candle between their plates, and then linked arms and held a forkful of meat at each other’s lips. Austin took several photographs which they all looked at and pronounced good before Ryan moved back to his side so they could each be sitting in one space again.

The first book in the Gay Travel series is out now!


Gay Lovers in Paris (MM)

Blurb: Sean Zagorc’s boss, Tyler Robbins the owner of Gay Travel Inc., sends him to Paris to write about gay romance in the City of Lovers. Tyler expects him to send multiple tweets every day about romantic scenery, romantic venues, romantic meals, romantic everything. How can Sean do that without a partner?
Elementary school teacher Antoine Dupre nursed both his elderly parents until they passed. Now he has a week’s vacation in Paris before selling the family home and finding a job. He’s on a very strict budget, and plans to spend most of his time in the Louvre looking at the exhibits.
Fate brings them together and Antoine is attracted to the American in the business suit. He agrees to help Sean take a few pictures, maybe spend a day together visiting somewhere suitable for Sean’s work like the Eiffel Tower. That should be romantic enough for Tyler, shouldn't it?

STORY EXCERPT

Sean had intended to go to bed after he’d unpacked his luggage. But common sense told him that to get over any jetlag he needed to adjust to Paris time as fast as possible. It was evening, but it wasn’t bedtime yet. So a walk might help him see some of the nightlights of Paris as well as tire him out. Although it’d felt like he’d done plenty of walking around three airports already today. But walking outside would be much more enjoyable and he’d spent more than eight hours sitting on the plane as well today so he ought to get some exercise.
He Googled the map of the eighth arrondissement on his cell phone and marked a walk that was a round trip of about three miles. That was plenty for this evening.
Sean wound his way through narrow, cobblestoned streets filled with old stone houses. Buildings here were limited to 121 feet in height, about five or maybe six stories, and the old-world flavor had been retained, giving it great atmosphere. Sean snapped off half a dozen pictures, trying to show the bright starry sky as well as the ancient stone buildings with their window boxes full of flowers. Other areas of the city permitted tall buildings, but Sean found he liked the feel of this area. It was unique and definitely fitted a romantic theme. That would please Tyler.
Sean reached the Champs-Élysées and began walking down it, enjoying the crowds out walking, the warm summer night, and the busy, yet happy atmosphere. When he reached the Obelisk of Luxor, he stopped to read about all the machinery and effort needed to move the huge piece of stone. He stepped back to take a picture and then moved sideways an inch at a time, wanting the lights still on the obelisk for his picture, but also some of the starry sky behind it for romantic effect.
He groaned when he saw his photo, after all his efforts, had come out blurry and deleted it. A diffident voice behind him asked, “You don’t have the selfie stick. Would you like me to take the picture with you in it?”
Sean whirled around. He’d been told the French preferred foreigners to use their language, yet here was someone speaking English with a strong French accent.
“Thanks for offering. I suppose I’d better buy a selfie stick tomorrow. But what I really need is a clear picture of the obelisk, with stars in the background.”
He also didn’t want to hand his cell phone to a stranger, no matter how polite. It had everything he needed for his work on it, as well as far too much personal data to risk someone hacking into it. So he shook his head and dropped his phone into the inside pocket of his suit jacket.
“Let me try,” the persistent man said, worrying Sean even more. As unobtrusively as possible he buttoned his jacket. Not only would someone need to reach inside his coat now, but even if he was moving it couldn’t flap open.
However, the man pulled out his own cell phone and waved Sean over to stand in front of the monument. It was so enormous it would be almost impossible to get a complete picture of it from any closer than this.
The man’s hair shone blond in the bright lights as he patiently moved this way and that and then held up a hand. Sean turned slightly to smile at him, still a little wary that someone would jump him and try to rob him, but no one was close to him. The man hurried across and showed him the picture.
“It’s perfect, thanks. Can you message it to me, please?”
“Of course.”
He gave his cell phone number and a moment later it dinged and there was the picture. “That’s perfect. Amazing.” Sean smiled his thanks to the stranger.
The man was grinning happily. Despite his brain telling him to remain wary, Sean held out his hand. “Sean.”
“Antoine.”
“Can I buy you a coffee? I saw a café just along here a little way.”
“Thank you, I’d like that.”

Born to Rule: Air is here at last!


“Air” Born to Rule book 4, by Berengaria Brown
None of the huge aliens from Mu Arae 7 have chosen Skye to be their slave. Not that she wants to be a slave, but she’s lonely now that all her friends have been taken. Then Gabriel comes along. For an alien, he’s kind to her even though she doesn’t always understand what he wants. Skye feels hopelessly inadequate, and so much less worthy than anyone else here. Why does he want to claim her?
Gabriel knows he wants Skye, but how can he convince her to trust and accept him when he’s capturing her?

ADULT EXCERPT

Gabriel tucked her down on his torso again, this time with her white-blonde hair in his hands and her head resting over his heart. He threaded his fingers through the strands of her hair. Like her body it was delicate, but strong.
“Tell me what it was like growing up on this ruined planet. What has your life been composed of up until now.”
She spoke slowly, thoughtfully, and he liked that she took the time to answer him properly instead of just parroting off some casual remark. He genuinely wanted to learn all about her. She was his bride and her pleasure was his priority for the rest of their lives. Certainly he was her master. He was the warrior and the one in control in their relationship, but without her power the Earth wouldn’t be redeemed, so she was important as well.
“My community are scavengers. We’re always moving on finding food to eat. The elders locate safe places for us to stay, especially in winter when it’s very cold, but the women are the ones who find most of the food—fruits and vegetables, tubers and fungi and edible grasses. It’s a good life. It was very rare that there wasn’t food for us to eat at night.”
“I know you only ate once a day. It’s no wonder you’re all far too thin. Now you can eat properly and your bodies will fill out more. Tell me about yourself. You personally.”
“There isn’t anything to tell. I’m just me. Terah, Flame, Raine, and I grew up together and have always been friends. We’re used to doing everything together. But I don’t know how that will help you. I promise to obey you though, sir, and be the best slave I can be for you.”
“You’re already perfect, my bride. Your body is addictive.”
Gabriel groaned. Despite his orgasm only a few minutes before, his cock was already hardening and stretching.
“Sit on my hips and let me look at you properly,” he ordered.
She straddled his hips and her cunt was damp on his skin. Good. He planned to make her much wetter and then fuck her. But first she was a playground he hadn’t yet explored.
Gabriel pushed her hair back over her shoulders, and then ran his hands down her sides. He could see and feel every rib, but now she was eating properly, her body would soon cover them over. Her hips jutted out as well, but the same thing applied to them. A few months of proper nutrition and she’d have curves instead of angles there. Fortunately she had perfect breasts. Small ones, but just right for him to suck into his mouth.
He flicked his tongue over a nipple, watching her shiver at his touch. He sucked her breast into his mouth, tugging on the nipple and then swapped to her other breast. Now her cunt was even wetter on his skin. She liked him touching her.
He pushed her breasts together and licked and sucked from one nipple to the other and back again, and then he lifted his head and drove his tongue into her mouth, fucking every inch of the warm, wet, cavern until they were both sobbing for breath.
“It’s time for the second claiming, your cunt.”

Water! Born to Rule book 3


Born to Rule: Water” is out today.
This is the third book in my bestselling MF Sci-Fi series.

Water: Duncan is filled with rage. All through the long journey from Mu Arae 7 he’d envisioned his bride as an opulent, curvaceous, dark-skinned beauty, and he’d ended up with short, thin, light-skinned Raine. He wants to ignore her but the call between them is too strong. He claims her with lust and desperation, not love
Raine accepts that she’s Duncan's slave, but she’s also determined to explore the underground well. With or without his permission. With so many obstacles against them, can their lust develop into love?

Buy link: http://www.evernightpublishing.com/water-by-berengaria-brown/

WARNING! PG13 Excerpt:
Raine was almost running as she hurried up the dunes from the ocean back toward the spaceship, her arm held tightly by the ferocious angry alien. He was walking fast and his legs were so much longer than hers, that she didn’t dare slow down. He was so annoyed she thought very likely he’d pull her arm right out of its socket if she dragged behind him and slowed him down.
Raine didn’t understand why the man was so cross. She heard his words again in her mind, but they didn’t make any sense.
Raine, Raine, Raine. Raine knows fucking everything. Who are you, bitch? Why have you been sent to torment me? Your scent is driving me wild, making you me crave you, but I don’t even like you. I hate you.
Why did he hate her? She’d never done anything to him. She, Skye, Flame, and Terah had been captured by these aliens and had to do whatever they said. As slaves they had no power and no rights. Terah seemed happy as the slave of Andreas, the leader of the aliens. Flame made no complaints about her master either, although Raine was sure she had a bruise on her neck under her shirt. But both her friends had smiled at their new masters and seemed content. So why did this man who said she belonged to him hate her?
At least Andreas had told her new master not to hurt her. Although Raine felt sure the wordhurt could probably be interpreted several different ways. Still, he wouldn’t be able to kill her and she thought he might not even break her bones. On the other hand, dislocating her shoulder was going to happen right now if he didn’t slow down soon.
The alien who’d claimed her was named Duncan. All the aliens had purple eyes, and wore purple uniforms. They came from a planet called Mu Arae 7 which was a very long way from Earth. Apart from that, she knew nothing about them. However, since she was being taken to her captor’s private room, he was either going to beat her or fuck her. Or maybe both.
Raine was resigned to whatever he did. There was nothing she could do to prevent him now she was his property. She just wished she knew what had made him so cross so that she could be sure to calm him down and prevent him from being so angry in the future. The idea of being beaten every day for the rest of her life didn’t appeal to her at all. But if she could find out what she’d done wrong, then maybe she could avoid doing it from now on, and avoid a beating as well.
The aliens were very big men. Taller than any men she’d ever seen, and with enormously broad shoulders, and thickly muscled bodies. His arms were wider than her thighs, and her head barely came up to his shoulder. He could break her body like a stick for the fire with his bare hands if he wanted to.
He pulled a black thing from a hidden part of his uniform and the spaceship door opened. Almost without pausing, he hurried down a hallway and then up a narrow winding staircase. His shoulders touched the walls on both sides as he walked, and he moved so fast she almost fell trying to climb the stairs after him with one arm still stretched in front of her in his tight grip. She was going to have a huge bruise on that arm. He held her so tightly the skin under his fingers burned.
He stopped at a door and used the black thing again. Just like the door to the spaceship, this door disappeared inside the wall. He dragged her inside the room, pulling her close to him and now gripping both her shoulders so hard every one of his fingers dug deep into her skin. Raine did her best to stare back at him without displaying fear or pain, but inside, her stomach was roiling, every muscle was pulled tight so her body didn’t shake, and her teeth were clenched to stop them chattering together.
“You aren’t what I wanted. You aren’t what I expected. Why do you have to be my bride? Why?"

Born to Rule: Fire


OUT TODAY! Book 2 in the "born to Rule" series. "Fire"!

“Fire” by Berengaria Brown. M/F Sci-Fi PG13 EXCERPT

Blurb: After being captured by aliens, Flame is locked in a room unsure of her fate. When a huge, muscular man with purple eyes shows up, she is taken to his room to be his slave.
Chad was thrilled to find his bride so soon after arriving from Mu Arae 7, that he claimed her with haste. Now he has to work on showing her he doesn’t just own her, he also cares about her.

Excerpt:
Was that what would happen now? Was she going to be assessed and chosen as a slave?
Flame shook her red bangs out of her eyes. She had no choice. She’d been captured and if she was to be a slave she couldn’t change the facts. All she could do was hope her captor wasn’t horrible to her.
Terah had smiled and had no bruises on her face, so that was a hopeful sign.
Then the aliens served the food. A huge bowl of meat and vegetables all for herself. She didn’t have to share with anyone at all. And she was even given a spoon to eat it with. She had to struggle to remember how to hold a spoon. It’d been many years since she’d seen one. Her people moved from place to place scavenging food as they went. It was rare that they stayed in one of the old houses that might have things in it like bowls and spoons.
Finally she was given a cupful of hot black liquid that tasted as good as the food had, and quenched her thirst completely.
The alien beside Terah stood up and said, “My name is Andreas and I’m in charge of this mission from Mu Arae 7 to Earth. I captured Terah. She is my bride.”
So Terah belonged to him. She had been captured by him as Flame had guessed. Then the man pointed to her and Flame almost shook with fear before she realized she was supposed to say her name. “Flame,” she said in as firm a voice as she could manage.
One by one everyone said their name until a black-haired man’s turn. He said, “I’m Chad the chef here. When I’m permitted to touch Flame I will prove to you all she is my bride. I knew it as soon as I scented her body.”
Flame shut her eyes. He’d chosen her as his slave and there was nothing she could do but obey him.
The man in charge said, “You may take her to your room.” The black-haired man came over to her and held out his hand. Silently Flame stood up and took it. His hand was huge. He was enormous. Much taller than her and his body was a lot wider than hers.
Hearing that she was being taken to the man’s room made Flame think just one thing. He would fuck her. And if she wasn’t good enough maybe he’d beat her, or even kill her. How could she be good enough for him? She was a virgin and didn’t know how to pleasure a man. She lived in a community, so she wasn’t completely clueless, but she’d never touched a man’s cock and had no idea what would make him come.
Fear rolled through her body. Flame walked behind him up a narrow twisted staircase, breathing shallowly with the tension of what was about to happen to her. Sweat trickled down her spine and she had to grit her teeth so they wouldn’t click together with nervousness. He took a black thing from some hidden part of his clothing and a wall slid open. Inside was a small room with a bed, a table, and chair. It was clear that her guess had been accurate. She’d have to please him, even though she didn’t know how.

Born to Rule: Earth out today!


Blurb: Earth: Every twenty years a small group of warriors from Mu Arae 7 come to Earth to find their brides. Andreas captures Terah on the hill near where his spaceship lands and knows he has obtained his bride. He claims her immediately because he knows she’s the only woman for him.
Terah's running from trouble when she’s captured to be an alien’s slave. There’s nothing she can do to escape...but would she even want to?

PG13 Excerpt:
Terah took a deep breath in through her nose. “Danger. There’s danger here.”
She picked up her pack and screamed, “Run!” but it was too late. As the four of them scattered, a horde of enormous aliens burst over the hill and captured them. One of the giants grabbed her, sweeping her into his arms, and saying something in a language she didn’t know.
Terah kicked and screamed, struggling to get free from arms that were like ropes around her body. His hand, twice the size of hers, covered her mouth and nose.
“I found you and you are mine. By the laws of all Mu Arae I claim you.”
Terah went limp in his arms. She was a slave. The long walk, the days and days, hands and feet of them for her, for Skye, for Raine, and for Flame, were all wasted. Instead of escaping from the aliens they’d all been caught almost at the safe place. The aliens must have discovered it and waited here to trap them. Now she was this man’s slave forever.
The man called out something in the strange language, and then there was silence. He was holding her so tightly against his chest she couldn’t even say goodbye to her friends. Tears prickled behind her eyelids but she refused to cry.
Goodbye, Skye. Goodbye, Flame. Goodbye, Raine. I hope your aliens aren’t too horrible to work for.
The alien turned her in his arms and spoke slowly in English. “Do you understand that you belong to me now?”
“Yes.” Her voice was soft and defeated so she immediately squared her shoulders. She belonged to him and had to do whatever he told her. But inside he couldn’t change her thoughts and personhood. She would always be Terah in her heart.
“You are my bride. We belong together. You will stay with me and we will rebuild the land.”
Terah didn’t understand the word bride. But since she had to stay with him and work the land she guessed slave was close enough to the meaning. At least she knew how to scavenge food and which plants they could eat. He was so big she supposed it would take most of her time every day just to find enough food to feed him.
He put her down and began to undress. His purple clothing looked very strange to her, but then she’d never seen an alien before either. At least he had arms and legs just like hers, and his hair was blond. His eyes were different though. She’d never seen anyone with purple eyes before. When he was naked, he pulled her closer to his body and dragged her shirt off over her head. He pulled so hard she worried that it would tear.
“Let me do it.”
She stepped back and undressed, even taking her sandals off, and stood naked before him. She couldn’t decide whether he was just looking to see what he’d gotten, or if he was going to mark her in some way to show she belonged to him, or whether he wanted to have sex with her. As his slave there was nothing she could do to complain whatever he wanted to do with her. He’d told her twice she belonged to him and she accepted that. She’d known the aliens were coming looking for slaves. It was just bad luck that she and her friends had been caught.
“You are too thin. You need to eat more,” he said.
Yes, well, that was only going to happen if he permitted her to eat more, but it was a positive sign that he meant to feed her.
“Andreas.” He tapped his chest and looked at her.
Apparently they were exchanging names. “Terah.”
“Suck my cock.”

“Three For the Road”, is book 1 of the Sex Odyssey series.
Blurb “Sex Odyssey: Three For the Road”.
When three fuckbuddies go on a two-week road trip together, will it turn into a sex odyssey or will it be the death of any hope of a relationship or romance?
Jennifer Adams agrees to a vacation with Chris and Robert. When she sees she’s expected to live in a shipping container, instead of a conventional RV, the vacation is almost over before it has begun. Jenni is lured by great sex with two yummy men. But will that be enough?

Excerpt PG

“You’re shitting me, right?” Jennifer Adams stood with her hands on her hips and stared in horror at the huge truck, complete with shipping container on the back, parked out front of her tiny, third-floor, walk-up apartment.
“You two expect me, ME, to live in that thing for two weeks?” Jenni could hear her voice rising to a shriek, but made no attempt to control it. There was no way—absolutely no fucking way—she was getting inside a metal box. Not even a humongous metal box.
“But, sweetie, we put curtains at the window and everything. Just for you.” Christopher turned huge pleading brown eyes toward her, looking like a kicked puppy dog.
Jenni took a big breath and reined in her temper. She hadn’t meant to hurt his feelings but jeez louise, what kind of morons were they to expect her to— Wait a minute. “Window? What window?”
Chris’ face broke into a happy grin. “Come over here.” He grabbed her arm and hurried her around the back of the long vehicle.
The container looked different on the other side. Its long metal wall had a decent-sized window cut in it, with curtains as promised, and a person-sized door.
With the air of a conjuror about to do his best magic trick, Robert unclipped from behind the truck cab, a thingy that looked rather like a TV remote control, and pressed a button. There was a whirring noise and a metal shelf slid out from beneath the door and started to descend.
Jenni looked at the men. Chris was beaming at her, but Robert looked a little worried. She couldn’t resist smiling back at them. “That is kinda cool. But what about inside?
“Just wait and see. You’ll love it,” Chris said enthusiastically, almost bouncing up and down and still reminding her of an overgrown puppy dog.
“It’s really comfortable in there. You should like it.” Robert was still a little worried.
“She can’t help but love it. It’s one hundred percent excellent,” added Chris confidently.
Jenni wasn’t sure. But there was a door and a window and curtains. Plus a cool way to get up to it. So maybe…
The three rode up to the door on the platform, and, dramatically, Chris bowed and handed her a door key. She slid it into the lock, then turned the door handle.
Opposite the door, was a little kitchen/living area with a table bolted to the far wall, a bench seat on either side of it, a sink with cupboards under it, and a microwave oven on a shelf above it. There was also a small upright gas oven with cook top.
The end of the shipping container was a living area with some shelves and a sofa. A TV was on a swiveling arm bolted to the wall, so it could be turned to face the sofa or the table.
“That is a nice set-up,” she said. “It reminds me of a recreation vehicle.”
“That’s where the guy got the idea from,” said Robert. “But this only cost a fraction of what one of them costs, and it’s plenty big enough for three for a few weeks.”
“Come and see the bedroom,” urged Chris, pulling on her arm.
Jenni allowed herself to be led through the living area to the truck-cab end of the container.
The bed was huge and filled most of the width of the container with some cupboards built into the wall opposite it. Beyond it was a functional shower and toilet cubicle and more storage space.
“This is awesome. I’m sorry I was rude.” Jenny hugged both men. “I can see the stove runs on gas, and I guess you plug into an electrical outlet in a camp ground, but how do you make things work the rest of the time?”
“There are batteries that automatically charge as the truck drives along. That gives enough power to cook and run the lights for a couple of hours each evening,” explained Robert.
“Whose is it? However did you find it?”
“The father of one of the guys at work is a real handyman, and he built it as a retirement project. Took him a couple of years. He was just finishing the last few details and planning his first trip in it, when he went to bed one night and never woke up the next day,” said Robert.
“Yeah shocked the socks off Will, his dad passing like that. He and his sister haven’t decided whether to keep it, or sell it, yet, but they were happy for us to borrow it for two weeks. We bought the curtains, and the bed linen, and the TV, and if there are other things you need, we’ll get them too,” added Chris.
“We want this to be a special vacation. Our first one, the three of us together,” Robert said, pulling Jenni into his arms. Chris pressed up behind her, wrapping his arms around the other two, melding them into a unit.
Jenni shivered, her panties suddenly damping. God these guys were hot. And sweet and thoughtful, if a tad irritating at times. Chris, with his open, loving ways, and Robert the more serious one, the thinker.

On 6 October the first of my "Born to Rule" series releases at Evernight. "Earth" is Terah's story.


Born to Rule book 1: Earth.
Blurb:
Every twenty years a small group of warriors from Mu Arae 7 come to Earth to find their brides. Andreas captures Terah on the hill near where his spaceship lands and knows he has obtained his bride. He claims her immediately because he knows she’s the only woman for him.
Terah thought she was escaping from trouble and now she’s been captured to be an alien’s slave. There’s nothing she can do about it. Or is there?

PG13 Excerpt
Terah took a deep breath in through her nose. “Danger. There’s danger here.”
She picked up her pack and screamed, “Run!” but it was too late. As the four of them scattered, a horde of enormous aliens burst over the hill and captured them. One of the giants grabbed her, sweeping her into his arms, and saying something in a language she didn’t know.
Terah kicked and screamed, struggling to get free from arms that were like ropes around her body. His hand, twice the size of hers, covered her mouth and nose.
“I found you and you are mine. By the laws of all Mu Arae I claim you.”
Terah went limp in his arms. She was a slave. The long walk, the days and days, hands and feet of them for her, for Skye, for Raine, and for Flame, were all wasted. Instead of escaping from the aliens they’d all been caught almost at the safe place. The aliens must have discovered it and waited here to trap them. Now she was this man’s slave forever.
The man called out something in the strange language, and then there was silence. He was holding her so tightly against his chest she couldn’t even say goodbye to her friends. Tears prickled behind her eyelids but she refused to cry.
Goodbye, Skye. Goodbye, Flame. Goodbye, Raine. I hope your aliens aren’t too horrible to work for.
The alien turned her in his arms and spoke slowly in English. “Do you understand that you belong to me now?”
“Yes.” Her voice was soft and defeated so she immediately squared her shoulders. She belonged to him and had to do whatever he told her. But inside he couldn’t change her thoughts and personhood. She would always be Terah in her heart.
“You are my bride. We belong together. You will stay with me and we will rebuild the land.”
Terah didn’t understand the word bride. But since she had to stay with him and work the land she guessed slave was close enough to the meaning. At least she knew how to scavenge food and which plants they could eat. He was so big she supposed it would take most of her time every day just to find enough food to feed him.
He put her down and began to undress. His purple clothing looked very strange to her, but then she’d never seen an alien before either. At least he had arms and legs just like hers, and his hair was blond. His eyes were different though. She’d never seen anyone with purple eyes before. When he was naked, he pulled her closer to his body and dragged her shirt off over her head. He pulled so hard she worried that it would tear.
“Let me do it.”
She stepped back and undressed, even taking her sandals off, and stood naked before him. She couldn’t decide whether he was just looking to see what he’d gotten, or if he was going to mark her in some way to show she belonged to him, or whether he wanted to have sex with her. As his slave there was nothing she could do to complain whatever he wanted to do with her. He’d told her twice she belonged to him and she accepted that. She’d known the aliens were coming looking for slaves. It was just bad luck that she and her friends had been caught.
“You are too thin. You need to eat more,” he said.
Yes, well, that was only going to happen if he permitted her to eat more, but it was a positive sign that he meant to feed her.
“Andreas.” He tapped his chest and looked at her.
Apparently they were exchanging names. “Terah.”
“Suck my cock.”

On sale for 99 cents!!


An asthmatic unwilling to relax enough to enjoy life, two men hell-bent on putting their stamp on her, an embezzler who wants to keep what he has stolen, and the ghost of a murdered girl. Will an endless night of passion with Finn and Simeon be pure pleasure, or only make Tia’s life more complex and messy than it already is?
Tia agrees to a night of unbelievably hot sex with Finn and Simeon, and is beginning to think she may have a future with them. Especially when the ghost makes her realize that her asthma is not nearly as bad as it used to be.
But the two men are so protective they don’t want her to help the ghost. And Tia never breaks her promises. Will frequent acrobatic sex be a solution or just add to the complexity?

Chatting happily, they travelled up to the apartment on the seventeenth floor and served themselves food on the plates Simeon had laid out ready and waiting for them. Simeon had beer and soda set out, but Tia requested plain water.
For ten minutes conversation was sporadic as they enjoyed the excellent food, and then Tia sat back in her chair and rested her hands on her stomach.
“Oh my, I think I ate too much. But it was very good.”
The men’s eyes focused on her hands. Suddenly the atmosphere was very hot as lust burned in their eyes.
“Can I rub your tummy for you?” Finn’s voice was husky with desire.
“I want to help, too.” Simeon was out of his chair and approached her like a leopard on the prowl for its dinner.
Finn pulled her to her feet and turned her to face Simeon so he could unzip the back of the bronze dress.
Simeon ran his fingers through her hair and undid the clasp holding the twist on her head. He laid it on the table, then gently threaded his hands through the long golden strands, massaging her scalp and untangling the knots that had worked their way into her hair.
Tia shivered with lust. The looks on their faces, the heat in their eyes, the touch of their fingers on her, it was all combining to drive the tension in her belly higher

WAIT! I’m writing a book!


I’m sure you’ve read about writer’s block and how authors try to get around it before. But sometimes trouble comes unexpectedly.
As most readers will have worked out from my books, I love summer, the hot weather, the beach, and walking through national parks. For some years I’ve enjoyed swimming at a local, large Aquatic Center. One day as I was swimming up and down in my lane (the slow lane, sadly, not the fast lane, or even the medium lane), I started thinking that an Aquatic Center would be a mighty fine place to meet Mr. Right. After all, there are plenty of brawny, naked chests, quite a lot of young, good-looking, ultra-fit life guards, and lots of sweaty, delicious muscles in the gym. The only surprising part of my decision was that I hadn’t thought of doing it long ago.
So I started writing the “Wet and Willing” series right there and then (in my head) as I swam. I expected it to be a paranormal series, as I’d been writing a lot of paranormal stories at that time, but the characters stayed firmly fixed in the here and now, showing no unusual abilities, remaining stolidly contemporary. Hey, that’s okay. Half the time I just take dictation from demanding characters anyway.
But then the unthinkable happened. The management of the Aquatic Center announced it was closing so they could undertake a major upgrade, and all the members had to find somewhere else to exercise for the eighteen months construction would take.
WAIT!! Just wait a minute. You can’t close the Aquatic Center! I’m in the middle of writing a series of books!!! Eighteen months! The readers would kill me if I took eighteen months off in the middle of a book!
Fortunately for my peace of mind, we were given passes to another Aquatic Center, a little farther away, but just as big and exciting. So the series, “Wet and Willing” was written.
Each of these books is a complete story in itself, but previous characters return for cameo appearances in later books.
And I’m still there every week, slowly making my way up and down the slow lane, getting inspiration from hunky life guards, and fit exercising men.

The “Wet and Willing” series is MMF ménage and available from http://www.bookstrand.com/berengaria-brown

Book 1: "Woman in Hot Water": http://www.bookstrand.com/woman-in-hot-water

Unemployed and homeless, Kendra gets a job at the local Aquatic Center. Her new boss, Osborne, is very yummy, but he’s partnered to Jordan. When she’s offered a threesome with two such delicious men, how can she say no? And with so many opportunities to see their semi-naked bodies, being a good girl is not that easy either. Fun on the waterslide, a hot time in the sauna, slick, gleaming muscles in the gym...

When Jordan deduces that Kendra is sleeping in her car, the men ask her to stay in their guest room. She’s hesitant, but allows them to persuade her. Despite the best sex of her life, Kendra is determined to move into an apartment of her own as soon as possible, so she goes house-hunting. The men don’t like either of the places she chooses. She can’t risk losing her job but values her independence too.


Book 2: "Cold Woman, Hot Men". http://www.bookstrand.com/cold-woman-hot-men

Melusine Carmichael mistakes the plunge pool at the Aquatic Center for a regular pool and almost drowns with the sudden shock of the icy-cold water. While underwater she hears a voice calling her "Melly," a name she never uses. Yehudi and Arlington are nearby in the sauna and rescue her, using their personal body heat and the sauna to warm her up. They keep in contact with her via Facebook, and finally convince her to let them teach her to swim.

But Mel hears the voice again and worries that they’re stalking her, so she cuts contact with them. Yehudi and Arlington try everything to see her and she prevents them, so they meet her parents after their swimming class. They learn about the voice saying "Melly" and that someone is stalking her.

But who is it? And how can they get Mel to spend time with them again so they can convince her of their innocence?



Book 3: "Small Woman, Big trouble": http://www.bookstrand.com/small-woman-big-trouble

Deb Steele hikes through a Water Authority reservation. But houses are being built on one section of it, and she can’t get home. She phones Kai Cole, and he and Harry Anders come to get her. While she’s waiting for them, her cell phone battery dies and a young man turns up on an electric scooter. When he realizes she’s quite alone, he plans to sexually assault her. She escapes from him just as Kai and Harry arrive.

Kai worries about how he can protect Deborah if this man is following her, and Harry suggests they learn karate. Kai decides the only way their beginning threesome relationship can progress further is if they all move in together.

But, as Deb is leaving work late that evening, the attacker jumps her once again. Why is he after her? How can the men protect her? And will they ever have enough time to build their friendship into a genuine relationship?

Writing a multi-author series


A little while ago Amarinda Jones asked me to write a multi-book series with her called, “Sex Odyssey”. The books are all about the heroine’s journey, both internal and literal. I was thrilled to be asked, as she writes incredible characters. But I was terrified as well, that my books would not be good enough.
I wrote three stand-alone books, set around Resort City, and with interlinked characters.

Now I know some of you authors are experts at this. I know some series have big “bibles” with every detail plotted and planned, the world totally developed, so all the author needs to do, is write the story within the guidelines. I have heard of one science fiction multi-author series where the bible alone is over two hundred pages. That’s a book all by itself.

But the “Sex Odyssey” series is not like that. The series bible is a dozen emails with comments like, “My heroine is buxom, is wearing tailored black pants and a shirt, and has her hair in a neat updo. She bumps into your heroine in the doorway of the Sea Shanty Inn. What does your heroine look like and what is she wearing?”
Well, I knew what my heroine looked like, but she was in bed, naked, at that point so I had to stop and think. Hmm. What would she be wearing tomorrow? And why would she be going to the Sea Shanty Inn?

A little later, I realized for my plot to work, the beach needed to have sand dunes. So I emailed in a hurry, “The small beach near the trailer park has a row of sand dunes between the road and the water.”

By the time I wrote my third book, the town, Resort City, had taken shape and I had notes and diagrams of where scenes had already happened, and the trailer park, where all my books have several scenes, was a clear picture in my head.

Some of the characters are in both Amarinda’s books and mine, some of my characters are in all three books. One of the heroes of book three was a minor character in the two previous books, who simply demanded his story. I wasn’t sure how that would work. He is gay and my first two books are one woman/two man ménages. But the perfect man for him arrived in town, so book three ended up as an MM story.

And as for writing a multi-author series. Exciting, thrilling, scary. Would I do it again? Hell yes.

An Excerpt from "Fireworks at the Lake" by Berengaria Brown

Andrew had spent most of the afternoon trying not to stare at the blond Viking stretched out on a lawn chair with the ripples from the lake running up and over his toes. The blond had removed his T-shirt and placed his Stetson over his face, but not before Andrew had seen the intense blue of his eyes and the sharp ridge of his nose. Since then Andrew had spent his time appreciating the Viking’s muscled arms and shoulders, his ripped abs and the long, long line of his legs—right down to the toes currently buried under an inch of water. Long, narrow toes, a fitting ending to the long, lean legs that disappeared inside baggy, knee-length shorts.
Likely, his view of the Viking was going to be the most exciting part of his Fourth of July weekend this year. Still, life wasn’t too bad. In fact, it could have been a hell of a lot worse. A bunch of the people from the office had planned to spend the day at a cookout in a city park. Andrew didn’t mind working with them, but he wasn’t ready to spend his vacation days with them as well, which was why he’d decided to come here to the lake for the three-day Fourth of July weekend.
Originally he’d planned to stay on the shore until the nine o’clock “family” fireworks display, then head back into the small tourist town for a meal before the midnight lakeside fireworks. But now his plans were liable to change. If the Viking stayed here, he’d stay. If the Viking went off with friends, that would be the end of his happy thoughts of getting to know the man. The only problem was, he hadn’t quite worked out how to get to know the blond yet.
Part of Andrew wanted to just sit and wait. The Viking had been lying there for a couple of hours already, and unless he planned to get quite wet, he’d have to move his lawn chair soon, as the tide was coming in. Likely when he stood up, Andrew could catch his gaze and say hello. Or something. On the other hand, it seemed rude to keep staring—or pretending not to stare—and not speak. But then, perhaps it would be safer to do nothing at all and just wait and watch. So Andrew waited and watched and tried to make up his mind what to do. Part of the problem was that his relationship with Rory had damaged his self-confidence.
He’d loved Rory passionately, far more passionately than Rory had ever loved him. Andrew had wanted them to live together, to settle down, to be a real couple, but Rory had never agreed to that. Gradually Andrew had realized that they were drifting apart, no matter how hard he’d tried to keep them together. Finally he’d understood that although Rory had been the man for him, he couldn’t fulfill Rory. After that had come a time of intense pain and anguish. A time when he’d wondered if he’d ever be enough to make another man happy. But that was last year, and Andrew was ready to try again. But only with someone who at least thought he might be able to love Andrew back.
Andrew stared at the Viking. He knew nothing about this man except that the blond was delicious eye-candy. However, something strong and powerful drew him to the Viking. Could this be his chance at happiness? Or would it be just another Rory who couldn’t return his love?

Blogging about reading and writing PLUS 99 cent books


“Future Revealed” Only 99 cents for a short time only!

This is a complete romance in itself, the second of three books in the “Embrace the Future” series which began from a dream I had, and which won an award for Best Science Fiction/Distopian book when they were first published in 2012.

Ruby, Pagan, and Koby are lonely, missing the community they left and the friendship of the people from the valley. As they collect supplies for winter, they decide to get extra and visit the valley, taking them some food and maybe animals to help them.
But first they have to hide from a group of motorcyclists looking to raid settlements for food and women. The trio’s next stop is an abandoned farm, where they find some useful things, including some animals and a truck to transport them back to their warehouse home.
They stay in the warehouse during winter, but once the weather becomes warm again they finish planning their trip to the village, adding a high-sided utility trailer to their vehicles to transport fuel for the people.
Danger is everywhere in this lawless world with food so scarce. Will they even survive the journey?

Book Description:

One story, 25 authors, infinite possibilities...

Quad McDaniel’s life changed forever the night he was attacked by a wolf. Now, he turns furry every full moon. Avoiding red meat and anything that makes him aggressive is his prime goal in life. But when his convertible breaks down in some Podunk town, becoming the beast within is no longer a choice. It’s instinctive.

Gypsy Govanivinch just wants to live a quiet life in Trinity Valley, running his roadhouse tavern. He doesn’t need an overly aggressive shifter coming into his town and messing with his peaceful little world, no matter how gorgeous the man looked.

Life never asked Quad or Gypsy what they wanted. It simply gave them what they needed, whether they agreed or not. Fate brought them together but it’s up to Quad and Gypsy to stay alive long enough to appreciate what they’ve been given. And when others work to prevent that, fighting together might be the only chance they have of surviving.

Excerpt:

Quad McDaniel threw his cell phone into the passenger seat and banged his head repeatedly against the steering wheel of his black Mercedes SL600 Roadster convertible. He couldn’t believe that his brand new car had broken down. He had just bought the damn thing two days ago.
So much for the perfect car!
And now his cell phone wouldn’t get any reception. Could his day get any worse?
He climbed from his car, slamming the door closed hard behind him in frustration. Looking around, he couldn’t see much in the dark, except for some glowing lights off in the distance. Resigned to his fate, Quad locked the car door and began walking toward the light.
When he reached the parking lot, he gazed up at the tavern sign…GG’s Roadhouse. Well, damn, he was in redneck hell. The multitude of pickup trucks and motorcycles in the gravel parking lot should have told him this.
He heard loud music spill into the parking lot when a man dressed in tight jeans and a sleeveless flannel shirt walked outside. Quad knew his day wasn’t going to get any better when he watched the guy climb into his souped-up truck. He could only pray that there was a pay phone inside.
Like those exist anymore.
He walked into the two-story roadhouse, stopping briefly right inside the doorway to look around the interior. He was actually surprised at how nice the place seemed. The first floor of the large room seemed to be broken into different sections. To the right of him was a large wooden bar that ran almost the entire length of the east wall with several intimate tables near the far end.
Directly in front of him was a large wooden dance floor that went all the way to the far wall. The ceiling directly above the dance floor was two stories high with a wooden beamed ceiling and a large mirror that went from the first floor to the balcony on the second floor. To the front right corner of the dance floor was a DJ booth and karaoke setup. He could see several people dancing on the dance floor to the loud beat of the southern rock music playing.
Looking toward the second floor, he could see that it was in the shape of a square with the balcony overlooking the dance floor in the middle. There were also several tables and booths on the second floor, as well as pool tables. A few of those tables were being used by bikers and rednecks.
On each side of the dance floor on the back wall was a set of double doors leading out onto a wooden deck overlooking a clear blue lake. The second floor had double doors that he assumed led out to a balcony covering the deck.
Looking up the wide, wooden stairway to the left of the bar, he could see that directly above him must be the management offices, and below them, the restrooms. Just beyond the bathrooms, he could hear sounds coming from what he assumed was a working kitchen.
All in all, it was a pretty sweet setup. If this place were in his neighborhood, it would be an upper class restaurant. He could envision it with upscale clientele, waiters dressed in white shirts and ties, and a top class chef. It would make a lot of money. Too bad it was in the middle of nowhere, filled with rednecks and leather-clad bikers.
Quad strode toward the bar and took a seat at one of the vacant bar stools. He lifted his hand to signal the bartender and lost his train of thought. The sexiest man he'd ever laid eyes on stood at the other end of the bar.
He couldn’t have been more than five foot six and maybe a whopping one hundred and forty-five pounds. The stranger wasn’t a skinny bean poll like most of the twinks Quad knew. In fact, as far as he could tell, the bartender had lean muscle in all the right places. The man also had a seductive, wild beauty about him that called deeply to the primal alpha male in Quad.
Wisps of tendrils escaped the silken mass of long, braided snow-white hair and caressed the sides of his perfect high cheekbones. There was both a delicacy and a strength in his face. Pale green eyes were ringed by black lashes. His lips were full and rounded over even, white teeth, and smooth skin glowed with golden undertones.
Shapely thighs and a firm ass tapered into long straight legs. The man’s tight, faded blue jeans rode low on his hips. A ribbed, black tank top barely covered him from his collarbone down to just above his bellybutton. A thick, studded, black belt drew Quad’s attention to the man’s tight, flat muscular abdomen.
Quad’s tongue almost fell out of his mouth when he spotted the little piercing in the twink’s bellybutton, which was encircled with a sunburst type tattoo. Oh, man, would he love to nibble on that.
A Celtic tattoo encircled one of the man’s smooth, left arms. That made two tattoos that Quad could see. He wondered how many more the gorgeous little man had. He would give almost anything to go on a treasure hunt and find each and every one.
“What’ll it be, honey?” Mr. Sexy asked with a silky, southern accent. His voice alone could mesmerize Quad. It was sexy and smooth, like aged whiskey. He could listen to him talk all day long. Quad wondered briefly if the man would sound the same during sex.
“Hey, honey, you just going to stare at me all day, or you gonna order something?”
Quad just stared. He didn’t even blink when the little twink waved a hand in front of his face. He was too busy envisioning what he wanted to do to the man on any available flat surface.
“Honey, you okay?”
