Excerpt from Dancing on the Edge:

Carey took a nice relaxed stance and slapped the paddle against his thigh. The sound would let Alistair know what was coming. Carey drew back his arm and delivered the first blow with measured force then watched with pleasure as Alistair’s pale skin flushed with colour. He gave Alistair a second or two to catch his breath then took up a steady rhythm with the paddle. Alistair’s sweet little whimpers turned to moans, but his cock was hard and slick with pre-cum. Carey knew that the moans were more about Alistair’s efforts not to come than they were about the pain. He laid the paddle on the bed and pressed his hand to the reddened skin. Warmth soaked into his palm as he gently stroked the curve of Alistair’s arse.

“You took that beautifully, love. You really want to come now, don’t you?”

Alistair nodded frantically.

“Well then, this will be an excellent lesson in control, won’t it? You are not to come until I say so.” Carey chuckled at his own cruelty. He could have given Alistair a cock ring, but that would have made restraint too easy for him. Carey loved to watch him squirm and cry with need. The single command to end his frustration was the biggest gift he could give. He grabbed a plastic bottle of lube, popped the cap then slicked a finger.

“Mmm. This smells good—spicy, I think, a hint of ginger maybe? Here, what do you think?” He held the tube beneath Alistair’s nose and watched his eyes widen as he sniffed. Carey knew full well that the lube contained ginger oil. It was already making his finger tingle and he couldn’t wait to see Alistair’s reaction as it coated his passage. Alistair clearly understood what was coming because he gripped the bedclothes like his life depended on it.

Carey fingered Alistair’s twitching hole, spreading the lube liberally. He squeezed more of the slippery gel onto his finger then dipped into tight heat, pushing firmly past Alistair’s initial resistance.

“How does that feel, love? Is it good?”

Alistair was panting hard, his face pressed into a pillow. Carey withdrew, coated two fingers then plunged back inside him, harder this time. He didn’t seek out Alistair’s prostate because he really didn’t want him to come until he had felt the full benefit of the lube. Carey had tried it on himself and knew that the initial slow warmth rapidly escalated to a tingling, heated crescendo. He scissored his fingers, stretching Alistair out, making sure he was well prepared.

Guessing that the time was right from the way Alistair’s muffled cries were issuing from behind his gag, Carey lined his cock up and thrust forwards in one, smooth motion. He felt the mild warmth of the ginger against his flesh almost immediately and it encouraged him to speed up his movements. It took every ounce of his iron will not to come . He held Alistair’s hips and concentrated on drawing out the pleasure of being encased in his lover’s constricting heat. As he came, with an orgasm that seemed to reverberate along the entire length of his spine, Carey reached beneath Alistair’s body and grasped his cock.


It was like magic—the instant the word had left Carey’s lips Alistair screamed into his gag and shot hard into Carey’s hand.


The Edge is a training company with a difference. Its weekend clients come for classes in bondage and domination, not team building and problem solving.
The management, staff and customers of The Edge do not lead boring lives. In fact they have a habit of getting themselves into all kinds of trouble. Put Dominant, possessive alpha males together with bratty, loveable submissives and sparks are bound to fly. These Tales from The Edge are their stories.

Reaching the Edge:

When you reach the edge, you can’t avoid taking a leap of faith.

Joe Dexter leads a complicated life. In one world he is a consultant criminal psychologist—in another he runs The Edge, a successful corporate training company. He’s also an active Dom in the London BDSM scene.

A social call to The Underground, a club owned by an old friend, turns into much more when Joe is introduced to a prospective sub. Falling hard for the boy’s tumbling blonde curls, huge blue eyes and desperate need for protection, Joe carefully coaxes him out of his shell. By the end of an intense weekend, unbreakable bonds have been forged and Joe is well on the way to becoming Olly’s Master.

Joe knows that there is trauma in Olly’s past, but it is not until his professional and private lives collide that Joe discovers the truth. He knows he shouldn’t have let Olly out of his sight but it’s too late—Olly’s old Master is back on the scene and he’s not in the mood to forgive and forget.

With Olly’s life on the line, Joe risks everything to save him. Has Joe found his perfect submissive only to lose him in a horrible twist of fate, or will love win the day? They’ve reached the edge and there’s no avoiding a leap of faith.

Living on the Edge:

Sometimes it takes willpower to resist temptation but courage to give in.

Aiden Keller is a brilliant and intriguing young man. When he’s convicted of hacking, his sentence takes him to The Edge, a high-end corporate training company with a mysterious sideline. There he is given into the custody of its owner, the enigmatic and demanding Heath Anders, and his business partner Joe Dexter.

From the moment Heath takes charge of Aiden he recognises the boy’s submissive nature, even though it is well hidden beneath a veneer of snarky attitude. But for twelve months, Aiden will be his responsibility and Heath cannot allow himself to get involved whilst the boy is obliged to obey him.

Aiden settles into his new life with the help of Olly, Joe’s pretty, submissive boyfriend, who is very perceptive when it comes to noticing the sparks of attraction flying between Aiden and Heath. Slowly and gently, he teaches Aiden that submission is not a weakness and to accept his desire to be dominated.

Unable to resist, Heath starts to test Aiden’s willingness to be obedient, and against all the odds, love (and lust) start to bloom. Aiden, however, is not quite what he seems and his past is about to endanger all their lives.

Dancing on the Edge:

Life is a dance. Whether you lead or follow, the passion of it should sweep you away.

Carey and Alistair have the kind of relationship that is the envy of their friends. Carey is an old-fashioned Dom who appreciates quiet obedience. Alistair is a sub who is comfortable in his skin and finds peace in his submission. Needless to say, their happiness is too good to last.

When Alistair’s powerful father chooses his reputation over his son, all hell is let loose. Forcibly committed to a clinic for reversion therapy, Alistair can only hope that his lover will save him.

Carey calls on his friends from The Edge and they band together not just to rescue Alistair but also to protect his future. They’ve all flirted with danger in the past—but friendship is worth any risk. As the tension mounts and the stakes get higher, new bonds are forged but will Carey and Alistair’s love survive?

A Double-Edged Sword:

How do you stay standing when the ground is torn from beneath your feet?

Becket and Christian are taking the first, tentative steps towards the committed D/s relationship they both crave when the world literally explodes around them. In a frightening reversal of roles, Becket has to deal with his own vulnerability and Christian must find the strength to take care of his Dom. With the help of their friends at The Edge, the two men come to realise that dominance and submission cannot be switched on and off.

Events that could have ended in tragedy provide the catalyst that affirms their trust in each other, but there are still questions to answer. Is the safe path always the right one to take? Is control simply a state of mind?

One thing’s for certain, life’s too short for compromise
