Prism Book Alliance would like to thank Nicholas Kinsley for taking the time to talk with us today.


Title: Behind Locked Doors
Author: Nicholas Kinsley
Publisher: Forbidden Fiction
Cover Artist: unknown
Publication Date:02/17/2015


Edward Taylor is a man torn between his honourable façade and his forbidden carnal desires. Outwardly a proper Victorian family man, Edward secretly craves pain and lusts after men. Isaac Sinclair is a struggling writer forced by poverty to supplement his income with less savory pursuits, including discreetly inflicting “professional punishments” upon wealthy gentlemen. When Edward catches Isaac in an act of petty theft, the chance meeting seems to offer an ideal opportunity for both men. Neither man, however, is prepared for the escalation of social and personal risk occasioned by falling in love. (M/M)


A tug on the leash urged Edward to turn. Still blindfolded, Edward did as silently instructed, and turned with first one foot then the other to face the opposite direction. Another tug had him walking slowly forward, step by step, heel to toe, one in front of the other. He had no idea what might lay in his path or what surrounded him, but trusted Isaac to know where he was leading him.

He was stopped in front of the bed, halting when he felt the edge hit his knees. The tension on the leash lessened as Isaac let it fall from his grasp, and hung loosely by Edward’s left thigh. Edward was surprised to note that at some point he’d stopped shaking, only a few tremors here and there. Apart from the excitement that made him a bit giddy, he was almost entirely relaxed and at ease.

Isaac returned a final time and raised Edward’s arms, crossed them behind his back, and efficiently bound them together with what felt to Edward like a leather belt.

Edward had never felt more vulnerable. Naked, blind, bound, collared. In the dark theatre of his mind, he conjured up an image of how he must look. It only served to arouse him further.

One hand lightly touched Edward’s stomach, and another settled between his shoulder blades, bracketing him. They applied the slightest bit of pressure, tilting him forward.

“Bend over, face on the bed.”

Slowly, with Isaac’s guiding hands, Edward bent over the bed until his forehead and nose pressed into the mattress. He was acutely aware of his backside, how open and exposed he must have appeared, and without thinking twice, spread his feet further apart. In an ideal situation, this would be when Isaac slid a finger into him, oiled him up just enough, then eased his cock inside. Edward felt his hole clench around empty air at the thought of it, but knew the ideal outcome would never occur. It was, after all, one of Isaac’s few rules. No buggering.

What Edward felt instead was not at all an unsatisfactory substitute. He knew the instrument well, had become closely acquainted with it years ago at school. The firm, thin rod caressing the cheeks of his arse now, giving him an idea of what was to be used on him, was undoubtedly a cane.

Edward arched his spine, raising his backside eagerly. The angle was beginning to hurt his neck, but the pain faded away into insignificance.

The first lash was light, hardly anything to wince at. A test, Edward presumed. The second was harder, the third even more so, and the fourth, almost unbearably painful. Edward’s muscles tensed at the sting, but still, it wasn’t enough. He bit his lip and prepared for more.

Isaac didn’t disappoint. There was no longer any holding back. Edward heard the soft whistle as the cane sliced through the air, and took the slim second before it came into contact with his skin to ready himself. Paths of pain spread warmly along his buttocks and thighs before long, and Edward found himself moaning from the pleasure of it.

Yes, oh yes, oh finally.

  1. I like the idea of both the forbidden desire of wanting men and then also to submit, based in a time when social mores were very strict – makes me wonder at how the men of the time suffered mentally with having to subdue natural desires

  2. This definitely sounds intriguing. I’ve never had the nerve to approach historicals, if only because there are legions ready and waiting to pounce on the slightest missed detail *eyeroll* How taxing did you find the research for this?

    • Not too taxing thankfully, but definitely more so than usual. Sometimes it was even a bit interesting. I’m lucky that I have a friend who loves to read historical romances and gave me a few tips when I wasn’t sure if this or that was said, or if such and such would be acceptable. Since it’s not the longest novel in the world (only 58k words), I don’t think there’s too much of a chance that I missed a detail, but if I did I’m hoping the story itself makes up for it. I certainly think it does 🙂

  3. The Victorian era has always fascinated me ; I like the outrageous hypocrisy of it and the double moral standard, among other things. I’m very excited about this book. Thanks!

  4. I’m so glad you’re doing a giveaway! Awesome cover, and I know it’s going to be a great story, so that goes without saying. CAn’t waiT!
