I’m so thrilled to share the cover and blurb of my upcoming release BOUND FOR TROUBLE. The ultra-talented Paul Richmond did this cover and it conveys the theme of the book so well.

Release date is set for June 18, but you can pre-order from Dreamspinner Press. Buy Here.


Here’s more about BOUND FOR TROUBLE:

Daniel “Deke” Kane is a broken man, facing the end of his career in the FBI. He’s on desk duty after a botched drug raid left the suspects and two children dead. He’s got one chance to prove himself, or the only thing he’ll be investigating is the Help Wanted ads.

Ryan Griffiths has been on the run for ten years. Forced onto the streets when his father kicked him out, Ryan earns his living in other men’s beds. Finding his john dead in a hotel room drives him under the radar until a favorite clients gives him a chance at a safe, clean life. But Ryan’s relatively stable new world shatters when Deke Kane catches up with him.

When Deke’s tasked to take down a drug dealer with terrorist ties and a taste for the dark side of BDSM, his only chance to get close is the suspect’s interest in Ryan, and he convinces Ryan to become a confidential informant. In return, Deke offers Ryan immunity from his past. As Ryan falls under the drug lord’s domination, Deke finds himself falling for Ryan.

How about a spicy excerpt to whet your appetite for TROUBLE?

“Then there’s just one last thing before we can hire you, Ryan….”

Ryan nodded and leaned back in the booth as he took a swig of beer. He spotted Deke watching him out of the corner of his eye. Now Ryan felt self-conscious.

“Hey, Lu!” Luke called to his brother, and Luther came over to the booth. “You seen Ryan dance at the Kiwi?”

“Don’t think so.”

“Would you show Luther?” Luke grinned. “You know he needs to see.”

Ryan grinned as well, but it was harder than he expected. He saw the raw hunger in Luther’s gaze. This was the club’s owner. How would the clientele look at him? This was just the interview. It would only get worse. Could Ryan handle this?

“Sure thing.” He cocked his head and went over to the bar. He swung himself up with a move he’d learned in gymnastics back in high school, a million years ago.
Every eye in the place was on him. He focused on the music and not on the hungry looks and soon his hips were moving with the beat.

* * * *

Deke had been shocked when Ryan hoisted himself onto the bar three feet away and started dancing. Was he crazy? Was he trying to blow Deke’s cover?

But as soon as Ryan slithered out of his leather jacket, Deke realized this little performance was not for him; Ryan was showing off for the owners.

Ryan moved back and forth on the bar, swinging his hips and stopping to touch each man within reach. He tugged one guy’s ear, slipped a finger under another’s collar, and fluffed Deke’s hair playfully when he passed. The brief contact had Deke’s pulse soaring, and he felt electricity jolt through his body, leaving his nipples tingling. Ryan had moved on to the next guy.

Everyone in the place converged on the bar, wanting to get a closer look at Ryan. At the end opposite Deke, he shed his boots and socks. By the time he got to Deke again, he’d peeled off his T-shirt, displaying plump pink nipples. He pinched one, then encouraged a spectator to pinch the other till they were both dark and hard.

Just like Deke. His cock had swelled, and it throbbed with each movement of Ryan’s hips. The cash was already out, and guys were stuffing bills into Ryan’s jeans, down the waistband.

Ryan unbuckled his belt and let someone slide it out of the loops, grinding his hips hypnotically as more cash got stuffed into his pants. He strutted around before coming back to stand in front of Deke. Ryan popped open the top button on his jeans, and Deke couldn’t help staring at his crotch. He glanced upward, noticing the moist sheen of sweat on Ryan’s chest and abs. He wondered how the hard, budded nipples would taste.

Ryan popped another button and motioned to Deke to do the next one. Against his better judgment—which he had apparently left in the car—Deke popped the rest of Ryan’s buttons. Ryan made a well-practiced move that caused the jeans to slip right down his slim hips.

Now Deke was completely riveted. Ryan’s cock was hard, the smooth crown of it pushing above the waistband of his tiny, pink silk bikini briefs. Deke hadn’t seen that many strippers, but none had ever been this hard while dancing.

The room exploded in shouts and whistles, and guys were cramming money down there, getting in a good grope as they did so. Deke bit his own lower lip and shifted in his seat to keep himself from coming as he watched.

    I love reading & re-reading EM Lynley’s books, especially the Precious Gems, and I am currently working through the Delectable series. I have this new title on my TBR, even though I have read just a few light BDSM titles, as I am intrigued by the premise and how the author will link this subject into her new book (I wonder if it was a difficult subject for the author to link into, as it is quite different from the other titles I have read?). I would also love to know if Trent and Reed have another story, or maybe someone from their acquaintance has a story link in, if Sex, Lies & Wedding Bells will be available in e-book format and Rewriting Histories availability? I love the cover on this book, poor innocent looking Ryan all chained up! Thank you for a chance to win a copy of this book.

      Hi Sula. I’ll answer your questions, but first, thanks for stopping by.

      1. It was a difficult subject to write about, and this is a story I have been thinking about for a long time before I started writing. THere is a lot more D/s than S&M aspects, and the psychological effects on all the characters. For me, that was the most interesting aspect.

      2. I’ll be doing another Precious Gems book that will be out next spring probably.

      3. Sex, Lies and Wedding Bells is available in e-book at my website only right now. I am rewriting it at the moment, so there willl be a new version early next year if I can hit all the deadlines.

      4. Rewriting History is also being reworked and I’m hoping to get those released by the end of the year, including the third book in the series which has not been published at all yet.

      Thanks for entering. I should point out that Bound for Trouble is not one of the prizes this time around. Only backlist books (published 6 months or more).

        Thank you for responding to my queries, but apologies that it ended up being quite a list 😀

        I will look forward to the rewrites and the new Precious Gems book, I wonder what their next adventure will be?

    I read light to medium not into it heavy but can be if the story is great.

    I will read any level of BDSM, at least so far. I haven’t read anything yet that I am uncomfortable with. I’m sure that could change, but I don’t avoid any of it and love a lot of it in my books.

      Hi Jen, thanks for stopping by and commenting. THis one might have less than you are used to reading, but I hope you’ll give it a try.

    light and medium BDSM is fine….and it really depends on what is involved in heavy BDSM – some scenes just make me cringe but others have me intrigued….guess it depends whether it pushes my buttons or not

      HI Lee, thanks for stopping by. I don’t have anything too extreme here, more about power/control than pain. For me, that’s one of the most intriguing aspects of BDSM.

    I love BDSM books but I don’t like hard core. I’m sure I will enjoy this book as I have loved every book I have read by EM Lynley

    I guess it sort of depends on the tone of the BDSM, rather than the amount (I like a “sugar kink” sort of mood)…
