Pleasures of Somerville Park - Free Story

Pleasures of Somerville Park, a new free short story featuring Arsen and Henry from Object of His Desire, is now available on my website! Click HERE to check it out.

It takes place at Arsen's country estate, Somerville Park (hence the title), and occurs eight months after Object of His Desire. It's got smex (of course) and a bit of angst. You also get to meet Arsen's youngest brother who's trying to convince Arsen he's needed in London.

I even made a little cover for it. Yeah, that's what happens when I have the house to myself for an entire day. After I finished up writing the story, I played around in photoshop. At least I resisted the urge to shop for new guys and just used an image I already had. If they look familiar, it's because they're also in my website header (...and random other book covers - those 2 apparently have no issues making out in public).

In other news, congrats goes out to Shawn Lane on the release of Twice in a Lifetime, the second book in her Sutter's Bay series. Go Shawn!!

I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend (...well, those in the US). I spent Saturday and Sunday writing, and Monday hanging out with kidlet and her friend. At least this time they didn't leave Prince Phillip naked or dress him in a tutu -- I know, for I had to pry a pair of jeans onto the poor fellow since they were too tight for the kids to get on him. No shirt, but they let him wear pants while he hung out with the Barbies.


  1. Hi Ava! What a lovely story - thank you for sharing it! The cover you made is very nice, too (Such exhibitionists you have).

  2. Thanks, Wren!

    Yeah, they're quite the exhibitionists. Good thing they're hot. LOL

  3. Thank you! Looking forward to reading this one (although it will definitely have to wait until I am not at work)!

    They're also on the cover of one of the editions of The Joy of Gay Sex - those boys know their stuff. ;)

  4. I loved it!! Thanks so much for sharing!

    ps- smex over a saddle rack...nice call ;)

  5. YAY, YAY, YAY, YAY!!

    You totally made my morning, day, week... etc. You know how much I love Arsen and Henry. :)

    Woo hoo!

    Nice job, sweets!

  6. Chris - I wouldn't want you to be caught reading smut at work. LOL. And The Joy of Gay Sex, too? No wonder those boys are so popular.

    Thanks Lily! :)

    Hey Mandi - Thanks! I briefly considered smex against the wall, but decided to make better use of the location. LOL

    Thanks, Devon! Glad you enjoyed it :)

  7. WooHoo! Loved it, Ava!

    *sigh* Now I just have to wait for Leopold and Arthur...

    Great job, girlie.


  8. Hey Ava!! The cover is nice ;) I'm off to read. Congrats to Shawn :)
