Today we welcome author Dianne Hartsock back to 3 Chicks After Dark! She’s here to share her newest release, Stuck on Rewind, and a day in the life of Ashton! Thanks for being here with us, Dianne.

Thank you so much for hosting me, 3 Chicks After Dark! I thought I’d give you a rundown of a typical day for Ashton.

• Wake up to the alarm, shoo Lance’s warm, pliant body out of his bed…again.
• Put on the coffee while Lance showers, then take his own.
• Eat a bowl of oatmeal while looking over his notes for his statistics class.
• Give Lance a tiny kiss on the lips, when he’d rather crush the guy to him and steal hundreds of them.
• Spend a couple hours playing secretary for Professor Kent.
• Have lunch then on to his afternoon classes.
• Home by four to work on whatever assignments he needs to finish for his classes.
• Eat something and miss Lance, who isn’t home for dinner again.
• Dresses and goes to the club to tend bar and drool over Lance dancing on stage.
• Bed by midnight to have Lance dance in his dreams.

That was great!! Thanks for bringing a little more of Ashton to our tour stop, Dianne!


Ashton has been in love with his best friend for years, watching him grow from a pretty high school boy to the gorgeous erotic dancer at the club where they both work. The problem is that Lance enjoys the attention of a variety of men while Ashton wants him for his very own.

After a day spent denying his attraction for Lance, standing by while their friend Trey openly flirts with him, Ashton decides it’s time to make his move or risk losing his man forever. Once Lance knows how he feels, he’ll realize they should be together. Or is it already too late?

“Fuck!” Ashton shouted in a mixture of anger and ecstasy as Lance swallowed again, then let Ashton’s softening cock slip from between his perfect lips. Ashton leaned on his elbows, his chest heaving while he caught his breath. With a last kiss on his thigh, Lance climbed off the bed, sleek-limbed and graceful, and walked to the dresser with a sassy sway of his hips.

Ashton stared after him and groaned, not sure if he wanted to pull his friend’s ass back into his arms or punch him in the face. It would be incredible to wake up with Lance every morning and make love to him. But he sternly reminded himself that they were only friends and Lance needed to stop climbing into his bed at night uninvited.

“You do remember you have a bed of your own?” he asked, more sharply than he’d intended.

Lance gave him a smirk over his shoulder, making a show of licking the last of Ashton’s spunk off his swollen lips. “You told me to wake you at seven.”

“I didn’t mean… Oh hell.” Ashton fell back on the pillows and threw an arm over his eyes. He swore in exasperation when the mattress dipped and Lance’s familiar scent surrounded him. “Damn it—”

Soft fingers touched his mouth. “Don’t be mad, baby. I didn’t mean anything.”

Ashton peered at him through the dark curls that had flopped into his eyes. The guy looked positively forlorn, and Ashton sat up, giving him a one-armed hug. “I’m not mad. But you don’t need to keep doing that, either. You’re my friend!” He kissed Lance’s cheek, the velvet skin warm with a blush. “You make a terrific roommate, and I like the company.”

“And I like you.” Lance walked his fingers up Ashton’s leg.

Ashton laughed and shooed the hand away, but couldn’t help staring at the enticing evidence of his friend’s arousal between his legs.

“Can I take care of that for you?”

“Not at all.” Lance stood up, waving off Ashton’s offer. “I’ll deal with it in the shower. You have to save your attentions for Mister Man.”

“Who are you talking about…? Wait!” Ashton rolled off the bed and trotted after Lance as he crossed the apartment.

Lance giggled, slipping behind the bathroom door but holding it cracked open an inch. He smiled at Ashton with his pouty, kissable lips. “You know, the boss. Mister Kent.”

“I’m not saving myself for—”

Ashton blinked at the closed door. Why in the world would Lance think he was interested in his boss? Sure, the man was handsome as sin, but he was also an egomaniac and tyrant. Why only yesterday, he’d…

Hot blood scorched Ashton’s neck and face, his arm tingling where Morgan Kent had gripped it, towering over him. The man had bent to his ear, swamping Ashton’s senses with subtle cologne and a hint of sweat as he’d whispered, “If you can’t type a simple letter without mistakes, I’ll find a secretary who can.” He’d tightened his hand almost painfully on Ashton’s arm. “Or maybe I should just bend you over this desk and smack your ass for each mistake?”

Ashton’s dick jumped at the memory. He told it sternly to behave. “We’re not falling for that bastard. We’ll stick with the sweet boys at the club and call it good.”

Meet the author:

Dianne grew up in one of the older homes in the middle of Los Angeles, a place of hardwood floors and secret closets and back staircases. A house where ghosts lurk in the basement and the faces in the paintings watch you walk up the front stairs. Rooms where you keep the closet doors closed tight at night. It’s where her love of the mysterious and wonderful came from.

Dianne now lives in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon with her incredibly patient husband, who puts up with the endless hours she spends hunched over the keyboard letting her characters play. She says Oregon’s raindrops are the perfect setting in which to write. There’s something about being cooped up in the house with a fire crackling on the hearth and a cup of hot coffee warming her hands, which kindles her imagination.

Currently, Dianne works as a floral designer in a locally-owned gift shop. Which is the perfect job for her. When not writing, she can express herself through the rich colors and textures of flowers and foliage.

Bondage Rescue by Morticia Knight
Series: Kiss of Leather Book Three
Kiss of Leather should be read in order for maximum enjoyment

Kyle’s best friend Marshall resurfaces and he’s in a lot of trouble. Can the men at Kiss of Leather convince a former Dom to take on the mouthy sub?

Master Derek and his new sub Corey have signed a contract and enjoy their first scene together. The love between them is strong and Derek is as protective of his boy as ever. The only thing left that would make their world perfect would be to bring Corey’s ex-Dom and abuser to justice.

The legal firm that represents Kiss of Leather is charged with hiring a private investigator to flush out the man who orchestrated Corey’s gang rape. Stone Manning is hesitant to take the job, though. He was once wrongly accused in the death of a sub and swore never to enter a BDSM club again. But he owes attorney Glen Sharp his life after the lawyer got him acquitted.

Their meeting is disrupted when Kyle’s missing friend Marshall calls for help. Master Josh promises to help the mouthy Marshall get back on his feet under one condition: Marshall must sign a six month D/s contract as a fulltime sub and prove he can fully submit to a man as well as learn to respect those around him.

Stone Manning suddenly finds himself charged with taming the brattiest sub ever. In truth, the bigger the brat, the more his heart races with excitement. Marshall promises to be just the type of challenge to inspire Stone to be a Master again. As Stone learns more about him, he sees the pain that Marshall has always tried to numb with drugs and alcohol. Stone also sees a man he could love – if he can ever reach him.

In the meantime, Stone and his investigative partner, Chuck, continue to search for Corey’s attacker. The abusive Dom appears to have gone underground. But what they don’t realize is that the closer they get to their prey, the more dangerous he becomes.

Stone considered Marshall. He was smart. But he was also in so much emotional pain, viewed his life through a lens of fear, loss and regret. Stone wondered if six months would be long enough to address all of Marshall’s demons. He’d have to do his damnedest to be everything that Marshall needed.

“Sit down, please.” Stone indicated to the chair across from him.

Marshall blinked at him in confusion as if Stone had announced to him that he was an iguana. “Okaaaay…” He lowered himself gingerly on the seat as he continued to stare at Stone as though he were insane.

Obviously not the reaction he’d expected after his little rant. Good.

Marshall made a small strangled sound, dropping his chin to his chest. He lifted it again with a sigh. “Okay, Sir.”

Stone rose then circled around the table until he reached Marshall. “Good boy.” He placed his palm on the top of his head, Marshall jerking away the second they made contact.

“What are you doing?”

Marshall’s tone had held an edge of fear to it that Stone didn’t like. He kept his words soft.

“I was praising you because you did that perfectly. Thank you.”

The expression on Marshall’s face held confusion. His brow furrowed as he averted his gaze. “Oh. Uh, you’re welcome, Sir.”

Marshall fiddled with the towel as if repositioning it. There was a noticeable tremble to his hands. Stone wondered if it was from being upset or more related to Marshall’s blood sugar or a lack of alcohol. There was so much to handle in regards to Marshall and Stone didn’t want to overwhelm him. The desire to understand why Marshall had reacted negatively to a gentle touch nagged at him. But it wasn’t about what he wanted. It was about what Marshall needed. The first priority was his sub’s physical health.

“Would you like some coffee, boy?”

Marshall jerked his head up. “Coffee?”

“Yes, boy. Is that something you like to have in the morning?”

“Yes, Sir. But…I mean, isn’t that a part of my whole submission thingy? Josh used to make me do that every morning for him.” Marshall snickered. “Oh my God. He knew better than to have me cook, though.”

“Hmm. That’s good information to have. We’ll have to get you some simple recipes to begin with, perhaps a basic cooking course.” Stone glanced over his shoulder as he approached the Keurig machine. “Do you take anything in your coffee?”

“Hold up. Cooking course? I don’t think so.” He placed a hand delicately across his chest. “I’m not really into that whole Gordon Ramsey scene.” Marshall favored him with a sly smirk. “Although, I wouldn’t mind doing him.”

“You never answered my question.”

“Huh? What question? You were talking about me cooking.” He grunted, speaking as if to himself. “As if that would ever happen.”

“It’s going to happen and I wanted to know how you take your coffee.”

Marshall narrowed his eyes. “You can’t make me do something I don’t know how to do.”

“Once you finish a cooking course, then yes, I can make you do it.”

Marshall crossed his arms and Stone noted the wince he made that was undoubtedly from pulling on the wound on his elbow. “I’m not cooking and no, you can’t make me.”

Stone leaned with his back against the tiled counter, his stance relaxed, almost as if he was bored. “Are you aware of what they’ll make you do in prison, Marshall? And how do you suppose they might make you do something you don’t want to do? Josh explained to me that the amount of Ecstasy and cocaine they found on the ground near you when you were thrown from the car would be enough to put you away for a very long time. How confident are you that a public defender would be your best bet as opposed to the type of legal counsel Josh can provide? All he wants in return is my assurances that you’re submitting to me completely and showing me, as well as those you interact with, proper respect. I’m to report to him on a weekly basis.”

The distress on Marshall’s face was clear. “But…Josh said I had six months. I can’t be perfect right away! What if I make a mistake, and I didn’t mean to, but you tell Josh I’m a fuck-up? This isn’t fair!” Marshall’s breathing elevated. “This is a fucking nightmare. I’ll never be able to handle this. I can’t cook. I’m not good at anything except shaking my ass and sucking cock.” Marshall buried his face in his hands before tearing them away. “Fuck it. I’m leaving.” Marshall started to rise.


Marshall jumped, but stayed seated, his eyes widened as he stared at Stone. He made sure to keep his voice calm and soothing as he spoke. “You’re not a fuck-up and once we get to the point of discussing consequences to actions, calling yourself that, or any other derogatory reference, will be cause for punishment.”

“Like telling Josh you’re done with me.”

It hadn’t been a question and had been said with a veneer of sadness. Marshall felt the tug in his chest he’d first experienced when he’d seen Marshall at the club.

Our Thoughts:

Sigh. I truly believe I am addicted to Morticia Knight’s books, but I especially love the BDSM series, Kiss of Leather. I like how each story features the main two protagonists but also reflects back to the previous couple. Each book, so far, has opened with a continuation from the couple prior. It’s usually an intensely intimate, groundbreaking scene for that couple.

All of these men have such close ties through Kiss of Leather and long formed friendships that their stories are bound to be interwoven. Knight does a fantastic job keeping the bonds strong and the storylines moving without leaving anyone behind. We all know how much readers have a hard time letting go of previous protagonists! With the Kiss of Leather series, we don’t have to let go!

Bondage Rescue begins with Corey and Derek. Where they’re at with their relationship and dealing with Corey’s  past abuse and it’s effects. Derek is ever the protector and Corey is thriving under his new dominant. Corey’s abuser must be brought to justice and that’s how we meet Stone, a former Dom who’s been out of the scene for awhile. He’s now focusing his time on his investigative work and he’s on the case to find Tony, Corey’s abuser.

Stone has some skeletons in his past and he’s very defensive but his worries are quickly put to rest. That’s good because when Marshall is finally found, someone needs to get him the help he desperately needs and push him to be the best he can be. That someone is Stone.

Marshall isn’t hurting from abuse or anything like that. He’s hurting from self-loathing, substance abuse and loneliness. His spirit is totally broken and bruised. With Stone’s patience and firm rules, Marshall just might be able to break the cycle of abuse and see how special he truly is.

I loved how sassy Marshall is with Stone. Stone’s patience and understanding are saintly. When it really counts, Marshall steps up and has the control he needs. There’s so much progress and growth with Marshall, by far the biggest turn around of all the submissives so far in this series.

Read this book for the sassy sub, scared sub, suspenseful return of the bad guy, and the bad ass Doms who come to the rescue.

The men from Kiss of Leather gather together to rescue a terrified young sub. But it’s Master Derek who wants to keep him for good.

Master Gavin and his boy, Kyle are celebrating their newly established bond when Master Josh calls requesting their help. Josh’s sub, David, needs the men to help his best friend from childhood while they’re away at a BDSM convention in San Francisco.

Corey ran away from his Master after a horrible scene, but he blames himself for everything that happened. No Master would ever want him if they were to find out what he did. Corey’s not sure if he’ll ever feel safe enough to give himself to a Master again anyway, even if all he’s ever wanted was to belong to somebody.

Master Derek agrees to watch over Corey until Josh and David return from the convention. All he needs is another pretty twink messing with his head and his heart, so the older, growly bear of a man determines to keep his distance. But when Corey wakes up screaming after a devastating nightmare, Derek is more drawn than ever to the young sub – the need to keep Corey safe from whatever or whoever has hurt him becoming his main priority.

Kyle and Corey develop a friendship when Corey assists Kyle in the dungeon furniture workshop. Kyle has his own fears – the ones that make him feel he’s broken because of the things he desires to do with Gavin. Through helping Kyle, and receiving his own help through Derek, Corey decides he’s ready to let go of the demons from his past and move forward into a new life.

Now if Corey can only get Derek to believe that he’s ready – and to finally do something about it.

Derek was not one to live with mystery – especially with someone under his roof. He respected Corey’s boundaries and his need to keep certain things to himself, but he didn’t think it was completely unreasonable to at least attempt to be friendly with each other. Corey finally answered him.

“I’m usually up pretty early. I can’t sleep much past seven, even when I was going to school and it was the weekend.” Corey’s eyes tracked everything in the kitchen that wasn’t anywhere near Derek. “Plus, I get really tired at night. I used to be the one who fell asleep on New Year’s Eve.”

“Used to be?”

Corey finally looked in his direction. “Tony was more of a night owl. He insisted I stay awake the last few New Year’s.”

“Tony your Dom?”

Corey actually appeared to shrink into himself even more. “Ex-Dom.”

“Hmm.” Derek shut off the burners then pressed the lever down on the toaster. “Hungry?”

“Yeah.” Corey nodded with an enthusiasm that made Derek wonder about the kid’s recent circumstances and whether he’d had enough to eat. He finally lifted his gaze to Derek. “Can I set the table for you? Or…something?”

“I’m not that formal here. You can grab the orange juice and butter from the fridge though. I already have plates and glasses.” Derek wondered if he could draw Corey out of himself a bit more. Mundane topics seemed to be relatively safe. The mention of the Dom had caused him to shut down instantly. “Hope you like chorizo and eggs.”

Corey brought over the items Derek had requested. He set them down then moved quickly away.

“Anything you have is great. I meant…” Corey swallowed, his expression pained. “I meant to say thank you to you last night. I should’ve said it to Gavin…” Corey’s eyes flashed up at him with panic. “Um, Master Gavin and Kyle, but they left before I could tell them. This is really cool of you to do. So, thank you.”

Derek offered him a smile. It wasn’t an expression he employed often, but he sensed that Corey needed some reassuring. “Sure. You’re welcome.” He finished pouring the juice then handed the tumblers back to Corey. “Here you go. Have a seat and I’ll get the rest.”

Corey nodded and did what he was told. Derek found himself intrigued by the young man. It was the absolute last damn thing he needed at the moment, but he couldn’t help it. Corey was too young, too pretty – but he didn’t seem to be too spoiled. Derek ached to know more. All he had to do was figure out how to approach Corey without scaring the shit out of him.

Our thoughts:

Safe Limits is the second book in the Kiss of Leather series. These books definitely need to be read in order as the characters and issues in the first book bleed over into the second. Gavin and Kyle were just coming together and establishing their Dom/sub relationship. In Safe Limits, Kyle is still struggling with his desire to give up control. It’s his first experience in this type of relationship and dabbling in BDSM in general. He’s warring internally over his desire for impact play and what that means for him. Luckily, Kyle has someone new he can discuss his wants and feelings with, Corey.

Corey is a friend of David’s and he’s in need. He’s left an abusive Dom and seeks shelter and space to heal. Unfortunately the timing of his arrival coincides with Josh and David being away at a convention and Kyle and Gavin away on holiday. That leaves Derek to take in and care for Corey. Normally  Derek would be strict and his usual domineering self but he sees from the first moment that Corey is too skittish for that.

Derek does his best to make Corey feel comfortable and protected. That kindness goes a long way in helping Corey. His abuse was ongoing and his idea of what a real Dom and a full-time submissive relationship should be is totally skewed.  Derek is the perfect person to set all of that straight for Corey.

Corey and  Derek are a dream. They’re literally courting each other. Shy smiles. Gentle touches. Going out for motorcycle rides and day trips, BBQs with friends. It’s all so sweet and exactly what Corey needs.  Derek shows the perfect amount of gentleness towards Corey as he heals.  Derek also ensures Corey gets mental help for his ordeal. They don’t touch at all sexually until  Derek is certain that Corey wants it and is ready.

Safe Limits is one of my favorite type of BDSM books. Although it doesn’t have much in the form of scenes or playing, it does have the trust building and respect that is so important for those involved in the BDSM scene. Reading about Corey be treated right and getting help can be just as rewarding as reading a book full of intense impact play.

I have a feeling we will get something more intense from Corey and  Derek in the next installment of the Kiss of Leather series. I, personally, can’t wait!

Can the kinky billionaire owner of Dark Fantasy Resort Casino capture the heart of a muscled SWAT officer with a secret fetish?

SWAT Team Hostage Negotiator, Steve, wonders why he can’t stay away from the spoiled rich Allistair, owner of Dark Fantasy Resort Casino. They have mutual kinks – ones Steve can’t find with other lovers—but there’s something else about the emotionally detached, beautiful man that calls to him.

Billionaire Allistair stays alone in his luxury penthouse apartment at the top of Dark Fantasy, terrified of the real world and of opening himself up to genuine emotions. He takes lover after lover, all of them allowing him to do whatever he wants to their bodies, in the hopes that they can scam something from him.

One night is all he ever shares with a plaything—he knows they only want the money and luxury he can offer them and nothing more. But the down to earth Steve is different. They share the same kinks and are explosive when together. But could the muscled law officer ever want more than the lust-filled encounters that have become such an addiction?

As they grow closer, they discover they also have to find a balance between Steve’s everyday world and Allistair’s entitled world before they can truly find an ever after. They also have to make sure Allistair stays safe. Filthy rich playboys are too tempting to those who seek the ultimate payday—and who aren’t afraid of hurting someone to get it.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM and fetishism.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Steve kissed him again, exploring Allistair’s mouth with his tongue. He retreated, brushing Allistair’s cheek with his thumb. Allistair angled his head to suck on the digit, wrapping his lips around the calloused flesh. He glanced down as he did and noticed the bruising on Steve’s wrist from when he’d yanked so viciously against the ropes that Allistair had restrained him with.

After letting go of Steve’s tasty thumb, he pressed his lips to the purpling marks.

“Do you want some arnica cream for your wrists?”

“No. They’re fine.”

It was the same answer Steve always gave, but something in Allistair had to be sure every time.

“You’re not worried what others might think at work?”

Steve seemed distracted by loving on him, but in between nibbles, he spoke.

“If they’re bad enough, I put a Band-Aid on them.” Steve licked Allistair’s pulse point. “Otherwise, little bruises here and there don’t raise any alarms.” Steve scraped his teeth along Allistair’s ear lobe. “It’s not an uncommon occurrence on the job.”

Before Allistair had a chance to respond, Steve rolled them so that he was on top, holding him down. Such a thing rarely happened.

“I thought I fucked you unconscious?”

“Well, I’m awake now.”

“Hungry yet?”

Steve’s lips curled into a wicked smile. “Yes. For your cock.”

“Oh my.” Allistair’s dick had twitched slightly, but that was as far as it’d gone.

“I’m going to eat you up, make you come harder than you ever have before, make you scream my name. I want to be your everything.”

Our Thoughts:

A BDSM story always comes up in my lineup of books at just the right time. A big fan of BDSM and kink in my books, Morticia Knight was spot on in this installment of the Sin City Uniforms series.

Steve is a cop, actually, he’s a hostage negotiator. That line of work in Vegas can be quite grueling. Not all standoffs end well and when they don’t he really needs to find a release, a way to decompress. When that need to too overwhelming to ignore, Steve finds someone to fuck or beat it out of him, preferably both. One place he goes to find release is Dark Fantasy. When there, usually he is summoned by the eccentric Allistair.

Allistair is ridiculously rich. With extreme wealth comes extreme loneliness and panic. People no longer see him as a person, but a means to financial gain. He’s also a walking target. People want a piece of him and one of them includes his crazy brother. Most of the men in Allistair’s life have wanted one thing- money, never love and a life with Allistair. That is, until Steve.

Steve comes to the club and always accepts Allistair invitation to play in his room. Allistair is a master dominator and Steve is the perfect submissive. He’s a masochist who thrives on pain and being taken hard and rough. He’s open to many types of play but he also has a fetish that plays right into one of Allistair’s fetishes.

The two men compliment each other well as far as kink and BDSM play. Now they just need to find out if they can be companions in life. Allistair wants so much more in life but can he move past fears to fill the hole in his heart? Can Steve deal with a super rich eccentric and be patient enough to be what Allistair needs? Yes! They seem to find just what they need.

If you like good, strong and unyielding BDSM scenes that push limits and leave a man spent, this is your book! The play is superb and the men surprisingly emotional and vulnerable but also strong.
