Locking Horns (shapeshifter m/m) ADULT excerpt

Out now from Loose Id. A new novella continuing the adventures of Herne the Hunter. Set in the Greenwood universe.

Buy it from Loose Id Amazon Amazon.co.uk All Romance

This story can be read as a sequel to Bound to the Beast, a prequel to Bound for the Forest, or as an introduction to the Greenwood series.

Blurb: England, 1804. Herne the Hunter has roamed the forests for hundreds of years and he’s known love with fellow half stag-shifter Tam for the past two centuries. The passion between them sizzles hot as ever, but times are changing. Greenwood magic is fading and this threatens both Herne and Tam’s immortality and the bond between them.

After Herne discovers the Greenwood fairies are dying, and dockworkers felling oaks to build warships might be to blame, he wants to fight the modern world with his warrior’s sword. Tam, who embraces all things new, desires a dominant partner, not a brute who wants to drag England back to the Dark Ages. Soon the Wild Hunt, Herne’s ancient army of doom, are back, tempting him to unleash his wrath, and the rhythm of Herne and Tam’s lovemaking seems broken for good. When Tam’s plan to reinstate a spring ritual goes awry, only Herne can save him. Herne must choose between his past and future, and they both must decide what matters most—eternal life or eternal love.

Excerpt:

A blossom-scented breeze blasted Tam as they bounded over tangles of ivy and lawlessly straggling flowers, into deeper, denser forest. Swift and sure as stags, they wove through glades of beech and pine, damp with dew and drenched with the smell of herbs. The race exhilarated Tam. They ducked the low limbs of the chestnuts and leaped winding roots; coarse brushwood scratched his ankles, but with Herne grasping him, he could never grow tired. The huntsman exuded strength as surely as their perspiration mingled where they touched, thrilling him, though he couldn’t help noting the forest’s scars. Many young spruces and firs had been brutalized with coppicing—an ancient practice and part of the forest’s life. But it had grown too prevalent, and where some of the oldest, greatest oaks had once stood, yawning gaps had opened up, revealing the woolly clouds sailing above.

His rising nerves diminished his ardor. Would the dell where he and Herne became betrothed still be there? While he was always keen to embrace new ways and customs, he’d be saddened if none of the beloved places remained intact.

Herne thundered to a halt. The laces of his tunic had unthreaded during their run. His garb fell open to display his heaving chest, adorned with crisp, dark hair. Tam wanted to tear the huntsman’s clothing from him but looked around first. “Are we here?”

“We are.”

Tam spotted a distinctive oak at the head of the dell—with the hooked branch from which he’d once taken the betrothal ribbon—and laughed with delight. “Yes! It’s still here. And look.” He pointed to a circle of toadstools, three paces distant. They were small and shriveled, an unhealthy yellowy-fawn color, but they were there. “The fairy ring remains too. Come on.”

He drew Herne into the circle, which reached about two yards across, and they stood at its heart. Herne held him and rubbed his erection against Tam once more. “Do you remember what we do now?” teased Tam. As he laughed, a stiff breeze skirmished through the trees, and a line of worry creased Herne’s brow. Tam’s humor faded. “What is it?”

“I heard something. A faint whisper on the wind called my name.”

Tam hadn’t noticed anything so distinct, but he’d been caught up in his joke and focused above all things on Herne. His hopes lurched. “Do you think it was them? The fair folk? I’ll wager they’re coming to watch us.”

“Maybe it was,” mumbled Herne, easing his frown. “Now be quiet, and let me fuck you.”

My Eye Candy Covers (The Greenwood series, m/m)

I recently blogged on my beautiful covers for the Dirty Birdies Flock Hop. I thought I’d share my thoughts again here (as an excuse to show off the pretty pictures!!!)

Locking Horns:

The new release! This beautiful depiction of Tam matches the one of his lover, Herne, on my Bound to the Beast cover—and it might be the prettiest of my covers yet (though there’s tough competition!) The face is perfect for Tam, as is the pose. He knows he’s good looking! I love the sense of movement, and the beautiful woodland details, which take a high res zoom to do justice to—the more you look, the more you see. The lurking stag signifying that Tam is a semi-shifter is a wonderful touch, and the swirling smoke gives atmosphere. For me, this last detail also hints at the dangerous encroachment of the modern world into the ancient forests, a theme of the book.

KB_LockingHorns_coverin

Tam is one of my favorite characters to write. He’s kind of bratty, and talks to much, and the total opposite to his lover, legendary Greenwood immortal, Herne the Hunter (for more about him, see below!) I always find talky characters easier to write than those strong silent heroes. After they fall in love during the events of Bound to the Beast, Herne manages to remake Tam as a fellow semi stag-shifter spirit. Locking Horns picks up the epic story of Tam and Herne’s love two centuries later. Here’s the blurb:

Blurb: England, 1804. Herne the Hunter has roamed the forests for hundreds of years and he’s known love with fellow half stag-shifter Tam for the past two centuries. The passion between them sizzles hot as ever, but times are changing. Greenwood magic is fading and this threatens both Herne and Tam’s immortality and the bond between them.

After Herne discovers the Greenwood fairies are dying, and dockworkers felling oaks to build warships might be to blame, he wants to fight the modern world with his warrior’s sword. Tam, who embraces all things new, desires a dominant partner, not a brute who wants to drag England back to the Dark Ages. Soon the Wild Hunt, Herne’s ancient army of doom, are back, tempting him to unleash his wrath, and the rhythm of Herne and Tam’s lovemaking seems broken for good.

KB_BoundBeast_coverlgBound to the Beast: Herne the Hunter! Raaaah! What more is there to say? Like the new image of Tam, I love the sense of motion in this pic, as well as his rearing antlers, and his brooding expression. My Herne is into epic amounts of brooding. Before he meets Tam in Bound to the Beast, Herne has been dwelling on his previous lover’s betrayal of him for over fifteen hundred years!  The fiery shades of this cover also capture Herne’s character well. After all, when his blood is stirred, he unleashes the antlers of a stag and the passions of a beast! Click here for more about Bound to the Beast and Herne the Hunter.

KB_BoundForest_coversmallBound for the Forest:

My first book and my first cover! When I first saw this, I was totally blown away. I couldn’t believe that such a beautiful design could be associated with a story I wrote—though I had to, because Anne Cain had matched the descriptions of the characters so perfectly. And the bondage with ivy! I will always love this cover to bits. Oh, and just a little note for those who enjoyed this book – three of the characters, Scarlet, Jemima, and Arya are also featured in Locking Horns, set thirteen years before Bound for the Forest.

Lord of the Forest:

KB_LordForest_coverlg

Robin Hood—and so perfectly my Robin Hood. Once again, I love the details, the arrow and quiver, and of course, Robin’s splendid body to boot. The autumnal colors capture Robin’s world weariness and his complicated relationship with Cal, as well as the seasonal setting of the book. Read an excerpt here.

An Interview with Tam and Herne (Locking Horns, m/m)

KB_LockingHorns_coverlg-1Today I’m going to be chatting with the characters from my new fantasy m/m Locking Horns, Herne and Tam.  Herne the Hunter needs little introduction. He’s an ancient Greenwood legend, an immortal spirit, who shifts to sport the antlers of a stag when his blood is stirred. Horny!  He’s been with village lad, Tam, since 1588, when he claimed and remade Tam as a demispirit.   I told their story in my novel, Bound to the Beast, and now I’ve written a sequel, Locking Horns, which picks up their story over two hundred years later. If you’ve not read the first story, don’t worry, there’s a recap in Locking Horns.

KB: Hi boys!

Tam: Good day to you, Kay. *narrows his eyes* I hope you’re not going to do anything dreadful to me this fine spring morning.  You nearly killed me in Bound to the Beast–I got beaten up by my brothers, the fairies, half the village, and nearly ravaged by an army of the undead.  And then there was the bondage and the spanking.

KB. I didn’t hear you complaining about the latter, Tam.

Tam:  Well, no. *pouts and looks shiftily at Herne* But that’s not the point. I’m bloody nervous about what you’ve got in store for me in Locking Horns.

KB:  I can promise more bondage.

Tam: Yay! I mean, uh, that’s not so bad. But what about the rest of it?

KB: *looks guilty* Uh, you might get beaten up a teeny weeny bit, but you know I love making my heroes suffer. Compared to Cal and Robin Hood in Lord of the Forest (another of the Greenwood novels) you get off lightly, honey.  And you get some mindblowing sex.

Tam: All right. I forgive you. Aren’t you supposed to be interviewing us?

KB: I would if you’d stop talking and let me!  Er, Herne. Can I ask you something?

Herne: *looks brooding and snorts*

KB: I’ll take that as a yes. So, how does it feel to be over eighteen-hundred years old?

Herne: *glowers*

Tam: He’s all right with it really, just doesn’t like talking about it. We’re both pretty lucky, because we don’t really age. Herne’s strong as an ox–he can throw me over one shoulder, a Maypole over another, and still hike ten miles through the forest.  He’s a handy fellow to have around.  We are getting a bit worried about this modern age, mind. Times are changing, and Greenwood magic is fading.  Few people believe in the old religions of the forest anymore, and the fairies have gone missing.  We remain immortal for now…but who knows what the future brings?

KB: You’ve only reached 1804, Tam. The next couple of centuries might get even scarier. The Industrial Revolution has barely started for you, let alone the space and technological ages.KB_BoundBeast_coverlg

Tam: *looks alarmed* What are you talking about?

KB: I’m the interviewer, remember?  And how the hell am I going to get Herne to say something?

Tam: *whispers in Herne’s ear*

Herne: *glowers slightly less and nearly smiles*

Tam: I think he’ll answer one after what I just promised him as a reward.  Make it a good one.

KB: How about a smutty one? What feels better–when Tam sucks your antlers, or when he sucks your, er… *blushes slightly*

Herne: *grins*

KB: Is that all the answer I get?

Herne: No. It’s the latter you silly little girl.

KB. Oh. Well, thank you. That’s cleared that up.

Anyway, thanks for dropping by. I’ll warn you two now, I’ve had so much fun picking up your adventures in 1804 that it’s unlikely you’re going to remain there for long.  The 21st Century is not so far off, and we’re potty about shifters here! Ready to face the future?

Tam: *strokes Herne’s massive thigh* As long as we’re together, we’ll be just fine.

KB.  Sadly, the best plots happen when I drive you apart and make you suffer, at least for a little while, so there might be some choppy waters ahead. Brace yourself, boys!

Tam and Herne: *glare as one*

Teaser excerpt:

Tam’s words trailed to near nothing as Herne pressed forward and seized his lips in a ravishing kiss. He yielded at once, drawing Herne’s hot tongue inside, savoring the scrub of hard stubble against his softer skin. Even after all their years together, Herne’s taste and commanding demeanor sent a wondrous shock coursing through him. Herne’s raw masculinity had been wrought in a lost era of tribal lords, when he’d battled the might of Rome. His power as a spirit—gifted to him by the Mother Goddess, creator of all things—rolled in torrents from him too.

Herne crushed Tam against him, sweeping to such depths that Tam could scarce breathe. Tam didn’t care. He slipped his tongue against Herne’s and worked the kiss with an affection that sang sweeter each season they passed together. The demispirit of the holly, while not always in perfect agreement with his lover, had been created to cherish the oak.

When Herne finally broke the kiss, he cupped Tam’s face and growled in hunger. Tam gasped for air, and his cock ached. He needed Herne to pull him closer, to fuck him to oblivion, and he couldn’t contain the lust that flooded his veins.

An exquisite pain ripped through his head, and the pressure released. As Herne caressed him, his antlers surged upward from his skull. When Herne had made him a demispirit, he’d shared his crown. Though not as majestic as Herne’s, Tam’s horns were now as impressive as those of a buck in his prime, covered in a velvety down.

Panting, Tam scuffed his foot and straightened, adjusting to the weight on his head. When he leaned closer to Herne, their bony appendages interwove with a noisy clack.

WARNING: This story is suitable for over 18s only (includes male/male sexual practices and light BDSM – bondage.)

Excerpt:

“Stop playing the fool and be quiet. Now you have to take your tunic off.”

“What?”

The elf paled beneath his golden tan. Ivenhal’s heart sank to his boots. He’d always dreaded the possibility of having to forcibly remove a prisoner’s clothes for the binding, though he’d expected any victim of the Helon barrier to be unconscious. His attraction to this creature only made matters worse.

“Take your clothes off, elf, or I’ll have to do it for you.”

“I promise I won’t use magic on you. If you’d just tell me what’s going on, I won’t even try to escape, but–”

The elf broke off as Ivenhal stepped into the cage, stooping to fit under the low gridded roof, and slammed the door behind. Ivenhal turned a heavy key in the lock. “When we’re done with this, you can ask me whatever you like, though I can’t promise you any good answers. Do we have a deal?”

The elf nodded. He was trembling, and Ivenhal stifled the words I’m sorry once more. This was war, and he did what he had to.

“Good. Now come on. It won’t be so bad. If it gets cold in here tonight, I’ll light a fire.”

“How kind.”

The elf arched a dark brow, and Ivenhal sharpened his glower. He wasn’t in the mood for sarcasm, though it was preferable to physical resistance. The elf tugged apart the laces that fastened his rustic tunic, and dragged it off over his head.

Morning sunlight streamed through the tower’s narrow windows, highlighting the angles of the prisoner’s broad shoulders, each ridge and contour of his stomach and hairless chest. His clothing cast aside, he hooked his arms above his slim waist and peeped up at Ivenhal from beneath a wisp of his honey-and-chestnut-streaked hair. Only a ragged green cloth attached to a thong concealed his loins.

“So bind me,” whispered the elf.

Ivenhal gritted his teeth lest his contact-starved body quake. The elf licked those plush lips, exacerbating a hot ache in Ivenhal’s throat–and the erection he could no longer suppress. The idea of touching an enemy while so bestirred made him feel wrong and dirty. He strove to think of anything that would quell his lusts.

Lord of the Forest by Kay Berrisford. Genre: m/m, fantasy and paranormal with some BDSM and fetish elements. Novel length (60k). Published by Loose Id. Art by Anne Cain.

Blurb: England, 1217. Dark forces are rising. In the Greenwood, foul spirits grow powerful, and greedy barons plunder the lands. Only one man dares fight back—Robin Hood.

Robin’s band of brothers is broken. Now a lone warrior, he denies his famous name and laments the friends and lovers he’s lost. When the fair folk capture Cal, a beautiful young forester descended from the Greenwood’s ancient protectors, Robin rescues him and forges a new alliance.

Despite a sizzling attraction, Robin senses Cal isn’t like his old comrades, and he’s right. Cal’s been raised as a royal spy. He plans to seduce and betray Robin, but can’t harm the man he’s falling hard for. Mistrust and arguments spill into passionate lovemaking, as Cal learns the meaning of loyalty, fighting beside Robin, the only friend he’s ever known. Even the enchanted forest seeks to bind Robin and the returned protector ever tighter.

Their connection will be tested by nature’s wildest forces, Robin’s past, Cal’s lies, and in a baron’s darkest dungeon. To survive, Robin and Cal must admit their love and embrace their true destinies. Only then can they save England and each other—and win their happiness ever after.

ADULT excerpt

Had Daniel died hating him? Robin felt numb inside.

Cal touched his knee. “I didn’t mean to bring back bad memories.”

Robin couldn’t help but take comfort in Cal’s presence. It had been too long since he’d sat and talked with another man like this.

“But does devotion play no part?” asked the forester. “That connection between two souls when their eyes meet and their bodies touch. When they make love and know there can never be another.”

Robin gave no answer, because he had none. He’d never formed such an unbreakable bond, and he must end this charade now.

Instead he remained still as a statue, his throat dry. He stared into Cal’s eyes, striving to read more than the flicker of reflected firelight, and discerned no more or less than the reflection of his soul. A furnace of loneliness, pain, and desire blazed there. Hope tugged at his heart.

Could this be real? After so long alone, could my endless prayers for someone to hold have been answered?

He reached for Cal, tentative as if the forester were a sprite of moonbeams that would disintegrate beneath his touch. Swift as a pouncing wolf, Cal took Robin’s face in his hands and pressed his mouth to Robin’s.

Hot flesh brushed flesh, the contact gentle and moist and sending a bolt of fire straight to Robin’s cock. Caution shouted in the back of his brain but proved no use. Cal tasted of warm chestnuts, soft and sublime. The lad licked the seam of Robin’s mouth, and madness seized him. He parted his lips, grabbed Cal’s silky hair, and intensified the kiss. Cal moaned into Robin’s throat and drifted a hand up his thigh, setting his skin aflame and his prick stiffening.

In truth, Robin had rarely kissed before, not like this. With his men, he’d fumble and joke, then see straight to the business of their needy cocks. Now he enfolded Cal in his arms, pulling him closer, mindful of the lad’s injury. Cal worked his mouth slickly and sweetly, unleashing waves of feral passion that washed through Robin like a flood. He reveled in the union of flesh against flesh, the rising heat in his shaft, which Cal stroked so roughly it wept. Cal straddled him, scrubbing his burgeoning erection against the bared flesh of Robin’s thigh. Damn, Robin wanted to fuck him.

And he’d fall straight into a forester’s honeyed trap.

He broke the kiss and pushed the forester away. Cal whined, lust steeping his snatched breaths.

“That,” said Robin, “is not love either. For my part, it’s a lonely man being a fool. For your part…” He neither knew what accusation to make nor truly wished to say it.

ADULT excerpt

Had Daniel died hating him? Robin felt numb inside.

Cal touched his knee. “I didn’t mean to bring back bad memories.”

Robin couldn’t help but take comfort in Cal’s presence. It had been too long since he’d sat and talked with another man like this.

“But does devotion play no part?” asked the forester. “That connection between two souls when their eyes meet and their bodies touch. When they make love and know there can never be another.”

Robin gave no answer, because he had none. He’d never formed such an unbreakable bond, and he must end this charade now.

Instead he remained still as a statue, his throat dry. He stared into Cal’s eyes, striving to read more than the flicker of reflected firelight, and discerned no more or less than the reflection of his soul. A furnace of loneliness, pain, and desire blazed there. Hope tugged at his heart.

Could this be real? After so long alone, could my endless prayers for someone to hold have been answered?

He reached for Cal, tentative as if the forester were a sprite of moonbeams that would disintegrate beneath his touch. Swift as a pouncing wolf, Cal took Robin’s face in his hands and pressed his mouth to Robin’s.

Hot flesh brushed flesh, the contact gentle and moist and sending a bolt of fire straight to Robin’s cock. Caution shouted in the back of his brain but proved no use. Cal tasted of warm chestnuts, soft and sublime. The lad licked the seam of Robin’s mouth, and madness seized him. He parted his lips, grabbed Cal’s silky hair, and intensified the kiss. Cal moaned into Robin’s throat and drifted a hand up his thigh, setting his skin aflame and his prick stiffening.

In truth, Robin had rarely kissed before, not like this. With his men, he’d fumble and joke, then see straight to the business of their needy cocks. Now he enfolded Cal in his arms, pulling him closer, mindful of the lad’s injury. Cal worked his mouth slickly and sweetly, unleashing waves of feral passion that washed through Robin like a flood. He reveled in the union of flesh against flesh, the rising heat in his shaft, which Cal stroked so roughly it wept. Cal straddled him, scrubbing his burgeoning erection against the bared flesh of Robin’s thigh. Damn, Robin wanted to fuck him.

And he’d fall straight into a forester’s honeyed trap.

He broke the kiss and pushed the forester away. Cal whined, lust steeping his snatched breaths.

“That,” said Robin, “is not love either. For my part, it’s a lonely man being a fool. For your part…” He neither knew what accusation to make nor truly wished to say it.
