Together in Cyn VBT

A small book sitting out on a table shouldn’t incite fear in anyone.

But what if that book was your diary and you learned your two best friends, men you have ached for your entire life, have just read every last word? Pages and pages filled with dark fantasies and forbidden dreams so explicit they leave nothing to the imagination.

And what if those two friends were included in every last one?

This is exactly where Cyn Andrews now finds herself.

Stuck somewhere between wanting to hate Jared and Chris Kennedy for violating her privacy and just plain wanting to be stuck somewhere between them. She could never choose only one brother, so she’s kept her feelings buried for more than a decade, and a past mistake has kept her silent and alone…until now.

Everything she’s ever wanted may have just been handed to her in the form of an invitation to The Library. Not just a building filled with books, but a members only BDSM club the brothers own and have kept hidden from her for years.

Is it pity or desire that fueled the invitation?

What other secrets have they been keeping from her?

Can she protect her heart and face her biggest fear while discovering the art of submitting to two Doms?

It’d be a sin not to find out…

“STOP!” I yelled. “STOP!”

After pushing them away I stumbled to the side and caught myself on the back of a chair.

My entire body went cold, even as sweat gathered along my back, as I struggled to catch my breath. What had I done? I could hear harsh breathing behind me. If I turned, I knew their chests would heave with every staccato breath punctuating the silence. Their fingers clenching over and over, aching to take action and pull me back between them. But I didn’t look back. Couldn’t see anything, but the small lavender book sitting on the table.

I stumbled over to it, picked it up, cradling it to my chest. It was my diary. The one I kept in my nightstand and the one I wrote everything in. My fears, my fantasies, my deepest desires they didn’t know anything about. I’d confessed it all. Desires I’d shared with only one other person and it had ruined everything. The self respect I had worked so hard for since that awful night slowly dissolved.

“Let me explain,” Jared said only a few steps away.

“How could you?” I grabbed my purse from the floor and swung it over my shoulder, still clutching the book. “I thought I could trust you. What was all of this about tonight, really? Pity?”

I knew I was going to cry. Hot tears filled my eyes, but I would have fallen on a bed of rusty nails before showing them how badly I was hurt.

Jared stood in my path and held my shoulders so I couldn’t side step him. I glared up at him and willed the tears to stay in place.

Author Bio and Links:
I’m going to just jump right in and get the easy stuff out of the way up-front. I am a wife, mother and business owner in Texas with very long black hair and a penchant for high heels and pretty outrageous toe nail polish. I have a very supportive family that I love unconditionally and am fortunate enough to genuinely like and respect them as well.

I started reading romance back in college, liked it so-so, and then I found erotica. Stories a bit on the dark side, a lot on the naughty side, and at the risk of sounding cheesy, it felt like coming home. Finding a genre made just for minds like mine was an amazing revelation, and I swear the characters in my head haven’t stopped hounding me since! 

Something I always love reading about other authors are the funny quirks and idiosyncrasies that make each of us unique, so I thought I’d share a few of mine. These are in no particular order and pretty random, so brace yourselves…

I am a morning person who doesn’t drink caffeine, and I am definitely a glass-half-full kind of girl. I have an extreme case of being left-hand stupid and am bad at all sports that end in “ball”!  Hot weather is my favorite because I'm cold all the time, and I adore lying in the sun. You’ll find a closed sign hanging off my forehead at 10 p.m. pretty much every night when my brain clocks out. What’s weird is I can write ‘til the wee hours of the morning though. Probably because the characters just shove me aside so they can say their piece.

Ooh, and I never procrastinate! If something needs to be done today, it should have been finished yesterday. I call this fantastic; several people, who shall remain nameless, call it having a bug up my A**… I think I’ll stick with fantastic.

I refuse to use a flat sheet to sleep, I love perfume but only one kind, and before I die I want to own flip-flops in every color of the rainbow. And last but not least, the yea or nay on a particular food being deemed good or gross is based off of texture first, taste second.

I hope my writing speaks for itself, and I hope it speaks to you.  The fact that I have the opportunity to share a little piece of myself with you absolutely floors me. On a daily basis I am overwhelmed by the good fortune that is my life, and vowed years ago never to take it for granted.

Best advice I’ve ever been given – find the real you and never settle for anything less!  Well guess what?  I found her!  Lord help the rest of you.

  10. Wow... I kept a diary for years and years, and while I don't recall keeping such provocative secrets in mine, I still shudder to imagine what could happen if people happened to pick it up! Eeek! And thanks for sharing the trailer--it's always fun to see what images and music are inspired by the whole look and feel of the story!

  11. flchen1 - The trailer was my first attempt at After Effects and I learned a mountain's worth of stuff about what to do / not to do / the number of bad words I knew. That was impressive too!

    I've been informed it was lacking man-candy and it SO IS!!

    I'll make sure and remedy that for Haleigh's Ink. :)

  12. I think I would die of embarrassment if the guy(s) I was crushing on found a diary with all my most smutty fantasies. I would just pray that the Earth would open and swallow me up, lol.

  14. I would also be mortified....but it sounds like she gets a very happy ending! LOL.
