Book Name: Endings and Beginnings
Series: Collars & Cuffs

Release Date: July 18, 2016
In all his relationships, Darren Fielding never found the level of intimacy he witnessed between Thomas Williams and his sub, Peter, the day of Peter’s “rebirth.” Not only that, he never realized such intimacy was possible. For two years, Thomas’s business card has been burning a hole in his wallet. When Darren’s lover moves on, maybe it’s finally time to see where that card takes him.
Collars & Cuffs’s new barman, JJ Taylor, is really conflicted right now. He went to the club with a very specific purpose, already convinced of what he’d find there. Except it’s not what he expected at all. He certainly didn’t anticipate finding himself drawn to the new wannabe Dom. Nor could he have guessed the direction that attraction would lead him.
Old love, new love, vows, pain, rage, moving in, moving on…. The members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that touches some of them deeply, but it will only reinforce what they already know: together they are stronger, and some bonds cannot be broken.

- What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Surviving Curtis Rogers with some semblance of a mind still intact. I thank whatever powers that be that Master Thomas saved me and gave me reason to live again.
- If you could have any job or profession, what would it be?
I wouldn’t. My passion is taking care of my Master. That’s where my happiness is. Seeing his face when he comes home at night to find me waiting for him, a cup of tea on the table by his favorite chair, and me kneeling there, awaiting his touch? That’s the life I want for myself.
If I did want a job, I know that Master Thomas would move heaven and earth to help me get it. He’s an absolutely amazing man, and my well-being is his primary concern.
- What is your biggest regret?
Saying yes to Curtis. If I hadn’t been so eager to explore submission, I might not have gotten into the mess I did, and I wouldn’t have a lifetime of reminders etched on my back.
- What is your favorite food?
Don’t laugh, okay? It’s freshly baked bread. When I first came to be with Master Thomas, I wanted to try and make some. Alex was there, he…um…helped me make it.
I’ve gotten better after that initial attempt, but even today the smell of fresh baked bread brings to mind a time when I never thought I’d be normal again.
- Who is your hero?
Okay, so I know you’re probably thinking I’m going to say Master Thomas, and for the most part he is, but he’s more than a hero. He’s my reason for getting up every day and feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin.
My heroes, though, would have to be Steven Drummond and his sub David. They risked everything to get me away from Curtis and bring me to my new life. Curtis is a very sick man. He’d already killed once, so what would have stopped him from killing Master Steven or David?
“Honey, I’m home.”
Alex laughed and came out of the kitchen to greet his husband. “We’ve talked about this, right? You do not walk into this apartment and talk to me like I’m the little wife.”
Leo kissed him soundly on the cheek. “Aw, but you’d look great in an apron, holding a glass of beer out for your weary, hard-working hubby.” He smirked. “And besides, no one in their right mind would call you little.”
Alex quirked his eyebrows. “One, you don’t drink beer, which is why there’s a glass of chilled chardonnay on the living room table, waiting for you. Two, excuse me—weary? Hard-working? You’ve been standing around in leather chaps and a harness, watching while guys do all manner of things to each other, which probably included a lot of fucking, because, hey, it’s Saturday night, right?”
Leo sighed happily. “What can I say? I love my job.”

Meet K.C. Wells:
Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

Meet Parker Williams (or at least his voices):
Good day! We are the voices that live inside Will’s head. The ones who whisper to him constantly, beckoning him to speak of our adventures, to tell of our love, and perhaps, if we’re in a mood, kill a person or two.
We guide his hand as he tells our tales where love is the most powerful force, but must be worked for, molded, and finally, embraced. There can be no shortcuts or substitutions on the path to a happily ever after.
We hope you will join with us as Will fulfills his obligation to ensure our stories are told and, we hope, enjoyed.

Tour Dates & Stops:
It’s truly an Endings and Beginnings book. Some shadows from the past emerge and die (and I’m still mad at Parker for not telling me who dies!). Other figures come to light and bring some kind of closure. We see all the characters from the previous books again, and it’s like a last goodbye to them. They’re all happy and in love now, and where Eli and Jarod start a new journey, the way of all the other couples ends in happiness. It makes me sad and happy at the same time.
I dreaded the end of the book, knowing there won’t be more, but realizing the series needed an end. I wasn’t disappointed at all.
