Kit Mason works at Eddy’s, a boutique where the clothes are chic, the paycheck’s weak, and Kit has no qualms about snagging rich older men looking to pay for play. When Cory St. James walks in, he checks all Kit’s boxes: he’s middle-aged, the entrepreneur of a pharmaceutical company, and already has a kept boy at home—what’s one more? Kit sets out to seduce Cory and bulldozes through his denials, but when Cory finally gives in, his lover, Sasha, catches them with their pants down.
Sasha isn’t the pampered toy Kit expected. In fact, Kit may have misjudged him. And the consequences that ensue when Sasha catches Kit and Cory together leave him alone. Unwilling to be weighed down by guilt, Kit decides to look after Sasha himself, even if Sasha can’t stand the sight of him and there are a few things about Kit's past he doesn't want Sasha to know. But Kit isn't willing to do all the work when it comes to forcing Sasha to rebuild his life. It’s a slow process of growing trust and learning to stand on their own—and together.
One of my doggys, a stray, but still mine, has distemper.
A few dogs in our area died from it but my ones at home are vaccinated.
So took her to the vet and kept here there.
I thought she was improving despite the crusty eyes (she can barely see), but today, I went to get her out of the cage for her IV, lifted her under the rib cage, and she started this god awful hacking cough.
So I joined the Dreamspinner author yahoo group to get to know the other authors. I know, my book won’t be coming out for a bit but I thought … why not. I knida figured Dreamspinner is like the Mills & Boon for gay romance.
They are a nice bunch ... overall but
I never realized there was a huge deal about reviews.
All the other authors seem to do Free book giveaways, visiting blogs, moan about reviews, pay people for reviews … reviews, do reviews for each other …
Did I mention reviews and sales?
Oh, man, it’s like I should get started even though my book hasn’t even reached editing.
Since I'm handle a lot of strays, I get calls from all sorts of people about unmentionable animal related accidents.
Yesterday a lady called me about a dog with a circular wound around the neck, with something still in it. I thought, naturally, snare. People set snares for wildlife and when they catch a household pet, they generally let it go but don't bother taking the metal wire from around it. (I've amputated a couple of legs--paws...but anyway...)
Got the dog tranked-- turned out someone had put an arm band around the dog and the rubber had cut into the flesh. And there were maggots. Got it off, cleaned it, gave it a shot of antibiotic and let it go. It's a stray and there is no where we can keep him at the moment.
Need to go back and check on it.
So... here's to all the nice people out there...
BTW, the cat with the rubber band around the tail -- had to amputate tail. IT had four kittens. Now how to convince owner to get it spayed-- they told me spaying an animal is a grave sin.
1) Why do people stop in the middle of the battle to analysis each others' weaknesses and battle strategies. Can't they think about it rather than standing there give a list-- "I think you've shield arm is a tentacle and work on that footwork by stomping ants." Sometimes they just TALK about fighiting which seems pointless.
2) Why do fighting characters have out of topic conversation in the middle of fights. It gets annoying -- not funny. "Ants you say-- my mom used to make them for breakfast. Here, let me write down the recipe.
3) Why do team members act as if they have never heard of basic first air when someone is bleeding to death. I could understand the first time or the second but if your lifestyle is that of a fighter, a killer or a something equally bloodthirsty, you might as well learn to patch up some holes.
"I say, he's bleeding a lot isn't he, let all sit here and watch. Bandages (??) what are those-- lets mummy wrap the guy two episodes later"
4. Why is there a lack of intelligent main characters. I know even heroes need to have a weakness, stupidity shouldn't be one of his weaknesses. I liked L in Deathnote until he got a god complex and things went so bad it was spectacular. Annoyingly, the stupid hero with all the intelligence of a salad leaf always manages to beat the crap out of the intelligent but wicked villain?
