New Cover…

MLR Press is re-releasing Bastet on May 17th. There’s a new cover, but the content is the same. They will be releasing Anubis as well, which as you all know was a blog story, but never got released at Amber Allure. I’m happy they took this series.I thought I’d share the cover. I hope you like it.


Also, Pride Publishing is re-releasing Hearts on the Line. There isn’t any new content with this one either, but a yummy new cover. 🙂 This one will be available in June. I’ll give you the exact dates soon.


Hope you all have a great day.

I wanted to let you know (if you’re interested) that Hearts on the Line is available in print at Amazon. 🙂 Click here to check it out.




Also, Burning Up the Ice is available in print as well. Click here to check this one out. (I have to say I love the white cover on this book. It really stands out on my bookshelf.)

Oh and in case you didn’t know….




Close the Distance is available for early download. This is the second book in the Rags to Riches series and picks up right where Remove the Empty Spaces left off. Click here to check it out.




And Serving Love at Carnival is available for early download as well. 🙂 Click here to check this one out.


Okay…so I signed the contracts for Saint Petersburg and a special project that as soon as I know I can say something I will. I have to double check to find out if it’s top secret until the publisher reveals it, or if I can say anything…lol. Don’t want to get into trouble, but I think you’ll like it.


Well, that’s all the news that fits to print today. I hope you all have a great Wednesday. 🙂

Now Available….




Hearts on the Line is now available at Amber Allure. Check it out here. I did add an epilogue/chapter to it, so you know how the boys are doing in Mexico. 🙂

On today’s schedule I have: writing the next installment of Bodyguards, work on Losing and A Grand Prix Romance. So a full day of writing is ahead for me.




In case anyone is interested, Close the Distance is up for pre-order now. Check it out here.




As is Serving Love at Carnival. Check it out here.

I hope you all have a great day.

New Cover….




This is the cover for Hearts on the Line coming from Amber Allure on Feb 23rd. 🙂 The print version will be out a few weeks after the ebook one. I found the picture and Trace was nice enough to use the one I wanted. I thought it had just the right amount of military feel to it. 🙂

I should be receiving the cover for Burning Up the Ice soon as well. We just got our Final Line Edits for that and we’ll be going through those today. Yay!

I’ve been working on Brazil and London, and moving right along on both of them. Since it’s still snowing here and the wind chill is supposed to be some crazy below zero number, I think I’m just going to stay inside and continue to write. The cold is a good way to stay focused. lol

I hope you all are safe and warm.

Wednesday Work in Progress-NSFW




You all might recognize these two. One of the stories I’m working on at the moment is Hearts on the Line. I’m adding three more chapters to the end, so they can get to Mexico and have a good life. 🙂 Hopefully…lol.

But I thought I’d share with you a little snippet of what I’m adding.

Hearts on the Line copyright 2013 T.A. Chase


After three hours of solid planning, he sent Synder and Fanco out to guard the perimeter, and told the others to grab some shuteye. The watches would be for four-hour shifts, then they would switch off. They would stay at the house for one more day and night, then leave at sunrise the third day.

Unfortunately, traveling at night would get them noticed a lot sooner so close to the DMZ than by day, and Addison wanted to go as long as possible before any of the UEA figured out they had AFF deserters in their midst. He was willing to take the risk of being spotted in the daylight.

“I’m going to rest.” Addison stood, and poked Baxter in the shoulder. “Why don’t you come with me?”

Baxter headed out of the kitchen as Addison looked over at Markeo, who just winked at him while making a shooing motion. Thank God, his men were open-minded enough to accept what was going on between Baxter and him. Of course, Addison admitted to himself, that ultimately it didn’t matter what they thought. He would love Baxter even in the face of any opposition.

He stared at Baxter’s back as they climbed the stairs to the second floor, where they took the room at the front of the house. The children were in the back, closer to the stairs and easier escape in case someone attacked the house. As far as he and his men were concerned, the children were more important than their lives.

He stripped off his gear, piling it close to the door, but keeping his rifle with him. Baxter did the same, putting his equipment with his. Addison didn’t give Baxter a chance. He tackled the man onto the bed, and smiled as Baxter’s surprised laughter burst out.

They wrestled until Addison had Baxter pinned to the mattress. He settled between the man’s legs, then rocked his groin into Baxter’s.

“Oh God,” Baxter groaned, pushing back against Addison. “Can we fuck, sir?”

Addison nuzzled along Baxter’s jaw, then nipped his chin. “What did I tell you about calling me sir?”

“Sorry.” He didn’t sound sorry.

“Yes, we’re going to fuck. I’m going to pound your ass because I want you so badly, my love.” He dove in to take Baxter’s mouth with determination.

While dueling with Baxter for control over the kiss, Addison started fumbling with the Velcro that kept his clothes on. He growled low in frustration at not being able to get Baxter naked as fast as he wanted.

He grunted when Baxter flexed, and he wound up on the bottom with Baxter straddling his hips. Before he could do anything about it, Baxter tore his shirt off and tossed it over his shoulder. Addison lifted his hands to run his fingers over Baxter’s muscular chest, but Baxter rolled off the bed to start taking off his pants.

“You need to get naked, Addison. If we’re going to fuck, I need you without clothes.”

“Fuck. You’re right.” Addison jumped to his feet and stripped, stumbling around when his pants got caught up on his boots. “Shit!”

Baxter chuckled while dropping to his knees. “Sit. I’ll get these off for you.”

He dropped to the edge of the bed, trailing his hands over Baxter’s board shoulders and caressing the outside shell of the man’s ears. Baxter shook his head, and Addison smiled. He slid his hands to rub his thumbs over Baxter’s flat copper colored nipples. Loving how they hardened beneath his touch, Addison pinched them, then added a little twist.

Hissing, Baxter yanked off Addison’s boots, then threw them out of the way. Addison spread his thighs as Baxter pushed into his personal space before dipping his head to suck Addison’s cock down.

“Holy fuck,” he swore as the head of his shaft hit the back of Baxter’s throat.

Baxter didn’t stop when Addison gripped his head and started thrusting into his mouth. Addison figured his lover would stop him if he got too rough, but he couldn’t help moving. The feel of Baxter’s tongue on his cock was something Addison would never forget, and something he wanted to feel again and again.

Wednesday’s Work in Progress…




First off, if you’re interested, I posted a snippet of the Tiffany book I’m working on over at my Tiffany blog. 🙂 Check it out here.

Second of all, this snippet I’m posting for you is from a story titled A Thin Line Between Love and Hate. It’s for a specific submission call from Amber Allure. When you see the cover for the story, you’ll understand the title better. 🙂 To be honest, I can’t wait to get the story written, just to be able to show the cover to everyone…lol. It’s going to be amazing. Plus I think I might see if I can’t get Kissed by the Gods and this story combined in one print book.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great Wednesday…and remember tomorrow is the last installment for Hearts. Then I’ll pull it down….add more to it and send it to Amber Allure. Hopefully for release later this year.

Here’s the excerpt:

A Thin Line Between Love and Hate copyright 2013 T.A. Chase

“We used to be friends,” Pauly whined.

Si nodded, but didn’t move away from where he stood next to the front door. It was the only exit out of the apartment, and Si wasn’t willing to lose that feeling of freedom. He needed to get his stuff and get out because the heroin was calling to him. He knew Pauly would have a bag or two hidden somewhere in the place.

His hands shook as want tore through him. Christ!  It’d been thirteen months since his last hit, yet the addiction clawed at his stomach and soul, demanding to be fed. An addict might go through rehab and get the drugs out of his system, but the craving was always there under the surface.

“How come we ain’t friends no more?” Pauly asked, his yellow-tinged gaze almost eating into Si’s resolve.

“I don’t shoot up any more, Pauly. Can’t stay clean while hanging out with the people who hooked me in the first place.”

The rehab place hadn’t taught him that. An ex-junkie who befriended him at NA-Narcotics Anonymous- had warned Si about the pitfalls of old friendships.

Pauly grunted as he staggered to his feet. Si dodged his grasping hand, knowing if Pauly touched him, he’d be sucked back into the love/hate relationship he had with H. Si snorted softly. Hell! All of his relationships were love/hate, even the one he had with himself.

Before Pauly could corner him, three women walked into the apartment. Jambrea, Lila, and Angela took in the scene.

“We got worried,” Jambrea informed him. “Do you need help?”

More than you’ll ever know. He simply nodded, then said, “Keep an eye on Pauly while I get my stuff.”

Pauly looked confused. “What stuff? I sold all your shit.”

“I figured, but I hid the important things before I went to jail.”

Lila glared at Pauly. “Don’t worry. We’ve got this.”

Knowing the girls could take care of themselves, Si headed toward the room that used to be his in that shithole apartment. He’d created a hiding place in the ceiling of his closet. It was where he’d stashed the only two things it would’ve hurt to lose. After prying the tile out, he slid his hand into the hole, praying no one had found it. He breathed easier when his hand encountered a piece of fabric.

Si pulled the items from the ceiling, then without looking at it, he left. He gathered the ladies with a glance, and they walked out of the apartment. He didn’t look back, not even when Pauly called his name. Pauly and that apartment were things of the past.

“You can’t get clean if you’re always looking back,” Kip, the ex-junkie, had told him.

Si remembered the night Kip had told him that. Need for H had been riding him hard, and when Kip had called to ask him to meet for coffee, Si had jumped at the chance. By the time the sun rose, and it was time to go their separate ways, Kip had talked Si down. Si had gotten the desire to shoot up under control.

That night had been the last time Si had seen Kip. The next day he was gone, and Si worried that Kip had fallen back into the same old habits and crowds that had strung Kip out, and nearly destroyed him in the process.





Great news! Always Ready is done and submitted. Now just comes the waiting part to see if they want it for their anthology or not. If not, I’ll either publish it with them as a stand-alone or see about sending it somewhere else. 🙂 I’m not worried about it. My guys will find a home somewhere…lol

So my M/F pen name has a website now. Please stop by and check it out, even if you don’t read M/F stories any more. 🙂  I plan on posting on that blog Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I don’t have time to post there any more than that…lol. Posting every weekday here, and trying to write takes up a lot of time.

Now I have to start on Fallen: New York, my 5th book in the Fallen series. It’s M/F….so if you want to know more about it, you can stop by Tiffany’s site. But I need to have it done by August 1st, so I’ll be writing like crazy on that. But I’ll also be working on Blindsided, the 4th book in the International Sports series, and Remove the Space Between Us (whose title will probably be shortened when I sub it…lol), the 1st book in my Rags to Riches series. That one is almost halfway done and needs to be turned in by Sept 1st.

I have books scheduled out through December of 2014 with Total e-Bound. Alternating TA and Tiffany books, but I’m sure there’ll be other stories snuck in around the main ones. Plus I’ll have books coming out at MLR Press and Amber Allure when I can. 🙂

I think I’m going to be wrapping Hearts on the Line up this week. Then I’ll work on adding more to it before I submit it to Amber Allure. Hearts is long enough, it’ll be released in print as well so that’s a bonus. I decided I’ll do that since it’s already been out in installments here. If I get a chance to write another serial for Total E-bound, it’ll be new and not something I’ve posted on my blog before.

Well, I have a lot of stuff to do, so I have to get cracking. Hope you all have a marvelous Monday.

Start of July….




Here’s the cover for Part Two of Every Shattered Dream. There is a difference between this one and the first cover. When you see them all together in a row, you’ll understand what the difference is. 🙂

I can’t believe today is the first of July. Where did the first six months of the year go?  lol I’m not sure if I want the next six months to fly by as fast. Crazy. 🙂

So today, I have three sets of edits and four interviews to do, plus start my next Fallen book, New York (Tiffany Aaron), finish up Always Ready, and do the next installment of Hearts for tomorrow. I’m hoping I can get them done today, but we’ll have to see…lol. I want the interviews done, Fallen started, and Hearts done by the time I go to bed tonight.

I hope you all have a great Monday. 🙂

The road to Hell….



are paved with good intentions. I truly intended to have the next installment for you all, but most of my day yesterday was spent at the car dealership, waiting for them to fix my car. After five hours waiting, they sent me home with a loaner because they couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it. Ugh! So that wasted most of my day when I could’ve been writing about Addison and Baxter….or doing edits on the books I need to get done as well.

Real life is turning out to be a huge time suck this week. I’m going to do my best to get the installments done, but it might not happen and I’m sorry about that. I hate not getting them up and posted for you when I say I will. 🙁 Please don’t give up on me if I don’t. They’ll be up next week for sure…or maybe this weekend depending on when I can eek out some time.

I hope you all have a great Tuesday…and I’m sorry again.

Sharp Dressed Man is available…




I realize this isn’t what you would like to see today on my blog. 🙂 Devon and I are one sex scene away from finishing At First Touch, because we worked on it all night until my wrist couldn’t take any more typing. So I wasn’t able to get Hearts done for you, but for those of you who haven’t heard my Mixed Tape story is out at MLR Press. Sharp Dressed Man is available and if you click here, you can check it out. It’s available as a single release or you can get six stories in Volume 1 of the Mixed Tape Collection.

It’s a short story about two guys who were best friends in high school, but neither of them would admit they loved the other. So at their 25th reunion, they run into each other and sparks fly. 🙂

I have to finish up Dream Part 5, and edits on my Tiffany Aaron book, Reno. But I will get you the next installment of Hearts on Tuesday, I promise. 🙂 I hope you all have a great weekend. I’ll be at Motor City Pride in Detroit on Saturday, if any of you are in the area. Come see me. 🙂
