Archive for Reserved for Him

Good News….



Okay…I finished Reserved for Him last night, and subbed it today. Yay! Another story crossed off my list. Also, I finished and subbed Threadbare Gypsy Souls. Threadbare will be out April 7th. Along with two other stories for sure, and maybe one more. 🙂 So April there will be an abundance of T.A. Chase stories coming out.

One will be a re-release with nothing new added, just a different cover, so you can skip it if you want…lol.

I’ll be starting the project I’m working on with Devon Rhodes, and also Home Sweet Home will be started today. Woot!

Sorry I was late posting this. I’ve been staying at my mother’s this week to help her during her recovery from knee surgery. She’s been doing really good, so I’m going home tonight. Unfortunately, I have a funeral to go to tomorrow. 🙁 But she has a bunch of friends just chomping at the bit to come and help her…lol. So I don’t have to worry about her being by herself.

I hope you all have a great day.

Wednesday Work in Progress…



All right. So I’m only about 4-5k away from finishing Reserved for Him. I’m sure it’ll be done today and submitted. Yay! Then I’ll be starting Home Sweet Home, and India. Oh, and my GRL story. 🙂 But hey, at least I can cross one more story off my list.

Today, I thought I’d share an excerpt from Reserved for Him. This is the only peek at it you get…lol…since it’ll be done today.

I hope you all have a great day, and enjoy the glimpse of Ion and Adrien.

He rubbed his sweaty palms on his pants, then checked his reflection in the mirror by the door one last time. Ion opened the door with a smile, but his jaw almost hit the floor when he saw Adrien standing in front of him.

Seeing the man in suits all day at the office had told Ion Adrien had a sense of style and loved tailored clothing. Obviously Adrien stepped it up a notch when it came to going out on a date. The dark blue silky dress shirt he wore clung to him like a second skin. Adrien’s black slacks emphasised his muscled thighs, and Ion couldn’t wait to see what it did to Adrien’s backside. The man oozed sex and charisma from every pore.

“I’m going to have to fight everyone off you with a stick,” Ion mumbled.

After Adrien strolled in, he swept Ion into his arms and kissed him. Ion forgot every worry and nervous thought he might have had as soon as Adrien’s lips touched his. He buried his fingers in Adrien’s hair, holding tight while Adrien overwhelmed him.

The only thought in Ion’s brain was how soon could he get Adrien into his bed, and was he hungry enough for food to leave his apartment. It wasn’t until his lungs burnt from lack of oxygen that he decided to take a step back.

Adrien didn’t let him break their embrace. He rested his forehead against Ion’s, and they slowed their breathing together.

“I want you, Ion. More than I’ve ever wanted another man before, and that’s saying something.”

A small jolt of jealousy hit Ion, but he knew it was stupid to feel that way. Adrien was a mature male with money and power. Of course, he was going to have a lot of lovers before Ion. A tiny voice in Ion’s head said that he wouldn’t be having any other lovers after Ion if Ion had any say in it.

“I want you as well, Adrien,” Ion admitted, not seeing the harm in confessing the obvious.

Adrien took a step back, leaving his hands at Ion’s hips. “But I want us to have dinner together, and get to know each other better before we jump into bed. I think we’re looking for the same thing here, and it isn’t a quick roll in the hay.”

Ion shook his head. “It might seem odd, because I’m not that old, but I’m tired of the club scene and hook-ups. Maybe it’s because I have big plans for myself, and it doesn’t seem like a lot of the guys I run into are interested in that.”

“Maybe you just needed an older man to see the possibilities with you.” Adrien dove in for a quick peck, then he gestured towards the door. “We should be going. Our reservations are for eight o’clock and we don’t want to be late.”

Ion grabbed his jacket, and all the rest of his things.

Tuesday….a little better



Okay…so I finished Leaving Home yesterday. Got that into my editor, and we’ll be starting edits on it very soon. As soon as it comes up for pre-order/VIP sales, I’ll let everyone know. 🙂

I also did the last set of edits on Where the Devil Dances and Dreaming of Dragons, and got them to their respective editors as well. I started working on Reserved for Him, a short story for a TeB anthology. I’m hoping to get it done in the next couple of days. I’ll be starting Home Sweet Home (Yancey/Juan) and a project I’m working on with Devon Rhodes tentatively titled India (just until we get the okay to use the title we want…lol) Oh, and my short story for the newest GRL anthology needs to be done soon as well.

As you can see I have a lot on my plate, but I’m hoping to get some of them done quicker than others. The two short stories should be easy to whip out, if I don’t go crazy first from the pressure…lol

I hope you all have a great Tuesday.

Four Days until Christmas…


Where has this year and this month gone? I can’t believe it’s already almost Christmas. Crazy. But at least we all survived the end of the world….unless that happens at noon or something…lol.

I wanted to let you all know that there will be a new installment for the blog story on Tuesday. So if you get a chance to sneak away from the Christmas/holiday celebrations, you can check it out. 🙂

Still working on Leaving Home and Reserved for Him, but I’m making progress. Hopefully I’ll be able to get what I need written over the next couple of days.

Have a happy and safe Winter Solstice, everyone.

Wednesday WIP


First order of business…All Romance Ebooks is having a Christmas give-away. They’ve been giving away books for free and my book, Pestilence, is free today and tomorrow. If you haven’t picked it up yet, or if you know someone who might like it, but hasn’t been able to get it yet. Here’s the link.

Second of all, today’s WIP is titled Reserved for Him, one of the short stories I’m working on for next year. 🙂

Excerpt: (copyright c. 2012 T.A. Chase)

“I want you all to fucking think of a fucking solution.”

It was going to be one of those days, Ion though as he pushed his mail cart off the elevator onto the executive floor of Bellamy International.

“Why the fuck do I pay you bastards such fucking ridiculous salaries if you can’t come up with one fucking good idea?”

Ion winced before sending Patrick, his best friend and Mr. Adrien Bellamy’s executive assistant, a sympathetic grin. “Sounds like he’s in rare form today.”

“You have no idea. Bellamy’s been like this all morning.”

Adrien Bellamy was the CEO and President of Bellamy International, a multi-national company that acquired failing businesses and tried to make them successful again. Well, it was just one branch of the business. Bellamy International had its fingers in several different pies, which suited Ion just fine. He might only be working in the mailroom right now, but he planned on making his way up the corporate ladder to a trouble shooting position some day.

Ion was ambitious, and it was his drive to succeed that brought him to the company. Bellamy International was one of the top 100 businesses in the world. What better place for a young businessman to work at?

“All your ideas are shit. I won’t lay off a thousand workers simply because the men in charge were fucking greedy crooks. You have to find me a solution that doesn’t result in people losing their jobs.”

Ion knew better than to ask why Mr Bellamy was furious. Patrick couldn’t tell him since being the head man’s minion meant he came across a lot of sensitive material, and it meant Patrick’s job if he were to share any of it, even with another person in the company.

After handing Patrick mail, Ion checked his list to see whom else he had to deliver to.

“They’re all in the conference room. Have been since this morning when I got here. Bellamy called a meeting of all the execs.” Patrick sifted through the large pile of envelopes Ion had given him.

“Why aren’t you in there taking notes or whatever he has you do during meetings?”

Patrick shrugged. “Not sure. I sent him a text to see if he needed me for anything. He told me to cancel the rest of his meetings for the day, and work on something else.”

They both jumped when a loud crash resounded from the conference room. Ion straightened from where he’d been resting his hip against Patrick’s desk. The door flew open and ricocheted back after hitting the wall with force. He and Patrick watched in amazement as Mr Richardson, the CFO, dragged Mr Bellamy out of the room.

“God damn it, Sidney. Why the fuck do I have them here if they can’t figure out one fucking solution? Monkeys are more intelligent than that group.” Mr Bellamy yanked his arm out of Mr Richardson’s grip. He started to pace the length of Patrick’s office area.

Ion had left his cart next to the elevator, and he found he was happy about that because his boss would’ve tripped over it. It paid to stay out of the way when Mr Bellamy was angry. After pressing into a corner, he hoped no one would notice him.

“They’re fucking morons.” Mr Bellamy ran his fingers through his hair.

“Patrick, can you call the cleaning crew and get someone to come up here. There’s a mess in the conference room.” Richardson seemed calm, bet then he always did. Ion had never seen the CFO lose his cool in the three years Ion had worked for the company.

Mr Bellamy was the complete opposite. He lost his temper at least once a week, usually at Patrick, then later that night, Ion would get an earful about what a prick Bellamy was.

Start of another week..

Last Friday was a dark day for everyone. How could it not be with the lost of children? It’s bad enough when adults are randomly murdered, but when it’s children and at a school, the horror seems to be doubled.

My thoughts go out to all the families who will be burying loved ones this week. It shouldn’t have happened, and you shouldn’t have to do this, not the week before Christmas. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as well.

I’ve been doing well with Leaving Home. It’s rolling along, and I’m hoping I’ll hit my deadline of turning it in on Jan. 1st. I have 8 1/2 chapters left to write, plus adding all the sex scenes in as well…lol. Maybe if I can get it done earlier, I can work on Reserved for Him. That needs to be done by Feb. 1st, but I have another short story and the Home book to do as well. Crazy.

Total e-Bound is having a 12 days of Christmas contest. Each day will be a new prize with a new winner. 🙂 Check it out here. Sounds like fun.

And if you’re a VIP at Total e-Bound, and wanted the single release of Ninja Cupcakes (if for no other reason then the awesome cover…lol) it’s available for download now. But only for VIPs. 🙂

Oh…and Best has been nominated as best Anthology of the Year at Goodreads. Here’s the link. You don’t have to be a member to vote. Also, my Home series has been nominated for Favorite all Time M/M series. Les and Randy have been nominated for Favorite All Time M/M Couple. And Cindi from Embrace My Reflection/Bring Him Gold has been nominated for Best Secondary Character.  If you’re so inclined, please go and vote. (Vote for your favorites, even if it’s not me. I can handle it…lol)

Well, I’m going to dive into writing and I hope you all have a good day.

Friday Hunk


Well, it’s Friday…another work week done. Leaving Home is flowing pretty good and I’m happy with how it’s going. 🙂 Need to do some work on Reserved for Him soon though. Since it’s a short story (15,000 at the most), it shouldn’t take too long for me to write. Four good days of writing, I hope.

I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. I’m going to be writing, and going to see The Hobbit. Woot! Can’t wait for that.

Two for One is available now…



My Sexy Snax, Two for One, is out now at Total e-Bound. Click here to check it out. This one had been available in the anthology Three that Liquid Silver Books released. I did add a little to this one to make it slightly longer.


When Jack receives a Two for One offer at a local club, he doesn’t realise the two men would change his life.

Jack Samson moves to Sumerset to start over again. He’s looking forward to his new veterinary practice and maybe having some fun once in a while. He certainly isn’t looking to fall for two men.

Simon Wittman and Brady Vanderly have been partners for fifteen years. They love each other, but they like to play. When they pick Jack up at a local gay bar, they think they’re just looking for a night or two of fun. They end up finding so much more.

Reader Advisory: This book was previously released at another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Total-E-Bound.


I’m working on Leaving Home, Peter’s story. Got the first chapter done over the weekend. Plus I’m working on a short story titled Reserved for Him, and got a little bit done on it as well. So I’ll be writing today on those two stories, plus the blog installment.

Have a great Monday.


End of the month already?

I’ll be sharing a new cover next Monday. 🙂 Yay!

Well, I have to fill in the middle part of my steampunk story, and I’m hoping to get it done today, but I’m not sure if I can. If not, I’ll have to ask for an extension…just a short As soon as The Whore of New Slum is done, I’ll be starting the next Home book-Leaving Home (Peter’s story) and a short story titled Reserved for Him. The short story goes to Total e-Bound as well. So I have a bunch of new stories coming out next year at TeB as well as a few old stories being re-released.

I hope you all have a great weekend. 🙂 I’ll be writing my fingers to the bone. (Not really, but I’ll be writing as much as possible…lol)
