BALLS & CHAINS SERIES
The second in the Balls & Chains series was out last Friday. Here is a recap:
Welcome to Balls & Chains, a BDSM Club for gay men. Cross the threshold and see the worlds of humans and shifters collide as these alphas dominate, and betas submit.
Balls & Chains is an open series for Luminosity Publishing. Anyone can submit a story which comes to me as Series Coordinator.
The setting is a BDSM club for gay men called Balls & Chains (50% of the story must be in this club) and shifters also attend this club surreptitiously (so the club is mostly frequented by Humans who don’t know about shifters who keep their animal selves secret). It can be any dominant shifter (eg, Wolf, Bear, Lion etc). At least one of the main characters has to be a shifter. Word count 20-80k.
Book one: To Claim a Mate by Jennifer Denys
Cole Linley is a gay wolf-shifter. In order to appease the Alpha within, he has taken up the BDSM lifestyle and become very experienced. This placates his wolf to a certain extent, but his dearest wish is to find a mate—male, of course. Except, the question is, how to find one in a city surrounded by humans where other wolf-shifters are rare.
Then, one night, he enters Balls & Chains, a BDSM club he frequents, and immediately senses another of his kind. And not only that, it is the scent of a potential mate, Jared Gray. There is only one problem—Jared is collared by another Master.
Jared’s relationship shows all the signs of an abusive relationship. Can Cole get him away from the other Dom and show Jared the delights of BDSM when done properly and what it means to be a beta wolf to Cole’s Alpha?
Book two: Taming the Alpha by Amara Lebel
Past sins have forced Cadeon Rosseau into isolation, his pack turning against him and casting him out. Self-hatred and mutilation made him the male he is today. An alpha in his own right, he prowls the rooms at Balls & Chains in search of the one who will either save him from himself or break him completely. Jaded and alone, he finds it difficult to pull away from the self-made hell which has become his life, until a new submissive garners his attention…
Curiosity and a need for adventure lured Blake Copeland to the doors of the famous gay BDSM club. He craved distraction from his monotonous life and had been assured that he would find it there. Little did he know exactly how true that statement would be. Not only did Blake find what he was looking for, but he also left with a slightly unhinged mate in tow…
Will these two lone wolves find the strength to battle the obstacles in their path and build a future?
Full details including world building for the club and for wolf shifters (first two books were wolf shifters) can be found on Luminosity’s website – but if you decide to write another about another shifter species then you can make up your own world building which will be added to the database on the website.
