Hey everyone, Our Author of the Month for February is M/M Romance Author Piper Kay. Piper is a homegrown country girl straight from the outskirts of Houston, Texas, USA.
She is a #1 International Best Selling author of LGBT Erotica, and an International Bestselling author of LGBT Erotica romance, gay romance, specifically in the male/male (m/m) erotica genre, and LGBT drama. Piper is bringing her passion of storytelling straight to the pages, most times served with a super-sized sprinkle of sexy, a slice of sarcasm and a carafe of crazy.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
About myself, hmmm… Well, I was born and raised in a little hick town just North of Houston and I still reside there. I’m also the mother of three children, two of which are legal age. I write in the M/M genre and love it there. I have a teenie, really teenie streak of sarcasm and a lot of Southern sass. It’s ashamed I’m too shy to show it though. lol
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
Trying to think here, put me on the spot. Hmmm…Age? Ah, no. Sex? I wish. This is hard…oh shut up already. ~whew!~ I’m pretty open about everything really. Okay, got it…I’m shy!
How do you relax?
Excuse me? I’m sorry could you repeat the question, I didn’t quite catch that? Hahahaha.
What is your favourite quote?
“No matter where you go, there you are.”
How long have you been writing and what made you fall in love with writing?
I’ve been writing since the end of 2009-beginning of 2010. As soon as I typed the first few pages, I knew it, totally fell in love with it. Writing was something I always wanted to do, but couldn’t because of work, my family, kids, etc. When I finally got the time have that time, it was such a release and an escape. So hard to describe, but it was like finding me all over again.
What are your ambitions for your writing career and what’s your favorite part of writing?
Even though I may or may not have complained about this a time or ten, my very favorite part of writing is when the boys in my head stand up and say “Hey Piper, we discussed this amongst ourselves and decided we’re going to take over now”. That’s when I love writing the most. Probably because even I am surprised at what they do. I get so lost in it, I even forget to eat and drink for a couple days. As for my ambitions as a writer, mine are to have my words help someone. They say words are powerful. I would love my words to be powerful enough to get through to someone, to reach just one person and leave them feeling comforted, like someone understood exactly what they were going through.
How did you feel when your first novel was accepted for publication?
Hahaha this is embarrassing, but I danced around the island bar in the middle of the kitchen and screamed. Then I started bawling like a 2 yr old. I think it all ended in shock and disbelief.
What scene in your writing has made you laugh the hardest or cry the most?
Sparky aka Serge, is the funny one. He is the one that has made me sore from laughing so hard. There are so many scenes in Passion’s Pride, book three of The Passion Series, where Sparky (it’s a nickname) that I don’t think I can pick just one. He’s the same way in Payce’s Passion where he is first introduced. He spots a female nurse flirting with his boyfriend, Ash. This happened (little teaser clip)
Sparky talking to Payce.
“Payce, look at the poor anorexic woman, she really is embarrassing herself by trying to drape all over my man.”
“Sparky, stop that. She’s not really doing anything, you’re just jealous.”
“Me jealous? Ha! Not me. I’m just a concerned citizen is all.” Payce arches his eyebrow and looks at me like I’m nuts. “I am, If she gets any closer to him, his breathe is liable to tip the poor bag of bones right over on that perky little ass of hers. Fake ass at that. I need to get closer, and find out how she opens her eyes with those lashes caked on like that.”
Payce laughs. “Are you done? Anything else?”
“Something about that tan is just not quite right, is it?”
“Well no, not really. Is that how spray on tan comes out? Maybe we should call her Pam, like the cooking spray, that grease you put on a pan before baking something.” He lets out a laugh.
“Oh no, she’s above and beyond Pam spray. That…that” I can’t stop laughing. “Sorry, but that flamboyant queenie looks like she’s been rolled in a bag of nacho cheese Doritos, Payce.”
Who are your favourite authors.
I have so many, too many to name, but my very favorite is Poppet. Great wordsmith and fun.
If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?
“It Only Happens To Me” because I tend to have so many random, off the wall things that happen to me, but no one else. It’s crazy, I swear.
Please tell us a little about your current release and what can we look forward to from you in the future?
Well my current/upcoming release is Passions Pride. The last book of the The Passion Series. It was due out January 17, but had to be postponed and should be releasing very soon . This is Sparky’s story. Originally, the character, who is a waiter, was only supposed to have a line that tightened up the story, but he jumped in with both feet. Sparky made me laugh so much I cried. He wouldn’t let anyone else have the spotlight. Sparky and Ash finally have a chance at their relationship, but it is constantly interrupted by some catastrophe and they just have to keep fighting or give up.
What to look forward to.
A lot, seriously. Hope I can pull it off. The one I just mentioned, Passions Pride, will come out very, very soon. As soon as I have the exact date, I’ll post it everywhere. There is already an ongoing event in place on Facebook. I’ll include the link, we have a blast. My story that was in the Hope and Love Charity Anthology for The MKE LGBT Community Center, is going to be releasing in March as a solo. Invicta: Redemption, Book 3, will be out and I will also be starting a new MC series towards the end of summer hopefully. In December I will have an update on the boys short come out so everyone can check in and see what the Men of the Passion Series are up too for the last year. Oh, and I have a surprise short coming, but for now it’s a secret. (not announced yet)
Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?
Absolutely the man on the cover, Jaxon Radoc. He’d be perfect, hell he was perfect for the cover, and he already has experience being on film. Lol
What is your favourite movie and why?
The Godfather and I have no clue why. It might, just might have something to do with a bunch of men spending all their nights’ together acting like bad boys, tough guys, but can turn that baditude off and form such a strong family unit with each other. Just sayin’.
Where can you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
I ask this question to people on my blog sometimes, and not once have I even thought about it for myself. I’m certain that I’ll still be writing wherever I am at and hopefully my life is peaceful and content there.
Is there anything you’d like to share with your readers?
Just to say that they rock and I appreciate them more than they know. They leave reviews, message me to let me know their feelings on a story, good and bad, plus it give me the opportunity to talk with them and get to know them too. I’m honestly very lucky to have them. I couldn’t be happier.
How can readers discover more about you and you work?
Anyone of the links works, or they can go to my website contact form to sign up for a newsletter I’m going to start having monthly.
Thanks so much for having me on this month, that means so much.

Title: Invicta: Salvation (Book One)
Genre: MM Erotica Romance
Publishing House: Hot Ink Press
Blurb: As Kaiden McKenzie and Holt Mitchell prepare to celebrate their fifteenth anniversary, and the grand opening of their new club, Invicta, they take a look back on how their lives together began. When Holt wakes up to an outraged father, he finds himself suddenly homeless and hungry. With the help and caring of a certain bad-boy, Holt finds life isn’t quite so bad as it seems. All he needed was the right man to guide him along. Kade has spent his life running from anyone and everyone who tries to get close, but when he meets up with Holt, he suddenly finds himself wishing for something more. Who knew he was someone’s knight in shining tattoos…
Excerpt: My man is one magnetic mother fucker. You would think he was a snake charmer playing the pungi, with the way he draws me straight into his trance. That delicate tongue slithering back and forth over those plump, red lips.
Slowly he glosses them in a coat of wet saliva, making them nice and slippery. So fucking inviting. Grinning, he bites down, pulling off an alluring suck, as he draws one side into his mouth, scraping it with his teeth. Lip-tease.
“I have something for you. Give me a second.” He shakes grins and leaves the room.
He walks back in, around the corner, in a blue jockstrap and matching bowtie. Fucking hot as hell in that ass -less get up, been a while since he did a private dance for me though. Hell my dick’s already getting hard. I arch one eyebrow, ready for this show. Standing to the side of the bed his hips start to sway and he trickles that tongue over his top lip this time. So good. I give him a half grin, and run my hand over the bulge that’s forming under the denim of my jeans. Holt’s all muscle to start with, but when he starts with those body rolls, rippling down from his chest to his waist and on to his knees, he nails it every time.
He always was the show stealer. Gorgeous, and he rocked out in all the right places, looking like a fuck god on stage, everyone wanted him. I was just determined.

Title: Payce’s Passion (Book Two)
Genre: MM Erotica Romance
Publishing House: Hot Ink Press
BLURB: It’s been seven years since Payce started his new life, and it was finally starting to feel comfortable…almost. But when his past catches up to him, Payce has to decide if he’s going to deal with the things he left behind, or if he’s going to keep running. When his friends, Damien and Dax need help, Payce is forced to confront the one person who knows him better than himself, Braxton and the one who made him lose everything he held dear, Aaron. Seeing them both could change everything for Payce. When past passions reignite, who will get burned in the end?
EXCERPT: I stop dead in my tracks, tired of trying to fight him. My cock needs him now, but my heart never left him. I jerk Braxton back to me, his body crushes into mine. It takes the strength of a fucking Titan to keep me from bending him over the nearest piece of furniture, right here and now. Fuck me! I’ve got to calm down.
Slowly, I reach for his waist with both hands and hold his hips, waiting to see if he’s going to rip away from me, saying this was all just a big mistake, punch me, or quit fighting too. Brax doesn’t move, instead he licks those pouty lips of his, first skimming across the top, then gliding over the lower. I damn near gnaw through my tongue, as he teases. I want him, and pray like hell, that I don’t burst the zipper of my jeans with the raging hard on that’s tightening behind the seams.
I can’t fucking take this, everything about him still drives me insane and I need to taste him, to feel him again. Brax yanks me into him and our hips smash together, automatically grinding slowly against each other. He’s driving me goddamned mad. I snake down this body, and lick my way back up him. His salty skin, mixed with cologne, tingles on my tongue. Shit, so much for staying calm.
“Still so fucking sexy, Braxton.” I press my leg between his and raise my knee, rubbing against his crotch. A hungry growl hums from his throat and escapes his lips, I crush my mouth against his to swallow it.
“Mmmm…and you feel like you missed me Payce,” he growls. That’s it. I take his mouth hostage, our tongues tango around each other, darting, pushing and pulling. Before I know it we’re in the middle of a fucking tongue bash and I love every bit of it.

Title: Passions Pride (Book Three)
Genre: MM Erotica Romance
Publishing House: Hot Ink Press
COMING SOON 2015
BLURB: Meet Serge and Ash. They’ve been happily in love for eight crazy busy months, but they click together. Most couples would be taking it to the next level at his point; something Ash is pushing for, but Sparky won’t budge. He’s keeping a secret from everyone, except his best friend, Payce, who doesn’t particularly care for Ash, and vice versa.
Payce thinks Ash is a spoiled little rich boy and the bee in his mothers’ bonnet. His parents pride and joy who puts himself above everyone, including Sparky, and Ash thinks Payce is an arrogant ex-con who only used Sparky to reach Braxton and he can’t be trusted, especially after hurting their boss years ago.
As Sparky prepares a celebratory dinner, Ash notices something is off. Sparky isn’t behaving like normal and Ash wants to call if off, but Serge won’t have it. He’s finally found a place where he belongs and he hopes it will help Ash with his own mommy and daddy issues. Sparky won’t let anything come before his home grown and hand-picked family. Dax, Damien, Payce and Braxton are family, just without the blood connection and they are worth the extra strength.
Just as Damien stands to make an announcement about himself and Dax, Sparky collapses. He’s rushed to the hospital and the doctor’s fight to figure out what is wrong with him.
The gloves come off as tension mounts, and hospital bills rise. Tempers begin to flare. It seems almost everyone has been keeping secrets – but too many secrets and too much pride can destroy even the strongest love. As Sparky and Ash dangle on the cliff edge of no return, will their selfish pride push them over, destroying everything they had or will they see that a passions pride is worth fighting for?
TEASER: Pushing Ash through the front doorway to my place, I spin my way around in front of him so he either has to stop or plow me over. Either way works for me. As long as it’s his warm body pressing firmly against mine, I’m a happy little stick of dynamite. Ash is my own personal vitamin pack. He’s exactly what my body craves and needs. He’s the nourishment that feeds me and God am I ever hungry. I missed him. It’s only been a few days, but it seems like weeks.
Kicking my leg behind his, I use my foot to close the door and shove him against it. “I was beginning to wonder if they were ever going to release me.” I reach out for the button on his jeans and with the flick of two fingers and a thumb, I have him unfastened in seconds.
Ash lets out a gasp, closing his eyes. That sultry, smoldering smile of his blisters across those plush lips and his arms slide up my side and around to my back. He jerks me in tight against him, holding me extra close. After several minutes, he releases me.
“You scared me, Mon petit voleur.” Ash runs his fingers through the back of my hair.
“Shhh…not now.” I press one finger against his pouty lips and glide my other inside his pants.
“Then when, Serge? You haven’t talked about this yet, and it’s important. This isn’t something to take lightly, not until we have all the results back.”
“When I’m not so distracted.” His zipper smoothly glides down.
“You are always distracted. Your distractions have distractions, so what’s one more?” He grins.
“My little pom-pom, you are seriously screwing with my expertise seducing skills right now, so knock it off before I get a complex. Unless you just don’t want me anymore, Ash.” I screw my face up into the biggest pouty face imaginable. I swear, if I push my bottom lip out any further, it’ll hit the ground. There! That’ll hush him up for a minute. “Because I sure want you.”
“Do you now?” Ash arches his eyebrow like he’s being serious, but that flirty smile gives him away every time.
When I told the nurse I needed my release, I wasn’t talking about the release papers.”
He grins. “No?”
“Not at all.” I wink at him.
With my help, his jeans slither over his hip bones, sliding down to his thighs. The heat from his body radiates a fire in me. I press my lips against him, curling my tongue around his. He kisses me back, slow, but hard and deep then pulls back bringing both our lips to a pucker. Oh God, he’s going to try to talk now, he isn’t giving up on that. Well I have other plans and today, it’s my way, period. I’m not asking, I’m just taking it and making it mine. Name it and claim it. I need him too much. Quite frankly, the whole ordeal scared the diddly squat out of me too, it still does, but I just can’t go there, especially now.
I tighten my grip and stroke him faster, sucking his mouth back to mine, not letting one peep escape from him. I said it’s my way today…and I meant it.
His dick hardens to full attention in my hand. Firm and tight, but his skin stays so silky soft that I feel the dorsal vein on the underside of his penis. Oh God. Feeling it makes me hard. I just want to lick my tongue up and down that thick, swollen vein.
Preoccupied with my own mind running wild, I barely notice when he pulls away from our kiss.
“Serge, I can’t believe you would ever think I didn’t want you. You know that I…”
Oh no you don’t Mister. Moving quickly, I drop to my knees. The sudden movement catches him mid-sentence and cuts him off. He’s speechless. Just call me Dick Butkus, no that’s not right. Night Train, yes. Night Train Lane coming through. Woot woot! I just totally intercepted that, thank you very much. If I wasn’t on my knees, I’d so do the funky chicken dance like I ran that baby all the way to the end zone.
