Reinventing Us

Reinventing Us - Ann Lister - Rock Gods

by Ann Lister

Published:

Genre:

Alex-Zander Metcalf knew his life would always be filled with twists and turns, especially living in the public eye while playing the role of front man for his band Ivory Tower. That's what made life interesting and he loved every aspect about his job in the music world.

Living in a long-term polyamorous relationship with a husband and a wife also created a fair amount of ups and downs. Add two rambunctious daughters to the house and you had a sweet cocktail of chaos and pure joy and the unexpected awaiting him every day. His life was overflowing, but he wouldn't have changed a thing, because it was damn near perfect.

He knew nothing in life was guaranteed and never to take things for granted, but that didn't have him anymore prepared for what he was facing now. With his life completely upside down, Alex wasn't sure how he'd ever be able to move forward. But life as he knew it was gone, and it was up to him to dig deep and find a way through the fog with the only remaining “constant” in his life: Chase.

How do you find a new path when you feel so lost you can't see the road ahead of you through the unrelenting darkness? Where do you even begin such a journey, when the landscape is so vastly different from what was once familiar, and the resentment you have for needing to start over tastes like acrid bitterness on your tongue?

Alex must find the strength to push on and find a way to reinvent himself and all the relationships in his life, but creating this new version of himself won't come easy.

Climbing The Longhorn

Climbing the Longhorn - Ann Lister - Illicit Heat

by Ann Lister

Published:

Genre:

It was on the suggestion of Christian's therapist that he spend more time outdoors to enjoy the fresh air and get a little exercise in the process. His family and friends were constantly harping on him to do the same.

“Live a little and don't be afraid to take chances,” they said.

“Life's a journey best enjoyed with a healthy dose of adrenaline,” others said.

But their droning words of advice was exactly why he found himself walking around in circles—lost in the middle of an unfamiliar hiking park—east of Nowhere and a little south of Wherethehellami.

The only human he'd managed to see in the last three hours, the one person who could possibly point him in the direction of his car, was a gorgeous man who preferred to do his hiking … naked.

Who hiked around naked in the woods like that?

Derek did, and he was about to show Christian exactly why hiking naked was the only way to experience the sport.

In “Climbing The Longhorn,” Christian sets off for the hike of his life with Derek as his personal trail guide. Turns out, hiking naked up the Longhorn is just one of many erotic adventures Derek exposes him to that weekend, and the fresh air and exercise never felt so good.

The Illicit Heat Series is a brand new collection of short, erotic stories by Bestselling Author, Ann Lister. Each story in this series will be under 15,000 words and can be read as a stand-alone.

Strung Tight

Strung Tight - Ann Lister - Road to Rocktoberfest

by Ann Lister

Published:

Genre:

- Bisexual Discovery
- First Love
- Rockstar / Roadie
- Stage fright / Anxiety
- Low Angst / HEA

Strung Tight is the 1st book in the multi-author Road To Rocktoberfest series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not stay and enjoy the whole show? If you like scorching tales of hot rock stars and the men who love them, then you’ll adore the untamed musicians of Rocktoberfest!

What’s better than having your rock idol, Dagger Drummond be the mentor for your band? Having your band selected as one of the performing acts at the iconic music festival, Rocktoberfest.

My band was about to step onto our first professional stage. We’d more than earned our spot in the lineup. We had the talent and Dagger groomed our stage swagger. All that was left was to wow the socks off of the audience.

It should be easy, except I had major anxiety issues and it’s frowned upon when lead singers collapse on stage from panic attacks. Another detail adding to my anxiety level, I recently fell in love with a man. Imagine that, a straight guy falling for a dude. It’s the stuff stories are made of – and yet it’s my life.

Rocktoberfest was supposed to be fun but our trip turned sour when my guy went AWOL. Now my concentration is shot and my is heart heavy thinking his absence might have more to do with him not wanting to be with me than missing the bus. One way or another, I had to give the performance of my career – regardless of what was going on inside my head or my heart.

Bending For Him

Bending For Him - Ann Lister - Illicit Heat

by Ann Lister

Published:

Genre:

I’m known as Lace around campus at the performing arts college I attend because I use lacy ribbons sometimes in my dance routines. I’d like to believe I’m unforgettable because I’m highly skilled in many forms of performance art, but I have a feeling it also has something to do with what I can do with my body.

What do I mean?

I’m very . . . bendy – a contortionist of sorts, which comes from many years of training and being able to control every muscle in my body. I began as a kid doing classical ballet then moved on to more contemporary dance like swinging on poles and my favorite, aerial rope performance. My goal after I complete college is to join a major dance trope and share my fluid grace with audiences around the world.

The unexpected bonus to being this flexible?

I bring self-pleasuring to a whole new level – and I do – often.

My roommate, Brick learned this when he walked in on me the first day he stepped into our dorm room. Since then, I’ve been awakening things inside of him he hadn’t realized he craved – until me. Now we can’t keep our hands off of each other and we’ve created a whole new meaning behind pole dancing.

Bending For Him, is Book 5 in the Illicit Heat Series. This is an erotic tale of approximately 12k words, low angst, an HEA, and no cliffhangers. This and all the titles in the Illicit Heat Series can be read as stand-alones.

Switching Octaves - Ann Lister - Rock Gods

by Ann Lister

Published:

Genre:

Branson: I'm a guy who knows what he wants—whether it's a career goal or a man intriguing enough for me to give chase—once I have the prize in sight, I’m relentless in my pursuit.

This has worked well for me over the years, more specifically, as the bass player of my band, Hard Core. I hear a bass line in anything the guys throw at me, then take those jumbled run of notes and turn it into something our fans will want to buy.

I'm also a man who doesn't do messy or complicated, and I keep my emotions out of the game—until now. FDNY Lieutenant Sean Conley, one of New York's bravest, has ruined me for all others because I allowed myself to feel.

Conley: I’m dedicated to putting my own safety aside and saving lives on a daily basis. Just don't ask me to be part of a concert crowd or I'll inevitably have a massive panic attack.

Personal trauma pushed me into the closet and I was fine with this life—until rock star Branson Mink happened to cross my path at a fire scene. Worse yet, I think he knows what I'm hiding.

Branson's hardly the type to be anyone's secret. Every aspect of his life plays out under the spotlight, while I prefer to keep mine hidden behind that closet door.

I have always left parts of myself private, and now Branson has something to hide too. When our worst fears collide, I'm forced to put mine aside to save the man I love. Turns out, that was easy. The real challenge? Figuring out how to make this relationship work.
