Old crimes, new devils

To some men, peril is a turn-on.

What is it about danger that arouses these men? This time around, bigger-than-life Scot Rory Drummond and smoke-eyed cop Alex Dominguez find more than enough to keep them aroused.

When Rory and Alex find their ideal getaway—a remote aerie in the Highlands—they also find a few devils have poked leathery wings into their heaven in the form of kidnapping, extortion, and murder most foul.

On the trail of a missing man, they find a Jacobite tower hiding clues to recent violence…a 300-year-old elbow of the devil…and a graveyard whose crumbling bones cover old secrets worth killing for.

From Chapter 12: Both men are upset to find traces of violence to a family friend...and they take their anger and anguish out on each other.

Their kiss was savage. Alex seized his lower lip and bit, hard, while gripping his hair at the scalp. Surprised, Rory grabbed his wrists; but his lover, wild and struggling, would not let go. Dropping to his knees, he sank onto the sleeping bag, bringing Alex down with him.

You want blood, lad? I’ll give you blood.

Seizing his upper arms, he forced the struggling man onto his stomach and sat on him. Panting and cursing, he leaned over Alex’s back and sank his teeth into the muscle mass over his shoulder blade while holding the straining butt cheeks in the vise of his thighs.


He moaned with the pleasure of the coppery tang in his mouth and the guttural shout from the one underneath him, astonished at the weight of his erection, loving the fierce tight urgency of his own balls, ready to explode all over the man’s goddamn back.

“I swear my cock will rip your ass in two, Alex. Stop fighting me.”

Alex’s buttocks stopped bucking. Off guard, he leaned down to tongue the asshole. Alex exploded in a cyclone of cursing, rearing, trying to roll over, failing, cursing more.

Chíngate! Fuck you, leave me alone!” He was sobbing, shouting, feral in his anger…so irresistible Rory almost shot cum before his cock could find a hot home inside his ass.

And when he found the hole, he rammed. Hard. Relentless, angry now too, he laughed and wept at the same time.

“Fuck you too, corazón, you bastard, you fucking hot-ass, fuck you all the way to your goddamn tailbone.”

They both came in a hoarse, wordless torrent of bloody spit and cum.

After a very long time, he heard Alex mutter, “Your father will kill us both when he sees this sleeping bag.”

“I love you too, Alejo. Get some sleep.”

5.0 out of 5 stars: A grand ride like no other

An adventure that keeps you going, ninety to nothing and then gives you more. The characters and the scenes are so well done. You feel the Scottish breezes and smell the heather and you are lost in the gloaming. Alex and Rory are superb and Erin O'Quinn does a beautiful job of bringing everything to life. You'll love the adventure, the intrigue and of course, you'll love Thistle.

This is an EXCELLENT addition to a WONDERFUL Series (The Nevada Highlander Series). Make sure you read them all and, as the characters say "Gang Warily". You'll be so glad you did!!

About the Author

Erin O'Quinn was born almost literally on the side of a mountain in Nevada and was hauled kicking and screaming into the nearest town, fifty miles away, to attend first grade. To this day, she claims to be kindergarten-deprived.

O'Quinn earned a few degrees from the University of So. California, but her real education began on the back docks of the Las Vegas (NV) Review-Journal newspaper; on the good-old-boy car lots in Abilene, TX where she sold new Chryslers and used cars; and in a big-box store in Austin, TX where she alternately hauled pallets and ran a garden center.

You'll find a lot of action-adventure, and a character-centered, plot-centered group of seven series and a few stand-alones

Of 46 published works for adults, 33 (I think) are in the gay lit (M/M) genre. From the Noble Dimensions series (small town/contemporary) to Old World Ireland, Jacobite-era  and modern Scotland; and back to the retro world of Ireland in the Roaring 20s, she says, "My men, and my settings, are no-frills, no hearts and flowers. But I think a certain nobility and even spiritual element often creep in among the honest sexual feelings."

Any reviews you see are unsolicited, and are always welcome.

Settle back, enjoy what Erin O'Quinn calls "literotica with a flare for the unusual...thoughtful and with passions too big for their britches."
