Dared and Confused – cover and blurb

Dared and Confused by Adara O'Hare cover

Cover for my Love is an Open Road story, Dared and Confused.

Jackson Conroy and his friends have been playing “Truth or Dare?” together for years—long enough to know exactly how the game is going to go every time they get together, much to Jackson’s chagrin. As the group has gotten older and gone off to college, the games have become fewer and further between. Now with graduation looming just around the corner, the group decides to get together over their final Spring Break to play a few more rounds while they still can.

The game starts no differently than any other they’ve played for the past several years, but this time Jackson’s best friend takes an opportunity to corner him into kissing Chet Montgomery. Chet makes good on the dare to kiss Jackson without any hesitation. But it’s when the kiss ends that Jackson’s confusion begins.

Story tags: comtemporary, cowboys, college students, virgin sex, HFN, Southern U.S.A. colloquialisms (I cannot stress this one enough!), and a couple more I deem vaguely spoilerish, so I’m going to hold them back. =)

Working on a new story!

So, it’s that time of year again. (Actually, I’m rather behind on my posting about it.) I wasn’t sure if I was going to pick up a Don’t Read in the Closet: Love is an Open Road story this year, but one of them really spoke to me, so I did. I’ve been wanting to write a “Truth or Dare?” story for a few years anyway, and this gave me the perfect opportunity.

So, 15,000 words later, I have a rough draft of Dared and Confused. Here is the original request letter:

Dear Author,

It started with too many shots of Jack and a game of Truth or Dare. It was only supposed to be a quick kiss. I’ve never kissed another guy before. So why did I find myself back in his arms, lost in his brown eyes the next night? And why does the thought of never kissing him again make me feel like I would be missing out on the hottest thing in my life?

Please give these hot country boys their story.

I would prefer a contemporary story, no fantasy or paranormal. Hot sexy times would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,


I’ll share the blurb and cover soon.

Budding Love nominations

I know I’m not great about the whole blogging thing, but I need to put out some thank yous.

It’s time for the GoodReads M/M Romance Group’s Members’ Choice Awards again, and Budding Love has been nominated for two categories this year: Best Polyamorous and Best Story that Should Have a Sequel. (And I AM working on the continuation of the story for NaNo. It’s not going as quickly as I wanted due to other obligations, but I AM working on it as much as I can.)

I’m fully aware that I don’t have a prayer of winning either category because my story isn’t widely enough read to earn those sorts of votes, but in this case, it really is an honor just to be nominated, because that means that my story touched someone enough to think of it when awards nomination time rolled around.

So, really, thank you for the nominations!

More about my new story, Budding Love, which will be available soon.

Tags: aliens, shifters (non-wolf-cat), interspecies, virgin sex, tentacle sex, ménage, m-preg, sounding, bonded mates, betrayal, HFN

YOSHIDA Kazuo has less than a year of Intergalactic Trade School left before graduation, which is when his father expects him to take on a significantly bigger role in the family’s off-world export business. In fact, the whole of Kazuo’s life has been about his obligations to his father, never about what he wanted for himself. Anything alien absolutely fascinates Kazuo, but the majority of Kazuo’s alien education has come strictly from his studies.

To help Kazuo gain more business experience and contacts, his father requires him to attend an industry gala held by one of the most well-known extraterrestrial importers on Earth, a Sirynthalian known as Aethos. While Aethos is certainly a main attraction in attending the gala, Kazuo also remembers a past visit to the property’s enormous extraterrestrial greenhouse— a visit he’d like to repeat, as long as he can avoid touching the plants this time around.

As far as decisions go, leaving the party to look at the exotic flora seems to be a fairly harmless one to Kazuo. But a walk through the greenhouse becomes a life-altering event when Kazuo comes across an alien plant with a mind of its own, and a desire for Kazuo. Now Kazuo has a life-or-death decision to make. The question is: does he have all of the facts he needs to make it?

Coming Soon: Budding Love

•August 4, 2014 • Leave a Comment

So, it’s that time of year again. I’ve written a story for the Don’t Read in the Closet event, Love’s Landscapes. A little birdie told me that my story will be released soon! This one is my first foray into a futuristic Earth with some sci-fi elements.

And this year, I can’t post the picture because it’s very Not Safe For Work, so let me give you the description of it:

An illustration in the style of Japanese manga artwork features a young Asian male, nude from the waist down, blushing in embarrassment as thick green plant tentacles hold him aloft, binding his arms behind his back and spreading his legs wide. A wide tentacle protruding from the center of a large pink blossom penetrates his anus. Three smaller yellow tendrils, also from the center of the flower, reach toward his erect cock.

And here is the story prompt from C.M.:

Dear Author,

I can’t believe I let my cousin drag me to this party. He told me I was invited too, but that just can’t be right. This is the event of the year. Only the most important, wealthy, influential people are invited to attend, and I’m just a geeky little nobody…

So you can imagine how surprised I was when our names were checked off the list and we were ushered inside. Wow. This kind of thing really isn’t my style, but I have to admit that I’m impressed. But most of all, I’m intensely curious about our host. I’ve caught glimpses of him throughout the evening, mingling with all his well-to-do guests. But the chances of actually getting to meet him are pretty much nil. And now that I’ve seen him, that might not be such a bad thing. He’s not what most people would call handsome, but there’s something about him that’s pushing all my buttons. If I tried to talk to him, I’d probably just end up stammering and stuttering, and making a complete fool of myself.

That’s why, when my cousin made his move to join the crowd around our host, I decided to make my escape instead. Well, that and I was also bored to tears and intensely uncomfortable, standing around in my borrowed dress clothes, feeling like a complete outsider. So I decided to explore the grounds for a while, to kill the time.

HUGE mistake.

The big, beautiful greenhouse at the back of the property immediately caught my attention. The fact that it was locked? Pftt! No problem! I’ve got skills… which I’m now regretting. Why, you ask? Because this is what my nosey self has wandered into (see picture). Goddamned mutant alien plant, luring me in like a bee to honey with that enormous flower! This is not how I imagined my first time to be! How on earth am I going to get out of this? And did I just hear the sound of footsteps coming this way? I know I locked the door behind me, so who the hell is in here with me?

Someone who must have the key…

Oh… shit.

Please make his first time memorable and very pleasurable, dear author! Hot, erotic and very explicit is what I’m hoping for, with some strong, romantic overtones. (I don’t want straight-up porn/erotica). And it would be great if the host was to join in at some point, so we have a sexy threesome going on! In the picture he’s shocked, angry, and more than a little bit scared, but I’d like that to gradually change. But please do not include aphrodisiacs (from the plant or otherwise). I want him to enjoy what’s happening without any mind-altering drug/chemical coercion.

I love kinky sex content (obviously!), so whatever you want to include, in terms of kink, is fine by me! Just keep in mind that this is his first time, so anything too extreme would be a bit off-putting and very unrealistic, like massive penetration. But some sounding with the plant’s tendrils would be very hot!

I imagine this to be a futuristic setting, with a greenhouse full of strange, alien vegetation. The MC in the pic is Human, but maybe the host could be an alien species? (I do love interspecies pairings). But if you’d like to go with something different, that’s fine!

And please give this a HEA ending, or at least a strong HFN with the distinct impression that these two (or three? Haha!) are well on their way to having a romantic relationship.


I’ll post the cover, blurb, and tags in the next couple of days. =)
