~* 5 Stars for Bound by Lies *~

“From the beginning it’s a complicated relationship that even though at times is frustrating and maddening, is also compellingly beautiful, emotionally heart stopping and off the charts HOT!!! Kinky fuckery that had me all of a tremble and totally in awe of Lynn Kellings ability to make the dynamics of their intense, no holds barred play, feel authentic and not just the formulaic ‘bdsm 101′ you generally find in m/m romance… I LOVED this book!” – Macky, Sinfully… Addicted to All Male Romance

Thank you so, so much to Macky, Monique & everyone at Sinfully… for all of their wonderful feedback on the Manse series books and for letting me stop by! I’m working remotely from the road right now with limited internet/computer access, so I’ll update with the exact link as soon I’m able.

Review Recap for Learning from the Master!

LearningFTMaster_CvrPDFI’m absolutely stunned by the fabulous reviews that have come in for Learning from the Master. Check them out…

~* 5 STARS from Sinfully… Addicted to All Male Romance *~

“I don’t know what Lynn Kelling was on when she wrote this novella, chocolate, wine, coffee or maybe some kind of aphrodisiac, ‘cause holy hotness, I might need to ship it out to her in crates because I want more! This book is HOT as frickin hell, but not in your face porny hot or sugary kink, it’s classy BDSM, a powerful, yet subtle seduction, with erotic undertones that create an air of sexual tension that literally had me tingling all over! I’m not kidding… I was tingling!” – Monique, Sinfully… Addicted to All Male Romance

~* 5 Stars from MM Good Book Reviews *~

“This is a great introduction into how Jenner gets his start of being a Master. Lynn is a great storyteller and one of the best when it comes to BDSM. Every story I’ve read by her always has my full attention and I quickly become enthralled in the storyline.

Whether it’s a novella or a full novel Lynn tells the story brilliantly. You definitely want to read this if you have read Bound by Lies and if you haven’t I would encourage you to read both.” – KathyMac, MM Good Book Reviews

~* 5 Chain Handcuffs from Bike Book Reviews *~

“David takes Jenner under his wing when he finds out the boy’s true nature and what follows is 40 hells kind of HOT!!! I love this little short and seeing as it is a prequel to Bound By Lies, which is already out, this will make you understand Jenner better if you have already read it!

Read this one friends, it is hot hot hot, and a wonderful story to boot! Thanks Lynn, for giving us a read with both heat and substance!” – Becky, Bike Book Reviews

~* 4.5 Stars from Prism Book Alliance *~

“There is the usual Lynn Kelling heat within the pages and as always at the end you are left yearning for more. I am very much looking forward to reading more about David and Shea.” – Caroline, Prism Book Alliance

~* 4 STARS from Boys in Our Books *~

“In those first moments when Jenner meets Master David Davenport, I knew I was in for a fun ride. It’s beautiful, sexy, very steamy, and seriously exciting… Come on in! This is your invitation to go to Manse and get a little kinky. I think you’ll enjoy it.” – Kristie, Boys in Our Books

~* 4 Stars from The Blogger Girls *~

“I loved how Master David was with Jenner and how he helped Jenner realize his dreams were within reach… There are so many wonderful scenes in this short story that only left me longing to go read Bound by Lies to see how Jenner makes out on his own. This was a well written BDSM tale that really just sets the stage for the main story. Another fantastic job by Ms. Kelling.” – JustJen, The Blogger Girls

A thousand heartfelt thanks & much love to all of the reviewers for their time and efforts. I really appreciate the feedback, which I always strive to use to grow as a writer and inspire my work. Life has been a whirlwind lately, and quite mentally and emotionally trying, so I’m using this encouragement as motivation to keep working and trying to do my best. xoxo

ADD IT ON GOODREADS

This is an M/M BDSM Romance novella. It’s part of the Society of Masters and a prequel to Bound by Lies, though it can be read as a standalone story! It also introduces the characters David and Shea from my next novel release, Loving the Master, also coming very soon!

Blurb: Most things in life come easily to eighteen-year-old Jenner Parrish, who’s on track to inherit the family business, and is popular, well-liked and good looking. He has everything he could want, except when it comes to love, and sex. Closeted, lonely and desperate, he acquires an invitation to an event at a nearby private gay club, Manse. Feeling out of his element and for the first time quite shy, Jenner is unable to play the wallflower when he captures the attention of the suave, seductive owner of Manse, David Davenport. David is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is gorgeous young Jenner, who begins to realize every fantasy and wild desire could be his for the taking, if only he dares to ask and obediently serve. (M/M/M – For content labels and excerpt, see details on publisher’s site here.)

Excerpt:

Reclaiming his hand, Jenner felt the skin almost tingling where David had touched it, like he had the ability to set the molecules in your skin vibrating and knocking around with excitement.

Jenner’s mind went blank. His tongue felt thick and clumsy in his mouth and he glanced down with embarrassment at his own less impressive shirt and slacks. If the other guys on his team could have seen him then, they would have laughed their asses off. He’d never felt so out of his element, but he knew he needed to catch up, fast.

“Back to my original question,” David said, his voice low, his tone making it feel like this was a private conversation, just between them. Somehow, he was paying even closer attention to Jenner, and the rest of the room, the rest of the entire mansion, faded back. All that mattered was keeping David’s attention, and doing anything that might impress him. If Jenner could impress David, he’d have it made. “What I’d meant to say was… what in particular brings you here tonight, Mr. Parrish? I make sure to know who my guests are. It’s only polite, don’t you think? But, with someone as… intriguing and attractive as you, I knew I had to come and introduce myself. I know more than your name, you know. I already know exactly what I want from you. What I don’t know is what it is you’re looking for. The reason you’ve sought us out.”

There were discreetly dressed security guys flanking both entrances to the room, keeping an eye on them and everyone else nearby. Jenner didn’t know how he hadn’t noticed them earlier. They must have arrived with David because they hadn’t been there before. The pressure mounted even higher, the thrill of what was happening even bigger but Jenner kept tripping over his attempts to reply, stammering, “I, uh… um…”

He couldn’t tell the truth, which was that he was hard up. It was too pathetic.

“Are you looking to meet someone?” David guessed. His voice was hushed but, other than the guards, no one else nearby was paying them much attention. “Looking for a boyfriend, maybe? Or just a blowjob? Something… dirtier?”

Jenner’s blood pressure shot through the roof, his heart pounding, his skin too tight. Suddenly overheated, he felt constricted by his clothes and too aware of each and every part of his body. It was like being thrown into a game where all of the rules had changed on him and he just had to scramble to figure things out play by play, move by move.

“I’m not sure. I don’t… Not a boyfriend, no. Just… company.”

More people were gathering in the room. Drawn to David, maybe? They kept their distance, but some of them began glancing their way. David raised his eyebrows at Jenner’s answer. “Conversation then? A game of pool or cards?”

“No,” Jenner laughed breathlessly, his skin too hot, his body too big and cumbersome. “Not exactly.”

“Then what exactly? Please. Tell me. It’s all right.” His lip caught between his teeth again, and Jenner stared at that, breathing a little harder. “I mean, I can’t help you get it if I don’t know what it is you’re after, can I?”

“Nice reading with super-sexy writing and a titillating look into what’s to come.” – Kazza K, On Top Down Under Book Reviews

Huge thanks to Kazza and On Top Down Under Book Reviews for their feedback!

In other news, I’m 45k words into writing a new novel. It’s a Gay For You, MM, D/s Romance about a devilish painter and his unsuspecting, sweet, bi-curious muse. There’s a lot of heat and tenderness in this one and I’m having a blast writing it. I’ll also be on vacation out of the country starting this Sunday (taking the kids to Niagara Falls and hitting a few other places on the way back down home throughout the week). I’ll be back the following Saturday. After the loss of my youngest brother at the end of April, and being swamped with work since, it’ll be a desperately needed break and some quality time with hubby and the munchkins. I’ll be monitoring things as best as I am able, but please bear with me if I seem hard to get a hold of or missing in action for a few days. Thanks! Happy Monday to ya.

A message to my readers

Hi everyone,

I’ve been debating whether to speak publicly about this, but I’ve decided I’d rather you know why I’m stepping back from my writing duties for a week or two. There will be a delay in response time, so just bear with me.

This past Friday, the 24th, my youngest brother suffered a random slip and fall type injury in his apartment. It progressed from being only a bad bump on the head to, later, provoking a violent seizure which no one witnessed, to causing potentially severe brain damage and then, finally, to absolutely no hope of survival in only a handful of hours on Friday evening. The death certificate was formally issued on Sunday, but we knew almost right away that he was gone.

I’m sure you can imagine the shock we’re all dealing with right now. I’d like to ask that you all do me a personal favor today and hug everyone who will let you. Tell everyone you can what they mean to you. Our time on this earth is so damned short, so please don’t take it for granted. Celebrate each day as best you can. As much as it’s hurting us, we do see that it was my brother’s time to go. The signs were there, but in his passing he is giving the gift of life to others through organ donation, so PLEASE consider supporting those programs in your own ways. My brother will get to live on through so many others and it’s been a tremendous comfort to my family.

He was a sweet, selfless guy who always did for others and never did nearly enough for himself (much to my annoyance, honestly). If you’re the praying sort, I’d be grateful if you could say a prayer for him to ease him on his way to a better place.

My readers and colleagues in this wonderfully weird and gay corner of the romantic fiction world mean more to me than you can ever know. You have enriched my life, expanded my mind, filled my heart, and I have so much love for each and every one of you. I’d hug you all if I could.

With gratitude,
Lynn

On Top Down Under Book Reviews takes on Twin Ties 1 & 2

Kazza K and On Top Down Under Book Reviews has just reviewed My Brother’s Lover (Twin Ties 1) and Twin Affairs (Twin Ties 2). Both reviews do a great job teasing the plot and are filled with some incredibly hot pics and GIFs with quotes from the book (some in the reviews and others on On Top Down Under Book Review’s Tumbr). These links are all NSFW and 18+ so be warned before you click! 😉

4 Stars for My Brother’s Lover

“This is without a doubt my favourite twincest book… Lynn Kelling is  beautifully unapologetic in her writing of these incredibly sexy and flawed guys, and that makes for genuinely good reading. Highly recommended for fellow kinksters and twincest lovers.” – Kazza, On Top Down Under Book Reviews

 

4.5 Stars for Twin Affairs

“Lynn Kelling would never let you down in the erotic stakes and Twin Affairs is go- for-broke-fucking with emotion and lashings of heat… I think Twin Affairs is even better than My Brother’s Lover, and I’m not a  series reader. There is plenty of sex again in this book, no complaints, it is hot, hot, hot. But there’s also interesting, engaging characters, primary and secondary, and a nicely developing story.” – Kazza, On Top Down Under Book Reviews

As stated in the review, Twin Affairs is banned by Amazon but Kindle ebooks are available through Fantastic Fiction Publishing, All Romance Ebooks & Smashwords.

HUGE, heartfelt thanks to Kazza & On Top Down Under Book Reviews for all of their time, work and feedback <3

I’m currently editing Double Heat (Twin Ties 3), which should be released in just a few months!

CENSORED: Where to buy Twin Affairs & Cursed Blessings

705Twin Affairs has been banned by Amazon since its release. The Kindle format file is available for purchase through Fantastic Fiction Publishing (where it’s ON SALE!), All Romance Ebooks and Smashwords. I’ve also been informed the epub file from Barnes and Noble also works on Kindle.

701As of this week, Cursed Blessings has been labeled as “adult material” on Amazon, which means it no longer shows up on my author page on Amazon AND it doesn’t show up if you search for it by title and by my author name. HOWEVER, it is still for sale on Amazon, but you can only access the page by direct link. This is the direct link. As with all of my books, it is also for sale through ALL major vendors.

I’m asked constantly when Twin Affairs will be released on Kindle format. It’s out, I promise. The only reason you can’t find it is because Amazon thinks they get to determine what you should be able to read. Buy links for all of my stories can always be found in the side column of the front page of my website.

If you’re a fan of books, creativity, self-expression and freedom of speech, I wholeheartedly, encourage you to NOT shop at Amazon and purchase your books direct from the publisher, or ANY other retailer. Their censorship policies are constantly expanding, severely restricting authors, publishers, cover artists, etc. Their censorship bots flag certain words, certain content, penalize and terrorize small, indie publishers. Their bots also have been cracking down on what can be shown in cover art, which is why Cursed Blessings got flagged as adult material and buried on their site. Amazon also keeps a majority of the profits from every single sale they make, with only a very small percentage leftover for the author, publisher, cover artist, editor, proofreader, etc. No other vendor does this. Because Amazon wants the monopoly over the book market, they offer modest “savings” to tempt customers, but those savings hurt the people working their asses off to produce quality products and threatening other vendors who offer similar services without the terrorizing and severe restrictions of freedom of speech and press. I know many people love to shop at Amazon because of how easy the one-click shopping is, but I promise you, there’s a huge unseen cost.

I write my books for ADULTS. I will never censor my content to appease a corporation who fancies themselves the morals and ethics police over grown adults fully capable of making choices for themselves. If you’d like to continue to see kinky, sexy, dirty, thrilling, boundary-pushing content in your books, please shop somewhere besides Amazon.

Thank you so much for reading.

Much love,
Lynn
