I’m entering Flesh Market in Scorching Reviews Sex Scene Championship in August. I wasn’t going to originally, because it hasn’t even been accepted anywhere yet, but she needed another entry, so I thought–why not? But it doesn’t have a cover, or a release date, or anything yet, so I had to come up with something of my own to add a little visual appeal.
I purchased this image from Strangeland Photography, cropped it down and did some minimal futzing around with Photoshop, because it’s been about 10 years and I look like Granny trying to do hiphop with her walker when I get working in it. (Can I just say I would like to take Victor home with me? He’s the one bent over backward. Go check out his portfolio at Strangeland.) (And now I feel like total cougar.)
Here’s what the final product looks like, and the working blurb for the story.
Bodies and Souls 1
Special Agent Leo Gale is up a creek. A year and a half of deep cover is about to go up in flames. He needs help – something, someone to salvage the operation and save the lives of untold numbers of trafficked teenagers.
But he wasn’t expecting the partner they sent, or his own gut-punch of a response to the man.
Julian worked hard for that FBI Honors Internship. It was supposed to be a foot in the door. He’d never expected it to catapult him into the middle of a major undercover operation. Yet here he is, sleeping on a filthy mattress and using every trick in the book to avoid torture--and worse. He’s never felt so scared, or so alive, in his entire life, and he’s not sure if it’s the danger, or Leo, that’s making his heart race.
There’s no time to think about it, though. The operation is heating up, and Leo and Julian are running out of time and options. As choices become more difficult, they must find a way to take the traffickers down, or risk becoming just another set of organs for sale.
Flesh Market is the first of three stories about a human trafficking ring and the Red Market. I have about a third of the second story mapped out, and it will be much less of a thriller than the first one. Then the third one steps firmly back into thriller territory.
So, come August 8 and 9, I’ll be pestering everyone to come vote. Not just for my sex scenes, but for all the MM sex scenes. We’re seriously outnumberbered (less than 10 in almost 100 entries), and we need all the support we can get. 🙂
