A traumatic past experience taught Luke to beware trusting anyone in a sexual situation.  Some might think it ironic that he picked such a personal career as a piercer with his aversion to sex, yet Luke manages to keep the two separate and runs a successful tattoo and piercing shop with his best friend.


When a stranger enters their shop at closing time Luke is taken aback by the electric handshake they share.  Temple Garrison believes that fate is telling them something and invites the quiet piercer for a meal.  Luke listens as Temple tells him of his fight against cancer and his strong belief in letting bad energy go, being positive.  He’s in town for a five year check up, to see if he’s finally beaten the disease.


Taking things slowly, Temple doesn’t pressure Luke sexually which gives the piercer the courage to begin to let loose.  As the days pass and they wait for the test results Luke and Temple continue to explore their sexual compatibility and feelings of love.  Finding out if Temple is free and taking that last step together means the world to Luke.  Thank God he opened the door at closing time.


Fierce trauma to the heart and the body are intertwined in this emotionally empowering and sensual story.  Prolific and incredibly talented author Sean Michael skillfully blends eroticism with heart and soul in The Piercer’s Game.  Luke is missing out on a vital part of his life until Temple walks through the door and gently, persistently shows him what he’s missing.  The Piercer’s Game is packed with sexual situations, absolutely chock full. Temple’s cancer gives the storyline emotional depth.  Their developing relationship gives The Piercer’s Game heart.  No need to read previous books in the series to enjoy this one, but they are all good too!

Surviving a near fatal accident Knight is finally well enough to return home to his family. Bishop, Rook, and Jason practically fall over each other in their eagerness to take care of their lover.


Slowly but surely Knight’s body is healing.  However, as the days drag on the artist is sinking into a deep depression.  His once volatile, passionate personality is disappearing.  Knight’s lovers feel helpless as they watch him continue to withdraw from life.  Their last ditch effort to shake Knight out of his lethargy better work because if it backfires their family will never be the same.


Author Sean Michael takes the hottest foursome in print on a hard won journey of commitment and love.  Picking up after Knight’s accident, Helpmate explores the fallout of almost losing a partner as well as the dichotomy of their unique relationship.  Of course the expected steamy encounters are present, but Helpmate primarily deals with a healing relationship.  A careful balance of emotional drama and healthy sensuality, Helpmate covers the board.

Spending the holidays with the guys is something of a ‘no brainer’ for Jason.  Rook, Knight, and Bishop have come to mean the world to him.  At this point Jason knows he’s falling in love with Rook and his feelings for the other two aren’t far behind.

Wonderful munchies, presents and all the holiday trimmings don’t compare to the happiness and sexual excess the guys experience.  By New Year’s Jason can’t deny he’s deeply into love with all three men.  Feelings of joy come to a screeching halt however when one of the men are badly injured in a freak accident.  Prayers and wishes may not be enough to put these lovers back together again.

Book three in the highly erotic Chess series continues with sizzling hot encounters, certain to make readers perspire.  Not only does En Prise have four oh, so sexy men, but En Prise also has a strong emotional aspect that hits hard as well.  En Prise is the total package with a strong plotline and hot, off the chart men.
