Garden Porn for a Vampire?

Thanks so much for hosting me, Victoria. I’m very excited to be visiting you on day two of my Landscapes blog tour and giveaway. It’s always a pleasure to talk writing and characters and romance and all things sexy at your place. You know me well enough not to be too terribly surprised when I tell you and your lovely readers that today I want to talk about one of my very favourite topics – garden porn.

I don’t mind telling you I was a little surprised when garden porn came to the forefront of my naughty little mind in connection with an MM vampire novella, but why shouldn’t vampires enjoy spending time walking and contemplating in lovely gardens as much as we mortals do? In fact, it may mean even more to them, since they can’t see the brilliant colours in the sunlight or the contrast of blue sky to green and growing things. Okay, so Alonso Darlington has ulterior motives in the restoration of a derelict garden on his ancestral property. It’s really the landscaper he’s interested in and, in the beginning, the ruined garden is nothing more than an excuse to hire him on.

While very talented landscaper, Reese Chambers, doesn’t know that he’s working for a vampire, he does know that the man he’s contracted to is very sensitive to sunlight and can’t go out of doors in the daytime. That being the case, the garden he’s been asked to resurrect must be a night garden. A night garden for a vampire, well that does sort of go without saying, doesn’t it? The problem is that Alonso’s garden is in the high fells of the English Lake district and, if the rocky soil wasn’t problem enough, the climate most definitely means no night-blooming jasmine for Alonso.

If Alonso isn’t already mad about Reese, he certainly is when Reese’s vision of garden porn for a vampire involves not so much shrubs and posies – no veg either. There are no courgettes or carrots or tomatoes for Alonso. Instead, Alonso’s garden is a garden of planets and stars. As it turns out Alonso’s garden, with its gorgeous daytime view of the fells, which he’s not been able to see for hundreds of years, also has the perfect view of the elliptical at night and, while Alonso will never be able to look at our sun, he can enjoy a million other suns as well as planets and nebulae and all the constellations that process along that elliptical as the earth orbits the sun and the year turns.
How does that translate into garden porn? Well who doesn’t like a little sex al fresco out under the stars?

Landscapes Blurb:

Alonso Darlington has a disturbing method of keeping landscaper, Reese Chambers, both safe from and oblivious to his dangerous lust for the man. But Reese isn’t easy to keep secrets from, and Alonso wants way more than to admire the man from afar. Can he risk a real relationship without risking Reese’s life?

Landscapes Excerpt:

The moonlight was bright and Reese’ night vision was good, but the path was rocky and steep. He stumbled and went down on his arse, catching himself on one elbow and cursing as the sensation of pins and needles shot up his arm. He forced his way to his feet slipping and sliding the last hundred meters on the dew-drenched stones. He was just about to call out, just about to shout Alonso’s name when the man moaned softly and Reese stopped in his tracks. Not only was Alonso no longer curled on his side, but the man was naked. He lay flat on his back, his knees bent, bare feet resting on the bench, one arm flung over his face, the other curved down low across his belly, his fisted hand moving up and down the length of his cock.

Reese froze, unable to move, unable to breathe. Alonso Darlington was beautiful, like no one he’d ever seen. His body was sculpted, not like polished marble, but with the ruggedness of the rocks of the fells, like he labored to be free from himself, like one of Michelangelo’s prisoners. The muscles of his belly tensed and relaxed and convulsed and relaxed again in response to his stroking. The movement of muscle beneath skin on his biceps and his forearms, on the rise and fall of his chest, on the tensing of the chorded muscles in his neck and throat as he swallowed was like a hypnotic dance. The muscles in his thighs twitched and bulged as he rocked and arched upward until Reese could see the clenched half-domes of his buttocks. He could smell the nutmeg and yeast scent of his heat, charged through with the crackle of ozone. He stood frozen on the spot, his own cock responding to the sensory overload, even as his brain demanded he give the man his privacy, demanded with a sense of half-frightened urgency that he leave as quietly as he could, but it was too late.

Alonso’s arm fell away from his face and Reese could feel the nearly physical press of his gaze.

I’m sorry,’ he managed around a tongue that felt too big for his mouth. ‘I saw you, and I thought that … I’ll go now,’ but even as he said it, Reese stepped forward, feeling reeled into the man like a fish on a line. Alonso eased himself up on one elbow, not taking his hand off his cock, not taking his eyes off Reese. ‘I should leave,’ Reese croaked, but instead he stepped nearer.

In a move that was not quite human in its grace, Alonso sat up and nodded to the bench next to him.

Cautiously Reese sat down struggling to keep his eyes off the man’s cock. He could still feel Alonso’s gaze on him as though he were the one who was naked. ‘I thought … When I saw you out here, lying on the bench at this hour … I was worried.’

‘That’s very kind of you, Reese, but there’s nothing wrong with me. My … afflictions, don’t trouble me much. I’m not ill. In truth, I’m the epitome of health. I’m just … different.’

‘I’m sorry. Of course you would be out after dark. I didn’t mean to offend you. I’ll go now.’ But before he could stand, Alonso’s hand shot behind his head with lightning speed, fingers curling in Reese’s sleep-mussed hair, and in that instant of reaction, the second Reese gasped for his breath, the man’s mouth was on his, warm and hard and terrifying in its command, a command Reese could do little but respond to. Even as fear battled lust low in his belly, he parted his lips, opened his mouth, welcomed the search and conquest of Alonso’s tongue, his own the white flag that instinctively yielded all else beyond the breach, all territories beyond the invasion.
