[Siren Sensations ManLove: Erotic Alternative Consensual BDSM Romance, M/M, bondage, caning, spanking, HEA] Ben didn’t know his Master and boyfriend would leave him homeless and in the lurch. Throw in identity theft just to add insult to injury, too. When his best friend and co-worker, Jake, invites him to move into his spare bedroom, it’s the answer to a prayer. Ben knows Jake’s straight, but it doesn’t stop him from fantasizing about the handsome Dom. The last thing Jake wants is to take advantage of Ben and come off looking like a douche. That’s why, for now, he keeps his carefully guarded secret—that he’s bi, not straight. Toss in a pair of homophobic parents and keeping that fact quiet has made his life easier. But as he realizes Ben is perfect for him, Jake’s forced to confront the realities of life. The choice to be with Ben means facing down his parents and confronting darker, more dangerous realities that he never encountered before as a “straight” man. But can he admit his feelings before someone else steals Ben’s heart? ** A Siren Erotic Romance

Home at Last is the story of Ben and Jake. Ben has just been betrayed by his long-term boyfriend and Dominant, Mort. While Mort hadn't cheated on him (that Ben knew of), he had ripped him off in the worst way...by stealing his identity. Ben was in debt up to his eyeballs after Mort disappeared, owing him several months' rent, running three of his four credits cards up to their limits, and stealing a significant amount of money from Ben's bank account. Ben felt like the world's biggest fool. He'd know Mort for a few years, but worse than the monetary betrayal was the betrayal of trust. Ben had trusted Mort as his Dominant, and Mort broke that trust in the worst way possible. Would Ben be able to trust, or love, anyone ever again? Jake is Ben's best friend. They've known each other for more than 10 years, through work, their memberships at Venture (the BDSM club they belong to), and their association with the Suncoast Society munch group. He's not happy with his relationship with Allison. A childish, self-centered 31-year-old "little girl," Allison wants far more out of their relationship than Jake does. She plays at being "submissive," but she has become increasingly less willing to participate in BDSM play with Jake. The final straw comes when she threatens to start playing with other tops. When Jake calls her bluff, it's the beginning of the end for the couple, despite their three years together. When Jake realizes the depth and seriousness of Ben's financial situation, it's a no-brainer for him to ask Ben to move in with him. After all, he owns his own house with plenty of room to spare. It's cheaper for Ben to move in, pay rent, and help with chores. And it certainly will help Ben deal with the stress of all the idiocy Mort's putting him through. It's a win/win situation for both men. Once the move is complete, however, the attraction Ben has always felt for Jake soon becomes apparent. But Jake is straight, not gay. As feelings change and start to accelerate, complications arise. But will Ben be able to trust anyone ever again? Is it even possible for Ben to move past what Mort did to him, both emotionally and financially? And what about Jake? A relationship between a straight Dominant and a gay submissive isn't exactly what either man is looking for. The future seems very uncertain and there are so many obstacles. Is it even worth it to put their friendship at risk over something so fraught with danger? From here, Ms. Dalton takes the reader on an incredibly realistic journey through the world of BDSM as seen through the eyes of Ben and Jake. Ms. Dalton has been an active participant in the BDSM lifestyle for many years, and the details and knowledge of that lifestyle as portrayed in her novels are incredibly accurate.
