If you're wondering...uh...what the what?! never fear! You've reached a new weekend special we're running called Hat Party Pets!

Each Sunday we're doing a short segment to bring you two lovely pets from two lovely LGBT authors. Almost as good as the ADORABLE concept of pets in hats is the fact that each month we're having a prize giveaway! <3 So check it on out and give these animals and their owners a bit of love!

-- Raine O'Tierney and Klaus J. Mousington, Dachshund

Klaus says: My guests today are H and Meiko. Two handsome dogs rockin' two handsome hats!

*~*~About H~*~*

Sarah says: H is a fun-loving boy with a strong sense of duty, who believes no one should sleep after the sun comes up. He's so cool, he goes by his first initial only, like Horatio Caine from CSI Miami. He loves swimming, the snow, and long walks in the woods. While he is not afraid of bears, he is somewhat (understandably) leery of certain neighborhood cats.

Klaus wants to know....

     ...Is H ever a mischievous boy? And if so, how does he get away with his mischief?

When he gets excited, he MUST pick something up and run around squeaking with said item in his mouth. It might be your shoe. It might be your underwear. It could be a five pound dumbbell. Either way, he is so ridiculously cute, it's hard to get  mad at him. :-)

And what book is H bringing us today...?

Special Agent John Flynn is everything that Jerry Parker is not: dangerously handsome, coolly charismatic, and respected by his peers. Special Agent Parker is dedicated and meticulous, but his abrasive personality has given him a reputation for being difficult. When new information on a cold case appears, Parker is assigned to work with Flynn, and sparks fly as their investigative styles clash. Contact with a strange artifact changes everything when it bestows unusual and unpredictable powers on Flynn…and the two men must learn to work together before a killer strikes again.


He sensed Flynn’s presence behind him before he heard him speak.
“Something smells good in here.”

Jerry turned to say something offhand but then completely lost track of what he’d intended to say. Flynn was standing in the doorway to the kitchen, wearing a towel slung low around his hips so that his hipbones showed. The hair on his chest was not too much, just right in fact, tapering down his long torso until it disappeared beneath the towel. He was drying out one ear with another towel, his hair standing up in startled spikes. On the chain around his neck, he wore a simple, tiny silver cross, the kind that a preteen girl might wear. His left shoulder bore the ugly, puckered mark of a bullet wound, the shiny scarring of skin suggesting that the wound wasn’t all that old. Jerry knew from his record that Flynn had been shot in the line of duty about six months ago, but the record didn’t say much more than that.

Flynn had shaved, but his jaw still held the suggestion of a beard. It was probably as close as he ever got to being smooth-cheeked. A hint of soap and the smell of clean, damp skin and aftershave wafted in Jerry’s direction before being lost to the smell of coffee and bacon. The combination of odors struck Jerry viscerally with a little bolt of lust that surprised him.

“Breakfast will be ready in a minute,” Jerry said tersely, turning away to get a second mug down from the cabinet.

“You didn’t have to go to all this trouble,” Flynn said, slinging the towel in his hand around his neck.

Jerry shot him a look. He wondered what kind of game Flynn was playing here. He obviously was aware that Jerry had checked him out; it was evident in the little smile that played around his lips. Was this his way of saying he was so secure in his sexuality that it didn’t bother him? Jerry suspected that was the case.

“Oh. Right. Never mind. This is how you always start the day. What’s in the oven?” Flynn looked amused, something subtle in his eyes that suggested it was at Jerry’s expense. He also looked completely comfortable there in his stupid towel with his hairy legs and his bare feet.

“Frittatas,” Jerry said crisply. He blamed the heat of the oven for the flushing of his face.

“That’s some egg thingy, right?”

Jerry found his gaze drawn to a single bead of water dripping from one of Flynn’s sideburns, making its way in a crooked line over his collarbone. He swallowed before speaking. “Philistine. Yes, some egg thingy. Best eaten hot. You’d better get dressed.” He cleared his throat.

Flynn gave him a little half smile and left the room. Jerry watched the way the damp, soft terrycloth of the towel clung to his ass as he walked away. He took a sip of coffee and made a face as he realized he’d forgotten to add cream. Yep. It was going to be a long day.

*~*~About Meiko~*~*

Ashley says: Meiko is a white, blue eyed Husky with a short stubby tail that he's very self conscious about. He's 11 years old, in great shape, and a real sweetheart. 

Klaus wants to know....

     ...If Meiko could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would he want to go and why?

He dreams of going to Alaska and playing in the snow and pulling a dog sled. He's tired of the HOT South Florida weather.

And what book is Meiko bringing us today...?

Julie has never forgotten her men Timmy and James. When she gets a second chance to rekindle the romance at their reunion, she can’t choose between them.

Forty-four-year-old Julie Weston has loved Timmy and James since her college days twentysomething years ago. She’s fantasised about both men all these long years, never able to choose between them.

She attends their college marching band reunion, hoping Tim and James will go too. When both men show up, her dreams are answered. They’re sexier than she imagined and she prays that they won’t be disappointed by her older self.

It turns out both men came just to see her again and neither is happy about the other man’s presence. They fight over her, confusing her more than ever. It takes a hot ménage—or two—for her to decide which one she’s in love with.
