Today I am so pleased to welcome Cheryl Dragon to Joyfully Jay. Cheryl Dragon has come here as part of the GRL Blog Tour to talk to us about her latest release, Geek in the Woods. She has also brought along a sexy excerpt and a great giveaway.  Please join me in giving her a big welcome!


Undercover Cruising

Meet Cheryl Dragon! She writes it all…including MM

grl tour badgeI’m not new… Far from it. My first title was published in 2007. I attend conferences fairly regularly. If you’ve met me, you know I’m a plus-sized redhead in my thirties. I tend to be quiet/introverted but I write….A LOT. However, the MM rabid readers might have glossed by my name because, well, I write everything…MM, FF, MF, and MMMF!

When GRL announced Chicago–I cheered! I’d wanted to go but the prior locations and timings never worked out. This time, it would! When I told some of my author friends, they were excited. Others were full of questions and concerns. Would I fit in with that group?? Luckily I’ve been around long enough to have friends who went into the all (or mostly) MM direction.

Being a writer of multiple pairings/ subgenres makes me a little weird—I guess.

The Angel Wears Prada In 2007 I published Bad Brad (MM) and Sorority Girl Pledge Time (FF) both with Loose Id. I’ve always had some GLBT in my writing mix through the years (my first release was MF but it’s a chicken and the egg thing…back then people didn’t have different pen names for MF and MM. Great, not I sound old…lol!)

MM is a big part of my writing. My big ménages include MM, usually it’s MMMF. That’s on top of MM only releases. And I’ve continued to write FF when the ideas strike.

So far this year, I’ve release 6 MM novellas and 1 FF. Not too shabby…

Don’t believe me? Want the list with Amazon Links? Here you go (all are erotic romances):

  • Neighboring Affairs (MM Regency):
  • The Angel Wears Prada (MM Light Para):
  • Undercover Cruising (MM Suspense):
  • Hot for Charity (MM Contemp):
  • Hot at Last (MM Contemp):
  • Geek in the Woods (MM Shifter):
  • Rough Landing (FF Contemp):

geek in the woodsSome readers read it all, some writers write it all. But to make life easier for those who have specific preferences, I’ve reworked my website by genre (final update might not be live yet but it’s coming this summer). So if all you want is the MM, it’s easier to find:

If you’re at GRL, don’t worry…I’m bringing promo goodies and stuff for all of my MM and FF.

If you want anything on my ménage, you’ll have to ask!

Excerpt (NSFW)

They walked up one flight of stairs, and Eric stopped a couple doors down. He opened the door and turned to Ray. “This is me. This town really needs a gym. I ate and drank so much tonight, I need to work it off.”

“A gym?” Ray laughed. “You did enough walking today for a workout, I think. Exercise around here tends to be the natural kind.”

Eric nodded. “What about in the dead of winter? Snow would make running or hiking hard. Extreme cold taxes the heart more than needed…”

Ray wanted to listen, but Eric could talk forever. There was something they needed more than talking right now. Ray pulled Eric in and kissed him. The soft leather of his coat contrasted with the hardness of his body. Eric didn’t protest a bit, and his hands slid up Ray’s back possessively.

The urge to push Eric inside and onto the bed pounded in Ray’s veins as he deepened the kiss. Too fast and the sexy geek might cut him off. Run and hide in his massive fully functional fortress of science. Still, Ray slid a hand down and under that coat, cupping Eric’s firm butt cheek.

It earned a moan from the genius. Ray lifted his head and realized he’d fogged up Eric’s glasses. “Maybe I should go?”

Eric gripped Ray’s shirt and pulled him back down for another round of kissing. There was a slight hesitation in his hands, but Eric’s mouth had no problems. His tongue teased Ray’s as their bodies pressed together. Hearing a door close, Ray eased back just enough to speak.

“We are in the hallway,” Ray whispered.

“Hell.” Eric dragged Ray inside and closed the door.

Running with the invitation, Ray pushed Eric down on the bed and slid a hand over the bulge in his crotch. “Thanks for inviting me in.”

Eric’s face burned red as he set his glasses on the nightstand. Then he shoved Ray’s shirt up while his other hand worked on his fly. “I couldn’t stop.”

“Don’t stop now.” Ray kissed Eric’s mouth as he opened Eric’s pants one handed.

“You’re good,” Eric muttered against his lips.

Ray stroked Eric’s cock slowly as it grew. “I’m good with my hands.”

Flipping to a sixty-nine, Eric kissed Ray’s hard-on through his jeans before he guided the zipper down. Finally free, Ray watched Eric’s dick grow.

“God, you’re big.” Eric kissed his sac.

Ray moaned as Eric’s fingers teased his dick. “Never had any complaints.”

Eric nodded and sucked Ray’s cock like it was candy. Ray returned the favor, swallowing Eric’s dick to the balls then flicking the length with his tongue as he let it go. The groans from Eric were muffled as his mouth was full.

“Don’t hurt yourself.” Ray hated the sound of men gagging on him. The effort was appreciated, but an eager tongue and moaning was every bit as good. As Eric worked the head of Ray’s cock, Ray sucked on Eric’s balls. Sliding one finger behind that sac, Ray rubbed the sensitive flesh and nudged backward.

Eric didn’t tense up at all. His cock pulsed harder, and Ray licked the length of Eric’s dick as he worked his finger back to that asshole. As he rubbed the entrance, Eric gasped.

“Please,” Eric said.

Flicking the tip of Eric’s cock with his tongue, Ray grinned. “I love a guy who knows what he wants. First we have to finish this.”


Geek in the WoodsHandyman and bear shifter Ray Hooker’s life was pretty routine until major construction started nearby. Even though business was good for the economy, big change was never welcome in a small town—especially one with a secret.
Still, one look at sexy genius Eric Ridgeway makes Ray want to keep the peace. As Eric continues building a state-of-the-art think tank, the shifter population is terrified their identities will be uncovered by the group of incoming scientists out to exploit them. Ray helps Eric when fear-powered vandals try to slow construction, and hangs on for dear life as the unlikely relationship between them heats up. Ray needs to decide if Eric is worth the risk to his people, but shifts and outs himself while protecting Eric. Once the secret is out of the bag, can their new found attraction outlast the fear, lies and distrust?
