Meet Brian - Van Zant Siblings Series

2018 Survival Instinct
When I started writing for the publisher Loose-Id in 2009, it was in response to an call out: Basically gay men in any setting, action/adventure, danger 40K words or less...

I was ready for something new. My Chronicles of Surrender were doing well, I was getting lots of fan mail, but I wanted to hit the big time, or something close...
I sent out more manuscripts to Harlequin than anyone should have to send and I always got very nice "We pass at this time, but please submit again" letters...
Then I went to a Writer's Convention and one of the editors who had rejected my work had open calls to Talk To An Editor and Pitch your book! I was memorable apparently, because this very nice woman explained that my novels were a little to daring, a little too risque, and maybe "tone them down a bit... and for the love of all things holy stop writing in First Person, Present tense."
So, I dusted off my favorite Harlequin submission, "Just Tobias" changed the female heroine to male, addressed all the gender issues inherent to that decision, rewrote it as third person past tense and rewrote every sex scene to gay sex... trust me, my melancholy is making it seem so much easier than it was...
2016 review, by Delta, The Romance Review

SURVIVAL INSTINCT was born.. .
Just Tobias became Just Brian... don't worry, Tobias Red Hawk, Native American medicine-man-in-training, paramedic, and park ranger is still my lead alpha. The original female lead "Tobias" became my male lead "Just Brian"... as in Dr. Brian Van Zant, archeologist and Cincinnati Natural History Museum curator, and recently widowed...

2010, Survival Instinct
A few years later, I pitched a series to my Loose-Id editor to create the Van Zant Siblings series and rough drafted three siblings (Alexandra, Jessica, and Jake) with sample chapters.
They loved the idea and the diversity of the characters and stories I had planned. Survival Instinct then became the first story in the series Van Zant Siblings.  The reviewers who read it loved Brian and Hawk's love story. The Review by Delta at The Romance Reviews .
Now, here I am, dusting Survival Instincts off, updating, expanding by 30% with hotter and sexier scenes...
Meet Brian:
After discovering his husband was sleeping with his twin brother, museum curator Brian Van Zant's faced with another shocking loss. Both men are killed in a car accident, leaving him no answers, no closure. No chance to say, "I hate you," or "I love you," and not sure which he'd have said if given the chance. Now, months later, Brian still hasn’t put his life back together. Without a plan or a destination, only knowing he can’t face his lonely present until he frees himself from the past and starts over somewhere else, he runs away.

Meet Hawk:
Tobias Red Hawk is a Park Ranger in Montana, where being out of the closet still seems like a dream. After saving the life of blatantly gay and thoroughly attractive Brian, he begins to question his conviction of staying secretly gay. But before he can face his own identity crisis, there is a mystery to be solved at the top of the Bitterroot mountain range and the answers may lie in the myths of his childhood.

When Hawk’s past returns to kill him, both men discover there’s nothing like facing death up close to make a man find his Survival Instinct.
Now, Fast forward... 2018 has become the year The Bottom Fell Out of the small publisher market. Loose-Id announced their closing... becoming the 3rd publisher to close on me in a year ... and leaving me with a backlist of 33 books to find publishers for, but I decided no can do and jumped into self-publishing with both feet.

This year is dedicated to my back list and getting all of my novels back on line, including the Chronicles of Surrender, which readers have been clamoring for!

Cover Reveal

Working on getting all of my books online, following the closure of Loose-Id, Samhain, and Ellora's Cave. Damn, it's been a hard year! and left me with 33 novels without a publishing house. So, I am publishing them all myself...

All three of Koko's current books in the A Little Bedtime Story/Van Zant Siblings-Julian and Liam series crossover are now available:
  1. A Little Indulgence
  2. A Little in Danger
  3. A Little Kinky Adventure
Now for the cover reveal! Quite different from the original Loose-Id cover, yes?

5.20.2018

Now in PRINT! Now In PRINT! Now in PRINT!!!

Yes, you read that right! You can now get Koko, Julian, and Liam in print! You can read the first few chapters with the “look Inside” feature at the link :)
Koko wanted a Daddy, now she has two!


Ebook: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D67VKBH
Print: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1982946385

Koko is a Lolita J-Pop mega star, facing a Eurasian Tour after the death of her guardian. Mentally, physically, and emotionally not ready to face a grueling road trip, her doctors insist she renege on her professional obligations, but an attempt to delay the tour results in threats from her record label’s owner.

Julian Van Zant is an aging rock star who had one great experience in his life that outshone all others: an age-play relationship with a woman named Angélique. However, she fled for a normal vanilla life.

A chance encounter with a woman he knows only by reputation leaves him worried about her safety. When she offers him the chance of a lifetime to be both her travel companion and Daddy, it seems like he’s finally been given a second chance.

Will Koko’s learning that Julian and his brother Liam are a package deal ruin everything? And will once burned and far less-forgiving Liam be willing to risk his heart to the little who has the power to rip him to shreds?

Author's Note: Although the protagonist, Koko, is well beyond the age of consent, she presents part time as a "little"; that is, she acts like a young girl. The sex in this series takes place between consenting adults, but those with a history of childhood sexual abuse or incest may find this triggering.

My Career As An Author Now Faces A Cross Road.

Loose-Id is now closed!
Andmy career as an author now faces a cross road.
Asking for patience dear readers…
As all three of my publishers have gone out of business in the last 12 months, I have 33 titles I am now going to be self-publishing because I am fed up with indie publishers going belly up. My Chronicles of Surrender have now been “published” by three publishers and been unavailable due to the editing and relaunching process more YEARS than they’ve actually been listed as available … so unacceptable!
As such, self-publishing and relaunching one book takes time, energy, money and is high stress … doing my entire back list is … holy wow stressful. So please be patient.
In addition to the 27 titles still waiting for revisions and updates, new cover art, and relaunch (4 novels are currently available) https://www.amazon.com/Roxy-Harte/e/B00J496FIE
I am also writing … because that’s my number one focus of being an author and I honor my muse by writing when the words are spilling from my brain like a waterfall.
I am so thankful and so appreciative of all of my readers!
I know some of you have emailed asking when this or that title will again be available and I try to reply to each and every one of my readers, so if I missed your note, message, email, or blog comment-- please forgive me for missing it and try to understand that I am doing as much as I can do while also trying to balance family and health issues.

Being Little In Public (Embracing the DDLG Lifestyle)

Okay, so you've decided you definitely want to try out or dive deeper into the DDLG Lifestyle...
For those of you uninitiated into this particular BDSM subset: DDLG stands for Daddy Dom Little Girl (Substitute Mommy and Little Boy for multiple variations on the theme) ...may find this article of interest: Understanding DDLG Relationships)

*As always I use male gender pronouns for Daddy and female for little because that is representative of my current dynamic.


You may be wondering just how to be your beautiful little self in public, or when you know you will be around people who have no idea you are in the lifestyle, or are totally clueless DDLG exists, and you don't want to clue them in (Think grandma, your boss, your clergy, the lady at the checkout counter wondering if you are a pedophile)

You may be worried about accidentally regressing in a public place and need to have ways to blend in so as not to be obvious (I understand the concern. For me a PTSD Trigger or Random Panic Attack, or Garden Variety Anxiety kicks in and I'm suddenly clinging to an alternate reality and feel like I have one foot in both worlds.) Have a game plan in your mind for if the worst happens, how you can escape the situation until you are ready to deal with it.

If either of these headspaces Curious to Explore or Worried About Being Outed, feels authentic to you, it might be time to explore a few easy to incorporate practices that will subtly allow you to be little in public places that can become easier with time. Remember, start small, don't panic, remember to breathe... and own your identity with pride (even if you're being covert about it)

Keep in mind, everything from here on is merely suggestions or inspiration to be personalized by you based on your little-age and relationship status. If you are a single little, maybe seek out a community friendly caregiver to take you out or even a very close friend to be your accomplice.

Subtle Ways to be in Little Space and not clue in the world...

Behavior:
  • Getting ready to go out is hard! Daddy can help choose the outfit, put on your shoes, and fix
    your hair. Of course you will probably try Daddy's patience by dragging your feet and/or waiting until the last minute... and if Daddy doesn't remind you to potty before you leave the house, he can't get too angry when you immediately have to stop somewhere to potty. JS.
  • Always hold Daddy's hand. If daddy forgets about hand holding, he can't be surprised when bright and shiny, or yummy sweets distract you from whatever boring thing he is looking at and you walk away...
  • Ask for help opening and closing containers
  • Wait for help opening all doors, including car and stores
  • Wait for Daddy to buckle your seatbelt, or remind you to do it
  • Singing, humming, carefree playing. Run, jump, skip, don't step on any cracks...
  • Running normal errands and grocery store runs? Leave time for the toy section, book section, candy section, ice cream section.
Dining Out:

  • Ask Daddy to order for you
  • Order off of the Kid's Menu
  • Order off the regular menu but order Kid Friendly items like french fries or tater tots
  • Order a kid friendly drink: milk, juice, Hi-C, or a milkshake 
  • Find yourself at a dinner party? Appetizers and Snacks Tables offer finger foods easily imagined as Little Offerings! (I've been known to only eat grapes and pretzels because I'm "finicky" ...technically I'm not, but it's an easy sell.)
  • Always be on the lookout for an Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt Shop!
  • Always have quarters ready for the bubblegum machine! Or Daddy better have some spares!


Clothing:
  • Pull-ups under clothing
  • Onesie worn under clothing
  • T-shirts with animated characters: I have a few really old Sesame Street T-shirts featuring Big Bird and Cookie Monster, one from the World of Pooh, cause Eeyore (Vintage is in)
  • T-shirts from the Gaming World... anything from Mario and Tetra to World of Warcraft and Call of Duty Works (Gaming is cool) 
  • Hoodies, Winter Hats, and Summer Ball Caps with Ears (I have every season covered)
  • Furry or Elf Ears (Not just for Renfairs or Conventions)
  • Plush anything (Tactile is everything, think soft, cuddly, warm)
  • Flannel anything
  • Cute socks (these run the gamut from knee socks, cute cartoon characters to lacy anklets)
  • Always choose colors that make you feel younger...that may be pastels, or rainbow bright, or glittery, or varying shades of black. This is you claiming your version of little and it doesn't have to look like anyone else's version of little because You Do You best always! 
  • Look for reasons to wear your Kigurumi anywhere and everywhere... Pub Crawls, 5-K races, Movie Premiere's etc

Accessories:

  • Backpacks instead of a purse (This is a plus because backpacks come in every style and color imaginable. Dig animation? There is a backpack for that -- fav cartoon character, Disney princess, or anime hero? Furry details? Glittery? Black leather and studs?)
  • Tiny, tiny purses...shop the kids section of any department store, or order from a specialty shop online
  • Bring along a stuffy or doll. If you are in college, this is easy peasy...claim your emotional support stuffy is easier to manage than keeping alive a support animal. If you hang out in boardrooms, this might be harder, but still doable. I've kept a Kid Meal doll in my for years.
  • Ink Pens with fun ink colors!
  • Pens/Pencils with Fun Toppers! (Bonus: no one will walk away with your unique item)
  • Stickers on Everything and left everywhere... cause stickers
  • Hair bows, Fun Headbands, and Clips
  • Bubbles ... keep a small bottle of bubbles in your purse to leave a little happy floating on the air wherever you go
  • Glitter ... glitter on your face and body, in your hair, on paths ... sprinkling glitter lets like minds no you are in the area

Activities:
  • Playing at a park
  • Coloring outside sidewalks with chalk
  • Arcades
  • Find a Local Coloring Club (or start one to meet once a week at a library, community center, or bookstore, because adult coloring books are big business and everyone needs stress relief!)
  • Join a role playing or reenactment group
  • Theme Parks
  • Water Parks
  • Join or Create a Young Adult Book Club and mix classics like the Harry Potter series, with newer releases (if this becomes your personal project you can personalize even more with reading prizes and games to amp up the fun!)
  • Monthly Fun Field Trip! Go with your significant other, or friends who don't even have to know your lifestyle to do a monthly activities like attend a Disney movie premier, go to the zoo, aquarium, laser tag, putt-putt golf, or nature center)
  • Bicycling! Discover your local biking trails!
  • Little Day is all about you from beginning to end and should include fun food, fun outing, and fun small treat (even if its just a $1. kid toy from the Dollar Store)

RELEASE DAY! PRODIGAL SLAVE

 A summons from the man she once called Master turns this soccer mom’s world upside down.

Recently divorced soccer mom and paralegal extraordinaire Charlotte Sullivan has a secret past life that returns to haunt her on her birthday in the form of a perfectly gift-wrapped, blood-red velvet bustier, followed by a summons from her once master, François Rene de Hart.
 Pure lust awaits a mere train ride away, but she fears the journey may break more than her heart the second time around. With her twin teenage daughters in Europe for the summer, the opportunity to relive her youth with a man she once loved seems too good to be true.  Curiosity and temptation win out over logic. It’s also a chance to be bad, and she hasn’t been bad in a very long time.
  But more surprises are in store for Charlotte than merely a reunion and quick hook-up. François’ current lover, Pierre-Louis, is very much a part of his life, and if she wants to be truly reunited with her Master, she must learn to love the other man as well. The fact he is a much younger man is daunting to say the least.
Available in ebook and print!
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CDDNZ9R

This is a rerelease of a previously published novel that has been updated and expanded with even sexier scenes!

Guilty Pleasures reviewer Kitty gave Prodigal Slave 4 STARS and said:

"Prodigal Slave is a look at the darker side of BDSM. It was a very alluring book right from the beginning. It tells the story of a woman, Charlotte, who gave up her life as a Slave to fulfill her dream of having children. ...Roxy Harte weaves a beautiful tale of love lost and then found again. She incorporated Charlotte’s children into the story and found a way for them to accept the life that their mother has now decided to lead. You go through the emotions of all characters right with them, the love, the hate, the sexual needs of all three of the main characters. It was a story that grabbed you right from the beginning and didn’t let you go until the end. I would highly recommend this book if you are interested in romance with BDSM on the side.

PORN STARS fall in love, too

Published 2018, epub and print


Published 2011, epub and print
When I published PORN STARS fall in love too with Samhain Publishing (now closed) ... the publisher insisted I rename the story Heart of Change to appeal to a larger demographic. I hated the title then, I hate the title more now! Because it symbolises all that's wrong with America...

Prettying things up for "conservative America"... as if this story was in any way written toward that market. Fuck that. That America tries to steal the rights from and shame every individual under the LGBTQIAPK label. That America normalizes PREJUDICE, HATE, HOMOPHOBIA, MISOGYNY, CONVERSION THERAPY, RAPE CULTURE...
and to every bit of that America, I say, FUCK YOU.

I wrote the story to equalize Sex Workers as men and women who work hard for a living.
I wrote the story for every over forty woman who has ever questioned her sexual identity and decided to stand up and declare that her needs aren't being met by being normal...

When I wrote  PORN STARS fall in love too it was never really targeted to the larger audience of erotic romance readers, but it received favorable reviews. Like the one by SALLY from Queer Magazine Online: who wrote,

"Deep and sorrowful, Heart of Change is an empowering read that is more about questions than it is about answers. It’s about questioning every aspect of your identity, and about finding the courage to look deep inside yourself, even when the answers you find aren’t necessarily the ones you were seeking. As the title suggest, it’s also a book about changes, the emotions that drive them, and the emotions they elicit in the reader."

and...


 "For me, a significant part of the appeal in Heart of Change was the development of Simone’s sexuality. I thought her transition to bisexuality was handled very well, and I had no trouble accepting such a significant change in her lifestyle after 40+ years. I also appreciated the fact that the story ultimately led her to question whether she might really be a lesbian, as opposed to arbitrarily making some bold declaration. We may not be left with the happiest or tidiest of endings, and there are still questions remaining, but it’s a story that comes across as real. When you’re dealing with porn stars, lesbians, and a mid-life crisis, the fact that the characters and choices do come across as ‘real’ is a testament to Roxy’s talents as a storyteller."

So to summaraize:
PORNSTARS, fall in love too has history... it's been expanded and updated from it's original release.
Please let me know if you Love It, or Hate It... I really love to hear from my readers!!!

Danson O’Brian, renowned writer and gender educator, is recognized as the most eligible lesbian in New York. Strong, confident, sexy, she embodies genderqueer in a dramatic fashion. She loves her life, loves her women and really, truly loves the excitement of the city. 

However, life hasn’t always been so perfect. Growing up in Kansas, Danni felt like an outsider, preferring cars to dolls and, as a teen, rebuilding car engines was more her thing than a day at the mall. She never fit in. After her father experiences a stroke, she’s needed to keep the family business going until he recovers. She doesn’t think twice about boarding a bus, but even though she’s changed, the people in town haven’t. 

Jessica Morrison, the “town whore” and the sexiest woman Danni’s ever seen, may be her only salvation, especially when she learns Jessica secretly likes girls and might be interested in a few discreet rendezvous. Except Danni gave up keeping secrets long ago, and she isn’t about to go back in the closet now.
