UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet: Kay Berrisford

Starting from March up until June I will feature authors attending the UK GLBTQ Meet in Bristol (June 7 & 8, 2014: ukglbtfictionmeet.co.uk/2014-registration/2014-attendees/).

Today author is Kay Berrisford: I used to be a historian and press officer. Then I realized making stuff up and adding fantasy, sex, and BDSM fun was even more exciting than the “day job.” I love writing stories set in any time and place where I can indulge my love for research while imagining two hot guys getting it on. I have a particular passion for English folklore.
I live in Southampton, Hampshire, UK, with my beloved “other half,” in a very small flat that blesses us on occasion with outbreaks of moths and mould. When we aren’t both madly working, we enjoy drinking wine, visiting castles and gorgeous countryside, and stalking cats and greenfinches. I love cats, but because our home is so small, I have to moggy-share with my parents. Siena (right) lives with them. We also travel a lot. My favorite cities are Melbourne, Venice, and Berlin — plus York and London (I went to uni in the last two.)
I was once okay at tennis and have forgotten how to play the violin and piano. I currently jog — but not very far — and enjoy reading all kinds of romance and long, rambling historical novels big enough to commit murder with.

Bad Slave by Kay Berrisford
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (January 27, 2014)
Amazon Kindle: Bad Slave

When the king commands former war hero Captain Jay Ghair to find him the perfect royal slave, Jay’s quiet new life as a librarian is shattered. Jay discovers the boy he’s looking for in Alix, a lowly miner and wannabe court scientist, whom Jay can’t help but secretly adore. However, teaching the rebellious Alix to be a docile slave is difficult. Alix will behave for just one man, and it isn’t the king. It’s Jay.

Standing by while the king’s treatment of Alix becomes cruel is torturous for Jay. He longs to return to his library, yet he can’t bear to leave Alix, or his people, unprotected. To rescue Alix--and save the realm from the increasingly tyrannical king--Jay must confront the demons of his military past and take up the sword again. But his most important battle must be won through returning Alix’s love and learning to master this bad slave who submits only for him.
