As Sergeant At Arms for Devils Pride MC, Tyler “Trick” Malone’s take no prisoners reputation make him one of the most feared and respected members of the club. Unbeknownst to the MC, Trick indulges his most dangerous secret, traveling out of state twice a year to trade his cut for the whip he expertly wields at a gay dungeon.
Trick’s well organized life takes a turn when he saves bar back, and terrified submissive, Chase Ward in a Georgia dungeon. With his protector and dungeon owner dead, Chase is no longer safe in the place he once called home. With the new dungeon owners circling like sharks, he desperately begs for sanctuary in the arms of his savior.
A year later, the MC is still none the wiser that Trick’s houseboy is anything more than a grateful servant. Chase knows, if the club finds out their secret, they will kill Trick—the man he’s come to rely on for everything from the food he eats to the pleasure he feels to the security he craves. Even when gratitude turns to love, Chase never expects reciprocation from his ruthless Master. After all, the only way for them to survive is if Trick remains the heartless bastard the MC knows.
Trick is positive he has it under control and having Chase around has definitely made his life easier. There doesn’t seem to be any harm in letting Chase take a part-time job at Velvet Ropes, especially after meeting privately with the owners. That is until a bomb explodes at the club, leaving Chase fighting for his life and forcing Trick to face his long hidden feelings.
Even if Chase survives, that bomb has done more than rock the foundation of the popular leather club. It’s blown Trick and Chase’s well-guarded secret out of hiding, putting their lifestyle and their lives at risk. Now there is only one thing Trick needs to do before the club gets them and that’s to get revenge on the person who dared to hurt his precious boy.
Authors Note: Tricking Chase is a direct spin-off of The Protector, which is book 3 in my Sizzling Miami series. Though I tried to provide enough details that it isn’t necessary to have read that book, I cannot really call this a standalone.
Warning: Tricking Chase contains an established D/s relationship, hot guys on motorcycles, an undercover DEA agent named Snake, and a few visits from fan favorite Sizzling Miami characters.

About the Author:
"Wearer of Many Hats" is a title that was given to Jessie by a former employer some twenty years ago. This dubious distinction, along with the job description "everything is her fault", came after she fixed an electrical problem—during her interview—that the office had been having for years. After that, if anything went wrong, her coworkers immediately declared it her fault so she'd have to fix it. This position of importance inspired the owner to convert a closet into an office, thereby providing her coworkers endless opportunities to refer to her as “the girl in the closet.”
Today she is still the “Wearer of Many Hats” and her family has readily jumped on the “everything is her fault” bandwagon. Most mornings start at 5am, where she stumbles into her home office (which is step or two up from a closet) to tackle her personal email, watch gay porn and satisfy her Trivia Crack addiction. By six, she’s caffeinated and ready to take on the world. Wearing her favorite red power nightgown, she expertly designs websites, provides SEO and social media services, freelances as a bookkeeper, cooks, cleans and writes.
Writing has been the elusive, life-long goal that seemed to be getting further away as the years went by. It took 30+ years to achieve, but she’s decided that timing is everything. The world wasn’t ready for m/m romance back then, and now that it is, the girl in the closet has finally found her writing home.
Jessie is a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. She’s a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you'll find throughout her books.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Funny thing about those distinctions is I definitely started out as a Panster when I wrote Past Hurts. Towards the end of that book we meet Bull, who was a completely stranger to me. I stopped typing at the end of the chapter to reread and thought “who is that guy?” I had to know. Then, because I put him in Past Hurts, I had to figure out how the MC’s from that book were connected to him. Before I knew it I had a (very) rough plotline of seven books. I only complicated my life more with this second series because there are a lot of connections between Sizzling Miami and Devils Pride MC, forcing me to continue plotting along or veer off into no man’s land.
Are you tempted to write in other genres?
I do have a very vague shifter book in the back of my head, but with two series on my plate, I haven’t really given it attention. I never say never, but I will say not right now.
Do you read reviews? How do you deal with the good, the bad, and the ugly?
It’s tricky. When a book is first released, I can’t help myself. I need to know how it’s being received. I know some authors advise not to look, or to just look at star ratings, but I do want to know what people loved, liked and hated.
As far as how I deal with the good, bad and ugly—I believe that everyone is entitled to their opinion and I know that my books are not for everyone. I would hope that the reviews are constructive and not mean, but it’s not my place to comment either way.
How do you fit in writing in such a busy life?
I’m an organizational freak. Everything has a place, a time slot, a purpose. In addition to writing, my husband and I own a small web design company, so I viciously carve out my blocks of time. The time I devote to web design is contingent on the size of the project(s) we’re working on, but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t devote time to my writing. You’ll see a little bit of me in Chase’s character.
When you finish writing a book, how do you say goodbye to the characters?
I can’t! It’s heartbreaking to think that I’ll never hear those voices in my head again, so I will always write series books. Though each book has its own set of MC’s, its own story and HEA, my guys are a one big happy (crazy, warped) family. That allows me to stay connected to all my MC’s and never lose those beloved character voices in my head.
How much happens in your brain before you know you have a story? Do you have to envision an entire plot or just a few ideas?
Usually I only need a scene or two to play out in my head to start. Now that I have my series plotline, I have a general direction of where each couple’s going and how the stories connect, but I need to see something play out before I put the cursor on page 1.
The best example of this is my current WIP, Safety in Numbers, which is on tap for a fall release. I’ve had the plot for quite some time, but it wasn’t until mid-April that I actually wrote the first chapter. I was standing in the shower, letting the hot water pound down on my back and I closed my eyes. The whole first scene played out for me just like that, completely out of nowhere. It was amazing. I’m pretty sure I was still dripping when I ran into the office to write it down. It’s been a generous fountain ever since.
“I don’t want to be safe if you’re not safe!”
The rush of words stopped him cold. No, no, no! They’d talked about this a hundred fucking times. Chase knew why he couldn’t feel that way. “Chase…”
“I don’t want to be safe if you’re not safe,” Chase repeated, each word punctuated by a harshly drawn breath.
“If I’m worried about you...”
“No, no!” Chase’s eyes nearly rolled back as the gel’s intensity hit its peak and he struggled to hold position. “If you force me to go, I’ll find a way to come back. You’re my Master. I won’t let them take that away from me.”
Though he’d played in the scene for several years, nothing had prepared him for Chase. For the responsibility of another person who would look to him for every decision and who craved his approval. Chase had taught him a lot about merging the lifestyle with a domestic partnership and, though Chase was emotional, he wasn’t clingy or suffocating about it. Not that it had been a cakewalk and those first few months had been a huge learning curve for them both, but Chase’s eager to please attitude and deference eased the way. In their time together Chase never once defied him, whether in play or in punishment, whether he was issuing an order or refusing a request. That Chase would choose to make his stand in this moment, bound to the bed, suffering through a punishment, made it all the more important.
“You would defy me?” It was almost impossible to believe.
“In this one thing, yes. Even if you said you didn’t want me anymore, I would do everything I could to make sure you were safe.”
The boy knew him too well. Knew that he wasn’t above lying or being hurtful if it served his purpose. The lesson in focus had paid off. Chase was sweating and writhing in pain, but his voice was even and his eyes were clear. “You do realize what will happen if anyone hurt you, don’t you, Chase?”
Instead of being put off, Chase nodded once and gave it back. “Exactly what will happen if anyone hurt you, Ty.”
The use of his given name was just playing dirty. Chase knew he had the freedom, but often stumbled over the two simple letters. Defiance and his given name...down and dirty. Was it any wonder that he adored this boy? He wouldn’t condone Chase’s defiance even if it spoke to the feelings he refused to allow either of them to acknowledge. He wouldn’t punish him for it either because he knew how precious that gift of loyalty was.
