The city of New Orleans is rich in tradition, diverse, and known for the inspiration it provides. In the “Big Easy” there lies the hunger for the erotic as well as the unknown. The residents here feel that sexual energy and it reveals itself through their various creative activities.

Join the characters as they take a wild ride on the edge, enjoying their town for all it has to offer. There’s a certain magic in the air, an erotic magic that cannot be ignored.

New Orleans is supposed to be the big easy. One night changes everything for Frankie Choteau.

New Orleans. A city rich in tradition, diversity, and on the comeback trail from hurricane Katrina. Francois “Frankie” Choteau, a resident of this town, a cop with a hot temper and low tolerance for bs. Kajika Fortier, a transplant from Oklahoma came here looking for a dream and unfortunately it’s turned into a nightmare. On a hot summer night, they meet and cross paths during a very difficult situation. Despite this, the attraction between them is evident and loneliness for both men is a fate worse than death. They’d both like a chance at happiness but will the circumstances and Frankie’s uneasiness prevent their happy ever after?

Excerpt -HOT
Frankie set the bags down in the corner by the window and waltzed back over slowly to embrace Kajika. Wanting him, he wrapped his arms around his waist and buried his nose into his neck, smelling the cologne he’d come to love. He smelled so good, as always, good enough to taste and lick. “Kajika, I want you now,” he growled and nuzzled farther down until he reached his collarbone. He added a series of generous licks along with soft bites on his skin, leaving small red marks on his honey tanned flesh.

“Ooh, Frankie. I been waiting for this… for… oohhh shiit… baby!” Kajika grabbed the back of Frankie’s neck and caressed it, rubbing the tension from his muscles.

Hands roaming all over Kajika’s lithe frame, Frankie pressed him against the wall and crushed his body with his own. In a swift move, he switched from the soft pecks on his flesh to subtle tongue tangling. Passionately, they explored each other’s mouths while both attempted to begin remove clothing, piece by piece. Kajika went first, pushing him away so he could yank his own shirt over his head. Once he revealed the top of that gorgeous body, Frankie wished to go farther down and enjoy the taste of his new man but, damn, did he want to be inside him. That would have to be enjoyed a little later.

While their mouths were still connected, Kajika opened his jeans, button by button, seductively, as if he were putting on a show. When they fell to the floor in a pool around his ankles, Frankie noticed he wasn’t going commando as he usually was. Surprised to see boxer briefs, he stared at him, starry-eyed, while Kajika toed the pants off and removed his loafers. “Wearing underwear these days?”

Kajika grinned and wrapped his muscular arms around Frankie’s neck. “I needed to wear more so it’ll give you more to take off. Plus remember what I said about playing at your pace?”

“God, babe, you’re too much!” Frankie’s whisper was throaty and his groin filled a little more with each touch of this man’s body. Especially now with his hands groping Kajika’s backside, searching for the small puckered hole he’d dreamt of licking and sucking for the longest time. When he found it, he couldn’t resist, moistening the tip of his finger and probing the tight space to prepare for his entry.

“Mmhmm, Frankie, want ya there. God, do I want you there!”

“And I wanna be there… now…” Frankie brushed his lips against Kajika’s until his lover captured them between his own and bit the bottom lip. Kajika’s teeth on him sent a rush of heat to his midsection and his nipples pebbled underneath his T-shirt. Wanting to pick up the pace, he gripped Kajika’s arms and brought them down between them, guiding him forward until they reached the edge of the bed. Impatient, he gave Kajika a gentle shove and he bounced off the mattress, driving the posts of the bed into the wall.

Hope our next door neighbor ain’t home!

In reality, Frankie could not have cared less. Surely, whoever was in there would be getting quite an earful now and for the duration of time they stayed here. He toed his shoes off and hovered over Kajika, rubbing his crotch against his, making himself harder by the second. His breath caught in his chest and, heart pounding, he leaned into him, pressing his lips on top of Kajika’s.

Kajika pulled his shirt up and ran his hands over the small of his back, digging his nails into his skin while pushing upward to meet his hard thrusts. He wrapped his bare legs around Frankie’s waist, binding Frankie to him. “Ooh God, Frankie, don’t make me wait any longer, damnit. I want you inside me!”

Frankie only nodded, knowing he wanted that too, but he had other plans. This was their first time making love and he wanted to make it really special. Leave an indelible mark on Kajika so he wouldn’t desert him for anyone else. Not wanting to stop, he reluctantly pulled away and tossed the shirt over his head. While Kajika circled his right nipple with his tongue, Frankie struggled with his pants, attempting to take them off without having to move from this spot. When Kajika noticed, he ceased his affections a minute and Frankie achieved his task. He kicked them off the bed and pushed his tongue in between Kajika’s lips once more and rammed the head of his covered cock into Kajika’s buttocks.

“Dammit, Frankie,” he growled and massaged his shoulders and back some more. “Stop being such a tease!”
