Paddy McGuire

After dithering around it for quite some time, I eventually decided to write what has become my longest book to date - The Wild Side of Paddy McGuire.
Paddy has been an integral part of the Wild Side series of books, an enigmatic character whose story was never told. But how did a man who acts so butch and has more authority that most of the masters he comes across, end up being the ultimate slave?
I always knew the answer in vague form, but had never fromulated a history for the man. It proved to be the most enjoyable exercise coming up with his story. Although it was tricky at times, as I'd already created the end result, so everything had to fit with the character. I think it works pretty well. You can see for yourself though - the book is available through:

It seems to be getting well received. Here is a recent comment posted on Amazon...

Loved this one - gritty, base, lots of fun! January 20, 2013

I loved this one. I have not read any other of the Wild Side stories so I was a Brighton virgin. Not any more. Firstly the cover is wonderfully representative and very much like what I expect Paddy to look like. The blurb explains everything well - Paddy is a wild guy who got himself in trouble gambling and now has to pay the piper. The only way he can do that is to be sold off as a slave for the money. He is taken to the Bears Den for training. Angus owns the Bears Dean.

Paddy goes through many adventures but the fact he is a natural top really makes any sort of bottom training excruciating for him. The warnings are correct on this but it doesn't really seem too harsh. Paddy experiences many things on his journey but still he has an anger that cannot be tamed. The Sheikh that wants to buy him wants someone still seething with anger, hatred, and dislike. The problem is with Paddy that comes with a temper that would sooner have him beat the guy up as anything else. The challenge is to train him NOT to react that way and to willingly submit even if he hates it.

I won't spoil the ending which was great but I loved Angus and Paddy together - and that little bit and the sexual tension were so high I could not put this down once it hit its stride - which, BTW, it really doesn't do until about 30%. It still got five stars because I grew to care about these characters, to want for them, to feel the need and the frustration. Great world and I cannot wait to read more stories!
