Sally sent cold shivers up my spine with this one!

My good friend Sally Bend (@bibrary) has scared the shit out of me again with her latest book – Fear, Love and Broken Things.

If not for the fact that I have read her work in the past, I probably would never have gotten past the preview.  The talk of bugs and vermin crawling around had my skin crawl just as much as her main character Caitlin – although for different reasons.

This shorter piece tells a very difficult story about Caitlin who is in an abusive relationship and had the courage to get away from her husband.  With little more than the clothes on her back, she finds “safety” in a filthy hotel room to try and recover enough to contemplate her next move.

The story has a very skin crawling set of twists and turns that will have Caitlin and the reader looking over their shoulder and jumping out of their beds.  Long time abuse has her remembering the demands and instructions of her husband and at the same time Caitlin finds the liberating joy of defying him from a far.  Along the way she finds the courage to reach out to a friend and confide in someone new.  The chance meeting empowered Caitlin as she began defying her husband’s memory and did unspeakable things that would have resulted in devastating pain, but instead armored her as she continued fighting through the physical and emotional scars.  What she never expected was to find the solution in someone so “unique.”

I always like stories that make me think, ask questions and leave me wanting more.  If you’re like me… this story is for you.

M. C. Questgend

Born in 1971, M.C. Questgend traveled the country with his parents as a military brat. Settling in Texas where he was first introduced to alternative lifestyles, he was able to finish high school and continue his new "hobby" in college. After college, he and "she" returned to start a family, but the strain of his "secret" was too much for his now ex-wife. Married a second time was not the answer, so M.C. has transferred the stress to the pen and keyboard. Writing erotic stories - some loosely based on his and "her" life as well as stories involving aspects of the LGBT community, a community and lifestyle he has come to privately embrace. M.C. Questgend is a pen name used to protect his privacy and anonymity. The intent was to write stories that entertain, inspire and motivate - which are as much sensual and heartwarming as they are sexual and explicit. Want to know more about M.C.?
