It’s the Leather World’s Darkest Secret – Love From Amsterdam to San Francisco, from New England to Seattle, from Chicago to Los Angeles, these eleven stories explore the love leather men feel for each and for their tribe. The exhilaration of first love, the desolation of widowhood, the enduring male friendship, the mature love of an established Master/slave couple, and the spiritual rebirth that love offers the wounded — these are all parts of leather men’s lives, and they are also the parts of our stories that are seldom told. * Twice widowed and reluctant to open his heart again, a Daddy finds happiness with a young, local rocker. * A young Dutchman finds love in submission to the handsome Jew he and his family are hiding in their attic during the World War Two. * A leather top falls in love with another man’s boy, carrying a torch for the young man whose very name is unknown to him. * Phone sex leads to complications, and finally to a young man’s proper place – kneeling at his lover’s booted feet. * A jaded leather man falls in love for the first time – with another Master and his slave. * After a night of sex with a stranger he met on line, a widowed and guarded bottom suddenly finds that he’s once again open to the possibility of love. * A brain injury at first spells disaster for two men in love, resulting in erratic behavior in one, and anger in the other – until a second knock in the head changes everything. Gathered from stories written over the last 20 years, many of them written for Drummer, David May offers this collection for the hopeless romantic in each of us, whether in leather or latex, who still believes love can be found at the end of a whip.
