Please say hello to Xenia Melzer and
A Dom And His Warrior
Club Whisper #3
Leeland Drake and Jonathan White are a committed BDSM couple and have just moved in together. Leeland has only one year left in college, and everything seems perfect… until Leeland’s uncle asks him to stand in for an injured UFC fighter.
Leeland wants to help his uncle, but he remembers all too well from his years competing in martial arts how strenuous life as an athlete can be. He doesn’t want to risk his relationship with Jonathan. After some discussion, they decide Leeland will go pro for a year.
As if the training and strict diet weren’t bad enough, the pressure skyrockets when Leeland encounters homophobic fighter Tommy Adams—especially when they end up facing each other in the championship
Between the bigoted rants of his opponent, the scrutiny of the media, the pressure from his sponsor, and a fire in his uncle’s gym, Leeland is close to breaking down. Only Jonathan’s support and love keep him focused enough to set foot in the octagon once more—and maybe even walk away a winner.

Food for Champions
An athlete’s diet is torture.
Before I go deeper into this, I have to make a confession: I love food. Especially the kind that clogs up your arteries, thickens your blood, damages your teeth, eats away at your bones, and forces your liver to put in some extra hours. You know, the good stuff like pasta with a thick sauce, tiramisu, mousse au chocolat, cakes, fries… Okay, okay, I think you get the gist. Back to the blog…
In my youth I had several friends who did sports seriously, one of them even on Olympic level, so I had some memories about food restrictions during training and competing. To be on the safe side, I researched an MMA fighter’s diet and what I found was pure horror – at least for me. It also gave me a wonderful red thread of comic relief for the entire book, so there’s that.
