We’re so pleased to welcome author Z. Allora on the tour for her latest release, Secured and Free. She’s sharing a couple of snippets from the book with us, and there’s also a giveaway, so be sure to check out the entry details below.
Greetings! I want to thank The Novel Approach for having me on their site. Lisa Horan is amazingly patient with my lack of skill with my magical typewriter (I think everyone else calls it a computer) which I greatly appreciate! So, it seems fitting that I would write a blog on the computer/phone apps featured in my latest release: Secured and Free for The Novel Approach.
To celebrate the release of Secured and Free I’ll be giving away 3 e-books, 2 audiobooks of Lock and Key (Book #1 of Entwined Dreams) and a $20 gift card to Dreamspinner Press. Details below. Winners will be announced June 5th.
Excerpt w/Pet App
(Orion is trying to avoid talking about his disastrous night with his best friend and roommate Xander.)
“What’s to tell? Nothing happened.”
Xander shook his head and pulled out his phone. He whispered into it, and Orion got a chirp on his cell.
He glared but opened the message and played the video. A picture of Xander’s sugar glider, Nippet—named after a baby Ewok in Return of the Jedi—started talking to him in a morphed version of Xander’s voice.
Excerpt w/ Sad Cat Diary
He clicked Pause on an amusing video and answered his lover’s call. “Hey, Marc.”
He’d been with Marc Sadir for six years, and living with him for ve. They had met at Entwined and fallen hard. Their needs didn’t quite match, so they maintained an open relationship. But that didn’t mean Marc wasn’t everything to Hunter. It simply meant they were realistic, and he didn’t want Marc to accept less.
Marc purred into the phone, “Hiya, sexy. You already at Entwined?”
“Yup. Oh, later remind me to show you the Sad Cat Diary.” He still smiled at the cat’s perspective of a human’s reality.
“Another Facebook find?”
“Yeah, a YouTube video. I just…. It’s funny. You have to see it.” Hunter chuckled again.
Pretties: I want you to see the video. Even if you already have seen the mournful cats it’ll probably still crack you up! (Make sure you come back to enter the giveaway & to hear more about Secured and Free.)

About the Book
Entwined Dreams: Book Two
An abusive Dom robbed Orion Gordon of his love of BDSM, destroying his confidence and leaving him unsure he’ll ever find peace through submission to another. Still, deep inside, his longing continues.
Marcus Sadir loves Hunter Dixon, yet can’t be the one thing Hunter truly desires: a sub to control. And Hunter can’t find satisfaction in the sadistic aspects of the BDSM lifestyle, while Marcus thrives on inflicting and sharing pain. When Marcus convinces Hunter they should find a third on a permanent basis, they discover Orion might be the key to bridging their differences and joining them on a deeper level.
But they must help Orion move past his trauma enough for him to enjoy new facets of BDSM and kink again. Their journey toward becoming whole—together—won’t be without challenges. Can Orion trust enough to try again?
