Beauty Bound by Meg Pritchard - Release Day Guest Post

Grim and Sinister Delight

Beauty Bound is my book in the Grim and Sinister Delights series. It’s book ten in the series and is loosely based on Beauty and the Beast.

When Keegan's vacation takes a turn for the worse, will he be the same when it's finally over?

Keegan Sinclair was looking forward to summer break and a long weekend away with his friends. Keen to get the party started, Keegan arrived at their campsite first, giving him the opportunity to set up his tent for him and his girlfriend and plan their nights together. Before Keegan could reach the campsite, he was taken hostage, and held against his will.

With this strange man holding him captive, Keegan has no choice but to do what he wants: whether he likes it or not. The longer he’s with this man, the more Keegan begins to question whether he wants to stay or go. When the opportunity arises, Keegan has a decision to make.

Does he return home to the life he knows, or stay with the man who has altered him forever?

Beauty Bound is a standalone MM gay romance with wonderful dark twists, enough heat to have you panting and a HEA.

Grim and Sinister Delights is a dark romance series based on classic fairy tales and stories. You will find standalone tales of gay romance that range in darkness and kinks. If you dare to take the challenge, read them all to find yourself lost in a classic that you know. These stories are for adult readers and may contain ambiguous themes.

Where do you like to write?

One of the places I like to write in is Ikea. There’s free coffee--mmm coffee--and I can sit by the window and people watch if I’m stuck on a scene. I like that fact I’m away from home too.

When I’m writing at home, I tend to get distracted by jobs that need doing. The laundry, or dishes, or hoovering. Or I’ll think I can watch TV and write at the same time, which is a huge no-no for me, but I keep doing it! I’ll learn one day lol.

If I’m somewhere else then I can sit down, relax, and let the characters talk and the words flow.


The door slammed open and Keeg sat up, watching warily as the man undid his chain then pulled him up. “Shower time, bitch. I think you’ve had enough time to realize I’m in charge.”

Keeg didn’t respond but let the other man take him to the bathroom. He was shoved into the shower stall, and he jumped when the cold water rained over him. He turned away, giving the man his back then began to wash the come from his body.

He gritted his teeth, ignoring the dried crusty feel until it was all gone. A bottle of shampoo appeared, and Keeg took it and washed his hair, then his body. The water turned off, and he was dragged out of the shower and roughly dried.

Keeg tried to ignore the man’s hands on his body, staring at the wall ahead until he spun around to face the sink. “Teeth now.”

“I need to use the toilet.”

“You should have done that in the shower.”

Keeg gritted his teeth so hard his jaw ached. “Please,” he muttered.

The man chuckled darkly and nudged him toward the toilet. “Do what you need to.”

Keeg tried to ignore him as he did what he needed to but trying to go was hard when someone was watching you. When he was finished and cleaned up, he was dragged up and pushed in front on the sink once more. “Teeth. Now.”

Keegan brushed his teeth then let the man drag him back to his room, his cell. The man pushed him to the floor and leaned back on the closed door, pulling his dick free from his jeans.

“Let’s try this again. Do what I want and you’ll get out quicker.”

“How do I know you’re telling the truth?” Keeg stared at the long, thick dick the red head wet with precome, and glanced away. No, he couldn’t do it. He just couldn’t.

“You don’t, do you?” the man whispered.

Keeg shook his head. “No.”

He heard the deep sigh and refused to look up. “Do you want me to piss all over you again? I don’t have a problem doing it and leaving you to stink all night. Your choice, Keegan.”


The man stroked his dick, the sound filling the room. “Come and suck it then. Make me come.”

the author

What can I say about me? I have two boys who keep me on my toes and a cat who adopted us. She walked in one day and hasn’t left. We might be getting a dog too. Who knows?

I love to read about men in love. Flawed, but strong men, who need some TLC and find their happy ending. I love to write about those same type of men too, sometimes with added kink! I also love to read horrors, thrillers and crime novels.

When I’m not trying to keep my boys in line, or writing about hot sexy men, I like to work on my allotment. I also like to read, to take walks in the countryside, and visit historical places. Recently, we went to Stonehenge and Avebury. It was an amazing experience.
