New Voices: Ryan
Slave Hunt has ten narrators, so on this tour I’ll be introducing you to the new POV characters—love interests and friends from the original four books who are now getting a chance to narrate.
Today, I’m introducing you to Ryan. We met Ryan in Pain Slut. The very short, belligerent Subs Club infiltrator who developed the hots for giant goofball jock Kamen. In Manties in a Twist, he’d moved in with Kamen, and their mutual love of costumes and role-play led them to some kinks they’d never considered.
Throughout the series, Ryan sometimes requires checking. He tends to express himself stridently, and to occasionally disregard the feelings of others to make his point. Kamen describes Ryan as “speaking in shouty caps.”
In Ryan’s Slave Hunt chapters, I wanted to capture, not just that brusqueness, but the way it both masks and highlights the borderline aggressive love Ryan feels toward Kamen. On the surface, he’s griping about being in the woods and how he never wanted to do the hunt in the first place—but what he really means is that he just wants to find Kamen and pound the living fuck out of him.
Which seems like a legit goal.
My favorite thing about writing Ryan was probably the contrast between the way he and Kamen express their obsession with one another. Kamen’s got that golden retriever-like enthusiasm for Ryan, but Ryan’s enthusiasm is tinged with an almost angry energy that was really fun to capture. He’s clearly taken to heart that study about why we feel aggression toward cute things.

Thirty people. Two hours. Only the strong will survive.
When Riddle decides to put on a slave hunt, the Subs Club is on board. Tops hunting bottoms in the woods with paintball guns? Yes. Captives strung up on whipping posts, at the mercy of their captors? Hell yes. But on the morning of the hunt, nothing’s going according to plan. Miles and Drix are at odds over Miles’s reluctance to move in together. Dave is determined to show up D, who thinks Dave won’t last two minutes in the woods. Gould finds himself torn between obeying his master’s orders and living out a longtime fantasy. And Kamen inadvertently becomes a double agent when he aligns himself with two different parties.
By the end of the hunt, alliances will be forged and broken, loyalties will be tested, relationships will be strengthened…and someone will barrel roll. Narrated by ten different characters, Slave Hunt tells the story of two hours in the woods that will change everyone forever. Or at least, remind them that love is the greatest victory of all.
About The Subs Club
After the death of their friend Hal at the hands of an irresponsible dom, submissive friends Dave, Kamen, Miles, and Gould band together to form the Subs Club—an organization seeking to expose dangerous local doms. The club slowly evolves as romances blossom, loyalties are tested, and tensions mount in a community already struggling for unity in the wake of Hal’s death.
From domestic discipline to knife play to fashion paraphilia, and from family drama to new jobs to first loves, the members of the Subs Club explore life’s kinks inside and outside of the bedroom as they attempt to let go of the past and move forward.
The Subs Club series is available from Riptide Publishing: http://riptidepublishing.com/titles/universe/subs-club
