Description: Chad leads a quiet life centered on his work as a university librarian...until the day he sees the cute guy in the history class he's auditing. Later, Jace comes on strong when he visits the library, first asking Chad for information, then for a date.
But Chad has no idea what he's getting into with the ponytailed, bracelet-wearing mechanic. All of his printed-out porn and slightly kinky fantasies never prepared him for chainmail and historical re-enactment.
Chad is about to get a living history lesson he'll never forget...

"4 Stars!...If I were to pick just one word to describe Chain-Male, it would be kinky. Who knew it was possible to have so much fun with metalwork and dressing up as Norsemen?...The authors did a wonderful job with Chad and Jace...The whole dressing up in Norse costume and attending events where Jace sold his jewelery were so vivid I could imagine myself there, strolling amid the various merchandise, bowing to the newly elected crown prince...For something a little different, with plenty of kink, a hint of bondage and a lot of loving, you can't go far wrong than to wrap yourself around a copy of Chain-Male.--British Bull Dog, Rainbow Reviews
"4.5 Stars!... I liked that there wasn't any insta-love in this story, but a believable steady build of a new relationship. The slow burn of passion between Chad and Jace and their tentative merge into kink kept me turning pages. Really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes view of the renaissance role-play community. A fun and interesting read!"--StaceyR, Reviews By Jessewave
Chad glanced down at his shirt and saw he was still wearing his library nametag. Chad Jacobs, Interlibrary Loan. "Guess I'm obvious." He jumped when Jace's bracelet clanked on the table.
"You like this?" Jace pulled back his sleeve.
"I love it. Where'd you get it?"
"Made it. Caught you staring a time or two like you were figuring it out."
Chad swallowed hard. He wasn't sure he wanted Jace to know so much about him already. He wanted to ask if the bracelet was heavy, if Jace liked heavy things around his wrists.
Instead, he said, "Yeah. It's different. I never saw one like that before."
Jace undid a hook and laid the bracelet out. "It's not hard. It's just a Byzantine chain."
"Not hard?" Chad stared at the intertwined links. Two links, flanked by links in a vee that hooked into another ring with another encircling the vee. It looked incredibly hard. He wasn't sure he could figure out how it went together. He handed the bracelet back. "It's hot on you."
Jace wrapped it around Chad's wrist. "It's hot on you, too." He fastened it off and stroked Chad's inner arm, sending little tingles through his veins. "Bracelets aren't all I make."
"Really? What else?"
"I don't do full armor. I like jewelry better. Earrings. Necklaces. The coifs the ladies like to wear." Jace leaned in close and whispered, "Sexy kink stuff."
Chad gulped the end of his coffee to hide his shock at having his fondest hopes for the date answered. He took a breath and screwed up his courage. "What kind of kink stuff?" he whispered, barely managing the words.
Jace traced a finger through some spilled sugar. "Chain mail bras with minimal cups. G-strings. Cock rings." He looked up. "It sells."
"I want to see."
