About the Author

THE HIGHWAYMEN – An Adventurous Love Story is a change of pace for Alex Ironrod – his first BDSM historical novel. It follows his very successful trilogy of LEATHER MASTERS’ and slaves’ tales – SUBMISSION, DOMINATION, and OBSESSION which was published last year. He has also had his two collections of Leather short stories in print – THE IRONROD CHRONICLES PART I and PART II. He welcomes all comments on the results to date at alexironrod@aol.com. Details of all his books can be found on his web site www.alexironrod.com and are available from Amazon.com, or your local bookstore. Alex is the pen and play name of a mature Leatherman, who grew up in the north of England and has lived for many years in Southern California. His boots and leather fetishes go back to his teenage years, but only recently has he started to use them as a spur for stories. Now semi-retired, he relishes life as an author, a working theatre actor/director, a researcher, and a member of several charitable boards. He still enjoys riding occasionally, both Western and English, after many years as a rider/owner. Most importantly, he continues his wonderful relationships with his partner Hank and his new boy butch, as well as enjoying the camaraderie and support of friends across the world. He’s still working on his Leather topping skills with the active support of a number of generous bottoms and has switched to practicing with a new cat o’nine tails. At present Alex is collaborating with a well-known porn star on his autobiography and is working on an historical romance novel about two young knights who go on a crusade with Richard the Lionheart who was probably gay. He hopes readers and friends will stick around for these and many more. He plans to catch up with all of you at the next MAL, CLAW, IML, International LeatherSIR/boy and International bootblack Conference, Dore Alley, and Folsom Weekend in full Leather and, of course, his Dehners.

More About the Author


ALEX IRONROD is the pen and play name of a mature Leatherman, who grew up in the North of England and has lived for many years in Southern California, principally Los Angeles and Palm Springs. His leather and boot fetishes go back many years, but only now has he used them and his worldwide experiences, for writing fiction and gay BDSM fiction at that.
CAGES - CATHEDRAL CITY is the second novel in a new series set in the area around Palm Springs - the Coachella Valley today. The first was the popular DECEPTION - PALM SPRINGS. The two young heroes, Mark Farrell and Dan Fortunato, have become private investigators professionally as well as Leather partners privately. After several years as homicide detectives in the LAPD [LEATHER NIGHTS and LEATHER DAYS], they have moved on to solving kinky mysteries in the Desert Cities - RANSOM-RANCHO MIRAGE and PASSION-PALM DESERT are yet to come. And there may be many more - as many as there are cities in the Coachella Valley.
This new series follows the great success of his first MASTERS and slaves trilogy SUBMISSION, DOMINATION and OBSESSION [finalist for the fiction prize of the International Leather Coalition 2010].
Alex also likes to vary the time and place of his stories - RED KNIGHT RISING tells the adventures of two gay English knights who sign-up to go on crusade in the Middle Ages. THE HIGHWAYMEN takes readers into the bawdy and dangerous world of 1750s London and then on to "the American colonies". He also has a collection of varied short stories the IRONROD CHRONICLES PARTS I and II.
Details of all his books can be found on his website www.alexironrod.com. In addition to giving readings from his novels in Los Angeles, Palm Springs and San Francisco he has taught workshops and classes on various aspects of the Leather lifestyle and appeared on panels about gay erotic fiction at such events as Greater Los Angeles Writers Workshop, MAL, CLAW, International Leather Sir/boy, and the Desert Fetish Authority.
Now semiretired, he enjoys life as a writer, a working theatre director/actor, and a researcher. He still enjoys riding horses occasionally, both Western and English, after many years as an owner/rider, as well as working out at the gym.
Most importantly, he values his relationship with his partner Hank, with butch and boymichael, and the camaraderie and support of men and women around the world.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great story, told elegantly, and the kinky parts fit in with the story so well that they actually help one understand the characters more fully. I don't consider it a one-handed book, but a story well written by a great storyteller who has done his homework and it is also very sexy! I enjoy period pieces and porn and this book includes both, and overall is a great read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This historical novel evolves over two decades and two continents. It was a quick read because I couldn't put it down. Sir Michael Taplow leads a life of love, lust, leather and danger. His story begins as he encounters Captain Jamey Todhunter. This life altering episode sets him on a different course as an apprentice "Gentleman of The Highway". Michael learns his new trade well under the hands of his Master. Their ensuing adventures in Georgian London will keep you firmly involved. The smell of leather sex is intoxicating. Great pain and sacrifice by Michael saves Jamey and sends them to colonial Boston. There they build a new life. The author develops great secondary characters in both halves of the novel. Some make appearances in both parts. Love has a fine line between pleasure and pain and sometimes that love forces you to make the ulimate sacrifice. Highly recommended.
