Amelia Swan, author of 'For Claire (For Dylan Part 2),' reflects on turning 30

My 30th birthday is a little over a year away, and For Claire got me thinking about how I’d like to spend the day. I don’t think I need it to be too different from how I spend any other birthday I’ve celebrated the past few years.

I like to start off the day with some hot yoga at the studio I’m a member at. Ideally my husband would be with me. Given that my 30th birthday falls on a national holiday, he’ll be home from work and likely able to join me. Every year for my birthday, my husband books me an appointment at a local spa and I definitely am looking forward to part of my celebration.

My husband and I celebrate our birthdays with our favorite food. I usually opt for a light dinner, like veggie sushi or salad, so I can indulge in something sweet afterward. Usually we pick up ice cream because it’s easy, but I wouldn’t mind eating a little cake too. There is a specialty vegan bakery in Rutherford, New Jersey called Sweet Avenue Bake Shop that makes incredible cake. Maybe I can convince my husband to pick me up something from there!

Otherwise, I’m just looking forward to spending the day with my family. I’ll go for a nice walk with my dog and have some lap time with my cat. My husband and I will watch a bunch of TV and maybe some professional wrestling too.

We like to make a big deal out of birthdays in our family, so my 30th would be no exception. I’m looking forward to it!

For Claire

by Amelia Swan



Claire is dreading her 30th birthday…until she finds out Jay is flying out to help her and Dylan celebrate. Armed with a new dress and a carefree attitude, Claire is ready for whatever the big night may bring.

It’s been three months since the last time Jay met up with the married couple he’s grown so fond of. When he finds out Claire’s birthday is coming up, he jumps at the opportunity to see them again.

Jay and Dylan are hoping to give Claire a birthday she’ll never forget, but she ends up getting so much more…

What would make Claire’s 30th birthday a memorable event? A night in bed with her husband and their lover.

Read an excerpt:
I looked at Jay. With his full beard, broad chest, and tall stature, he was all man. Jay was powerfully sexy, and I couldn’t wait to watch him take control once we got home.

My eyes drifted back to Dylan, my beautiful husband. His high cheek bones and lean musculature were enough to take my breath away, and they usually did on a nightly basis. I couldn’t wait to share him with a man we both loved and trusted.

I sat up straight and pushed my chair out an inch from the table. “I’m ready to go.” I looked back and forth between the two of them, surprised they hadn’t caught the urgency in my tone. “Like right now.”

We hadn’t received the check yet, but that didn’t stop both men from digging into their wallets and throwing a few bills apiece onto the table. I knew Jay and Dylan well enough to be sure they left more than enough to cover the bill and tip the waitress exceptionally well. The three of us stood and hastily pushed in our chairs, hoping to hurry out of the restaurant while trying to look inconspicuous.
