Hello and welcome to my snippet!
Last week I said I might have some news soon and this week it’s official–the final installment in the Buchanan House series will be published next summer! If all goes well *knocks wood* Dreamspinner will release Art House in August or September of 2018! I’m super excited about sharing Chase & Garrett’s story. It brings the series back to its beginnings (which is a hint :)), while tying a few things up with a pretty bow. I hope it’s a satisfying finale!
In the meantime I’m going to share snippets from the series. Last week’s was from book one, so here’s something from book two: Pride Weekend (it’s short, hot, and free!). This is a tiny bit longer than 6 sentences for context. I could’ve chosen something shorter but I’m going with a theme here–the ways different characters see the house itself.
My suitcase had wheels, but it wouldn’t be rolling on the gravel. Glad I’d packed light—because how many changes of clothes does one man need for three days, even if it is Pride weekend—I carried my things to Buchanan House. Clever. I’d liked the sound of it even before I read the article that practically said it was a gay, landlocked version of The Love Boat.
It didn’t seem grander in person, which was a little surprising considering the pictures online had been almost unassuming. Rustic and homey was more like it—a long, low building with only two floors, surrounded by trees, trees, and more trees. I like the outdoors as much as the next guy, but it was a relief to hear Madonna over the sounds of the ocean when I got close to the open front doors.
Thanks for reading!

I sympathize…being a bit of an urbanite myself. 🙂
Haha, and Adam really isn’t outdoorsy at all and only went because of the whole Love Boat deal. 🙂
I’m really loving the descriptions of the place.
Now I want to go to Buchanan House! 🙂 Loved this.
Love that description of Buchanan House—gay, landlocked version of The Love Boat. 😀❤️
Yes, wheelie cases on gravel are the pits. But I loved how that little detail gave away his character before I’d properly met him. 🙂
I love the description.
