A reunion snippet…

Hello Snippetteers!

This week’s snippet is from a brand new story in a brand new series. Elliott House: Quin is also part of a multi-author giveaway, so stick around to the end and I’ll tell you how to get it free!

This snip is from a reunion scene almost fifteen years in the making. It’s a tad more than six sentences, but two of them are single words. ❤

 

Jeremy pushed off from the tree and took one step closer to Quin. After hesitating, he took another, his eyes locked on Quin’s. Jeremy’s lovely hazel eyes were wide and full of heat, and something else. Hope? Surprise? Normally, Quin prided himself on being able to read body language and expressions, to pick up on signals his clients gave so he could better help them. But he couldn’t read Jeremy. His frustration threatened to spill out between them with inappropriate force. Before Jeremy could take a third step, and stand inside Quin’s personal space, Quin stepped back.

Elliott House: Quin

Henry “Quin” Quinones made a horrible mistake when he was seventeen. The next day, his secret high school boyfriend had vanished. Quin thought his bad judgement caused Jeremy to abandon him, and he’s been hurt, angry, and alone since that day.

When Jeremy heard his secret high school boyfriend had died in a tragic accident, he ran away. Lost and grieving, he tried to create a life far from that disaster, in a world without the boy he loved.

They both had it wrong.

Fifteen years later, Quin has worked hard to make a life for himself as a social worker at the Elliott Foundation House. He loves his job helping LGBTQIA+ youth get off the streets, and he’s living on-site to escape the loneliness that defines his off-hours.

When Quin gets a text from Jeremy out of the blue, he almost doesn’t respond. But maybe if he hears Jeremy’s side of the story, he can finally leave the past behind and move on.

Can the truth be enough to heal fifteen years of pain, and give them a second chance at forever?

A back door snippet…

Hello Snippetteers!

This week’s snippet is from a brand new short erotic Romance that’s free through July 15th! Read to the end & find out how to get your copy!

Back Door Stories: Joey is first in a spin-off series of bite-sized erotic romances in the Buchanan House world centering on the back door hookup culture at the camp. Series readers might recognize Joey from Safe House, but will probably like him more here. ❤ The story is all from Joey’s point of view, and the first line is his.

 

“Can I bum one of those?”

He took a drag of his smoke, lighting up full smirking lips. I listened to him exhale as he slowly emerged from the shadows. The fairy lights caught on his white tank, illuminating a lusciously-muscled body. He leaned a bulky forearm on the railing, dangling his smoke from long graceful fingers and absently flicking ash into the flower bed.

“If that’s what you’re looking to put in your mouth, sure.” He scoffed, as though he knew what I was there for.

Back Door Stories: Joey

I’m a stone cold player. One night a week.

Six nights, I take care of the elderly residents of a care home. Thursdays, I crash welcome parties at a swanky LGBTQ hotel near my small town. My heart got broken once and it wrecked me. Now I get a happy ending every Thursday night.

Guests enter through the front door of Buchanan House and a hookup culture thrives around back.

Partially thanks to me.

When the weekly welcome party doesn’t pan out, I knock on the back door of a second-floor room. Sometimes I’m disappointed, but most of the time the door opens on the kind of anonymous encounter I live for.

One Thursday night I meet a man who changes everything.

A slightly uncomfortable snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & Happy Pride Month!

I know it’s been Pride Month for over two weeks, but since I won’t be attending any in-person events this summer I’m going to milk this month for all it’s worth.

❤️ 🧡 💛 💚 💙 💜

This week’s snippet is from the Buchanan House series epilogue, Anniversary Weekend (which is now available separately from the boxset :)). The first line is Derek’s, and this is a good intro to the conflict the guys face in this short.

 

“We should keep this place as a hookup spot and leave it at that.”

Tim stilled and tried not to give anything away. Judging by Derek’s quiet snickers, he failed.

“We’ve all used the boathouse for…privacy. Sure, make it look nice, keep it in good repair, but don’t let the guests in.”

“Well…”

A Found Family snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & Happy Caturday!

This week I’m snipping from Nesting Habits because it’s featured the Family & Found Family Promotion with some of my favorite authors!! Read on after the snip for details on how you can find the other books in the promotion!

My snip is exactly six sentences long! Those are the rules (rules I made! *lol*) but I’m usually not a stickler for obeying them. It’s pretty obvious what’s happened before this snip so I’ll just say that Lee and Phil are in Phil’s Jeep.

 

“Thanks for lunch,” Lee said, and turned to look at the hot guy in the car with him. The hot guy who’d just gone down on him a few yards away from the flipping trail, for shit’s sake. The guy who’d made him crazy before he ever touched him.

Phil smiled and turned his head, hands tight on the wheel. It was an honest-to-goodness full-blown smile, and it hit Lee like warm rays of sunshine after months of nothing but rain. “Find something good on the radio?”

Nesting Habits

Phil Brask spends his days in the basement of his mentor’s Victorian home, converting legal documents into electronic format. When the pipe feeding the water heater bursts, Lee Redding arrives in the plumber’s truck and draws Phil away from the narrow focus of his computer and camera lens.

Lee gives Phil hope for a life beyond the walls he’s constructed using the nesting habits of migratory birds and dense legal files, a guided tour through a world filled with romance and music…maybe even family. But there’s a reason Phil retreated behind those walls, why he panics at a simple touch.

Lee has a good life—working with his uncle and on his mother’s farm, playing bass in a horrible metal band, and hooking up when he pleases—but he’s always suspected something was missing. When he meets the hot photographer with the icy-blue eyes, he knows exactly what that something is.

Phil isn’t like other guys, but neither is Lee beneath his carefree exterior. Maybe Lee’s the perfect guy to show Phil that everything doesn’t have to be done the hard way and “home” isn’t a four-letter word.

Now available at Apple Books, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Amazon!

Another #RJMarchMadness snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & Happy Caturday!

Today I’m snipping from the first book in my Buchanan House series because it’s featured in a backlist event with some of my favorite authors! Stick around after the snip for details, there’s still time to enter. ❤

This is from the scene where our hero Eric watches Tim leave the ocean after surfing. At first Eric and BFF Nathan had watched Tim through binoculars, trying to figure out what the dark blob was bobbing between the waves. After Tim gets close enough so they can see it’s him, Nathan encourages Eric’s attraction to the hot handyman.

 

“Mm-mm-mmm. That is a tasty dish.” Nathan bumped his shoulder into Eric’s.

Before Eric could respond to Nathan’s teasing, Tim unzipped the top of his wetsuit. Eric stood, transfixed, as Tim peeled the top half from his body and let it hang around his waist like the bib on a pair of overalls. It was like watching a live-action ad for Men’s Fitness. Tim’s upper body was sculpted to lean perfection—he looked strong and athletic, but not bulky. His hair sent drops of water sliding down his chest, and Eric thought about licking the salt water from his warm skin, peeling the rest of the wetsuit away, and—

Buchanan House ~ USA Today Must-Read Romance!

Eric Allen and his bestie buy a neglected hotel on the scenic Oregon coast to fulfill their middle-school dreams of co-owning a B&B. The building is in decent shape but in order to turn Buchanan House into the gay resort of their dreams, it’s going to need work.

Tim Tate is a skilled carpenter with many hidden talents, and a body that could grace the pages of a fitness magazine. When he and Eric meet, it’s mutual lust at first sight. Despite the intense attraction, both men are hesitant to fully out themselves by acting on it. But when they give in, it’s obvious that they’ve found something special—and not only in bed.

Before Eric can be free to love the gorgeous handyman they have to make it through the July4th grand opening. With rain that won’t stop and a meddling brother intent on wreaking havoc, can the holiday still go off with a bang?

An #RJMarchMadness snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & welcome to the weekend!

Today I’m snipping from the first book in my Buchanan House series because it’s featured in a backlist event with a ton of amazing authors! Stick around after the snip for details. 😉

This is from the scene where our hero Eric meets the love interest for the first time. Nathan is Eric’s BFF, and also the “he” at the beginning.

 

He leaned close and whispered in Eric’s ear, “Oh, em, gee. He can handyman me anytime.”

“Handyman isn’t a verb, Nathan.”

“It is in his case.” Nathan made a growling noise and winked. “But you saw him first, so hands off.”

“I didn’t say—”

“You never say. So I’m saying it for you.”

A dreamy, half-faraway snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & welcome to the weekend! I hope you’re staying warm (or cool, whatever applies 😊).

This week I’m sharing another snip from Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two. Wes and Eoin are still in the speakeasy, and Eoin just asked what happened to make Wes wonder how kinksters figure out their fetishes. This snip is a little longer than 6 sentences for context and swoon-factor.

 

“Oh. Well. It was an ordinary thing so I’m not sure if it even qualifies.”

“A kink doesn’t have to be exotic. Some folx like to be spanked lightly with an open hand.” Eoin watched for any sign that was West’s kink but saw nothing to indicate it was. You’re baked, and deluded into thinking you can read his lovely mind. “Or it can be as simple as a blindfold or having your wrists held in place during sex.”

That’s it. Restricted movement.

West’s pupils dilated and the skin at his throat flushed a pretty pink. He got that dreamy half-faraway look in his dark eyes again too. For a moment Eoin was tempted to lean in and kiss those luscious full lips, but a heartbeat later he wondered if he was out of his mind.

Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two

How do you know if you’re kinky?

Wes Roberts always thought his need for adventure was only a desire to see the world. After starting a job at a private kink club it becomes obvious he’s not as vanilla as he thought. Less surprising is his attraction to the tall flirty redhead he meets his first night.

Eoin McBride, former Army brat and self-described drifter, relies on his kink and the club that has become his home. Eoin is stunned when the lovely younger man returns his interest. But that’s nothing compared to how he feels when Wes approaches him for guidance in the exploration of his new-found interest in bondage.

If Eoin can stick around he just might be the perfect man to help Wes discover his kink, and maybe even find the love they both crave.

Warnings: this book contains sexually explicit scenes, depictions of the effects of PTSD, descriptions of injuries sustained while in the military, legal drug use, off-page death of a minor character, and the scattering of ashes without a permit.

A questioning snippet…

Hello Snippetteers & Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend! ❤

This week I’m snippetting from my new release, Satin Sheets, Kink Awakenings: Book Two. The series follows men who don’t know they’re kinky through a sexy discovery phase and to their HEAs. Satin Sheets is an angsty and steamy Romance with age gap and a large dose of hurt/comfort.

This is from a scene in Eoin’s POV. He and Wes are in the cannabis speakeasy in the club, and Wes has just asked how someone figures out that they’re kinky.

 

“What seems to work for most people I’ve talked to is to explore what makes you happy, the things that give you peace. It’s not always about sex but it can be. When you have a feeling that something is speaking to you, slow down and listen. You might be surprised by what you learn about yourself. I was. I never expected that I’d get such deep satisfaction from giving another person what they need to be happy, to find peace, even if only for a little while.”

I’m such a lightweight. Two hits and I’m a kinky philosopher.
