A bonding snippet…

RSMMmedHola Snippetteers!

Hope you’re having a great day, where ever you are! This weekend I’ll be working on edits for an urban fantasy that’s due out next year and am still writing BH#6, which will be done by the end of the month if i have to forgo sleep for the whole last week!

 

I’m sharing from Safe House (Buchanan House: Book Four). Kyle cooked dinner at his father’s house and they’re having a rare conversation that hasn’t descended into an argument.

It’s over six sentences, but when I tried to find something to post I ended up reading a few pages and forgetting to watch out for a good snippet. And then I did it again. *lol* It’s been a little while since i’ve been able to fully participate in Rainbow Snippets so i hope you’ll all forgive me for the long snippet if i bribe you with comments on yours. 😀

 

“I would like to go to the beach retreat—Buchanan House.”

He’s been thinking about saying that for a while. “Why?”

“Why not? I haven’t taken a vacation in twenty-two years. It’s right on the beach, and I want to support your friends.”

“They’re doing okay, Dad.”

“Would I have to be gay to go?”

“No.” Kyle tried to think of a reason his father shouldn’t go to Buchanan House, but he couldn’t come up with anything that didn’t sound offensive in one way or another.

“So if I make a reservation, it’s okay with you?”

Kyle squirmed under his father’s gaze. “You don’t need my permission or approval.”

“No. But if you’d rather I didn’t go….”

“How about if I call and see what kind of events are coming up and when they have room?” It took a little effort, but Kyle managed not to drop his gaze from his father’s. It wasn’t easy to think about the things that went on at Buchanan House—everything he’d personally done there—with his father staring right at him.

“We could go together!” Ken Shimoda had rarely looked so delighted, so Kyle didn’t have the heart to deny him. If they took a weekend at the coast, it would be a bonding experience. Not exactly the venue Kyle had envisioned for doing that kind of thing with his father, but there were worse places.

“Um… sure. Let me work on it.”

What happens next…

RSMMmedHola Snippetteers!

I’m finally back on my laptop (after a full backup + OS rollback), but it’s a temporary solution. *fingers crossed the last snags are fixed tomorrow*

Safe House (Buchanan House: Book Four) is releasing on Monday! I’m excited and a little nervous, as usual, and will be spending Sunday trying not to obsess about it. I’m sure that will be easy. *lol*

This snippet picks up right where last week’s left off. (Read it here.)

They stood and looked at each other for what felt like a long time. Kyle’s eyes seemed a little wide. Either he was surprised, or….


This isn’t appropriate. I’ll just—


Before Bran could tell himself to apologize and leave, Kyle stepped aside, opening the door a little wider. Bran realized he’d been holding his breath and let it out in an audible sigh as he stepped into the room.

There is still time to pre-order Safe House and get Tiny House (Buchanan House: Book Three) for $0.99 at the Dreamspinner Store! (As long as you’re reading this before Sept. 19th Eastern US time. :)) Click the cover below to read Chapter One in its entirety and if you like it grab a copy.

SafeHouseFS_v1Kyle Shimoda is an asshole magnet, has been for as long as he can remember. At forty-seven, he doesn’t see much chance for improving his luck in love. His friends who run Buchanan House, a gay retreat on the central Oregon coast, know he wants to find “someone nice” to settle down with, and they set him up with Officer Brandon Smith. Kyle has a turbulent history with law enforcement, but he can’t deny his attraction to the buff cop.

Brandon has been a police officer in Lincoln City almost since the day he graduated from high school over thirty years ago. He’s cultivated the facade of a serious, disciplined law enforcement officer, but beneath his overdeveloped chest beats the soft heart of a drama queen. A cancer scare shifts Bran’s focus from finding a serious relationship to having as much sex as he can—putting his goals squarely at odds with Kyle’s. If he can’t find the courage to be honest about his feelings for Kyle, the happiness they’ve both been searching for could slip through their fingers.

Buchanan House: Book Two, Pride Weekend, is always free at the Dreamspinner store and All Romance eBooks.

A Safe House snippet & announcement!

RSMMmedHola Snippetteers!

I’ve made good progress on my edits for BH#5 so am taking some time out to actually participate in Rainbow Snippets this week, instead of pinning and running. 😀

 

Safe House will be released in ten days (!) so I’m snippetting from it today. This is after Guest Chef Night at Buchanan House; Kyle and Bran and the whole family have just had a great meal and most of the crowd are heading out to go dancing in Lincoln City.

 

As they headed for the lobby, Kyle said, “I’m in room eight.” And if he hadn’t meant the invitation Bran heard, someone was about to be very embarrassed.

Bran stood in the lobby as Kyle mounted the stairs, his heart pounding at the view of Kyle’s trim but round ass. He waited there as long as he could, not more than a moment or two, and then followed. His knock on the door of room eight was met with silence and then slow footsteps. The door opened slowly, revealing a slightly startled Kyle.
