Howard Justinian has always had to fight for his freedom. Because he was born blind, everyone is always trying to shelter him, but he’s determined to live his life on his own terms.
Garrett Bowman is shocked that fate has brought him to a family who can sign. He’s spent much of his life on the outside looking in, even within his biological family, and to be accepted and employed is more than he could have hoped for. With Connor, who’s included him in his family, Garrett has found a true friend, but with the distant Brit Wilson Haskins, Garrett may have found something more. In no time, Garrett gets under Wilson’s skin and finds his way into Wilson’s heart, and over shared turbulent family histories, Wilson and Garrett form a strong bond.
Wilson’s especially impressed with the way Garrett’s so helpful to Janey, Connor and Dan’s daughter, who is also deaf. When Wilson’s past shows up in the form of his brother Reggie, bringing unscrupulous people to whom Reggie owes money, life begins to unravel. These thugs don’t care how they get their money, what they have to do, or who they might hurt. Without the strength of love and the bonds of family and friends, Garrett and Wilson could pay the ultimate price.
Lowell Cartwright’s life as a mercenary problem solver has taken its toll, and after one more difficult job, he wants out. For help, he turns to Bull, a soldier of fortune turned club owner—not exactly a friend, but the best chance Lowell has. He visits Bull’s club to scope it out and meets Jeremy Hodgson. The twink captures his attention in a big way. Bull tells Lowell to stay away from the club until he decides whether he can help, so Lowell stays in town. When he spots Jeremy passed out on the floor of a convenience store, he goes to Jeremy’s aid.
Lowell piques Jeremy’s interest immediately, pushing all the right buttons. Then, when Jeremy needs help, Lowell’s kindness turns interest into something more.
But trouble comes knocking when Jeremy’s place is bugged. Maybe Lowell’s past is catching up to him, or maybe the danger centers on Jeremy’s roommate Tristan’s mysterious boyfriend. Whatever the source of the problem, the future Lowell and Jeremy hope for doesn’t stand a chance unless they can find a way to protect themselves.

Rebound releases on February 12 and I wanted to share a sneak peek excerpt and share just a little about this story. Rebound didn’t start the way a lot of my stories do. I had a vague of the overall story. But it really started with the character’s names. I am not going to give away anything but Obie and Bri began with just their names and then they quickly filled in. Both men’s bold personalities came forward almost immediately and a story that I loved to write was born. I know I say that about each story, but some … Continued
You Can Teach and Old Dog New Tricks
I can’t try to tell you the number of times that I have gotten requests for stories with older, more mature characters. Many romances contain stories of young guys trying to find their way in the world. That is a very valid subject because learning who you are and accepting that you’re different is part of being gay. But sometimes its nice to break form that and take a journey with someone that life has put through its wash machine and is just trying to figure a way forward. In this case we have a successful man who desperately … Continued
Behind the Scenes – Fire and Agate
I have to let you in on a little secret. There is a real story behind Fire and Agate. A friend of mine is a social worker here in Carlisle and this spring, she helped with the care, housing, and eventual relocation back to their families of 20 women who had been trafficked into this country. I will say that they were even more traumatized than I made Pavle in the story. But I didn’t want to make Fire and Agate too dark. When my friend told me the story of some of these women I got so angry. I … Continued
Welcome to Autumn
Its September and I always love this time of year. The heat of summer abates with cooler nights. I love being able to sleep with the windows open. Fall is also the start of what I like to call cuddle season. All summer its too hot, so Dominic and I tend to sleep on our own sides of the bed. But with the coming of fall, I start to get colder at night and slide closer to Dominic. Often during the night I end up pressed right against him. Of course as the season wears on, mother nature brings out … Continued
