Hey! And welcome to another week of Seductive Studs.
In two weeks, my book 959 Brenton Street will be out and I’m very excited for it as it’s the first in a brand new series and the first four books are currently contracted with Dreamspinner Press and I’m waiting on word on the fifth book. In this snippet from 959 Brenton Street, Trent has just learned that the house he hopes to get a room in is filled with men who aren’t exactly the norm – at least not where he comes from.
“You all right?” Alan asked after a couple minutes. “Your eyes are huge.”
Squirming a little, Trent shook his head. “I’m fine. I moved out here to get away from my conservative upbringing, and what do I do? Show it off. Sorry about that.”
Alan smiled kindly. “Well, you just need to decide if you would be comfortable living in a house with a bisexual and a gay man. If you can’t? It’s been nice, but you might as well leave before the other two get home.”
“It isn’t that,” Trent said quickly, knowing he was embarrassing himself. “I’m actually gay myself.” How the words slipped out, he didn’t know, but they did.
“Whoa,” Alan said, rushing over to his side and rubbing his back just as Trent realized he was having difficulty breathing.
Trent Farnsworth moves to Falcon Pointe to get as far away from his controlling family and religion as he can. While his conservative upbringing makes it hard for Trent to admit he’s gay, he accidentally outs himself in front of his four new roommates. None of the men living at 959 Brenton Street are what the world would consider normal, but all four accept him for who he is. He never expects to feel right at home in a loving discipline household. And when Trent falls for his much older landlord, Dr. Cory Venerin, he’s as surprised as anyone, but discovering Cory feels the same makes Trent realize he’s truly in the right place at the right time.
Until he tells his family he’s gay. His father uses any resource at his disposal to destroy him, including Trent’s love for Cory. As his father schemes to send Trent to a hospital whose sole purpose is to rip the gay out of him, Cory battles to save not only Trent—but also the possibility of a future together.
