Welcome to another WipItUp Wednesday. My life has gotten so busy over the last two months, I keep forgetting to post! However, since I have two books coming out this month, I figured I’d better do it 🙂 You’ll see a snippet from Delivered to Love, a book I co-Wrote with Jamie Ray, on her blog. So I’ll share a snippet from 959 Brenton Street, a book in a new series of mine called Men of Falcon Pointe, which will be out on Nov 20th and is available for pre-order now.
Trent wanted to find out who Cory’s guest was, but knew it was none of his business. Unfortunately it hammered at him while he was in the bathroom. Cory was such a good guy, but he hadn’t liked the look of the man who kissed him. A selection of muffins sat on the coffee table when he came back out, his hair combed and wearing a T-shirt and jeans. Cory was still just in boxer briefs.
“Trent,” Cory said after he sat down and grabbed a muffin. “Be glad you just moved in.”
“Why?” Trent asked with a yawn, picking up one of the glasses of orange juice Cory had put out.
“Listening to other people’s conversations is a spankable offense.”
Startled, Trent blinked at him. “Oh.” Heat spread across his cheeks at the slight reprimand.
“You didn’t know that. So I won’t do anything. But for the future….”
“Yeah. I was raised not to do it. Like I said. Sorry.”
He just nodded.
“So… uh… who was that? Your boyfriend?” Trent knew he shouldn’t ask, but couldn’t stop himself. The guy hadn’t looked good enough for Cory.
Cory chuckled softly. “No. Cameron is a professional associate.”
“Doesn’t that get complicated?”
He looked into Trent’s eyes and shook his head. “Only as complicated as you choose to make it. Cam’s predominantly het, but he has gay leanings. When he gets an itch, he calls me.”
“He’s using you,” Trent said in shock.
“True. But I’m using him too.” He took a bite of his muffin and continued. “The world isn’t as cut-and-dried as you think it is, Trent. It isn’t white and black, good and bad. There’s a wealth of color and experience in between. A full rainbow. I’m a man who knows what he wants and what he needs. If I were in a relationship, I would have told Cam no. But I’m not, and he’s a fairly decent partner. Besides,” he added and his eyes twinkled. “We didn’t fuck.”
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.
And now on to some other wonderful works in progress…
