This year is going to be amazingly, fantastically superb! I have 4 Men of Falcon Pointe novels that will be out this year. Plus, I have a novel I submitted that I am waiting to hear back from. It’s the 1st in a multi-author M/M Action/Suspense Romance series called Order of the Black Knights. It was an exciting book to write and as soon as I get a contract for it, I’ll tell you a little more about the amazing book.
For now, I thought I would continue on with some of my backlist. How about some Logan & Christian? Their trilogy started out with As Natural As Breathing. As the author, I will admit this is a book I want to re-write. It’s one of those now that I know so much about books, editing, and publishing, I can’t read it without going “oh, I want to change that… and that… and that…” However, the bones of the story are great. It’s just the little things that bother me. But not enough to not make me proud of the book. Because I am. I adore Logan and Christian and this book starts off their romance.
This snippet is from their first meet, which amusingly enough is at Christmas. Logan’s parents throw a lavish Christmas party every year and he’s dressed up as Santa Claus.
“Ho ho ho,” chuckled a voice, and he turned to see a man seated on one of the chairs lining the walls. He wore a pair of jeans, a green button-down shirt, and cowboy boots. Logan tried not to focus on the cowboy boots. Cowboys were one of his fetishes. He could get a hard-on just by thinking of one.
“Ho ho ho,” he returned, smiling at the very good-looking man with extremely short, dark blonde hair. For once since he came out, he wasn’t sure what to say to another guy, so he went with this Santa persona. “Have you been good this year?”
Biting the inside of his lip, Logan tried to ignore his now hard cock that was just barely covered by the Santa coat. Just the thought of a naughty cowboy was almost too much for him to handle. “Well, now, we can’t have that,” he answered, his voice not as sure of itself as it had been. It sounded too breathy to him. “Naughty boys get coal in their stocking.”
Shrugging, the man looked around. “That would top off my year,” he said sullenly, all pretense of a good mood disappearing.
“What’s your name, young man?” he asked, trying to get his Santa voice back.
Looking back at him, the man shook his head. “Doesn’t matter. Now, go help the people who need you.” Without another word, he stood up and limped away without looking back.
Frowning, Logan considered going upstairs and changing, but something about the gorgeous cowboy who looked like he was in pain was too much to ignore.
For Christian Darringer, life isn't worth living. Just back from the Middle East—scarred and with permanent damage to one leg—he doesn't think anyone will want him for anything. He didn't plan on meeting someone he can’t stop thinking about. Pulled toward the startling younger man, he begins to question a lot of things—especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan.
Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends, and security. The only thing missing is the love of his life, a love just like his parents have. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help the sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants. His interest in spanking has become a fetish and when Christian admits he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.
Just as everything begins for them, Christian's past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. When it lands Christian in the hospital, he is forced to reevaluate their budding romance. Being with Logan might feel as natural as breathing, but if it costs Christian everything he cares about, is this new relationship worth it?
*sigh* I adore these two men.
