It’s been awhile since I posted (so long that I had to reread the rules)- I’ve been so busy, time has just whooshed by… and it’s about to get whooshier. Yeah. It’s a word. Okay, maybe not an official word, but if I get enough people to use it it could become one *Grins*
So how about a taste from His Right Choice, book 4 in the Men of Falcon Pointe series? It will release on Aug 22nd and is the last one in the series for awhile, but not forever (I hope). I have 1 novel completely written but it needs reworked and several novellas – so there may be more from Falcon Pointe yet 🙂
There are a gaggle of 5 men on campus Nick refers to as the Happy Gay Guys and he keeps running into them… no matter where he’s at. As he’s spent his life trying to be straight, it’s a bit discombobulating. In this snippet, he’s at a lab for one of his classes.
While he waited for Avery to get to him with the lab, Nick stretched and looked around to see if there was anyone he knew. He recognized some of the faces from class earlier, but others he didn’t know at all. When he turned toward his left to look at the only station between him and the wall, his eyes widened. What the hell? He couldn’t go anywhere on campus without running into one of the happy gay guys. What was going on?
The guy sitting next to him had a messy fauxhawk like Avery’s and bright red highlights through his brown hair. He also had a dreamy, happy quality that kind of creeped Nick out. That just wasn’t natural.
Nicholas Layton, fresh off his mission for the Mormon Church, attends Falcon Pointe University with plans to enjoy his final year of freedom before he gives in and marries his long-term girlfriend. But when he meets a group of gay men, some of whom are ex-Mormons and some who practice loving discipline, he finds he’s more comfortable with them than anywhere else. Suddenly he’s straddling the line between good Mormon and gay man.
As an added bonus—or problem, depending—he meets Ethan Kierk, who is good-looking, fun to be around, and who wants to be with him. Nick tries not to think about dating a man, but he can’t help it. He wants Ethan, and that terrifies him.
To avoid his feelings, Nick steels himself to propose to his girlfriend but breaks things off at the last moment. Instead he jumps headlong into a relationship with Ethan, and it feels so right—until he has to tell his family. When they reject him, he shares his darkest secret with Ethan, and hopes Ethan won’t reject him too.
And now, on with more WIPs…
