Sticking by what I believe is right.



This month's release comes with a backstory I'd love for you to stay until the end to read. This is a book with a cause.

Four months. Countless calls, texts, and steamy nights. All lies.
All Army wants is to meet his biggest TV obsession, Tanner Murray. He’s watched the man playing one of Primetime’s sexiest vampires for years. When he learns his celebrity crush is appearing at a local comic con, Army doesn’t waste any time getting his ticket. After getting lost, making a new friend, and standing in the world’s longest line, Army gets one fan experience he’ll never forget.
Tanner, A.K.A. Brit, meets men and women everywhere he goes. Being a celebrity means there’s no shortage of willing bodies. The only difference between Army and the rest is that Army is the only person Tanner has ever slept with more than once. That doesn’t mean the man has him tied down, or that he knows Tanner at all.
After Army walks away from Tanner, he never expects to see the man again. In fact, he hopes he never will. The only thing Tanner has ever done for Army is break his heart. When circumstances land Tanner on Army’s doorstep, Army vows this time things will be different. He has no idea how right he is.



Author Note


I hope this is the one and only time I have to give this type of back story on a book, but I’m doing so for a good cause. The original version of this story was just a short meet cute—no sex or even kissing. You see, I was contacted by someone representing a small publishing company, asking for a donated story for an anthology to raise money for cancer. I wrote a short piece around 3,000 words and sent it to them. A few weeks later, they contacted me again, saying the only way they would include my story was if my characters weren’t gay, because the CEO of the publishing house is a Baptist. They said if I’d change my story to an M/F story, I could be included. In that moment, it no longer mattered if they’d be willing to accept me if I changed my story, because I was no longer willing to accept them. Refusing to accept a donation because a character is gay isn’t faith. It’s hate, and they obviously know nothing about me if they think for one minute I’ll stand for that. I withdrew my submission and made it longer. Now, with all the sexy scenes and hot kisses included, Brit and Army’s romance will help raise money for a different worthy cause—The Trevor Project, a charity that helps at-risk LGBT youth. A portion of this book’s proceeds will go to support the only thing that spreads even faster than hate and fear—love.
