A contemporary sweet gay romance or m/m romance.

Length: approx. 76 pages or 19,000 words

Heat level: Low

Excerpt:

“Harris,” called Archie at the door to the bathroom. “Could you bring out a bandage?”

“For your burn?” asked Harris, blinking.

“No, I’ve cut myself.” He sounded embarrassed.

“You have? How? You just finished burning yourself.”

“I know, I know. Could you just bring the bandage? When you come out. I mean, when you’re done.”

Harris smirked. “Of course, Arch.”

“Oh, thanks,” said Archie, sounding witless and breathless.

How badly did he cut himself. Also, how?

Harris didn’t bother with socks and shoes, but left the room still barefoot, bringing the first aid kit. “Let me see?”

Archie stood in the middle of the kitchen, looking lost. He held up a red-slicked hand, gripped tightly in his other.

Harris made a sound in his throat and reached for it. “Did you wash?”

“No. I’m trying to get the bleeding to stop first.” Archie sounded rather faint.

“Right.” Harris looked around blindly. He grabbed a clean kitchen towel and began to wrap Archie’s hand tightly. Their hands bumped each other in the fumbled hurry. “Hold this up high and squeeze, best you can. Do you need to go to the hospital?”

“No, no, no. I’m fine.”

Harris steered him towards a kitchen chair and guided him to sit. Archie looked pale.

“How did it happen? How do you possibly cut yourself making tea?”

He nodded to the table. Harris glanced over and saw the partly open packet of cookies sitting there, a sharp knife next to it.

“I always have trouble getting that stupid packaging open, so I thought, why not a knife?” Archie laughed a little breathlessly.

“Not your smartest decision.” Harris brushed the hair back from Archie’s forehead, holding a hand against the soft, warm skin a moment. His other hand gripped Archie’s shoulder.

Archie leaned against him like one surrendering tension now that he knew he was safe.

Harris closed his eyes, carding fingers tenderly through Archie’s hair, wishing he could make this moment last forever.



Black Gold (The Boomtown Boys)

by Ruby Laska


BOOK 1 IN THE BOOMTOWN BOYS SERIES

When country singer Chase Warner’s father dies, he finally realizes he’ll never impress the man who raised him and hangs up his guitar for good. Soon after he moves to North Dakota and signs on as a derrick hand, he learns that an honest day’s work bringing oil from the earth gives him far more satisfaction than performing ever did.

When his friends take him to the local tavern to celebrate his birthday, Chase agrees to sing one song for old times. When he looks out into the audience, he finds himself staring at a rockabilly dream come true: blue eyes, blond curls and sweet curves in the kind of dress just made to show them off.

Nashville talent scout Regina McCary is taking a forced “vacation” after a bad breakup when she stumbles on the voice she’s sure will take her career to the next level: the smoldering, if slightly drunk, man singing in a North Dakota honkeytonk isn’t just talented but gorgeous, too. Regina is sure she can package and promote the reluctant singer – but soon she realizes she wants Chase for far more than a client.

THE BOOMTOWN BOYS SERIES

When the recession strikes Red Fork, Arkansas, leaving five friends desperate for a new start, they head for Conway, North Dakota to make their fortunes in the oil boom. Matthew, Calvin, Chase, Jimmy, and Zane are no strangers to hard work, but life on an oil rig means long shifts, difficult conditions and constant danger, and total commitment to bringing the black gold up from deep below the earth’s surface.

It takes a special kind of woman to thrive in an oil town. The women who love the Boomtown Boys are as beautiful as the wildflowers dotting the gently rolling plains, as tough as the rocky Dakota Badlands, and passionate enough to keep their men warm through the long northern winters.

I detected anger in my queen’s voice.

“Kuiella, what is wrong?”

She did ignore me. Then my queen faced the crowds and spoke in a rhythmic manner.

“Citizens…”

It sounded hard and with an edge that was flinty and sharp; as in a crisp supreme voice.

“I speak to you today on our war.”

Silence filled the room. Kuiella became more angry.

“I regret to inform you that we will lose if we keep on our current course.”

There was something about her tone that was as cold as a block of ice. She sounded like a hanging judge giving out a death sentence in a gloomy court room. Fear did grip me like a vise. Kuiella was starting to scare me.

Young Holly Spera thought she’d found the only man she would ever need or want, but one day, without saying a word, he simply vanished, crushing her dreams. She is forced to realize the good times they shared in the past, and the plans they shared of the future were only bits and pieces of the optimism that would never come true. Will she ever get over Colby Welles or will he live on in her imagination, a man who has become larger than life? The best part of her daydream is that she can create anyone she wants . . . .

Excerpt:

“You’re not wearing panties,” echoed in Holly Spera’s head. The poignant memory of the hoarse male voice and his awe-filled words sent shivers of longing down her spine.

She strolled aimlessly out into the garden behind her mother’s house. A few days earlier, she had passed her twentieth birthday, but her heart was already shattered.

The fragrance of roses in full bloom filled the humid night air. Yellowish lights from inside the two-story building cast dancing shadows on the large backyard and the lightest whisper of a breeze rippled through the peach trees, daring to break the heart-rending stillness. Everywhere in the bushes behind her, crickets chirped endlessly. And tonight, eight months after she’d heard the exclamation that made her tingle to her deepest core, she wore no underwear. The hem of a smocked, thin cotton dress reached to her knees.

Recalling the strikingly handsome Colby Welles brought both pain and delight. Holly loved to press her soft curves against his hard planes, to rake her fingers through his short, honey-blonde hair while he whispered naughty nothings into her ear. When the sun cast its golden rays upon his head, the silken strands shifted to gold. She had told him often that he was her dream love, and how lucky they had been to find each other. He had chuckled, and held her even closer, squeezing the soft globes of her breasts against his broad chest. Colby had always been larger than life. Now he was gone.

Holly urged herself to relax her clenched fists and her tense thigh muscles. The summer heat surrounded her, almost like an envelope sealing its contents within. She paused and vigorously rubbed her upper arms, hoping she could forget Colby Welles and the overwhelming effect he’d had on her. There had never been a time after they’d left each other for short periods of time, when she couldn’t stop thinking about him. What was he doing now? What was he seeing with those beautiful eyes, neither solid green nor blue, yet almost a soft turquoise, that reminded her of the edge of a lake in the middle of a summer’s day?

Sixty Days

by Zoe Glez

“”What, no last kiss for me?” I ask, my pout on full display. Mickey looks at me as if he suddenly remembers that this will probably be our last kiss until January and heads toward me. Pulling me in his arms, he kisses me with such passion and need that it makes me weak in the knees.

“I could spend a whole eternity kissing you, my heaven,” he says, breathlessly. “I love you, Laylah. You are my world, remember that.”

“I love you too, Mickey,” I whisper to him. Stretching up onto my tiptoes, I hug the love of my life, wishing that we could stay like this forever.”

Sixty days; the length of a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas, starting the day before thanksgiving and ending as soon as January 6th. That’s how long Laylah’s entire family will be visiting.
