Sneak Peek of Bitter Springs

From my Publisher: “In 1870s Texas, Renaldo Valle Santos, the youngest son of a large and traditional family, has been sent to train with Henry “Hank” Burnett, a freed slave and talented mesteñero (or horse-catcher) so he may continue the family horse trade.”

Meet Henry Burnett.

“Bitter Springs is a sweeping epic that takes themes from traditional Mexican literature and Old Westerns to tell the story of a man coming into his own and realizing his destiny lies in the wild open spaces with the man who loves him, far from expectations of society.”

I’m happy to announce that Bitter Springs will be available on December 3rd.

The Bones Of You – an excerpt

The Bones Of You, in bookstores November 2014

Oliver Andrews, an American getting his Masters abroad at Cambridge University, has kept his head down, focused on his education and promising career to the point where almost everything in his life before academia has fallen by the wayside. When a well-meaning friend sends him a particular video clip, the life that he’d so carefully built for himself begins to crumble. There are ex-boyfriends, and then there are those who changed your life, who worked their way into the very marrow of your bones, redefining everything you thought you knew about yourself.

That would be Seth Larsen, the ethereal voice singing on Oliver’s computer, and apparently the new toast of Broadway. Seth, the boy who helped Oliver stand proud and come out, the man who now was causing Oliver’s life plan to shatter into a million pieces. Continue reading

“Do you have any idea how badly I want to kiss you right now?” Seth murmured.

Oliver’s heart gave an enormous, pained thump and with a choked cry, he leaned forward the mere inches between them, pressing their lips together. He felt Seth’s hand slide from his cheek to be buried in his hair, could feel Seth’s strong, lean chest pressed against his. Oliver held their bodies together tightly even as his mouth was still gentle on Seth’s, sliding softly over Seth’s lips, amazed that this was even happening.

Seth pulled back and pressed their foreheads together, his hand massaging Oliver’s scalp.”God, I’ve missed you so much, Oliver.”

“I know,” Oliver exhaled before kissing Seth again, all thoughts of being wary gone. He opened his mouth, moaning softly when Seth followed suit, splaying his hands across Seth’s back when their tongues touched, memories of all of the kisses they’d shared in the past coming back and speeding up their reconnection.

Oliver Andrews was wholly focused on the final stages of his education at Cambridge University when a well-meaning friend up-ended his world with a simple email attachment: a video from a U.S. morning show.

The moment he watches the video of his one-time love Seth Larsen, now a Broadway star, Oliver must begin making a series of choices that could lead him back to love… or break his heart.

The Bones of You is full of laughter and tears, with a collection of irritated Hungarians, flirtatious Irish women, and actors abusing Shakespeare coloring Oliver and Seth’s attempts at reconciliation.
