Tyler tried to put Johnnie’s whereabouts from his mind, but he couldn’t quite manage it. He knew when Johnnie left the bar and trailed along into the dark part of the room behind the couch. Tyler panicked, wondering what he was doing, but he didn’t dare look. A click, then sounds from the bedroom, told him that Johnnie had left the room. Tyler bit his lip and fought a groan, not wanting to think of Johnnie anywhere near a bed. The sound of running water told him that the man was in the bathroom, but then his mind filled with what Johnnie looked like wet. He was like that in one of the band’s videos, and Tyler had always suppressed the fact that he found that video particularly stimulating.

Yeah, he had to get out of here! Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent 1: Heaven

Tyler stared at the silent television. Christmas music drifted through the air from the closed bedroom door. Had Johnnie gone to bed? It was only nine o’clock, absurdly early for him even if the two of them had been up most of the previous night. They’d spent Christmas Eve and this morning at Amy’s house, enjoying Tyler’s young nieces’ Christmas cheer. But tonight was supposed to be for him and Johnnie. Their first Christmas as a married couple.

Tyler sighed, closing his eyes in defeat. His fault. He shouldn’t have left. Or he should have allowed them to go away for the night as Johnnie suggested. He turned toward the closed bedroom door and headed for it, ready to face the music. Christmas music, that is. Of course, the faint strains of holiday cheer coming from the bedroom didn’t mean Johnnie was awake. He often liked to listen to music as he went to sleep.

Tyler saw the scrap of thick, red, faux velvet ribbon sticking out from under the door, lit by a soft light that peeped through the crack. Stalling, he bent to pick it up but it proved to be longer than he thought. He pulled until it resisted, attached to something. Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent: Pretty Red Ribbon

Reese toed off his shoes in the tiled entryway of his townhouse, tossing his jacket — his only dry piece of clothing — onto a nearby chair. The shoes were ruined. His socks were soaked and stunk something awful. No, it wasn’t just the socks. With a new spate of curses, he started ripping at the shirt and slacks to get them off. How much was he going to have to pay for doing this to a rental? Thoroughly disgusted, he dropped his underwear last, letting the cotton splat onto the tiles.

Amazingly enough, he was half hard. Damn Luc!

Fuming, he stomped up the narrow flight of stairs and into the bathroom through the door that opened onto the upper landing. He cranked on the water and stepped under the spray before it was quite warm enough. He had to get the sour fish pond smell off his skin. Diligently, he scrubbed his skin until he was red all over and washed his hair twice. The second time wasn’t quite necessary, but he was trying his best to distract himself from his errant thoughts and the hard on that wouldn’t go away.

Reese laughed, dropping the pink and picking up orange. “It’s not really cold.”

Luc shivered, forcing Reese to hold the pencil up or draw a jagged line. “You’re nuts. It’s cold.” Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent: Sexy Spring Surprise

“I’ve been watching you.”

He patted his pocket for his pack of smokes. “Yeah.” He’d just have another one, and hopefully Hell would head on up to his room alone.

“I want you.” Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent 3: Hell

Brent toed off his Birkenstocks as he headed for the door and reached down to grab the hem of his T-shirt to pull it off. He fumbled with it, then managed to toss the garment into a nearby chair. Left only with his cargo shorts, he stopped in the doorway.

Hell didn’t turn, didn’t move from gazing up at the sky. “You’re late.” His tone was cool, but maybe he wasn’t too mad. A pop and a swish and a trail of sparkling white shot into the sky, giving a silvery sheen to Hell’s lavender curls. Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent: Feisty Little Firecracker

He took a step closer and caught Chris’s hand, stopping the other man. His heart was racing, but his voice was amazingly calm. “So, can I have sex now?” Okay, maybe his voice was a little breathy. Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent 4: Faith

Chris turned and crossed the hardwood floor on socked feet to stand before Darien. The smell of mint and wet dirt made Darien look at the bowl. Yep, mud. While he was still frowning at the bowl, Chris kissed his cheek then reached beside him, using a knuckle to flip on the recessed lighting that lined the ceiling along two walls. Violet-tinged shadows fled and the soft glow filled the bedroom. Giving Darien a brief smile, Chris turned and rounded their California king bed to the other window.

“So is this a tradition now?” Mavis asked, sitting heavily on the padded bench beside Reese. “This after-Christmas party?”

Reese smiled, sipping his Jack and Coke. “It could be,” he told her, setting down the tumbler. “We had so much fun last year, we decided to do it again.” Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent 5: Genesis

“Palm Springs?”

Owen stared at his monitor. “Yeah.”

Jane sighed and perched on the far edge of his desk. “And she just met him this last week?”

“Yeah.”

“Damn. What a life.”

“Yeah.”

“Oh God, would you stop mooning already?”

Scowling, he checked that the office door was closed. “Be a little louder, why don’t you?”

She reached up to smooth a hand over her short, straight black hair. “Oh, no one’s going to hear. Just about everyone’s gone home.”

He turned back to his monitor and tried to ignore her.

He’d known it wouldn’t work. She sat up further on his desk, leaning toward him. “Owen, you know you don’t have a chance with her, right?” Continue reading EXCERPT – Heaven Sent: Revelations
