Christmas came early for me when Secret Cravings Publishing offered a contract for ELY’S EPIPHANY. The novella is my first Christmas story and my first M/M. Todd and Ely were Lexie’s Carter’s ex-Green Beret guardians in SEARCH & RESCUE, my first contemporary military romance. I liked them so much I gave them their own story. Heads up, though. While SEARCH & RESCUE was a four-flame story, ELY’S EPIPHANY is a five-flame, for sure – another first. No cover yet, but check out the blurb.
Will Christmas bring a breakup or a new beginning for ex-Green Berets Ely Locklear and Todd Anderson? For Todd Anderson, a West Point graduate from a wealthy family, it was love at first sight. Living with Ely wasn’t easy, but it was the only life for him. When Ely plays too nice, Todd fears his partner—his first and only lover who introduced him to the gay lifestyle and sizzling hot sex—is preparing him for a Christmas breakup. Will this Christmas be their last together?
Ex-Green Beret Ely Locklear survived a childhood filled with poverty and abuse by building a wall around his heart. Although the millionaire mercenary and entrepreneur has a family and partner who love him, the wall and rough edges remain. When his ward’s new Army Ranger husband shows him that loving someone isn’t a weakness, he wonders if it’s too late for a fresh start with his partner of two decades.
