Ely’s Epiphany, my last Secret Cravings orphan, is a contemporary M/M military erotic Christmas romance. It is a humorous, scorching hot, stand-alone sequel to Search & Rescue that contains very explicit M/M sex scenes and graphic language. It is scheduled for release in November in Champagne Book Group’s Carnal Passions line. Ely and Todd, now living in a palatial home in South Georgia with Lexie (their former ward) and her new husband, are ex-Green Beret gay partners who are in the process of examining their relationship. It’s a difficult, at times humorous, proposition, since they’re not on the same page.Here’s the blurb:
Will Christmas bring a breakup or a new beginning for ex-Green Beret partners Ely and Todd? 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.
In Ely’s Epiphany, Ely is a master chef. While I’m not a master chef, I love to cook and used my own recipes in the story. I’ll share them as we near publication. Rita
