The night I twice rescued presumably straight Ethan Harris, I figured that would be the last time I saw him. However, he keeps finding his way back into my life - and into my bed. Guess he wasn't as straight as I thought. Ethan's full of surprises, though, and being bi is just one of them. As cocky as he can be, he's also sharp and witty and, even when he's being his most arrogant self, he's charming as hell. He likes to win, but so do I. However, as we get to know each other, I realize there's more to us than the games we play in and out of the bedroom.

I've never messed around with a guy before. Not that I haven't been attracted to guys. The opportunity just never came up. I stand at the front door, naked. My bro's roomie, Scott, is pissed about how much noise I made with the girl I just escorted out of their apartment, but I figured we were alone, and I couldn't help that she liked to scream out to let me know she was enjoying herself.

I really enjoyed this book. I read a lot of gay romance novels and you are quickly becoming my favorite author! I especially like how you involve the dynamics of the family and how it impacts us as adults. I grew up gay in the South as well and it wasn’t easy surviving the Baptist guilt!
The sexy scenes are very enticing but what I really like is how you develop the story line and bring the characters to
Life. I find this to be missing in some of the books I listen to.
I live in Atlanta’s as well and it’s fun to hear the local haunts that your characters visit. I will
Listen to all of your books on audible. “ Up for the Challenge” is cued up for my listening pleasure.
Thank you,

When I met my son's best friend, the attraction was instantaneous. Jesse Morgan is charming, witty, and hot as sin. He might be young, but he's wise beyond his years. Hard as I tried, I couldn't keep my greedy hands off him, and once I had a taste, I needed more. He awakens a fire within me unlike anything I've experienced with another guy. He stirs a hot lust that makes it difficult for me to spend time with him without tearing his clothes off and giving him the pleasure he deserves. It's more than that, though. He makes me believe in something I'd given up on: love.

I'm not a fighter. I never was. So how do I make the one man who might just be worth fighting for see that? At 25 years old, Ford Cornell should have his whole life ahead of him but instead, the would-be artist is drowning in denial and just trying to get through each day. And the boy who once believed life was about following impossible dreams has finally come to accept that it's really only about surviving a living nightmare...one of his own making. But the bruises are becoming harder to hide. So is the truth...

Sassy-mouthed Stevie Devore has always had a crush on the local fire chief. Gorgeous, silver fox Evan Paige is way out of Stevie's league, however, not to mention the chief has always been a ladies' man, but when Stevie turns 21, he decides he's tired of only daydreaming about Evan. He wants a real taste of that sugar daddy, even if it means turning the flirt factor up a notch or 10 to make it happen. This story has pee-in-your-pants humor, peel-the-paint-off-the-walls steam, and a smidgie-poo of hand-on-chest swooning.

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about. To the outside world, he has it all. A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life. But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It's a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

Don't ever accidentally fall for the straight guy. Especially when he's trying to pry your family's business right out from under you. I should know. Because when Hudson Wilde walks into my family's pub and begins babbling so adorably, I can't help but fall just a little bit in love. But I'm looking for Forever Man, and the sexy American is certainly not him. He's so confused about what he wants, even choosing something from the dinner menu throws him into a fuddle. But those eyes...how can I resist?

I have listened to around 50 gay romance novels this year and this is my favorite one so far. Lucy, I am listening to all of your novels on audible because I get into the characters and lose myself! You even bring a tear to my eye from time to time. Michael brings all of the characters to life for me. Please continue this series.
I really enjoyed Facing West as well. I am Alonso
Looking forward to more of the Made Marian series. I listened to all 7 of them.
Time to listen to Wildefire! Can’t wait!!
