Coming Soon -- "Chasing Butterflies"

"Chasing Butterflies", a contemporary m/m romance, will be out soon from Liquid Silver Books as part of their `Summer Lovin'` theme. Stay tuned for more details, or keep up to date on the LSB forum. Meanwhile, here's the blurb!

-----


When a heat-wave wrecks Nolan Brooks' rental car, leaving him stranded in a sleepy little Tennessee town, the goal of spending the summer running his best friend's beach-side bar begins to flutter out of reach. He's trying to be responsible and ambitious for the first time in his life, and spending the weekend at a local festival celebrating the migration of the Purple Lacewing butterfly doesn't fit into those plans.

But he's stuck for the duration, and making the best of a bad situation doesn't seem so difficult when a shortage of hotel rooms means he's spending it with the charming, if mysterious, Gray Ashton. Gray isn't too fond of tourists, but despite his misgivings, it seems he'll make an exception for Nolan.

When Nolan succumbs to the charms of the town, the butterflies, and Gray, he has to re-evaluate what he really wants. But the secrets in Gray's past and the obligations in Nolan's future won't make that any easier than chasing butterflies

New Review

Just Erotic Romance Reviews (you can find their Yahoo Group here) gave "Afterthought" 4 Stars and said:

"The idea of Paths and Empaths is not a new thing but this story uses it in a very interesting way. The language is beautifully descriptive and I enjoyed just reading the words. The growth of the relationship between Vance and Ayan seems very natural, they settle into a rhythm that just seemed real. Ayan appears to be the sweet na├»ve innocent in need of protection but as the story goes on, you see an inherent strength in the character that even he seems unaware of. Vance is a self-centered idiot, only out for himself until Ayan starts to make an impact on his life. Small changes that are hardly noticeable unless you are looking for them end up bringing Vance’s character to a more well-rounded place. The intimate scenes between Ayan and Vance were hot and sexy and the Empath/Path relationship added an extra dimension of feeling. The book took awhile to get going, but the set up was necessary for the plot. The author did manage to surprise me with the twists and turns the story took and I thoroughly enjoyed the secondary plot of the story. Afterthought is a well written, hot paranormal with very interesting ideas and theories."
