For Sale: One Untold Love Story

By On Apr 25 2013, 9:00 am

If we end up sitting next to each other at a restaurant, chances are I’m going to turn you into a dragon. Not *actually* a dragon, but in theory? You just got scaled, baby. See, I’m a dangerous combination of romance addict and romance author with a wild imagination. One of my favorite things is seeing people in love.

I had a new release this week. Malachi’s Word. It’s a male/male friends-to-lovers short story. I’m primarily a contemporary male/female author. But I love reading male/male.
