…and I have already been reading Christmas stories. For authors, the festivities often start in July, because Christmas books are written in advance. I must admit I get some funny looks from my family when I'm listening to Christmas music and it's swelteringly hot outside!
If you like Christmas, then you might know that I have a LOT of Christmas Stories I have written, including a new one coming out on November 1, and some freebies. Find out more by clicking below.
A desperate plea for help and an admission of love sends Patrick racing to stop his best friend from marrying the wrong man.
Patrick never stopped loving Declan, even if he shoved him away at graduation when they kissed. His alpha-type brothers and father, with all their firefighter history, would never accept him being bi, or understand his need to step outside of the family firm and be a cop. So, he hides how he feels, and ends up losing the only man he’s ever really loved. The only reconciliation they tried was the night he found out Declan was engaged, and it broke him that by staying silent he had lost his once chance at happiness. That is, until he receives a desperate phone call from Declan asking to be rescued. Through travel chaos and storms, Patrick finally reaches the Colorado mountains, but with an empty wedding room and no sign of Declan or his fiancé, he knows he’s too late.
All too familiar with rejection, jilted by his fiancé on his wedding day, and lost, Declan has no idea what comes next. He never imagined he’d be entirely alone after the wedding party leave, or an avalanche would trap him in the hotel over Christmas. And worse? Patrick has shown up, is staying in the hotel with him and won’t leave him alone. Sharing a room with his former best friend is the last thing Declan wants, but maybe this is a sign that he needs to confront the past and move on with his life. But when secrets and truths are revealed, Declan has to make the biggest decision of his life. Is it possible for him to fall out of love with the one man who really holds his heart?
