I forgot this … wow… I was searching for the old cover art and this post from last December popped up…

DECEMBER 2011 – The Christmas Throwaway gets 6th place in the Rainbow Awards Best Gay Contemporary Romance category

From the awards page:

‘From the first chapter, the author draws you into the story and you cannot put the book down until the very end. I like how the author described just enough about the setting and did not bog it down with a description of everything.

You still got the feel of the people of the town and the feeling of the season. Oh wow! I just can't say enough about the characters. Plain and simple, every now and then a reader can come across a story and you FEEL what the characters are feeling and that is exactly how I felt reading this story. — Rachel

Thrown out of his home for being gay, he is left without money or, it seems, anywhere to go. Until a stranger shows him that some people do give a lot more than a damn.

Ben Hamilton is a rookie cop in his small home town. He finds a young throwaway, fresh from the city, sleeping on a bench in the churchyard on a snowy Christmas Eve. Can he be the one to give Zachary his own Christmas miracle?
