Good Heavens, I actually have a new release! On February 1st, Ardent, my gay historical romantic suspense, will be released, thanks to my wonderful editor Julie Bozza and Manifold Press. Since it’s so damn cold today, I’m turning up the heat with this snippet:
~*~

As he walked toward Morello, Benedetto pulled his shirt off to reveal skin, bone, and muscle as sharply defined as a sculpture. Morello had lusted for that body, dripping with river water, and desire struck him hard again. Benedetto stopped to kick off one shoe, then the other. He bent his long body to the floor and lay on his back at Morello’s feet, sprawled there on the scarred boards. Elbows propped the upper half of his body, the muscles in his stomach flexing. He crooked his knees up and let them fall open. The movement tugged the untied waist of his hose down along the line of slightly darker golden hair that buried itself in the tantalizing border of fair curls.
