Blurb: This book is a sequel to Two Man Advantage

Life has been treating Victor Kalinski well, which is a surprise for the ginger-haired forward with the venomous tongue. His career is somewhat stable, at least for another season. His relationship with Cougars alternate captain Dan Arou is deepening, despite the fact that Daniel has yet to come out of the closet.

It’s typical Kalinski luck when a puck bunny he shared a drunken night with several months ago slaps him with a paternity suit. Despite the sizzling passion and painfully heartfelt connection between them, Dan doesn’t take the news well, and heads back to Canada alone.

If he wants to make things right and win back the man he loves, he has no choice but to swallow his pride—and nobody’s prouder than hot-headed, ego-driven Victor.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

An adult male/male romance from Ellora’s Cave

Excerpt

It was obvious what I had to do. And being me, I went into it with my usual tact and decorum. When I got back to our apartment, I walked into the space I shared with Dan to find two fat suitcases sitting in the living room. Upon seeing those bags, the hash browns and toast threatened to make a reappearance. I swallowed several times. Dan walked out of the bedroom, his small toiletry bag on his shoulder. He looked exhausted and so damaged.

“Hey,” I said. Verbal skills suffer with heavy drinking and heart-breaking. “So this is how it goes down?” I asked, motioning with a shaky hand to the bags. “You throw me out without even giving me a chance to explain? That’s pretty small even for a Hobbit.”

“Those are my clothes.” He hurled the words at me like shuriken stars. Mental cogs slipped a bit. I stared at my lover as if I were a stunned steer outside a butcher house.

“Dude, your name is on the lease.” Fuck, but those seven words cost me dearly. It hurt to say them, knowing that this was the beginning of the end. No way could I live here when it was Dan’s place.

“I’m not moving out. I’m going home.” His tone was bitterly cold. If we’d shut the windows, we could have skipped the AC units we’d discussed. Not knowing what to do with my hands, I began jangling my keys against my thigh.

“This is your home. I’ll get my shit and go.”

“No, I’m going home. To Manitoba. It’s my mom’s birthday.” He bent down to pick up his suitcases.

I felt a sting of panic race through me. My keys rattled with more speed. “We were supposed to do that together.” Wow, I was all sorts of skilled with the dialog.

Dan glared at me as he straightened. His bangs dangled in his eyes. “Yeah, well, that was before you fucked us over. I don’t want you anywhere near me or my family right now. I need to think.”

“Will you at least take the gift I got her?” Dear Baby Buddha, was that Victor Kalinski begging? My fingers tightened around my keys. That needy voice had to stop. VK did not beg or wheedle. Whining got you beat with whatever was at hand. Same as getting your fingers caught in the wringers.

“No.” He walked around me and out the door. I watched him go, his dark head slowly disappearing as he went down the stairs.

“But I picked it out myself.”

The roar of his Jeep leaving the driveway was his reply.

Release Date: 6/26/15

Blurb: Collegiate superstar goalie Boone Crockett seems to have the world at his feet. He’s rich, handsome, attends an elite college and is a hot prospect for the pros. Pity all that is a front for a deeply closeted and troubled young man.

All Boone’s life plans are shattered when flamboyant ex-figure skater Preston Gordon, an orange-haired twink, shows up to audition for the team’s mascot position wearing sequins, scarves and toe picks. His moves on the ice send Boone into his own pirouette of frustrated and reluctant desire.

As senior year progresses Boone slides deeper and deeper into a dangerous depression, Preston’s sensual strength the only thing he has to hold on to. If Boone can’t keep from plunging through the thin ice he’s skating on, it could take a twink to make the big save.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

ExclusiveExcerpt

It was my senior year. My team had finished strongly the year before and had clinched the NCAA Division One title. A large part of that success had been due to me. I’m not tooting my own horn…well, maybe I am. The truth is the truth no matter how egotistical it sounds. I had blown the roof off the NCAA goalie stats in my junior year. My senior year held nothing but promise. I could taste the pros. My name was on the lips of several NHL teams. All I had to do was keep my nose clean. That was all it would take to reap the bennies of all my hard work. I had it all pretty well in the bag. Eyes on the prize. Who knew? Maybe next year I’d be playing for an Original Six team. Yeah, it was a big dream, but any competitor knows that you set the bar high. Yep. Just one more season of living clean, keeping my sexual orientation under the covers and walking that prim intercollegiate line all the teams at prestigious Rock Point College are expected to walk.

That was when he appeared. A thin little twink with an orange pixie cut hair-do, pale skin and a lush mouth that needed to be plundered. A jolt of lust ran through me as he skated onto the ice with two other people. I couldn’t make my skates move me from my crease. The pipe on my back felt good, reassuring, stable. More water. Yes, more water. I pawed blindly for my lucky green bottle. With warm water dripping from my nose and chin, I stood spellbound as he made a few passes. He was lithe, graceful, lean yet muscular. Small, maybe five foot five or six, he weighed perhaps one-thirty soaking wet. Total opposite of my six-foot-two, one-ninety-nine self. He was the most obviously gay man I had ever seen.

His costume was a bright limey-green sequined thing that looked like it had been plucked right out of Johnny Weir’s traveling trunk. Several glittery scarves flowed behind him. Green eyes met mine as he skated past.
