Description:

Alexander James Noble is a gender fluid gay man who gave up on finding Mister Right a long time ago. He’s not asking for much, though. He just wants a guy who loves all of him and appreciates his feminine form too.

At the local LGBTQ center where Alex regularly volunteers, he meets Dal Sayer, an officer of the Milwaukee PD. Because he’s been rejected one too many times, Alex doesn’t trust the huge cop and the interest he shows in him, but once Dal sets his mind on something, he goes all out. Pushing aside his preconceived notions, Alex opens up just a little and soon caves.

From their first date—while dealing with his father’s failing health and his parents’ demands for him to settle down and have children—Dal never takes his eyes off his goal of making Alex his. But proving to Alex he isn’t like all the men who couldn’t see him for who he truly was and only wanted to hide him away is harder than he thought.

—MM Good Book Reviews, on “Desires’ Guardian”

Guest Post – Tempeste O’Riley: Hope and Love Anthology

Good morning! I’d like to share a little about a project I worked on, one that means a great deal to me. A couple of months ago I was asked to participate in the Hope and Love Anthology—a donation anthology benefiting the LGBT Community Center that is close to me (and that I absolutely love!)—and of course, I said yes immediately!

The project was 100% donated: all 15 stories, the cover, editing, production, etc. It’s all a gift, as is all the proceeds that come from it’s sale. It all goes to the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center here in Wisconsin.

It’s a book of hope, love, community. Of coming together, standing up, of rebuilding and making families of choice. It’s also non-explicit, lol. Yeah, that was a little harder for me 😉 But the anthology is something I personally enjoyed, for a cause I believe in.

I had a lot of fun writing Micah’s Medicine (my short) and hope you take a peek, check out what all this book offers. At only $2.99 it’s a steal! Oh, and yes, it will be out in paperback shortly!

It starts with hope. That’s what LGBTQ Centers all over the world give us, the hope, the community, the care and education we need in a world that is often hate filled, scared of the unknown, and down right scary. When first introduced to community many of us rejoice as it’s often the first time we’re able to be out and be our true selves without fear or shame.

This anthology is for the benefit of one such center, one that touches many many lives, and like others, needs help and nourishment as well. Centers like the MKE LGBT Community Center depend on the love and support of others so that they may help and support us.

Within this collection of stories, you will find hope, family, love, and community. Take a chance on a new author or one of your beloved… read, enjoy, and know that you are helping children, adults, teens, and elderly alike in our greater LGBTQ community!

One hundred percent of the income from this volume goes directly to The MKE LGBT Community Center in Milwaukee, WI USA

Micah’s Medicine (my story in the anthology)

When Micah Sands runs into his best friend, and secret crush, Perry (Pericles Mann) near the skate park, he’s torn between joy and fear. Micah knows he’s different and is terrified of both his family and his friend finding out about his sexuality. But when Perry asks for his help, he finds more than he bargained.
