That's right! Compass Hearts released today from Torquere! Woot-woot! I'm so excited that this little novella has finally found a home and can now go out to readers who, I hope, will love it as much as I do. It's been a long road for this one, originally written as an anthology submission in 2007. Four years old and it's finally leaving the nest. *teary-eyed* But seriously, I very much hope you like this story. There are sexy college boys and cold winter nights. Put those elements together and what's not to like, right? ;-)
As the fourth son of merchant parents, Matthew Morgan has always been
superfluous. The only guidance he ever received was to behave and stay out
of the way. Now, at a university half a world away from home, he must
discover who he is and what he wants. Too bad he's never made a decision in
When Ash Thearon meets Matthew, the handsome fellow student he's been ogling
all quarter, he finds him sweet, sexy, and more than a little puzzling. To
solve that puzzle, he must first collect all the pieces, which is easier
said than done. The new friends quickly become lovers, but Matthew's
sheltered life has taught him only how to follow. Ash wants the give and
take of an equal, and Matthew's tendency to try too hard to please others
leaves Ash wondering how to teach him independence without losing him.
I think of this as a "quiet" romance. I'm not sure I can define that adequately outside of my own brain, but see if you don't agree with me when you read it. 'Cause you're going to read it, right? I sure hope so. And to make it easier for you, here's a handy link so you can buy it now! :-)
Oh, and there's a bonus scene available either at the above link or over on my website.
Happy release day, everyone!
