I'm offering snippets of STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT, Book 2 in the Triple Star Ranch series of the #CheyenneCowboys. This tale is a May-December m/m romantic suspense. Henry Bright is a country rock star and he's not interested in playin' the game anymore.
“You want me to what now?”
Henry Bright stared at his manager, his publicist, and the photographer trying to shoot his album cover with undisguised disgust.
“Oh, honey, don’t get so twitchy. I promise to make you look good.” The photog gave him a smarmy smile and a wink. “And I’ll save the naughty bits for later.”
Sweet Jesus, this guy is predatory. Henry scowled. He might be a country star who was out and proud, but that didn’t mean he was an easy fuck-toy for every gay predator from New York to New Orleans.
“Come on, Henry. It’ll be great.” His manager’s eyes sparkled. “You know sexy sells. All you have to do is take your clothes off and look over your shoulder with your guitar in front of your ass. Easy peasey, Japaneasy.”
“Yeah, but I’ll be fuckin’ oiled up like a goddamned drill rig, Jordie.” One of Henry’s pet peeves took the form of grease on his body. He hated being sticky and he really didn’t want to be touched by any of the assistants drooling over in the corner, male or female. “Do you know how hard that shit is to get out of body hair?”
Uh oh, looks like he'll take some convincing. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list, the Snippet Sunday Facebook group, and the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group. A few of my favorites are, P.T. Wyant, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Gem Sivad, Jessica Subject, and Iris Blobel. Here's the blurb to STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT:
Sometimes the brightest stars need to come home…
Henry Bright has a picture-perfect life as a rising star in the country rock scene—fortune, fame, and more lovers than he can shake a stick at. But something is missing. The glitz of Nashville is nothing more than glitter and tinfoil. Searching for authenticity in his life, he completes his DVM in veterinary medicine and returns to Wyoming. He takes a job as a vet at the Triple Star Ranch, hoping to find meaning and connection. He just didn’t expect to find love.
Trip Colton’s wife died over thirty years ago and he figured that was it for love. But the moment he meets Henry, he can’t get the younger man off his mind. The problem is, he’s never been attracted to a man before and the realization throws him for a loop. Dating is hard at any age, but Trip’s out of practice and wooing a man is completely different than wooing a woman.
When Henry’s former manager, Jordie, tracks him to Wyoming and begs the star to come back to the music biz, tensions damage the fragile connection between Henry and Trip. Jordie will do anything to convince Henry to return, even playing on his prejudices and hinting at Trip’s infidelity. But when the bank keeps calling with alerts on Henry’s accounts, he suspects there’s more going on with Jordie than a simple comeback music tour. Ultimately, Henry must choose where his heart lies, and who to trust, before he loses more than his chance at love.
This title is expected to be release in May 2017 from Three Lakes Books.
