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-September m/m romantic suspense. Henry Bright helped Trip repair the pipes, but he's soaked so they go to Trip's place to get warmed up. Henry is taking a shower, but he forgot his towel and now he's naked.
Taking a deep breath, Henry reached for the door just as Trip knocked on the other side.
“Everything okay in there?”
“Yeah, but I realized I’d come in here without a towel. Would you be willin’ to hand me one?” He grimaced and shook his head. How could he face Trip? His cock would give him away and Trip knew he was gay. Dear God, just shoot me now.
Trip laughed. “Yeah, not a problem. Just drop your wet things outside and I’ll hand you a couple towels.”
Henry took a deep breath and cracked open the door. He dropped his clothes with a wet splat on the floor and raised his gaze to Trip. The man had changed into a plush fleece robe tied loosely at the waist. His silver chest hair showed throw the gap at the top and Henry’s gaze stuck there, his mouth drying out. Jeez, the man was sexy no matter what he wore.
“Here’s your towels. I’ll make sure Mrs. Guthrie gets your wet clothes.” Trip paused when Henry stared at him. “Everythin’ okay?”
“Yeah, uh, yeah. No, it’s all good.” He grasped the towels. “Thanks. I’ll be out real quick.” He closed the door quickly before his cock waved.
“Take your time. Coffee should be ready by then.” Trip’s voice carried through the door.
Henry snorted. Oh, he’d take his time all right. He had to get rid of the hard-on and figure out a way to be normal around him, because the man was sexy-experience walking.
Maybe I’ll take a cold shower. Yeah, not his first choice, but Trip heated him up too much to be necessary.
Oh yeah, the cold shower will help ;) 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, Jessica Subject, J.D. Walker, Addison Albright, 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.
