Music of the Soul cover reveal, blurb and release date

     Hello everyone! I'm so excited to reveal the cover for my new book, Music of the Soul. It is the second book in the Souls of Chicago series.
     Carter and Ryan have taken me on a wild ride as I wrote their story. These guys are a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
     I'd like to give a giant thank you to Jay Aheer of Simply Defined Art for creating this amazing cover. Thank you for bringing my characters to visual life in such a beautiful way.

     Besides his family, music had always been the most important thing in Carter Greene’s life. Having a career in music was everything he had ever dreamed of. That was until the terrible night when he nearly lost everything. 
     Carter can’t get the image of one particular man out of his mind; the man who found him in his darkest moment. The one who risked everything to save him and the same person who most likely never wants to speak to him again.
     Ryan Marshall had led a pretty solitary existence ever since his grandfather had passed away. He spent most of his free time renovating the property he had inherited while avoiding the dating scene. Lately, he found himself longing for someone special; a man he could share his life with.
     One fateful night, an emergency call placed Carter in Ryan’s life and the two felt an immediate connection. Unable to stop thinking about him, Ryan decided to reach out, but was disappointed when Carter was not at all what he expected.
     Ryan is determined to move on and forget all about the beautiful man he rescued, but he soon realizes that sometimes fate has other plans. 
     Music of the Soul is book 2 in the Souls of Chicago series and can be read alone or as part of the series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.

Your encouraging words and thoughtfulness have made me feel very welcome in this new world of writing.
Thank you so much for making my debut such an exciting and positive experience. If you haven't had a chance to read Feeding the Soul yet, please click here to check it out on Amazon.

Feeding the Soul Cover Reveal, Blurb, and Teaser!!

Hey everybody! I'm a first time writer and I'm so excited to be getting ready to release my very first book. I have always been an avid reader, but when I found the world of gay romance I found my true love.

Here is the cover reveal for Feeding the Soul. This is the first book in the Souls of Chicago Series. Thank you Jay Aheer with Simply Defined Art for creating the beautiful cover and teasers.

Now for the blurb! 

Giovanni Romero had been dealt his fair share of heartbreak throughout his thirty years, including losing his beloved parents in a horrible car accident. After suffering yet another devastating loss, he decided to chase his dream of opening his own restaurant and was soon the proud owner of Romero’s, a hugely successful and critically acclaimed Italian restaurant, nestled in the heart of Chicago. 

Knowing that one more blow to his heart could destroy him, Giovanni had built walls up around his heart to protect himself. He has created strict rules for himself about the men he sleeps with, which include never exchanging names and absolutely no repeat performances. That is until he meets a young man who he finds impossible to forget. 

 After spending the last few years travelling throughout Europe and The Mediterranean, working as an apprentice to some of the world’s top chefs, 23-year-old Carter Greene was finally moving back home. While he had enjoyed his studies, he couldn’t wait to reunite with his big, crazy, loving family; especially his twin brother, Carter. Most importantly, he hoped to finally begin his career working as the head chef for Chicago’s most prestigious Italian restaurant, Romero’s.

After a night of celebration with Carter, Caleb finds himself in a rare position, going home with a tall, dark and sexy stranger. Caleb had never had a one night stand before, but there was something about the man that drew him in. Unfortunately, the man insisted they could only be together for one night. 

Unable to get the intriguing young man off his mind, but resolved to let him go, Giovanni is shocked to find that Caleb has been hired as his new head chef. Working in such close proximity to each other, could he keep his carefully erect walls in place and protect his heart or would Caleb have the strength to tear those walls down, setting Giovanni free?

I am so excited to share this teaser with you!

I hope to release Feeding the Soul by the end of May or early June. I hope you're as excited about the book as I am.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'll be back next week with another teaser!
