He can run, but he can’t hide…

Centuries ago, Hawk made a terrible mistake which has haunted him since. Fear of responsibility and feelings of unworthiness leads him to denying the mate Wha-tay showed him in a vision. So now Hawk runs his bar, has casual sex, and never, ever dates men with blond hair and brown eyes. But then Simon walks into his bar, and the future he’s feared is about to end up in a brawl if Hawk doesn’t do something—fast.

Simon Carter has a smart mouth and a bulldog temperament. So when Hawk runs, Simon pursues the sexy man, only to be rejected. Just as Simon decides to give up, someone—or something—visits him to change his mind… and scares him to death. Now Simon is backpedaling, and Hawk is in pursuit.

Desperate to reassure Simon, and keep him safe, Hawk is forced to reveal his secrets before he’s ready. Can Simon learn to accept things aren’t always as they seem? Is the connection between them strong enough to help Hawk overcome centuries of pain? The only way the two men will move beyond Hawk’s past is for both of them to take a leap of faith.

Random Questions:

Where do you get your ideas from?

Oh goodness, everywhere and everything. Music, TV, taking a walk, listening to my kids, talking to friends, watching the cat acting like a cat, staring off into space, lol. I’m never short of ideas to write about. It’s a lack of *time* that’s the problem, lol. I’ve said often there needs to be two of me!

Are your characters based on real life people?

Not really. I usually have an idea of what the character looks like, and then I go searching for a likeness. Small things might not match, but that’s okay. I just need the visual reference. But I do that with the setting too. If there’s a bar, I go looking for pics of bars. If it’s a bedroom… same deal.
I looked for a certain type of house for the guys in Trouble Comes in Threes, had millions of cat pictures, had pics of home garages that Kirk might work out of, pictures of cats playing in the snow… LOL. Did I mention I’m visual???

What’s the best thing you’ve learned since you became a published author?

That I’m not alone. *Laugh* What I mean is there are folks out there with characters talking to them all the time, and that’s usual! In fact, they worry when the characters *stop* talking, lol. How many times has a character of mine hijacked my plot… then I get on FB only to see another author complaining about the same thing! That shows me I’m not the only one dealing with squirrely characters. *wink*


Two hours later he was back up, pacing the floor, beyond annoyed. Why was he doing this now? He knew who his mate was supposed to be, and he wanted no part of it. He was responsible for himself only, and he liked it that way. Too bad the spirit that shared his body didn’t agree.

Really? What about all those people at the bar who depend on you?

“It’s not the same thing, and you know it.” A quick glance out his bedroom window confirmed dawn was about to break.

Freaking A, arguing with you is like arguing with a signpost. Why don’t you go stretch your wings, old man? We’ll chill on the breeze. Shift and we’ll find a nice juicy pigeon or rabbit for breakfast. That sounds dee-lish.

Hawk rolled his neck. His totem spirit’s mentality was that of a fifteen-year-old hopped up on sugar and running on three hours of sleep. The spirit was very old, but damned if it acted its age.
Whatever, dude. Just do something, will ya?

About the Author:

M.A. Church is a true Southern belle who spent many years in the elementary education sector. Now she spends her days lost in fantasy worlds, arguing with hardheaded aliens on far-off planets, herding her numerous shifters, or trying to tempt her country boys away from their fishing poles. It’s a full time job, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!

When not writing, she’s exploring the latest M/M novel to hit the market, watching her beloved Steelers, or sitting glued to HGTV. That’s if she’s not on the back porch tending to the demanding wildlife around the pond in the backyard. The ducks are very outspoken. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and they have two children.

She was a finalist in the Rainbow awards for 2013.

  1. Arguing with your totem spirit! That caught my attention. We all argue with our inner selves, but your excerpt showed it in a new light that pulled me right into the scene. Please count me in for the giveaway, and I look forward to reading this book.
