Genre: Contemporary, Gay Fiction, M/M Romance

Blurb:

These are all part of the Woodland Village series, but they can be standalone. The characters do weave in and out of all books, but the two main characters are different couples in each book.

BLUE SKYE – Book 1
After years apart, two childhood friends are reunited– but will Skye settle for less than love and will Drew face his greatest fear?
Skye Taylor lives the artist life in Manhattan, openly gay and proud. Drew Adams, socially conservative and from one of Woodland Village’s wealthiest families, lives within the limits of his father’s expectations. A successful architect, Drew is content with his work and his marriage. The secret he desperately hides remains safely hidden behind lies and deception, so he thought.
Best friends in high school, Skye and Drew were inseparable. Quiet and serious, Drew was drawn to the outgoing Skye and his hippy loving parents. Then graduation night changes everything. Uncontrollable urges are discovered in a night of passion, a love Drew refuses to acknowledge, a love Skye refuses to deny. Skye leaves town, leaves Drew and leaves all his feelings behind. But he never forgot Drew and that one night that changed their lives.
Years later, painful memories surface with Skye’s arrival and Drew’s carefully constructed world begins to unravel.

RYAN’S HARBOR – Book 2
One-night stands and pretty women don’t seem to give Ryan that buzz that it once did. When he meets his architect, Martin Pierson, there’s a deep connection that goes beyond friendship. Can they cross the barrier into love?
The boys of Woodland Village are back. This time it’s Drew’s brother, Ryan Adams, that’s going through a crisis of doubt. He’s always been the guy who breezed through relationships, never getting serious with the women he dates. He doesn’t know why, but one-night stands and pretty women don’t seem to give him that buzz like before.
Then one night, at his brother’s barbecue, he encounters Drew’s assistant, Martin Pierson. Martin agrees to design Ryan’s new building for his gaming company – Fantasy Arts. As they spend time together in and out of the office, their working relationship grows into friendship and something more. But Martin can’t forgive himself for causing his brother’s death to allow for love. Ryan wants to be Martin’s safe harbor, a steadfast place where Martin can heal his heart. But can Martin put his trust in the notorious playboy of Woodland Village?

JOHN’S MATCH – Book 3
Fantasy writer Scott Marwick just might be John’s financial savior if John can convince Scott to sign over the character rights for a new computer game. John befriends Scott for one purpose — to get him to sign — never planning on falling in love. When John shatters Scott’s trust, can Scott forgive and move on from his past mistakes?
John Kramer discovers two guys humping on the hood of his Ferrari in the parking lot of the local gay bar. When he finds one of the pair alone and in a drunken stupor, John drives him home. To his surprise, the young man’s father is his new next door neighbor, Scott Marwick. Tempers flare when Scott accuses John of getting his son inebriated and taking advantage of him. John plans to never see the man again.
Then John’s boss flips out when he finds out the jerk next door is the Scott Marwick, a temperamental, but famous fantasy writer. The elusive author could save their company from financial ruin if they can get him to sign over his characters for a computer game. Ryan insists John befriend Scott, show him around the Village and get him to agree to a meeting.
The last thing Scott needs is friends. He moved to Woodland Village to forget about the past and to write. Since his partner’s death three years ago, he hasn’t written one word, and his agent, publisher, and fans are clamoring for the final book of his award-winning series. His life is spiraling out of control and he doesn’t know if he can finish his series. He doesn’t need the complication of love and he certainly wouldn’t associate his name with a computer game.
But when John’s life begins to fall apart, Scott must decide where his loyalties lie — with John or his principles.

Ryan and Martin have joined us on our last day.  If you missed any of the tour stops, you can go back to read our couples answers. I will miss hosting these boys from Woodland Village…

HOST:  Martin this question pertains to Ryan’s past reputation of being a player among women. Then he meets you, falls in love and settles down. Many coin your romance ‘gay for you’…do you think Ryan does?

Martin: (Looks pensively at Ryan, then grasped Ryan’s hand) At first, I took his interest as bi-curious, more than ‘gay for you’. I did think he’d get bored with me. I admit that I didn’t trust that he wanted anything long-term. Why would he, a straight guy, right? I knew that he was a sexually kind of guy, up for anything. I’ve even heard he had threesomes, you know, with two guys and one gal.

Ryan: Hey, you make me sound like a slut.

Martin: Well…if the shoe fits…

Ryan: (Shakes his head) When I dated I always remained faithful to that person. If they wanted to be a little kinky, hey, that’s cool.

Martin: If you call a relationship dating for a month.  (Turns to Ryan) So when I suggested a threesome, you shot me down? Is it because it’d be with three guys?

Ryan: Fuck no! (Tilts up Martin’s chin) It’s because I won’t share you with anyone.

Martin: (Eyes sparkling as he smiles.) Yeah, yeah, got it, and you know I was just teasing you. I feel the same way. Anyway, back to the question. No. Ryan would not call our relationship ‘gay for you’. Labels are difficult at times, even though I know they are needed. But Ryan, he loved his best friend in high school, even kissed him. He never flinched having another guy in his bed, or thought too much about it.

Ryan: (Holds up his card which has a big NO with an exclamation mark next to it) I hate when they label our relationship like that. I am with Martin because I love him. Yeah, he’s a guy, and yeah, I dated women before Martin. Could I ever see myself with another man, if god forbids, something happens to Martin. Maybe. I do find other men physically attractive, and in many ways I’m more compatible with a man. Does that make me bi? I can’t worry about that shit.

HOST: Thank you for your insightful answers. I so enjoyed having all of you here. If you would like to hear more from our couples, head on over to the alternative blog tour stop! And, don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter for a chance to win an Woodland Village ebook.

Excerpt

Skye took out two glasses and cleaned them with his shirttail. He shoved the bottles back on the shelf and poured the brandy while shutting the cabinet door with his foot. He handed a brandy to Drew. Did he dare sit next to him? Or, should he play it cool?

Skye sank into the armchair across from Drew. Yeah. Better to play it cool.

Drew looked around the room. “This place has real possibilities. The location’s fantastic. Bay windows would open this room and bring in the ocean.”

“I don’t plan on living here.”

Drew swirled the brandy in his glass, the thick liquor coating the sides. “You’re not more than two hours away from New York by train.”

“It might as well be eight. It’s another world.”

“It’s your home.”

“Was my home. There’s no reason for me to visit, not anymore.”

Not when you don’t want me.
