STRW Author BookSynopsis

Two guys, a train, and lots of steam.

Sam Chancellor has been in love with the steam engine Old Bess since he was six years old. Well, maybe not literally, but even when he’s lost everything else in his life, he’s always had her. But now her place in his heart has been unexpectedly challenged. Her new driver, Ryan Saunders, is the embodiment of all Sam’s fantasies.

Ryan has written off Sam as just another geeky trainspotter—until the moment Ryan sees him without his usual shapeless hoodie and realizes that, for a nerd, Sam’s pretty built.

When Ryan overlooks Sam’s awkwardness long enough to suggest a hook-up, Sam seizes the opportunity—and Ryan—with both very eager hands. Finding common ground in their shared love of Bess, their time together is better than Sam ever dared dream.

But there’s a reason Ryan never talks about his past. And when Ryan’s job is threatened, Sam’s well-meaning intervention puts both Ryan and Bess in deadly danger.

Warning: Contains train geekery, bed-hogging, a hero with no experience and another with plenty to spare, and a spider called Mabel.

Pages or Words: 66,000 words

STRW Spotlight Book Excerpt

Blowing Off Steam by Joy Lynn Fielding

“You’re kind of built for a nerd, aren’t you?” Ryan said. “I guess trainspotting’s a more active hobby than I’d thought.”

Sam should have walked away because this guy was insufferable. Except there was humour gleaming in those eyes as well as something else. Something that if he wasn’t entirely losing his mind was actual, sexual interest.

In him, Sam Chancellor.

“It’s all that running alongside the engines to get the numbers down,” he blurted out before he could stop himself.

To his amazement, Ryan laughed. A true laugh that caused his eyes to crinkle at the corners. It made him even more gorgeous than he already was.

“Ryan Saunders,” he said. “I drive old Bessie.”

“Bessie?” Sam was horrified at the heresy. “She’s Bess. She’s always been Bess.”

“Given I’m the one whose hands have been over every inch of her, I guess she’s allowing me intimacies the general public doesn’t get,” Ryan said.

The low seductive voice and the thought of Ryan’s hands stroking over him the way they did over Bess meant Sam was getting hard. He clutched his satchel in front of him like some sort of shield, except that wasn’t helping at all because it was pressed against his dick and, God above, he was about to get a hard-on, here and now, right in front of Ryan Saunders.

“You haven’t told me your name,” Ryan said.

“Sam,” he choked out. “Sam Chancellor, and I have to go.”

He put his head down and fled.

Where Did the Month Go? This Week At Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

Standard

3d-person-sit-pile-books-reading-book-26141531Where on earth did April go?  It seems like yesterday that the first of April was just approaching and now its almost over.  With the arrival of May, spring finally settles in and we can see summer edging towards us.  What a lovely time of the year!

Spring is a month rich in fertility, new growth, new beginnings are everywhere.  There’s an almost luxurious feel to this time of year.  So it seems with the books releasing as well.  What authors and stories have me over the moon?  Truth and Tenderness from Tere Michaels, the end of her Faith, Love & Devotion series, an all time favorite of mine.  I am savoring every line and paragraph not wanting it to end….it’s truly marvelous.  Joy Lynn Fielding’s Blowing Off Steam has me singing her praises and that of this incredible story too! Barb is loving The Tales of the Curious Cookbook series including Lost Along The Way by Marie Sexton!  Paul loved Amber Kell’s Unexpected Alpha, a book whose proceeds go to The Autism Society of Washington,  so check that out, including the author’s note at the end.  An Intrepid Trip To Love by Charlie Cochet brought a 5 out of 5 stars from Stella while Hoarfrost, in Jordan L. Hawk’s Whyborne and Griffin series, is a favorite of Mika‘s.  If you haven’t already entered that contest, find it here, along with our author review.  Sammy is busy reading and writing as is BJ, more from them soon!  And I have the first in the Round Two stories from the Pulp Friction 2015 Altered States connected series for you this week as well.  More great books are on the horizon and we can’t wait to tell you about them.   What a great way to  end the month of April!

So stay with us all week, here is our schedule along with some favorite covers….
