The Whitetail series is a set of two stories (a novella and a short story) that are free prequels to the Romancelandia series. I recommend you read these two in order.
Vol 1—Whitetail Rock
This is a free story that I wrote as part of Goodreads M/M Romance group’s Hot Summer Days event.
For an excerpt of Whitetail, click here. It’s available for download as a pdf here. It can be downloaded free from All Romance eBooks in other formats here. Blurb is below
Nikhil “Nik” Larson is a snarky, dark-skinned adoptee from India who grew up in the Whitest Town in America. Back to visit his parents Nik meets Trooper Jurgen Dammerung, a blond, butch motorcycle cop who’s so hot he leaves a con trail wherever he goes.
Jurgen is the epitome of everything Nik hated about growing up the lone Indian boy among a town of white people. But Jurgen surprises him rather (ahem) pleasantly, in spite of — or because of — Nik’s attempts to needle him. By the end of his visit, Nik realizes he likes Jurgen. But Jurgen’s so not the relationship type.
Whitetail Rock also won an award from the M/M Romance Group’s Members Choice Awards:
2nd Place—Best Line
Vol 2—The Fix
Another freebie, this is a short follow-up to Whitetail Rock. It features Nik and Jurgen again, and can be read as a stand-alone story. Download a pdf of The Fix here, or other formats at All Romance eBooks.
Confident almost to the point of arrogance, Jurgen never worried about his boyfriend leaving him until he overheard Nik telling his best friend he wants to move out of town. That’s when the macho cop realizes that maybe asking Nik to move back to tiny Whitetail Rock—where he was tormented when he was younger for being gay and looking different—wasn’t Jurgen’s most brilliant idea. Now he’s on a mission to find a way to fix things so Nik will stay. Which should be no problem because he’s good at fixing stuff, right?
Nik isn’t sure what he was thinking, moving back to his hometown after graduating with his MFA. Jobs in his field are non-existent and reminders of some of the worst times in his life are abundant. But Jurgen lives inWhitetail Rock, and Nik is willing to put up with a hell of a lot to be with him. Except maybe Jurgen’s own efforts to “fix” something that’s not broken…
Halfway through Too Stupid to Live I found out about these books. So glad I stopped by to check them out 😉
Yay! Are you going to stop and read them before finishing? I don’t think it should matter, but I’m one of those anal readers that has to read the first ones first. LOL
Well, I was close… but then I got so wrapped up in Ian and Sam I couldn’t stop. LOL! I have to admit though that the couple of glimpses that we got of Nik and Jurgen made me want to get to know them better. 😉
