These stories have not been polished by an editor, just by me, and I will confess that I'm the worst editor / proofreader that has ever lived.
Enter and read at your own risk. Those of you with OCD may wish to have some Xanax handy.

"All We Ever Have" (about 300 .pdf pages) Hank and Scott become fathers! This is the third and final story for Scott and Hank. Dreamspinner Press - the original publisher of "Falling" and "When Memory Fails" refused this third book, citing that it wouldn't sell and would require major rewrites. I disagreed and refused to change anything. I did not send it to any other publisher, but decided to offer it free-of-charge for those of you who love Scott and Hank and have been so patient while I sorted this mess out. Enjoy!
"The Days in Between" (about 310 .pdf pages) Detective Sam Salter wants what we all want - love - but can't seem to find it. It doesn't help that he's his own worst critic. When he looks in the mirror, he sees an ugly giant of a man with too many acne scars and no hair. He knows he's a good detective and he knows he's a good man, but all of the men he meets only seem to be interested in one or two nights with him. He's not complaining, of course, because without the attention his body and other endowments bring him, he's quite certain his house would qualify as a monastery. And then there are the nightmares. At first, he chalks them up to his job. He's seen some awful stuff and has always thought he was doing really well handling it all. But lately, the nightmares are coming every night. Even his volunteer work, at a local gym, helping underprivileged boys learn how to box and keep themselves off the street isn't helping him cope like it used to. But then he meets Kai Reeves, a mysterious stranger who is tall, handsome, even-tempered and up for anything Sam has to offer. Sam isn't one to look a gift horse in the mouth, so he takes Kai home with him that very night, anticipating another night or two of just sex. Sam is surprised at what follows: Four days of sex turning to intimacy, of strangers becoming friends and of lust turning into love. In four days, Sam learns to see himself, who he is, through Kai's eyes. In four days, Sam will have found what he's always wanted.
"Four Months" (about 149 .pdf pages) Eric Mason has moved up to Yellowknife, near the Arctic Circle because he's accepted a job as a teacher. He accepted the job because his bank account was emptied by the latest loser that fooled Eric into thinking he was kind and generous and worth the risk. Kevin Oberman has been up north for years, working on the oil rigs and saving up money so he can return back home to Alberta and buy himself a ranch, with horses...and a husband. It's a dream he's close to realizing, if he could just find the husband. When Eric meets Kevin, he thinks the man would make a good fuck buddy but is certainly not looking for anything else. Four months of uncertainty and weeks-long separations in one of the most desolate of Canadian climates will prove to both men that love will always find a way.
