Book Blurb

The sequel to A Christmas Promise…

Joshua Trant is doing his best to support his son Micah and Micah’s partner Greg as they approach the trial of Greg’s attackers. This was never going to be easy, especially as Greg wants them prosecuted for a hate crime, but County Attorney Alexander Rycliffe assures them he’ll do his utmost to make sure the perpetrators are held accountable for their actions. Joshua hopes that whatever the outcome, Greg will be happy. What he’s finding more difficult to deal with, is the way he’s feeling about Alex. Joshua has loved two people in his life – Hayden and Rachel – and lost them both. The chance of him being lucky a third time is so slim, the thought doesn’t even cross his mind, until Love – and his kids – give him a push in the right direction…

Alex knows what it is to have loved and lost, and he thinks he’s done with men. Then Joshua Trant walks into his life. Alex soon learns there’s more to Joshua than just a handsome face, and the men finally have what both of them need – a friend. But as the months go by, it becomes obvious to everyone concerned that their friendship has the potential to develop into something deeper – if they let it.

One man who thinks he’s had his chance at love.


One man who has to let go of a past betrayal and learn to trust again.


And both are about to be shown Christmas is indeed a time of miracles. All you have to do is believe…

 


A slow burn for Christmas that makes the HEA worth waiting for.


Contains: two adorable mature guys who act their age, a snarky BFF, reference to hate crimes but no on page violence, delicious food, unsolicited help from well-meaning twenty-something kids, and finally a first time... and a second...


Book Review

There is something extraordinary about mature lovers finding each other, especially when neither of them expects to ever fall in love again. In this novel, Joshua (whom I met in ‘A Christmas Promise’) is in his late forties and while he can see he will be lonely when his kids leave to have their own careers and lives, he doesn’t expect to find love again. Alex is fifty, totally caught up in his career, and his last experience was so awful he never even wants to fall in love again. However, Joshua’s kids and Fate clearly have other ideas… and the result is a wonderful slow-burn romance that warmed my heart.

Joshua is bisexual and loved a man when he was a teenager, but their parents had different ideas and forcibly separated them. A few years later Joshua fell in love and married a woman, had Micah and Naomi, raised them, then lost his wife to cancer two years before – he figures a third time finding love would be “greedy”. He is pretty busy with Micah and his partner Greg living with him, and while Naomi is away at college, she still needs Joshua now and then. When Joshua first meets Alex, he realizes that it is nice to talk to someone his own age and they become fast friends. Joshua doesn’t even realize he is falling in love – probably because he doesn’t even think of looking for it.

Alex is a county attorney who works on bringing Greg’s attackers to justice. His partner of twenty-three years is a bast*rd who just up and left him five years ago, and this has left Alex pretty much traumatized, unwilling to ever trust a man again, and convinced he is better off alone. A friendship with Joshua is easy, but even though Alex is more involved than he wants to admit, falling in love is not part of his “plan” – not that this matters when deeper feelings emerge. It’s more difficult for Alex to deal with the consequences because he actively fights his emotions.

Joshua and Alex’s growing friendship is beautiful to watch. They get along form the start, share various experiences during almost a year, but neither of them sees that there is much more to them than what meets the eye. Joshua’s kids have it figured out and lend a helping hand – or two – much to my amusement and Joshua’s shock. It really is a journey for both of them and the outcome is well worth the wait!

If you like stories full of warmth and gentleness, if mature lovers and the time and care they take with each other are your thing, and if you’re looking for a read that is full of family time, a growing respect and trust, and some very hot lovemaking, then you will probably like this novel.
