Darkness Falls

Matthew Tucker is a successful actor on a hit television show, his career on the rise. Life is good. What more could he want? Daniel Westman, that’s what – his co-star and close friend.

Matthew’s attraction to Daniel grows day by day, feeling there’s something between them, just under the surface. But months go by, with Matthew afraid to tell Daniel he was falling in love with him. Because if he was wrong and Matthew was looking too deeply into it…he’d lose his best friend. So instead Matthew longs for Daniel in silence, until an accident on set may leave Daniel permanently blind. With his friend hurt, scared and confused, his life possibly forever altered, Matthew never wavers from Daniel’s side, no matter how difficult it gets.

His dedication brings them closer than ever before, but is it possible to find happiness, and love, in the wake of a tragedy? Or has Matthew’s hesitation cost him that chance and he’ll lose Daniel to the darkness instead?

Burnin’ for You

Lucas Taylor is a New York City fireman at Station 127, dedicated to his job, even though it has brought him heartrending tragedy – the loss of his lover, Ryan, in an explosion.

Evan Singer is the new guy in town, a paramedic transferred into Station 127 and he sets his eyes on Lucas from the get-go.

Neither knowing who the other is, their first meeting is a night of passion and desire that awakens something inside Lucas he never thought he’d feel again.

But when Lucas discovers that Evan is a paramedic, it all comes crashing down. For despite the feelings he has for Evan, Lucas has vowed to never again get involved with someone on the job, after losing Ryan to it.

Can Evan convince Lucas to open up his heart and take a chance on love again, despite who Evan is?

Includes the sequel – Where There’s Smoke!

Things turn explosive at the FDNY when a young man Lucas rescues from a fire becomes an obsessed stalker, and Evan’s altercation with a victim’s husband threatens to end his career.

Out of the Shadows

For K-9 Officer Shane Walker, transferring from the Tulsa police department to the elite L.A.P.D. was a dream come true. He nearly forgets he’s in Hollywood until he responds to a 911 call that brings him to the home of actor Tyler Donovan.

It appears that Tyler has it all – a career that’s on fire and a loving, long-term relationship with his partner, Alex. But then Shane uncovers the truth that Tyler had been trying to hide, and the illusion comes crashing down.

Can Shane help Tyler break free of a life he’s convinced he deserves before it’s too late, and in the process help them both find love?

An Endless Sea of Stars (NEW RELEASE FOR GRL!)

The year is 2121. While Earth has conquered exploration of the Milky Way, we have yet to develop an interstellar engine to take us beyond our own galaxy. Thus the Intergalactic Exploration Alliance and the Gemini Project were formed.

Lieutenant Tobias Dekker is fresh out of the IEA academy and determined to be assigned to the Gemini engineering team. Putting career above all else. He knows from experience that relationships have no place in the Alliance. Commander Caden Flynn is equally determined to see the Gemini prototype take flight to uncharted space. The engine is his late father’s design and he wants nothing more than to be the test pilot that breaks the next light speed barrier.

Two men dreaming of a sea of stars find that it’s instead an ocean here on Earth that brings them together. Can Cade convince Toby to open up his heart and take a chance on love and explore the universe with him, side by side?

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a sweet, yet sexy story!, August 6, 2014
This review is from: Darkness Falls (Kindle Edition)
Matthew and Daniel are best friends and co-stars on the hit TV show Darkness Falls. But somewhere along the way, Matthew started to feel something more for Daniel, something stronger. He broke off his long term relationship but still didn’t admit to his best friend that he was in love with him. Matthew worries not just about being rejected, but about losing the friendship as well.

When Daniel is injured in an explosion on the set, Matthew moves in with him to help him while he’s healing. Daniel is angry and confused over the possibility of being permanently blind, but Matthew is there to help him pick up the pieces. And then one night, everything changes. Best friends become lovers and learn that they have both been hiding their feelings for way too long.

What a fun read. Miller took the best friends to lovers angle and twisted it to fit her own story of longing and passion between these two men. I loved the mystery of how and why the accident happened. How it brings the two men closer together. And the intrigue, will Daniel get his sight back? And then the way Matthew was determined to feel exactly as Daniel was their first time together, and kept his eyes closed. It’s was just beautiful.

You have to grab this book! I will stay on my kindle permanently so I can read it again, and again…

I have been receiving emails, FB messages etc. on why I am doing a m/m book. I can answer all kinds of reasons why or say nothing at all. So a blog hit me.

Back in January I was sick and could only read. Well, that didn’t bother me since I love to read. But then what author doesn’t. After going through many free books, books I already read, I decided to go through my closet and see what I haven’t read in a while. I came across a folder of things from when I went to Limestone College and got my BA in Social Work.

There was a class where we had to write about an event that happened to us in life. It could have been a life changing event or something dark. But it had to be life changing and not having a child or getting married. We had to have it so long and typed up and we couldn’t have our names on it. It was a class of around 15 adults. The professor passed them out for us to read and evaluate ourselves on what we read.

So I took them out of the folder and read them again. One story stood out to me. It really made me think and reevaluate my life now. It came to me on how I thought about things. Most importantly it made me want to change…better myself…stand up for myself…for what I believe in and what I am passionate about.

As a writer we have many opportunities to write about things we believe in and are passionate about. I like to think of myself as a romance writer with a different message. I always want to inspire people and to give them hope.

I also believe people have a right to love who they want to love. They have a right to happiness and love. I want the hatred to stop. It is time we speak life, hope and love. What a better world we would have if we would love and speak life instead of poison.

To Be Whole

The Love They Had For Each Other Was Strong…

~1867~

Adam Colbert took Jarrod Baker up on his offer to train him in the law end of ranching contracts. Adam always believed you could never have enough education. Jarrod felt something for Adam as soon as he saw him sneaking late into the lecture. As they grow closer together and their love grows stronger, family members and outsiders want to break them apart. Will their love last or will they be forced to choose?

Excerpt:

Jarrod found Adam at Ser Toda, the place where they had built their house. He sat on his horse and watched Adam for a little bit. He sighed as he got off his horse and tethered his horse to a tree.

He started walking towards Adam, but stopped. He watched Adam staring at the lake.

Adam knew Jarrod had found him. He waited for Jarrod to get closer before speaking. “I can’t do this anymore Jarrod. There are just too many scars, wounds.” Tears fell down his cheeks.

Jarrod felt like his world was collapsing and there was nothing he could do about it. “Adam…”

Adam shook his head. “Don’t, just don’t. I can’t do this anymore. I’m not strong, at least not anymore.” He looked down at the cane in his hand. “I wasn’t even able to help finish our house.”

Jarrod moved closer and placed his hands on Adam’s shoulders and turned him to face him. It broke his heart to see Adam hurting so much. “Some scars are visible and some are not. I can’t live without you Adam. To me you are beautiful, you are my… everything. Every breath I take, every beat of my heart is for you.” He moved his hands up to cup Adam’s face. His thumbs wiped away the tears. “You are not alone. I’m here, and together we can do this. We can make it. Nobody can break us apart or tear us down, as long as we are together. We are stronger together. I love you Adam, and I know you love me.”

Adam nodded his head.

Jarrod got closer to Adam’s mouth and then his lips covered Adam’s.
