"Little Death" published in the anthology I KISSED A BOY

The anthology "I kissed a boy" of Ravenous Romance is about first time encounters of the erotic nature between hot men.

Very hot. *forces images of hot men back into the box and wandering mind back to writing*

There are great stories in there, about men realizing for the first time, to their surprise, that they desire one another.

My story (contemporary m/m erotica) is set in Costa Rica, where I lived for three years. I actually wrote it while staying in the national park in which I placed the story (Cahuita national park, Caribbean Coast). It is a lovely place, part of the coastal jungle, full of colors, exotic flowers and birds and monkeys. I have walked the trails I made Luke, my protagonist, walk.

Luke knows he can’t be gay – he just appreciates the beauty of the male body. Or so he keeps telling himself until he meets Troy.

Luke travels to Costa Rica in the hopes of coming to grips with his brother’s death. After he gets mugged in a national park, he wanders, lost in the coastal jungle, until he is rescued by Troy, who is mourning his mother’s death. The two men bond over their recent loss, and Luke's attraction to Troy grows, but he still holds back. Will Luke take a leap of faith and kiss the other man, and so give them both a chance at happiness?

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! :-)
