PAST LIES Released!


Available NOW at Ellora's Cave!

Two opposite men, two different lives, two sets of past lies.

With his twenty year high school reunion looming, Paul Loughton dreads seeing the one person who could tempt him to stray from his path. Small town mayor, lawyer and budding politician, Paul can’t—won’t—admit he’s gay, even to himself. Years of denial and lies are now threatened by an inevitable encounter. With his denial slipping, he has to come face to face with temptation.

Randy Martin left his small town roots behind before the ink on his diploma was dry. The cliquish world of his childhood didn’t have room for the weird kid from the wrong side of the tracks. Rumors of his sexual preferences made life that much more difficult. Now, twenty years later, he should be anxious to rub his wealth and success in the faces of his former classmates. Except with one of them, the urge to rub something else hasn’t diminished over the years.

Hey Shayla

Very nice read- I picked it up from Ellora's yesterday.

Favorite line: “I just ran across Diane Warren. Does she have a painting aging in a closet somewhere?”

I burst out laughing at that one. It was true at so many levels!

Anyway, good to see the Nano project in print. Good for you, and good luck on your project.

Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed Past Lies.

And you may be giving away your age if you understood the line about the painting. Not too many people these days have read the Picture of Dorian Gray. LOL I know I read it a long long time ago in high school!

Thank you for stopping by!
