With Designs of Desire having just released, I though some of you might like to get a peek into the next story in the series, Desires’ Guardian.
Chase Manning is a freelance IT God, best friend to James, and party-boy twink, or at least that’s what he shows the world. When he meets Rhys he’s beyond smitten but when Rhys turns down his advances Chase shuts down his heart. As time goes on though, he struggles to keep his walls up against the man that invades his thoughts, dreams, and heart.
Rhys Sayer is the owner of The Coiled Dragon Agency, the PI / Bodyguard company he and his best friend Mark own. When he first lays eyes on Chase Manning, he’s not in a good place emotionally and causes any possible future together to go poof, maybe. But with a little determination, and the help of his and Chase’s friends, he sets out to win the heart of the one man that he believes was made just for him.
Chase pulled up as close as possible to the front of the Onyx Rose B&B, the hotel where the wedding rehearsal and reception were being held, barely taking in how beautiful the setting was. He had been here before, of course, being it was the very first in a chain of GLBTQ hotels that Carrington Enterprises—Seth Burns specifically—designed and owned. If it weren’t for the building before him, James and Seth would never have met and there would be no pending nuptials.
A young man darted over offering his assistance. Chase smiled, thankful for the full service they offered even though it was set up as a B&B, not a traditional stuffy hotel. "Can you grab me one of those big dolly thingys? I have a lot to transport inside and need to do so quickly."
In a matter of minutes Chase—with Chad-the-valets help—had the tuxes and other clothes for the wedding party, the programs, and a few wedding presents that had arrived early loaded. Chase tossed the man his keys and headed inside to start delivering items.
I hope you enjoyed this little snippet. Desires’ Guardian will be back next Sunday to tease you a little more.
