Hi all. This week’s guest for Friday Five is author, F.E. Feeley Jr. Thanks for joining me here on the blog, Mr. Feeley! What kind of books do you read for fun? I love Horror Novels. Stephen King, Dean Koontz etc. but I’ve read a great deal of John Inman and Jamie Fessenden along with…
Eight years ago today my M/M/F romance novel, Something More was released at Loose Id. Although Something More was the third novel I penned, it was the first to be released to the public. It’s crazy to think I’ve been a published author for eight years and a serious writer for over a decade now. Time flies when you’re doing something you love.
Doms of The Chambers, Geoff and Kit

By Amanda Young
No one promised Milo a silver spoon, but being disowned was beyond his expectations. Amidst all the drama, he does the one thing sure to make life more complex; he falls in love with a man destined to break his heart.
An Exclusive Excerpt From Reckless Heart
The floor squeaked beneath Cam’s feet as he approached Milo from behind. Warm arms enveloped him. “How would you feel about having me around a little bit more?”
Milo twisted his neck and stared up at Cam. “Are you kidding me?”
“No, not at all.” Cam kissed Milo’s cheek. “I just have a glimmer of an idea really. It’ll take some time and a lot of money, but I think it might be worthwhile to open another refuge house here. I mean, the shelter started out as her baby, and this house belonged to her side of the family. I can’t think of a better way to make the best of my inheritance and honor her memory than starting up another house here, in our hometown.”
“I think that’s a great idea. There aren’t enough programs around here for people in need.” Milo turned and faced his lover. “Does that mean you might be spending more time in town?”
“Definitely. It might take me a while to make sure everything’s secure in New York, but I’d like to eventually move here and oversee things. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the man I love lives here.”
Milo’s breath hitched. He met Cam’s eyes. “Say that again. Please?”
“I love you, Milo. I’m sorry I couldn’t say it before, but I needed to be sure of my feelings. You should know, you’re the first person I’ve ever said those words to.”
“Wait. Let me finish.”
Milo nodded, although he was itching to reach out to Cam. Nothing could top what Cam had just said. There was no way. Nothing was better than hearing that Cam wanted to be with him. Him. And not in some long-distance, every-now-and-then sort of way, but all the time. Like a real couple. Milo finally realized why some people broke out in song and dance. The way he felt right then, it wasn’t outside the realm of possibility.
“Spending the day with you and your family yesterday made me realize something important. I don’t want to go home. I want to stay here, with you. I don’t know what the future will hold, whether this project will even work or not, but I can’t stand the thought of spending another minute alone. I need you by my side.”
Milo swallowed, overwhelmed by Cam’s confession. Never in his wildest dreams had he imagined such a declaration.
Cam tugged on the ends of Milo’s hair. “Tell me what you’re thinking.”
“You have no idea how much I’ve wanted to hear you say that.”
“Why do I hear a ‘but’ on the end of that sentence?”
“Are you sure? I’d give anything to spend more time with you, to really be with you, but I don’t want you to move here, relocate just for me, and then end up regretting it later.”
“Haven’t you been listening? I admit, my desire to be closer to you is part of the reason I’d like to relocate—I’d be lying if I said otherwise—but it’s not the only motive. Even if we ended things tomorrow, I would still want to come here and make the best use of this property. I love you; I want to be with you. However, I’m not naive enough to drop who knows how much money on a project I don’t care about just so I can justify being near my lover.”
“God, Cam.” Now that he had what he wanted, there were so many things Milo wanted to say and do that he wasn’t sure where to start. “I don’t know what to say.”
Cam smiled, his brilliant green eyes twinkling. “You could start by saying it back.”
Milo laughed and threw his arms around Cam, so happy he could burst. “I love you too. You know I do.”
“Maybe,” Cam whispered, softly brushing his lips against Milo’s. “But I’ll never tire of hearing it.”

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well today and ready to kick off a fantastic weekend with today’s post. I’m doing something new this morning. I’m taking part in the Book Boyfriends Cafe weekly blog hop. It’s called Hot For Friday and this week’s theme is all about a hot and swoon-worthy line of dialogue between protagonists.
I’m going to share what I think is a pretty touching mini-excerpt from my novel, Missing in Action.
Tristan stared down at Sara, a serious expression on his handsome face. “Have I told you how much I love you today?”
“Only about a hundred times but I wouldn’t mind hearing it again.”
“I love you, Sara McCoy. You know we still haven’t figured out what my new name’s going to be. What would you say to being Mrs. Stan McCoy? We’ll keep your last name since we obviously can’t use mine. That way you won’t have to change either yours or Sam’s last name.”
“Sounds good to me, Stan. Just don’t get mad at me if I yell out the wrong name during sex.”
“We’ll just have to keep practicing until you get it right.”
The grin that spread across Sara’s face was filled with wicked delight. “Well, you know what they say—practice makes perfect.”
For the entire month of February, I’m discounting my anthology Bottom’s Up over at All Romance Ebooks. For a limited time, you can get it for $1.49 rather than the normal price of $2.99.
