The Music Within Book 3
Andy Holcomb, heir apparent to the Holcomb Oil Empire, is keeping a secret from his family. When his “good old boy” grandfather uncovers it, Andy is tossed out and disinherited. With nothing but forty bucks and some clothes, Andy leaves Texas and joins the Marines.
Bryan Moore grew up in the projects of Chicago, the oldest son of a mixed-race father and white mother. When tragedy strikes his family, Bryan does his best to help his hard-working mom raise his three siblings. After high school, Bryan joins the Marines so he can send money home to continue helping his family.
After proudly serving their country for eight years then spending six months unable to find employment, a chance meeting at the VA brings Bryan and Andy together when a stranger offers them a job on a cattle farm. Both Andy and Bryan eagerly jump at the opportunity.
A bond of friendship is immediately formed, and though Andy is gay and Bryan considers himself straight, their friendship holds no judgment. Spending all of their time living and working together tests their relationship on many levels. Andy knows what he wants even though he’s not Bryan’s type. Bryan is confused by his changing feelings for Andy though he can’t deny the attraction. Neither one is willing to wreck the best friendship they’ve ever had.
Samuel Dexter Book 1
The Ghost in the Mirror
What do you do when you have no memories of your life except the one moment that took everything away?
My name is Dex and I am a Marine. Somewhere in the horrors of the sand overseas, an explosion took out not only most of my unit but also my memories of everything that happened before that day. When my memories don’t return, the explosion costs me my last two years in the military. That one moment in time costs me everything.
Starting from scratch sucks. I don’t even know what food I like or what type of music I listen to. Am I a boxer or briefs man? Do I like women or men? I also have to figure out what I’m going to do with my life from this point on.
While I’m adjusting to my new life, I start seeing things. Not things from my past, but things that no one else can see. Things that show up in the light of day. I think that maybe my head injury caused more than amnesia – it addled my brain to the point that I’m hallucinating. When one of my ‘visions’ won’t leave me alone, I have no choice but to believe in ghosts.
Along with the ghosts during the day, at night I dream vividly of two men. But are these two men merely dreams, or are they memories? When one man steps through the door of my hospital room, I have the answer. This man literally tries to lead me down memory lane, culminating in a searing kiss. Too bad my brain isn’t cooperating because this man is breathtaking.
With the help of my sassy grandmother, I begin to rebuild my life.
I am Samuel Dexter, and these are my stories.
