On March 30, my newest novella, Happy, will be released by Dreamspinner Press. This will be my second book launch in three months, and while of course I’m excited, I’m also exhausted from back to back promos, which is not my strong suit on a good day.
Happy is a spin-off from an earlier novella called When Adam Kissed Me. Now, usually I stay away from series and sequels, but in this case a minor character kept nagging at me to create a story for him. So two years later, I finally gave in and let Peter Georgiou have his way.
Growing up Greek-Canadian, Peter Georgiou always knew his duty was to his family, for whom twenty-first century rules don’t apply. In his early thirties, Peter still lives at home, dates who his parents tell him to, and works at the family restaurant. But watching his two best friends find happiness in each other’s arms has made him worry over his destiny.
When Louie Papadakis returns home to nurse his broken heart and start a new life, he can’t believe his sister is dating his high school crush, Peter. There’s a sadness behind Peter’s eyes that draws him in, and a chemistry he wishes he could ignore. After his closeted ex broke his heart, Louie is afraid to fall in love again, especially with a man who’s keeping secrets.
As Peter finds himself drawn to Louie in unexpected ways, old and new worlds collide. Then a family crisis forces Peter’s hand, and he must decide if he’s willing to sacrifice his happiness for family duty.
Happy can be read as a completely stand-alone story. To read an excerpt or pre-order, head to Dreamspinner Press.
