Mikael Ferreira seems to have it all—a great career, looks, intelligence, and charm to boot. But his work as a full-time caregiver at Hawthorne Manor barely leaves him time to breathe, let alone date. Then a new employee arrives at the manor and makes Mikael question whether he’s been living at all or merely existing…

Elliot Olsson is Mikael’s polar opposite. Elliot’s autism has always made him feel isolated. Until now. Mikael truly sees Elliot in a way no one ever has. Elliot wants to open his heart to Mikael and connect with him on a deeper level. But wanting won’t make it any easier to overcome the obstacles Elliot knows they’ll face as a couple…

As Mikael and Elliot’s story is beginning, eighty-eight-year-old Walter Hawthorne’s is coming to an end. But while his health is failing, Walter’s mind is sharp as ever—and he has a thing or two to share about life, intimacy, and love with the two young men who seem to know nothing about any of it . . .

Hawthorne Manor, a contemporary LGBTQ+ romantic novel, is an exploration of the foibles of aging, friendship, love, and the beauty that can exist in a found family. It features a house full of eccentric characters, witty banter, and a deeply emotional M/M romance. HEA guaranteed. 


“You mean you can tell if someone is gay?”

Mr. Hawthorne took two sips of his juice. “Honey, can’t you tell?”

Elliot shook his head.

“Then I guess you probably haven’t figured out that Mikael has the hots for you.”

“He does?” So this meant his intuition may have been right… Mikael was flirting with him. A smile parted his lips.

“Oh, Lord!” Mr. Hawthorne twirled his finger.

“How do you know?” He needed to know exactly and commit it to memory.

“Honey, have you not paid attention to the way he looks at you? When the two of you are in here, that damn boy hardly notices that I’m dying over here.”

“You’re not dying.” Elliot rolled his eyes at Mr. Hawthorne’s theatrics.

“If Mikael likes me, then we could be boyfriends.

Mr. Hawthorne adjusted his comforter on his lap. “I tell you, with you at his side, Nurse Becky is as useless as a screen door on a submarine.”

You couldn’t use a screen door on a submarine. The picture Elliot conjured in his head made him smile… and calling Mikael Nurse Becky made him chuckle.

About The Author

Bryan T. Clark is a Bestselling multi-published award-winning author of gay romance, and contemporary books. In his early in life, Bryan learned that he was different from everyone else in his world. As a young African American boy, he was the second to the youngest of seven children.

Long before hormones kicked in and the realization of same sex attraction, it was his light skin and blond hair that made him different from those around him. Teased within his own race for being lighter than everyone else, the kids on the playground called him “Cornbread”.

As a writer, Bryan has taken back the power once given up to those schoolyard bullies. He is committed to bringing his readers stories of real life, with multicultural characters, riveting plots, and where the underdog always wins. He is the founder of Cornbread Publishing: the name empowers him and is a constant reminder that life can have a Happily-Ever-After.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Bryan and his husband of thirty-six years, have made their home and life in the Central Valley of California.
