The Sheltering Tree cover (1)

Blurb

The heart of Alastair Harding’s life is duty. Becoming the first gay chief of the Metropolitan police has required certain sacrifices, but Alastair made them willingly. If his life now lacks human connections, he can’t exactly complain—and it’s a little too late for regrets.

Jay Fieldhouse knows all about sacrifice, too. Brought to London for his own safety by witness protection, Jay’s grassroots charity works day and night to save vulnerable kids from a life of crime. But getting close to other people is tough when no one really knows who you are.

When he meets Alastair one night at a charity event, Jay is intrigued by his glimpse of a gentle soul beneath the commissioner’s uniform. The two men decide to run their lonely paths side by side for a while—after all, life is short and good sex is hard to come by.
Then the shadows of the past begin to stir, and the words which go unsaid might be Jay and Alastair’s undoing.

The Sheltering Tree is J.R. Lawrie’s first full-length novel, following her beloved debut anthology, Let Your Heart Be Light.

Crossing Lines Cover

Blurb

When Matt is propositioned by Jasper, a hot older guy, he’s more than down. That is until he realizes Jasper has a boyfriend, and Matt would be joining them both. He’s not into it, especially since the boyfriend is a jerk, so he ditches them both. What Matt doesn’t expect is the lingering disappointment that the handsome man who approached him wasn’t single and he didn’t get a chance to know him better.

Jasper is not used to rejection. He didn’t become one of the most successful and highest-paid executives in all of Hollywood by accepting defeat. So when Matt, the sexy young barista, turns him down flat not once but twice, he doesn’t quite know what to do. Jasper finds himself going out of his way to get to know what’s behind Matt’s reluctance when it’s clear there is a mutual attraction between them.

Crossing Lines is an age gap, opposites attract mm romance set in Hollywood. There’s some angst and plenty of heat, but you can count on a HEA. (CW: references to past sexual assault.) This is the third book in the Hollywood Hopefuls series, but it works as a standalone novel.

Teaser 1

Excerpt

“I’m Matt, by the way,” he said to Jasper, speaking loudly as they walked shoulder-to-shoulder. Jasper smiled in acknowledgement, looking as if learning Matt’s name was the best thing that had happened to him all day. When they were halfway across the bar, heading toward the dancefloor, Matt presumed, they were stopped by someone stepping in front of them, impeding their progress. It was an attractive guy, mid-thirties, with dark hair and a cocky smirk. He held a mixed drink in one hand and a full beer in the other. He extended the beer out toward Matt. Before Matt had a chance to contemplate what was happening, the man spoke.

“I see Jasper was able to entice you before I even had a chance to buy you a drink. My man’s still got it.” He winked at Jasper, and then pushed the beer closer to Matt. Matt didn’t understand what was happening, but he instinctively reached out to take the beer.

“Uh,” Matt looked from Jasper to the newcomer, still not grasping what was going on. “Thanks? For the drink?”

“I’m sorry.” It was Jasper now, his sexy, smooth voice close to Matt’s ear as he sidled up to speak to him. “I’m being rude. Reid, this is Matt. Matt, this is Reid, my boyfriend.”

Matt was certain his what the fuck expression was comical to behold, but really, what the fuck? Eyebrows raised, he turned to Jasper. “Boyfriend?”

Jasper chuckled and nodded. “Yeah, boyfriend.” He looked at Matt with an amused expression.

Looking back at Reid, Matt said, “And you are somehow happy with the fact that your boyfriend picked me up?”

Reid’s smile was predatory. He stepped a little closer to Matt. “Oh, hell yes.” His eyes slid up and down Matt’s body with naked desire. While Matt had liked similar attention from Jasper not five minutes earlier, it felt somehow unsettling coming from Reid. Less like appreciation and more like assessment. Like he was mentally cataloging all the things he’d do to each part of Matt’s body, and Matt wasn’t here for it. Sure, Reid was a good-looking guy in the traditional sense, but there was something that just felt…slimy about him. And Matt had no interest in serving as a plaything for a couple in a relationship. Many guys might be down for a threesome with two hot men, but Matt wasn’t one of them. Give him regular old hookups between two consenting men, and he was happy. Anything too far beyond that started to dredge up a bunch of shit he’d rather forget.

Finn may look like a Romeo + Juliet-era Leo, but he’s out to prove he’s got what it takes to break the teen heartthrob mold. Grayson is a serious actor, with “serious” as the operative word, so he’s not thrilled to find himself hopelessly attracted to his young new co-star.

Starring on a teen soap may have made Finn Everett Hollywood’s latest “it” boy, complete with the 10 million Instagram followers to show for it, but does he have the chops to cut it as the newest cast member on television’s biggest drama, Frost Manor? Finn’s determined to prove himself as more than just as sex symbol and win the respect of his co-star, Grayson Winter.

Grayson is gorgeous, talented, and the celeb Finn has been secretly crushing on for years. Grayson is dedicated to his job. He has big aspirations to be Hollywood’s best leading man, and he’s willing to make personal sacrifices to get there. When his new scene partner is the charismatic and intensely distracting Finn Everett, Grayson is shaken loose from his single-minded ambition.

When Finn and Grayson start running lines, their off-the-charts chemistry has them wondering if big things are in store for more than just their careers.

Running Lines is an MM Romance featuring hot tv stars, Hollywood drama, and a sweet and sexy gay love story.

DENVER

Everyone remembers the night the boy band Eleven broke up. Hearts shattered around the world, including my own.

I made a mistake, and I’ve been avoiding bandmate Mason Nash ever since.

At first it was hard, but eighteen months ago, he made it easier by leaving Hollywood and disappearing.

When Eleven reunion talks start, I’m against it completely. I could really do with the publicity, but I don’t want to face Mason again. I’m sure he won’t want to see me either.

MASON

I don’t miss LA or anyone in it. Not even the guys from Eleven.

So, when they turn up on my doorstep talking about reunions, the last thing I want to do is hear them out.

I hold strong too. Until my eyes land on Denver Smith.

My ex-best friend.

Two and a half years ago, he ghosted me, and I still don’t know why.

I want answers—I miss him—but I don’t want to let him back into my life if there’s a chance he’ll walk away again.

Excerpt

I’m almost done rinsing the dishes to go into the dishwasher when a presence behind me makes me flinch. I’m so tired I didn’t hear Mason come in, but now that he’s practically pressed against me, I need all my strength not to lean back against his big body.

“You know, I’ve heard detergent washes dishes better than just water.”

“Ha, ha, smartass. I’m only rinsing them all before putting them in the dishwasher.”

“They have production assistants for that.”

I spin, and Mason takes a step forward, boxing me in. It’s a brave move considering I can still hear everyone out in the main area of the house.

“Are you hiding from me or from everyone?” His low voice goes straight to my cock.

I clear my throat and look Mason in the eyes. “Haven’t I peopled enough for four days?”

He has me locked in place, and I’m fighting every urge to lean in and kiss him again. That has to come from him.

“I thought today was a good day,” he rumbles.

I got to spend it with him by my side, so yeah, I guess it was good. Exhausting and long, but he’s all that matters.

Mason licks his lips as his gaze drifts down to mine. I mirror his movements.

For the briefest of moments, I think he is going to kiss me.

Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, I silently beg.

He doesn’t. Mason steps away. “You always were a bit of a loner.”

No, come back. I’m not a loner. I just want to be alone with you.

“I guess we have that in common,” I point out. “You ran away to Montana …”

“There’s a difference, though. I didn’t have much of a choice. You surround yourself with people, but you don’t enjoy it. You’ve always been like that. And one day, you’re not going to be able to pull off the nice-guy act anymore. No one is as happy as the person you are on camera twenty-four hours a day. You need an outlet.” He moves to the dishwasher and starts stacking plates.

He’s right, of course, but I don’t want to go there.

“In your words, they have production assistants for that.” I nod toward the dishwasher.

“I’m being helpful.”

“Mm. Helpful or torturous?”

Mason’s deep brown eyes crinkle at the edges like he’s trying not to smile. “Me doing your dishes is torturous?”

It’s sexy is what it is.

I don’t have the balls to say that. “It’s scary. You … doing something domesticated? Never would’ve happened back in the day.”

“You know I’ve been living alone for over a year, right? Who do you think did the dishes?”

I narrow my gaze. “Your mom?”

“I do have the ability to look after myself, thank you very much.”

“But you still can’t cook.”

“You can’t either!”

“I can cook more than you.”

“A turtle can cook more than me. That isn’t an accomplishment.”

I grab the closest dish towel and whip him with it, laughing when his whole body tenses.

“I know you didn’t just do that. There is no possible way Denver Smith threw down that challenge.”

“Why wouldn’t I?”

“Because he knows he will lose.”

“Do I, though? I mean … really?”

“Oh, it’s on.” Mason steps closer to counter where there’s another dish towel, but I step in front of him and whip at him again.

It makes a satisfying thwack against his arm.

“Son of a—” He reaches around me, pinning me against the counter again. “You’re going down, Denny.”

“I wish.” I really do wish.

Mason pauses, and I waggle my eyebrows at him. His mouth drops open, and I take the opportunity to use his distraction to my advantage. I steal the other dish towel, so now I have both.

“Oh, so you’re going to play dirty,” Mason says. “Good to know.”

We struggle and wrestle, Mason’s hips still pinning me against the counter as he tries to get a towel from one of my hands.

Damn, he’s stronger than he used to be.

I spin so I’m facing the counter, and I clutch the towels to my chest, but holy fuck, that’s the wrong move. Because now Mason’s big body is pressed against my ass, and if I’m not mistaken, that very big, very hard thing digging into my back isn’t his leg.

He’s … hard? For me?

I look at him over my shoulder. His expression is so lustful it makes my dick ache. His dark eyes are fiery and focused on my lips.

It’s difficult not to push back and rut against him, but I hold firm because I think he’s going to kiss me again.

His pink tongue darts out the tiniest bit, and then—

He steps back and turns toward the dishwasher.

I blink.

What just happened?

Did he chicken out? Is he trying to drive me fucking crazy?

I startle at a feminine voice. “People are starting to leave.” The production assistant stands near the entrance to the kitchen, her gaze ping-ponging back and forth between Mason and me, and suddenly it makes sense.

We were too careless.
