READ MY REVIEW

The Christmas Tenor 400x600

Blurb

A trip that he thought would bring him only pain is about to present him with the greatest gift of all.

For three years now, Cabriolet Vermat has put off, wiggled out of, and outright lied to get out of making this dreaded trip east. The owner of Cabriolet Chauffeur Services in Los Angeles has avoided the yearly invitation to the small town of White Bridge, New York, to speak at their alumni winter gathering but this year they’ve outfoxed him.

They’re throwing a dinner to honor his late partner’s dedication to his alma mater and have asked Cab to speak. This time he has to go no matter how much pain it will stir up. Arriving in the picturesque small town beside one of the Finger Lakes, Cab is treated to a special performance of holiday songs and there he sees Julian Gabriel Baez for the first time.

The young singer captivates him immediately, and he finds himself seeking out the much younger man after the performance. The pull he feels toward Jules is unlike anything he’s felt since he met his partner years ago. Confusion and desire war within him, but the outgoing young tenor wins him over with his engaging smile and kind heart.

A two-day trip soon turns into an extended holiday vacation. Cab worries that the magic of Christmas will quickly fizzle out and he’ll be alone once more. Or will this festive season bestow a blessing of the heart upon a man who thought he would never love again?

The Christmas Tenor is a standalone small-town gay Christmas romance with a beautiful May-December relationship, a lonely widower, a rising opera star, loving families, and plenty of holiday joy.

A beautiful age gap romance which warms the heart

58867449._SY475_The Christmas Tenor by V.L. Locey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is definitely my favourite of the three Laurel Holiday books Vicki has released so far.

I do love me a good age gap and this one is a cracker, there’s 15 years between the young and determined trainee opera singer and the world-weary widowed business owner and at times, they feel every one of them.

But, as she always does, Vicki weaves a carefully constructed romance which takes notes of all the potential sticking points and pulls together a relationship you know is going to go the distance, irrespective of the obstacles.

I would love a catch up with these two men 10 years down the line (just saying!)

Twice in a Lifetime Cover

Blurb

One is suffering through a fog of grief. The other crushing feelings of inadequacy. Fate knew they needed each other.

Dominic
For the longest time, I believed we get one shot at true love. A single person that sets our soul on fire. I had that with my wife until she died, then I was lost in a dark sea of grief. In need of companionship, I decided to adopt a dog.

What I found at the shelter was so much more. Micha, the volunteer, is insanely cute and ridiculously funny. He awakens feelings within me I never knew existed. Is it possible I may get a second chance at real love?

Micha
Love just isn’t in the cards for some people. And I’m among those unfortunate few destined to be alone. I trusted the wrong man with my heart once and had it shattered into a million pieces. I won’t make that mistake twice.

Instead, I pour every ounce of my energy into building my business and trying to convince myself I’m not lonely. But Dominic could be the one to tear down the walls I hide behind. He’s the most handsome man I ever met and unbelievably kind. I know he experienced a horrible loss. Is that what’s behind his attraction to me? Or has the connection between us led to his bisexual awakening?

Twice in a Lifetime is the first book in the Sheltered Connections Series. This book involves themes of hurt/comfort, bisexual awakening, and an age gap. Swoon-worthy moments, laugh-out-loud humor, and scorching chemistry make up this 70k word story. Oh, and don’t forget the cherry flavored icing.

Excerpt

“Listen to me Micha. Really fucking listen, because I’m getting tired of you thinking you aren’t good enough for someone. You. Are. Amazing. People love you. There’s nothing about you that people don’t like. Dominic is no exception. Stop fucking hiding. Take this and run with it. Have fun with someone. If it still ends after you tried, I’ll eat a pint of ice cream with you while we watch The Fox and the Hound for the zillionth time and I’ll cry with you.” He sucks in a breath. “But I can’t stand here any longer and try to support you if you can’t even see how wonderful you are.”

“Wow, uh okay. I’m not really sure how to take that last part. Are you still my friend?”

Travis barrels into me, his giant hug squishing the air out of my lungs with an oomph. “Of course I’m still your friend you nincompoop. But I’m not listening to you talk bad about your self any more.” He eases his grip. “Just follow your heart, Mic. He’s a good one.” He stabs me in the chest with his finger. “Let the hope win, just for once, okay?”

“That’s the problem Trav. I don’t trust my heart. It never steers me right.”

He sighs, slumping his shoulders in defeat. “It’s going to get it right some day. Either way, I’ll be here. No matter what I say.” He picks up the spilled pens. “You deserve it just as much as anyone else Micah. Love yourself like everyone else loves you.”

About the Author

rm-neill-logo_final

I’m a wife, mom, animal lover and a hopeless romantic.

I want my stories to make you smile, swoon and snort laugh, but not necessarily in that order.

I hope I can be the author you turn to when you need a story to make you laugh, or add light to an otherwise dark day.

Coffee always wins, you can’t change my mind.
