Haunted by his years at war, Boston paramedic Gael Dominic spends his time saving other people’s lives. An empty house, a single friend, and living at work, Gael is not content with his existence, but he’s close. Gael was expecting his overnight shift on Thanksgiving to be the same as always—manic crowds, heart attacks...until catastrophe strikes, and Boston’s streets run with blood.
On the run from an abusive and politically powerful father, Silas has been on the cold, mean streets of Boston for days, injured, hungry and alone. When he wakes up in the middle of a nightmare, he expects to die in the same alley he was calling home.
Brought together by tragedy, Silas and Gael can’t resist their attraction. Gael may have saved Silas, but it’s his alleyway angel who brings Gael back to life.
As Christmas approaches, Silas and Gael learn how to love, despite their pasts. And as Silas' past closes in, Gael learns the greatest gift he could ever give isn't something bought in a store, but freely given from the heart.

It was times like these Silas really hated being the only child of one of Boston’s most powerful men. Franklin Warner. District Attorney for Suffolk County. Devout Catholic. Devoted public servant. Abusive monster who drove Silas’ mother to drink and left Silas perpetually afraid he would be married to the first church mouse his dear old man picked out of the congregation. And afraid that the next time his father hit him would be the last… and he would never get back up again.
Machines blared, and Silas moaned, the pain responding to his emotions. He could feel every damn twitch and spasm, and everything, literally everything, hurt. He wanted to sleep, to hit that neat little red button the hot guy had given him before mysteriously disappearing when the doctors swarmed him. If he did, the next thing he knew he would be waking up in his dad’s townhouse, and under lock and key.
“You need to leave,” a nurse ordered the cop, and Silas wanted to cheer, but the pain left him gasping, tears pricking at the corners of his eyes. His whole body tensed, and Silas moaned, wishing suddenly for a hand to hold.

About the Author
I’m a thirty something bisexual cisgendered woman with way too big an imagination, but that comes in handy when I’m writing. I have been writing since I was a child, when I took a four page assignment on what I was going to do on summer vacation and turned it into a 100 page fantasy epic all written by hand…in crayons. No joke.
I work a day job, but I can’t share for who, since the Old Man isn’t as liberated as the people who read my books. I’m married, I have furbabies, and I live with loved ones. I adore a certain show about a British consulting detective and his grumpy army doctor, and that spawned an addiction to Johnlock fanfiction, which then evolved into me writing it. Gawd, that’s embarrassing. Put this down in the TMI section of my Bio, okay? I enjoy martial arts, movies where things blow up, and I wish I lived in a Marvel movie.
I live in the beautiful and lonely Berkshire County in Massachusetts, and I see way more wildlife than I care to on a daily basis (bears!). My perfect day is reading surrounded by friends and family who don’t think it’s odd I want to hang out but not talk, and my favorite scent of all time is a cool fall evening with leaves burning….less a scent, and more of an experience.
My writing is focused on gay and lesbian people, who are more than interesting side characters that hang out with the heterosexual MCs. My wish for the future is that when people ask me what I do for a living, I can say, “I write gay romance,” and NOT get weird looks.
My alter ego is Revella Hawthorne, and I'm writing the Bred For Love series under that name.
