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.

Novella~32k words. MATURE CONTENT. Warning: Violence.

Everyone in the firehouse froze, eyes wide. Gael stopped, one foot raised, as a plethora of Christmas decorations scattered across the floor. Glitter, tinsel, and fake pine branches floated down from the second level through the circular hole in the ceiling where the old brass pole once was. Gael gently lowered his foot, careful not to crush an ornament with his heavy duty work boot. 

Cautiously leaning over and tilting his head, Gael peered upwards, to see a red-faced rookie staring back down at him in shock, mouth open in dismay, the remains of a cardboard box still in his hands.
“I said get the decorations down from the attic, not toss them over the balcony, Ramirez!” called a bass voice, the owner hidden on the other side of a 5,000 gallon tanker. “For fuck’s sake!”

The rookie yelped and pulled back out of sight, obviously terrified. 

Chuckling, Gael shook his head and made his way through the debris field, heading for the back of the garage. He cleared the rear of the tanker and saw the man he was looking for— tall, built like the firehouse he ran with an iron fist and a lightning-quick smile, Captain James Riley of Engine 29 was an imposing figure. Gael was tall at six-one, and Jim towered over him at six-five. Thirty years of working as a fulltime firefighter had given him a rock hard body, an outlet for his Irish temper, and the wisdom to know when to use it. At forty-eight, Jim Riley was still a stunner.

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.
