Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
The heat and the beach lured Shane Barton. When school break was up his friends returned home and Shane chose to stay. His family refused to understand and broke ties with Shane as well. Taking a deep breath Shane found a tiny apartment and became one of the best bartenders in town.
Inheriting a rundown bait shop and house in a sleepy Florida town seems like providence for Galen Frost. An intended life in pro football crashed and burned because of sabotage and Galen’s own destructive actions. It’s taken awhile to get back on his feet, but now Galen is ready to make the shop a success and his life meaningful.
From the moment Shane spots Galen in the bar sparks fly between the pair. One passionate, sensual night becomes two, three, and soon they are together in every way possible. Neither expected for this to happen, but they won’t question their good luck either. A vacation together seals the deal. Galen and Shane are a couple.
Life couldn’t be better for the lovers. It simply couldn’t be better until of course the past rears its ugly head and Galen’s actions ruin everything they’ve built between them. The possibility of fixing his mistakes are slim to none. First, of course, Galen has to pull his head out of his #@*. Then, begging will be involved.
Scorching hot, sizzling, and loving, Rain and Whiskey highlights a developing relationship between a spunky bartender and an emotionally distant ex-ball player. Rain and Whiskey shows the good, the bad, and the very ugly sides of love. From zero to sixty the heat is on for these characters. Through it all Shane has a heart of gold, Galen on the other hand hits a rough spot that isn’t pretty to witness. Juicy and yet real, the first book in the new Stormy Weather series is able to shine in the sun.
