Release Date: January 31st 2017
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance
“He's waiting for me to ask, and I'm afraid.”
“I'm just one more gay guy here.”
Moving to the suburbs of L.A. was supposed to give Nic Montero a fresh start. After escaping his family, coming out as a gay trans man, and excelling in computer programming out of desperation to get financially stable or die, everything should be easy. But joining gay culture now, post-transition, feels impossible... until he runs into the force of nature that is Kyle. Everything Nic isn't, Kyle embodies. Green hair, garters and cut-off shorts, sports jerseys, and all, brash Kyle is the most gorgeous man he's ever laid eyes on, and he pulls Nic headlong into the center of his world. If only Nic felt like enough for a man like Kyle.
“One-night stands are my only option.”
Loud, loving, and too much for most men to handle, Kyle Everett catches eyes and occasionally scorn... even at his job at the local HIV charity, Plus. His days and nights are spent at work, his precious spare moments spent with his son, Kevin, when it's his turn to co-parent, or his best friend, drag queen River. He only has money or time for cheap flings, but the lanky otter who walks into his life makes Kyle want to hold him for longer than a night. He knows what it's like for Nic to be without a family, but he isn't brave enough to let this man into his life... until his charity is targeted by bigots, and Nic's there for him.
“I'll stay with you if you're brave enough to be you.”
Nic spent his twenties avoiding family and even his own femininity, but his yearning is impossible to ignore. Kyle's used to flying solo, but Nic offers him safety and fills gaps in his life he never realized existed and now can't stand. Living in close proximity, they can't run from their attraction, but they're each used to being rejected, with the emotional scars to prove it. Can two men who feel like they're not enough and too much find something just right?
Flaunt is a steamy, stand-alone gay romance novel with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
They’d finished their breakfast before Kyle spoke up about it. “You really don’t mind if I stay here? I have other people who can help.”
“I don’t mind at all,” Nic assured Kyle firmly, straightening up in his chair as he arranged his cutlery in the twelve-o’clock position. “I don’t want you going home by yourself.”
Unspoken was the other thing hanging between them: he didn’t want to push Kyle away at all, let alone sometime like now when he was vulnerable. Nic wanted to be there for him, more than financially.
Whatever Kyle said about it, he felt like he had something to prove now.
“And there’s no strings attached,” Nic added quietly and caught Kyle’s gaze. Those long lashes fluttered as Kyle blinked a couple times, glancing between his eyes. God, he could look into Kyle’s eyes all day… but now wasn’t the moment to give him romantic eyes.
Kyle smiled, sighed slightly, and murmured, “We’re a little past that now.” Nic hadn’t expected those words from him. He drew in a sharp breath, then nodded silently. It hadn’t just been a one-time thing, then, last night. Kyle was up for something more. But Nic didn’t want to fuck anything up by pushing harder, and now wasn’t the time.
He hoped Kyle would say yes to his offer, but for now, he just enjoyed the moment. It was a cozy domestic scene: the breakfast plates between them, both of them shirtless and leaning back to look at each other sideways.

About the Author
was proficient in real estate ad shorthand (the old-fashioned newspaper kind) by the age of nine. Growing up moving constantly taught him what people have in common, the ways relationships are formed, and the dangers of “miscellaneous” boxes.
As a teen, he tore through a stack of found romance novels, wishing someone had written similar for M/M, though he could never find anything at Chapters or the library. Just after graduating university in 2013, semi-out and clutching his English B.A. for dear life, he stumbled on an Amazon M/M short story. It was a whole new... phrase he dares not repeat for fear of lawyers.
It shone and shimmered splendidly, though.
After failing forty times to avoid crafting happily-ever-after endings for steamy short stories, he plunged into romance novels and hasn't looked back. As a young gay author whose formative gay fictional role models were characters punished for their sexuality, Ed prefers his stories lightly dramatic, full of optimism and hope.
Now out and proud, he writes full-time, goes on long nature walks, tries to fill his passport, drinks piña coladas on the beach, flees from cute guys, coos over fuzzy animals (especially bees), and is liable to tilt his head and click his tongue if you don't use your turn signal.
