Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or published, or a recommendation of someone else’s work with at least one LGBT character. Posted at Rainbow Snippets here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/963484217054974

We’ve been posting from the new anthology “Three Left Turns to Nowhere” from Bold Strokes Books https://www.boldstrokesbooks.com/books/three-left-turns-to-nowhere-3805-b three interconnected M/M romance novellas from three different authors all set in Hopewell, Ontario, a little town with a magical knack for bringing people together.

‘Nathan Burgoine’s story “Hope Echoes” closes out the collection. Fielding Roy is also stranded in Hopewell. He crosses paths with some people and places we’ve met in the other two novellas. He also has an unwelcome knack for seeing things that have happened before. One echo of the past in particular has been appearing to him; maybe because of the magic of Hopewell.

When he opened his eyes again, the hot guy in shorts and the tight blue shirt faded into sight at the corner of the intersection, took a few steps, waved at someone and faded back out. The guy was dedicated to his waving, that was for sure. But this time, Fielding noticed more than his calves, though they still stole the show. It wasn’t just blue shorts and a shirt, but some kind of uniform. And the man sported a tattoo around his left biceps.

As echoes went, at least it was fun to look at. Had he ever had hot beefcake replaying before?

Went a line or two over six, but it was just too good not to have in here. Again, I recommend “Three Left Turns to Nowhere” and its fine trio of authors; Jeffrey Ricker, J. Marshall Freeman and ‘Nathan Burgoine (who we saw here.)

So see you soon, and may all your turns lead to romance and happy reading!
