SecretOfHuntersBog_600x900For Koichi McNab, the shop he and his twin sister Kimmy are opening in Hunter’s Bog Mall is a fresh start after their old one burned down. A way to move on. Especially when he meets the hunky owner of the luxury camping goods store next door. Koichi’s never been an outdoorsy guy, but Will Hood just might change his mind.

Will came to Southern Alabama to establish his own life away from his big, intrusive family—and in hopes of finding Anthony, the lover who vanished two years ago. But meeting Koichi throws everything off-kilter. Anthony was a long time ago. Koichi’s right here, smart and funny and cute, and Will wants him.

As Koichi and Will become friends, then lovers, Will’s past and Koichi’s present tangle into a dangerous knot that brings them face-to-face with secrets, theft, treachery . . . maybe even murder. With their lives on the line, their only way to safety is together.


What was wrong with looking at an attractive guy, anyway? He was only human. And Koichi was awfully cute.


Startled, he shook himself out of his thoughts. Not literally. He hoped. “Hmm? Yeah?”

Koichi’s lips curved into the half-sweet, half-devilish grin that had been screwing with Will’s head ever since his neighbor had walked through the door. “What do I do with this?” Koichi held up a curtain made of embroidered blue-gray silk, so large it hid him from view and puddled on the floor.

“Oh. That’s a tent divider.” Will lifted the heavy material from Koichi’s hands, accidentally-on-purpose letting their fingers brush together. An unmistakable heat flared in those brilliant green eyes for a second. Grinning, Will bent and picked up the bag of sturdy, rustproof metal rings from the floor. “C’mon. We’ll hang it up. It looks a lot nicer than one of those zip-up nylon walls.”

He got a husky laugh in answer. “I’ll bet.” Koichi followed him into the canvas tent, which was set up now but not yet furnished. “So. Glamping, huh?”

“Yep.” He sat on the floor and set the bag of curtain rings beside him. “You want to start on one end and I’ll start on the other? We’ll get done in half the time that way.”

“Sure.” Koichi plopped onto the floor beside him, watched him work for a moment, then started popping rings into place with near-perfect technique. “I’ve never been into camping, myself. If I’m away from home, I’d prefer a four-star hotel.”

Will laughed. “Spoiled.”

“You sound like my sister.”

“I like your sister.”

“You and the rest of the world.” Koichi cast him a coy glance from under his lashes. “She’s gonna be after you to take her camping. Just so you know. She loves camping.”

Will barely managed not to bounce in place like a moron. He could imagine having a wonderful time camping with Kimmy. “Hey, she can come with me anytime. I’d love that.”

Koichi wrinkled his nose. “Y’all have fun.”

Damn, he was cute. Will wanted to pounce on him and give him hickeys, but that might not go over so well. “I bet I could convert you. To glamping, I mean.”

Pfft, went Koichi. “Bet you can’t.”

“Is that a challenge?”

Ally Blue is acknowledged by the world at large (or at least by her heroes, who tend to suffer a lot) as the Popess of Gay Angst.

She has a great big suggestively-shaped hat and rides in a bullet-proof Plexiglas bubble in Christmas parades. Her harem of manwhores does double duty as bodyguards and inspirational entertainment. Her favorite band is Radiohead, her favorite color is lime green and her favorite way to waste a perfectly good Saturday is to watch all three extended version LOTR movies in a row.

Her ultimate dream is to one day ditch the evil day job and support the family on manlove alone. She is not a hippie or a brain surgeon, no matter what her kids’ friends say.

  1. As a former Brownie/Girl Guide, I like camping unless the mozzies are out in force. My aunt’s idea of roughing it is lowering her standards to accept a four star hotel. Each to their own. I haven’t been glamping but am willing to give it a go.



  2. eheheh I love the term glamping. I grew up in the middle of the woods so camping always seemed a bit silly to me. It was going to hotels in the big city that was the adventure, not doing something I did nearly every day. 😛


  3. I’ve only been camping a handful of times in my life but I have enjoyed every time. Now that I’m older, glamping sound even better! Thank you for sharing the post and the giveaway!
