Genre: Historical m/m romance
Author Name: Keira Andrews
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Blurb:
The war is over. The battle for love has just begun.
As Marines, Cal and Jim depended on each other to survive bloodshed
and despair in the Pacific. Relieved to put the horrors of war behind him, Jim went
home to his apple orchard and a quiet life with his wife and children. Knowing Jim
could never return his forbidden feelings, Cal hoped time and an ocean between them
would dull the yearning for his best friend.
But when Jim’s wife dies, Cal returns to help. He doesn’t know
a thing about apple farming—or children—but he’s determined to be there for Jim,
even as the painful torch he carries blazes back to life. Jim is grateful for his
friend’s support as he struggles with buried emotions and dark wartime memories.
Then Jim begins to see Cal in a new light, and their relationship deepens in ways
neither expected. Can they build a life together as a family and find happiness
in a world that would condemn them?

About the Character

Name: Cal Cunningham
Age: 29
Gender: Male
Birthplace: New York City
Profession: Former banker and newbie apple farmer
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Caucasian
Describe his/her body build, skin tone, height and weight. Include
any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars: Around 6 feet, 200 lbs.
Lean and muscular. Dark eyes and dark, thick hair. Dimples.
Who is the significant
other in your character’s life?
Best friend Jim Bennett is definitely Cal’s significant other,
but their relationship has always been platonic, much to Cal’s anguish.
How does your hero dress?
He’s in a WWII Marine uniform in the flashbacks to the war, and
at the orchard he wears jeans or khakis with button-front work shirts or T-shirts.
How educated is this character?
Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Cal is a Princeton grad, and is very intelligent. He could have
easily had an officer’s commission in the war, but joined the Marines to rebel against
his father.
Does he scrape by, live
comfortably, live extravagantly?
He’s very wealthy, but is content living a simple life at the
orchard with Jim.
What special skills does
your character rely on?
Probably his people skills. Cal’s charismatic and funny, and
is a smooth talker.
What is your character’s
family like?
Oy vey. His parents are rather cold, and he isn’t close to his
much-younger sister. He’s clashed with his father—and his father’s expectations—his
whole life.
Does he have children?
No, and when Cal moves to the orchard to help Jim, he has no
experience dealing with children. Eight-year-old Sophie isn’t as easily charmed
by Cal as most people, and he has to learn how to deal with the complexity of kids.
Can your hero keep a secret?
If not, why not? If yes, why?
Definitely! He’s kept his deep love and attraction for Jim secret
since their days at boot camp.

Don’t Say No 
I read a book some time ago that featured taggers, or graffiti
artists. I found the subject fascinating and had to do more research. According
to an article at the Center
for Problem-Oriented Policing
, there are four major types of graffiti, all problematic
and some gang related. Then there are other articles like this one at Smashing
Magazine
, that portray graffiti as art. Check out the examples they show here,
or these by female
street artists.
I wouldn’t mind having some of this artwork on the building
at my business.
If I did decide to decorate the outside of my shop, how would
I go about finding a graffiti artist? An Internet search brought up a Facebook page, a Tumblr page, and many
more sites all over the world. Not too many in my area, but I’m sure I could hunt
one down, possibly listing themselves as a mural artist.
Beautiful as it is, sometimes the pictures are done without permission.
In Don’t Say No, unwelcome graffiti is painted all over the outside of a spa on
grand opening day. Curse words, not beautiful pictures. My hero and heroine come
up with a creative solution to solve the problem.
Have you ever seen graffiti that you’d like painted on your walls?
Thanks so much for reading.

About the Book

Mixing business with pleasure has never been so much fun
Amber’s life sucks. Her ex got her thrown out of college, then
fired from her job. When she’s hired for a mystery shopping assignment, she hopes
this is exactly what she needs to kick-start her life and get her back on track.
Jaeger is all business when he hires Amber to check out the spa
he’s purchasing. If she can help him prove that the venture will be a success, then
he can build his own future, not the one his family has mapped out for him. Becoming
attracted to his sexy spy isn’t part of the plan.
Amber can’t see how she fits into Jaeger’s world, and he’s too
uptight to ever fit into hers. Circumstances bring them together, in bed and out,
but when a secret from his upper-class life is revealed, Amber must decide if she
can trust him. Or is her life going down in flames all over again?
