His Leading Man

I’m part of the new Love At First Kiss world, one of twelve authors who wrote a story set at a New England college and feature a first kiss.

My contribution is His Leading Man: A M/M Interracial “Love At First Kiss” College Romance. Check out the cover and blurb below!


I live to perform and thrive under the centerstage spotlight. That is, I did, until I met Adam and all my swagger went to hell. I thought playing a gay man in my friend’s student film would be just another role and my rep as a ladies’ man would hold steady. But when Adam’s lips touched mine, all the confusion I’d been running from for years bubbled up to the surface. We connected… on every level.


Dax drew me to him the instant we met, and I hate him for it. After my last fiasco of a relationship, I swore off bisexual men forever. Yes, including one-night stands. But that first on-screen kiss started me dreaming of a life with Dax off-screen. I don’t know if my heart can take another betrayal but the rest of me is prepared to take the risk.

His Leading Man comes out on October 13th and is up for pre-order. LAFK books make their debut starting August 4th. Each book is only 99 cents/available to read through KU.
