a place to belong


Genre: Contemporary Romance

Sean Flanagan has spent a lifetime alone and rejected, constantly hiding who he really is.

With a father who deserted him and a mother who despised him, Sean didn’t think things could get much worse … until he was kicked out of home for being gay. Now he’s discovered he has three half-sisters on the other side of the world. This might be his last chance to find people who will love and accept him. But he’s terrified that if they find out who he really is then they’ll reject him like the rest of his family.

Sean arrives in Houston and is stunned by the warm welcome he receives from his sisters. He begins to hope that maybe this time things will be different. That’s when he meets Hayden Johnson. To follow his heart means risking everything with his newfound family.

Hayden is tired of endless dating. He’s looking for a man to love, someone to spend the rest of his life with. His boss’s new brother ticks all the boxes on the attraction scale, but there’s just one problem – he’s not gay.

Will Sean let his fears rule him, or will he let in the chance of love and find a place where he belongs?

Book Excerpt

place to belong Hayden Johnson watched the hot Irish man walk away, admiring the way his denim shorts molded to his butt. The lightly defined muscles in his arms and calves were damn sexy. He caught Carly’s eye and grinned, fanning himself. He gave her the thumbs up and returned to his desk. Carly hadn’t mentioned how good-looking her new brother was. If he wasn’t mistaken, Sean had seemed attracted to him as well. It would be proof there was a God, if Sean played for the same team.

Hayden smiled. Maybe he could offer to play tour guide while Sean was in town.

Then he’d find out for sure.

Evan came out of the office a few minutes later alone. “I’ve left them to it,” he said as he walked past. “You’re coming to Casa Flanagan on Sunday aren’t you?”

Hayden smiled. “Of course. We’ve got to go through the final details for the wedding.”

“Great. I’ll see you then.”

Hayden waved and then glanced at the closed office door. What excuse could he use to get another peek at Carly’s sexy brother? Before he could come up with anything, the phone rang and he answered it.

“Hayden, is Carly still here?”

It was Frederick, Carly’s PR Executive. Hayden hesitated. She hadn’t said to hold her calls. “She’s with someone.”

“It’s important. I need a response before she goes on leave.”

He sighed. “Hold on.” He put the man on hold and called Carly. “You’ve got Frederick on line one.”

“All right.”

He hung up and a few minutes later she came out with Sean. “I’m so sorry, Sean,” Carly said. “I have to deal with this.”

“No trouble at all. I can find my own way back.”

“I wanted to show you around the building.”

Grabbing the excuse, Hayden said, “I can do it.”

Carly and Sean turned to him and Sean frowned. Hayden smiled. “I’m happy to give Sean the tour.”

Carly hesitated.

He anticipated her next words. “It’s no trouble. I’ve finished the report I was working on and could do with a break.”

“That would be great.” She turned to Sean. “Hayden knows this place almost better than I do. He’ll show you everything.”

“I don’t want to interrupt.” His Irish accent was divine and warmed Hayden’s body.

“Not at all. I need to get away from my desk.”

The man didn’t seem all that thrilled by the idea. Maybe he wasn’t gay, but one of those guys who felt threatened by homosexuals. Some of Hayden’s enthusiasm waned. It wouldn’t be the first time he’d got it wrong.
