Stolen Dreams by Sue Brown (Guest Blogger) #giveaway

Where Sue Scratches her Head

One of the difficulties about writing about any group of people is that you can’t speak for all of them. I cannot speak for all gay guys. I know maybe twenty or thirty personally, more online. Guess what though? They’re all different.

Think about it. Does a mainstream romance novelist know all women? Does the feisty heroine speak for the introverted reader, or the shy, retiring heroine speak for a reader with steel balls? I don’t know. I don’t write for them, but I doubt it. Is an MI6 agent the same as a Navy seal? Is an accountant the same as an artist? Of course not. Everyone is different, whether they are the author, the reader or the characters.

I see men say they’ve never read a character who acts like me. I understand that. I’ve never read a female character in a book who acts like me. From my perspective I don’t write for just the monogamous couple or the gay guys who have an open relationship, or no relationship at all. I write for the noisy, irritating couple who’s inhabiting my head this time.

I love writing about men who are different, awkward, painful and at times, bloody annoying. Some of the best characters I’ve read in this genre are all those things and more. And I’ve read some amazing characters in MM romance. They aren’t like the gay guys I know, but I don’t expect them to be.

Sue’s bio:

Sue Brown is owned by her dog and two children. When she isn’t following their orders, she can be found plotting at her laptop. In fact she hides so she can plot and has got expert at ignoring the orders.

Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favourite television series. The kissing was hot and tender and Sue wanted to write about this men. She may be late to the party, but she’s made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction.

Blurb

After cheating on and losing the man he loved, Morgan Conway decided to get his life right. Now he owns a coffee shop and is engaged to Jase, an actor and rising star. All is perfect in his world until the man he thought was gone forever walks into his shop. His hidden feelings rush to the surface, unfortunately there for everyone to see, including his fiancé.

Shae Delamere was crushed when Morgan cheated on him five years ago. But he has a reason for seeking Morgan out. As Morgan and Shae get to know each other again, they discover the extent that friends meddled in their lives to keep them apart. Morgan cannot deny he is still in love with Shae, but he is engaged. With some hard decisions to make, Morgan struggles not to hurt the men he cares about—again. Shae has secrets he came to share with Morgan, but revealing them now could keep them apart for good.

Excerpt

THE GENTLE thudding of Shae’s heartbeat woke Morgan to the new day. That, and some interesting gurgles in Shae’s belly which Morgan had apparently used as his pillow.

Blinking wearily, Morgan raised his head to find Shae still fast asleep. Even now he looked exhausted, purple marks marring the pale skin under his eyes. They hadn’t fallen asleep until the early hours of the morning, Shae making good on his promise to let Morgan fuck him until they were senseless. Morgan frowned as he traced the dark lines. The man was obviously not getting enough rest.

“Stop staring at me.” The words were sleep-slurred and grumpy. As far as Morgan was aware, Shae hadn’t actually opened his eyes.

“I like staring at you,” Morgan said.

“Creepy stalker much?” Shae grumbled but with the hint of a smile.

“You’re in my bed. That hardly counts as stalking.” Morgan buried his face in Shae’s neck, feeling the rasp of Shae’s beard stubble across his cheeks. His dick was little more than half-hard after the night’s exertions, but the feel of the soft hair on Shae’s thigh was adding a frisson of pleasure.

“It is stalking if you stare at someone while they’re asleep,” Shae insisted, finally cracking one eye open long enough for Morgan to see a glint of green.

Pressing his mouth to the hollow at the base of Shae’s throat, Morgan could feel Shae’s life pulse beneath his lips. “It’s just admiration, and a little amazement that you’re here in my bed again.”
