Something to warm you up in all this snowy weather:

Light the Fire

Learning to live—and love—again

Two years after the death of his lover at the hands of bigots, Kurt’s still not looking for another relationship, even though the big old house he bought with Raoul seems cold and empty these days. But there’s a perky kid at his gym who just won’t take no for an answer.
Matt can tell there’s more to Kurt than just a great set of pecs. He’s drawn to the big guy’s caring, protective attitude as much as to his muscles. But when push comes to shove, can Matt show Kurt he’s not just a big mouth in a small package?

Out today in ebook from JMS Books.
This short story first appeared in the Someplace in this World anthology, now out of print.

‘Light the Fire’ by J L Merrow was intensely romantic and I adored the way that Kurt dealt with Matt’s flirting and the outcome. This story left me feeling deeply moved and satisfied. Hot, poignant, romantic, it hit all the right notesJane Davitt’s review of Someplace in this World anthology.

a funny love story with a serious side – Lena Grey, QMO

And I’ll be over on the JMS Books blog later on today, talking about my fascination with the gym. Winking smile

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:
