LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings

A little taste of the holidays…

Hi all! Today I’m sharing from Toy Run, one of my holiday stories. The “I” is Ian Bowen, my burly redheaded biker, and I think that’s all the intro this snippet really needs.


“So you’re giving toys to kids a state away…. How’d that happen?”

A little smile quirked at the corner of my mouth. I watched the same play out on Ed’s face until he took a quick pull of his beer. He went at it a little too fast and smashed the rim into his lip. A few drops spilled over around his mouth. Damn.


I chose this story because it’s part of the free bundle you can grab if you sign up for the QueeRomance Ink newsletter in November! Here’s the link to subscribe and get five free holiday stories:

    I’ve done that smash of the mouth with my drink and followed it up with a dribble many times… great snippet and I’m off over to QRI 🙂

    What’s he going to do with those drops? They can’t got to waste, right. 😉
