LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings
Hola Snippetteers! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far!
Today I’m snippetting from my new indie release—which is two of my first MM Romance novelettes put together into a Mature Heroes volume. Both couples featured in the ebook are over 40 (nope, that’s not their combined ages ;)).
This is from A Sunday Kind of Love and Jake (the main character) is in his friend’s salon in LA with the boy who calls him Dad, for an impromptu makeover.
Both spent a quiet moment not quite looking at each other in the mirror when Antonio said father-son facials were on the house as a graduation present. Jake didn’t want to remind him of the honorary nature of his title, and it’d been too long since his last facial anyway. He pretended not to see Antonio’s look that said it’d been a long time since he’d indulged in a lot of things the salon had to offer.
After a fun couple of hours Jake and Jacob headed for the car. Jacob stopped just outside the door to admire himself in the window’s mirror-like surface.
“You should go on back and talk to that guy whose chair you were in. He was checking you out, Dad.”

I love this gorgeous cover from Natasha Snow Designs!
It’s never too late to find love. These two novelettes showcase mature heroes finding happiness…and a little more.
NOT THE DOCTOR
A moment of distraction on a lonely highway leaves middle-aged widower Joe Prescott with a broken arm and in need of surgery. He’s no stranger to long hours spent alone in his apartment, but until his arm heals, independence will be a luxury. Joe is used to helping others and doesn’t realize the strength it takes to accept a helping hand, especially from the neighbor he’s had a crush on since he moved in.
Kai Hosino, “retired” chef, lives with his elderly Aunt Tilly so they can help each other navigate life with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Kai is drawn to the silver fox next door, but his painful history of falling for straight men makes him hesitant to take a chance.
A SUNDAY KIND OF LOVE
Jake McKynnie, middle-aged jazz musician, has the chops to solo—in every sense of the word. He’s living a lonely life in LA, convinced that’s the best he can expect. DJ, the boy who calls him Dad, turns up the day after his high school graduation like a sucker punch from the past. DJ grew up in a small Oregon town with his mom and stepdad, but now he’s come to Los Angeles with big dreams of becoming an actor. He’s not above doing a little matchmaking for his lonely father while he’s at it. Their celebratory trip to the salon could be the catalyst for Jake’s duet with the enigmatic stylist, Mason. If Mason sticks around long enough to replace the ghost from Jake’s past.
2nd Edition: both stories were previously published under the name Charley Descoteaux, content has not been updated substantially.
