Mid Week Tease: “It was all completely irrelevant, anyway. Balkhi was not gay.” #MWTease

MWTease15Hi everyone,

Welcome back to Mid Week Tease! This week, I’m sharing a tease from my just-released M/M military/interracial erotic romance novella, Desert Heat, which was originally part of the Unconditional Surrender boxed set.

Desert HeatIt was mainly Hunter that kept him firmly in the closet. If the news reached that old bigot’s ears—and it undoubtedly would, as gossip spread like wildfire in the military—well, Wilkes didn’t really want to think about what would happen. Nothing good, anyway.

He shook his head, trying to uproot the unpleasant thoughts before they took hold. It was silly, in any case. Yes, Balkhi was kind of cute, but he was an Afghan, and a Muslim, for Christ’s sake. Both were known for being even more bigoted than his damn boss. If Wilkes came out, things wouldn’t exactly be easy—but a Muslim? Things could turn out very badly for him back home, to put it lightly. That was reason enough for any gay Muslims that existed to keep quiet about their sexuality.

It was all completely irrelevant, anyway. Balkhi was not gay. And even if he was, there was no way Wilkes was going there—it was just too risky for all those concerned. Careers, friendships, relationships and lives would be at stake.

Put it out of your mind. What the hell is wrong with you? The first sniff of a bloke you’re attracted to and you’re thinking about the consequences? Ridiculous. Forget about it and get on with your bloody job, you idiot.

    Great tease Lucy! If the cover doesn’t get you, then the story sure will!

    Oh my goodness, I just want to hold his hand. I’m not sure the stakes get much higher for a man in today’s society. Great job, Lucy. xoxo
