Guest Author – Dale Cameron Lowry, Rough Love, #Excerpt #Giveaway

Please welcome Dale Cameron Lowry. Here today to tell us about Rough love and to give us all a chance at a giveaway…

From The Author –

Torquere Press put out a call for short stories where lovers (or potential) do something foolish or have some sort of misunderstanding. I write lots of stories about intercultural relationships and thought it would be interesting to write something where an intercultural couple has a misunderstanding that isn’t about those differences, but is somehow related to them in a very roundabout way; that is, the miscommunication happens because one or both partners make assumptions about the other influenced by those differences.

At the same time, I didn’t want to write something heavy. I wanted something that was raucous and super sexy. Our boys make silly assumptions, don’t communicate those assumptions because they don’t even realize they’re assumptions, and get into deeper trouble until they realize that they’re being idiots. (Though one might be more of an idiot than the other.) But ultimately, they love each other, and figuring out their miscommunication makes for a better relationship—and better sexy times.

rough loveTitle: Rough Love

Author: Dale Cameron Lowry

Publisher: Torquere Press

Release Date: April 20, 2016


College student Blake thinks his new boyfriend, Michael, doesn’t like French kissing. Michael thinks Blake doesn’t like rough sex. Neither are virgins, except in the art of conversation. Can they set things straight before the honeymoon’s over?


I swear I stopped breathing as soon as I looked up and saw him.

Or rather, his ass. My eyes stopped before they could go any higher. He was wearing a pair of mustard-colored stretch jeans with a back seam that perfectly split his behind into two succulent buns as round and steaming as a pair of dinner rolls fresh out of the oven.

I like to tell people I fell in love with him at first sight. But let’s be honest: it was pure, unadulterated lust.
