The Major and the Minor

March 2010

The Greek Island Resort is a popular tropical island getaway and gay destination spot. Nick Bosco also treats it like an all-you-can-eat buffet, engaging in a series of one-night stands from the moment he arrives until the day he meets newlyweds Drew and Alec and everything changes.

Drew just wants to have a good time, but Alec recognizes Nick for what he is. A player that needs to be taught a lesson in humility. Alec knows the game well and relishes the challenge of bringing down such large prey. The cat-and-mouse games proves to be a great distraction for all three men-until actual emotions start to intrude on what started as harmless fun.


Sammy, to join him on his journey, never expecting the other man to jump at the chance.

The station wagon barely makes it as far as Nevada. It dies on the shoulder during a freak summer thunder storm, trapping the two young men, and giving them no choice but to face the secrets they've been hiding, the fears they've been harboring, and the desire they can barely keep at bay.

More Information

James Duran no longer fits in the world. At forty-five years old, his wife has left him, and his job as a pre-press technician was not just downsized, it was completely eliminated. With no reason to stay in the world, James makes plans to jump in front of the train that took him to work every day for twenty-five years. But before he does, he's finally going to introduce himself to the stranger who takes the same train. The stranger who has gorgeous eyes and a wonderful smile.

A stranger who can make the world fit James Duran again.
