MySexySaturday - OH, WHAT A KNIGHT

February 14, 2015:

In honor of Valentine’s Day, for this week’s edition of MySexySaturday I have seven paragraphs from my latest release, OH, WHAT A KNIGHT. This is not a scene brimming with sexy details, but a heartwarming moment near the beginning of the story. Griff, the main character, is flat on his ass, no job, no home, close to broke, and with no idea which way to turn, when a knight in shining armor happens by.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

By Christiane France


Following the death of his employer, Harvey St. Onge—a local gay man with a reputation for attracting handsome young men and throwing wild parties at his country estate—Griffin Andrews is literally on the outside looking in. Harv had promised to take care of Griff, but when the lawyer shows up and Griff is paid off and shown the door with the rest of the staff, he figures Harv “forgot” his promise. Now, Griff may be stuck in the country, miles from anywhere with no transportation and no proof of Harv’s promise, but he’s a survivor. So he packs what he can carry and starts walking.

Partway into his journey, however, a handsome motorist stops and offers Griff a lift. Shane Walker says he’s just going as far as Peninsula Heights. But by the time they get there, Griff’s life has done a fast one-eighty. He has a new friend, the promise of a job, and a place to stay. It all sounds too good be true.

Now Griff has to wonder—is Shane really Griff’s proverbial “white knight in shining armor” riding to his rescue, or something else?

“I have a spare room you’re welcome to use. That’s if you’re interested. It’s nothing special, but it’s clean and close to the store. It’s just a suggestion. If you say no, I won’t be offended.”

“You charge by the day or the week?”

“The job’s short term, so there would be no cost to you.”

“You sure about that? What I mean is I do have money, I just don’t have that much.”

He punched me lightly on the arm. “All the more reason you should hang on to what you have then.”

This was kindness beyond anything I’d ever known. I didn’t do emotion, but my throat felt tight and my vision blurred. “I don’t know what to say, Shane. A simple thank you sounds pretty inadequate. After all, you don’t know me. You could wake up tomorrow and find all your stuff gone.”

“I could, but it won’t happen. If you were a thief or not be trusted for any reason, you would not have been living under Harvey’s roof. The man was one smart dude who’d learned to read people like a book. He could pick out the good guys from those looking to rip him off at a glance.”
