Warm Rush, Book I: Chasing Winter

When Jesse Winter left Connecticut to attend his business overseas, he had no idea that he would be gone three long years. His homecoming is a bitter one. An accident has left his body shattered and his heart cloaked in ice, and he knows he'll never be warm again.

But Keith Taylor, just fifteen when Jesse skipped the country, has other ideas. He's all grown up now, and he's been waiting for Jesse to come home.

Keith's determined to bring the fire back into Jesse's life, and he knows he's strong enough to do it.

Note: This is the re-release of my very first novel. All cleaned up and with some new material, to boot. :)

Jesse and Keith are fabulously complex characters who gave me many thought provoking moments. The sex scenes between them sizzle with sensuality. Mr. McBride pens a sensational story that really grabbed my attention and kept it.

An inspiring first book from a brand new author, 'Warm Rush' cuts straight to the heart with its erotically charged and beautifully crafted narrative.

Writer's Ramblings:

Warm Rush was meant to be a short story. Really short. No more than 10,000 words short. But, as is usually the case with me, I found myself attached to the characters. As soon as that happens, it's over for me, because the characters take on a life of their own.

I wanted to do a spin on the classic 'boy next door' story, and the spin I chose was muscle growth. Although you don't see muscle growth around much as a genre, it's one of my favorites. I blame Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno.

Because muscle growth fiction is so hard to find, I realized I would have to write a few myself to read the stories I wanted to read. The genre might seem a little odd, at first, but a friend of mine was kind enough to say that it's really not much different from a werewolf story-- the character just packs on the muscle and size instead of fur and claws. I like that. It makes me smile everytime I think of it.

I hope it makes you smile as well, and I hope that you enjoy Warm Rush.
