Gage & Collin
Storming Love Series #1
By S.J. Frost

covers/SLS1_GageCollin_Frost.jpg

When Hurricane Lauris strikes, former lovers, Gage and Collin find themselves trapped together with old emotions and passion rising between them.


As a professional rider on the NRHA circuit, Gage Chapman has known success. He's also known discrimination. Many people didn't want an openly gay rider competing in the sport, much less winning again and again on his champion Paint stallion, The Shaman. Wanting to get away from it all, Gage had left Utah to set up a breeding farm in North Carolina and there, he found what he'd always hoped for, a man he could love.


Collin Maddox is the town deputy with his sights set on becoming sheriff someday. He knows local attitudes wouldn't be real pro on voting a gay sheriff into office, so he's kept his sexuality a secret for years. For all the care he has for Gage, his secret tore them apart, leaving them both with regrets and broken hearts.


Now Hurricane Lauris is coming in fast and strong. Gage has refused to evacuate and leave his horses behind. Knowing Gage is alone, Collin goes to Gage's farm to help him, only to find himself trapped there. Hurt, anger, and passion erupts between them. As the storm rages around them, both men wonder if this is a new beginning, or the final ending.
