Simon Says… Write that Sequel!
by M.A. Church
LOL, I knew when writing Shadows there would be a book for Simon and Hawk. *Grin* I was informed of this by Simon—who was very vocal about the many ideas he had concerning his mate, their problems, and how to solve them. Oh my God, was he ever. And once he got to yakking in my ear, it was hard to ignore him. Simon is hard to ignore period He’s not the shy and retiring type, as Hawk found out.
Simon is very opinionated and outspoken. He has that bulldog mentality. As much fun as I had writing Chip and Jason from Shadows, Simon is the one who really spoke to me. He grew on me as Shadows progressed.
There’s just something about him, lol, that’s hard to forget. It’s kind of funny—even though this series is actually about Native Americans—Simon is the one who sparked book #2, not Hawk. But Simon is the one who spoke to me.
The plot actually came from something Simon and Chip talked about in book #1, so the idea was already there; I just had to expand it. I knew Simon was going to be the more outrageous one of the two, and that Hawk was going to have… issues—shall we say—and a past that haunted him. All that was left was for me to figure out how to bring the two together. As it turned out, I had some Divine intervention in the form of Wha-tay!
About To Touch the Sky
He can run, but he can’t hide…
Centuries ago, Hawk made a terrible mistake which has haunted him since. Fear of responsibility and feelings of unworthiness leads him to denying the mate Wha-tay showed him in a vision. So now Hawk runs his bar, has casual sex, and never, ever dates men with blond hair and brown eyes. But then Simon walks into his bar, and the future he’s feared is about to end up in a brawl if Hawk doesn’t do something—fast.
Simon Carter has a smart mouth and a bulldog temperament. So when Hawk runs, Simon pursues the sexy man, only to be rejected. Just as Simon decides to give up, someone—or something—visits him to change his mind… and scares him to death. Now Simon is backpedaling, and Hawk is in pursuit.
Desperate to reassure Simon and keep him safe, Hawk is forced to reveal his secrets before he’s ready. Can Simon learn to accept things aren’t always as they seem? Is the connection between them strong enough to help Hawk overcome centuries of pain? The only way the two men will move beyond Hawk’s past is for both of them to take a leap of faith.
