Guest post by Shiloh Saddler
A long time ago I asked a friend who knew the romance publishing business what was a major difference between a straight romance and a gay romance. Her answer? There are a lot more gay one night stand stories. Men aren’t as much into the romance as they are into the sex. She also pointed out that women were a high percentage of gay romance readers. Needless to say her answer blew my mind.
I came out of the closet right then and there and confessed that I liked to read GLBT romance too. She recommended I write a one night stand story. Her recommendation has been percolating as I waited for inspiration to strike. When it hit it came in western form!
Cowboys are sexy. Cowboy on cowboy is even hotter. *grin*
Country singer Will Conrad is afraid coming out will tank his career. Being a celebrity makes it difficult to pick up a man and keep things secret. A gay one night stand online dating site is his salvation. While he is performing in Las Vegas he agrees to meet the real cowboy with whom he has been corresponding.
A car accident left championship team roper Blake Bonner with a paralyzed leg and a wounded heart. Now fully recovered, he is ready for a relationship, but will his blind date want to be topped by a cripple and will he treat him like a whole man?
When Blake finds out his date is Will Conrad he can’t believe it. He’s been his country crush since he hit the country music scene. But when the paparazzi catch them together will their burgeoning relationship be able to brave the media storm?
“Being on the road doesn’t give you much time for a sex life.”
Will grunted. “You could say that again.”
Working on the road. Moving from city to city. That was something the two men had in common. Something bothered him though. Was Will truly gay? Or was he bi? He’d seen plenty of pictures with women hanging on his arms. Was that just a cover?
He couldn’t just come right out and ask. He had to put it in less accusing terms. “So why did you resort to going on GayMeetUp.com to get a one night stand?”
Will let out a long breath, his cheeks expanding. “It isn’t like I can just pick up a man in a gay bar.” He arched an eyebrow. “Can you?”
“Well…no. Ovando, Montana does not have a gay bar.”
Blake rubbed the side of his chin. “So I reckon we both set up profiles for the same reason.”
“And according to the compatibility test they thought we’d be perfect for each other,” Will said.
For a one night stand. The Bud gave him just enough buzz to loosen his tightly wound nerves.
Will stood, grabbed their empty baskets, and tossed them in the trash can. “I’m going to take a quick shower. Those stage lights always make me sweaty. Feel free to make yourself comfortable.”
“Okay. I think I’ll head to the bedroom.”
“Good choice.” The heat in Will’s eyes made Blake’s core tingle.
“Right after the bathroom. Follow me.” Will led him down the hallway to the back end of the tour bus. He opened the door revealing a large bed covered in a forest green comforter, and an acoustic guitar resting up by one of the pillows.
“Where do you want me to put the guitar?”
“Wherever you want. I’ll be right back.” Will disappeared into the room next door and Blake heard the rush of water.
Instantly he imagined the man’s body naked. All he wanted to do was walk through that door, wrap his arms around Will, and press his mouth to any body part he could easily reach. The man was a walking cover model, and he knew it, but that didn’t stop Blake’s body from reacting like a horny teenager. Picturing water sluicing over Will’s naked chest made his temperature skyrocket. Damn he was sexy.
Of course, he wasn’t physically capable of standing in the shower and kissing Will the way he deserved to be kissed. Blake hobbled over to the bed and ran his hand across the simple guitar. Will had played this guitar, his fingers strumming the strings. He didn’t care where he put it, he mused to himself. Maybe it wasn’t that important to him and he could keep it. He desperately needed a souvenir of his time with Will than just his memories. No one would believe he’d been with the country music sensation. He bit his lip. He couldn’t out Will though…
