Blurb: Actor Chase Riley is road tripping his way home when he is abducted. A delusional fan is convinced that Chase is really Elliot, the character he plays in a popular cop series. In order to survive, Chase must channel all his TV character’s smarts, while trying to convince his abductor that he really is just a very good actor.
Chase’s boyfriend, co-star Aidan Buffett, is on a trip with his sister when he gets news of Chase’s disappearance. Trapped in an airport in Mexico trying to get home, Aidan is both terrified he will never see Chase again and tortured with guilt for allowing his lover to travel alone.
When Chase makes a desperate attempt to escape, the consequences are serious. And though Aidan will get to see his Chase again, it is with no guarantee that his boyfriend will survive to tell the tale.
Excerpt: Chase pulled himself to the other side of the bed, ignoring the blood that started to trickle from his cut wrist, and—got it! The telephone clanked loudly as he snatched it. Chase dialed zero.
“I n-need help. I need help!”
“I’m being held against my will. I am—”
“Sir, we do not appreciate pranks.”
“I’m not kidding! My name is Chase Riley and I’ve been—”
“Yeah, and I’m Paris Hilton.”
“Damn it, listen to me! I’ve been kidnapped. The men who rent this room, Luke and Bob Nelson, they are—”
For the –nth time Chase was interrupted.
“There are no such names on our guest list, sir. That room was paid in advance by a Mr. Coleman. Good day.”
Hi, everyone! First off, I’d like to thank The Novel Approach for hosting me for the cover reveal. It’s a short story that will be released next year by Breathless Press. I’m not going to say a lot. It’s just that the topic of this story is abduction, my second one after A Single Black Rose. I guess I have an abduction kink. 😉
About the Author: Meet the author: Iyana writes M/M short stories and novellas. Her works have been published by Evernight Publishing, JMS Books, Books to Go Now, Torquere Press, Bitten Press, Leap of Faith Publishing, Breathless Press, and Alfie Dog Fiction.
Iyana lives in Jakarta, a city famous for its traffic jams, a lot of cars and motorcycles, and people selling stuff on the roads. You can spend two hours on the road going to a place you can reach in half an hour in a normal situation. Thanks to the traffic jams, though, Iyana can come up with a lot of stories, mostly shorties, as she prefers to spend the time during her trips writing into her cell phone rather than sleeping.
Another thing Iyana loves is kitties. Right now she has three of them. Their names are Cil, Horus, and Betsy. When she doesn’t write, she plays with them, or they would play with her when she writes.
