Hi. Nic Starr here. Thanks for having me visit as I release my latest novel, Andrew’s Promise. Andrew’s Promise is a story about dashed dreams and second chances. It’s about making sacrifices.
If you read Charlie’s Hero, the first book in the series, you’d know Andrew gave up on his dreams, everything accept having his little brother by his side. One of his dreams had been to restore a Mustang and take a road trip across the USA with his best friend, Tanner.
Although Andrew’s Promise isn’t a road trip book, I had a lot of fun checking out road trips. There are some great sites on the web, and did you know Pinterest was full of road trip images? Just checking out the maps and photos made me add a US road trip to my bucket list. *crosses finger to win the lotto*
I live in Australia where we are blessed with a beautiful country—it’s huge with tremendous variation in the landscape. I’ve been lucky enough to see the arid Red Centre, venture into ancient forests, drive through miles of rural countryside and drive along endless stretches of coastline with the glorious beaches and amazing reefs.
One day I hope to see more of the world. I’d love to venture through Europe, safari in Africa, and do that USA trip. In the meantime, I’m allowing my characters to live my dreams which is nearly as good. (okay, not really *wink*)
I hope you are inspired by some of the books you read and find something exciting to add to your own bucket list.
Blurb: Young mechanic Andrew Campbell’s life couldn’t be better. He is about to restore a Ford Mustang with his dad before heading off on the ultimate cross-country road trip with his best friend, Tanner McKenzie.
But tragedy strikes, and Andrew’s life is shattered. Worried his family will be torn apart if he doesn’t step in, Andrew makes a tough choice between following his heart and doing what he needs to do to protect his little brother.
When Andrew pushes Tanner away, Tanner heads off on the planned trip alone. Once Tanner leaves town, his life takes a different path and it’s ten years before he returns. Now a firefighter, he’s never forgotten his first love, and no one has ever taken Andrew’s place in his heart. He’s determined to see if Andrew feels the same way. He just hopes Andrew’s excited to see him, hopes that he’s available—and finally out—after all this time.
They might not have been ready to deal with emerging feelings years ago, but now might be the time for their second chance at love.
About the Author: Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world.
Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told!
When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family-an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters-and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.
You can find Nic on Facebook, Twitter and her blog. She’d love it if you stopped by to say hi.
