Felice Stevens' Kindle World Is Live! #Excerpts

World Description

“New York City is the city that never sleeps, a city where anything is possible. For the high-powered gay men of the Big Apple, Happily Ever After might not be too far away. It could be at Sparks, the hottest gay nightclub in town, in the bustling hallways of one of New York’s busiest hospitals, or on the streets of Brooklyn. In a city of 8 million people, endless love stories are just waiting to unfold. Will Cupid strike a dance instructor, a bartender, or a vampire? In Felice Stevens' Memories with The Breakfast Club Kindle World, the possibilities are infinite.”

 I'm so excited to have been chosen by Amazon for the inaugural gay romance Kindle World. I know many people are not aware what the platform is so let me explain. 

Kindle World is a way to write your own story in a world you love. Say you love the guys from the Breakfast Club. Want to find out more about Sam's old boyfriend who makes an appearance in Betting on Forever? You can write his story! Love Micah and Josh? Write their wedding and wedding night scene.

Or create your own characters and put them in Sparks, Marcus's night club.

You don't have to stick to contemporary either. Maybe you want to do a paranormal and have a whole underground shifter world in Sparks, or do a time travel of Alex and Rafe back to the Regency days. ANYTHING is possible!!

I hope everyone enjoys these fun stories and maybe even tries writing one. 

Once again, Julian Cornell is at the zenith of his career; not only have his designs helped the young men and women in the burn unit, he’s about to ink an exclusive deal with the hottest model for his new high-fashion menswear collection. Everything is perfect except his husband doesn’t understand how important it all is to him, and the model might want more than just to walk the runway in Julian’s clothing.

Nick Fletcher has never been the jealous type; he’s always been confident his place is right by his husband’s side. But now that Julian is about to re-launch his fashion line, Nick fears Julian might be sucked back into a world of beautiful people and wonder what he’s missed being married to a less-than perfect man like Nick.

Leave it up to two meddling friends who think they know best to arrange a hot date guaranteed to put the spice back in Julian and Nick’s marriage, enabling them to remember that what lies beyond the surface is a lifetime of love.

Excerpt of Memories Follow by S.C. Wynne

When four o’clock neared, I made my way to Paws For Care. I opened the door to the veterinary shop, but I wasn’t greeted by the usual cheerful woman at the counter. Instead, a cute blond guy sat in her spot looking like he’d rather be anywhere than where he was. His face was flushed, and he avoided direct eye contact. “Welcome,” he said stiffly.

“I have a four o’clock appointment with Dr. Hazelton.” Pinky squirmed in my arms and I kissed her furry little head.

The guy scanned the logbook in front of him. “Name?”


He frowned and kept his eyes down. “No, I mean your name.”

“Oh.” I laughed. “Sorry. It will be under Bernadette Franklin. I’m her son.”

He flicked his sky-blue eyes to mine and then down again. “Okay. It’s here.”

“Of course it is. Do people usually try to sneak in to see the vet?”

“Not really.”

When he turned his head toward the back, I noticed there was a long, jagged scar that ran along his jaw. My stomach tensed as I wondered how he’d gotten it. He didn’t look like the type who’d go in for plastic surgery. While he looked kind of rumpled, he seemed clean. His plaid shirtsleeves were rolled up, revealing muscled forearms, and he smelled like detergent. “You’re not the usual receptionist.”

His face flushed more, and he swallowed hard. “Patty had a hair appointment and she asked me to cover for an hour.” His thick dark lashes hid his expression. “I manage the kennel in back.”

“So you’re a jack-of-all-trades.”

“Hardly.” For the first time, he met my gaze squarely.

The punch of attraction that hit me when his light gaze rested fully on mine surprised me. He had a guarded but kind of innocent air about him that made my chest tight. I could see instantly that he’d been hurt horribly by someone. I was shocked I could read that so clearly on his handsome face, but it was there.

“You’re doing great.” I spoke firmly, wanting to reassure him for some bizarre reason.

His mouth tightened and he said, “Yeah, right.”

“I mean it.”

He shook his head and pointed toward the chairs behind me. “Take a seat. I’ll call you when the doctor is ready for you and Pinky.”

I moved to the seating area and sat where I could watch him. I knew I was acting kind of weird, but he intrigued me, and I didn’t get intrigued easily these days.

Excerpt of Finding His Place by Nic Starr

“Tell me about the new job at Sparks.”

An image of Darius immediately filled Kieran’s mind. Darius striding around the club making sure things were running smoothly, Darius observing the crowd from his favorite position near the bar, looking up and finding Darius’s blue eyes on him on more than one occasion, and the way Darius quickly looked away as if he’d been caught staring or doing something he shouldn’t be doing.

Kieran gulped his beer before speaking. “There’s a guy….”

“Oh.” Michael looked startled for a moment, but then grinned and leaned forward. “I like the sound of this already.”

“He’s my boss. Sort of.”

“Sort of?”

“He’s the manager of the club, although another guy, Brad, is the one who looks after the bar.”

“So why the long face? What’s the problem?”

“Fuck, Michael, you know how I feel about dating at work.”

“You’re dating him?”

“What? No!” Kieran sat back.

Michael grinned. “Freudian slip?”

“I just think he’s hot, that’s all.”

“I’m still not seeing the problem.”

Kieran sighed. “There’s no problem, not really. He just makes it so freaking hard to focus. Everywhere I look, he’s there. And if he’s not, I’m wondering where he is. And it doesn’t help that Brad gives me a hard time about it.”

“He knows about your little crush?”

Kieran groaned and lowered his head into his hands. “Oh shit, Michael, what am I going to do?”

Michael shrugged. “Fuck him and get him out of your system?”

Kieran lifted his head and looked at Michael. “You’re a big help.”

“What can I say? That’s what friends are for.” Michael laughed, then his eyes grew serious. “But when I asked about Sparks earlier, I was actually referring to Marcus.”

It occurred to Kieran that Marcus hadn’t even entered his mind when Michael had mentioned Sparks. What the hell?

Tony De Luca is a simple guy. He works for his uncle’s Brooklyn-based construction firm. And he knows from experience that keeping his head down and doing his job is the best way to deal with the meddlesome family members he sees daily. They think he’s quiet and maybe a little awkward but the truth is more complicated. Tony has a secret he isn’t ready or willing to share. He’s an expert at avoiding familial scrutiny. At least he was until the sexy guitar player showed up.

Remy Nelson is a small-town, free-spirited guy looking for a new life in the big city. He stays busy playing his instrument on a busy Manhattan street corner during the day and bartending at night. Remy is more interested in finding steady employment than a mate, but he can’t deny his attraction to the dreamy construction worker with soulful eyes, a kind heart, and a unique way with words. Falling for Remy wasn’t what Tony expected, but keeping him will require courage. And an end to keeping secrets

The last person Antonio expected to see sitting at the bar in Sparks was Scott, the only man he'd ever truly cared about, the only man who ever broke his heart. As memories of the painful end of their relationship come flooding back, all Antonio can do is run.

Scott’s number-one regret is believing Antonio would hurt him. He’s never forgotten the look on Antonio’s face the night they broke up. If there’s any chance he can repair the damage he’d done, he’s going to take it.

Though they care deeply for each other, Antonio and Scott will need to forgive and trust again if they're to find their way around the obstacles in their path.

Dillon Lee’s grandfather was a conspiracy theorist. Every summer he’d take Dillon on a tour of New York City while entertaining him with tales of aliens. Fifteen years later, after a phone call from a lawyer, Dillon is carrying his grandfather’s ashes from landmark to landmark, paying a sort of tribute, and trying to figure out what to do with his unexpected legacy. When someone tries to steal the ashes, a guy Dillon has barely met leaps to the rescue, saving the urn and the day.

Steilang Skovgaard is a reclusive billionaire—and not human. He’s been living in Manhattan for over twenty years, working on a long-term plan to establish a safe haven for his people. For seven years, his reports have gone unanswered, however, and he is the only surviving member of his interstellar team. The connection he forms with Dillon soon after meeting him is something he’s missed, something he craves.

But after someone keeps trying to steal the ashes, it looks as though Dillon’s grandfather was involved in more than theories—and might not have been exactly who everyone thought he was. Steilang doesn’t know how close he can get to the truth without revealing himself, and Dillon is running out of people to trust. Can these two work out what’s going on before the thieves set their sights higher?

When life brings you someone who’s supposed to be yours you’ll need to decide if you’ll give into the anticipation…

Dixon Avery’s only focus is his center and he doesn’t have time for anything else. Especially with the upcoming event to raise funds he has to keep on track without distractions. Except he can’t get the sexy bookstore owner he’s just met out of his mind. Since the man dismissed him then it won’t be a problem to forget about him since he won’t see him again. Maybe…possibly. Yet when the man shows up to his center Dixon knows there’s no way he could have ever forgotten about him. Now he has to decide what to do about the man who has captured his attention.

Reginald Williams doesn’t like anything that upsets his orderly world. Especially when it’s the man he’s been seeing pass his bookstore for years on the way to the center he owns. The man who he’s thought about all too often, admiring him from afar not just for his work at the center but also as a man who he’s attracted too. Now he has an opportunity to meet him when he comes into his bookstore looking for Reginald to volunteer. He never reacts well when being caught off guard. He’s mad at himself for the lost opportunity. Now he’s going to have to step out of his comfort zone and take a chance on not only doing a good thing to help out at the center but maybe have a chance with a man who makes him want to step out of his orderly world.

Two men not looking for things to change but life has a way of doing things that will fulfill what they never knew was their anticipation….
