Catching up with Isaac and David at the holidays—and more on the horizon

Thanks so much to the Sinfully gang for welcoming me to the blog today to talk about A Very English Christmas, the short story sequel to my gay Amish romance trilogy.

The series started with A Forbidden Rumspringa, which was initially conceived as a novella, and then a single novel, and then the trilogy. When I was asked to take part in the Wish Come True holiday charity collection last year, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to revisit Isaac and David, and now I’m bringing you their Christmas story as a standalone.

Taking place about six months after the end of the third book in the trilogy, this holiday tale follows Isaac and David as they experience their first Christmas as a couple and in the outside, modern world. I hope you enjoy this peek into their happily ever after—which will continue in 2017 with a fourth book.

Yep, Isaac and David have been politely tapping me on the shoulder for the past year, wondering when I’m going to write more about their journey of love and discovery. I can tell you that the fourth book (no title yet), will take place several years down the road as Isaac graduates university. Of course our boys will face some challenges (although not to their relationship, which is rock solid), with their Amish past and estrangement from that community playing a role as they explore what it is to create your own family and happiness with the people who accept you…

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this Christmas story, and thank you so much to everyone who has supported these books so wholeheartedly. If you’re new to Isaac and David, you can win a copy of the first book to get you started on their journey. Happy holidays!

Title: A Forbidden Rumspringa (#1)

::: MARK’S REVIEW :::

> BUY ON AMAZON <

When two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?

In a world where every detail of life—down to the width of a hat brim—is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he’ll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else—something he can’t name.

Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can’t put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.

Now that they’ve found each other, are they willing to lose it all?

Note: Contains explicit sexual situations and graphic language. This is not an inspirational/Christian romance.

Title: A Clean Break (#2)

::: MARK’S REVIEW :::

> BUY ON AMAZON <

They've escaped to the outside world--but can they really be free?

David and Isaac have found happiness in each other's arms. In faraway San Francisco, Isaac's brother Aaron helps them explore confusing "English" life and move beyond the looming shadow of their Amish roots. For the first time, David and Isaac can be openly gay, yet they struggle to reconcile their sexuality with their faith. At least they don't have to hide their relationship, which should make everything easier. Right?

But while Isaac thrives at school and makes new friends, David wrestles to come to terms with the reality of the outside world. Haunted by guilt at leaving his mother and sisters behind in Zebulon, he's overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the city as he works to get his carpentry business off the ground.
While David and Isaac finally sleep side by side each night, fear and insecurity could drive them miles apart.

Note: This is the second chapter in a trilogy of forbidden Amish love. This book features explicit sex and is not an inspirational/Christian novel.

Title: A Way Home (#3)

::: MARK’S REVIEW :::

> BUY ON AMAZON <

 Will returning to their Amish roots renew their faith in each other?

Isaac and David never thought they'd go back to the Amish world. But when Isaac’s younger brother is stricken with cancer, they don’t hesitate to return. Their relationship is on the rocks after insecurity and fear drove a wedge between them in San Francisco, and David is determined to make things right. Yet if they thought navigating “English” life was confusing, being back in Zebulon is even more complicated.

Their families are desperate to bring them back into the fold, and pressure from the community builds. Isaac and David yearn for a future together, but each day it becomes harder to hide the truth about who they really are. They're caught between two worlds, and if they’re not careful it could tear them further apart.

Can Isaac and David make their way back to each other—and find a place to call home?
