ColorOfYou_FBbanner_DSP (1)

Hello, everyone! I’m C.S. Poe, and thank you for joining me at Sinfully Gay Romance with the third stop of the Color of You blog tour. This is my first full length, contemporary romance novel— I usually write mystery— so I am super excited to be sharing this book with you all. Lots of sweet and sexy merry-making coming your way Christmas Day!


Character Profile

I’m happy to introduce you to the main characters at each stop of the tour, and be sure to check out the unique giveaway at the end!

Quote: ‘You’re a regular Paul Bunyan.’


I stood and brought my cello to its case. “Hey. That reminds me.” I turned to look at Alan again. “Why aren’t you in my second period composition class?”

“I had to take a study hall instead.”

Had to?”

“Yeah. My advisor said sophomores have to take either a study hall or extracurricular class, like music or art or something.”

“And you’re already in band.”

Alan nodded. “Right. He wouldn’t let me take two music classes. He doesn’t like me.”

“Why’s that?”

“Fuck if I know.”



I frowned, taking a moment to finish with my instrument. “You don’t want to be in study hall?”

“No. I do my homework at home, where I can actually focus. I suck at math, so while a study hall in theory is smart, I need help. My dad’s really good at algebra and stuff so….” Alan shrugged. “It’s just a waste of time to work here.”

“Maybe I can talk to your advisor, if you really wanted to join the class.”

Alan finished putting his clarinet together. “I dunno. I don’t want to piss him off more.”

Bowen Merlin—yes, that’s his real name—accepts a position in the quaint town of Lancaster, New Hampshire, as the high school band director. He leaves New York City for the snowy countryside of New England just in time for the holidays. With class, homework, after-school activities, and a surprise Christmas concert to plan and rehearse, Bowen is plenty busy. And since he’s never had much luck with romance, factoring in time to find Mr. Right isn’t a priority….

Until he meets the proprietor of Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, Felix Hansen. Suddenly, true love seems like a possibility for the first time in Bowen’s life. The two are a perfect match and fill the skipped beats of each other’s hearts. But as wonderful as Felix seems, he’s harboring scars that could end their budding relationship when someone in town goes to great lengths to sabotage their careers.

If Bowen is to survive the holidays, he’ll need to lean on old friends and new, convince Felix he’s worth any hardship, and prove they can come out of the catastrophe stronger if they do so together.
