This week, I thought I’d spotlight my latest novella, Beautiful Music Together. I love jazz and my love of it shows through in the characters as well as the plot. I hope you enjoy Beautiful Music Together.

Can these two opposites find the right rhythm?
Jon Kagan likes his life. He’s carefree unless he’s in the recording studio with his trumpet. Then he’s serious as hell. He plays the field like he does the notes on each track, but the single life isn’t fun any longer. He wants a lover and partner. But how can he find the man of his dreams when the only people he spends time with are the same musicians night after night? He’s convinced he won’t–until he meets Benny. Then all bets are off.
Benny Walters burns the midnight oil, too, but not in the music business. He’d rather work on houses than play tunes. Putting in a good sweat over a flooring job or painting a room makes him happy–almost as much as watching the hot guy who jogs across the neighborhood in the middle of the day. When he finally talks to Jon, sparks fly. He’d love to get to know Jon better, but confidence isn’t his strong point. Will he be able to get beyond his past and find the future he deserves?
Love happens in the strangest places, especially when it hits all the right notes.

“The acoustics in the room are great, too. Did you have professionals do the work, or did you do it yourself?”
“I got help. I knew how I wanted it to be, but getting it just right required someone who could make it happen.” Jon draped his arm around Benny’s shoulders. “Does it pass your inspection?”
“Uh-huh.” Jon gathered Benny in his arms. “I’m glad we didn’t give up back at the bistro. I was a shit and I need to redeem myself.”
“You’re doing pretty well.” He noticed the amber and dark brown flecks in Jon’s eyes. He breathed in the scent of Jon’s cologne and bit back a groan as he brushed the growing bulge in his pants against the front of Jon’s slacks.
“Damn.” Jon brushed his lips across Benny’s and bumped noses with him. “I’ve got plenty of time to touch, please and tease you.”
“Uh-huh.” He gasped for breath before Benny kissed Jon. He tasted the tangy beer on Jon’s lips. His teeth clashed with Jon’s as Jon deepened the connection. Jon swallowed his moan.
Dear God. Jon confused and aroused Benny. He liked being held and the way Jon took control when he kissed. Liked the taste of Jon. Wanted Jon’s arms around him and Jon’s body pressed against his. But confusion crept in. He knew his heart and looks. Knew his past. Would he be enough for Jon to want a second date?
Jon broke the connection again and a lazy smile curled on his lips. “I should’ve done that a long time ago.”
“You’ve kissed me before.” Benny panted to catch his breath. He hadn’t been this out of sorts in a long time.
“Those were warm-ups for now.”
