Due to some peculiar formatting on the Amazon dashboard, I miss the”free download” column when I set the screen to print large enough to read. To get everything on the laptop monitor at once shrinks the screen to 3 point type, and maybe you guys can read that, but I can’t.
This morning I scrolled over, because, might as well. So I was more than a little surprised that there had been well over a thousand downloads on Amazon US, and more than 600 at Amazon UK. Every country site had downloads, except Australia, which might be a function of time zones.
This makes me happy, because I wrote this story as a gift to readers, and wasn’t pleased at all that Amazon insisted on a price tag. For the folks who were kind enough to spend the 99 cents, email me a copy of the receipt and I will send you a little something for your troubles.
But now that the story is free in all venues in its pretty packaging, swing by your favorite ebook store (unless it’s Barnes and Annoying, because they don’t do teh free unless you go through Smashwords, and I don’t, yet) and grab a copy.

One look at the Canadian rugby star now playing on his local team turns Robin Isley into a super-fan. He’ll attend practices, cheer every game, and bleed with every tackle, but he won’t come close enough to get an autograph or say a few words.
Yves Dubois’ team runs faster, passes better, and scrums harder when Robin watches: they’ve been winning steadily. Yves has a blinding smile for Robin after practices, but never stops to talk.
Robin needs to know if Yves’ grin is only joy in the game. Finding out will be Robin’s birthday milestone, but first he needs to give himself the gift of courage.
This short story also appears in the Goodreads M/M Romance Group’s “Love Has No Boundaries” anthology volume 10.
