Six Sentence Sunday: Fall Down the Mountain

From Fall Down the Mountain–Mark McAvoy, the ski patrol, is awake in the night when he’d really rather not be.

The building was quiet at two a.m., the hall lights almost too bright as I padded the length of the third floor to the central stairs; one flight down and then about halfway across the other wing of the building brought me to their door. Maybe this time I wouldn’t get punched.

Because I had to knock on that door. I needed to see for myself that the men who lived on the other side were alive and well, and then I might be able to sleep again. If not tonight, then some other night, but the need to see them both, to touch them and feel the warmth of life, pulled my hand up to the wood, and I knocked. Three soft raps on the door, and only then did I realize I had no idea what to say, how to explain being on their doorstep in the wee hours.

Find the rest at at Torquere, Amazon, or ARe.

Free Read — Dinnertime

Fall Down the Mountain

No longer willing to be a vacation plaything, ski patrol Mark McAvoy longs for stability and love. But caught up in a grand jury investigation and suspended from his job, can Mark offer injured chef Allan Tengerdie more than help in the kitchen?

This little tidbit is a bit of follow-up to the novel, and was first seen on the Torquere social list, but it was too much fun to let slip into the ether.


“Mmm, seduction food.” Mark inhaled deeply over Allan’s shoulder, his face bathed in the steam from the pot. Chunks of chicken and vegetables released a savory fragrance as Allan stirred sour cream into the pungent orange sauce. “You must want the extra-special lovin’ tonight.” He slipped his arms around the chef’s middle and nuzzled his neck.

“Always.” Allan turned and kissed Mark’s forehead. “Toss the salad while I drain the noodles, okay?”

Mark feigned shock. “Now? In the kitchen? Before we eat?”

“With the tongs, you meshuggener.” Allan thumped the top of Mark’s head gently with the serving implement.

Mark laughed deep in his throat and didn’t let go. “Sounds kinky.”

“The green stuff.” Allan twisted in Mark’s embrace and put his arms over his lover’s shoulders. “In the bowl. Part of dinner.” He pulled Mark down enough to meet those wide, sensuous lips with his own.

“Damn, when you offered EF or FF, and I said ‘Both,’ I thought this was what you meant.” Warm hazel eyes danced with the joke.

“You can’t do both.” Allan slipped his tongue into Mark’s mouth, stroking softly, but Mark pulled back.

Reaching into the pot, Mark dipped his finger into the sauce, then drew a paprika-flavored line over Allan’s mouth. Slowly he cleaned it off, with nibbles and licks, making Allan pull closer against his lover’s body — tall, fit, and still too thin, though that was improving with every good meal. Again Mark dipped into the sauce and painted Allan’s lips.

“Are you absolutely sure?”

We Have a Winner!

The contest for a free copy of “Fall Down the Mountain,” hosted by Chris at Stumbling Over Chaos, has closed, and we have a winner!

Congrats, Otter, and may you enjoy your prize.

About that party — I’ve been thinking how to do it, and maybe the best way would be an LJ day, either on mine or the Torquere Social. That way, all the comments thread and no moderation would be needed. I’ll post the addy for ease of finding, and darn, I’d supply the chips and the beer if I could.

Great Review for “Fall Down”

Fall Down the Mountain got its first review today, and it’s great! Jenre reviewed at Jessewave’s, and I just saw it — Whoot!

4.5 of 5!  Here’s an excerpt:

Overall, I greatly enjoyed this book. I got a peek at how Jake and Kurt were doing, but more importantly, I got to see Mark have his happy ending – something I’ve wanted to read for months. If you liked the previous Mountain books then this one is a must. For those new to the series, you could read this as a stand-a-lone, as all the references to the previous book are explained in this book, but you would get more out of reading this book if you read Snow on the Mountain first. In fact if you haven’t read the series, then you should because they’re a fantastic set of books.

Thanks, Jenre! Read the rest of the a href=”″>review here or better yet, read the book here.
