Hearts of Parkerburg book 4
Lee Brazil and Havan Fellows
Appleton Publishing Avenue March 1st 2017
MM romance, contemporary, series
As a misguided youth, Rosy loved being that kid in Parkerburg—you know the one that everybody swears will end up in jail or comatose—until one summer day on the back roads of town when two lives came to a screeching halt.
Thirteen years later, Rosy owns the local pub on Maple Street and makes a good show of how he's recovered from tragedy. He even convinces himself…until he meets the new man in town and realizes just how okay he isn't. With the demons of his fatal past still stalking him, Rosy has no idea how to switch from simply existing to actually living.
Angus “Jet” Manheim—famous for his smooth, sexy voice and notorious for his hard partying ways—sped through most of his adult life on stage and in the recording studio. Sober and retired to the quaint New England town of Parkerburg, Jet’s ready to slow his soundtrack…until his compelling neighbor—a grumbling, muscular mountain of a man with an odd name—ups the tempo.
Frequently absentminded, Jet finds Rosy an easy object of focus, a solid center around which Jet hopes to build a future. But retirement isn’t easy. The entertainment industry doesn’t stop knocking just because you hang a do not disturb sign.
When Rosy’s and Jet’s pasts try to harmonize with their present, they might have to decide whether the chorus is worth repeating.
The Hearts of Parkerburg stories can be read as standalones, each with a HEA…but trust me, you'll want to read about all the sweet happenings in this quaint little town.

If you like a sweet, sexy, heartfelt romance you can always count on Lee Brazil and Havan Fellows. Their town Parkerburg boasts lots of quirky, sexy characters to do just that. A Spark to The Heart is book 4 in the series, you could probably read this as a standalone, but I think if you read it in order you know the other characters better and won't get confused.
Rosey is the crotchety bar owner in town. Beneath his rough exterior, he is a good man taking in young people with problems and giving them jobs when he can. Rosey even helped Bas, a man that came causing trouble an apartment above the bar real cheap.
Jet is a newcomer to town opening a new shop across the street. The moment Jet and Rosey meet the attraction is apparent. But just as things get going well for these two Jets identity makes Rosey turn away.
Spark to the Heart is an excellent story. There are so many characters it took me a couple of chapters to recall who was who and with whom. After Rosey and Jet get together the story picked up pace. I have to say Rosey and Jet are my favorite characters in this series so far. I love older men with lots of history and experience. I like that it shows that people in their 40's and 50 still have feelings and desire and probably more skeletons in their closets than youth. There are a few sad moments especially with Rosey's story and lots of hot man-sex
If you are looking for a good contemporary romance with a great storyline and some hot sex, I recommend this one!
Somewhere in a small town in up-state New York are a librarian and a second grade teacher to whom I owe my life. That might be a touch dramatic, but it’s nevertheless one hundred percent true.
Because they taught me the joy of reading, of escaping into worlds crafted of words.
Have you ever been nine years old and sure of nothing so much as that you don’t belong? Looked at the world from behind glasses, and wondered why you don’t fit?
Someone hands you a book, and then you turn the page and see… There you are, running from Injun Joe in a dark graveyard; there you are fencing with Athos; there you are…beneath the deep blue sea- marveling at exotic creatures with Captain Nemo.
I found myself between the pages of books, and that is why I write now. It’s why I taught English and literature for so many years, and it’s why my house contains more pounds of books than furniture.
If I’d had my way, I’d have been a fencer…or a starship captain, or a lawyer, or a detective solving crimes. But instead, I am a writer, and I’ve come to realize that’s the best thing in the world to be, because as a writer, I can be all those things and more.
If I hadn’t learned to value the stories between the pages, who knows what would have happened? Certainly not college…teaching…or writing.
I annoy, love, respect, scare, seduce, hurt, anger, infatuate, frustrate, flatter, envy, amuse and tolerate everyone. I just do it better in writing thanks to a little thing called…edits.
Okay no, seriously…I'm a simpleminded person who enjoys the escape from real life through a book. I write with the group Story Orgy and hope to continue doing so for a long time. I also am privileged to be with the Pulp Friction writers, creating intermingling books in a world all our own.
Just like every other red-blooded human—I get a little bouncy when I get mail (any kind too…email, comments, private messages…you wanna do it, do it with me *winks*). So feel free to drop me a line—whether it's on my blog, twitter, PInterest, or you track me down on FaceBook or Google +…it's easy to catch someone who wants to be caught.
