Banner

Ever wish you could be in two places at once? So did Brian Kinney. What with the demands from his new boss, the 'needs' of his "family" and his desire to spend time in his Sunshine, in the snowy vistas of Vermont, the Stud was about to lose it. Enter Doc Alex with an intriguing proposistion.

But beware!  There is a reason the age old adage 'be careful what you wish for' is so cliched.

Summary:

When Brian wins big on the lottery he and Michael take off for 2 years. Upon their return, Debs is delighted, not only are her boys back but they are finally a couple...but only according to Michael. What he thought has been a dream adventure has been a litany of moaning, complaining and bitching for Brian, so bad did it get that he cut the trip short! Now he's back and needs something to do...Ted and Emmett find him something to do during the day and his passion for photography finds him something do at night...oh and there's the little matter of Lindsay...she wants a baby and wants Brian to play daddy, or should that be Daddy Warbucks, but does Mel want to play mommy still?

Huge thanks and love as ever to my betas...you babes rock!

Summary:

Formerly titled Don't Know Why But I Do: Smoke and Mirrors

Two years ago advertising guru and sometime artist Brian Kinney was shot and nearly killed but an angel called Justin saved his life. Neither of them has forgotten the other. When they are brought back together by Liberty Avenue's Mistress of Love, Marilyn and his close friend Emmett sparks fly once again, much to the delight of The Avenue, as well as Justin's friends Chris and Daphne.

But questions still haunt The Avenue, who tried to kill Brian? Why did they try and do it? Why is Michael's childhood best friend Mercy back in town? What secret is she hiding?

This is a story of mysteries and revenge, but most of all a story of love.

Summary:

 

 

Sequel to "Filled Silence"

Set in the Post-Stockwell Era, Brian and Justin makes some decisions that will redefine their definition of the word 'relationship'. Although inspired by the concepts within "The Experiment" by Wren and "The Dare" by Edom, it's my take on what should have happened in the series. ENJOY!!! 

To the Wonderful and Talented Lorie Austin, Thanks for being my beta, but most of all, my friend. I couldn't do what I do without you. HUGS!
