Bennett and Cassie are at it again, this time looking the ultimate challenge in the eye and deciding, after everything they’ve been through, why not?
AFTER ALL THIS TIME
Some people are meant to be together, even if they find each other through tragedy. When Bennett Saville’s brother jumped off a bridge and landed on Cassandra Wallace’s car, their lives become intertwined in a way they never wanted to unravel. But so much has happened, and most of it would have been soul destroying if they hadn’t had each other. And now, after all these years, they are ready to take the final step to declare their love, but Bennett’s star is rising fast, and being a famous actor with a hit movie might undo all the trust they have built their love on.
Cassie isn’t the jealous, insecure type, but things have changed, and so has Bennett. Coming into his prime as a man and as a highly regarded actor, Cassie, ten years older than her lover, begins to worry that their foundation is shaky, and that she can’t compete with the jiggly twenty year-olds who throw themselves in Bennett’s path. What she can’t see is herself through Bennett’s eyes. If she could, she would know always and forever is all he ever wanted with his Cass.
"top 5 authors of all time"
This is a tough because I have a lot of authors whom I read, and they are all different. I have an esoteric view with reading, enjoying everything from thrillers, to detective tales, to MM Romance and the supernatural and horror. I’m not a fan of non-fiction, and I don’t like autobiographies either. I love fictional stuff and prefer to escape in stories that are fantasy and feature characters that worm their way into your heart or scare you to death.
I’m a big fan of Stephen King, especially his novels The Shining and The Stand. I love epic stories about good versus evil and all the trials and tribulations in between. There’s something about reading the story of different people’s journeys and how they deal with what life throws at them that is fascinating.
Phil Rickman is another gem of a writer. His stories of occult mysticism and female exorcists set in Herefordshire are captivating and spine tingling.
Jonathan Kellerman is another favourite and his stories of dapper, uber-intelligent psychologist Alex Delaware and his detective friend Milo grip the imagination and take you deep into the recesses of people and their truly disturbing psyches.
John Wiltshire with his ’More Heat than the Sun’ series is another incredible writer, with characters leaping off the page, being all too human and flawed. His stories are complex and gripping and often violent.
Lastly, Harper Fox, a wonderful lady whom I’ve had the privilege of lunching with, writes books that make you sigh with content even if they take a little time to get to the happy ever after. Her stories are evocative and compelling with story lines that draw you in and give you beautiful descriptions of the world she creates.
The ‘Official’ stuff
Susan writes steamy, sexy and fun contemporary stories, some suspenseful, some gritty and dark and others that hopefully make you think. She’s also Editor in Chief at Divine Magazine, an online LGBTQ e-zine, and a Charity Board trustee at The Being Me Campaign in London.
Susan attained PAN status with the Romance Writers of America with her first M/M book, Stripped Bare. She’s currently a member of The Society of Authors in the UK, and the Authors Guild in the US. She enjoys being a member of Queer Romance Ink, All Author, Book + Main Bites, and the Paranormal Romance Guild.
The ‘Unofficial’ stuff
She loves going to the theatre, live music concerts (especially if it’s her man crush Adam Lambert) walks in the countryside, a good G &T, lazing away afternoons reading a good book, and watching re-runs of Silent Witness.
Her chequered past includes being mistaken for a prostitute in the city of Johannesburg, being chased by a rhino on a dusty Kenyan road, getting kicked out of a youth club for being a ‘bad influence’ (she encourages free thinking), and having an aunt who was engaged to Cliff Richard.
