How do you maintain love in the light after a lifetime in the dark?

            40-year-old widow Armando Cruz had spent his entire life in the closet.  He’d married his best friend and confidante Marta right out of high school.   Every year, Marta sends him on a gay men’s luxury cruise. Ten days living vicariously through men who enjoy what he will never have – the freedom to be who he really is.

Marta has passed away and he’s taking the cruise to fulfill a promise made before her death…what made Marta think this time will be different?

At 31 years of age, Lyndon Douglas has concluded his poor past choices have damned him to be single forever.    His mother’s concern that Lyndon’s locked himself in an emotional prison with no escape prompted her to surprise him with an all-expenses paid gay cruise…will the change of scene free him from the shadows?

When Armando and Lyndon meet the attraction is powerful  and  a strong bond forms between the two men.  Is ten days enough time for their bond of light to curse the darkness at home?

If you always do what you’ve always done;

all you get’s what you’ve always got;  

Or not

About the Author

Miski Harris was born and raised in New York City with her younger brother and sister. She worked as a critical care nurse, served in the military, raised five amazing sons and traveled extensively. When Miski sets her mind to achieve something there is no force on earth that can stop her.

Through all the organized chaos that has often defined her life, her one constant has been a love of books. Reading has always been a mainstay for her, and she is rarely seen without her Nook on which she has reportedly downloaded over 2,000 novels. A woman of boundless imagination, she desires to give life to the characters who maintained residence in her imagination. With that in mind, she has finally put pen in hand to fulfill a lifelong desire to write books of her own. She published her first M/M romance novel; Don’t Ask Don’t Tell after a close friend and author challenged her to join the Nation Novel Writing Month initiative. At the end of that month, the first draft of her book was complete. Several edits later, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell made its debut on the Amazon and Kindle Unlimited bookshelves.

Ask anyone who knows Miski to use one word to describe her and they would say fierce. A prior military commander once defined her as a “tender warrior”. Friends, patients, and associates have always found a strong advocate in this woman who is not afraid to speak her mind.

Miski believes three things: challenge is just another word to define worlds to conquer and lines to cross; love and faith are the most powerful forces in the universe, and the only thing that hinders success is to fail to try. With that in mind, she invites you to join her in a world where love is second to nothing and life is the greatest adventure of all.

Miski resides in Prince Georges County, Maryland coexisting with two precocious cats: Freddie and Marshall.
