Life has a way of turning your world upside down. Just when you think you’re away from the eye of the storm you find you were never really the central target but instead, the aftermath of the physical and emotional destruction.

Jordan’s life was full of losses. He lost his friend EJ when he disappeared during a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell debacle. He lost his livelihood after career ending injuries during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He lost his partner Michael to a robbery gone wrong, and while traveling to receive intense treatment of his PTSD, he lost his leg. He’s angry and depressed. What else could life take from him?

Ron has led a solitary life in the Rocky Mountain foothills of Colorado. He trains service dogs to meet the needs of clients suffering extreme anxiety driven illnesses. For this reason, he has a stellar reputation and relationship with the military serving war torn veterans. He knows there is something missing and he’s sure it’s not love because, well, been there, done that…

As life brings Ron and Jordan together, will they each have what the other needs to weather the storms of life? Or, will each man continue to wander through the detritus of fate, nothing more than collateral damage.

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.
