He's in love with two men. Will he make his deepest fantasy a beddable reality?

Fleeing from Chicago and his memories of a brutal attack, Santiago Mendoza feels ready to face life again. But even though he's in a committed relationship with his new boyfriend, he can't stop thinking about his ex. And he secretly fantasizes that his sizzling duo could become a red-hot love affair for three.

Muscled firefighter Jonas Sandbauck bides his time, waiting for the right moment to propose to the deliciously sensitive Santiago. But when his emotionally damaged beau welcomes advances from his former partner, he fears he might lose the only man to set his heart ablaze.

Successful businessman Myles Greyson will never stop missing the gorgeous lover he let walk out of his life. Though when he decides to make his move before it's too late, his reappearance in Santiago's space causes a rift with the foxy Jonas.

As fiery emotions threaten to burn up his still-fragile world, Santiago must make a choice before he loses both men. But when Jonas and Myles finally end up alone together, the tension ignites sparks too hot to ignore.

Will Santiago destroy his chance at happily-ever-after, or can he convince Jonas and Myles that this is a three-way-love of a lifetime?

Where There's Smoke is a smoldering standalone gay romance. If you like tantalizing threesomes, hot-and-heavy angst, and steamy sex, then you'll adore BLMorticia's seductive M/M/M story.

“Santiago? Santi?”

Hearing the sound of his voice brought a big smile to my face. I placed the knife and vegetables on the counter before making my way to the foyer.

There was my hunk of man, removing his boots, leaving them at the door as I commanded. I refused to have that filth he’d been trudging in on the hardwood floors.

Leaning against the paneling, I surveyed him. Six five, hunk of muscle, big everywhere, including the places it mattered most. An all-American boy, with crystal clear blue eyes that held me in place.

Jonas Sandbauck was a former Army man, who’d served in Afghanistan. When he returned in 2013, he stayed home and enlisted as a reserve. Because of that, there’s always the fear they’ll call him to go back. He’d taught me to not get too worked up about it. Regardless, I’d always have that in the back of my mind.


When his blue eyes met mine, he flashed me a white smile. “Hey there, Santi. What’cha been up to all day?”

“Oh, nothing much. We’ve got about ten minutes before I pull dinner of the grill,” I said.

“Great, because I’m starved.” Jonas took my hand, yanking me into him. We hugged and I wrapped both arms around his shoulders. “I had lunch, but it wasn’t filling enough.”

“Oh I know,” I chuckled.  “So, I was thinking…” I nibbled on my bottom lip because bringing up my last boyfriend was always a sore spot for Jonas. “Perhaps we could have Myles over sometime soon. He hates leaving the city, but he said he would so we could spend time with the baby. I really miss Macy.”

Jonas sighed and pressed his lips to my head. “Uh, sure. I guess that would be great. From the pictures you’ve shown me, she’s adorable.”

“And when he comes, no growling, okay?”

Jonas bowed his head in agreement. “Yes, sir.”

“Promise?” I asked him, cocking my eyebrow.

“Yeah. As long as he doesn’t start anything with me. I know how to be civil.”

“But you have a temper.”

“Yeah, but I can be nice. Just as long as he doesn’t stay too long or make a habit out of it, we’ll be fine.”

Hearing that statement, I smiled. “Good. I haven’t seen her since she was born. I’m really excited to play with her.”

“I’m glad for that, but I told you, we could have a little bundle of our own,” he said lifting me off my feet.

“I know, but he or she wouldn’t be Macy.” I kissed his lips quick and wrangled myself out of his arms. “Let me go check on dinner. Why don’t you go wash up, okay?”

“All right.” Jonas turned on his heel and left the kitchen.

Watching him walk away, I knew the fact I wanted Macy in my life niggled at him. Before I was attacked, I was all set to raise her with my ex-boyfriend, Myles. Then the horror I’d experienced happened and I couldn’t stay in Chicago. Myles had done pretty much everything to make me stay, but I couldn’t do it for him or anyone.

Bottom line, the big city held too many memories for me. Ones, I wasn’t ready to face. Perhaps someday, but for now I had everything I needed in this small town.
