ExcerpTuesday - Pat Brown

Pat Brown is sharing a part of her latest release Lynx Woods. Please read below and I'm sure you'll have found a new author to read.

Blurb:Lynx Woods is the story of Tyler McKay, a Canadian ecological engineer, who is hired to restore a ravaged piece of land back to its natural state. During the commission of his project he meets Charlie Reid, famous wildlife artist who has been hired to produce 4 paintings commemorating that transformation. McKay is instantly drawn to the dark, enigmatic Charlie, who is half-Cherokee. But Charlie is in deep denial about his sexuality. Tyler wants to break through the barriers that Charlie has thrown up, but what cost is there when you fall in love with a man who hates himself?Excerpt:Only then did I notice the other man in the room.He stood with his back to the desk, looking out at the view through the polarized glass. His hands were held behind his back, and I noted their size and obvious roughness. This guy was no desk jockey, not with calluses like that. I couldn't see his face, only the pitch black hair that had been drawn into a ponytail and hung past his shoulder blades. He had broad shoulders and a tight ass not quite covered by a black leather bomber jacket."Ah, yes," Thurlow said. "I'm actually glad you did come up, Tyler. I'd like you meet someone. He's going to be working on the site, too, but in a different capacity."The figure by the window turned, and I found myself holding my breath. Would this stranger measure up to what I had already seen of his impressive back?I wouldn't have described the man as drop-dead gorgeous. His face was too unusual for that. It was obvious he had First Nation's blood running through his veins. His high cheekbones looked sculptured in his tight, dark face, and his eyes were two black orbs staring into mine as Thurlow introduced us."Tyler, I'd like you to meet Charlie Reid. Charlie, this is Tyler McKay, our ecological engineer."
Thank you for stopping by Pat Brown

Thanks. It was a fun book to write. And it's the first book set in Canada. A lot of the locations are places I know -- even Tyler's home was based on my sister's place. The old clunker of a Land Rover he drives was their vehicle too once.
