Cover Reveal, Exclusive Excerpt, & Giveaway – Charlie’s Hero by Nic Starr


Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.

But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him, puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.

It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that he doesn’t need his parents to be part of a family.

“You feel it too,” Charlie whispered, part question, part statement.

“Uh-huh,” Josh replied after a brief pause. He seemed incapable of further speech, but Charlie didn’t need to hear the words to know Josh felt the same. His slow smile conveyed his feelings.

“Good,” Charlie said as his heartbeat returned to normal. He hadn’t been aware he was waiting for Josh’s confirmation, but when it came, it released the tension that’d been twisted up with his desire. “I wanted to… I…. God, I feel like I’m giving a speech, but there’s more I need to say.”

Josh laughed at Charlie’s admission. “There’s stuff I want to say too.”
