The Crush by Susan X Meagher
395 pages
Aldo Bagnolesi finally has what he's long wanted. Control of the family winery in Tuscany. The only little detail is that someone has to manage the place for a few years. He's far too involved in his company to leave on such short notice, but his daughter…

Despite her worries, Nicola agrees to step up to the plate, even though her interest in Italy and wine is sorely lacking. Her father will relieve her in two years. How bad could two years in one the prettiest places on earth be?

The transition is tough and she's achingly lonely. Nic knows nothing about running a winery and can't talk to the workers or the wine maker. She's desperate for connection; for any semblance of her former busy social life. The closest gay bar is in Florence. She heads out—determined to at least talk to someone she has one thing in common with. To her delight, she finds not just a willing lesbian, but a sexy one—who seems equally interested in her.

It's crazy to put so much importance on a chance meeting. But sometimes, you have to throw your doubts to the winds and see what the universe has in store for you.

Nurture: Book 14 of the I Found My Heart in San Francisco series by Susan X Meagher
275 pages

It's been just three short months since Jamie and Ryan's traumatic Christmas. They've worked through a lot, but Ryan's not progressing nearly as quickly as she wishes. She craves time alone with Jamie and stability in every other area. But she's had little of either. Sports, travel, and a massive independent study have stretched her to the breaking point. Jamie would do anything to help, but she's learning it's tough to help someone who refuses to acknowledge weakness.

After Mia's disastrous fight with her parents, she can't stand the thought of being separated from Jordan. Without question, it would be crazy to drop out of school just two months short of graduation. But Mia's an inventive thinker, and she has a few creative ideas to game the system.

Things aren't going well for Jim Evans, either. Being a senator has its perks, but his stance on gay marriage is causing a rift with Jamie as well as Kayla. At a loss, he turns to his father for advice on how to handle the women in his life. Charles is always willing to help, but Jim doesn't have a great track record when it comes to changing his behavior.

Love, care and understanding can help get past many of the hurdles life puts in our way. All of us need to be nurtured to thrive. But sometimes it's hard to open up and accept the love that's right in front of us.

Generally speaking, though, if you like series, I have three books in the "Strange Bedfellows" series ("Strange Bedfellows," "Three's a Crowd," and "Victoria's Very Awkward Love Story"). "Third" may be good if you like historical fic and/or sci-fi. It's also a Lammy and GCLS finalist--if you put stock into awards. "The Odd Couple," "Waiting" and "Strange Bedfellows" also won/finaled for GCLS or Rainbow Awards.

Announcement from Geonn Cannon
My latest novel, Silence Out Loud is now available! I really loved Cheryl, and I hated that I wasn't able to use her as thoroughly as I wanted to in Squire's Isle. I kept slipping her into stories, but I wanted to show the aftermath of the novel. Which was kind of hard since only a handful of people actually had a chance to actually read it. Well, now that has changed! This novel is kind of a throwback for me. Remember when I wrote sweet romances about ordinary women who struggled with real-life stuff? No werewolves, no demons, just relationships. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Ariadne or Riley. Just that this is where I got my start, and it's nice to look back. And considering how this was set up, following a woman through a very important time in her life, I think it deserves some credit for how Radiation Canary went down. The prototype, as it were.

So I hope you enjoy it! Look forward to seeing more of Cheryl in future Squire's Isle stories!


Cheryl Paxton grew up knowing the wonders of a good book, how to get lost in a brand-new world and stepping into the life of a stranger. But though she can live a thousand different lives in the pages of her books, she's never known the sound of her own mother's voice or heard raindrops falling on a roof. Cheryl was born deaf.
Born to a single mother in a small southern town, Cheryl eventually leaves home and travels across the country to college. On her own for the first time, Cheryl is confronted by new friends and, with them, a new myriad of reactions to her deafness. When she meets the woman who will become her first love and begins exploring feelings she's only read about, she quickly learns all about the wonder and pain that can come from loving someone.
Now available in ebook format from Amazon, through my website's store ( ) or in a variety of non-Kindle formats at Smashwords.
