BLUE SKYE
  After years apart, two childhood friends are reunited– but will Skye settle for less than love and will Drew face his greatest fear?
Skye Taylor lives the artist life in Manhattan, openly gay and proud. Drew Adams, socially conservative and from one of Woodland Village’s wealthiest families, lives within the limits of his father’s expectations. A successful architect, Drew is content with his work and his marriage. The secret he desperately hides remains safely hidden behind lies and deception, so he thought.
Best friends in high school, Skye and Drew were inseparable. Quiet and serious, Drew was drawn to the outgoing Skye and his hippy loving parents. Then graduation night changes everything. Uncontrollable urges are discovered in a night of passion, a love Drew refuses to acknowledge, a love Skye refuses to deny. Skye leaves town, leaves Drew and leaves all his feelings behind. But he never forgot Drew and that one night that changed their lives.
Years later, painful memories surface with Skye’s arrival and Drew’s carefully constructed world begins to unravel.

RYAN’S HARBOR
One-night stands and pretty women don’t seem to give Ryan that buzz that it once did. When he meets his architect, Martin Pierson, there’s a deep connection that goes beyond friendship. Can they cross the barrier into love?
The boys of Woodland Village are back. This time it’s Drew’s brother, Ryan Adams, that’s going through a crisis of doubt. He’s always been the guy who breezed through relationships, never getting serious with the women he dates. He doesn’t know why, but one-night stands and pretty women don’t seem to give him that buzz like before.
Then one night, at his brother’s barbecue, he encounters Drew’s assistant, Martin Pierson. Martin agrees to design Ryan’s new building for his gaming company – Fantasy Arts. As they spend time together in and out of the office, their working relationship grows into friendship and something more. But Martin can’t forgive himself for causing his brother’s death to allow for love. Ryan wants to be Martin’s safe harbor, a steadfast place where Martin can heal his heart. But can Martin put his trust in the notorious playboy of Woodland Village?

JOHN’S MATCH
Fantasy writer Scott Marwick just might be John’s financial savior if John can convince Scott to sign over the character rights for a new computer game. John befriends Scott for one purpose — to get him to sign — never planning on falling in love. When John shatters Scott’s trust, can Scott forgive and move on from his past mistakes?
John Kramer discovers two guys humping on the hood of his Ferrari in the parking lot of the local gay bar. When he finds one of the pair alone and in a drunken stupor, John drives him home. To his surprise, the young man’s father is his new next door neighbor, Scott Marwick. Tempers flare when Scott accuses John of getting his son inebriated and taking advantage of him. John plans to never see the man again.
Then John’s boss flips out when he finds out the jerk next door is the Scott Marwick, a temperamental, but famous fantasy writer. The elusive author could save their company from financial ruin if they can get him to sign over his characters for a computer game. Ryan insists John befriend Scott, show him around the Village and get him to agree to a meeting.
The last thing Scott needs is friends. He moved to Woodland Village to forget about the past and to write. Since his partner’s death three years ago, he hasn’t written one word, and his agent, publisher, and fans are clamoring for the final book of his award-winning series. His life is spiraling out of control and he doesn’t know if he can finish his series. He doesn’t need the complication of love and he certainly wouldn’t associate his name with a computer game.
But when John’s life begins to fall apart, Scott must decide where his loyalties lie — with John or his principles.

Let’s Play a Game!
The couples from Woodland Village are going to answer a few questions Newlywed Game style on each blog tour stop. Today we welcome John Kramer and Scott Marwick from John’s Match.

HOST: John, you’re on the hot seat today. Let’s see how well you know Scott.
John: (Giving that big smile that shows off his dimples) We haven’t been together as long as Skye and Drew, and Ryan and Martin, but we have maturity on our side.
Scott: Hey, are you saying we’re old?
John: No, just been around the block a few more times that our friends.
Scott: Yeah, you’re saying we’re old. We aren’t even forty yet.

HOST: Ah, guys, let’s focus. You both are very attractive and don’t look a day over thirty-five.
Scott: (Mumbling) Gee, thanks.

HOST: Back to the question. John, who would your partner say is the “better catch” out of you two?
John: Scott would say I am. He’s always muttering how can I stand him when he’s in one of his ‘moods’.
Scott: Yeah. (He holds up his card). He’s right.

HOST: John, what do you mean by ‘one of his moods’?
Scott: (Butts in) I have a short fuse and well, John’s been helping me with controlling my temper. Nothing physical, but I snap at the person and—
John: He retreats. You know, the ‘silent treatment’. Does this with his writing, too. Nothing exists outside of his fictional world. I practically have to force feed him. Remind him that he has another life. You know. Totally absorbed…
Scott: And I don’t want to be that person anymore. John lets me know when I’m being a shit. (Scott gently squeezes John’s arm). He’s my sounding board. My reality when I retreat.
John: Everyone gets on my case for being a caregiver, but I like taking care of others. Scott reminds me that sometimes my friends need to take care of me. Scott does that…takes care of my needs. Gives the best massages when I’m stressed out.
Scott: (Clearing his throat) Ah, no details, okay.

HOST: (Laughing) I see. Those massages lead to other things. I’d say sex is a great stress reliever. Okay, well, now that I’m hot and bothered…at tomorrow’s tour stop we will go back to couple number one. Drew and Skye. We’ll see you there!
