“Fly to me, Firebird. Fly into my arms.”
Angel and Firebird, Gabriel and Phoenix, might be my favorite characters of all. Readers seem to love them too, because they were nominated for Best Short Story (under 50 pages) in the M/M Romance Goodreads group Member’s Choice Awards. They didn’t win, but I was happy just being nominated. For reals. I’m glad that my sweet boys caught people’s hearts as they caught mine. So that’s why I thought I’d honor them today, on this Flashback Friday.
Also, I adore the cover, as in hearts exploding out of my eyes-adore.
“I love you forever, Firebird.”
Five years ago, Phoenix lost his lover Gabriel, his angel, in a horrific hate crime. All he wanted was to follow him into death and he struggled a long time trying to get his life back together. All this time later he still hasn’t been able to put the past behind him and forget about the love of his life.
On the anniversary of Gabriel’s death—and 25th birthday—Phoenix’ apartment building catches fire. Will Phoenix do the reasonable thing, or will he rise from the ashes to reunite with his beloved angel?
