One Good Hand has a cover *and* a release date!

Note: This blog was originally published on my MySpace blog, December 16, 2007.

I just got news that One Good Hand is being re-released from Loose-Id on Christmas Day. I'm getting all kinds of presents lately, because the story also has a brand new cover:

Nice, yeah? My very first yaoi cover, and Anne Cain did a great job with it. Ace and Spade look like they're having a helluva time.

In One Good Hand, Ace wins a man in a high-stakes poker game. That's a first for him, even though he's been gambling big—sometimes winning, sometimes losing—for years. Right now he's at the top of the food chain in a sea of sharks, and he's totally unprepared for Spade's kindness, his playful and seductive touch. I said a while back that these two are one of my favorite pairs. After starting many (and even finishing a few!) stories since OGH's first publication, I still feel that way. Ace has a perfect poker face and an attitude to match, but in seconds Spade slips in on him, intent on giving his new "master" everything he wants. It's… {happy shiver} …so much fun to watch.

If you'd like to read more about One Good Hand, you can on my website at You can also see how they meet by reading the excerpt there. Ace in his element, Spade getting a handle on Ace. They have chemistry from second one, and it never gets old for me, no matter how many times I visit them.  I guess every writer thinks that about their characters, but I'm so absentminded that I actually blank on the names of mine once in a while.  I'd never forget Ace and Spade. 

A reviewer at Coffee Time Romance said that "One Good Hand will definitely make a nice hot read for a cool fall night." I'm pretty sure it'll work just as well for those brisk winter nights as well.
