To save his bookstore from closing, Mark Werner realizes it’s going to take a miracle—like getting reclusive, best-selling author Shepherd Knight to agree to appear for a signing.

After their disastrous last encounter, Mark doesn’t hold up much hope Shepherd will agree. Shepherd’s never made a single public appearance. In fact, Mark wouldn’t even know what he looks like had he not accidentally discovered the sexy stranger he’d been flirting with for months, aka “Tall-Dark-and-Grumpy,” was also his fanboy obsession.

But desperate times call for desperate measures. If Mark can convince Shepherd, it’ll be a major coup in the book world and might just save Bookmarked from sinking. Too bad Shepherd won’t reply to his e-mails. Yet Mark didn’t earn the reputation of having a “sunshine-and-rainbow-fart” personality for nothing. He’ll do whatever it takes to get his man… and hopefully not make a fool of himself in the process.

Welcome to the Heartsville gayborhood!!!

Full of pretty, sexy, naughty, smart and funny boys!


I’m very excited about this new project . Heartsville is an LGBT friendly town and each book of this series features a different couple of its residents.

This is the story of Mark, owner of Bookmarked the local bookstore, and Shepherd, a local bestselling author with anxiety issues.

Their last encounter was disastrous. Mark went on full fanboy mode when he realised who the sexy stranger in his bookstore was, and Shepherd went on full asshole mode.

But Mark needs to save his bookstore from sinking and having Shepherd participating in some of the author events he’s planning, would help a lot.

Eventually, Shepherd’s attitude changes and his previous behaviour starts making sense.

This story has all the things that we love. Books, men and hot lovemaking. And dirty talk. Can it get any better than this? Yes it can! Because…hot man lovemaking IN A BOOKSTORE! All in one!

This is an angst- free, feel good story and Piper Vaughn’s writing never dissapoints. Great start to a promising series. Can’t wait to read the next.

Mother, wife, teacher and READER. I read MM almost exclusively. My kindle is my best friend and the most important thing in my life after my son. My poor husband…

I read MM romance almost exclusively. As a reader I don’t have any hard limits except incest. I like Contemporary and Historicals and I rarely read Paranormal unless recommended…
