Friday Free-For-All with Meg Amor

This past Wednesday, our friend, Meg Amor, came by the blog to talk all about speaking like a Kiwi.  :)   She also told us about coming books in her The Hawaiians series, the first of which, Hawaiian Lei is the prize in this edition of Friday Free-For-All.  To be entered to win a digital copy of Hawaiian Lei, just leave a comment to this post!

 
Hawaiian Lei


Beau Toyama, biplane pilot and flight instructor on the Big Island of Hawai’i has only been out for a year. His last relationship with a man was a disaster. When he meets Matt Quintal, who’s visiting his sister, he’s stunned by the instant attraction to him. But Beau’s afraid to ask for what he needs in a relationship; his anger frightens him. The “mixed plate” Hawaiian/Japanese/Tahitian man works on being Zen calm but Matt brings all his emotions to the surface. It uncovers a devastating secret from his childhood and deep shame that needs healing.

Matt Quintal, New Zealand painter has been living the wild gay life in LA. After one more night of soulless mechanical sex where his body is engaged but his emotions aren’t—he knows he needs a change. His sister wants him to come to Hawai’i for a visit; another big rock in the middle of the Pacific doesn’t seem like a solution but he has to do something. When he flies with Beau in his biplane, he feels a strong pull toward both man and plane that he can neither explain nor deny.

Matt’s a New Zealander, they’re encouraged to be tough, rugged and durable. He is, but he's emotionally a wreck, afraid to show his emotions, so he’s surprised when Beau encourages him to be all of himself. Has he finally found the freedom to be the man he wants to be? The heat between the two men is like watching Pele let her hair down, releasing her hot, molten lava. Will the gorgeous Hawaiian with his long silky black hair and soulful brown eyes finally convince the gypsy nature in Matt to put down roots in another island culture?

  2. I visited Australia and had a chance to go to New Zealand but went to the Great Barrier Reef instead. One of those decisions I will always regret. I would love to win this book to recapture what I missed, even if it's just the Kiwi slang!

    1. Aloha Susan :-)

      I hope you get to visit NZ one day soon. It is beautiful. I have to say though - the Great Barrier Reef is too and one of those unique things in the world to see. :-). This book has the slang we use. :-). And the next book they visit NZ. So hopefully that'll whet or satisfy your appetite a wee bit. :-).

      Good luck with the drawer.

      Aloha Meg. :-).
