It is a standalone story but
also part of a group of books.
Would law school do what
a drug lord’s bullet could not – hand Colin Campbell the bitter defeat he never believed he’d
have to face? Or would the man he loved
find a way to draw him back from the abyss?
Colin Campbell had been a champion all his life. Nothing
had ever beaten him, not even a drug lord’s bullet. He approached law school the same way
he approached everything in life, with cocky confidence fizzing through his veins like ginger
ale. He had it all. He had the looks, the brains, the experience, the know-how and he also
had the love of his life at his side. He couldn’t be defeated… he thought.
But he hadn’t counted on the gravitas of law school, the
reading, the preparation, the cases, the competition, the Socratic Method, the concepts, the
grading curve, the expectations, the finals, memos, study groups, outlines… all of it piled
and heaped upon those preparing for a career as an attorney until it wasn’t surprising that
some of them simply imploded under the weight of it all.
Suddenly Colin was spinning out of control, scrambling to
keep up, rarely ever seeing Joshua. His grades slumped as he tried desperately to balance
the opposing forces in his life, but his only solution was stretching himself thinner and
thinner, until he feared he’d be torn in two. Joshua pleaded with him to slow down, but
Colin refused to lighten his load and the path before them grew darker and darker.
They’d been through so much and survived. Would law
school do what a drug lord’s bullet could not – hand Colin Campbell the bitter defeat he
never believed he’d have to face?
Or would the man he loved find a way to draw him back
from the abyss?
About the Author
My name is Janice Jarrell. I
am a retired grandmother who lives in Seattle, WA. I have two children and three
grandsons. I’ve been writing gay romance since I was twelve years old, only back then it
wasn’t called ‘gay romance’. In fact, it had no name at all. It was the fifty’s, and
it was worth your life to admit to being gay, let alone confess to being a girl who constantly
fantasized about relationships between gay men. Hell, I didn’t even know what a
homosexual was. I lived on a farm out in the sticks in a tiny Michigan village and I’d
never, to my knowledge, even heard the word. I just knew I loved the thought of boy on boy
romance. I just knew that there was something hot going on between Tom
Corbett and his Space Cadets and all those guys on ‘Combat’.
I wrote slash fanfiction for 30
years, writing over 337 stories, some as short as 100 words (a drabble) some as long as a
series which was over 119,012 words. I enjoy writing my stories. I enjoyed the feedback I
received from my readers. It was a creative release I’d been searching for my entire life and I
blessed the Internet for leading me to this artistic oasis for my spirit.
Love’s Magic was
my very first step into writing my own characters. I will always be grateful
the slash fanfiction community for nurturing the budding author until she was ready to
blossom into a fully realized novelist. It’s been an amazing thing to watch the gay
community’s growth over these past twenty years. My own journey has echoed theirs in
many ways, and I’m grateful to all those gay activists who fought to give the gay community
the rights and privileges they always
My second contemporary gay
romance novel, Love’s Trials followed Colin and Joshua on their journey as men and as a
couple. The readers who fell in love with them in Love’s Magic were thrilled to see their
romance continue to grow and blossom, but were forced to watch our beloved boys go
through some pretty traumatic trials in this book, trials which nearly shattered their
relationship. But their love proved stronger than any troubles in the end and they now move
forward into the happiness they know they deserve.
In Love’s Glory, Colin and
Joshua bask in the happiness that eluded them in Love’s Trials. If you’re looking for a book
filled with anger, fear, and anxiety… look elsewhere. Love’s Glory is about just that… the
glory of love and the continued growth of these two extraordinary men and the amazing
friends who are a large part of their lives.
I’m also grateful to the gay
romance community, readers, authors, publishers and promoters, who are making these, my
retirement years, the most creative ones of my life. When I’m not writing, I’m traveling,
walking, hiking, knitting, crocheting, and weaving, and enjoying my life here in the heart of
the Pacific Northwest.
