A more than worthy sequel to "Shelton in love".

Shelton and Nevil have been together for 6 months. Shelton wants to give Nevil some important gift, but they have to be in Stewart's birthday party that evening, so he has to wait until they get home. In the party, Shelton feels a bit insecure when he sees Percy, Nevil's ex, is there. The rest of the book is about how Nevil tries to convince Shelton that he is the one he wants.

This is such a nice and sweet short story. It has all the ingredients fo

I got the honor of reading the previous story, Shelton in Love and was happy to revisit these characters. I fell in love with Shelton in the first book and had to know what would happen next for the slightly timid man. Shelton, though a little timid is a very complex man. He’s a joy to read more about. I liked reading what was going on in his

This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there.

A lot has been placed into this sequel to Shelton in Love. While it is still sweet, it also has a serious tone to it, which some readers might find was missing in the first story.

Shelton is still very in love with Nevil, but this time we also see just how much Nevil cares back. While trying to give Nevil a gift, Shelton stumbles on a lot of obstacles, some of which make him question his relationship and bring

A lovely sweet follow on to Shelton in Love. It was lovely to see this sweet couple again. I wish these stories could be longer, with a little more attention to the little details. I did have a slightly confusing moment regarding the car? (view spoiler) Maybe I'm ...more

Shelton & Nevil have now been together for six months and the story picks up with Shelton holding onto a gift he wishes to give his lover.
This is another lovely short story from Dianne Hartsock, and it was great to pick up with these two characters and see where their relationship is heading. There are some issues with jealousy, insecurity and an ex of Nevil's turning up at the party Nevil and Shelton attend, but it was great to see the growth in their relationship and especially to see Shel

The continuation of Shelton and Nevil's love story is fraught with peril, namely in the form of an ex and jealousy.

Whoever said you couldn't tell a complete story in a short amount of space, has never read this book. There's a full story here.

I liked this a lot. The guys come through clearly with their characters, there's internal and external strife and obstacles, and sizzling hot sex. I recommend this, and can't wait for the next installment in the series :)

3.5 stars. Shelton and Nevil have been together for six months now. Shelton is still insecure at times wondering why Nevil would choose him. But choose him he does. Some anxious moments but a sweet read!

Couldn't get into it. Now I see from some of the reviews that it's a sequel. Perhaps that's my problem.

After growing up in California and spending the first ten years of marriage in Colorado, I now live in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon with my incredibly patient husband, who puts up with the endless hours I spend hunched over the keyboard letting my characters play.
I have to say, Oregon’s raindrops are the perfect setting in which to write. There’s something about being cooped up in th
