Get the first look at Neighborly Affection #4

The votes are in, and the newsletter subscribers have spoken.

The vote was extremely close. The first rush of votes put Becoming His Master out in front 2-to-1, but the Tuesdays with Jay fans rallied to a near upset. The winner edged out the runner-up by a single vote. Thank you to everyone who took the time to email in their vote!

The October newsletter will include a scene from Becoming His Master (Neighborly Affection #4). Since it’s a first look, it seemed only fair to make the scene a “first” for Henry and Jay, too.

Expect the guys in your inbox on Wednesday, Oct. 15.

  1. Love Henry Alice and Jay. They love each other so much and accept who they are without question.

    • Thanks, Denise! Henry, Alice, and Jay definitely love each other like crazy — so when one has a problem, the other two are eager to leap in and help fix it. 🙂
