I finished, I finished! Did I say I FINISHED?!

I've finished the book I've been working on for months. YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!

Do you think I might be happy? *grin* Getting closer and closer to the end has been driving me craaazy and now it's over.

It's the weirdest feeling actually. I always finish up feeling so close to my characters that I can hardly bear to give them up. I simply loved Griff and Fort. What beautiful men. *sigh* So sexy, so masculine, they made me breathless on a regular basis. It's hard to type when your fingers are all shaky, but I managed. For you, dears. *smile*

So now it's off to my wonderful editor. Hope to have a release date soon. Ohboy,ohboy,ohboy... Watch for excerpts in my newsletter, my website and on MySpace. Here's the gist of it.

Oh, and Mirry, Jan and Fledge from Tailspin make a number of cameo appearances. I loved catching up with them!

Strongman
Denise Rossetti
Book 3 in the Phoenix Rising series.

A hard-bitten mercenary who’s had a gutful of mud and blood and death, Fortitude McLaren joins the Ten Nations Fair as a roustabout. Tough, cold and competent, he’s shocked and angered by the depth of his hunger for Griff, a circus tumbler and acrobat. Brought up in the conservative, bigoted society of the Straight Church, Fort has always regarded manlove with contempt and indifference. Not for him. Never for him.

Athletic, cocky and single-minded about he wants, Griff sets about getting it. Fort fights with everything in him, but Griff reaches him in a way no one else has ever done. It’s not just his strong, supple body. Fort is irresistibly drawn by the openhearted friendship the other man gives so freely.

Fort may have found a friend, but the cruel memories of his childhood are the greatest enemy of all. Love will be impossible unless he can win the battle within. And to do that, he must risk everything he is and everything he's ever believed in.
