ABOUT THE BOOK
Chance Irving is a young man with a gift for getting into trouble—not surprising, as trouble is all he’s ever known. After losing everything he held dear one fateful night, he decides to leave New York and his past behind, and joins the French Foreign Legion. But even in Algiers, Chance can’t seem to shake his old ways, and he ends up being transferred to a unit made up of misfits and rabble-rousers like him—a unit he finds just in time to be captured and thrown into a cell with his new commandant, Jacky Valentine.
A highly respected commandant with a soft spot for hard luck cases, Jacky is the kind of guy who would go to war for you, and the three equally troubled youths from his unit he’s more or less adopted feel the same way about him. Suddenly Chance starts to think that his life doesn’t have to be as desolate and barren as the wastelands around him.
But even after their escape, with the promise of a future with Jacky to buoy his spirits, or maybe because of it, Chance can’t stop making mistakes. He disobeys orders, lashes out at the boys in Jacky’s care, and blazes a trail of self-destruction across the desert—until someone makes him realize he’s hurting more than just himself.

Yesterday I woke up to no internet, phone, or TV service. A problem which wouldn’t get sorted until this afternoon. However finding this lovely review for Chance in my inbox couldn’t have come at a better time, as I’m busy working away on Johnnie’s story for his upcoming deadline (more about that soon!).
Susan Mac Nicol from The Romance Reviews had some truly wonderful things to say about the book. I’m so glad she enjoyed it. She said,
“This was truly a story unlike anything I’ve read in this genre before. The characters themselves are all so well drawn and portrayed, the writing flows and ebbs with emotions and wonderful situations, and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The plot is well thought through, the relationship between Chance and Jacky beautifully written with sympathy, humour and the inevitable growing affection between the two men.”

Hello all! Join me over at MANtastic Fiction where I’m one of this week’s GayRomLit Reading Challenge Authors. Today I’m hosting an interview with the heroes of my latest release, Chauncey Irving (Chance) and Jacky Valentine from The Auspicious Troubles of Chance. For the most part, Chance behaved himself, and quite frankly I’m surprised he sat still long enough. Jacky may have had something to do with it.
Also, you can leave your own questions for the fellas, and enter to win a free eBook copy of Chance’s story. Contest is open until Wednesday July 25th, 11:59pm (PST).
