5.0 out of 5 stars Grab Your Sunscreen, Beach Chair, A Towel and this Novelette,
He lay back on his towel, pulled his cap down half-covering his eyes and watched. This guy was gorgeous—short black hair, a touch of the oriental look about him, and a slight but well-built body. Ace’s mouth watered just at the sight of all that glistening, golden brown skin.
Ace is from a small town in Australia and for the Holidays he treats himself to a vacation in exotic Thailand where he hopes to meet a man. He’s never been with a man before though he know that’s where his interest lie. Experimenting and self-discovery in a small town can be impossible.
There on the beach in Thailand, Ace spots the man of his dreams. His encounter with his mystery man grows eve more romantic as he’s able to use his paramedic skills to rescue the guy from drowning. It turns out that the man he saved, Matt, is from Australia also. A romance as sultry as the Thailand sun grows from there.

The novelette, Encounter in Paradise, is as luscious as its cover. The two sexy heroes and there hot yet warm hearted tale will sweep you away for an hour or so. It’s also a great beach read for sunning on the sandy shore or lounge chair. I highly recommend Encounter in Paradise.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great M/M Read January 3, 2015
“Encounter in Paradise” is a sensitive, well written “coming out” M/M story. When Australian Ace travels to Thailand on holiday, he never expected to play hero and save Matt’s life. Matt introduces him to the gay lifestyle he had denied himself at home. The two are from different worlds, however, and ghosts from the past could ruin their relationship. Overall, an enjoyable “feel good” read.
