Ash and Serge, aka Sparky, have always felt a pull to each other, a special connection – a draw that not only tugs at the heart, but at the denims too. Afraid to act upon these feelings and risk ruining their friendship, they fight it until faced with a life-threatening situation. Not once, but twice. Can Ash and Sparky’s relationship withstand these battles they face while slowly crawling through the depths of hell for each other? Or will pride cause them to miss their one real chance at happiness?
Dream cast of actors for Passion’s Pride
My characters are exactly who they are. I wouldn’t want a ‘cast’ for them, unless the real ppl on the covers could play them. I choose my covers very specific to what plays out in my head and what I see them as. The only dream cast is for the cover models themselves to play that part, I don’t think anyone else could do that for them, at least not in my head.
Give background information about your characters.
Ash-born into the family finances, grew up rich, but had to fake his way through life with his parents for acceptance. Heart of Gold, but doesn’t know how to show it much, he’s always being judged by someone, or thinks he is. Insecure to a point.
Serge (aka Sparky)-Overall well balanced and loves life, no matter what. Flirty & quirky. Fun, a bit hyperactive, but also a heart of Gold. When he loves, he loves hard.
Damien-Professional. Works hard for what he has and fights to keep it. Rocky past, but he learned to let love in, and it has him by the ying-yang.
Dax-Blue collar worker, heart of passion, hence the name of the series, The Passion Series. He threw everything up in the air for love, and found it with Damien. Woo hoo.
Braxton-Kind heart and soul, gives everyone the benefit of the doubt. He loves Payce, and has since he was a kid. He never let that go, not ever, there was one man for him, and it was Payce. No one could replace that. Payce stole his heart.
Payce-Stubborn and hard-headed. He too only loved one person his whole life, and that was Brax. In fact, he loved him enough to walk away for 7 years in order to protect Braxton. Shit happened, and fate brought them back together again. He tried to fight it off, because he didn’t want to hurt Brax, but this time around Braxton wasn’t letting go. Payce broke, and lost that control and hard-headedness for the most part. Payce is closed off, from everyone, except when it comes to Brax and Sparky. Payce scares ppl. lol
Sparky’s POV from Passion’s Pride
Still straddling him around the waist, latched on to him like a tree frog on glass, he opens the front door, then kicks it closed behind us with the heel of his boot. Hottness!
“That was the bravest thing anyone has ever done for me, Serge.” The pupils in his eyes dilate, making them a sultry and seductive shade of brown.
“I was just showing off for you. See, chivalry isn’t dead.” I wind my arms around his neck.
“But you could have been killed and why? It wasn’t worth the risk.” Ash holds on tight to me.
“Put me down, right now.” I demand.
Ash releases me, and I stand there with my hand on my hip trying to decide how to address him on his remark. My foot echoes down the hallway, as I tap it against the entry way tiles.
“What? Why are you looking at me like that?” He cocks his head to the side. He’s so freaking adorable when he does that and it’s making it difficult for me to concentrate.
“Because of what you just said, Mister. I’m not sure whether to smack you across the face, withhold the goodies, or actually explain it so that you understand it clearly.” I’m trying so hard to keep a straight face.
“Withhold the goodies? I’d rather take the slap, to be honest.”
“Well, okay, I wasn’t really going to do either or those things, because that would be sort of like punishing myself, which I am totally not into, by the way, but it sounded really convincing, didn’t it?”
“Very much so.” Ash grins at me.
“Almost like I’d taken acting lessons or something. Buuuuut, back to the matter at hand, it was worth the risk. You’re worth the risk to me. I’ve waited for two long years hoping you’d actually kiss me one day, and wa-laa, you did. That’s worth a bullet to the skull any day of the week.” I point my finger to my temple like a gun.
“Do you ever take anything seriously? I mean it. Aaron is one crazy nutcrack, this could have ended way differently. And by the way, I’ve wanted to kiss you for a long time too.” Ash crouches over, thrusting one shoulder forward, then the other and, stalks in closer to me.
“Wait! Hold the damn phone, you have?” Ash grins, then nods.
“Then what in the Sam Hill took you so long then?” This better be good.
