Charles Norris Williamson & Alice Muriel Williamson

Alice Muriel Williamson (1869 - September 24, 1933) was a British novelist.

Born Alice Muriel Livingston, she married Charles Norris Williamson (1859–1920) in 1894 and many of her books were jointly written with her husband. After her marriage she introduced herself as Mrs. C.N.Williamson. A number of their novels cover the early days of motoring and can also be read as travelogues.

Under the pseydonym Alice Stuyvesant she wrote "The Hidden House" serialised in The Cavalier Dec 13, Dec 20, Dec 27 1913, and Jan 3, Jan 10 1914.

Charles Norris Williamson wrote many of his published works in partnership with his wife, Alice who apparently said of him "Charlie Williamson could do anything in the world except write stories": she also said "I can't do anything else." Charles wrote some novels on his own, as did Alice after her husband's death in 1920.

by KC Kendricks
Erotic contemporary gay romance
ISBN-13: 978-1-61124-169-3 (Electronic)

http://www.amberquill.com/AmberAllure/HighwayNights.html  

Garrett Webb has a five-point plan for starting his own business. To keep it on track, he takes a second job and settles into the evening delivery run between Owensville and Mt. Franklin. The solitude of being on the road clears his head and enables him to chart a better future for himself. When a foggy night sends him to the safety of The Downshift Diner and its owner, Oliver Sanderson, that future takes an unforeseen turn.

Oliver Sanderson enjoys a quiet life along the lonely stretch of highway that’s home to his diner. The road brings all manner of interesting souls to his door. When Garrett Webb steps out of the fog seeking shelter, his openness and honesty draws Oliver’s interest. He’s ready to take the next step, but needs to be cautious. Trouble is coming to the diner, and Oliver wants Garrett clear of it.

Good intentions can’t hold out against their budding attraction. Garrett makes the diner a regular stop during his nightly run, and the men get better acquainted. But Garrett’s past isn’t done with him. In a single heart-stopping moment, Garrett is forced to a decision that risks Oliver’s life – one that could forever end their highway nights.

Death by Misfortune by A.M. Riley

The only complain I have on this novel is that this is a good mystery / thriller. Well, that is not a complaint at all you would say, and indeed it was hard to find something that was not good and to me, romance lover and all, that was the only point: I remember Bill and Christopher from Amor en Retrogrado and I was really glad to have the chance to read about them again, especially since in the previous novel their story was left hanging. And so, when I started this second book, I was eager to meet again Bill and above all Christopher; the author was nice enough to reintroduce me to Bill on chapter 3, but Christopher only made an appearance by phone, and I had to wait more or less 1/3 of the book to have him by person.

Actually this was not a novelty, but more a common occurrence; I remember that many of Bill and Christopher’s scene are by phone, with Bill calling Christopher to postpone an appointment, or Christipher calling Bill to be sure he was able to make one of their appointments. The phone is at the same time their main connection but also their main element of misunderstanding, on the phone they are cold and detached and it’s easier to break the connection. Truth be told, Christopher is very patient and even if most of the time Bill relapses in his closet, Christopher is always ready to welcome him with a smile and a kiss when Bill tentatively opens the doors of that closet and glances outside.

Amor en Retrogrado was the story of Robert and JD and Bill and Christopher played a nice but supporting role in the background; now in Death by Misfortune they have their center stage and the author introduce Becket and Jeremy. Like for Bill and Christopher, and for Robert and JD, also between Becket and Jeremy there is the stronger partner, Becket (stronger not in body but in personality), and the more subdue one Jeremy; but like in the past, Robert, Bill, Becket all have their issue to overcome and all of them have a sympathetic partner (JD, Christopher, Jeremy) waiting for them. It’s not always assured the partner will have the necessary patience, like Penelope with Ulysses, to wait their lover find the right path towards the life in common that is waiting for them, but that is the good of these novels, these characters will give you plenty of surprises and also a little bit of heartache.
