Welcome

Welcome to Stems and Petals, home for the original fiction of Tory Temple. Here you will find fiction primarily centered around men loving men. If reading about boys kissing isn’t your thing, we suggest you go elsewhere. If pretty boys touching each other happens to ring your bell the same way it does mine, then welcome. Stay awhile, look around. Let me know if you like what you see.

In the final book of the Never Too Early series, cowboys Jake and Tor and firefighters Chance and Tucker have more on their plates than they bargained for. What started out as friendship has developed into strong feelings, and the couples continue to grow and learn about each other. However, adding two and two is more than a simple math problem. Words and emotions can be a dangerous mix, as the four men discover, and jealousy and miscommunication threaten what they’ve built together.

When two of the four unexpectedly connect, it sends all of them reeling. Pride is bruised and feelings are wounded, although they try desperately to hold themselves together in order to navigate this new territory. The physical distance between them all is both a blessing and a curse. When one of them reveals something that can’t be taken back, it threatens the relationships of all four men. How do two separate couples blend themselves to become one unit? The doubts and fears threaten to overwhelm them all, and no one will emerge unscathed.
