Lee trades country ballads for show tunes in the next standalone book of her M/M series, Roadmap to Your Heart.
After licking his wounds from a painful relationship, Tate Sullivan is ready to move back home. He picks up where he left off as drag queen extraordinaire Frieda Love in a West Village bar in New York City. He doesn’t expect to be drawn to the mysterious man with the dark eyes who shows up to every single performance—flirtatiously eyeing Tate one second and disappearing on him the next. Why mess around with a guy who is clearly giving him mixed signals?
Sebastian Clark is on a mission the first night he shows up at Ruby Redd’s. He doesn’t anticipate his plan being flipped on its head by the charismatic drag queen and even more so by the mesmerizing man beneath the makeup. But the more he learns about the vibrant and brash Tate Sullivan the more intrigued he becomes. So he pushes aside his guilt about why he sought out the bar in the first place in order to get to know the guy behind the stilettos.
They’re opposites on many levels, but as Tate spends time volunteering with Sebastian at the shelter, he begins to feel good about himself in ways he hadn’t before. For Sebastian, Tate represents a sense of fun and freedom that is completely fresh and invigorating. Before they know it, their easy companionship catches fire, and Sebastian is kissing a man for the first time, while Tate is opening his heart to new possibilities. But Sebastian is still keeping a secret, and Tate will have to decide if he can trust again, or if the betrayal he feels from Sebastian’s confession is too much to overcome.
Sebastian Clark is a dream of a man. He has responsibility, he cares for people, he does what's right because he wants to--not because he has too. And, oh, yeah, he happens to be super HOT as well. So what happens when his best friend dies and he is sent on a mission to make things right? The conservative good guy gets a bit flummoxed. Could it be that what Sebastian understood his purpose in life to be was only a smoke screen? Was he living how he felt society wanted him to live and not what was truly in his heart? The beautiful drag queen Freida Love turned Sebastian's world view right around.
Our heroes are both struggling with their identity through most of the book. Tate is Frieda but he wants to be loved for being Tate. Sebastian is trying to come to terms with his attraction to Tate. Up to this point he has identified hetero. Lies have been told. There is some real inner turmoil happening with these two.
Ultimately, the author brings you the message any followers of her have heard loud and clear: love is love is love. It matters not who you love but that you are able to love at all.
Go ahead and meet Tate and Sebastian. They have a lot to say. Open your heart and listen.
