*****About TAKE TO THE SKY*****

TTTS Cover 650x993An angelic romance that’s Powerful, Suspenseful, Sexy, Uniquely Erotic, and Romantic.

In a secret Michigan Laboratory, an experiment developed a superior creation that was anticipated but not expected. He was the ultimate conception, a core life-being merged with avian. He was born with a gift, a rare one; the ability to fly.
His wings instinctively brought out the urge in him to fly, and Kellan’s need to be free became his obsession.
When the dark, swirling clouds loomed one night, Kellan abandoned the place he had called home, taking to the sky in search of his freedom and to seal his heart that seemed incomplete.
Because Kellan’s secret was too great for anyone outside the institute to know about, TC unleashed genetically altered Maniacs to bring him back.
Through independence, his amazing reality brought riveting adventures to a man he found and couldn’t seem to live without. They get tangled with hair-raising suspense that adds heart-pounding tension to every attempt they make at living their unique affair. They faced uncertainty so hectic that staying together was the least of their challenges, and it caused many of their bouts with passion to spiral in and out of chaos.
Along their frenzied path to survive, hidden secrets surface about Kellan, prompting each move they make in order to truly set him free.
Could Kellan’s one true love and passion to fly be the death of him?

It’s a magnificently inventive adventure of menace, romance, and extreme erotic pleasures.

*****Here’s an R-Rated Excerpt from Take to the Sky*****

TTTS Cover 650x993“Okay, I’m sorry,” Kellan said. “I only wanted your first flight to be memorable. Next time I’ll  go easy on you.”

“Ppphh! Next time?” Neil spat and started to walk away. “I don’t think so, there isn’t going to be a next time.”

“Get over here.” Still chuckling in a playful manner, Kellan reached for Neil’s wrist and  tugged. “Yes there will be, and I promise I’ll go easy on you.”

Neil jerked and spun into Kellan’s arms, hitting his chest hard. It seemed warmer this time and what Neil liked most of all was when Kellan wrapped his feathery wings around him for that added hug. And then there was the kiss. Another beautiful kiss that transported them to a world of their own and just like before, it was perfect.

Hardly a minute had passed when the thrill of the other’s touch set off definite arousal inside both their jeans that fought like hell to bust loose and connect in a way that only two men could.

Neil brought his hands to Kellan’s bare chest and stroked it. If he wasn’t mistaken, his chest wasn’t as smooth as it was before, maybe superfine feathers like the downy growth found on a newborn bird. It was shadow black where they were at and the darkness kept Neil from being able to tell for sure, but his exploring hands that roamed Kellan’s chest made him grow much harder than he was just seconds ago.

The low moans that came out of Kellan told Neil that whatever was happening between them needed to continue. When he felt Kellan’s tongue push between his teeth, he took that as proof that the angel wanted more of him.

Was it a good thing or a bad idea?

The night air was still, too still, almost peculiar enough to be a bad sign. It was like the calm before an approaching storm.

Neil longed for more of Kellan, but wasn’t sure it was the best thing for them to do. The idea of getting wrapped up with an angel who just escaped a top-secret government facility might not be a good one. He desperately tried to put his mind elsewhere, anywhere but on the man he was kissing. Anywhere in the universe would do fine, but the thought change wasn’t working to save his ass – he was hooked.



In a rural location no one talks about, hidden out of sight and out of mind, the unthinkable, the unfathomable takes place: gene-splicing that melds human and avian characteristics into a creature of exquisite grace. His name is Kellan, and he wants the one thing the keepers will not allow—his freedom.

Kellan is innocence and beauty and grace, everything is new and precious to him, and he sees and hears with the preternatural abilities of his avian heritage. When he escapes to the skies, you see the world through his eyes, you observe with him the wonder of manmade structures and inhale a sense of vastness that is frightening and exhilarating.

Enjoying his freedom, but knowing it can’t possibly last, Kellan seeks shelter near an old house where he encounters Neil and his dog, Dylan. Neil believes Kellan to be an angel and his hesitation, combined with acceptance, sets the tone for their developing bonds of friendship and more. The dance of discovery is gentle, sweet and fraught with emotions that develop slowly as they explore each other’s boundaries and nature.

Of course, the freedom Kellan craves does not last long, and he refuses to give in without a fight, yet he is not the sole advanced creature with unique abilities. The Seekers are like him, gifted with flight but lacking in empathy—the ultimate mindless machines. When the agents discover where Kellan has been holed up, Neil naturally comes under suspicion, and thus begins a frantic race to evade their pursuers, and eventually to find a way for Kellan to get the answers he seeks—about who he is and why he was created.

Take to the Sky combines great tension and suspense, the flight sequences are truly cinematic, authentically detailed, and left this reviewer biting her fingernails. Kellan and Neil—and yes, even the dog, Dylan—are charismatic, filled with the wonder of each other, and they are all characters you can’t but help root for.

I wasn’t sure what to expect—certainly not the simple charm of a love story interwoven in a fantasy adventure, and coupled with the overtones of a thriller. On the nitpicky side: there were some repetitious phrasings, some of the action sequence descriptions were repeated too frequently, and in places the word choice seemed out of character for the time and place, imposing a two-dimensional feel to the storytelling. On the upside, the concept is original and well-executed, especially when it comes to Kellan and his very unique abilities. Neil gives the impression of not being as well-fleshed out simply because what he brings to the table is overshadowed by Kellan’s commanding presence.

But Dylan? He gets a Milkbone and a wag of the tail.

One of my pet peeves is a story simply stopping without any closure—with a “to be continued” ending that is no ending at all. Aside from that, Take to the Sky brings a fresh take to the angel genre and for that it is a solid effort. It is wickedly entertaining, fraught with chills and thrills, and I eagerly look forward to the next installment. 4.5 stars.


TTTS Author PicGregory Jonathan Scott was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he met and shared a life with Scott that began just out of high school. Meeting by chance in Grand Rapids before relocating to South Florida where they live now with their lovable Shetland sheepdog and a sweet stray cat that showed up one day and decided to make their house a home. As a child, Gregory was always told he had a creative imagination and the artistic ability to turn a blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Shortly after high school graduation, and together with his true love Scott, discovered the thrill of pottery and ceramic art. Here is where they opened a business for ceramists that quickly exploded before their eyes as the number one location for any hobbyist, storefront and scholastic industry looking for supplies related to ceramics and pottery. During this time, Gregory was approached by art magazines to write short articles and educational columns pertaining to the ceramic artistry. Captivating readers by his writing style grew fast, which ignited his desire to express himself further. From there, it began. Finding a love for writing, alongside his artistic hand, gave him inspiration to design and write this M/M romance Novel. Gregory and Scott are still together and are currently enjoying home life in South Florida.

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
