Take a look at Grown Men by Damon Suede
Hard Cell Universe: First Transmission
Rip Tide Publishing
Science Fiction, M/M
Every future has dirty roots.
Marooned in the galactic backwaters of the HardCell company, colonist Runt struggles to eke out an existence on a newly-terraformed tropical planetoid. Since his clone-wife died on entry, he’s been doing the work of two on his failing protein farm. Overworked and undersized, Runt’s dwindling hope of earning corporate citizenship has turned to fear of violent “retirement.”
When an overdue crate of provisions crashes on his beach, Runt searches frantically for a replacement wife among the tools and food. Instead he gets Ox, a mute hulk who seems more like a corporate assassin than a simple offworld farmer. Shackwacky and near-starving, Runt has no choice but to work with his silent partner despite his mounting paranoia and the unsettling appeal of Ox’s genetically altered pheromones. Ox plays the part of the gentle giant well, but Runt’s still not convinced he hasn’t arrived with murder in mind.
Between brutal desire and the seeds of a relationship, Runt’s fears and Ox’s inhuman past collide on a fertile world where hope and love just might have room to grow.

Damon has been swamped. The date for his visit slipped up on him. For your reading pleasure here are his interview answers.
Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
Damon: Hanging out with authors and readers in a low presh environment! I always have such a phenomenal time canoodling with cool people who love books as much as I do. That’s definitely the best part of any romance genre gathering…Beignets at 2am and a dirty Jameson’s on the back porch of the hotel while we swap recommendations. LOL That sounds like heaven.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Damon: I’m such a die-hard bibliophile that it’s an IMPOSSIBLE question to answer comprehensively and honestly, but I’d say Pride & Prejudice because it never stops unfolding in my imagintion.
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)
Damon: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Lady Dedlock, Myra Breckenridge, Samwise Gamgee, Li Kao, Cousin Bette
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
Damon: Kaz from Hard Head. He’s a secondary character in the sequel to Hot Head and bringing him to life has been hilarious and entertaining. He’s so seductive and goofy in this distinctive way that I’m pretty sure he’s gonna need his own book. :P
Ali: If you friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
*Favorite color: Greens, blues, purples, greys. Any dark, cool color. :) My closet looks like an aquarium.
