Unconventional Lovers by Annette Mori






Unconventional Lovers
by Annette Mori
Genre: Contemporary LGBT Romance

Bri and Siera are young women with huge hearts and strong wills; they want nothing more than to find a peaceful and secure space to be, a place that fulfills their needs and gives them the freedom to be themselves. But the world is a harsh place for anyone who is different. 

Bri’s Aunt Olivia is a vet with a thriving practice. She is set in her ways, single and surviving, channeling her emotions into her work and her love of Bri.
Siera has a supportive but silent father, an overpowering helicopter mom, plus her Aunt Deb who adores her.
Despite their individual battles against hurt, prejudice and rejection, can these four women find love against the odds?











The old-fashioned grandfather clock chimed loudly, indicating the top of the hour, again. Kathleen frowned as she looked over at the clock that had been in her family for generations. She was amazed that it still worked, but at this moment, it was just another reminder that Siera wasn’t home yet.
Jeremy clasped his wife’s hand. “Hon, it’s only ten. You’re the one who is always encouraging Siera to make more of an effort to get to know other kids. High school was not easy on her. I think it’s wonderful that she’s met a new friend who she has something in common with.”
“Maybe I don’t want her hanging out with other Downs kids and limiting her potential. Siera is going to college in the fall; she’s special,” Kathleen declared.
“Oh, for Christ’s sake, Kath. Do you hear yourself? You’re the one who’s always blasting anyone for having preconceived notions about Siera. You haven’t even met the girl, and already you’re judging her in the same way that everyone judges Siera.”
“Oh God, Jeremy, you’re right. I can’t believe I just said that. Olivia seemed nice and very protective of Bri. I’m sure they were just delayed a little bit.”
Jeremy chuckled. “You’re acting like Siera is on her first date and you don’t trust the young man. Bri is a friend and it’s about time that Siera had someone to hang out with. I’m glad she met this young woman, and I hope they continue to develop a friendship. It’s good for Siera to be around other kids.”
“You mean other kids with Down syndrome.”
“It’s not like she can catch it from them,” Jeremy quipped.
“That’s not funny. Crap. I’m doing it again, aren’t I?” Kathleen sighed.
Jeremy nodded. “You told me that Bri works in her aunt’s vet clinic. I’ll bet she has no problem keeping up with Siera.”
“Her aunt did say that Bri was advanced and relatively self-sufficient. She seemed to have a lot of pride about her niece’s capabilities.”
“Jeez, hon. What did you do? Interrogate her?” Jeremy asked.
“No, I did not interrogate her! We just had a polite conversation, and she was very open about herself and Bri. I think she understood my need to be protective. She wasn’t at all offended,” Kathleen defended.






Annette is an award-winning author, published by Affinity Rainbow Publications, who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her wife and their five furry kids. With ten published novels and one Goldie Award for her fourth novel, Locked Inside, she finally feels like a real author. Annette is as much a reader as a writer and always looking for the next lesfic novel to cue up. She came up with the One Fan at a Time tagline because it rolled off the tongue much better than One Reader at a Time. After pondering who she was at her core, it was all about connecting to each reader on a personal level. She would be the first to admit she doesn't do well with the masses. If someone picks up her book and it touches them she believes she has achieved what she wants with her writing by reaching each reader. It is who she is at her core.
