Virtual Book Tour ~ Operation Green Card (A Bluewater Bay Story) by G.B. Gordon (Guest Post + Giveaway)

About Operation Green Card

Arkady Izmaylov is a family man. He’s also gay. In Russia. His sister Natalya has been telling him to get out for years, but it’s only after an attack in the street that he finally concedes and says yes to her desperate plan of him marrying a stranger for a green card.

Jason Cooley was taught from birth that he’s no good to anyone. Then the military taught him he was good enough to save other lives, but that purpose got amputated along with his leg. He’s now working security at Wolf’s Landing and sending monthly checks to his ex for their daughter’s education. When Natalya asks him to marry her brother, Jason knows right away he’ll do it more for the mission than the money she’s offering. But when he actually meets Arkady, his mission turns complicated.

Jason quickly discovers he’s not as straight as he thought. He’s also the man of Arkady’s dreams. Arkady must convince Jason that he’s worth loving, and that Arkady won’t disappear from his life like everyone else. Because Arkady has always wanted a family of his own, and he’s not letting go of this one.

Who are they?
Hello and welcome to day four of the Operation Green Card blog tour. Many thanks to our wonderful hosts for letting me guest blog in their space. Someone asked me to describe my characters in three words, and I immediately had so many questions. Like, three words each? Physical description? Likes? Character? Or three for both? Their relationship? Am I supposed to decided this?
It's like the man said: if I could have done it in three words (well, six) I wouldn't have had to write a novel about it. ;) But for the sake of argument and this blog post, and if someone held a gun to my head, I'd go with three words for each of the main characters: -Jason: solid, taciturn, perceptive -Arkady: dreamy, social, family-centered As for their relationship in three words: It-is- complicated. (Hey, no spoilers. You'll still want to read the book.)
(And don't forget to leave your email addy for the raffle.)
Thanks for dropping by everyone. Feel free to comment or ask questions.

About Bluewater Bay

Welcome to Bluewater Bay! This quiet little logging town on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula has been stagnating for decades, on the verge of ghost town status. Until a television crew moves in to film Wolf’s Landing, a soon-to-be cult hit based on the wildly successful shifter novels penned by local author Hunter Easton.

Wolf’s Landing’s success spawns everything from merchandise to movie talks, and Bluewater Bay explodes into a mecca for fans and tourists alike. The locals still aren’t quite sure what to make of all this—the town is rejuvenated, but at what cost? And the Hollywood-based production crew is out of their element in this small, mossy seaside locale. Needless to say, sparks fly.

This collaborative story world is brought to you by eleven award-winning, best-selling LGBTQ romance authors: L.A. Witt, L.B. Gregg, Z.A. Maxfield,  Heidi Belleau, Rachel Haimowitz, Anne Tenino, Amy Lane, SE Jakes, G.B. Gordon, Jaime Samms and Ally Blue. Each contemporary novel stands alone, but all are built around the town and the people of Bluewater Bay and the Wolf’s Landing media empire.
