Bashert @dreamspinners #Heartwarming #Anthology #GLBT

I'm very excited to have my story published in the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Advent Calendar - Heartwarming, which is now available for early purchase at a discount. I love the cover. Thank you Paul Richmond, for the fabulous art work. 

Here's a brief description from the web site and the blurb for my short story.

The holidays bring first dates, new love, reunions, and a renewal of devotion to a relationship. Romance can warm even the most cynical or sad of hearts, and these stories will get you in the mood for love. Your Christmas present to yourself!

Bashert by Gale Stanley

Is it possible to be a good Jew and a gay man?

Not for Jonah Stern. He can’t reconcile his faith with his attraction to boys, so he turns his back on Judaism. A college scholarship is Jonah’s ticket to freedom from his disapproving parents. Next step: losing his virginity to Christian, the blue-eyed blond man of his dreams.

Instead, Jonah has a fateful meeting with Aaron Blumberg and ends up celebrating Hanukkah. Aaron tells him they’re bashert—meant to be. But Jonah has doubts. He believes his lack of faith will create a wedge between them. It’s up to Aaron to bridge the gap and convince Jonah to take a leap of faith.
