Title: Place to Belong
Author: Claire Boston
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Sean Flanagan has spent a lifetime alone and rejected, constantly hiding who he really is.
With a father who deserted him and a mother who despised him, Sean didn’t think things could get much worse … until he was kicked out of home for being gay. Now he’s discovered he has three half-sisters on the other side of the world. This might be his last chance to find people who will love and accept him. But he’s terrified that if they find out who he really is then they’ll reject him like the rest of his family.
Sean arrives in Houston and is stunned by the warm welcome he receives from his sisters. He begins to hope that maybe this time things will be different. That’s when he meets Hayden Johnson. To follow his heart means risking everything with his newfound family.
Hayden is tired of endless dating. He’s looking for a man to love, someone to spend the rest of his life with. His boss’s new brother ticks all the boxes on the attraction scale, but there’s just one problem – he’s not gay.
Will Sean let his fears rule him, or will he let in the chance of love and find a place where he belongs?

Interview with Claire Boston
How did you come up with name of this book?
I did a lot of brainstorming! When I came up with Place to Belong, I felt it really fit the story, because Sean is looking for family and a place where he can belong and be himself.
Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I read widely, but at the moment I’m reading a lot of contemporary romance and romantic suspense. I also love fantasy and paranormal novels.
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
I prefer silence, but I can write in cafes and libraries because the conversation around me can be easily blocked out. I can’t have the radio or television on because it’s too distracting.
If you could choose one of your books to be made into a movie which would it be and why?
Oh, that’s a hard question! That’s like asking who my favorite child is. I think I’d ask the director what type of movie they were after. If they were looking for glitz and glamour then What Goes on Tour, All that Sparkles or even Change of Heart would be great in film because you have a rock star, a fashion designer and a billionaire. If I was to choose my favorite hero, then it would have to be George from Under the Covers, or even Hayden from Place to Belong – but then I run the risk of the actor not living up to my expectations. J Finally if they were looking for some more diversity, and stories that explore a few social issues then Into the Fire or Blaze a Trail which explore Native American culture and illegal immigration would make good films. But if you just want bang (literally) for your buck, then it would have to be Break the Rules.
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
I’m currently writing both a fiction and non-fiction book. The fiction is the first in a new romantic suspense series set in Australia, and the non-fiction is the next in my Beginner Writer’s Toolkit series.
