Please say hello to K.A. Mitchell and
Take A Chance On It
Ready Or Knot #3
Hi, Thank you so much for the opportunity to talk to you about Take a Chance On It, the third book in my Ready or Knot series.
Usually, I don’t plan to write a series. My series happen because characters want their own books and they won’t shut up until I write one for them. That wasn’t the case with this series. I had an idea I couldn’t let go of, a best man who suffers through the wedding of the man he’s in love with. Because I never make things easy on myself or my characters, it didn’t end up being the first book in the series but the third. And it hurt to write even more than I thought it would. There’s some heavy duty angst ahead, but I guarantee a happy ending. I hope there are also some laughs and sexy times to enjoy too.
Below’s an exclusive sneak peek at Gideon helping Dane get ready to marry someone else, despite having been in love with Dane for over fifteen years.
Left at the altar by his long-time lover, Spencer, and in desperate need of quality health insurance, Dane Archer can’t say no when his best man and best friend, Gideon DeLuca, steps in. But Dane and Gideon have history, tangled and passionate and complicated.
After seventeen years of cat and mouse, Gideon has realized Dane isn’t the kind of man who ever wants to be caught, and he’s stopped playing Dane’s game.
For Dane, it’s never been a game, but sexual fidelity isn’t his strong suit. Love is too beautiful for limits, something he’s never been able to get Gideon the control freak to understand. Now Dane has nothing but limits, including the timeline on his paper-only marriage to Gideon.
Gideon’s the only person Dane trusts enough to lean on, and Gideon will do anything to get Dane through this crisis. Anything but fall for Dane again.
Living together forces Dane and Gideon to stop circling and face what’s been between them all these years. They just don’t know if they have the power or the time to make things right.
What they do know is that they’re not ready for it to be over.
Exclusive Sneak Peek:
“Are you sure it’s supposed to be that tight?” Dane added a strangled gasp as Gideon slid the knot in the silk to Dane’s collar button.
“So don’t wear it.” Gideon stepped back, best man duties all accomplished until he had to produce the ring. “Whose idea was it to wear suits anyway?”
“Mine.” Dane shifted in front of the mirror, patting the knot in his tie. “First time for everything. Or in my case, a last time.”
Gideon wasn’t taking that bait. He looked out of the window at the waiting chairs, the arch made of driftwood on the end of the pier. “You wore a suit for Mama T’s funeral.”
“But not a tie. This tight? Really?”
“You get used to it. Like anything else.” Because there wasn’t much of an alternative.
Gideon hadn’t been aware of anything leerworthy in his statement, but Dane had never needed cause to exhibit his libido.
“Want to get a last one in?” Dane moved into Gideon’s space.
“I thought the treatment was keeping you down.”
“You know I have an exhibitionist/rushed-sex kink.”
“What isn’t your kink?” Gideon kept his gaze on the wedding paraphernalia outside, until he heard the purr of Dane’s zipper.
“Come on, baby. Ride it like you stole it.”
Dane—damn him—had a gorgeous dick, and he knew it, but Gideon had seen it and had it enough times to be unimpressed. At least as far as an immediate arousal. No, the problem was all the memories that went with it. And the completely unavailable man who came attached to that beautiful dick.
“Put that away before you hurt yourself.” Gideon gripped the window ledge behind him, in need of support in case his brain lost the battle with dumber organs.
Dane—and his dick—deflated, though his smile was bright as ever. “Now you know it’s just a weapon of love.”
Love had never had anything to do with where Dane stuck his dick. Knowing that was as good as a cold shower. Gideon folded his arms over his chest and leaned back. “Seriously?”
“Maybe I was.” Dane checked himself out in the mirror again. “We’re really doing this, you know.”
“Don’t be an idiot. That’s why we’re all here.”As Dane stalked toward him, Gideon’s skin responded by prickling in awareness, because no matter what his brain told him, contact with Dane was never casual.

Meet the author:
K.A. Mitchell discovered the magic of writing at an early age when she learned that a carefully crayoned note of apology sent to the kitchen in a toy truck would earn her a reprieve from banishment to her room. She never stopped making stuff up and was pleased to find out that people would pay her to do it. Over twenty books later, she’s still in love with writing. Reviewers and readers alike have called her a “gateway drug” to gay romance. Although the men in her stories usually carry more emotional baggage than even LAX can lose in a year, she guarantees they always find their sexy way to a happy ending.
