Rainbow Snippets is celebrating Isle of Wight Pride

As a proud caulkhead (Isle of Wight native) I’m delighted to say it’s the first ever Isle of Wight Pride today, and to celebrate, here’s an excerpt from my Island-set rom-com, Lovers Leap:

In this scene, our grumpy hero Michael has just been shoved into the sea off Sandown Pier (spoilers! he deserved it) and taken home by our perkier protagonist Rufus to get out of those wet clothes:

[Michael] “Oi. Are you perving on my dick?”

Rufus’s face, which, let’s—hah—face it, had been feeling pretty warm already, went red-hot. “No.” It was possibly the least convincing lie he’d ever told. In a long, sad line of unconvincing lies that went all the way back to “No, I never play with dollies.”

“You’re perving on my dick, aren’t you? Jesus. Here I am, only seconds away from near-death of hypothermia, chafed so bad I practically need a skin graft, and you’re perving on my bloody dick.”

That was totally unfair. Rufus wasn’t just perving on his dick.

Lovers Leap

LoversLeap_200x300Finalist in the Bisexual Book Awards for 2016

If they looked, would they ever leap?

Good-looking, confident, and doted on by his widowed mum, Michael is used to thinking only of himself. Getting shoved off an Isle of Wight pier by an exasperated ex ought to come as a wake-up call—but then he meets Rufus and he’s right back to letting the little head take charge. Rufus is cute, keen, and gets under Michael’s skin in a disturbing way.

Would-be chef Rufus can’t believe his luck when a dripping wet dream of a man walks out of the sea on his birthday, especially when Michael ends up staying at the family B&B. Life is perfect—at least until Michael has to go home to the mainland.

Rufus can’t leave the island for reasons he’s entirely neglected to mention. And though Michael identifies as bi, breaking his mum’s heart by coming out and having an actual relationship with a guy has never been his plan. With both men determined to keep their secrets, a leap of faith could land them in deep water.

Spun! blog tour winner

The random number generator has chosen a winner for the Spun! blog tour, and it’s Trix, who commented on (among others) Wicked Faerie’s Tales.

Thanks to everyone who commented on the tour, and to all the blogs who hosted me! 😀

Spun-200x300With friends like these . . .

An ill-advised encounter at the office party leaves David Greenlake jobless and homeless in one heady weekend. But he quickly begs work from his ex-boss and takes a room in Shamwell with easy-going postman Rory Deamer. David doesn’t mean to flirt with the recently divorced Rory—just like he doesn’t consciously decide to breathe. After all, Rory’s far too nice for him. And far too straight.

Rory finds his new lodger surprisingly fun to be with, and what’s more, David is a hit with Rory’s troubled children. But while Rory’s world may have turned upside down in the last few years, there’s one thing he’s sure of: he’s straight as a die. So he can’t be falling for David . . . can he?

Their friends and family think they know all the answers, and David’s office party hook-up has his own plans for romance. Rory and David need to make up their minds and take a stand for what they really want–or their love could be over before it’s even begun.

Now available in ebook and paperback:  Riptide Amazon
