Prizes! I’m offering a free e-copy of my first Shamwell Tales novel, Caught!, which features a young man who’s unashamedly a little different to most of us, to a randomly chosen commenter on this post (if you’ve already got it, I’m happy to offer an alternative of winner’s choice from my backlist.) Just leave a comment below to be in with a chance – and please do check out the other posts on RJ’s list. I’m pretty sure there will be other prizes to be won! Good luck! 😀
You can run from the past…but the past runs faster
Behind Robert’s cheerfully eccentric exterior lies a young heart battered and bruised by his past. He’s
taken a job teaching in a village primary school to make a fresh start, and love isn’t part of his plans. But he’s knocked for six—literally—by a chance encounter with the uncle of two of his pupils.
Sean works in pest control, rides a motorbike, and lives on a council estate. On the face of it, he shouldn’t have anything in common with Robert’s bow-tie, classic-car style and posh family background. Yet Robert is helpless to resist Sean’s roguish grin, and a rocky, excruciatingly embarrassing start doesn’t keep the sparks between them from flaring.
Despite Robert’s increasingly ludicrous attempts to keep his past where it belongs, his past hasn’t read the memo. And soon his secrets could be the very things that drive Sean away for good…
Warning: contains the alarming misadventures of a pest control technician, a stepsister with a truly unfortunate name, and a young man who may have more bow ties than sense.
ETA: I’ll be keeping the draw open for 2 weeks, to give people a chance to work their way through all the participating blogs, and picking a winner out of a (virtual) hat around tea-time on April 15th. 🙂
