So here’s a snippet from Lovers Leap, my romantic comedy due out on Leap Day, 29th February:
Story so far: Our unlikely hero Rufus has just found a stranger, Michael, walking out of the sea, fully clothed and dripping wet, on the Isle of Wight in February…
He swallowed, because this was starting to seem like it might be about to turn into one of his dreams or a porno or something (not a lot of difference, if he was honest, most of the time). Was this the bit where the wet guy winked at him and said, Come on then, don’t you want to get me out of these wet clothes?
What the wet guy actually did was scowl and say, “Well? You just gonna stand there and watch me die of hypothermia, or are you gonna get me somewhere warm?”
