Oh, I had trouble choosing which snippet to post today—only 2 days to go to release day for Lovers Leap!
In this little snippet, Michael has just been kicked out of his hotel (that’s the bit I nearly posted) and gone back to Rufus’s parents’ B&B to get a room there, leading to a certain amount of embarrassment for Rufus, seeing as his dad and stepmum are now home…
Michael crossed the hallway to Rufus’s door. Should he knock?
Nah. Michael opened the door and walked straight in.
For a moment, he thought the room was empty. Then he realised that what had seemed at first glance to be an unmade bed with the duvet left in a heap, was actually an occupied bed with someone hiding under the duvet. Michael grinned.
Then he leaped.
There was a muffled, “Argh!”
Lovers Leap is due out February 29th from Riptide:
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.
