I’ve been busy getting some of my Samhain books back up on Amazon, and one of them is Hard Tail, my cycle-shop romance set near Southampton.
Here’s a little snippet featuring our hero, Tim, who’s staying in his brother’s house after the break up of his (Tim’s) marriage:
I wrapped a towel round my waist and was about to go downstairs when it occurred to me I was alone here. No one to care if I walked around naked; no one to hiss what if the neighbours look through the window at me. I blew a kiss at my hazy reflection in Jay’s tiny bathroom mirror; already the clear patch I’d wiped was misting over again. After slinging the towel over the side of the bath, I sauntered downstairs, my cock bouncing lightly at every step. Damn, it felt good to be free.
Until, of course, the front door opened when I was halfway down the stairs and [Jay’s girlfriend] Olivia stepped into the house, her eyes exactly level with my tackle.

Southampton Stories #2
Finding love can be a bumpy ride
With his job and his marriage dead in a ditch, Tim Knight doesn’t take much persuading to leave London for the greener fields of Southampton and look after his injured brother’s mountain bike shop. But Tim’s a fish out of water in this brave new world of outdoor sports and technical jargon—not to mention struggling with the realisation he can no longer deny his sexuality, at least to himself.
The reason? Matt Berridge, his brother’s bike mechanic. Fit, tanned and an adorable klutz, Matt takes a tumble the day they meet and falls straight into Tim’s heart. There’s only one problem: Matt’s boyfriend, who Tim’s convinced is abusing him, despite the stories Matt comes up with to explain away the bruises.
A black belt in karate, Tim’s no pushover when it comes to physical confrontation. But he’ll need to step his courage up a gear if he’s ever going to come out, be himself—and save the man he’s coming to love.
LOL. Carefree one moment and oops, the next. Perhaps Olivia won’t mind!
Heh – Olivia is not only unfazed, she takes the opportunity to do a little trolling… 😉
Heheh…I figured. I’ve read the book, but it’s been so long I’ve forgotten the details. I’m surprised that particular detail didn’t stick!
Hahaha! Oh, dear. I hope she’s the understanding sort.
“Understanding” is not quite how I’d put it… 😉
Talk about being caught letting all hang loose! 🙂
Yeah, the poor guy won’t be doing that again in a hurry! 😉
So much for being home alone!
Bwahahahaha, isn’t that always the way?
Haha, you just knew someone was going to come in and get an eyeful 🙂
