Whoops! More than a little late posting this weekend – in fact, it’s only still the weekend here courtesy of the May bank holiday today. I blame the heat. 🙂
Today’s snippet is taken from Wight Mischief, which is due out in 2nd edition on Friday. Here, our hero Will is with his friend Baz, on their way to Will’s first (official) meeting with the other MC, Marcus:
“You know, it’d only take half an hour to walk there. Less, probably,” Will said as he drove the short distance from the campsite to Blackbridge Redoubt.
“Walk there?” Baz’s eyebrows were practically achieving liftoff. “What, you want us to turn up for the interview like a couple of itinerant tramps? I don’t think so.”
“Oh, so it’s a matter of looking professional, is it? Funny that. Looks a lot like laziness from where I’m sitting. Which, in case you’d forgotten, is behind the wheel of my old Fiat Panda, or as you once called it, the car that progress forgot.”
“Did I? I hope I also mentioned that style and taste have a bit of a dodgy memory where it’s concerned as well.

A ghost of a chance at love.
Personal trainer Will Golding has been looking forward to a getaway with his best friend, Baz, a journalist researching a book on ghosts. But on the first day of their camping trip on the Isle of Wight, Will takes a walk on a secluded beach and spies a beautiful young man skinny-dipping by moonlight. Ethereally pale, he’s too perfect to be real—or is he?
Lonely author Marcus Devereux is just as entranced by the tall athlete he encounters on the beach, but he’s spent the years since his parents’ violent death building a wall around his heart, and the thought of letting Will scale it is terrifying. Marcus’s albinism gives him his otherworldly appearance and leaves him reluctant to go out in daylight, his reclusiveness encouraged by his guardian—who warns him to stay away from Will and Baz.
The attraction between Will and Marcus can’t be denied—but neither can the danger of the secrets haunting Marcus’s past, as one “accident” after another strikes Will and Baz. If they don’t watch their step, they could end up added to the island’s ghostly population.
