Spun-200x300With friends like these . . .

An ill-advised encounter at the office party leaves David Greenlake jobless and homeless in one heady weekend. But he quickly begs work from his ex-boss and takes a room in Shamwell with easy-going postman Rory Deamer. David doesn’t mean to flirt with the recently divorced Rory—just like he doesn’t consciously decide to breathe. After all, Rory’s far too nice for him. And far too straight.

Rory finds his new lodger surprisingly fun to be with, and what’s more, David is a hit with Rory’s troubled children. But while Rory’s world may have turned upside down in the last few years, there’s one thing he’s sure of: he’s straight as a die. So he can’t be falling for David . . . can he?

Their friends and family think they know all the answers, and David’s office party hook-up has his own plans for romance. Rory and David need to make up their minds and take a stand for what they really want–or their love could be over before it’s even begun.

Now available in ebook and paperback:  Riptide Amazon

Rainbow Snippets is failing to impress the boss

Today’s snippet is taken from the about-to-be-released Shamwell Tales #4, Spun!, which is due out on 3rd July (but should be available to download from the Riptide website early – either today or tomorrow, I think).

Here, our (possibly slightly inebriated) hero David is enjoying himself a little too much at a party given by his (soon-to-be-ex) employer:

David found himself seized and kissed to within an inch of his sanity. After that, matters soon came to, well, a head, and David was on his knees, willingly sucking down Xav’s sizeable manhood.

Then the curtains, which had at some point closed behind them, were flung open. There was a shrill cry of “Xavier!” followed by a hand which clapped David’s shoulder with bruising force and yanked him away from his task.

Oops. David twisted and came face-to-face with his employer, who was visibly quivering with ire.

Out! is now in second edition on Amazon

…and hopefully available everywhere else, too. 🙂

Out! – #3 in The Shamwell Tales

Out-200x300

When love wars with principle, which one will win?

Mark Nugent has spent his life in the closet—at least, the small portion of it he hasn’t spent in the office. Determined to make amends to his neglected teenage daughter from a failed marriage, Mark swears off work—and love—so he can give her a stable home environment. But Mark’s resolve to keep his heart under wraps is tested when he meets an out and proud young man he’s instantly drawn to.

Patrick Owen is a charity worker with strong principles. He doesn’t trust easily, but he’s blown away by his attraction for the older man who’s so new to his own sexuality. Yet Mark is adamant he’s not coming out to his daughter—and Patrick refuses to live a lie.

What with Mark’s old-fashioned attitudes and his flirtatious ex-colleague who’s determined to come between them, Patrick begins to wonder if they’ll ever be on the same page. And when Mark’s career as a tax advisor clashes with Patrick’s social conscience, sparks really start to fly—in all the wrong ways.

Now available in ebook and paperback:

Riptide Publishing  | Amazon

Note: this book was previously published by Samhain Publishing. The second edition contains only minor revisions.

Rainbow Snippet is taking a pit stop

Apologies for being missing in action for a couple of weeks!

Today’s snippet is taken from the newly re-released Out!, the third of my Shamwell Tales, which is out today from Riptide Publishing (and will be on sale at all other vendors from Monday).

Our heroes, cover boy Mark and Patrick, have been caught short during a three-legged charity pub crawl:

There was no one else in there as they stood side by side at the urinals and unzipped. Patrick cast a glance over towards Mark’s face and nearly cracked up at the way he was resolutely staring dead ahead at the plain white tiles on the wall. “You can look if you want,” he said. “I won’t tell anyone.”

Mark’s face went as red as his shirt. “I wasn’t looking!”

“I know you weren’t. That’s why I’m telling you, you can.” Patrick grinned as Mark’s gaze darted over for about a millisecond, then nailed itself back to the wall.
