A-Summers-Day-Customdesign-JayAheer2016-smallpreview.jpgA Summer’s Day – Shakespearean Anthology with a Twist

Are you a fan of Shakespeare? Of MM romance? Or maybe both?
To celebrate the legacy of Shakespeare, who 400 years after his death continues to inspire many of us, we created an Anthology based on his works. An M/M anthology, just the way we like it, containing 12 unique stories.

Includes my story, Nothing Like the Sun:

Hollywood darling Jerome Winter always defined himself by his looks—until a fire destroyed them.
His oldest friend and still-loyal manager, Sam, has long carried a torch for him, but with his looks—and earning power—gone, what does Jerome have left to offer?
(Sonnet 130)

All proceeds will go to It Gets Better

Best_Anthology.NIncludes my story: Lost and Found on Lindisfarne

It was a hot summer’s day on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The lanes were dusty underfoot, the languid breeze was heavy with the scent of the North Sea, and a Viking had just offered to buy my daughter…

When single father Chris meets a Viking re-enactor on Lindisfarne, he thinks it’s the perfect recipe for a holiday fling – and nothing more. Chris had a relationship with a free spirit like Ian before, and it didn’t end well for him or for his daughter Kelis.

But Chris hasn’t reckoned with the Viking way of taking all you’re willing to give – and coming back for more.

I can’t remember when was the last time I enjoyed an anthology as much as I did this time… It was the hopes and dreams these stories evoked inside me, the smells and sounds of summer overlaid with memories of fleeting romances that somehow you always wished would linger long after the vacation was over but never did. I highly recommend this collection and loved them all – 4.75 stars, Melanie, Joyfully Jay

My story: All at Sea
Josh feels all at sea on the Isle of Wight. He’d rather be living it up in Ibiza, dancing until all hours, and maybe meeting the man of his dreams.  What chance has he got of getting lucky with his newly-single mum and little sisters in tow?  Things seem to be looking up when a gorgeous boatman with a way with words invites Josh out.  But even love on an island isn’t always plain sailing.
