While the WiP Shelf is the messy, creative part of my office, the Coming Soon shelf is the orderly side. Books listed here are either contracted or in production and only need polishing and buffing before they’re ready. Now that I’m getting the hang of this book-writing malarkey, I’m hoping to always have something on this page for you to look forward to…
Due out on 15th February!
Martin Pendleton was the most beautiful man I’d ever met. He was also the first man I’d ever been attracted to.
I’m Dean Gilchrist, and my twin sister Cat and I run a small tech startup. Looking for angel investors isn’t my favourite way to spend time. Not even when they’re gorgeous and charming. But there’s gorgeous and charming, and then there’s Martin Pendleton.
I’ve no idea why Martin caught my eye. Could be his charisma. Could be the hint of frost at his temples. Could be his voice. All I know is looking at him gives me the shivers and one word from him can turn me back into the awkward, tongue-tied nerd I used to be. Nobody else has ever managed that. It’s all very strange.
Stranger still, Cat is totally fine with my sudden interest in batting for the other team. Not that I’ve done an awful lot of batting for the regular side, you understand. And I have no idea how to go about wooing a guy. But the way Martin makes me feel? I’ve got to try this even if it kills me. And with the way bullets suddenly start flying… it just might.
A Rathbone & McGowan Story
Me and Mrs Jones. Ian Rathbone hates the song with everything he has. When he risks his life to shut down illegal weapons labs in a country still recovering from a military coup and six years of anarchy he doesn’t want to come home to hear it blare through his apartment, a wordless confession that his partner Tom has strayed once more.
After eighteen months and too many infidelities to count, Ian can’t help but wonder why he stays with Tom. Especially when his new work partner is loyal, genuine, and genuinely tempting Patrick McGowan.
Ian’s had his eye on Patrick for months. The chemistry between them is undeniable, but Ian doesn’t cheat.
Before he acts on his growing attachment, he needs time to sort out his relationship with Tom. Patrick is willing to give him that time, but in a danger-filled job like theirs, with a boss who disapproves of any kind of relationship between them, and with an unseen enemy who works to take down the Sweepers before they can get to him, will they even stand a chance?
Swings & Roundabouts | The Power of Zero #4
Jack Horwood doesn’t do things by halves. Once he’s decided to build a home and family with Gareth, Nico, and Daniel he’s all in, whether that means helping with homework, arguing with banks and builders or taking care of Gareth, who is snowed under with work and his freelance job for Aidan.
Stressed, tired and barely home, Gareth doesn’t believe that Jack finds looking after his home-made family as enjoyable as he claims. Doubts creep in and arguments soon follow until Jack organises a weekend break in Northern Sweden just for the two of them to sort out their issues.
What starts as a good idea turns into a murder hunt when they discover a dead body, frozen into the “furniture” of the famous Ice Hotel, and both Jack and his friend Oskar are implicated in the dead woman’s disappearance. Jack can only watch from the sidelines as Gareth steps up to help solve the murder, sure that it will bring all Gareth’s doubts back full force and put him once more on a collision course with Jack and their feelings for each other.
