One more snippet from House Hunt, before I move on to offer you something else next week.
Release day has come and gone and I seem to have survived it with the help of friends and plenty of distraction. Now it’s back to do some serious writing… once I’ve made up my mind which story to finish from the towering WiP pile to work on.
Meanwhile, here’s a final bit of Jack & Gareth. The two have escaped the hustle and bustle of Whitstable after their epic brunch and have just arrived in a secluded little spot in the middle of the Weald. And yes, this is the car that Jack is driving.
Jack unlocked the boot, ready to get out of the car and retrieve the TVR’s roof. Before he could move, Gareth wrapped a hand around his neck and pulled him closer until the center console got in the way. Jack didn’t fight. He braced his elbows on magnolia leather and leaned across the barrier into Gareth’s touch. Their kiss was slow and languid, more teasing than enticing.
“Really not the car for that,” Gareth commented when he leaned back to put space between them. “Though I could imagine spreading you across that bonnet.”
“Yeah, let’s scandalize the locals,” Jack agreed and popped the doors.
Jack Horwood hates owing favors. But when a simple day out to treat Gareth to the best oysters in England leads to a discovery of drugs and counterfeit money—things that neither Jack nor Gareth have the jurisdiction to handle—he has to call in help. Help that doesn’t come cheap, and that forces him to do something he promised himself he’d never do again—walk away from Gareth and the family he’s starting to make for himself.
Three months undercover is a long time. After missing Gareth’s birthday, Jack is determined not to miss their first anniversary. But coming home and being home are two very different things. So when he is asked to assist with a corporate espionage investigation, Jack can’t say no, despite knowing it will impact his already straining relationship.
Except, of course, he’s walking into a trap….
