Free Read: Coming Home

I’ve just done battle with All Romance Ebooks, Smashwords and Goodreads and I *think/hope* everything is working as it should be. If not, I may need gin later. But I’ve uploaded a free short story called Coming Home (details and links below).

As anyone who has read any of my books will know, I’m British. We don’t do Thanksgiving over here. But I love the US tradition of thinking about things that we are thankful for at this time of year. One of the things that I’m very thankful for is that there are people out there who are buying and reading my books, and telling me that they’ve enjoyed them. So here is my way of giving a little something back to my readers. I hope that those of you who are celebrating Thanksgiving have a wonderful holiday.

Love Jay

Jago returns to his home in the wilds of Cornwall, and is looking forward to catching up with old friends after a term away at university. When he’s reunited with Will—his best mate from sixth-form college and last summer’s fling—Jago’s feelings for him are rekindled and impossible to ignore.

Over the short winter break, Jago can’t resist taking whatever Will’s offering. But will the New Year bring new beginnings? Or will Jago be left with more bittersweet memories and a heart that needs to heal again?

    Thank you very much!

  2. I just finished reading it and absolutely enjoyed it! Very sweet with a touch of hot. 🙂 I could relate to Jago and his feelings, and I appreciated the pace the story moved with. You’ve provided just enough detail about the protagonist’s life for us to understand his backstory and see where he is now. I loved how you kept building and building the tension between Jago and Will. I’m not just talking about UST, I’m talking about unresolved feelings in general: the longing, the confusion, the hope that kept growing and when it finally all crested at the end, it was done just right.
    And then this:
    “We’ll be missing the midnight kissing frenzy,” Jago said. “Do you want to go back?”
    “Not yet.” Will sat, pulling Jago down by his hand and they sprawled there together,
    leaning against the wall, their fingers linked together. “Anyway,” Will added, with a tension _ in his voice that made Jago turn his head towards him. “You’re the only person I want to kiss.”

    That scene truly touched my heart, and that’s on top of the fact that those two boys together were very very hot.

    Great story, great Thanksgiving gift! Here’s my big THANK YOU to you for it!
