Morning My Angel: Just 1 Day to Go


1 day until the release of Morning My Angel!

Today's teaser!

“Let’s start again,” Jesse said. “We didn’t get off on the right foot.”

Josh smiled dangerously. “You’re going to tell us what the fuck is going on?”

Jesse hesitated but then he nodded. “Let’s meet the team again.”

“Do we have to deal with Mr. Plummy—fuck….”

Jesse gave him an amused look. “Tall guy? Built like a brickie? Stunning eyes.”

Josh had no idea what a brickie was, but the eyes were right. “If he’s the one you were talking to in the lobby, then yes.”

From the way Jesse laughed, Josh got the feeling the joke was on him. He took a deep breath, doing his best to keep his temper.

“Yeah, he’s part of the team. Don’t worry, I’ll stick a lead on him,” Jesse promised.

“A lead?”

“You call it a leash.”

Josh had a sudden image of the green-eyed man naked, handcuffed and clipped to a leather leash. “I can live with that.”

Blurb: 

Josh Cooper, top US security field agent, is sent on an inter-agency assignment to London, when a partner in his firm goes missing in suspicious circumstances. Used to working in sole charge of his well-honed team, he clashes heads with the handsome, but pompous Cal, his UK co-operator and superior. Josh’s gut tells him something is wrong. He’s being kept out of the loop and Cal’s agenda is running on a different path.

He also has a personal issue to deal with. He’s involved in a cyber-relationship with “Charlie”, an unknown man who connected with Josh by accident. Their banter has led to deeper respect and a sexual interest, but now Josh is faced with a growing attraction to Cal. Between this conflict and the tension of the mission, Josh’s heart and head are overworked and confused. Things can’t get much worse.

Then Josh discovers the enemies he’s seeking have a new target: him.

Wet Windy Writer's Retreat

Today was a wet and windy day at Steephill Cove. Not a day for sitting outside but definitely one for dramatic views and lots of writing. I think we've all worked hard today. I'm averaging just under 5k a day which is better than usual. I might just be catching a lot of Pokemon too.


Morning My Angel: 2 Days to Go


2 days until the release of Morning My Angel!

Today's teaser!

Josh had spent some time investigating the firm but he did what he was asked, taking the opportunity to stare at the man’s butt as he followed him. Sue him, Josh was an ass man and this man had a spectacular one, tight and pert. Josh was tempted to flip a nickel off it until he looked up and realized Cal had glanced over his shoulder and caught his gaze. Oh shit! Josh raised an eyebrow, challenging Cal to make it a problem but he seemed more amused than anything else.

Being Happy: My Writing Retreat

Sunrise over Steephill Cove by Jason Dean

I'm away this week at my favourite place in the whole wide world, the Isle of Wight. This is probably the first time for ages I'm not here for 'research', for the Isle series. I'm on a writing retreat for a week, with K.C. Wells and our friend, Jason, in Steephill Cove.


Thanks to K.C., I've finally managed to a) stay in the Lighthouse, b) go on a writing retreat, and c) write in the place that gives me inspiration. Steephill Cove kickstarts my mojo in a way nowhere else does. Facebook has reminded me this week that I was here just a year ago, with K.C. Believe me, if I could, I would live here every day.



Just sitting listening to the waves, I managed to create the plot for Alpha Barman I'd been stuck on for a month. I won't take a photograph of the spiral plotline I drew because my writing looks like a drunk spider wandered over the page.

I have eaten and written and drunk (a lot) and written and walked and written, and yes, even played Pokemon Go and written. Can you tell how happy this makes me?


Jason and K.C, are very easy-going companions. We all have our need to decompress here, and this is the perfect time. Writing becomes a joy, not a chore. 


By the end of the week I hope to have kicked Alpha Barman into touch, and have something concrete to show my editor when I get back. In the meantime, I'll keep posting the photos and tell you all about my week. Sorry, so not sorry.





Morning My Angel: 3 Days to Go


3 days until the release of Morning My Angel!

Today's teaser!

Josh indulged in a few minutes of thinking about tanned twenty-year-olds in tight shorts then snorted out loud. They wouldn’t pay any attention to him now anyway. He was over thirty. O.L.D. Still, there were plenty of older men who looked great in shorts. With that ass, Cal would look phenomenal in real short shorts. And why exactly did that wayward thought make him feel guilty about Charlie?

Morning My Angel: 4 Days to Go


4 days until the release of Morning My Angel!

Today's teaser!

Josh regained consciousness as someone shouted loudly in his ear. He wished they’d shut up because Freddie Mercury was doing the fandango inside his skull. Then a large, warm hand cupped his jaw, and Freddie was blissfully quieted, the world narrowing down to that one touch.
