For aerialist, Cary Stilwell, aside from performing forty feet in the air, life holds little comfort until he meets Rhys McIntyre, who punctures all of Cary's defences.


Cary Stilwell has been existing since he was ten years old, and each year it gets harder to find meaning in his bleak life. The only exception - his work. As a top-billed aerialist in a popular travelling circus, he enjoys accolades and applause, but little else. When notable photographer, Rhys McIntyre, joins the circus to catalogue its inner workings, Cary fights the attraction that hits him from the moment they meet. But a kind soul wrapped in a beautiful body has a way of battering all the walls Cary has built around his cold, dark heart.


Rhys McIntyre is on his third iteration of reinventing himself. Once a hotdog financier, he embraced his passion for photography and became an eminent war photo journalist. Until one too many bullets lodged in his body, and he gave up the front lines for the softer side of chronicling life. When he accepts the assignment to record life in a circus, the last thing he expects is to find the man crush of his dreams. Except Cary Stilwell is a cold, tortured man who seems incapable of any warm emotion, never mind love. But Rhys is known for his persistence, and this time the pay-off might be more than he could have ever imagined.

A throat being cleared interrupted my inspection of the skies and I sat up, squinting into the sunlight. The person moved, and the sunlight disappeared.

“Cary, mi amor, I have someone I’d like you to meet. He will be travelling with us for a while from next week.”

I stood up, looking over at Greta, narrowing my eyes against the sunlight. “What do you mean? Why do I need to meet anyone? Wasn’t it enough I was at the dreadful birthday celebrations you concocted for me?”

“Be nice, my friend,” Greta warned. “Rhys is a lovely man, and he will be with us a few months, doing a coffee book feature on the circus and taking photos. I know you don’t do company, but you might make an exception for this one.” She winked.

I stared at her. “Why?” A sudden feeling of panic traversed my spine. I didn’t need or want friends of any sort.
She shrugged.


“I think he swings your way, and he is easy on the eyes. You’ll have the devil of a time keeping Stefan and Emil from drooling on him and inviting him to one of their nightly soirees. Rhys is cute—and he’s a redhead,” she said with a smirk and a lascivious lick of her lips. 

I scowled, wishing that in one drunken moment many years ago I hadn’t told her about my predilection for men with copper and auburn hair. There was something about the colour that got me going. 

I pushed that memory away and glared at Greta. “Not interested. I’m sure he’s a great guy but leave me out of the introductions. I’m sure there are plenty more people in the family he can amuse himself with, Stefan and Emil included, if that’s what he wants.”

I've created my own e-book in pdf format and this is my cover. Something simple and sweet, like the MM YA story it is.

This is the book you'll get access to when you subscribe to my newsletter. It's not been in wide circulation so it's exclusive just for you:) To my existing subscribers, the download link will be included in my next newsletter, as I don't think you should miss out because you've been with me a while :)

Vincent Lowry had lived all his life in fear of two challenges he’d been born with. It was only when he met the outspoken out and proud Pollack Nazari that he realised those challenges needed to be owned, and his stain of shame wasn’t so bad after all.

The ‘unofficial’ stuff…


She loves going to the theatre, live music concerts (especially if it’s her man crush Adam Lambert) walks in the countryside, a good G and T, lazing away afternoons reading a good book, and watching re-runs of Silent Witness.


Her chequered past includes stories like being mistaken for a prostitute in the city of Johannesburg, being chased by a rhino on a dusty Kenyan road, getting kicked out of a youth club for being a ‘bad influence’ (she encourages free thinking) and having an aunt who was engaged to Cliff Richard.
