I’m really excited about my upcoming release this month on the 28th April. It’s book seven in my Men of London series. The story for Damaged Goods carries on from Feat of Clay, which featured sexy undercover cop Tate Williams and his charismatic lover, former SAS soldier Clay Mortimer. In this book, I introduced a character called Jax, who crept in from nowhere and lodged in my heart. Jax is damaged, scarred both emotionally and physically, and he’s looking for someone to love and learn about sex and life. He’s also a horny young teenager desperate to find someone to show him the ropes 🙂 Then he meets Dare, who is older, wiser and he’s determined not to let Jax move too fast into the world of sex and relationships. Even though it’s killing Dare not to act on the feelings he has for his blond feisty ‘angel’.
I guess this is a New Adult story given Jax is eighteen going on nineteen and Dare is twenty five. It’s sweet, romantic, a little sad in places and to me epitomises the concept of hope. It’s proof that there’s someone out there for everyone no matter what they look like or who they are.
Beware- a quirky sweet shop, an old gypsy caravan, horses, a bully, an endearing little brother and two tough alpha males with Jax’s best interests at heart feature in this story. As well as the blossoming of young love, lots of first times and some sweet and tender moments.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
Tragedy and horror shaped Jackson Grady’s life, leaving him orphaned and scarred. At eighteen he’s ready to claim his future, but who could love his disfigured face and damaged soul? Definitely not a big, burly, beautiful Irish Traveller who is entirely the stuff of dreams.
Dare Rowan didn’t mean to become obsessed with the blue-eyed man he first saw across a field, but that porcelain skin and innocent air demanded another meeting. Jax has the face of a wounded angel, and the rest of the young man is as heart-breakingly perfect. Jax is beautiful in every way and teaching him about love and life will be something Dare will embrace. Like unwrapping and savouring the candy at the shop where he works, Dare will show this young man everything Jax desired but never thought he’d have, and take Jax to new highs while he holds him through the lows. Between them, they’ll find out just how sweet life can be.
