A sweet & sexy gay romance – slow burn, age gap, class difference, opposites attract, witty banter.
Entrepreneur and amateur romance writer, Freddie Faulkner, fears that life is passing him by. From his ivory tower—his luxury London penthouse—he writes of princes and their handsome sentinels, but ever since a bad break-up a decade ago, Freddie’s own heart has been locked away in the deep freeze. Now in his late-thirties, he’s too set in his ways to imagine he’ll ever find someone new to defrost his heart.
Young Eden Stone has had it tough. Originally from New York, his beloved mom died when he was just fourteen and his Brit dad dragged him, kicking and screaming, to start a new life in London. Eight years later, with his dad now remarried and living in Scotland, Eden uses all of his God-given gifts to make a life for himself. For years he suffered from the lingering insecurities every motherless boy has to deal with. The piercings and tattoos he now bears are a testament to his journey of self-discovery. He’s finally happy in his own skin, except for that one problem he can never resolve—the big hole in his heart where a mother’s love ought to be.
Eden is a stunner even with his clothes on and the well-endowed twenty-two-year-old is rocking it as a stripper at a swanky nightclub. When Freddie offers the reluctant Eden a generous sum to perform at a private function for a friend’s fiftieth birthday, Freddie soon discovers there’s a whole lot more to Eden Stone than just his looks. Smart-mouthed, witty and intelligent, Eden is also sensitive, emotional and petulant.
A fiery young spirit and an arrogant irascible older man.
They really shouldn’t get involved.
This is no match made in heaven, but sometimes you just have to tell heaven to go to hell.
