When Joel Jones finds homeless Russian, Sasha, outside his gay nightclub in Prague, he cannot find it in his heart to turn him away, so he offers him a home and a job as a dancer and stripper.
Despite a fifteen-year age gap, romance develops between them, but is interrupted when Joel has to return to England for many weeks to deal with a death in the family.
Upon Joel’s return, he is horrified to discover his business partner, Karel, has gambled away the club’s money and put them all at risk. Joel buys him out of the club, but when Karel continues to gamble, the people he owes pursue Joel for the debt instead—and they’ll stop at nothing to get paid.
Suddenly Joel and those he cares about—especially Sasha—are in danger, and Joel finds himself with no choice but to seek the help of known criminal, Vincenc Jankovic. Ensuring a happy future for himself and Sasha will mean a struggle and some difficult decisions, but Joel is determined to protect what they’ve built together.

Sasha’s eyes lit up as he smiled at me and he spoke in little more than a whisper. “I want you too.”
I glanced around us, noting only two tables close to us were occupied. Four young women surrounded one, and two guys held hands across the other. I twisted in my seat, lifted my hand to cup Sasha’s cheek, and guided him into a kiss. I caressed his parted lips with mine and slipped my tongue into his mouth, just enough to taste the red wine he’d sipped moments earlier. He whimpered softly as we kissed, and I slid my hand from his cheek to the back of his head, gently massaging his scalp through his silky hair. My cock swelled and pushed against the fly of my suit pants. I drew away reluctantly and turned my attention back to my meal. I longed to touch him, and the memory of that one brief episode in the club’s kitchen taunted me, keeping me hard as I plowed through two courses of food and a little too much wine.
“Would you like to order dessert?” The waiter had cleared our plates from the table and returned to take another order. “Or coffee?”
“No, thank you. Bring the bill, please.” I pulled out my wallet in readiness to pay for the meal. “We can have coffee at the club,” I added when Sasha appeared surprised. “Or at my place perhaps?”
He smiled and glanced up at me coyly through lowered lashes. “I haven’t seen your place yet.”
“Damn it, you look sexy when you do that,” I muttered. I’d been half-erect throughout lunch and hadn’t been able to get the thought of touching him out of my mind. I looked down, casting my eyes over the gray and white striped shirt he wore, to the waistband of his smart black pants. The bulge of his arousal made my erection swell a little more. I yearned to undress him and explore him, but more than that, I wanted to hold him in my arms, cuddle him and kiss him, let him know how much I’d grown to care for him, despite the length of time we’d been apart.

It’s all about the author…
Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy. Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered FanFiction in her late twenties.
Posting stories based on some of her favorite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing “hobby” more seriously.
Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long-distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races into the house afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.
Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and joy, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.
…and stalking them :)
