Once upon a time a brave knight rescued a young man. Unfortunately, he then spent the next few years bossing the young man around and treating him like a child.
Milo has been burying himself at Chi an Mor, hiding from the wreckage of his once promising career and running from a bad relationship that destroyed what little confidence he had. Niall, his big brother’s best friend, has been there for him that entire time. An arrogant and funny man, Niall couldn’t be any more different from the shy and occasionally stuttering Milo, which has never stopped Milo from crushing wildly on the man who saved him.
However, just as Milo makes the decision to move on from his hopeless crush, he and Niall are thrown into close contact, and for the first time ever Niall seems to be returning his interest. But it can never work. How can it when Milo always needs rescuing?
From the bestselling author of the Mixed Messages series comes a story about a man who needs to write his own happily ever after.
This is the second book in the Finding Home series, but it can be read as a standalone.

What is the biggest influence/interest that brought you to this genre?
I’ve been reading MM romance for a long time. I started out writing a MF series about a band, and in the third book I wrote a character who was the bass guitarist’s best friend. Matt was gay and very funny and I had so many requests for his HEA that I decided to write it. It was only intended to be a short story, but I loved writing the couple so much it became a full book. Then I wrote the story of a grumpy boss and his sarcastic assistant which was Rule Breaker, and I never looked back. I love this genre.
When writing a book, what is your favorite part of the creative process (outline, plot, character names, editing, etc)?
I love the bit when I’ve finished the first rough draft of the book. The nervy and almost compulsive part of writing the book is done, and I can then go through it adding things and refining the dialogue.
When reading a book, what genre do you find most interesting/intriguing?
I love the best friends-to-lovers trope which you can probably tell because I’ve written three books with that theme. I love the layers of history between two people and the banter that this allows, and I find it fascinating to see what spark urges them to change their dynamic.
If you could co-author with any author, past or present, who would you choose?
That’s so hard because I wouldn’t wish my writing process on anyone. I’d have to say it would be with friends who share a similar sense of humour, so Edie Danford, SE Harmon or Hailey Turner.
Have you always wanted to write or did it come to you "later in life"?
I’ve always been a huge daydreamer and used to think of countless plots for books, but I just dismissed that as something I couldn’t do and got on with my life. Then, my husband and parents encouraged me to give it a go, and I discovered how much I loved it.
