Overview

When the boat's a rockin', don't come knockin'!

Out-and-proud travel writer Dan Taylor can't steer a boat to save his life, but that doesn't stop him from accepting an assignment to write up a narrowboat holiday. Instead of a change of pace from city life, though, the canal seems dull as ditchwater. Until he crashes into the boat of a half-naked, tattooed, pierced man whose rugged, penniless appearance is at odds with a posh accent.

Still smarting from past betrayal, Robin Hamilton's "closet" is his narrowboat, his refuge from outrageous, provocative men like Dan. Yet he can't seem to stop himself from rescuing the hopelessly out-of-place city boy from one scrape after another. Until he finds himself giving in to reluctant attraction, even considering a brief, harmless fling.

After all, in less than a week, Dan's going back to his London diet of casual hook-ups and friends with benefits.

Determined not to fall in love, both men dive into one week of indulgence...only to find themselves drawn deep into an undertow of escalating intimacy and emotional intensity. Troubled waters neither of them expected...or wanted.

Warning: Contains one lovable tart, one posh boy gone feral, rough sex, alfresco sex, vile strawberry-flavoured condoms, intimate body piercings, red thermal long-johns, erotic woodchopping, an errant cat, a few colourful characters you wouldn't touch with a bargepole, and plenty of messing about on the river.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Tattoos, piercings and an attitude problem…never get old with me. Add an accent and an unconventional setting and I’m completely hooked and won over. I do hope this author gives us more work of this quality.”

—The Romance Reviews on Barging In, 5 Star Top Pick

“Insta-Love is a quick, creative, and surprisingly emotional futuristic tale…”

—Joyfully Reviewed

“There is a lot of subtle wit, humor, and great writing that delivers [in] this charming short.”

Cute story about 2 people, almost opposites, finding each other. The interesting life of living on a boat in the canal (certainly not for me!).

This was a great read and far more emotional than I would have thought from the description. I loved both characters and the sex was hot!!
