Lights, lovers…action!

Born to old Virginia money, film producer Kyle Wakefield’s conservative upbringing kept him in the closet. Only once did he venture outside: for a tempestuous teenage affair with Nathan Carnes. When Nathan’s self-destructive streak landed him in prison, Kyle slammed the door on youthful hopes. Despite Hollywood successes, he still hides his true self.

He thought he’d moved on, until his production company hires Nathan and his Second Chances stunt crew to work on the London set of a big-budget action flick. Watching Nathan risk life and limb with fellow ex-cons looking for a fresh start makes it tough for Kyle to keep his desires hidden.

Thirteen years have passed since Nathan’s teenage self-doubt led him to sabotage any chance of a future with Kyle. He’s come a long way since then, but despite their explosive sexual chemistry, Kyle treats their attraction like a deep dark secret.

Their matched Hollywood ambitions and a pain-in-the-ass director make cooperation essential. As the London holiday season casts its spell, the two men find themselves on the verge of falling in love again—even as old secrets and pain keep them shackled. The only hope of unlocking their hearts is a Christmas miracle.

Warning: This book features a snowy London Christmas, sex on a pool table, a hot-and-dirty gay nightclub, and naughty references to candy canes.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Porter (Carrie Lofty and Lorelie Brown, authors of Double Down) tackles the story of closeted gay producer Kyle Wakefield and out-and-proud stuntman Nathan “Nate” Carnes. The two meet at a posh boarding school—Kyle from old Virginia money, Nate the scholarship-supported son of a truck driver—and plan to spend the rest of their lives together before Nate makes a colossal mistake and ends up serving a three-year prison sentence. Fast-forward 10 years: Kyle hires Nate’s stunt company, Second Chances, to work on a Christmas movie being shot in London. After a quick, heated tryst with Kyle, Nate tries to keep his distance, refusing to be anyone’s dirty secret. Will Kyle be true to himself, or live out the life others expect for him? Porter does a masterful job of guiding him to a satisfying answer. (Dec.)

—Library Journal

“This is the perfect piece of erotica: nuanced, complex, dirty, loving and intimate. The sex is scorchingly hot, but it’s made infinitely sexier by the layers of emotion that the team behind Katie Porter gives their characters.”
