Overview

Is there room for love in a heart full of secrets?

One year ago, before Fate took a wrecking ball to his life, Nichol was happily working on his doctorate in linguistics. Now he's hip deep in sheep, mud and collies. His late brother and mother had been well suited to life on Seacliff Farm. Nichol? Not so much.

As lambing season progresses in the teeth of an icy north wind, the last straw is the intruder Nichol catches in the barn. He says his name is Cam, and he's on the run from a Glasgow gang. Something about the young man's tired resignation touches Nichol deeply, and instead of giving him the business end of a shotgun, he offers Cam a blanket and a place to stay.

Somehow, Cam quickly charms his way through Nichol's defenses and into his heart. Even his grandfather takes to the cheeky city boy, whose hard work and good head for figures help set the farm back on its feet.

As the cold Scottish springtime melts into summer, Nichol finds himself falling in love. When tragedy strikes, Cam's resolutely held secret is finally revealed and Nichol must face the truth. He's given his heart away, and it's time to pay the price.

Warning: Contains explicit M/M sex and the disruption of a quiet Scottish town by a fistfight and some tight designer jeans.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Author Harper Fox draws characters that are magnificently realized, flawed and human even down to the most minor of secondary character.”
—RT Book Reviews

“It’s very rare to discover a writer who is as talented as Harper Fox. Her work is consistently very well written, her characters complex and engaging and the plots of her stories draw us forward without awareness of the spell being cast.”
—Reviews by Jessewave

The Salisbury Key had me captivated from beginning to end with its brilliant story of adventure, intrigue, and passion. I immensely enjoyed Harper's writing style...I highly recommend The Salisbury Key to anyone who appreciates a love story that's perhaps a bit more complex, but very satisfying.”
—Queer Magazine Online

Meet the Author


Harper Fox is the author of six critically acclaimed M/M novels, including Samhain’s Driftwood and The Salisbury Key. Her novels and novellas are powerfully sensual, with a dynamic of strongly developed characters finding love and a forever future—after the appropriate degree of turmoil. She loves to try and show the romance implicit in everyday life, but she writes a sharp action scene too.

    I cannot. I simply cannot. Scrap Metal was too good for words an

    I cannot. I simply cannot. Scrap Metal was too good for words and I don't care what anyone else says. Listen to me! I'm the one that is rooting for this fabulous book (okay, I should probably calm down, right?), but I cannot handle even explaining how much this book has affected me. Scrap Metal is the first M/M book that I have been able to read cover-to-cover. All of the other books I have attempted to read have just been homo-erotics and I do not have time for any of that. I love gays, and I love novels and I'll be damned if I don't love gay novels. 

    Even writing this review has made me all smiley and happy inside. 

    As I've said before, Scrap Metal is M/M book that actually has a plot-line (gasp!). The book is about Nichol, a fellow that lives with his grandfather, Harry, on Seacliff Farm. The family is minding their own business when Nichol stumbles upon a man (okay, boy-child) in his barn. He brings the boy, Cam, inside and finds out that he's in a bit of trouble. Nic lets Cam stay in his barn for the night and thank God he didn't leave, because how else would we have a story? I'm not going to give any more away, besides the fact that Cam starts working for Harry and if that doesn't give the whole story away, I don't know what will.

    Anyways, Harper Fox has written a deliciously descriptive, tantalizing and captive story that I will certainly read many times over. How could you not? I just cannot get over the fact that Scrap Metal actually has a story line. I guess I have been looking in all of the wrong places when it comes to wanting to read a story with main characters who are gay instead of straight. 

    The characters were deep and even though they both had a dump truck of emotional things happen to them, they didn't become "stereotypical gays". I hate that. I hate how authors (not Ms. Fox) have to make their homosexual characters turn whiny and like limp noodles whenever anything bad happens. Just. Don't. (I'm not trying to offend anyone who may happen to be homosexual, I'm just stating a reooccuring trend in entertainment). I love, love, love Nichol and Cam when they are together and even when they are apart. They can both handle their own and despite how they act in "real life", Cameron surprised me when it came time for them to have sex. I had been led to think that Cam would be on bottom (okay, stereotypes were getting to me), but Ms. Fox threw out a wild card with the waterfall scene. You go girl.

    I beyond thankful to find this diamond in the rough and I will certainly read more of Ms. Fox's books.

    A majestic story

    Having close to 650 pages the novel goes deeply into forming a story with depth. The characters are well created and story is almost believable. It is a gut wrenching story of loss, but also of love found. Bravo Harper Fox keep the novels coming !

    So, how about an actual review...?

    Harper Fox has hit another one out of the park. Translation: splendid story with lusty, lovely, emotionally injured characters that just need time to heal in order to walk tall again in the sun. Absolutely LOVE the depth of her writing!

    Scrap Metal

    Scrap Metal is simply exquisite. A beautiful tale of complex intense and damaged people trying to find their way through life, hoping to understand and forgive themselves and each other for their choices. This is a slow read and worth every second of Harper Fox's lyrical style. I loved her characters; I cried, laughed, and smiled while reading. Just a beautiful wonderful novel. Please read.

    Rockpaw (StarClan cat)

    Rivertail and brairsong are in my old clan. I know how you feel Metalpaw. I was only trained by my mentor once and then he was gone and the leader, who was my mother, never gave me a new mentor. I was an apprentive for, like, ever. Then I was attacked by a wolf and was dying. And since no one cared enough to help, even after the fire, I died. No one even noticed I was dead.
