Overview

Limericks, lies, and puppy-dog eyes...

Jude Biggerstaff is all the way out and loving it-mostly. The Anglo-Japanese university graduate is a carnivore working in a vegan café, an amateur poet with only one man in his life. His dog, Bubbles.

Then there's "Karate Crumpet", a man who regularly runs past the café with a martial arts class. Jude can only yearn from afar, until the object of his affection rescues him from muggers. And he learns that not only does this calm, competent hunk of muscle have a name-David-but that he's gay.

Jude should have known the universe wouldn't simply let love fall into place. First, David has only one foot out of the closet. Then there's Jude's mother, who lies about her age to the point Jude could be mistaken for jailbait.

With a maze of stories to keep straight, a potential stepfather in the picture, ex-boyfriends who keep spoiling his dates with David, and a friend with a dangerous secret, Jude is beginning to wonder if his and David's lives will ever start to rhyme.

Warnings: Contains a tangled web of little white lies, a smorgasbord of cheesy limericks, a violin called Vanessa, some boots that mean business, and the most adorable little dog ever. Poetry, it's not...

—Jessewave on Pricks and Pragmatism

“I really enjoyed the book. I loved, as I always do, the utter Englishness of your voice. I loved your characters… And I thought it was a really sweet love story that asked some deep questions without seeming to do so.”
—Dear Author on Muscling Through

Hard Tail was an enjoyable book from beginning to end. Cheerful, funny and heartwarming, these characters showed how strong love can be.”
