Excerpt

Daniel listened as Joshua’s breathing slowed and evened out. Reaching over for his phone, he tried to ignore his painfully hard cock and mentally urged patience. He could wait. He peered at the screen, and sadly acknowledging he needed to wear the glasses he had and had been avoiding, he blew out a breath. He wasn’t fooling himself that Joshua had been so eager because he was helpless not to fall for Daniel’s good looks or rapier wit. Daniel clamped his free hand over his mouth before he let out the snort of laughter that bubbled up and woke Joshua up. He glanced over at him, again knowing he was lucky to catch Joshua needy with no available outlet. It was simply that. Twenty-somethings were all horny as hell and Daniel had just been convenient. He wasn’t about to fool himself into believing there was any other reason.

He gently brushed the short dark hair away from Josh’s closed eyes. Not that it was long enough to get in the way—it was merely an excuse to touch him—and he stared at the sleeping young man. He needed to sleep and he was sure the people downstairs could all get their own dinner… well, not the guests. He thought about that one for a minute. Maybe he ought to wake Joshua up? Or maybe I can help? Josh would have been frantic about the visit from the lawyer and he probably hadn’t slept. He slid his arm out and held his breath as Josh murmured something incoherently but settled down again. He covered him with the comforter, resisted the inexplicable urge to kiss him, and quickly got dressed.

He walked down the steps and headed for the kitchen. Charlie was standing in the middle of the floor, shaking. Matt was trying to calm him down and there was no sign of anyone else. Charlie looked at Daniel in alarm. “Joshua’s missing,” he declared dramatically.

Daniel tried not to roll his eyes. He wasn’t obviously, but he wasn’t about to say where he was. He didn’t want to make it awkward for Joshua.

“He’s nowhere,” Charlie burst out. “He’s not in his room and Matt searched everywhere outside.”

Daniel’s eyebrows rose and Matt had the grace to look uncomfortable. “I could understand your concern if it was say…three a.m. and he’d been absent all day, but we’re talking an hour, maybe two since I’ve seen him certainly,” Daniel reasoned. It had been considerably less but he was trying to avoid saying that.

Matt sighed. “It’s not that. It’s just we’re getting another guest and she’s gonna expect a cooked meal and we’re all crap in the kitchen.”

“Who’s crap in the kitchen?” Angie asked as she opened the screen door.

“We are,” Charlie decreed.

Angie looked puzzled. “So, Josh’ll be here in a minute,” she reasoned. “Mark and Graeme have taken supplies for a barbeque on the beach, and Mr. Teasdale is away for two days. There’s no panic.”

“But May-belle is coming,” Charlie shrieked, and Angie paled.

“Where’s Josh?” She rounded on Daniel for some reason.

“Who’s Mabel?” Daniel asked, stalling for time.

“It’s May-belle,” Angie corrected. “Specifically, May-belle Delange. Clive Delange’s elder sister.”

“Is this something to do with the lawyers?” Daniel asked. Angie shot him a suspicious look. “Joshua told me,” he added quickly.

“Yes, and no,” Angie replied, collapsing onto one of the chairs. “She has no pots of money to save the hotel, but she has a lot of influence in the local community. Josh was hoping she could help get things moving a little.”

“We need to find Joshua,” Charlie’s voice rose in panic. “Did he go on the beach?” Charlie’s eyes grew round. And Daniel gave up before Charlie could imagine a shark attack or something.

“He’s upstairs in my room,” Daniel admitted to stop Charlie panicking. “He was asking about possible marketing campaigns and to be honest the guy’s worn out. He fell asleep.”

The silence could have filled Carnegie Hall.

“I didn’t want to say where he was because I didn’t want the kid to be embarrassed.” There—“kid” was a nice touch. Made him seem all fatherly, and Daniel tried not to let it make him want to slit his wrists, or at least order a walking frame. Hell, throw in a pipe and some slippers and he might as well pick out funeral hymns.

Rainbow Key - an idyllic island retreat off the west coast of Florida. Think wedding destination, white sandy beaches, lurve… except at the moment Joshua is struggling to pay the electricity bill, they’ve no paying customers, and even if they did they can’t afford the repairs from the devastating hurricane that struck three years ago – and to top it off they have to take in Daniel, a grumpy businessman who has been ordered by his doctor to take some time off before he has a heart attack from too much stress.

Funnily enough, Daniel owns a very expensive hotel chain that has been trying to buy the island for the past two years. Not that Joshua knows that yet, and boy are sparks gonna fly when he thinks he’s been set up.

Of course, sparks of a different kind are also soon flying between them.

Then there’s Matt who just got let out of prison, Charlie who ran away from home, and Ben, a famous model until a devastating house fire destroyed his face.

Welcome to Rainbow Key – held together by love, family, and sticky tape.
