I twisted Douglas' arm and got him to re visit us with...

A Secret Love...

That cover gives me shivers...of the nicest type...

About the book:
‘A Secret Love’ is Douglas Black’s first outing with Evernight Publishing. Part of their ‘Romance On The Go’ range, ‘A Secret Love’ is a steamy M/M erotic romance, published on July 11th and is available from the following retailers.


James is nervous when he pulls into the car park of the secluded and conservative Caledonian Hotel. He slips off his wedding ring, gives a false name at reception and checks into his room.

When Mark finally arrives James expects their time together to conform to the usual pattern, but Mark surprises him. Mark wants candlelit dinners and walks on the beach. James, well, James just wants to make up for lost time. More importantly, he doesn’t want to get caught. They have six months left before they can leave behind everything they know and start a new life together and James is desperate to be discrete. Unfortunately, he never could control himself around Mark. Throw in an interfering old couple and some very public displays of affection and Mark and James’s short hotel stay might just be about to destroy not only the secrecy that has always shrouded their relationship, but also their plans for a future together.

Mark returned the kiss passionately. James trembled in his arms. Tension coursed through his body and he could feel it mirrored in Mark’s. He could almost taste the other man’s nerves in his kiss. James savoured Mark’s strong arms around him. He pushed his hands inside Mark’s suit jacket and clung to the warm, toned body underneath. The body was so familiar despite the amount of time that had passed since their last meeting.
            “God I’ve missed you,” James said when he finally pulled away. Mark was breathless and didn’t respond at first, but the sexy, playful smile on his lips told James everything he needed to know. James took his hands and led him further into the room.
            It was a large suite with living area and a huge bathroom. Mark swung a new sports bag, bright orange and emblazoned with sponsorship logos, off his shoulder and dumped it onto one of the two couches. He paused momentarily, reaching into his suit pocket.
James watched as Mark pulled out his phone and turned it off without checking for messages. He waited patiently until Mark had tucked it safely into his bag and smiled at him when he had finished. “Difficult getting away this time?” he asked.
            Mark nodded. “I left as soon as I could. I was so scared I was going to miss the flight. I’m sorry it had to be mid-week this time. Will you get in trouble at work?”
            “I have the flu.”
            Mark smirked. “You look perfectly healthy to me.”
            “It came on all of a sudden,” James said, closing the space between them. “Unexpected. Probably be gone in a few days. You know how these things are.” Mark nodded and James slipped into his arms once more. With his head on Mark’s shoulder, he turned to whisper against the other man’s neck. “I wouldn’t have been able to stand it if you had missed the flight, if you had cancelled. It’s been so long. It’s always so long.”


Five Things You Really Didn’t Need to Know About Douglas Black

1.     The only subject Douglas Black failed at university was Latin. He received an overall mark of 4 out of 20 for the semester and final exam combined.
2.      Douglas Black is firmly (and perhaps solely) of the opinion that garden peas taste like soap. He continues to eat them regardless.
3.     Should the day ever come when Douglas Black is elected Prime Minister, he will introduce an on-the-spot driving ban for people who fail to indicate correctly at roundabouts.
4.     Buzzy, flappy and long-legged insects freak him out. He doesn’t mind snakes though.
5.     Douglas Black freely admits that he probably drinks too much wine. Usually bad wine, at that.

and what you do...
