The Sunny Side

Blurb

Jonas Durand is successful, rich, and controlled. He owns a prestigious modelling agency and has the world at his fingertips, but a turbulent childhood has taught him to be focused and never deviate from a plan.

Dean Jacobs threatens that stance. He’s one of the world’s most sought-after supermodels, but he’s also laidback and lighthearted and free in a way that Jonas has never quite managed.

Dean has always been interested in Jonas and has never made any secret of his admiration, but from the beginning, Jonas put him in a neat little box labelled, “Don’t touch,” turned the key, and never looked back.

However, the universe seems determined to thwart Jonas’s plans. Over the course of one hot summer, the two men come together, and Jonas’s well-ordered life becomes something a whole lot wilder.

Moving from the glamorous worlds of London and Paris Fashion Weeks to the sleepy South of France, Jonas finds himself liberating partridges, chasing his supermodel, and falling in love.

From bestselling author, Lily Morton, comes a romantic comedy set in the fast-paced and snarky world of modelling. This is the first book in the Model Agency series.

Excerpt

“Oh god. Not you too.”

I frown at him. “Pardon?”

“You can join his fan club over there,” the policeman says. He gestures at the old woman who was just speaking to him. She’s now watching a man blowing bubbles with a dachshund dressed as a clown perched on his lap. The dog looks like he’s pretending this isn’t happening to him. “We’ll be bringing Mister Jacobs up in a bit,” he adds.

I stare at him. “He’s not being charged, then? My lawyer is on his way.”

“No need for that.” He leans closer. “He was really brought in just to keep the peace. No one was hurt, and as the hotel doesn’t want to press charges and neither does the lady concerned, then there isn’t anything that needs to happen. We just left them in the cells to sober up.”

“What exactly happened? Mr Jacobs wasn’t very forthcoming when he rang my assistant.”

“I’m surprised he could speak. He was rather drunk when we brought him in, and he’s slept through most of his time in the cell. I wish they were always that obliging.”

“Oh, he’s always obliging,” I say grimly.

He looks behind me, and as there’s no one waiting, he unbends a little. “Apparently, he was in a hotel room for the night and went to the bathroom. When he came out, he went right rather than left and ended up naked in the hotel corridor.”

I sigh and pinch my nose. “Oh god,” I say faintly.

His mouth twitches into a half-smile. “Then he compounded his error by letting himself back into the hotel room. The only problem was that it wasn’t his hotel room, and the old couple it belonged to were rather startled to find a six-foot-four naked supermodel trying to get into bed with them.

Blurb

Life in foster care wasn’t easy. Life after prison? Unforgiving. But I’m determined to stay out of trouble, and I’m gaining a foothold on the closest I’ve ever known to normal.

Then, thanks to a pair of escape artist dogs from the sanctuary where I’ve found work, I cross paths with my boss’s neighbor, Ty Adams. He’s a horse trainer, and winter is his quiet season. It’s also the season when he gets restless and lonely—two things I know all about. He’s not interested in love or romance. I’m just happy someone’s interested in me at all, even if emotions are strictly forbidden.

When we’re not together, I’m thinking about him. When we are together… Well, I’m definitely thinking about what he does to me and what I want to do with him.

As we keep each other warm through the Vermont winter, this feels a lot more than physical. Somehow he soothes my pain, and I wonder if I’m touching something deep inside him too. But Ty won’t let himself love anyone. I never had a chance. And now, with my past closing in, I could lose the one man I hoped I could count on. The one I thought might be different.

When his present and my history collide, is it too much to hope he’ll choose me?

About The Author

L.A. witt logo

Of course, it would seem a bit silly to have a single site for multiple authors who aren’t collaborating, but therein lies the rub: we’re all the same person.

Yes, yes, it’s true.

But why use multiple names?  Simple: Different names write in different genres.

L.A. Witt writes almost exclusively gay male romance (including everything from contemporary to science fiction), plus some trans*/genderqueerLauren Gallagher writes heterosexuallesbian, and bisexual romances.

Lori A. Witt sticks to sci fi/fantasy and mainstream suspense (both of which may contain some LGBT and/or romantic elements, but are predominantly SFF). Ann Gallagher writes sweet romances and young adult, including asexual romances.

And finally, Diana Fyre writes horror (coming soon). So the different names just help readers quickly find the stories that interest them without needing to search through genres that don’t.

This is the place for updates and info about me, myself, and I…or, more importantly, the books.

I always love hearing from readers, so feel free to e-mail me or follow me on Twitter.

Two very different men find love and healing in this great romance

UnderdogWitt_ebookUnderdog by L.A. Witt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Following on from her last entry featuring former sports start Brant and single dad Jon, we get the story of their neighbour, horse trainer Ty.

One thing’s for sure about this book, Lori knows her horses, the level of detail is excellent but never overdone.

I loved how the horses, with their unique personalities, were as involved in the story as Ty and former convict Landon are.

Both men frustrated me intensely at times, Ty with his stubborn determination that he couldn’t have a relationship because of his business, Landon because of his feelings of unworthiness.

The main antagonist element of the plot I spotted a mile off, but Lori still does a good job at weaving in the tension leading up to the crisis point.

Sexual UST is high between the two men and when they do finally get it on, there’s some really lovely and emotionally driven intimacy.

The Epilogue is an absolute delight and had me smiling for ages after I’d finished reading.
