Cover Reveal, Excerpt & Giveaway:
By Vawn Cassidy
Belong to Me, Book 1
Releasing July 23rd
A surprisingly sweet, sinfully sexy, and deliciously funny romp along the Cornish coast.
Nathan Elliott has run away from home at the age of twenty-six. His teenage rebellion may have come ten years late, but better late than never. Leaving behind a world of wealth and privilege, and a strict patriarchal family that would never except a gay son, he’s ready to embrace life and make up for lost time, but nothing’s ever that simple. A coin toss, a delayed train, and a wrong bus later, and Nat finds himself in a small bay in Cornwall being hauled out of the ocean by a gorgeous stranger and wondering how the hell his life got so off track.
Beck Ainsley lives life by a very simple ethos, don’t get attached, don’t get involved and don’t fall in love. He’s been there, done that and got the t-shirt that reads I’m a gullible idiot. Now, he keeps his life simple; all he needs is his dog, his art, his rambling sea cottage overlooking the bay and a few choice waves to surf. He’s not looking for love or commitment, but when he ends up plucking a posh boy from London with incredible blue eyes from the ocean, Cupid doesn’t just shoot him with an arrow, he clubs him senseless with the bow too.
One simple agreement. A summer fling, a chance to act on the insane attraction between them with no strings attached, and at the end of the summer they walk away.
There’s just one problem, fate is a fickle and capricious creature, and she has no intention of letting them walk away unscathed. They’re about to discover that sometimes the heart wants, what the heart wants…
From author Wendy Saunders writing as Vawn Cassidy, comes this hot and sweet, first time, MM romance that will leave you laughing out loud and singed from the heat…
Special Cover Reveal Excerpt:
There’s a man hunched over me in concern as I lie on the freezing wet sand, wheezing and coughing the seawater from my lungs and spread out, rather unattractively, like some sort of graceless starfish.
I blink again, but all I can focus on is a pair of incredible hazel-coloured eyes. They’re staring at me, hovering just above my face. For a second, I’m still disorientated, so caught up in the golden amber and vivid green depths encircling those dark pupils, I almost miss the flash of fury until his sharp words penetrate the fog surrounding my brain.
‘What the hell were you thinking?’ he snaps angrily, raising his voice above the violent boom of the waves and the howl of the wind. ‘Are you stupid? Have you got no sense of self-preservation? Why the hell would you stand that close to the water’s edge during a fucking storm? What the fuck did you think you were you doing?’
It immediately raises all my hackles.
‘Re-enacting the shrimp boat scene from Forest Gump,’ I snap indignantly in response, humiliation burning my cheeks. ‘What do you think I was doing?’
For a second, we stare at each other breathing heavily, and just when I think he’s going to yell at me again, I see the corner of his mouth twitch in reluctant amusement.
‘Well, Lieutenant Dan, did you make your peace with God or were you trying to prematurely join him?’ he asks after a moment.
‘Neither,’ I huff and find myself impulsively grinning at the ridiculousness of my current situation. ‘It’s just the latest example of my rather questionable decision making skills.’
He blinks at me as if momentarily dazed, and my smile dims at his silence. He’s gorgeous I realise, swallowing hard.

Vawn Cassidy is the MM pen name of author Wendy Saunders. She lives in Hampshire in the UK with her husband and three children. She writes Supernatural and Contemporary Fantasy Fiction as Wendy Saunders and Romantic Suspense as WJ Saunders.
Suddenly Beck is her debut MM novel and was borne of her love and enjoyment of MM Romance.
