Cover Reveal ~ Separation by Louise Lyons

 

 

Title: Separation

Author: Louise Lyons

Release date: March 31, 2017

Length: 45,000 words

Cover design: Simon Searle

 

 

Matthew Langford is told on his twenty-first birthday that he has a twin. After the initial shock, he quickly realizes this is why he always felt part of him was missing. His search takes him 200 miles to Devon, UK, where he meets fraternal twin, Tremaine Wheal.

The pair discover many things in common, and quickly become as close as if they’d never been separated. But when they share a moment in a nightclub, each realizes there is more between them than having shared a womb. Panic sets in and they part. Once again their separation brings loneliness and pain.

Eventually, unable to stay away from each other, they tentatively move forward together as lovers. But secrets don’t stay secret for long, and discovery and questions threaten their happiness.

Note: This is a taboo story featuring twins.

 

 

Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy.

Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered FanFiction in her late twenties. Posting stories based on some of her favourite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing “hobby” more seriously.

Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad dog called Casper, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long-distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races home afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.

Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and job, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.

But when their father goes one step too far and introduces Weldon to their lives, it sets off a series of events that will change all their lives.

Review

This is certainly the stuff of nightmares: an abusive, uncaring father who pimps out his virgin son for booze money, a so-called friend who gives Jake drugs in exchange for blowjobs, plus an evil boss-man who claims this beautiful boy for his very own, but needs to destroy him first.

Gah! No wonder Jake takes drugs and wants to die. And yet he needs to protect his younger brother from their father.

Trey provides the only ray of light in Jake’s hellish life when he frees him from Zach’s clutches and saves his virginity. I’m wondering whether Trey will be the hero in the end and somehow come to Jake’s rescue again. After all, his cuddle was enough to aid him after an overdose. “Maybe because he was vulnerable and that made me want to protect him. He triggered something in me, something primal and instinctual.”

Yet at the same time, I’m also considering whether he and Weldon are the same person as there are hints to Trey being messed up and trying to restrain himself with Jake. Just wondering which dark path Kol is heading on with these guys…

Indeed Weldon is a mystery. Who is he and why does he want Jake so much? More importantly what’s going through his mind? He obviously gets turned on by seeing and hearing Jake suffer. He’s a scary man who has power and authority over his men. He gives the impression he can do anything he wants and can control others to do his bidding. At first, he appears to be rescuing Jake from his obnoxious father, only for us to find out Weldon’s intentions are even more despicable. As Trey says right at the beginning, “The world is always falling apart.” I was surprised by his last act considering Weldon wanted the boy so much. Jake wished to die before this, but now… I’m amazed he survived the violation.

As you read, you’re wondering what dark thing is going to happen next. The situation seems pretty hopeless towards the end of this instalment. And seeing the incest tag to the series, will Weldon force Jake and his brother/father into some non-con acts and use them to inflict more pain and suffering?

Kol writes suspense well. His characters and storyline are all engaging. There are some beautiful lines I especially like in the beginning of Trey’s chapter. “I wanted to be inside him, and I wanted him to be so captivated by me he forgot whatever it was that made his eyes sad, or gave him that cut right above his brow.”

Kol Anderson fans will love it!

Yes, there.

Not a tree or a bush.

A man. Definitely the build and outline of a man.

A tramp, perhaps.

Neither of us moved or made a sound.

I blinked again. The woods smelled earthy, dank, and airless.

I caught a flicker of light out of the corner of my eye and turned my head.

 

Thank you for reading!

Something swooped towards me. I instinctively ducked, a shriek escaped my throat, and my glasses slipped down my nose.

An owl screeched and flapped its wings above my head.

I stood, straightening my glasses with a shaky hand. My heart pounded as I waited, not daring to move.

I peered into the more distant shadows again. Was that someone standing there staring at me? I blinked. Was I imagining the whites of someone’s eyes?

Reaching the wall, I placed my hands on the damp stone and gripped it hard. I drew in a calming breath, prepared to leap back, frightened that something or someone would jump up and scare the life out of me. I peered into the gloom, giving my sight the chance to adjust to the darkness. Tree trunks and branches, undergrowth and smaller bushes came into view—nothing untoward.

I removed my suddenly cold hands from the wall.

A soft rustling drew my attention downward. A mouse or rabbit, I hoped, although I tensed again anyway. That eerie, uneasy feeling persisted.

I had the distinct impression I was being watched. A shiver rippled along my arms and the hairs prickled from my skin as a chill swept over me.

Man up, Rhys. There’s no one out there.

And just to prove to myself—and my ex—that I could man up, I’d pull up my big-boy pants and check it out all on my own.

Goddammit, why am I even thinking about Myles tonight?

I’d successfully shut him out of my mind for most of the day and all of the past few weeks.

Leaves rustled on the ground on the other side of the stone wall.

Yet there was no breeze on this calm evening. The branches remained still.

Yes, there it was again—definitely movement. Perhaps a cat or some other animal scurrying around.

I sat up in the chair, alert, my back erect. Not that I was the nervous type. Myles would have laughed and called me a fucking wuss. I huffed. He’d have probably been right.
