May 17, 2014:

To celebrate the return of MySexySaturday I have seven paragraphs from THE COP AND THE DRIFTER. A love story between a pair of very unlikely characters.



By Christiane France


When they first meet in the woods and Brad takes in Davie’s small stature and pretty-boy looks, he assumes the kid is just another runaway. As a cop, Brad has learned to recognize the signs. But Brad is already in trouble with his superiors, getting suspended for "assuming" something on another case, so now he knows better than to assume anything.

Davie, actually in his early twenties and far from being a child, escaped a horrible past and is now living from hand to mouth as a drifter. Homeless and starving, he meets Brad in the woods, and despite their differences, can't fight the immediate attraction he shares with the older man.

But with both men still trying to deal with their troubled pasts, they quickly realize it's just not the right time to begin a long-term relationship. When they meet a year later, however, and they feel the same attraction to each other, will they be able to follow their hearts without their pasts coming back to haunt them?

The hall light flicked on, the door opened, and the next thing Davie knew was that he was in Brad’s arms as Brad pulled him inside and pushed the door shut with his foot.

“This has been the longest week of my whole fucking life,” Brad muttered as his mouth found Davie’s and he eased Davie’s lips apart.

Davie closed his eyes, loving the way Brad tried to suck his tongue, followed by a slippery game of hide and go chase. Even if things didn’t work out the way he hoped, even if— No! He was pretty sure he now knew what love was and what it wasn’t. Love meant stepping through a door into a kiss and a hug, and knowing you’d been missed. Unless he was very much mistaken, what he and Brad had found together was definitely the real thing.

As they came up for air and broke apart, Davie remembered the plastic-wrapped package in his hand. Amazingly, it was still intact.

He handed it to Brad. “Here, this is for you.”

“A gift for me?” Brad frowned as he started to unwrap the gift, but the moment he pulled back the paper to reveal the single, perfect red rose, his frown changed to a smile, and Davie noticed a suspicious glint in his beautiful dark eyes. Brad lifted the flower to his mouth and brushed his lips against the petals. “Does this mean what I hope it means?”

“It means I love you. I love you with all my heart and all my soul.” He wrapped his arms around Brad’s body and pulled him close. “Unless, of course, you have a problem with that.”

Cool mysteries and hot romance -
