MySexySaturday - September 17, 2016 - Crossing The Line -

For this week’s edition of MySexySaturday I have seven paragraphs from CROSSING THE LINE, a contemporary m/m romance. There is no magic in this book in the accepted sense, but when Alex falls for his chauffeur and realizes his feelings are reciprocated, they waste no time in making a little magic of their own.


Crossing The Line
Christiane France

Rather than embarrass his wealthy family by admitting he’s gay, Alexander Derkeston solved the problem by publicly conforming to their old fashioned, upright, uptight lifestyle, and inventing a second life on the side.
Even after his parents are killed in a traffic accident and the pretence is no longer necessary, Alexander still continues to follow family tradition and keep his private life private. Then the family chauffeur retires, and Wil Forrest is hired in his place.
For Alexander it’s love at first sight. Wil is everything Alexander has ever wanted. But Wil is an employee, and when he suggests the two of them go clubbing together, Alexander is horrified. Old Abner Derekston had two rules the family has always lived by: One, never cross the line by getting overly familiar with the help, not if you want to maintain their respect. And two, if you want something, go for it.
Is there a way Alexander can have his cake and eat it, too?

“…I’m not going to ask what made you change your mind. I hoped you would, and now I’m just glad you did. Really glad.”
The sudden brightness in Wil’s dark eyes and the depth of emotion in his voice caught Lex by surprise.
“You are? Why’s that?”

“Because…” Wil averted his gaze. “Obviously, you’re gay or you wouldn’t be here. Same goes for me, but…”
“But what?”
“I want you. I thought maybe you knew. I haven’t stopped imagining the two of us together since the first time I drove you to the store.”
“Really?” Lex felt a sudden heightening of tension between them, as if something was about to explode. He wanted Wil more than he’d ever wanted anyone. He’d wanted him for weeks; he just hadn’t admitted how he felt until today, and he hadn’t thought past that. Not for one moment had he stopped to think how Wil might feel. And even in his wildest dreams he wouldn’t have thought there was a chance the wanting might be mutual. “I had no idea. I…”
